    Does anyone know how to convert iphone voice memos to MP3s? My wife has some lectures that she records using the voice memo app and she wants to share them with some of her friends. Has anyone tried this before?

    If you go to the memos you can share them via email. They are in m4a format, but you can then use any of the audio converters out there to make them mp3s.

    The voice memos are very large, 26 MB and up, and when she tries to send them she gets an error say the file is to big. I was hoping that when it is converted to mp3 that the file size would shrink. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    When you plug your iPhone into iTunes, go to the Music tab and make sure that there is a check mark next to “Include voice memos”. This will automatically sync your voice memos into their own playlist in iTunes where you can then do whatever you’d like with them.

    Thanks, but that is already set up and under it's own playlist called voice memos. What I am trying to do is convert is from m4a to mp3. I thought that itunes would do that but I cannot find the option anywhere in the pulldown menus at the top.

    Just found this for you. It is free right now and you can send MP3 from within the app.

    Doesn't look like you can convert your current voice memos

    In iTunes just right-click on the voice memo and choose "Create mp3 version." You may need to make sure your Import Settings are set to mp3 if you don't see that option.

    (Assuming op hasn't solved this in the past two years!)

    I have another solution that may work for you.
    When i record my voicenotes i do this with the fomito-App.
    The App is free - you get a link back with your audio in mp3 and even ogg format.
    Audio recording is limited to 2 minutes.
