Voice recording quietly comes to Touch 2G

What a difference a month makes. In September, we couldn't find a single voice-recording app for the iPhone that would work with the headset input included on the second-generation iPod Touch. I took a look around the iTunes App Store today and found that seven of of the 13-plus iPhone voice-memo apps now list themselves as compatible with the second-generation iPod Touch. Here's the list, so far:

If you find additional voice-memo apps for the iPod Touch 2G, please add them in this post's comments section.

On a side note, we're happy to report that you don't need to use an Apple-branded headset to enable the iPod Touch 2G's voice-memo capability (same goes for the new Nano and Classic). We used an Etymotic HF2 iPhone headset and recordings came out great.
