Super useful.

This app is really handy for transcribing meetings and dictating memos to myself. It lets you export to Evernote, mail and other apps. It saves me loads of time and money.

Not what I’m looking for. Otherwise? Don’t know.

I’m looking for an app to listen to and transcribe from audio around me, TV or Radio. I am hearing impaired. I also like foreign films I need to translate them English unto English via text or audio / headphones

Worst App Ever

For an interview I paid $2.99 for an hour. It cut out many times, and I am now missing a lot of the interview! Don’t waste your money!
