This application offers a simple solution to record audio on your computer. With a straightforward approach and no complex menus, SimpleRecoder has been designed for home users who want to save audio reviews and streaming music playing on their computer.

The program installs as a small icon both on your Mac's menu bar and in the Dock, so that you can access it with ease whenever you need to capture any sound coming into your computer. Using the utility is extremely easy. You just need to open the app and enable the recording. While the recording is in progress, you can view the elapsed time in real time, as the program displays a stopwatch next to the tool's icon. Pausing or stopping the recording can be done at any moment from the tool's context menu. Once you stopped the recording task, a small window pops up, letting you save the audio file at a computer location you browse for. Your project is saved with the .m4a extension, as M4A is the only format supported by the application.

To sum up, SimpleRecoder is a basic audio recorder that helps you save any sound playing on your computer. The ease of use seems to be the program's major asset. Its simplicity makes it suitable for users looking for a plain application, manageable without hassle.
