Ratings and Reviews
I really want to like it but...
Why wouldnt there be a pass through lightning port that you can charge your phone while using this? I can only record 2 hour long sets before the phones dead, and if i dont stop the recording before the battery dies, the recording doesn’t save. Contacted shure support about this and they said it should save it to camera roll automatically if the battery dies, but i lost 2 hours of video this weekend. Not happy. Id recommend using the mv88 only if you do short videos. Anything longer than an hour or two is flirting with disaster. This app and the mv88 drain your battery in less than 2 hours with airplane mode on and the screen brightness as low as it goes. You also cant lock the screen to preserve battery life. It stops recording if you do that. Very frustrating.

Sorry to hear that you're having problems with the MV88 and battery life. We do recommend putting your phone in airplane mode while recording, as it can help increase battery life. But we will pass your feedback on to our team. Thanks!
Nice app but extreme battery drain
I love the controls in this app. But I'm noticing severe battery drain while recording video with this app vs. recording with the iOS camera. In both instances using an MV88 for the audio with phone set to airplane mode. Recorded a 3-4 minute video and with this app I saw as much as 10% or more battery drain, whereas with the iOS camera I only saw 1-2% battery drain for the same length recording.
Can’t be relied upon (anymore)
Update: It’s become unreliable. Apart from the level to make sure the shot is straight, I can’t recommend it anymore. I’ve had long sets ruined because the app just stops recording. This is after a reinstall. It used to be solid as a rock. I’ll stick with Filmic Pro.
This app is very helpful in that it allows the mic gain of the MV88 to be controlled via the app and not have to switch to the default audio Shure MV app. Also, the peak meters are a welcome addition too (previously I used Filmic or Impact for the meters) but this is tailor made for the hardware.
All in all, big thanks to the Shure team for a great piece of hardware and the standalone video app. Will update review after more usage and comment on any room for improvement.
