Excellent compliment to the MV88


This app is very helpful in that it allows the mic gain of the MV88 to be controlled via the app and not have to switch to the default audio Shure MV app. Also, the peak meters are a welcome addition too (previously I used Filmic or Impact for the meters) but this is tailor made for the hardware.
All in all, big thanks to the Shure team for a great piece of hardware and the standalone video app. Will update review after more usage and comment on any room for improvement.

Nice app but extreme battery drain


I love the controls in this app. But I'm noticing severe battery drain while recording video with this app vs. recording with the iOS camera. In both instances using an MV88 for the audio with phone set to airplane mode. Recorded a 3-4 minute video and with this app I saw as much as 10% or more battery drain, whereas with the iOS camera I only saw 1-2% battery drain for the same length recording.

Lost sound

Redmond mom

I was happy to find the video app so it is easier to monitor the sound input for my children's music recordings. Today I was recording my daughters clarinet solo at a recital and about 3/4 through the 5 minute piece, the sound suddenly stopped recording. This is really disappointing. I am using an iPhone X.

Developer Response

Some users with MOTIV Microphones may experience issues on iPhone 8 and iPhone X, such as loss of sound on the recording. Apple has acknowledged the problem and should be releasing a fix soon!
