  • I know recording

    By Bobbo924
    I’ve worked with everything from cassette recorders to digital voice recorders to apps. I ran a recording studio for 40 years. This app is amazing! It not only records with a single touch but it will then transcribe more accurately than Siri and allow you to share either audio file or transcription. Brilliant! Are use it frequently to record ideas for poetry, just beginnings, just stream of consciousness. How amazing to watch it then transcribed into something I can work on re-write with easily. This would be a bargain at twice the price. I hope a future update will prevent the bottom of the transcribed screen from being hidden by the keyboard. I’ve made that suggestion and they responded that they will look into it. Meantime I am loving it, have it on both the iPhone and the Apple Watch and butt for that one thing I don’t see how we could be better. Wish I could say the same for Siri, who’s mistakes I have left here on edited. LOL!

    Good. Very Simple to use. Not expensive so far. Use on Apple Watch too.
  • Stops when timer goes off

    By LSquaredComedy
    Great app expect if I start the timer before speaking to know how long I have been speaking the recording stops when the timer goes off, not ideal since I set the timer a littler earlier then I need to stop so I can finish the thought I am on.
  • Perfect.

  • Great app

    By reptilia1251
    Easy to use, very discreet, opinion to save recording in your iCloud account and you can record from your Apple Watch. What more could you ask for?
  • Great and useful

    By LBIP
    This is a great app especially when using with an Apple watch. In a meeting press the record button on your phone and the meeting is recorded sent to your phone and transcribed. I gave it a 4* only because it keeps launching by accident on my watch. I would like to see an option to confirm start recording and possible haptic feedback to remind you there is a recording going on. Should be optional because not all will agree with me. One other feature i like you can begin recording from your watch then return to your selected watch face with no indication you are recording.
  • Love This App

    By RobTrevor
    This is my favorite all around app for many reasons. I’ve used it for several months and it has been very useful for reasons I never would have thought of before.
  • Great app, ugly complication

    By jjk454ss
    App works great. Please give us a better looking Apple Watch complication.
  • User experience 👎🏼

    By khashabri
    Not handy at all to share, forward or delete MULTIPLE audios !
  • Almost love it!

    By Cspain11
    I want to love this app but I have just a couple issues. Some of my recordings I can’t change the name, no matter how hard I press on the default name they give the recording. And Speaking of how they name the waves, it’s confusing, they should at least use the current date and time I do not understand their numerical system. Also recording from the watch is cool, but that too, you got to hit the record button a lot sometimes, just to get it to record. And sometimes it takes a while for the recordings to go from the watch to the app. Transcription isn’t the best, it only transcribes the first part of the recording even with the setting set to record all... I wish they would let you tag the waves, that would be cool.
