This app is great for anyone who is involved in a lot of meetings. You can concentrate on what is happening and let reason8 take the notes and create action items for you.

Unclear about what this app is

This app claims to be a tool for converting speech to text.
In reality, it is for hosting and recording meetings then transcribing.

As far as I can tell, it is useless for personal use. If you are a solo professional, steer clear of this. You will waste your time with an app that is trying to connect multiple cell phones rather than doing what it claims : audio to text.

Useless time waster for those of us who work solo and need a transcriber.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. You are right - reason8 works better for in-person meetings with muliple participants. But you can record yourself - just host a meeting with a single participant and start recording.

Please, feel free to contact us in case of any questions.

Promising tech in frustratingly bad shell

The app shows promising feature. But the bad UX makes it unusable for day to day usage:

Frustrating registration process doesn’t allow me to use secure password generated by system or 1Password. It’s just return Provide Valid Value if you paste the pass.

App not optimized for buttonless iPhones. Speakers number modal (why does it even a modal?) covers home bar. Play buttons are unusable since they also cover home bar. And drag means app switching...

No mentions of paid subscription whatsoever UNTIL you try get meeting recorded. In front of all people. This forcing UI is horrible. Like IRS scam calls. Even before showing any value.

Swipe to go back gesture opens android-like menu, instead of actually getting user back.

Androin-like Join meeting and Host meeting menu should be the one screen instead of two different. And one option should be chosen by defaults. This is iOS, not android.

It will take you 6 taps and 4 screens before you actually will start meeting recording. You have to read all those text before make those decisions.

There’s no way to exit meeting without saying anything.

Paywall screen doesn’t provide exit possibility. This cross in top right corner isn’t active.

Wow, thank you so much for such detailed feedback. We really appreciate your advice. Don't you want to become one of our testers or product advisors? Please feel free to contact us at
Meanwhile, we will do our best to fix things that you mentioned.

The reason why this app is a bit complicated to start - is that to get a usable transcript for an in-person meeting with multiple participants one needs multiple phones/microphones. We created advanced tech that works in hard conditions and now we create a product for it. We hope that even with such experience, you still have had a chance to record a meeting and get the result. We will be glad to see you again and hear more thoughts about potential improvement.
