  • Phenomenal App!

    By Greg3323648
    I downloaded this app about an hour ago for my iPhone 7 and Series 2 Watch, and it is unbelievable! Extremely easy to use, syncing of about a dozen test recordings from Watch to iPhone through Bluetooth has been flawless, and transcription of these recordings just about flawless! I also love how the app stays discreet (Watch face not on) when using with watch os4. Well worth the 4.99 cost.
  • Latest update messed up UI on Watch

    By Jonathan Y Chan
    Now the UI sometimes starts recording when I click on it from the watch face and sometimes doesn’t; the sensitivity scrolling with the Digital Crown in the recent recordings page is also very buggy. Great app but the watch UI just became very irritating to use.

    This app opens and will not go away. 5 people in my company have the same issue. Had to delete it twice. It just starts up and won’t go away. Great when it works but since iOS 11 and watch iOS 4 this app blows
  • Feature request

    By jbobrow
    Can a force touch on the icon start recording? It seems like that would be such a great way to get started quickly.
  • Great on watch

    By snoop_z
    Watch app is fantastic - swipe to a face that has the Just Press Record complication, tap on it, and app automatically begins recording EVEN when not connected to my phone. Version 3.x has brought some improvements to the Watch app and to the iPhone BUT has dropped support for swiping to delete recordings and folders, thereby making the process of managing large numbers of recordings a bit of a pain - you have to tap on the recording, then tap on delete, then tap on delete recording, then tap yet again to confirm deleting from iCloud
  • Background Apple Watch recording!

    By DanoSchmano
    Nice upgrade with WatchOS 4.
  • Love It!

    By WordBrain Fiend
    This app is smooth! Minimal manipulation needed to start the recording, transcription is great (and easily shared with other apps), and it's all very simple and elegant!
  • Best recording app with watch app

    By Haberjr
    This has become my favorite recording app. I used to use recordium, but this app has now replaced it. I especially like the fact that I can record on my Apple Watch and that it syncs with my iPhone. The app gets regularly updated. Highly recommended.
