Works as advertised

I like the simplicity. Helpful improvements would be allowing for making the text larger and inserting line breaks when there's a pause in the conversation to make it easier to follow.

Thanks for the feedback! There is a way to make the text size bigger or smaller. Here's the link to the YouTube video we have describing how to do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BXSb40Kmtc

Thank goodness for Brandon!

I lost all (yes, I mean all) of my hearing ten years ago and went through so much depression, agoraphobia, anger, frustration, and just plain embarrassment over the whole ordeal. Losing your hearing is a traumatic event and my friends pulled away from me as much as I did from them. It felt like I died, it felt like I didn’t count anymore, I am now discriminated against right to my face, it is a real tragedy that I hope not many others begin at age 36 like I did.

This device, however, has the power to change this. This is not Dragon Dictation or any other dictation app you have tried and fought with them eventually gave up on. I tried it simply because I figured a man who built this for his father did it for real and with all his heart and wanted to change his father’s life.

Well, he has in just three days changed mine also. I used it all day each day so far and I am so happy that I can so easily communicate with my relatives and friends that I I have now. This device is real-time, not deaf-time. There’s no delay and it simply listens all the time. My mom was so very pleased when we ate lunch today and had the fullest conversation we have had since I went left in 2008.

This is a real game changer and with a man like Brandon behind it doing it all for his dad, it can only get better!

So worth it. Wish it had existed sooner! I thank anyone who helped create this wonderful app!

Sincerely yours,

Sharyn Thoma Guay

Feels like a prototype - Better Apps Out There

I like the full screen aspect of this app. However, it feels like a prototype, no instructions, no font type options, font size is limited, and the current solution to clearing the screen is ridiculous. Instructions for punctation in sentences, skipping lines (hint: new paragraph), and improving accuracy would help. As a "Dragon Natuarally Speaking" software on the PC before the iPhone and Siri, I found that some of the "Dragon Speech Recognition" commands work in this app (just like a lot of other siri based apps). Overall, App MyEar feels underdeveloped and clunky. Expected much more for $9.99. It is better than nothing if it opens the lines of communication with the hard of hearing. However, better options are out there, like the "Make It Big" app which is more developed (lacks full text screen) and is free.

Thanks for the feedback! There are tips-and-tricks in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document that will address some of the issues you mentioned in your review. Feel free to check it out: http://bit.ly/2Clff1L. "Make it Big" is a great app for 1-2 sentences, but if you're planning to have 1x1 conversations longer than 1-2 sentences, App MyEar would be the better option. Every app has it's own use cases :)
