Friday App Shout-Out: Smart Recorder

Going to be a short one today, as it's been a very busy week so far (had 30 new windows installed in my house this week and 3 presentations at MoDevEast between yesterday and today), and not done yet (Microsoft Store Workshop tonight and CMAP Code Camp tomorrow).

At MoDevEast today, I had the pleasure of sitting down with local developer Ken Roe, creator of the Smart Recorder app for the Windows Store.

Smart Recorder


Smart Recorder is an app for recording audio, and provides some neat features that make it very useful for capturing audio from a meeting, or similar tasks. You can tap the Add Tag button to tag a particular section of audio with a snippet of text. Great for highlighting something you want to make sure to review later. You can also add a picture to a section of audio, to capture who's speaking or such.

The app also shows the audio waveform as it's being captured, and supports pinch-to-zoom on the recorded audio, making it easy to zoom in on a particular section of interest.

Congrats, Ken on a nice app...always great to see solid apps from Mid-Atlantic developers!

Who's Next?

Would you like to be next? You can get links, videos, and 1:1 technical or design consultation (limited availability, so don't wait) for free at Generation App. Sign up takes only a few seconds, and the resources can help make you the next app rockstar.

Drop me a note if you're working on a Windows 8 app and have questions or need advice. Check my blog frequently for opportunities to sit down with me or one of my peers during our Windows 8 Office Hours (like today at 4pm at the Tyson's Corner, VA Microsoft Store, before our Windows 8 Workshop on UX Design tonight)
