    I've done a search of the forums and the market but I would like some recommendations for a dictation app that I can use on my motorola milestone. I need to record up to 2 hours at a time or is this asking to much for a recorder?

    I am also wondering how much memory space I need for 7 hours (full day).

    Thanks

    I'm not sure how much space you would need for a 7 hrs day. Have you tried "Tape-a-Talk" It can record while the screen is locked. (I haven't used it yet.) Let me know how it works. It might be a good idea to by a seperate 2 or 4 Micro SD card just for this purpose.

    I use AndRecorder cuz it’s easy to start in a hurry but have no idea how long a recording it or your HD can create.

    Thanks both of you. I've installed both apps to see which is better. My sd card is 5GB but will likely have my laptop to down load during lunch.

    itsallgood, Will report back.
