Ratings and Reviews
I have a project due tomorrow for my Intro to Flash course and it requires audio. This app allowed me to import recordings straight from my text messages and from my email, clip them exactly where I needed to, and then export them to another app for conversion or to my email. All quickly, precisely, and easily. The interface is very user friendly and the response time is smooth. I only wish it did two more things. One of my files has audio that's too quiet, so I had to export the recording to another app to increase the volume. It also had to be in MP3 format to be compatible with my animation software, so I had to transfer all my chosen recordings to another app for conversion. For what this app does, it is fantastic. I highly recommend this to those who need to record AND edit audio files without a full-scale sound booth.
Best in class, IF at all others can compete!
Thanks for the great app!
I have had this app for a while, I got it coz I thought I might use it.
For the last 2 or 3 weeks I have used it quite a bit. I love(d) the ability to post to Facebook (which just stopped working!!). I'm now posting using twitter which feeds to Facebook :-)!
I love ability to wifi and download to my computer (super fast), to edit, attach to videos etc.
Among the best features is ability to control input. I record at events and wanting clear sound, I created wiring that allows me to record before the sound is amplified and sent to speakers. iPhone 3GS now converted to iPod works great as it does not have noises that I would have got recording through laptop.
It would be great if I could figure out why the app quit posting to Facebook (even after subscribing to email list, which says I have about 3hrs of recording left). That is reason for giving 4 star (there is no option for 4.5)
Thank you again for awesome app!
It just works! I love it.
After years of struggling with the clunky Fire recording app, I am now heaving a big sigh of relief. I love iSaidWhat?! It's simple to record. Simple to get recordings in from other applications, or to get them out via email or to social share sites. The interface is not gorgeous, but perfectly clear. The share process is fast. I've been using it to record hour-long talks with a lavallier mic plugged into the headphone jack of my iphone. The recordings are clean. Not a hitch so far. Good job!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
