App Store Description

Dictapad is a transcription app for the iPhone and iPad. It assists in the transcription of lectures, interviews, depositions or any long audio file by playing back at an adjustable rate while you type.

Best experienced with the iPad Smart Keyboard or a Bluetooth keyboard.

Dictapad offers handy keyboard shortcuts that allow you to scrub through your audio, adjust playback rate and insert timestamps — all without ever lifting your hands from the keyboard. In addition, on-screen buttons allow for easy control of playback if you are using the on-screen keyboard.

You can get your audio into Dictapad in several ways. You can:
• Browse your Dropbox files from within Dictapad
• AirDrop audio files from your Mac or iPhone
• Bring audio files in from other apps, like Voice Notes or Mail
• Use audio files from your iTunes library
• Copy files into Dictapad's folder in iTunes File Sharing

Once you're done transcribing, Dictapad allows export to your other iPad apps that accept text files, like DropBox, Pages, Notes or any iPad text editor. You can also print directly from Dictapad using AirPrint.

If you experience any issues with Dictapad, please get in touch at [email protected]; we can usually respond within a couple of days.

Five-star reviews for Dictapad:

“I conduct a lot of interviews that need to be transcribed, and this is by far the best tool for doing so. I've never had a problem with it - it just works.”

“With this app, I’ve come close to transcribing audio at 3/4 speed without stopping, where my old method… could take 2-4 minutes per minute of audio.”

“I have been using it for more than three years and I am very happy with this app.”

“For the price, this app is a no-brainer.”
