What’s going on??

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills, I’m seeing pics and videos of all these mic “features / settings / presets” screens, have exhausted every button/page on the app and see nothing of the sort. I have a record button, a headphone icon, and can change the theme to light or dark. That’s the extent of it. Where in the world are all these extensive setting and preset features???

Update . I figured it out - the whole page that holds that content was blank except for mic “gain”. I unplugged the mic and back in a couple times and all the settings loaded. Those settings are showing up for me about 50% of the time. Sometimes briefly a spinner and blank, sometimes spinner and settings are there. Just keep unplugging and plugging in until it populates

Sorry that you had connectivity issues with your mic. When this happens, it may help to clean the lightning connector on your device as any dirt may cause connection issues. We'll make sure to pass along your comments to our team. Thank you!

Love It So Much, I bought 2!!!

These mics are super easy to use, and after figuring out the app, by doing a little reading, I really enjoyed the results! I do so much recording with iPhones, and now that I have my new iPhone X, I have bought a second Shure MV88 mic to use with my 5s to record audio only, and my 6s to I record video and audio together! I then will mix them with Board mixes to get the crowd ambience sound, and it all turns out so fantastically. All the musicians I have filmed have commented that they enjoy the sound from this mic much better than they do the native iPhone mics. It doesn’t seem to work as well with my iPhone X, but only if I change lenses in the middle of doing a video, (the sound drops out for just a second, i.e., using the optical zoom). Every time I use these mics, people stop and ask me about them!

UNRELIABLE: not ready for the big time

Shure makes incredible mikes don’t give me wrong, but this is one utterly frustrating application. I don’t know how many times I’ve had that spur of creative juice picked up the phone opened up the app plug in the mike and started recording and Wala what comes out of the other end is absolute silence. His application seems to shut off while you were playing in recording when the device screen turns off perhaps this company didn’t even decide to test with the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 or maybe without a phone in their hand at all. You’re happy to do one thing right, consistently and reliably record anything. This does not do that at all. What a waste of buying $150 microphone along with using this app. I would suggest getting out all the bugs before trying to release an app on the App Store.
