Love this app!

I have Mountain Lion and this works great on it! I've been using it almost every day for more than a month. With it I record I lectures, meetings, college, etc. My recordings normally fluctuate from 1.5 to 4 hours long. It appears not to have a limit on recording time. At first I couldn't find my saved recordings folder, but when I did I changed the folder location to iTunes Music Folder so its easier to access. Also, now I put them on my iTunes and when at the gym or on traffic I listen to my recordings through my ipod/iphone to review and study. If you have your Mac plugged to the power supply you can also close the lid and it keeps recording (great when you want to get out of that boring lecture and listen to it later). If you need to crop or edit audio files just drag and drop them from the source folder to Garage Band and thats it! I read some users had problems with the app. For those that have this problem maybe you should delete and reinstall or maybe you just have to update your version. I recomend it to everybody! By far the best free app I've downloaded so far!!!

Works very well so far

I don’t have an I Phone, so I thought I would try this, to record my own notes, etc. for later use, and also, to record and replay my voice as I am practicing for confident public speaking, utilizing an audio course, which I play/pause when I am using the voice recorder. It is excellent !! Very clear and does exactly what it is supposed to. Files are stored and date stamped perfectly. As long as you dont mind lugging around your laptop, you do not need an I Phone or dictaphone if you have this app.

Won't even open

When I first got this app, I was quite excited about it. After two hours, however, I have come to detest it. I opened it once it finished downloading, closed the popup asking me if I wanted to upgrade to the paid version, and made a little test recording. Upon finishing that, I tried to name the recording "test". However, the app quit quite inconveniently and unexpectedly when yet another popup appeared, asking me if I wanted to buy yet another app, presumably made by the same developers. I tried repeatedly to reopen the app, but to no avail. Now, I can't even remove the app because it thinks it's still open, when it is clearly not. I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but it's still a bug and needs to be fixed.
