Unfortunately, this release does not support these functions, but we're working on it.
At this point handwriting is not linked to recordings, but all typed text and media objects, such as photographs, are automatically linked to recordings. During playback, you can tap these and hear what was said when they were added to the note.
Unfortunately this feature is not in this release, but we're working on it.

Can I use soundAMP to amplify music and phone calls?
Do Bluetooth headsets work with soundAMP?
Can I use other apps while soundAMP is running?
How can I turn off soundAMP R?
soundAMP is designed to amplify nearby sounds that are picked up by a microphone. soundAMP does not process sound from either the iPod music player or a phone call.
We do not recommend Bluetooth headsets, as the sound quality is usually low, and the latency is too high.
Yes, soundAMP R supports multitasking, and you can use other apps such as email, calendar, photo library, etc. while listening with soundAMP R. When an app with audio starts, such as iPod or a radio, soundAMP R will stop processing sound.
soundAMP Lite does not support multitasking.
Slide the multitasking button to "off".
