Voice2Email is an incredible tool that will save you countless hours of typing your email-replies. It lives in the menubar. Just hit the record button, pause recording while thinking of the next thing to say, replay if you wish before you send, or just hit the share button. Your e-mail software will open a new email with a regular MP3 file attached which can be opened and played by anyone in the world. Most email-applications even allow playing of the file inline in the e-mail itself. That is so cool! Your friends and colleagues will get to listen to your voice instead of reading long texts.

You might think that your attachment will get too big. The good news is that the filesize and quality are completely adjustable in the settings. Let's assume you talk 10 minutes. The smallest filesize you get is 0.5 MB with maximum compression with fair quality. If you wish, all recordings can be saved to a folder of your choice for archival purposes. The new quick-send feature allows you to send your voice messages directly to as many as 6 preset friends in order to speed up frequent communication. The free version of this app is limited to one minute recording time.
