Audio Note App

A few weeks ago someone mentioned an app called Audio Note in this group.  It is a great way for children to proofread, edit and revise their writing.  The children typed in their writing then recorded it and listened to it as much as needed before making the changes/improvements to their work.  They then did a final recording of their writing and were amazed at the improvements they had made.  They were also really excited to be able to share their work with their parents as I said I would email their work to my email then upload them to the school website.  I really wanted a purpose and authentic audience for their writing.  Unfortunately I can only get the text and not the audio once exported.  Has anyone used this successfully to export the writing AND the audio?  I'm stuck!!  Or, is there another app that is better suited?  Many thanks in advance!

    I have had a bit of a play with it in the past and went back to check - initial impression largely unchanged, nice and tidy but I feel other apps do more. You seem to need the paid version to email or send over wifi. So not sure if it links to Dropbox/WebDav. I think I would put my money towards Explain Everything  which allows multipage recording - children could write on page one - record it - listen, duplicate on page 2 (simple to do) and edit then re - record - real beforre and after captured. Then export to Camera roll, Dropbox, WebDav etc or even share as an editable file.
