To create a new entry in Audio Notebook just open the app and tap the “+” symbol to create a new entry. To add audio to your notebook entry tap the record button. You can pause and restart your recordings as often as you like. To add text to your notebook entry just tap the screen to open your keyboard and write your notes.

Audio Notebook could be a great iPad app for students to use during lectures. Having the audio recording to fall back on could be helpful when text notes fail to include a key detail. Audio Notebook is also a good iPad app for journalism students to use to record their interviews.
