To develop Topline, we worked closely with emerging songwriters and producers from across London to understand their creative needs.
They all shared a big concern about losing original song ideas. We decided to solve this challenge and the result is Topline - the latest in a continuing series of innovations designed to bring the Abbey Road magic closer to music makers whenever and wherever they create.

Really good app with some bugs

This is a great app, but recently it only plays from one of the two iphone speakers. Could you please have a look into this? The iPhone standard voice recorder works fine.

Also, it doesn't support Jabra Bluetooth earphones so when I play a recording wearing them it just plays from the iPhone speaker instead and doesn't allow me to record from the Jabra mics...

Good but Bluetooth/Synch issues

Using on iPhone 7. I want to play back either through Apple Bluetooth earbuds or my wireless speaker but although it pairs and shows as connected only plays through iPhone speakers (other apps play correctly, only Topline fails)

No option to synch with iCloud in settings, only Google or Drop box. App says it has auto synch on but is not synching.

Other than that it is great for me to record ideas as they occur

Doesn’t work on iOS 15

Lost all of my previous recordings in the Top Line app so lucky I backed them up. It just keeps crashing all the time and I cannot open anything prior to IOS 15 update, same on the phone and iPad. Also the Google drive access for backup stopped working a while ago. Thy just do not update the app very often so it could remain broken for a while. It’s great if it worked, steer clear for a year or so and maybe they will have fixed it by then. Just needs a fix so it works with IOS 15.
