“iTunes cannot sync voice memos … because the Voce Memos app is not installed … You must download the Voice Memos app …”
Got this error message in iTunes today. I haven’t used voice memos.app in a long time (I use iTalk.app) and didn’t notice Voice Memos.app was no longer on my iPhone.
So why am I only getting this now … and why did a search on this phrase only find some phishing/spam page? Why does searching on Voice Memo Apple find only a bunch of third party apps? Why isn’t Voice Memos.app on my iPhone?
- I don’t know why only now … maybe an iTunes update?
- I don’t know why Voice Memos.app didn’t get installed when I updated to iOS 11 — might be a bug there.
- It is on the app store, but Apple’s app search/discovery is an unholy mess. You have to search for “Voice Memos” exactly. Shame we can’t search iOS App Store from the #$#@% Mac any more
One good thing — I ran across Apple’s Music Memos.app — which I’d missed. It does sound useful.
