Just Press Record has just been released in the App Store! Just Press Record is a very simple but very useful app for the Apple Watch. With the press of one button, you can record voice memos right from your wrist. These recordings don’t even need the iPhone to be present. But they will sync to iCloud Drive once an iPhone is detected. This way, all your voice memos recorded with the app will be available on all your devices. Pretty cool!
