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!

Bluetooth issues have been resolved in the current release 4.0.10.

Excellent voice recorder

I use this program for my work. It allows me to record my daily weather report that I give over the radio to firefighters. The radio program will only play it if it’s a certain format (wav, mono, 8000 sampling rate). I have yet to find another program that allows me to customize the format to meet the specs I’d need to play the audio. Excellent program, never fails. From a first responder - Don’t hesitate to purchase.

Disappointed in export upgrade

I purchased an upgrade for $9.99 so that I could export things to Facebook and other places. Since I purchased it, I have not been able to do that. It won’t go anywhere once I do, and I have emailed the company that created this recording app. I have not received any response whatsoever and I’m still not able to do what I paid for.

I have contacted Apple and I told him I would try to see if I could work things out by removing recordings and doing certain things to see if maybe I could do something different. I have not been able to do that and I have not been able to get a refund yet. I will try again to contact Apple and see if they can refund the money since I have had no luck getting hold of the company that created the app.
