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

Best Pocket Recorder Apps for Windows Phone

Before we dive in with details, one should know that the quality of recording depends on the type of Windows Phone you are holding. For 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 that record audio from its closest source.

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