Recently, Jamie Pritchard expressed a need for a better explanation on how to transfer files from iTalk Recorder to iTunes.

iTalk Recorder is our popular voice recording app for iPod, iPhone and iPad. It’s a personal favorite of mine too.

Here’s how to get your files from iTalk to iTunes

  • With your device connected open iTunes
  • Select your iPod, iPhone or iPad under devices
  • Select Apps from the top of the iTunes Window
  • Scroll all the way to the bottom until you see File Sharing
  • Select iTalk under File Sharing
  • Your recordings will be on the right, you can drag and drop those files to your desktop or any other folder

That should help you Jamie.

If you have a question about our products please feel free to reach out. That’s why we’re here! Thanks.

Don’t have iTalk Recorder Premium? Grab it from the App Store.


You must use iTalk App 4.1 or later to see this feature. Be sure to update your app if you already have it installed.

    ok so there are nooo comments about uploading files to iTunes or dropbox?? in the above instructions it says to “scroll all the way to the bottom until you see File Sharing” …not on my iTunes window. anybody? i sync it with dropbox and nothing happens. i find no hint as to what to do next. i wish i hadn’t recorded so much precious stuff on here. it’s very heartbreaking. 
    and i find it offensive that i had to “share” info between my yahoo account and DisQus, whatever that is, just to comment on your forum. come on guys… has the whole world turned evil?

    That was very helpful, thank you!!

    And what to do if your iPhone doesn’t support 4.1? I had no problem saving files two weeks ago. Apparently a new update is getting in my way now. What to do?

    Hi I am trying send my large Italk file somehow. I don’t understand, I got the premimum.

  • bongo

    ok, maybe I am stupid, but: i can get them onto my hard drive, but how do I get them into my library? I can play them by selecting the file in my computer. They play on the itunes player, but I can’t see them in the itunes library. I want to put them on my ipod and study while I’m running, but I can’t figure out how to get them on there. Maybe this is obvious to everyone else but it’s driving me crazy.

    What you’ve described is what I’ve always done but with this new iTunes update, it doesn’t seem to have a “File Sharing” option anymore. I’ve got important recordings on iTalk that I need to get onto my computer – is iTunes no longer the program to do that?


      I have the same problem!

  • zoe

    there is so many itunes updates that unfortunately i cannot find any “file sharing” and i cannot download my recordings ..please advise

  • Elizabeth Walton

    i have the upgrade but when i switched to a new iphone the older version installed. i used this to record something really important and now can’t email it etc or get it off the device. i’m so deadly disappointed!!! i thought there used to be a desktop software that you could sync with the device and transfer by bluetooth?

  • sally
