Let’s face it – there is an app for pretty much everything these days. Whether you are using an iPhone or an Android device there’s a wide range of speech-to-text apps out there; we are going to talk to you about what we recommend as the two best professional mobile dictation apps currently on the market and in the App Store…

Philips Voice Recorder App

The Philips voice recorder app offers first-class recording quality and professional functions such as inserting or cutting sequences and a user-friendly interface for intuitive operation. Recordings can be easily sent via email, Dropbox, GoogleDrive, etc.
