Hokusai Audio Editor

Principal function(s): Audio recording

Hokusai is an app for iOS devices that allows editing audio tracks. One can use an already existing track or record one. There is a wide array of editing options available, such as filters and special effects. One can also work on several tracks simultaneously and even mix them. The final version can then be exported, saved, and shared. Evaluation: Hokusai is a simple editing software for tablets and smartphones. Just about any operation can be performed very easily with a click or a touch. In addition, thanks to the various available effects and filters, Hokusai allows for the production of very professional-sounding recordings.

Cost: Free + paid options

Respect for privacy Does the tool require registration? Who can see my data? Can I remain anonymous?

High. Hokusai Audio Editor, as stated by its developers from Wooji Juice, tries to gather as little private information as possible about its customers. It clarifies that if someone installs and uses their apps without contacting them, they likely have no information about them at all. They explicitly mention that they do not collect data on your usage of their apps and that none of their apps store information on the cloud in a way that they have access to. They do not use analytics software to track users as they browse the internet, which enhances transparency. The policy respects user consent, especially when it comes to sending technical information or logs. Users have control over what information they send, and nothing is gathered automatically without their explicit action. Wooji Juice does not mention compliance with the GDPR, and the last policy update is from 2018. See more here.

Saving work for future use Possiblity to save your or others´ work for reuse/reproduction
