Never Lose Key Points ... or Eye Contact Again
• Start the recording and each time you hear something you'd like to recall, jolts you with an "aha", simply touch the screen and mark it. A highlight point will be added.
• Add as many highlights as you'd like.
• A little slow on making the mark? You can set the highlight to automatically shift back a few seconds.

Say Cheese
• Take a photo while a recording, or add one after-the-fact during playback (iPad only).

Improve Your Listening
• Playback your recording in whole, or instantly jump to your marked highlights allowing you to quickly access key information and data.
• You can add more highlights in playback mode too.
• Variable speed playback: .5x, 1x, 1.5x and 2x.

Share the Good News
• All your highlights, notes and other recording data are stored within a single, small audio file, making it easy to share the “aha” experience.
• Send via email.
• Upload a recording to Dropbox.
• Open Highlight recordings in Box, Evernote, iMovie, Google Drive and more with support for iOS "Open In" feature.
