Hi Gerry,

I've been using Evernote on my iPad, Droid phone, and computers. It has a
built-in recording feature that I've used on the iPad. I like the app quite
a bit. I have tried it in staff meetings and it collects audio in a small
group setting just fine.

The limiting factor is the microphone sensitivity and location on the
device. It does work, but unless speakers are very close to the mic (within
six feet or so), or amplified, the mic will have a problem capturing useful

That's a limitation of the hardware and I don't think there's any way to
hook an external mic to an iPad other than bluetooth and I haven't tried one
of those.
