Import Audio Files

At first I was disappointed because I couldn’t import a file. After a lot of experimentation, I managed. I noticed that some of my files would import with no problem. I changed the name of the one I was having difficulty with and it imported immediately. I can’t explain this but it worked.

This app is really growing on me. I’m finding it to be very useful.

Ditto on Ninjasmoke's review - playback not working w/wireless headsets

Since upgrading to my iPhone 7 I have not been able to get playback of recordings to work with any of my wireless headsets. This is one feature I really need and I've written to Roe Mobile but have not received any support. Could my settings be off? Please fix this feature or reply with needed setting corrections.


I’ve used Smart Recorder since I bought my first smart phone about 3-4 years ago. I do not play an instrument or sight read so it’s the best accompaniment I can practice to-for feedback. I used it to record my choir practices and then edited out the unimportant “chat.” It helps me to learn a lot of detail more correctly and I do t know what I’d do without it. I use it for so many other things too and am so thankful for Roe Development for making this “multi- wonderful” App. Thank you!

Not high priced $$

I purchased "The Smart Record App mid to late September, 2013, after trying the free lite version. The specs said would record up to 20 minutes in .wav file audio. Well 2014 rings in and I notice there is a Recorder 7. Which is what prompted me to tell this. The most I could record and email as a .wav was about 9 minutes, and much less now. When I use the App now it ask if I wish to upgrade. No I wish to use what I paid, for a App service that does not know work as Company said. Apple was no help & it has done me know good to email your company as I have over 3 times !! Once should be enough. So Thank you very LITTLE FOR YOUR NON SUPPORT, BUT TAKING MY MONEY !!??

Well I noticed now in 2017 my review is not posted. I have sent many EMAILS TO ROE. With not one return response !! Where I am from, we call that stealing.

Developer Response ,

The size of the .wav file that can be sent is a function of your email service provider and the sampling rate you choose for export. Many email service providers have a limit of 20M. The easiest way around this is to use Dropbox instead. Just install the Dropbox app, login into your account with Dropbox. When you try and export from Smart Recorder, an option to export to Dropbox will appear. There is no limit on the size of .wav files for Dropbox.
