Stopped Recording?

It worked wonderfully until one day it just decided to stop recording completely. I would hit the record button, it would load, and then a file would pop up with 0 seconds recorded. I deleted some files thinking it was just overcrowded, but it did nothing to help the issue. Other than that it works amazingly for lectures and such.

Perfect app, all in one!

I'm looking for a voice recorder app so my close friend introduced it to me. Firstly, i think this is one of the best audio recorder app on Mac Appstore, it brings me many convenient features that help me a lot in work. My favorite feature is i can add a detailed description with photos to each recording, it's so awesome. Then i can export to MP# or AAC and share to other people. Thanks for creating, i hope the developer will update more functions in the next version.

Decent free version but not clear on important limitation

Looking for a more convenient alternative to Voice Memos where I can get to the audio file quickly without the run around in the Apple app.

It's not clear if only the Free version is limited in only using the Built-In Microphone. I synced a bluetooth headset but it seems to not use it. And I don't want to pay for the upgrade unless I know that this app has ability to use the other input in the full version. Should be clearly stated that other inputs are stunted unless upgrade fee is paid...

Developer Response ,

We have answered your request by email. I’ll duplicate part of the answer here: The application supports all devices that are displayed on the Mac in input devices.
