I can’t even explain how awesome BossJock is for recording, editing and exporting podcast files. I paid $10 for it. It was the most expensive app I’ve ever bought and truth be told after having used it and seeing just how incredibly useful it is I would pay five times that amount if I had to replace it because it’s that good. It is for Apple iOS devices.
Right now it’s on sale for half off in the iTunes store. That’s $4.99 and that my friends is a steal if you are doing any type of podcasting.

Shown Left to Right- The Samson GoMic, Lightning to USB connector for connecting Mic to iPad, and cheapo earbuds which plug into the GoMic.
Here’s a shot of everything connected and ready for recording using the BossJock app on the iPad. Note that I have the GoMic sitting on the table but that black stand actually doubles as a clamp which I clamp to the top of the iPad case. I placed it on the table for this shot so I could get everything in the shot close together but normally it would be clamped to the top left corner of the iPad Case. This can all be set up in less than 30 seconds.
This shot is to illustrate how small and compact the set-up is. I placed a quarter below the GoMic for scale.
Samson GoMic available on Amazon for only $39.99. You can use it with any laptop or computer with a usb port. I’ve used it to tape podcasts with my laptop before but the ease of using it owith the iPad along with the BossJock app is so ridiculously easy I can’t even begin to tell you. It’s plug and play. The iPad immediately recognizes the mic, you hit the record button and you are off to the races. When finished you stop recording, hit finish and then select how you would like to export it for use.
The GoMic is also good for use in conferencing, Skype and other uses like that.
