How is it possible that no one has tried using Voice Notes Recorder on theZ10?

Switched from a Torch 9810 to Z10.  I use Voice Notes Recorder a lot in meetings.  I can't find this function on the Z10.  I can't find anyone asking where this is.  I can't believe that I'm the only person who has a Z10 who uses the Voice Notes Recorder.  What am I missing?  I need to be able to record long meetings but cannot figure out a way to do this on the Z10.  Can anyone offer any guidance?  thanks..

Wow...you are right, it does not seem to be there! But there are 3rd party apps in BBWorld to do the same thing...a quick search there on "Voice Note" revealed two options, one free and the other paid.

Good luck!

Check that...I looked deeper, and found Voice Notes within the Remember App. If you create a new item there, one of the options is to include a Voice Note. As I consider the intent of the Remember App, that actually makes some sense (as a way to file the item and be able to find it later).

Cheers!

They should really add that to the Help documentation.

In exploring my storage areas (as part of getting WiFi access going), I came across a folder called "Voice Notes" (or something similar)...that told me there just had to be a way to do this (otherwise, the device memory format would not even create such a folder). So I kept digging and, in experimenting with something else for the Remember app, saw the icon to create a Voice Note...and the proverbial light bulb above my head exploded! Fortunately, it had not been too long since I'd posted my first response in this thread and I was able to find it again to post the correction.

 

Cheers! And you are most very welcome indeed!
