Any operating system update invariably results in changes: some for the good, some bad, some totally unexpected.

Voddio bug with iOS 7: The problem and the fix

The new multi-tasking protocols in iOS 7 will inadvertently STOP RECORDING AUDIO if the screensaver kicks in, or if the Screen Lock button is pressed.

Here’s the fix:

Change the Auto-Lock timer to “Never” before starting a recording session.

You can make this switch in Settings, in the General category.

The down side: the “Never” setting chews up battery life.

Vericorder is aware of the bug, and apparently working on a fix.

As Voddio is my go-to field recording and editing app, I hope they find the fix quickly.

iOS 7 update: How to turn your iPhone into a microphone

Just say no to old-fashioned phone interviews.

With a few simple steps, a reporter or newsmaker can record near-studio-quality audio on an iPhone, using the built-in Voice Memos app.

The interface for iOS 7 is different than previous versions, but the principles remain the same.

In iOS 7, you can now email up to 15 minutes of audio – a big improvement over previous versions.

If the file is too large to email, Voice Memos allows basic trimming, in the Edit function.

iOS 7 has a very nice new Edit feature – the option to Save As New Recording, or Trim Original.
