Voice memos allows iPhone users to record and share voice messages.

The iPhone features a Voice Memos application that allows you to record, edit and share voice messages with others via email or text message. These messages can be shared with individuals with any type of cell phone service, as long as the individual has access to multimedia text messaging. The voice recording can be as long or as short as desired, but only one minute of the message can be forwarded.
