NCH Software, a leading provider of audio and telephony tools, has just released Pocket WavePad for the iPhone. (There's not yet an iPad-specific version.) It lets you record audio and edit the recordings, apply audio effects, reduce background noise, and easily email or upload the audio files that you've recorded.
Utilities improve or extend the capabilities of your device—in sometimes simple and often unique ways. In this section you'll find apps that help you tune musical instruments, convert measurements, track shipping, plan your garden, track and manage the battery and memory of your iPhone, and a lot more. There are almost 9,000 of these useful apps available, and most of them are very inexpensive.
