  • Great app but...

    By Jon Kelling
    Great app, but there is one thing that I was confused about after the last update. All recordings went up a second, and my latest one came out to 2:60. This isn’t a problem, but it was just something I was confused about.

    Works. Plenty of granular quality options. Plenty of options in general. Easy to use FAQ and support. Developers appear to be closely monitoring customer satisfaction and eager to support. Transcription is good if you let it.
  • Low quality recordings

    Free apps Voice Recorder and Voice Record 7 provide much better recordings in a test of voices about 10 feet away from my Apple Watch. The recordings with this app were barely understandable while the others were easy to understand. Waste of $5.

    First off, I love this app and it’s quick start features. I don’t completely regret the purchase. But for 5$ I kinda wish for more. Perhaps level readings/control and the ability to rename the recordings quicker. It seems I have to tap the file after, then tap the generic name it’s given to edit. Not very intuitive. The stock voice memo app asks right away for a name, which I find annoying and obtrusive. Just looking for something in between that is easy and quick. Otherwise, I like that it puts them in a folder by day and automatically uploads them to iCloud for access on other devices.
  • Can’t use as complication on watch

    This would be a great app if you could use it as a complication on the watch so that all you have to do is tap it to record note. Unfortunately, it can’t be used as an application on the watch because it is far too sensitive. Last night I accidentally recorded three hours of my sleeping, which caused my watch to lose charge.
  • Simple, intuitive, useful

    I purchase this app for it's Apple Watch extension, and it has not disappointed. Being able to near-instantly and inconspicuously record any conversation I find myself a part of has been more handy than I realized!
  • Excelent

    The Apple Watch app allows you to record anywhere. The flexibility is impressive. The program works as expected. The UI is very well designed.
  • Works great!

    Change the App name to something shorter so it fits under the icon. Couldn’t get the watch app to install, but a reset of the phone fixed that. Audio playback on the Apple Watch isn’t very loud, but it’s crystal clear and loud when playing back on the iPhone X. Initial impressions are very good. App seems solid and transcriptions seem really fast although not always accurate. Still giving it 5 stars even though the volume could be a lot louder during the watch playback, and the name is to long for the icon.
  • Easy and Convenient

    Anytime someone can invent an app that incorporates pushing a single button to use in its structure count me in👍
  • Great app but hard to rename files

    By ebeck1352
    I really love this app. I use it daily and it does what I need it to. My biggest complaint is that it is very hard for me to click precisely on the file name to rename a recording. I usually have to try several times which is very annoying. I have small fingers and have not had this problem with other apps. The transcriptions are not the best either but they do help to make the recordings searchable by keywords. I also know not to expect miracles from transcriptions (yet) but the renaming thing I feel should be fixed.
