BB Dictaphone is a nice app to have on your Windows 8 machine if you are looking for an app that allows you to record sounds with ease. My complaint with this app is that it does not have an option where I can select the recording quality or the extension in which I want to save my recording to. Apart from that, this is one excellent app to create amazing sound recordings on your Windows 8 device.
