Get live voice transcription in multiple languages! Tap a word in the transcript to jump straight to that point in the audio, and vice versa. Edit the transcript right in the app.

You can even import audio from other apps and transcribe them automatically.

When you download the app, you get 20 premium minutes of transcription to start, the option of buying on-demand premium minutes, and a special, one-time purchase of transcription services. And you get a recorder that (with or without transcription enabled) lets you:

* Add bookmarks.
* Zoom in on the audio waveform for precise seeking.
* Slow down audio without changing the pitch.
* Automatically upload your recording and/or transcription to a variety of cloud services, or export with options like email or messaging.

What's New

Version 2.2.0

Now you can change the size of the font from settings within the app. And you can enable a mode to expand to a new screen where you can see the wall of past text while recording, instead of just the single line at the bottom. With new stability and bug fixes.

The worst


I don’t usually waste time on reviews, but this is the worst app I’ve ever purchased. I used this for a parent/teacher meeting. When played back, it was a bizarre mix of unintelligible phrases, at best. At the worst, there were terribly crude interjections and a slew of curse words. Garbled garbage. In hindsight, I’m certainly glad I took my own notes. It might have been comical if it weren’t for the terrible things this app spewed back. It has to be a joke to someone, but I’m the fool for purchasing 100 minutes of voice to text I’ll never be able to use.

Great app!


I would strongly recommend this app to anyone needing to record then transcribe a meeting or interview. It’s super user friendly and straightforward. The ability to slow down the recording is especially useful.

Awesome app!


I was totally channeling the Agent Cooper / Diane (a la Twin Peaks) vibe as I recorded some notes after an interview. It was great to have an app that did the transcription for me for future reference so I didn’t have to do it myself!
