How to convert .audionote or .caf to .mp3

One of the applications that has proven to be useful to me is the Audionote app. I'm very happy of this purchase. I use it when I attend conferences or meetings. When I attend meetings, I just leave it recording. It allows me to freely listen without worrying of missing any information. It frees me from writing while listening. It also frees me from overthinking too much. What I like about it most is the fact that I can upload my notes to Dropbox or my iCloud Drive. That way, I am not limited with my iPad device's memory.

The limitation, however, is the fact that I can only play my recordings on the Audionote app. Well, so I thought. Good thing, I just recently discovered a way to workaround it on my Mac OS X.

1. Make a copy of your .audionote file. Right click on your .audionote file and click Duplicate. This will ensure that the original .audionote file will not be altered.

2. Change the filename extension of the newly created file (the duplicate) to .zip. Original file extension should be .audionote copy.

3. Double click on the .zip file to decompress it. A folder xxx (where xxx is your filename) should be created.

4. Go to the xxx folder. You will see a file with .caf extension. This .caf file is what you will convert to .mp3.

5. Go to and convert the file to mp3.
