Poor Quality


Bummed after upgrading to the purchased version. I used this to shorten music for a dance performance. Quality of music I purchased through iTunes sounds horribly garbled, underwater! It sounds like I used bootlegged recordings. I was hoping I could use an app that would suit the purpose, as I don't have a pc to support proper software, incredibly disappointed. I would have happily paid more to a person to actually make a quality cut for me, since it seems the app isn't really for music tech novices as myself. Now I know better. Dances look great, but music sounds like a warped tape from 1989. Sigh

Developer Response

Hi Jenny,
We are sorry to hear this happened to you. This is the first time we have heard of a user having this experience. Was the music muddled within the app before you exported or only after you exported? How did you export your music? We appreciate this feedback and would love to get more information, so we can find a solution to this problem. While our development team looks into this issue, our support team would be the best resource for you to look for a solution:

Almost good


Several flaws in the iPhone version. It's not intuitive to a rookie music editor, so lots
Of time spent figuring out the slider bars and how to use them effectively. Very difficult to get precise cuts. The "select specified time" function mentioned on the various help sites is not part of the iPhone version. Also as another user mentioned, it allows the phone to go dark and you have to log in each time to get back to the file, tedious if you are rehearsing a dance routine to an edited song.

Nice editing and FX but,

The Big Podkowski

The sharing capabilities not so much. Positive, is the FX and the editing and I really like the noise canceling in the S removing a fact. It's called cleanup on the app

But what's driving me crazy is I can't understand why there isn't any exporting or importing to services like Dropbox or iCloud whatever. It's only from iTunes and not everybody has files on iTunes nor should we. I want to be able to export to these other cloud services and I'm sure everybody else does. Is that in the works?

Also if I record an hour podcast it takes a very long time to save after adding fx or editing. And then it's very cumbersome to email as well. There's a lot of time loading audio files that seems unnecessary.

Please fix and add the necessary updates because there still is a glimmer of hope for this app.
