I can't believe it!!

I have no clue what their budget is for this app but I bet it isn't much. Really upset this morning. I needed a recorder for my Rode Wireless Filmaker Mic and decided to give the app a try. I can not obtain the file. I assume you must upgrade to the paid version to get the file but I am not sure if that'll get the files off my computer. I am beyond ticked at Rode right now. It has actually made me wonder if their products are even worth the price they sell them at. I spent 400 dollars on a mic, at least give me an app that runs if your going to advertise about your app.

Fire was better

This app was once known as Fire before Rode acquired the app. Now the app seems to be fairly weak at best. But I can't get the LE version to even work. The buttons are grayed out and the only button that stands out is a request to upgrade to the paid version. The reviews at the paid version repeat the same issues for users - people can't get the app to work, buttons grayed out, etc. Fire was a breeze to use and it's curious why the app now is so buggy and difficult. Also a shame that a solid hardware company like Rode can't make this app sing.

Works just fine

I can’t understand the bad reviews for this app. I have used it literally hundreds of times with the rode lav mic. It always works, sounds good and offloaded the files quick and easy. Maybe my workflow is more simple but it’s always worked for me. I use an iPhone 6s 16gb and no problems at all.
