A great piece of software. Very simple, very easy to learn and use, lots of clever add-ons like automatically emailing the recording you just made to any email address or uploading it to a website. Attractive design too. A great example of good software design.

Audio Hijack is $49, just $9 more. Audio Hijack has significantly more features, not the least of which is the ability to directly capture output from an app (iTunes, Safari, etc) so you can capture streams. RecordPad will not capture streams, per the FAQ on the developer's site.

Dreadfully buggy, although it ought to be operable under OS 10.6.7 Certainly overpriced by a factor of 8 — since it is extremely buggy.

Hello. Can you suggest freeware for making an mp3 or mp4 file from the internal mic? I have some audio cassettes I'd like to burn onto CD's. I thought I'd play them by the internal mike of my G5 (pre-intel) 10.4 OS.

Well, to the "You must be kidding, it's, like 40$" below: I make music. I use the Ableton Live 8 Suite, and other music software. Sure, it might seem as a stupid investment, as you say, there are free apps that does this, "kinda". You could use the new Quicktimeplayer in SnowLeopard to record both audio and video. Still, I think this little application gives me more. I often use it as a "scratchpad" when soloing in som guitar or just to record some lyrics. And, basically thats all this app really does, but it also lets you specify a higher bitrate, and record straight to raw .waw, and other formats, with ease. So, it is quick, works very well, and I would say it's worth $20. That's also what I paid, at a holiday sale...
