Being able to make note of phone numbers, addresses, medication directions, etc. is quite important.

The iPhone has an easy app that will allow you to record messages, and they are automatically stored on the device.

The app is called Voice Memo.

The first time you tell Siri to launch Voice Memo, there may be some details on the app that Apple will place on the screen.

You can swipe with one finger to find the Next, Continue, or OK button.

When the desired button is found, double tap with one finger to activate it.

The main screen of the Voice Memo app has a few options.

The Record button takes up the bottom third of the screen. Double tap this button with one finger to start the recording and again to stop it.

You should note that pressing the Lock button will not stop the recording and that recordings do take up space on your device.

The first recording will have the designation New Recording 11, and there will be options on the screen to play, rewind, delete, etc.

The Record button will remain at the bottom of the screen so that you will always have the option of recording another voice note.

You also have the ability to give each recording a name. To do this, find New Recording 11 and flick up with one finger. The first option is to edit the name. Double tap with one finger, and then type in a name.

Please also note that there is no pause option for recording a voice memo, but there is one for playing them.
