Good but could be great

All in all, solid recording. PRO features are good but one stumbling block is when I hide the flashing red light and timer in the pro version(because I don’t want people to see I’m recording), there is no way to see anywhere else what the elapsed time is. So, I need to see elapsed time somewhere, just don’t want it counting prominently making it obvious I’m recording the meeting. Maybe just mousing over the icon in the dock or upper right screen where it’s running and get a tool tip of the elapsed time would be nice.

Was compelled to write this review

I just started using it, just tried and from first time usage i am being asked to rate, rate, rate when ever i open. Here it is tajke it

great app, great great, only you can do this kind of app. You guys are so great that you ask users to write a review even before they start using it and pop up evry time they open it.

It’s not simple enough for me.

I will write a review as soon as I figure-out how to use it. Many years ago, Apple had a really great simple recording program called, "Simple Sound.” How i miss it. Anyway, I’ll keep fooling around with Simple Recprdr until I learn how to use it to record my voice. Until then, I’m going to give it a 2-star rating. UPDATE: I finally figured-out how to use it, It seems okay, but it took more steps than I had expected. I’ll be reconsidering my star-rating after I work with it for awhile.
