mi mic now fully iOS compatible

After a long gestation period, extended by iOS 4 and iPhone 4 arrivals our audio recording App ‘mi mic’ is finally available. This is a major upgrade to the App that includes the following new features:

  • iOS Support, both play and record audio in the background
  • Headset control of playback – play/pause and next/prev track the same as iPod music controls
  • iTunes file sharing
  • Send recordings via FTP
  • Vibration feedback for start/stop and pause/resume
  • New suite of graphical configuration settings screens
  • Retina Display high resolution image support

iOS background execution support means that mi mic can now provide the same recording and playback functionality that Apples built-in recorder does. Start playing your recording then switch to Mail or Safari and continue to listen to it. Similarly with recording, start to record then switch to other apps as required and then back to mi mic to save it.

iTunes file sharing brings a really simple way to get your recordings off the iPhone if you’re running version 3.2 or higher. When your iPhone is connected to iTunes via its cable click on your phones icon in the iTunes sidebar and then the App tab. Underneath the Apps configuration dialogue is a section that lists all of your Apps that share their files via iTunes and mi mic will appear there. Simply select the files you want to transfer and click the save as… button to store on your mac or PC.

mi mic can now FTP your recordings to a remote FTP Server if required. This is useful in quite a few situations including corporate environments. FTP Server settings are configured through the iPhone Settings App and they appear beneath the existing email settings.

I’ve had requests to add vibration feedback whenever mi mic pauses or resumes. This has been added in addition to the existing vibration feedback when recording starts and stops. Some users need to know when audio volume rises above a configured level without looking at the iPhone screen. This allows them to monitor how loud a particular environment is (or how loud they are talking) discretely.

The configuration screens have been updated to enable the extended settings to be access without excessive scrolling and to make them more consistent with Apple UI standards. Here’s a small sample of the new look:

I hope existing mi mic users find the new feaures useful and recommend to their friends!
