How can I add a name or title to the voice memos that sync from my iPhone to iTunes on my Mac? All I get in the playlist is the date and duration of the memo - right click, left click, nothing works.

You can rename your voice recording using the "Get Info" window, which you can invoke by:

  • Choosing File > Get Info
  • Or, right-clicking and choosing "Get Info"
  • Or, pressing ⌘ I

From there, click on the "Info" tab, and you can enter something else in the "Name" field:

The same procedure works on all other files in iTunes as well, like music and movies.
