Many of the Windows Phone users like to record audio which could be from a concert or an interview they want to record or could be a public announcement. There are tons of apps available in Windows Phone store which allows you to record and they all come with features which make them stand out. Today, I have handpicked a couple as recommendation which you can use on your phone.

Best Pocket Recorder Apps for Windows Phone

Now before we dive in with details, one should know that the quality of recording depend on type of Windows Phone you are holding. As an example, you can expect Lumia 920,. 925, 1020 and 1520 to record a lot better audio compared to low end phones like the Lumia 525, 625 and so on. The former phones have better microphones and in fact 1520 comes with 4 microphones which record audio from its closest source.

Below are two set of apps. One which are feature rich and there are a lot of options post recording which includes editing. The second set completely concentrate on recording but are beautifully designed and come with some basic feature we expect from all the apps. Also the apps have trial, free and paid mode.
