Suggested changes

I use both Power Mic III and mobile version because I work in many different locations.

Things which could be improved in mobile version:

Left and right arrow buttons are too close to bottom of screen in iPhone X version and white slide bar is over them. Too frequently when trying to toggle between fields, I accidentally slide the white bar which disconnects me and then I have to reconnect in order to continue dictating. There is lots of empty white space around the dictate button: could the arrows be moved up and away from the white bar or made larger?

Disconnects too easily and too frequently in the middle of dictating. Why?

I use toggle to go to the next field and start dictating and it goes instead to text box. Why?

The app disconnects very frequently. My iPhone is tied to the Epic EMR and obviously I cannot change the settings on the phone to prevent it from locking after a few minutes (this is security related hospital driven setting) and as soon as the iPhone locks the power mic also disconnects. To go back in you again need to open the app tab and then again login and then again click the microphone on to dictate. Extremely annoying. Also if you switch between the power mic app and some other app, you have to redo the whole connection again. Makes the whole process of dictating very inefficient. Should have an always on top function which does not disconnect and with a simple voice command like “turn power mic on” or “off” to start and stop dictating. I was initially very enthusiastic about using it but it’s just clunky the way it is.

Use to Work Now does not

I used this for at least a year with very few issues and very little trouble shooting. The latest update that changed the entire look (which looks better) has caused it to be very glitchy. It now disconnects on its own frequently while using it right in the middle of a recording. Much more unstable. Now when you move the curser from one part of a note to another, or if you pause for a few seconds in your dictating, you have to hit stop recording and then start recording or it will not record, regardless of whether the button is still green (indicating it is still recording) or not.
