iPad Apps That Sync Audio With Notes: A Visual Tour

Tired of frantically taking notes during meetings, then searching through your audio recording afterward for information you missed? Relax: any one of these apps--Audiolio, AudioNote, and SoundNote--is capable of synchronizing the notes you type into your iPad with the audio it records for easy retrieval. We have the full review and this visual tour.

Audiolio, the least expensive of the apps at $1.99, lacks the paper notepad metaphor that can make some note-taking apps easier to learn. However, its brief text-with-audio tutorial quickly teaches new users how to take notes synchronized with audio.
