FiRe Recorder (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
When you absolutely need the highest quality solution for recording, editing, and exporting audio with your iPhone, the FiRe recorder app offers unparalleled features. Whether you're capturing an interview or recording live music, FiRe offers all the options of an audio recorder costing several hundred dollars. You get a waveform editor, editable markers, overdubbing, location tagging, adjustable file quality settings up to 16bit/44kHz, multiple export formats (WAV, AIF, AAC, Flac, Ogg Vorbis, and Apple Lossless), Broadcast WAVE metadata, and more.
A killer feature for me--which no other portable recorder can match--is an integrated SoundCloud uploader for posting your recordings directly to the Web, along with pictures, location info, and other metadata. Also, the app works with the highly rated Blue Microphones Mikey adapter. The app has yet to be updated for iOS4, so don't go throwing $9.99 at it until you're sure it will work for you.
