Simple to Use and Great Features!
Bought this app a while back to record from my Apple Watch and it works so good I use it on all my devices.
Simple, yet powerful functionality allows you to translate audio recordings to text and share them to a number of different services.
Surprisingly, the app does a pretty darn good job of translating through its text-to-speech engine. There are usually a few errors (not many at all) but I wouldn’t expect any better when I’m recording a meeting with some of the voices several feet away and a stock iPhone or Watch mic. When there are errors, they are very easy to fix just like correcting an iMessage.
Great with Apple Watch
This is a great, simple, easy to use app the with the latest dark mode update looks fantastic on the iPhone X, and also has great integration with the Apple Watch for simple recordings. Just hit the button and it automatically starts recording even in the background. It really needs a few things though.
1. A better tutorial explaining how to do things like rename files. 2 of the 3 features I was going to ask for are already features! And I just now found them as I’m writing this after weeks of using the app.
2. It would be nice if there was an option in the app to “just press record” like on the watch where opening the app goes into a 3-5 second countdown timer and then starts recording (so it’s easy to cancel if you don’t want to) this should be an option though.
3. My third was going to be about playing back recordings on the watch, which unless this update just added that I didn’t see you could do. This app just got even better AS I’m writing this review. Awesome.
Great App, need ability to edit transcripts
Great for dictating notes and reminders. Of course the transcribing isn’t always perfect, nor do I expect it to be. My issue is that there is no way to edit the transcription in the app. Meaning you need to share the transcript with another app (the developer suggested Notes) in order to edit any words that were not correctly transcribed.
The developer said that this feature may be added in the future, although they have no immediate plans to do so.
Not a deal breaker for me, just extremely annoying. Just think it’s something people interested in this app should know.
