Hindenburg Systems Field Recorder

I have to hug my Samsung devices from keeping me from going over to the iOS side. I do think the Apple products are well designed but way over priced. The apps, however, keep me peeping over the iOS fence. So many apps, so little money to buy them all.

The Hindenburg System Field Recorder app I can see possibilities for storytelling use or as a means of laying down an audio or poetry track.

This is one of many tutorial videos on the Field Recorder app

Field Recorder is designed for journalists or storytellers that need an efficient and affordable workflow in the field. It makes it simple to record, light edit audio, add photos and then upload to the service of your choice.

On the plus side:

It will help you create, edit and upload a complete audio or audio with photos file no matter where you are, so long as you have a data plan or access to wi-fi.

It is not expensive at $29.99 but you have to look at if the software fit in with with you skill level and current recording needs.

If you have a daily podcast and you have a hectic life this might be what you need. If you want to lay down an audio track and later match it up to a video later this might do it for you. If you want to post directly to SoundCloud to extract later this could be your cup of tea.

This app will let you import audio WAV files but not MP3. Then again you have an effective audio editing studio in your hand. You can download a 30 day trial version of the main program from the web site so do that before you plunk down cash money.

On the minus side:

It is iOS dang it!

Eh, sorry about that. Where was I? Oh yeah. $29.99 might be overkill. There are free and less expensive apps that can record video.

If you know how to work with file folders, Audacity or Garage Band then this app might not be for you. If you are willing to covert AAC files then again it could be a winner.

This is the entry level version of the app. You might have other needs to check out the full product line or other vendors before making a purchasing decision.
