Used to be if my Voice Memo was too big, the iphone would just keep the band practice recording of my dreams locked up up within its touch screen dungeon. No sharing allowed and no synching either! Trapped! Forever!

Course I could downloaded an extra desktop application to open sesame the drive and pull the booming bass from its carefully protected shell. But without saving that app to my dock and then taking an extra step every time I plugged the little guy in, the files would just sit on my phone where only one pair of ears can listen. And these were some quality jams!

Now-a-days Voice Memos live where they should - on the phone and also in the iTunes Music folder, along with music made by the pros. I still want to see the share button work its magic for me, but for now I’ll take the synch and send. Gracias internet blog comments.
