The sound-recorder built into the iPhone and iPad is too basic for lawyers who need to do more traditional features of dictation equipment. A few months ago, I learned about a great dictation app called Dictamus that I use almost daily, Dictamus Dictate & Send ($14.99).
Like a traditional digital recorder, one can rewind, overwrite and insert anywhere within the audio recording. Once you are finished with the recording, download the recordings, send as e-mails, or upload to Dropbox, MobileMe, FTP or WebDAV. Many attorneys use Dictamus to email dictation to a virtual assistant. I use it to record my timesheets when I am on the go so I capture more billable time.
