  • Transcription not great

    By Diosa El
    I don’t know if it’s because it’s a recording that I recorded with the app for transcription, but the app transcribed the recording totally inaccurate. And the recording was very clear with no background noise. I then tested it by recording my own voice and it transcribed perfectly. I was hoping to be able to use it to assist me in transcribing important phone calls for work purposes, but I have not had much luck.
  • Powerbeats Fail

    By Timealone
    I want to like this app but I haven’t been able to work it into my production work flow. Perhaps I will when I can pause the recording with my wireless Powerbeats. I walk around while talking and choose to dock my phone but w/o being able to start & stop the recording remotely I’m still looking. I’m probably overlooking something, or perhaps it’s iPhone X? Cheers
  • Unbelievably Easy, Essential for Apple Watch

    By zmhoward
    Adding an instant record button to a watch face is the sleekest integration of any app complication out there. It's so fast and so good and instantly saves to iCloud so you can access on all devices. I can't say enough about how awesome it is to have this. One of those things you don't know you need but once you have it you can't live without it.
  • First use did not go well

    By DRW65
    I tried to record a meeting today. The app stopped after 25 minutes, and could not transcribe to text. It either hung during transcription or failed with an error. It seemed to work for short recordings of a few seconds, but I didn’t try to find how much longer the transcription feature could handle.
  • No Complication?

    By Jam888888
    Recorder works fine but no way to add complication to watch face and that's the reason I paid for the app! Wack
  • Great app

    By Said AlRiyami
    I like the app. And I would like to see support to other cloud provider like google drive
  • Wasn't what I needed

    By Sucker534
    I purchased this hoping it would help transcribe some of my meetings. The challenges are that it mixes coversations when multiple people are talking and the transcribe function takes a very long time. Several times I left the app open in the backgroud but accidentially swiped the app close, out of habit of always closing open apps to preserve battery life. Once closed, I had to begin the transcription over again. It did capture some of the previous transcripition, but it always failed to pick up where it left off or even start fresh. I then had to erase the partial transcription and start over. I liked that I could copy the text and paste into an email or note.
  • Great

    By MrQuickster
    Thanks for making a great app! The features continue to improve over time. (And thanks for focusing on making a great app rather than nagging for positive ratings on a mediocre app.)
  • No automation possible

    It’s an island...can connect it to anything else
  • Great App: But...

    By MBF1991007
    Love this app but it’s times when you need to trim recordings which is a must, this app doesn’t offer that feature. But overall this is a great app that I still would recommend.
