  • QuickVoice is an app that I love and at the same time REALLY want it to get a modern update. I really like the ability to email recordings and the ability to manipulate the sound quality. This makes it easy to shrink recordings to send them and to increase the sound quality when in a busy place to get rid of some of the distortion. However, the look of the app is incredibly dated. It reminds me of the layout in the iPhone 3Gs. In the future, I hope the app gets a much need makeover and the ability to turn voice to text.
  • How do I setup my computer to automatically update folders onto a removable drive upon insertion?
  • I have a lot of bookmarked websites part of Blogspot that I check daily for updates, but it is so annoying to click through a list. If I make an account is there some sort of feature where I can see new posts on the websites? (Sort of like Subscriptions on Xanga)?.
  • Hello! I simply want to give you a big thumbs up for your excellent information you have here on this post. I'll be returning to your site for more soon.
