Differences between two versions of Recorder Plus

There are two versions of Recorder Plus.

Sometimes it leads to confusion to users.

We will explain differences between these two versions and help users to make their choice in this article.

  1. iPhone free version (free)
  2. iPad free version  (free)

All these two versions of Recorder Plus are independent.

iPhone version can run both on iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.

iPad version is optimized for iPad and can only run on iPad.

If you have purchased iPad version, you still need to pay $2.99 again for iPhone version to let the app run on your iPhone/iPod touch.

So basically we recommend purchasing iPhone version, because it can run on all iOS devices (iPhone/iPod touch/iPad).

All these two versions have the following basic features:
