Not only is Sleep Talk Recorder practical, it’s also a lot of fun. All you have to do is place your iDevice less than three feet away from your bed with the microphone facing you. You’ll probably also want to plug it in so it doesn’t stop running in the middle of the night. Then press the big green bed button and fall fast asleep. The app utilizes an advanced filtering algorithm to identify sounds and immediately start recording, so you won’t just have one huge file that you have to listen to. You’re able to review your recordings, mark them as favorites, and even share your funniest moments with the Sleep Talk Recorder community.
Sleep Talk Recorder is available for free today only (10/14). It has a 4-star rating with a total of 29 ratings.
Ease of use is important when it comes to camera apps, and MiniatureCam passes the test with flying colors. The app features two types of blur effects that allow you to simulate a shallow depth of field and make your subject appear miniature. You’re able to change the focal point of both effects by sliding them around the viewfinder. The blur intensity, contrast, brightness, and saturation can also be adjusted via a slider. The best part is, the miniature effect can be used in both camera and video recording modes.

Quotes can then quickly be recalled, shared, or stored within Evernote or Dropbox. The app also allows you to create a wish list.
