Customer Reviews

Absolutely Great App - Highly Recommend

eXtra Voice Recorder is a fantastic application - I absolutely love it. I use it on my computer when talking on Skype inside the U.S. or with other countries - meetings, consultations, important conversations with family, etc. What I specifically like about it: 1) It has so far never failed 2) The quality of recording is really good 3) It is extremely easy to use 4) It is easy to make markers in the conversation (without stopping and restarting recording) 5) I can type the name of tracks while still speaking to the person 6) Afterwards, I can place a copy of the track, or the whole converstion in the needed folder, so that I can easily find it when I need to - it would play via the iTunes then.
I have not read what problems the unlucky people got (those who rated the app as 2 and 1), but I certainly enjoy and value this app very much!

Great recording app for students

When I downloaded this app, it helped me to record the whole class, and take note for each time frame at the same time.
Noise from my classmates was canceled out too, which helps me alot.
The thing makes eXtra Voice Recorder different from other recording apps is that it allows you to take note, tags in during the record.
I was able to study again when I get home.
Pretty straightforward, easy to use, helpful and worth the money! You won’t be disappointed.

It’s not working as well as it was

In the beginning I loved it and it was working fabulously! Now, it records for 5 minutes and stops recording. I have to restart recording every 5 minutes or so. It used to record as long as I wanted it to record. I have deleted all of my previous recordings and cleaned out the files. it is still not recording the way it used to. I am not happy with the way it is currently working. I gave the product 3 stars because of past performance to present performance. I hope there is an update with a fix.
