ios Feature Request: Recording Audio

Idea

The only thing stopping me from integrating Evernote and Penultimate into my daily routine is the lack of audio recording in penultimate.  I currently find penultimates handwriting input to be far better than the app I'm using (notability), but the lack of audio recording is a deal breaker.

 

I'm an attorney and attend lots of meetings with other lawyers and clients.  During these meetings, it is far more efficient for me to record the meeting and jot down a time stamp that something important was said.  This way, I don't need to worry about copying down everything someone says, but I can simply write down the time they said it and a quick note as to what it relates to.  Later, while writing I can listen to the recording at the time stamps I jotted down and repeat exactly what the person said.

 

This work flow would work spectacularly using penultimate where I could upload the audio and notes to Evernote and do everything from my computer.  

 

I realize that Evernote for iPad can record audio notes, but I don't have a time stamp (i.e., how long I've been recording) displayed so that I can jot down the time in the recording when something important was said.

 

Please add this feature!

I started with Penultimate after notability also. Penultimate use to have audio recording and text capability. I just discovered yesterday that Penultimate had been significantly reduced in function, no doubt because of redundancy in Evernote.

My feature request to the developers: Please, please, keep Penultimate a fairly minimalist note taking app. Please don't turn it into another one of those notes apps with a built in browser, recording, window washing, calendar functions. There are enough of those out there. I love that Penultimate essentially just lets me write things and have them synced to Evernote.

Sorry, but a little audio wouldn't go amiss! Minute taking is a prime example. Browser - no, calendar - no, window washing - if Penultimate could save me getting on a ladder, then great! (sorry)

I agree that voice recording is an absolute requirement. Without it I won't be moving away from my current note taking app and it constrains my choice to make Evernote my go to solution.
