Customer Reviews

Powerful and Useful, but so many bugs!

Very powerful, audio quality is great and you can spend plenty of time fiddling with settings to get the best setup for your needs. Works best on iPhone, which is a shame because I much prefer the app's clearer interface on an iPad. To me, it feels like development of the iPad version had been a little neglected. There are many bugs mostly caused by changes in screen orientation.

No record button? Yeah, I had this problem, but found that you need to launch the app in portrait, open your recording THEN turn it landscape. Launching and load a recording directly in landscape means much of the buttons vanish to someplace off screen, including record.

I'm also having some trouble fine tuning some settings. Seems the app crashes when trying to adjust the compression attack, amount others...

Still, it's worth using despite these issues. Just feels like it's due some bug-fixing updates, a little disappointing considering it's not free and from a reputable brand.

Better than the reviews indicate

I use it with my iPhone and record to use with my DSLR. Just import into movie editor and overlay with video and it works. I would like them to develop so that you can save your preferred settings rather than having to go in and change the settings every time you do a new recording.

Lousy interface

Sound quality is good but, as other have said, app is full of holes in iOS 8. Very occasionally the record button is visible in landscape mode, but most of the time it is not. The 'find location' never works - not surprisingly as, when you look in Settings for this app, there is no option to allow it to access Location!

Desperately needs work. Nowhere near the standard of Rode hardware.
