Trouble emailing clips

Radio reporter

I can no longer type in my email when sending an audio clip. It allows me to cut and past from another application, but that is very time consuming. I use this app for work and have repeatedly had problems with it over the past year.



I’m really upset because I bought this so I could cut my own dance music, and it doesn’t work AT ALL! I can’t even play music that I have downloaded and it won’t tell me how to “fix the problem”. Just really dissatisfied and wish I could get my money back.

What good is an audio editor that can’t open files?


$15 down the drain - the only available import option is from the iTunes library - earth to NCH, this is an iPad - no access to the Files, iCloud, anything - worthless app
