Great app - even greater tech support

I depend on this app to record important meetings. Just have to be careful to make sure it keeps recording. There are times I hit Record on my iPhone and assume it's recording for an hour or two conversation. Then I come back to save and email the recording and find it somehow stopped after a few seconds and my whole conversation was missed. I don't know what happened. Somehow, something was pressed which paused or ended the recording. But I like how I can set it to record in 15-minute chunks automatically so none of the recorded files is to large to email. Each one is under 8MB or so. Very fast, competent, and polite support if I report a problem.

i’m a very critical user who has tried many different audio programs and some are poor and some ate very good, but this one with its many features is outstanding. I really find it useful that you can easily append to the beginning of a recording, at the end of recording or even insert audio in the middle of a recording. Appending at the beginning is an excellent way to add to the beginning of recording when you get an idea later on and say well I should’ve added this first because it’s very important. This app can do that with no problem at all. It also has many other features some of which are distinctive to this app alone. I have been using it for years.

Pretty Darn Perfect!!!

After discarding several recording apps for my Apple Watch I’ve settled on this one. All I wanted was something I could use relatively hands free to record a reminder or some random thought whilst driving or out walking. It’s recognized as a Complication and Siri brings it up easily. All I have to do is touch the big “record” button and bam! It is well worth the buck it costs and there are a bunch of extensions available if you need extras like attaching a recording to a photo etc. I don’t need any so haven’t purchased but good to have the options. I haven’t found a way for the mic icon to show on my watch face yet but Siri can find it for me. :)
