Customer Reviews

Great mic buggy app.

This app is a reincarnation of the FiRE app by audio labs. Seems like the same company because the app is identical. The only thing is that one called Rode Rec is more buggy. Plus the formatting on the iPad is complete messed up. The problem with FiRE was that it didn't get updated to newer phones and iOS I think this is also another dead app. I had many features that I like. I hope to either find a competent alternative or that they will work on the bugs in this one. But it seems hopeless.

Great mic terrible software

Yikes super buggy. There are better apps as of 2/4/15 that can do a better job and in most cases for free. If you plan to charge for an app at least make an effort to make it reliable. At the moment the mic cannot record anything through the software and sometimes doesn't recognize it. I don't seem to have a problem of the mic being recognized by third party apps. For shame for charging us top dollar for a buggy app. For shame.

Disappointing, buggy, and costs $6

A little too buggy for professionals. I was able to crash it just by unplugging the mic. You would think rode would put the same effort into this app that they put into their pro grade products. I would give this app 4.5/5 if it didn't crash. This app needs an update soon if they want to take any more of my money.
