  • Better than the mic

    By acpatts
    Many folks in the department were having a lot of trouble with the hardwired mic because we all have to constantly switch computers. Using the app on my phone makes it WAY easier. It also means one less thing I have to carry around. If Apple Watch support was available it would be perfect. Also doesn’t significantly drain my battery with regular use over the course of my typical work day.
  • Quit moving the cursor around!

    By Les Beatles
    This app is constantly moving the cursor around when I take my notes on epic. I could be in the middle of speaking a sentence and for whatever reason it will go back in place the rest of my sentence in the first half of what I’m already dictating. I can’t tell you how often this announce my notes and makes me take at least twice as long to write them. Sometimes I type by hand because it just goes faster. Please fix this, it didn’t used to be a problem as of three months ago.
  • Getting worse with each upgrade

    By Wacker11111
    Log in is taking longer and longer with each upgrade. Recognition of medical terms has gotten worse. Still has not fix problem with cursor jumping everywhere.
  • Has potential but disappointing.

    By Gourmetdoc
    When the app works, the accuracy is wonderful. However, the apple freezes or disengages or have words transpose text. Updates need to be more frequent. Needs to be more seamless in its performance.
  • Apple Watch

    By KennyDub
    Any plans to make compatible with Apple Watch? Would be even better...
  • Great app

    By Nonoroks
    Please make it available on the Apple Watch.
  • Not working on Android Galaxy S8

    By CocernedMD
    Won’t sync with Android Galaxy S8, Services Request submitted with Nuance let’s see how long it takes them to respond.
  • Excellent alternative to USB mics for DMO

    By Ted Jerome
    The mic app does everything it's supposed to do--to emulate the handheld USB PowerMic II/III microphones for use (only, note well) in Dragon Medical One. Very easy to use, once you get past the required configuration URL link to tie it to your organization's DMO account.

    By Cap'n Jon
    This is intended to be used as a microphone with another product called Dragon Medical One. If you don't have that product, you can't log in. If you do have that product, this works great to let you dictate accurately from anywhere. I think the other reviewers think it works on its own.
  • Great

    By Zrtxcvytre
    I have been using this app for several days now. It's great. It integrates well with Cerner, and provides almost real time dictation with high accuracy.
