Stop changing things!

This was a great free app! Unfortunately, they changed it, so it records in a format my typist has to pay for yet more software to listen to. Then they charge you a license - sorry, I’m stopping using it!


Great product lacking only one feature

This app is fantastic overall. It is simple and effective. However, I use outlook as my email client on my iPhone, and I would like to email my dictations via outlook. However, unlike an application by a rival company, this application does not allow it. One can only send one’s dictations via Apple Mail.

If this is fixed, in my opinion, this product would be the best smart phone dictation application on the market.

Licensing confusing

Was a great app until the trial period is over and then they try to charge you... why should we pay a fee if our typist is only listening to an audio file? I’m not actually using you to transcribe my documents. Will be deleting the app.

Hope you go back to the original
