Record a Voice Note on Evernote for Android Devices

By David E. Y. Sarna

Sometimes, you’re on the go and don’t have time to type or tap and fix notes in Evernote for your Android device, particularly with the “help” of autocorrection. You spend more time fighting your keyboard than getting stuff done. If you’re hurrying to your next location, recording voice notes is the perfect way to catch your thoughts before they flit off into oblivion.

3Tap the Checkmark icon when you’re done recording.

On an Android device, when you touch the Checkmark icon to stop the recording, the audio automatically attaches to the note. If you want to listen to your recording, tap the audio portion of the note.

4(Optional) Click in the note area to type text.

If you want to add notes or text to any of your recordings, you can do that, too. After you create your recording, just click in the note area and begin typing. Best of all, you can add the text from any device, not just desktop computers or laptops.
