Just Press Record, a stellar alternative to the built-in Voice Memos app that Apple ships with its iOS, is now better than ever thanks to a recent update which adds support for 3D Touch.
One of the reasons Just Press Record is such a great app is because it features Apple Watch compatibility. Unlike Voice Memos, Just Press Record on the Apple Watch allows owners to initiate voice memo recordings from their wrist, and to have these save onto their iPhone handset. Moreover, the improvements made to the Apple Watch as of watchOS 2 mean Just Press Record is fast, reliable, and feels like an app developed by Apple itself (the app, for instance, captures audio using the Apple Watch’s built-in microphone, and it can play the memo back using the built-in speaker, too).
So, how could developer Open Planet Software make Just Press Record even better? Well, by adding 3D Touch support, of course.
As of version 1.2, then, Just Press Record on Apple’s iPhone 6s and 6s Plus allows users to perform 3D Touch gestures in order to start and stop recordings from the Home screen. You can also "peek and pop" to view lists of recordings, too.
Finally, and in an improvement made available for all users of the application, Just Press Record allows folks to swipe to delete a recording or an entire folder (and its contents). All of this makes using and navigating Just Press Record easier than ever. To recap, then, here’s a complete list of changes made in version 1.2 of the application:
- Support for 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus:
- Start and stop a recording from the home screen with a Quick Action.
- Peek and Pop the contents of folders in the list of recordings.
- It is now possible to swipe to delete a recording or an entire folder and its contents in the list of recordings.
You can download the improved Just Press Record now on the App Store, and as mentioned, it’s optimized for the iPhone/iPod touch, iPad, and Apple Watch. For anyone searching for a voice memos app for Cupertino’s smart watch, look no further.
