Faster than notes or messages

I wanted an app to translate spoken word to text so I could record things I thought about while driving. Note pads were a distraction while driving and having to negotiate the message or note apps on my iPhone was also more distracting. This app gave me easy to access and precise control for instantly recording my thoughts. Even with heavy traffic noise.

Good at it's core, rough on the edges

The speech recognition in this application is good. For me, it seems to be some of the best I've used. I particularly like that it will process large blocks of speech, rather than halting in the middle when I pause to gather my thoughts.

But, saving text is precarious. I've accidentally deleted long passages by closing the application or just the document. I must be very diligent about saving blocks of text promptly. It's like the olden days of hitting CMD-S every few sentences when writing in Word so that a crash wouldn't wipe out much work. And, "yes, I walked five miles to school uphill both ways... in the snow. So you kids better stay off my lawn!" Yeah, the aspects of this application for saving text do make me feel like the grumpy old man I've become. And, even though this application is updated frequently, this significant downside has not been addressed.

The core speech recognition function is great.

Best voice to text app available that I have found it and I have gone through pretty much all of them. This actually picks up everything clearly and dictates it correctly.

This app unlike others rarely if it all messes up words or phrases unlike others where I have to constantly go back and correct them which defeats the purpose of voice to text (and it's frustrating to fix half of everything that you’ve dictated).

It's nice to that it works with commands for dictating text that That are for dictating text on Mac but also work for iOS. Some of the commands I'm still figuring out and they might be because of enhanced dictation but overall they work. With iPhone 8 I don't have an option for enhanced dictation but on X there might be an option for enhanced dictation.

Don't waste your money on any of the other dictation apps. They're completely useless and will frustrate you to no end. I have wasted way more money than I would care to admit on those and this has been best app that I have found and I always come back to it.
