Screenshots: Record your notes using one of these free tools

Introduction

When you need to take a note, but you don’t have both hands free, what do you do? You dictate. If you take a look at the Google Play Store, you’ll find plenty of tools ready to take your notes. Some are straight-up audio recorders; others are voice-to-text apps. Both options are viable solutions, so I decided to highlight some of each here. Whether you’re looking for an audio recorder or a speech-to-text note tool, one of these will certainly meet your needs.
