Split screen is missing

This app is almost perfect. It's only missing the split screen option so that I could start a recording while reading my texts. (I do voiceovers)

Broken for iPhone X

The mic and app were working great - until I upgraded to iPhone X. The mic doesn’t work 90% if the time, and when it does work, the audio drops intermittently and is choppy. Haven’t been able to use this mic for 3 months because of this and reported the issue way back then. Still no fix. Hoping Shure fixes this... as of now the mic and app are useless.

Developer Response ,

This is a known issue that appeared with the release of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. iOS update release 11.3, once released, is expected to resolve these issues.

Works perfectly

Brilliant app that works as advertised. I’ve been using it for the last 4 months with the Rode RD-SC6-L adapter to record in stereo and so far it has delivered without a glitch on my iPhone Xs. Super stable, easy to use with just enough features.

Recording under Heavy Sound Pressure is doable with the mic gain set to minimum. Though I would love and option to lower the minimum mic gain setting by an extra -6db for those very High Sound Pressure situations where sound reaches 120 to 130db.

I definitely recommend this app.
