Great App for Auditions

I use this app regularly for taping my kids auditions along with the Shure mic made for the iPhone. I like being able to control so many factors from speed to mic direction. All very easily found and adjusted.

The most recent update added a Gallery function and I’d like to request 3 options for the next release.

-Can you add a multi selection option for exporting videos from the gallery?
-Can you add a simple thumb slide for deleting media in the gallery?
-Most IMPORTANT please add an option in gallery to automatically save videos in your photo rolls as the app used to do. Like the addition of the gallery but the additional steps to upload to my photos library takes quite some time, especially with multiple videos.

lost my work too... unreliable

I wish I’d read more reviews on this because I had the same issue of a recording not saving onto my camera roll (some sort of recording error) and I ended up losing some important work. I could still replay it in the app temporarily but the exporting didn’t work and after I did another test recording, I think my phone overwrote the file with the new recording and there was no existing menu option or anything where I could access/export the previous lost recording (i tried to email it to myself after a pop up came up but the email itself was empty with no attachments. It’s just gone).

Beware guys! Just in case I would enable “iOS screen recording” from your control center so worst case scenario if you can play the video, you can brute-force record it on your screen at least and save yourself the hassle with some sort of workaround.

other than that I want to suggest adding a “pause recording” button or “save draft” or something since these are constrained by phone battery life too. I can barely get over an hour’s footage on mine before needing to recharge

File Transfer Issue

Whenever I record a longer video the app won’t transfer it to my photo library on my phone. I know there are trouble shooting options involving connecting to a computer, but i think its pretty lame that that’s the only solution. I feel like that could be addressed better by developers. Also the suggested work arounds, so far, have not worked for me so I'm stuck with video that is only viewable in the Motiv app.
All that being said, I do appreciate the quality of recordings and the intuitive/extensive settings options that the app offers, and i love the mv88+ for what it is (do wish it was capable of live streaming without interference noise from cell data but i get that’s not the intended application for this device).
I hope developers can resolve this one caveat because none of the recording quality or app intuitiveness matters if I can’t use the videos I take outside the motiv video app conveniently. If I wanted to plug something into my computer to transfer files, I would have opted for a standalone handheld recording device.
