Developers are shameless

I would give 0 stars if I could. I have written angry e-mails to Rode multiple times about the disgusting app they offer, but they don't care. Why would a support person care about anything their employer is doing? They just want to make money and go home.

So do I, by the way, but thats extremely difficult when you record audio and can't actually extract the files. You can't share files through any traditional manner. No messages, no Airdrop. If you want to e-mail a file, you'd better hope its a short file. (< 1 minute) Want to use File Sharing? Then you need to use this archaic web interface that hasn't been updated since 2008 (like the app itself)

By the way, none of these problems will be fixed in the pro version. They offer more broken ways to share files, and more broken features for you to become upset with. It is my genuine belief that some executive let his 15 y/o nephew program the app for free.

I have a 7 minute sound file paramount to my continued employment trapped inside the Rode Rec app. Too large to e-mail, and the soundcloud / file sharing features don't work. I've e-mailed Rode, I've messaged them on Twitter, and have heard nothing back, because of course I haven't. There is nothing I could do, except not have recorded the file in such an embarrassingly terrible piece of software. RIP, I guess.

Don't make the mistake I made. Do business with Rode's competitors like Samson or Yeti.

Please do yourself a favor and don’t download this. This app was clearly made by people who don’t care about anything, especially ease of use, efficiency, or safety. If you use this for anything remotely professional, you’ll probably get screwed over big time. This app will decide to delete random tracks, export tracks as blank txt files that are 0kb, stop recording randomly, or simply freeze mid use. On the off chance it actually successfully records something, good luck getting it off your phone. No tracks will be saved to your phone, so you can manually extract; you’re at the mercy of this god awful company and their terrible servers. I honestly have never felt so strongly about a bad company as I have for this one. How terrible their app is has made me sell my two rode mics and exclusively buy from their competitors.
This app will only give you nightmares and make you constantly question your poor, poor choices, if you download it.

App forgotten by Rode

All the comments are correct… the app is almost useless plus it hasn’t been updated in 8 years. I thought Apple was going to start removing apps that haven’t been updated in the last few years. Cmon Rode, you make great hardware, how about putting just a little work into the software side. It’s embarrassing how sad the quality of the available apps (this is the worst of them).
This app looks and works like it’s a high school beginner programming class project that at best would get a C- grade. (Only because it actually runs, doesn’t crash the phone, and records audio. Sadly, you can’t do anything with the recording. You can’t export it, delete it, or use it outside the app.
It needs to be completely rewritten or just removed from the store
