Is there a preferred app folk use to record yourself playing on iPhone orwill the voice memo suffice ?

It’s all I’ve found that will work but it really gets through memory, GregB.

Like a lot of Apple stuff, I find GarageBand to be so awful that it’s unusable, personally. I tried downloading something called “Recorder”, but it was so full of bugs and problems that it was about as useless. I’m deeply frustrated not being able to find a way of recording beyond using voice memo.

Sorry that’s not much help. I’m not what you might call an IT expert!

I'm definitely not an IT expert either. I've just been using the video function of my iPhone camera to record videos. The sound quality and volume isn't the best for recording acoustic guitar as I'm ~ 8' away to fit me and my guitar in the video frame. The volume is better when I record my electric guitar, because then I can place the amp closer to the phone.

I haven't personally done this, but I ran across an article about using an iPhone as a USB microphone a while back.

Found it:

I believe the aim with this approach is to use the iPhone purely as a microphone hooked up to your Mac, so you record into whatever DAW or software you want that is running on the Mac (e.g. Logic, GarageBand, Audacity, et cetera). Not sure if that will fit your use case or not.
