A fine piece of work


I was able to record a lengthy legal interview in a noisy office using just my ipad held at a discreet distance.

It worked perfectly and delivered excellent sound on playback.

Interface could use a little tweaking. The 'Play' button is placed obscurely and is red, which is usually the color of the 'Stop' button



So many easy editing options.

My husband is overseas and we cannot call him at his current location. My children record messages to their Dad. When they are done I delete any long pauses and export to their Dad's email.

I have only used the light version because I think spending $7 on an app is outrageous BUT this is so good that I know I will drink the kool-aid and purchase the "upgrade" very soon...

Mostly because the ads stream right over the record button and my youth can't seem to hit record without opening up 12 ads...



I love the app but have emailed the company twice and have heard nothing back. The picture feature doesn't work and there are plenty of glitches with the Dropbox connection. Or maybe there aren't these glitches but since there is no contact from the support team, I'm just losing patience. I've had better support from free apps.
