Thanks for the suggestions.
Some ideas I have had for devices are, Zoom portable recorder (or similar), ipod and or cell phone (HTC One M8, Andriod), Korg TM-50 (without recorder and use with some other recording device) or TMR-50 (has recorder).
Do you have any problems with the quality of the mic, distortion, speakers etc on your phone?
I have read many times it is a good idea to record one's self while learning and practicing the harmonica.
What equipment, software etc do you use?
What software do you use and recommend?
I am using Bendometer, not for recording but for learning bends.
I am aware of HarpNinja and currently looking into it.
What type of tuners do people recommend and what features would you recommend to be on it?
If I wanted to practice staying in time, would you recommend a metronome?
I have noticed there are the traditional pyramid ones with the needle on the front that sways side to side and electronic ones, and also electronic ones with tuners built in.
Which type would you recommend?

Yes, that post is mine, thought I better introduce myself
I'm in Tamworth, NSW.
I started learning the harmonica about 16 years ago, for some reason I stopped. At the time I could play some simple songs and the major scale.
Just recently I have been looking at it again and thought I should give it another go. So I have acquired a couple of books, dug out my instruction book I bought 16 years ago, looking at websites on the topic again.
Bending has always intrigued me, never tried it years ago. Read up on it the last week or so and started trying to bend on Friday. I also have to get back into those simple tunes and exercises.
Thanks for the replies.
Well I have been trying to bend notes with good results so far since Friday afternoon. Not real good or consistent but getting there. Can bend straight off, but when it comes to alternating between the note and the bend I'm having trouble, will keep working on it.
