Very nice, but simple recorder

I find myself using this recorder for all sorts of tasks - talking text messages, fast notes, longer messages I don’t feel like writing, etc. I’m a disabled, senior citizen & there are many times I just don’t feel like pecking things out on this phone’s little keyboard, but this recorder is simple and straightforward to use. I’ve recommended it many times & will continue to do so. Thanks for a nice and useful app!

Good UI, pause/resume feature, recommended

I love that this app allows you to pause and resume recordings, which the voice app supplied by Apple did not let me do - and which was the very reason I looked for another app. Its other functions are pretty simple (e.g., I can’t find a way to duplicate or easily edit snippets - if there are these features available, I haven’t found them), but it does exactly what it promises to and I definitely recommend it! When I need to edit a recording taken with this app, I import it to Apple’s voice memo app and go from there. However, this app is typically my starting point!

Developer Response ,

Hello zephyrhills,
thanks very much for your feedback. I actually think the duplicate snippet is a great feature I didn't think of yet, so I will definitely add it to my the planned features list. I was always planning for an editing function but unfortunately didn't find time yet. Hopefully this will change soon.
Take Care
