  • What about...

    By babybackribs and chicken liver
    What the ability to rename the recording or typing your own description of the recording? If there is any way to do this, please provide more information or include these features in the next update.
  • Nope!

    By TaraMichelle932
    The primary point of purchasing this app was to solve a pain point that I experience. This app does not work for meetings in excess of 1 attendee. It will not transcribe audio recordings with more than one voice. Please put this in your backlog: As a user, I’d like the ability to transcribe in writing the audio that’s recorded from speakers in meetings. Very simple. Will ask Apple for a refund. I do not recommend this app because it doesn’t do what it says it will.
  • Great app, just missing...

    By topohero
    ... a way to remind me to take action on my recordings. I’m always on the move and I need an app that takes down my thoughts, transcribes them, and sends them to my phone. In all these the app works perfectly and I can’t find something that does better, even at this price. But having these transcribed notes on the phone, I still need to remember to work on them. Enabling notifications (badges maybe?) would be extremely useful. Even better - integration with services like IFTTT so that I can get reminders or email alerts.
  • Thank you!

    Suggestion: I like the widget but can Launch Center support be integrated into the next update? Would be more streamline.
  • Does not transcribe well

    By jonfoxey
    I was hoping this app would be 85-90% accurate for transcribing interviews. It’s closer to 40, which is disappointing. I think you’re overselling the functionality of it
  • Not working. This app doesn’t appear in my Apple Watch

    By -tOpToP--
    I downloaded this app to use on my Apple Watch. For conveniently record anything I want from Apple Watch. But the app doesn’t appear on my watch until now. Please don’t waste your time and money.
  • So disappointed with Just Record

    By Ladyhunter2
    I purchased Just Record believing that I would be able to record telephone calls on my iPhone 8 only to discover that this app does NOT allow you to record a phone conversation. Very displeased and disappointed with my purchase of Just Record. I do NOT recommend spending money buying this app if you have the need to record certain phone conversations.
  • Great, but missing good watch support

    By briannebales
    Please add the ability to record via AirPods in the Apple Watch. Also, I can’t access my Apple Watch records on my iPad; they only show up on my iPhone.
  • Great app!

    By Cr3ate
    Would be nice to have more sync options.
  • Great app but...

    By Jon Kelling
    Great app, but there is one thing that I was confused about after the last update. All recordings went up a second, and my latest one came out to 2:60. This isn’t a problem, but it was just something I was confused about. Also since the last update, new recordings are all extremely quiet.
