Great but more organization options missing
Overall great app. I do wish there were more options for organizing recordings other than just in folders by date. I would like to keep separate folders for personal and work with the ability to have nested folders for each or tags. For instance, saving a recording regarding Client A could be saved in work>client a>date or project. Or it could be saved in my Work folder and be tagged “client a” with additional tags as needed. Using tags you could also flag recordings that you need to follow up on with additional information or recordings that you need to share with others once the transcription is checked, etc. Organizing recordings by date may be helpful for some, but personally I don’t want to have my personal recordings intermingled with work related recordings.
Not going to mince words here-but I do not regret purchasing this app at all! I’m blind as a bat but I was able to figure this app out after I downloaded it a few days ago. It met my expectations. It’s really cool & thoughtful of the app developers to make sure that it’s fully supported by voiceover. Too bad not many developers Think about people like me who have a disability. It’s user-friendly and like I said well worth the price. Just have a few suggestions-In future updates maybe it would be possible to make categories for the recordings. Create folders within folders. Append to existing recordings even if some time has passed before you decide to add to the recording. Add more export options. Make more import options. Lastly, add more to the languages selection. I’m Filipino and sometimes I have to dictate or talk to someone or record a conversation in Filipino but it’s not supported. Otherwise it’s a great app and you guys did a good job. Kudos and a big thumbs up! Hope you’ll hear my suggestions out and consider them. Have a great day!😃😉
Great! Simple and works
It's great to finally have an excellent app that works transcribes accurately from voice recognition. No time limits with control over the recording with start, pause, stop so I don't feel rushed while I'm dictating and thinking. I've tried several similar apps over the years and had given up - because others have been inaccurate, too much a hassle to use, copy/paste only - no export, or time limits, auto off too quickly, etc.
Seriously useful features. This has no learning curve - except on the Watch to pause. It's powerful, simple, and well connected to other apps for export as both audio and transcribed/text file! Very much appreciate that you can pause and continue on the same recording/file - so you don't have to deal with the tedium of piecing fragments together.
Watch app! I have it on my Watch face. It starts recording as soon as it launches. It's even easier to use than the on the phone. It will save on the Watch to sync with the phone when it's near.
Request: iOS file deletion with a swipe, not 2 pop-up presses per file, and an option to 'delete all' - like the Watch app. Because with regular app use the files stack up quickly.
Thank you for a great app! And for maintaining it.
