Can't use on phones me calls

We were like looking at this to replace our hand held recorders at work for interviews and it can't be used on live calls

New version greedy cash grab

This app was always convenient and easy to use. I transcribe and email to my secretary, for whom I paid for expensive Olympus transcription software to transcribe. Now, with no notice, Olympus changed their business model to make the process less efficient, by taking my dictation, uploading to their server, then charging me an additional fee to send the dictation to my secretary. Plus, although a 60 day trial period is given - the emails that showed up to my secretary are nothing but static. Pathetic and definitely not recommended. Charge a one-time fee for the app or something, not the privilege of being able to email a file from my phone to my secretary.

Lost many important recordings

I have used Olympus for dictation with good results for many years,
but recently my phone based Olympic app, which we paid for, lost
several very important and long dictations what are taking me many
hours to recreate, because I have to go back and review documents
and find mark ups. I would definitely recommend not using this
product without understanding this risk.

The company informs me that the phone no longer has the recording
when it is sent, and that if the e-mail sent does not make it to the e-mail
address the recording is gone. So your recordings are only as secure
as the internet system and internet, so good luck.

I recommend using a system where the phone retains the data until
you voluntarily delete it.

I am very disappointing in this apparent flaw, and wish anyone trying
this system the best.
