Need an online voice recorder that’s not Flash? Croak It!
Fans of online voice recorders like Vocaroo, Soundcloud and Aviary’s Myna know that these web apps have many uses. Students can use these for things like storytelling, summarizing, explaining concepts, etc. But one of the major drawbacks (relatively speaking) is that these are all Flash-based . That is not all bad in itself. However, since Flash is on the way out and is not supported on iOS devices, a replacement is needed to fill this void- especially one that will work on iPads!
There are many options out there, but Croak It! is by far my favorite for a couple reasons:
- No registration required (this is critical for student use)!
- Free (this is also critical in our line of work)
- Has both Android and iOS apps
- Can also be used online with a computer as a Flash-based web app
- Creates a unique URL for each recording
- Can add a CroakIt! button to your own website!
- By default, the recording is private only to you (or whoever has the URL to your recording)
- Can post to Twitter or Facebook
- And I love the frog logo!
