The Intention Behind DropVox

Imagine if your digital camera stopped and asked you to name each photo after you took it or popped up a file system for you to choose where to save it. This is how most voice recorders work on iOS; always getting in your way.

DropVox is streamlined to record and upload voice memos to Dropbox; there’s no need to name files or choose where to send them. If you need more control, DropVox might not be right for you, but I encourage you to consider how I use DropVox.

I tried a lot of recorders and all felt needlessly complex, so I wrote DropVox to scratch my own itch. I find peace and comfort in the simplicity of its workflow. Peace comes from getting things off my mind as I quickly capture ideas when waking up, reminders while getting into my car, or insights when reading articles. Comfort comes from knowing that these snippets are in my Dropbox so I can process them when I'm ready. Part of my morning routine involves listening to everything I captured from the day before.

I have personally found many benefits by embracing this workflow:

  • Recording all my ideas seems to encourage more and better ideas to flow.
  • Reviewing tasks in audio format forces me to focus on one thing at a time.
  • Letting a task sit for a few hours before taking action can often bring further insight or even render the task unnecessary.
  • Listening to audio reveals the emotion and energy behind a thought, which might be lost if I just typed it into a note or to-do app.
  • Sharing an audio file with Dropbox can be a much easier and more effective than sending an email.
