It is somewhat tricky to learn how to use, and the manual could be written and organized better, but that might just be me. I wanted a simple audio recording app for my tablet so that I won’t miss a class I can’t be present for. I think this should work well. It records for a long time and is clear enough. I appreciate that it’s free!

PERFECT for Songwriters!!! ⭐️
This app is perfect for songwriters. I love being able to record my song ideas quickly. Then I love being able to listen back to all of my ideas and have them play back automatically one after another. I also love being able to delete recordings quickly. And I love being able to export my good recordings quickly. I also appreciate that this app creator made two apps that we can use. I use one for writing songs, and I use the other app (which is basically the same app) for recording my Piano improvisations. So thanks for making two apps for us to be able to use! For future updates, I hope in will allow for a bigger font, as my eyes have a hard time seeing small fonts as I age. Again, I love this app, and I use it every week, and it helps me to write a song every week!!! Thanks to the creator of this app. Blessings to you and your family. Kind regards.

This dictaphone is ok in terms of sound quality but is really annoying in that I can’t just scroll back a few seconds while listening to a recording. They should at least have -15 seconds playback. I end up popping back minutes behind, it’s especially bad on the small iPhone that I use, and I have to rehear the annoying voice a professor I interviewed, over and over. Also, the dictaphone app is continuously heckling me about giving it a rating, so I finally did

User manual
User interface is only mildly user friendly. In the app, go to the section called “About” and you will find a link that lets you download a user app. Developers otherwise will have you believe all you get to guess is their web page high level descriptions of the functions and some you tube apps with front end ads. Generally guys, you need someone to help you run your business. You’ll do better if can get that!

Great Resource and Tool
I have found this to be a very valuable resource. It allows me to record hours of lectures and in the comfort of my own home and at my own pace (very important ), play back all that was said. This enables me to capture all that I may have missed in the classroom or corporate meeting .

Love the Continuous PlayBack!
I record musical ideas with my phone and I had yet to find a recording app that plays each file one after the other, until I downloaded this one! Love it! I can listen to my musical ideas as one continuous stream, which is fantastic.

Pretty good for what it is
Have to pay for the voice activation feature but still the cheapest option for that and pretty intuitive to use.

Great App
Thanks for a great app - I’m finally free from a PC-based system that sometimes brought me back to the office on weekends for dictating. Turns out, my transcriptionist says voice quality from the iPhone sound files is better than from my old dictaphone!

Does not work as it should
I bought this for recording notes as I inspect my apiary. I had hoped to use with my Bluetooth headset. Unfortunately enabling the headset causes feedback because it doesn’t seem to turn off the phones speaker. Also seems to have problems if it can’t detect either a cell connection or a Wi-Fi connection.

High Quality. Pesky Dialogs.
Several reviewers have mentioned The fact that the app has a pop-up that frequently asks the user to rate the app. I think that’s why the overall rating for the app is as low as it is. If I haven’t already found another app, I will purchase this one when this is fixed.

Simple to use
I just started using this app and love it. I do mindful meditation while walking and like to use the dictaphone to record profound thoughts, then listen and document them when I get home.

Ok, but can’t rewind or fast forward
Love the quality of recording on this! So frustrated that there is no rewind or fast forward with this app! I use this for my college classes so I can listen to them again. There are times when I miss something and want to rewind, but I have to start at the beginning. Very frustrating!

Nothing special
I was looking for a hands free recorder for my phone. You know, open with my Bluetooth, initiate recording using Bluetooth buttons, stop recording using Bluetooth buttons. While driving or walking or whatever. This app advertises itself as hands free. There is nothing hands free about this app, other than it eliminates picking up a pencil and paper to record notes. LIKE EVERY OTHER VOICE RECORDER EVER MADE.

Multiple upgrades needed for it to be functional.
Why do I need to upgrade in order to send the file??? Why do I need to upgrade AGAIN to be able to grip the recording. Really- just make it paid to begin with, or only offer the pro upgrade. If I knew every add on was a-la-Carte, I would have spent $5 just to avoid the hassle.

No different from the default mic app on IOS
It doesn’t hold your place. Sometimes it just randomly skips back to the beginning - v frustrating! Especially when it turns to the lock screen, you re-open your phone and it will skip back. 15 second back or forth would be a useful function... Expandable timeline for longer clips would also be useful... Point markers for longer clips anyone - yes please! Larger timeline so it’s easier to click on etc etc... Not difficult to implement I’m sure, but not available.

Can’t use the recordings
I physically can’t access them or export them. I have no way to use the recordings I have already. If I’m mistaken I’ll change the review but for now I can’t use them so it is a bad app for recording audio

“Free” app is unusable nonsense
Tried dictaphone. Figured I’d upgrade it as required. Made a thirty minute dictation. When I went to listen to it, I realIzed there isn’t even a pause button or scroll control. All you can do is play or stop-and-fully-rewind. Give me a break, their free version isn’t even skeletal, it’s emaciated. Basically you’ve taken my dictation and held it hostage unless I pay you a 1.99 so I can download it to something useful. Real garbage. And not at all a reasonable implementation of free-with-paid-Add-ons. Deleted.
