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.



Thanks for fixing iOS 11.3 bug so quickly!

Love the Shure mic and this app. Being able to quickly name files and then airdrop them to my mac is so nice.

A few things I would love:

1. The same mic with a headphone jack built in.
2. When saving an audio file I wish the name was already highlighted so I didn't have to click the 'x' to rename it.
3. I wish the keyboard would automatically come up when saving an audio file.
4. The ability to lock the orientation of the screen when upside down so it doesn't keep bouncing back and forth.

These things are super nitpicky but just wanted to throw them out there. This product is amazing and I'm recording amazing sounds all the time.

P.s. I'm using an iPhone 7 Plus so thanks for bringing back the Bluetooth monitoring even though I'm sure there will be latency.
