Cogi – Notes & Voice Recorder Reviews

    Reviewed in Form+Function

    Cogi makes your note-taking experiences more comprehensive; you can now record speeches and photograph diagrams while jotting down notes within the same app. This app is only useful if you have engaging meetings or lectures worth remembering, of course.

    A very handy app to record a meeting and take photos and notes simultaneously. You will never miss that important idea or quote.

    A new discovery - it's a voice recorder with a twist. Start the recording, then tap the big orange button when someone says something interesting. Review clips and add notes and photos. Great time-saver!

Cogi is an easy-to-use, free and ad-free note taking and voice recording app that allows you to capture the important parts of meetings, lectures and conversations, all while remaining completing engaged, listening to what’s being said. Augment the important voice notes with images, text and tags to completely capture the key elements of a meeting or lecture. Cogi’s the next evolution in note taking, allowing you to record key ideas without writing the notes down.

Here’s what just a few users are saying about Cogi:

“So simple, so useful. This is an incredibly useful app. Its simple design is its strength. It’s like having your own audio time machine in which you can reach back in time and retrieve a valuable sound bite or idea from a meeting.”

“Play Store is clogged with apps that reinvents-the-wheel... The Cogi recording app on the other hand is one of those gems that offers something new to the table. For this I give Cogi 5+ well deserved stars.”

“Excellent! It is indeed better than notes!”

Cogi puts you in control, letting you capture those “aha moments” that you’ll want to remember. Rather than taking notes by writing them down, remain focused and count on Cogi to help you record the important things you hear.


Extend the value of Cogi’s app with a paid membership to effortlessly record those important moments on phone calls and conference calls. Highlight all or part of your phone calls in the same way that you record the important parts of your face-to-face conversations.
