NOT FREE AT ALL  extradimensionalemily  1 star

yet another app saying free but it is a lie.


Punish loyal users  julianjaden  1 star

App used to be free before the update, thx 4 nothing


Not for medical dictation  Javkov  1 star

I tried this app to dictate some scientific documents but quickly enough I found out that it does not work with medical terminology. You can’t change the “specialty” in the settings bar because the only option is “general”. Looks like if the system is not associated to an EMR it does not understand medical terms. Just cancelled my subscription.


App great; support/subscription awful  Macstout  2 star

Product is excellent; automatic renewal is very flawed and support is “head-bangingly” maddening. For a tech company, they are years behind providing even borderline service. Several hours spent trying to renew subscription—without luck or even an opportunity to speak to someone who understands what “it’s not working” means. For a productivity app, it wastes my time trying to keep it up and running.


Most accurate voice dictation I have found  cp77  4 star

I have been using this app now for a couple of months and in my own experience, it is the most accurate voice dictation in the app store. I use it anytime I need critical accuracy in dictation and am rapidly getting spoiled by it. The downside is that I do not like paying $15 per month for an app and it is still a toss-up in my mind as to whether the accuracy in dictation is worth the monthly cost. It really is a premium app in its performance and I don’t expect it for free, but just wish it were bit more reasonable in cost. It is a 6-star app in consistent performance, but I give it only four stars because it is so expensive.

WORTHLESS  Jillian51894  1 star

Can't even enter the app to use any of the services without some expensive subscription! Not a even a free trial, how do you expect to get more users with such a rigid setup? Don't waste your time on this app, its a waste!


Can’t log into app  Cspain11  1 star

This app has been very frustrating. One, after spending about 10 minutes dictating some important notes on my clients the app deleted my notes when I tried to copy them. So then I decided to uninstall the app and reinstall it. Once I did that I tried to log in and it kept saying that my email was not recognized in the system. I only use but so many email addresses so I know something is not right. I had a very important task to complete for work and was unable to finish and I am losing money in the process. I am very frustrated with this app I’m going to start to look for another. Tech-support as well is hard to get. I am very disappointed with dragon.


Garbage  RunningStan  1 star

This app is awful. I had the same login issues as everyone else. I was just robbed of $15. Thanks Nuance. Thanks Apple. Do not buy this app!!!

Professor Climate Change

Very Disappointed  Professor Climate Change  1 star

I purchased three copies of the Desktop version and was doing fine with the free mobile app. Suddenly a new version of IOS comes out and the free app doesn’t work anymore. So I sign up for the ridiculously expensive monthly service at $14.99 and it doesn’t work well at all. If you try a transfer your dictation and it fails, the program freezes and you lose all your dictation. You need to close the app, reopen it, and start again.


Unbelievable beyond my Expectation  Cherokee500  5 star

I was hesitant to pay 15 dollars per month for a mobile ability to dictate. I have used dragon for the past 10 years and I love it. It's technical in the beginning but once u train it, it works. Now this little app beats anything I have ever used to document. All u do is sign up and bam u are documenting. It recognizes ur voice without training. The only cons so far after a day of use is the commands are not easy and some won't work but I can stop and format how I like. I'm sure once I've been using longer won't be an issue. The other thing when u stop to correct a text it does jump u to the end of the page if u do not turn mic off. I have to say as sad as it is, all I need in life is my mobile dragon and my Netflix at the same great price. I won't even think twice about paying for this app!!!!!! Lol

Absolutely HORRIBLE ---> STAY AWAY  Boba De La Fette  1 star

It literally doesn't work. You can't sign up. You can't pay correctly. It's a bloody mess. A pain to get it uninstalled. Horrible.


About to drop my subscription  Katybigrice  2 star

This apt is now acting very glitchy. I'm starting to think it would save me more time typing out by hand when I'm dictating


Makes me more efficient in my work as a doctor  Larry_Wisc  5 star

I have been using Dragon anywhere now for about a month. I am a hospital-based physician. I have a long history of using Dragon products – for at least 15 years now. I think I have used just about every one of their medical versions. Nuance now has a cloud-based medical product – unfortunately my organization has not purchased it. I needed something that I could dictate into that was mobile. Although my organization has desktop front-end speech recognition available, that does not always work effectively for me because I had to go into a room that has a PC with the program installed on it. Here are some positives about this product: – it allows me to dictate using an iPad Pro with keyboard. As you may well know by now, once you put a keyboard on an iPad Pro, the speech recognition icon disappears. You have to otherwise disconnect the keyboard in order to dictate. – Accuracy is about 95%. – Excellent and fast linking with Evernote. This is very effective. However some users have experienced problems because once you send the document off to Evernote, it opens up another page and you have to do a second step – press "Sync". If you don't do that, it won't be sent. – It does a pretty good job of recognizing medical terms even though this is not the medical product. However I have had a few technical names it doesn't recognize. For instance if I dictate "Zosyn" – it was missing that term all the time. So, I had to add that term as a user "word". It still didn't recognize the word until I added a unique spoken form. For me that spoken form is "Zulu Zoh Sin" – now it gets it right every time. I use "Zulu" as the first word of every auto text I create. It is a unique term and it helps the program recognize right away that I'm about to say an auto text and thus improves recognition dramatically. Key features that made me willing to pay $15 a month to get this: – Very mobile. – I can dictate on the go. – Ability to use auto text with fields. – Works great with an iPad Pro. – Lets me use my iPhone, if I want to do it that way, while I am reviewing the EHR another PC. Although my organization does have a speech recognition solution, it is not always efficient for me to use it. I have to go to a dedicated PC in order to access it. I think it is a good idea to dictate in front of the patient whenever possible. That way, the patient has a better idea of how much time you're spending on their care, can hear the complexity of their situation and ask questions and besides that, it helps me remember that the patient can always read what I write. I especially like that I can dictate a note while walking between patients. Sometimes that is a lifesaver. There are times when I will get four admissions all at once. I do not have time to complete a note in a sequential fashion. If I do it that way, other patients will go a long time without any care. This way, I can at least dictate the important parts about the history and physical examination and then I can finish up the note later without forgetting details. One caveat: Wi-Fi access is always a requirement. Therefore, if I forget and dictate while I walk into a stairwell – I will you lose connectivity and may not realize it right away. I think that this is one of the first versions of Dragon Anywhere. There are a few functions of the program that need to be tweaked a little bit. I'm pretty sure that later versions will add some improvements. Here are a few functions I wish worked a little bit better: – it takes too long to navigate between fields in an auto text document. From the time I say "next input field" until it actually performs the function is about a two or three second delay. – It does not allow me to spell words on the fly. Desktop products allow you to do this. – When you add a specific word, it does not allow you to train the word. Taken as a whole. I really like the product. It helps me be more efficient at work. I pay $15 a month out of my own pocket to have it. Really, I shouldn't have to pay that business expense myself, but nevertheless, the efficiency still makes it worthwhile. Oh, and no worries about PHI. I just title each document with the patient room. That way there is no personal health information.

This is a terrific app and it's great that it works as well as the Dragon desktop application. Keep up the good work!!

Disappointed Birds

Less Than Stellar  Disappointed Birds  1 star

This app does not support bluetooth. Not mics, ear pieces, headsets or anything else that would allow hands free use. The voice commands cannot be disabled so anytime you say words like (or that it translates to) "select", "delete", "bold", "email", etc (there are many more voice commands) it takes those actions on the text. This results in replaced or deleted text, odd formatting or partial transcriptions being emailed. Nuance customer service did not see these shortcomings as anything noteworthy. I was told to hold the phone up to my face and avoid using any words that were also voice commands. Transcription is good, pricing is good, but the software is not ready for primetime.


Horrible app, billing, service outweigh great dictation  youdie  1 star

Best voice to text translation. But problem with app, billing and customer support are so so bad it is not worth it in the end. Routinely will not let you login - says you have no license. Cannot solve it on phone. Have to go to the web. We you login you sometimes get "an unknown error has occurred". Customer support can take 30 minutes. A pity Nuance spent zero time on customer experience. The core tech is great. Would pay $16 a month if you could use it. Giving up.

Horrible app and service  John Matthew MAC  1 star

I have had a horrible experience with this app and with Nuance support. I purchased a $150 annual subscription. But, each time I log in, the app says my subscription has expired. I have called Nuance on more than one occasion to get this straightened out. Each time, I have gotten bounced around from Technical Support and Customer Service. After literally spending a couple of hours trying to get this resolved, the problem persists and I have been unable to get a refund. Purchasing this app has resulted in a huge waste of money and time.

With a little practice it becomes better than dictated. Use short cuts and becomes really powerful. If you dictate or type stuff- try it-- we worth price!
