Ratings and Reviews
Great little app, used it for years to record ideas/blueprints for songs. Took a break from it and went back, app crashed whenever opened. All my work was lost. Downloaded it again but think I may look elsewhere, not going to risk losing stuff again. Three stars for years of loving it. But yeah, might be in your interest to look elsewhere.
Always has been helpful
Whether coming up with templates or ideas or uploading tracks to practice over, this app has been a true savor. Maybe I’ve been lucky with not getting the problems other people have had since getting the app 5 years ago. Best results I’ve noticed is to go with a normal headphone without the mic in headphone so there’s not as much background noise. Great app though.
It’s been 3 years since this was updated. I’m going to look elsewhere. I’m sure there are newer recorders out there now. It’s sad, this was such a good app!
