TerrificV - Great App
It’s a great app. 4 stars due to some issues I listed below.
I’ve been using the app for about a month and it was extremely helpful. I love the fact you can organize your recordings in iCloud, name them and organize them into hierarchical folder structure that the app understands and displays. I love it’s watch companion that even has a complication you can add to the watch face to start recording on the fly.
Here are a few needed improvements that would make it probably the best app available for voice recording:
1. Accuracy of transcriptions isn’t best. A lot of misidentified words or skipped words even in a perfectly clear and clean voice recordings. Not sure if this is Apple issue or the apps issue. But perhaps the app could use a choice of voice transcription APIs from multiple providers to be able to get the best quality of transcriptions. I’d be willing to pay for an in-app upgrade if needed.
2. It’s annoying that the app stops transcription process of the app is not running in a foreground. I know that in the past it was impossible do have background processes in iOS. But I believe iOS does now provide a way for background processing.
3. It would be great if the app shortcut to record or to open the app would be available in the iOS Control Center. Just like the VoiceMemo or other buttons and similar to the Apple Watch complication.
Lawrenceperez7676 - Awesome app.
I absolutely like this app. I'm using it right now to write this review. It seems silly, but it's totally awesome to have constant dictation working , Recording in the background even. I can just keep talking and talking, and when I'm done recording I can get a transcription of what I said. This is the only apple I've seen that doesn't offer a subscription just to use their transcription features, or doesn't continue to ask you to purchase even more other software, or have annoying ads on it. Just a one time purchase, and you're good to go. I absolutely like the Apple Watch version of this app. I can record anytime I want to , From my watch, easily and quickly. I also like that the i WhatsApp is accessible with voiceover, as well as the iPhone app. I am blind, and having this app around to transcribe long pieces of what I want to see without stopping, without interrupting i am currently thinking or what I want to see, it's totally awesome. This is totally the best app out there on the App Store. It uses Apple's speech recognition functionality. Which means you have to say punctuation marks etc. when you're dictating. Just as if you were dictating on a text box with your iPhone.
FireFlux360 - Blind 360
Not going to mince words here-but I do not regret purchasing this app at all! I’m blind as a bat but I was able to figure this app out after I downloaded it a few days ago. It met my expectations. It’s really cool & thoughtful of the app developers to make sure that it’s fully supported by voiceover. Too bad not many developers Think about people like me who have a disability. It’s user-friendly and like I said well worth the price. Just have a few suggestions-In future updates maybe it would be possible to make categories for the recordings. Create folders within folders. Append to existing recordings even if some time has passed before you decide to add to the recording. Add more export options. Make more import options. Lastly, add more to the languages selection. I’m Filipino and sometimes I have to dictate or talk to someone or record a conversation in Filipino but it’s not supported. Otherwise it’s a great app and you guys did a good job. Kudos and a big thumbs up! Hope you’ll hear my suggestions out and consider them. Have a great day!😃😉
Kickthefog - Pretty darn good, wish it had a few things.
This app is easy to use and the results are spot on 99.9% of the time. I've had no issue with speech to text translation. It's really accurate. I have only two complaints. The first is that you have to do the recording and transcription in the app itself. I think the greatest feature would be if I were to open my email app or other app and then have a way to invoke the functionality of just press record inside another app. The way it works now, is that you have to use the app and then copy the paste and text into the app that you want to put it into.
It works very well though and I like it a lot. I will use it often. I am also using it right now to write this review.
I also wish they had a desktop windows version of this. I would use it in the same manner. To type all my emails and other documents using just press record.
The other thing I like about it is the fact that it will record forever. A lot of voice dictation apps like the built-in windows 10 one, will stop listening to you after a certain time. Or if you mute the microphone and unmute the microphone a couple of times it will freeze up or stop working. At least, that is what happens to me on multiple windows 10 pc’s for me for years now.
Smart burro - Great but more organization options missing
Overall great app. I do wish there were more options for organizing recordings other than just in folders by date. I would like to keep separate folders for personal and work with the ability to have nested folders for each or tags. For instance, saving a recording regarding Client A could be saved in work>client a>date or project. Or it could be saved in my Work folder and be tagged “client a” with additional tags as needed. Using tags you could also flag recordings that you need to follow up on with additional information or recordings that you need to share with others once the transcription is checked, etc. Organizing recordings by date may be helpful for some, but personally I don’t want to have my personal recordings intermingled with work related recordings.
Flipped - Fantastic app
I've been using 'Just Press Record' for a few years on both an iphone and the Mac for transcription and it has been such an incredibly useful app to me. Aside from the solid transcription accuracy I really appreciate the extra attention to detail the developer put into the design. It's easily the most pleasant UI experience that I've seen in a recording/transcription app. And the transcription works really well if you voice your words clearly and at a slightly slower pace than you might normally talk. I used to use Dragon Dictate and this is in roughly the same ballpark of accuracy.
The only suggestion I have is give the user the option to choose Apple's on-device transcription API (vs. sending the audio to apples servers).
But I’ve been extremely happy with Just Press Record. And I’ll continue to use it daily. It's a bargain.
Brianjames5 - Reliable & Sturdy App
I am writing this review because when I was updating this app, I was kindly asked to review it. This app doesn’t have popups or interruptions. I podcast & record on the go. I was having some issues with the stock recording app on my iPhone. I have recorded segments over an hour in length using Just Press Record. With the other stock app on my iPhone, I lost multiple recordings when pausing & recording, pausing & recording over the course of the day.
I have never had that happen with Just Press Record. I have never lost a recording & use it very regularly. Daily. Very reliable.
Intuitive & easy to navigate. Different recording qualities & microphone options with different phones. This app is one of the best I have used & I rely on it for my podcast. Very happy with my purchase!
Cspain11 - Almost love it!
I want to love this app but I have just a couple issues. Some of my recordings I can’t change the name, no matter how hard I press on the default name they give the recording. And Speaking of how they name the waves, it’s confusing, they should at least use the current date and time I do not understand their numerical system. Also recording from the watch is cool, but that too, you got to hit the record button a lot sometimes, just to get it to record. And sometimes it takes a while for the recordings to go from the watch to the app. Transcription isn’t the best, it only transcribes the first part of the recording even with the setting set to record all... I wish they would let you tag the waves, that would be cool.
Jim Artis - A perfect app for me and with the BEST customer support.
I installed this all 18 days ago and found it functions as described and meets my expectations, with one exception. That is when recording with AirPods transcription hangs, with an endless spinner.
I reported this to the developer and received a next-day response. After looking into my report, the support person concluded I had reported a bug and that they would look into getting it fixed. That commitment was made the following day, 09/25.
Fourteen days later, 10/09, version 3.3.1 was released which fixed the problem I reported. Recordings that had hung were transcribed as well as new AirPod recordings. I am pleased and overall, I think the response was excellent.
In addition, the next day, 10/10, I received a follow-up email from the customer service representative who responded to me before informing me of the release and the thought that my reported problem had been addressed.
I am pleased to say I answered in the affirmative and expressed my appreciation and congratulated them for “Great work.”
The Open Planet Team is clearly deserving of this 5-Star rating. Special thank you to Diane of that team. Best!
Mistergizmo - If you have an Apple Watch, get this App!
I get my best ideas about solving the problems of the world while I’m driving or out walking. When driving, I need to record a thought with as little distraction as possible. When walking, I just want to press one button on my watch and start talking. And when I’m having a conversation with someone, I sometimes need to remember a fact they’re telling me, without pulling out a notebook and pen. This app satisfies those needs perfectly.
Other apps let you control directionality, noise reduction, etc. and are much better for lectures and meetings. In fact, I use one of them. So I hope Just Press Record doesn’t try to add bells and whistles to compete with them. Its simplicity is its strength.
Patti.Harada - I’m dumb struck
Oh wait, I’m gob smacked. Although I have not tested this in the most trying conditions namely driving with car motor and road noise and the air conditioner on, it’s going to be better than the experience I’m having working with my iPhone recording software.
My first test came out exactly as I spoke it. And! This is the big deal: it will transcribe what you said right there on your iPhone or iPad. I was ready to buy special transcription software or hardware. I am so glad that there were enough reviews on this app for me to check it out. It turns out I’ve had it on my iPhone and my iPad for a long time. I never eve opened it or tried it.
I’ll be back after I tried this in the car with the air conditioner on.
Grown1223 - best app you’ll buy this year
If you're like the rest of us and find yourself losing an idea or thought that you forgot to write down, a song name you can’t remember, another to-do item that slips your mind, etc...look no further. Especially if you have an Apple Watch, this is the quickest and most intuitive way to solve a multitude of problems and even get ahead on your work on the go with the dictation feature. Transcription from voice to text is ridiculously accurate, even in a Starbucks or someplace with background noise. I am currently studying for the bar exam, and it is incalculable how much time this app has saved me in the process. Finally an app purchase you won’t regret.
Maxwell6769 - Missing 1 or 2 Things
First off, I love this app and it’s quick start features. I don’t completely regret the purchase. But for 5$ I kinda wish for more. Perhaps level readings/control and the ability to rename the recordings quicker. It seems I have to tap the file after, then tap the generic name it’s given to edit. Not very intuitive. The stock voice memo app asks right away for a name, which I find annoying and obtrusive. Just looking for something in between that is easy and quick.
Otherwise, I like that it puts them in a folder by day and automatically uploads them to iCloud for access on other devices.
Flcounsel - Program excellent, But could use a critical improvement…
It would be fantastic if an option could be added to automatically dump transcriptions and recordings right into an apple note. To make it actually visible on my Mac computer. And easily viewable on my devices. Reading files in the app is clunky. Having to expand them to read them becomes a nuisance. Viewing on a Mac computer is all but impossible. Totally useless as a practical matter. Another good improvement would be to fix the option to send both a transcript and a recording somewhere. That is not working properly. I just get the recording another text.
Rickydumplings - Unreliable
Using this app with my Watch Series 6 has caused me to lose a number of recordings so far. Recordings would be labeled as being 5 hours long, only for me to check in the iCloud sync folder on my iPad that it is only 2 seconds long. Transcription sometimes works, but only for people within very close proximity, and even then it does not work a lot of the time. Transcription also requires you to leave the device on the app and wait, which meant that for long periods of time I could not use my phone. Will give it credit for the times it worked, as the Apple Watch is much more convenient than phone, but at least Voice Memos will not disappear my recordings while offering the same compatibility with watch. The one time I tried customer support they responded frustratingly late.
Stephenaweiss - So simple yet accurate
Just Press Record has such a simple interface, works so cleanly, that at times I have a hard time believing it’s actually running. It’s a great app. The most useful function for me is it can import an audio recording made by another recording device and Just Press Record will transcribe it, accurately. Other applications that do this are very expensive. Of course the clarity of your voice and how you pace your dictation are crucial. I dictate punctuation. After 30 years using dictation, starting with Dragon, I have learned to keep my voice slow, steady, and flat without inflections. That yields more accurate results.
Remy L - Great with Apple Watch
This is a great, simple, easy to use app the with the latest dark mode update looks fantastic on the iPhone X, and also has great integration with the Apple Watch for simple recordings. Just hit the button and it automatically starts recording even in the background. It really needs a few things though.
1. A better tutorial explaining how to do things like rename files. 2 of the 3 features I was going to ask for are already features! And I just now found them as I’m writing this after weeks of using the app.
2. It would be nice if there was an option in the app to “just press record” like on the watch where opening the app goes into a 3-5 second countdown timer and then starts recording (so it’s easy to cancel if you don’t want to) this should be an option though.
3. My third was going to be about playing back recordings on the watch, which unless this update just added that I didn’t see you could do. This app just got even better AS I’m writing this review. Awesome.
Corporatedude - Not perfect, but perfect for my needs.
I work from home and go into plenty of meetings and personally like to capture meeting minutes for my reference and to document later action items. This app has allowed me to just press record and refer to the voice to text transcriptions for items I may have missed.
While the transcription is not perfect, this app is great considering that it does not have any subscription model and you just have to pay $4.99 for its entirety versus other apps I’ve researched in the AppStore.
Do yourself a favor and stop looking at other apps and get this instead.
C Coop - Best app for getting ideas saved quickly
It’s true that Just Press Record does not have the best transcription, but that’s because it’s free. There’s a reason most transcription services charge: doing it well is hard, and often requires human beings.
I never bought this program to transcribe for me, I bought it to save my ideas quickly and on-the-go, and this does exactly that, all while looking beautiful at the same time. Oh, and they don’t charge for iPad and iPhone separately, they just give you the great app on the other when you buy one.
Don’t listen to the haters, this app is hot, and worth every penny!
Hockeydad10x52 - Reliable APP for years!
I’ve been using this APP for a few years now. I have never had any problems with it… so I’m confounded by the problems reported on some of the bad reviews. It’s been reliable and convenient. By biggest problem is remembering to use it at times. They keep improving it. My “wish list” would include the ability to record phone conversations; but I know the laws are different in every state. (I think it’s up to individuals to determined the lawfulness, and get consent from the other party, rather than shut down all recording)
KumaDR - Get this!
I love this app! As a writer, it has literally saved my wrists from RSI and carpel tunnel injuries. There’s no limit to how many transcriptions it can do. Other apps charge per minute, but this app is ONLY a one-time fee! Pay once and you’re done. Just how it should be.
I love how it syncs using iCloud. And if you get the Mac desktop app, then all of your audio and text can be accessed there. That makes it so easy.
I usually use my Apple Watch to record while on the go. Then either use my iPad or iPhone to do the transcriptions. With a simple copy and paste the text is now in whatever project I’m working on.
Srtgs - Much better than iPhone Voice memo app
I did a test and recorded a 60 second recording from my Apple Watch using Just Press Record while recording simultaneously on my iPhone 8 with the built in Voice Memo app. Of course the recordings from JPR on the Watch transfer to the phone. I listened to both from my phone and JPR trounces the iPhone voice memo app in sound quality and clarity. Hard to believe that the quality of a recording from a WATCH! is better than the phone, but it is and it’s not even close.
JPR is particularly useful and functional for the watch. Very pleased. Highly recommend.
KevinPurcell - Love it but wish file organization was different.
I originally gave Just Press Record a 5 star review but lowered to 4.
First it's a great simple easy app that does what I need so buy it. You'll be glad you did. I've tried most of the more popular recording apps with Apple Watch integration and this one is best.
I just wish I could choose to have all the files sync to iCloud and store them in one folder. They all go into folders by day. I use this to record mileage and then at the end of the month I go through them and create a spreadsheet to turn in to my work. It would make my life so much easier if the files were in one folder.
BAd DeTeCtIvE - Great App, need ability to edit transcripts
Great for dictating notes and reminders. Of course the transcribing isn’t always perfect, nor do I expect it to be. My issue is that there is no way to edit the transcription in the app. Meaning you need to share the transcript with another app (the developer suggested Notes) in order to edit any words that were not correctly transcribed.
The developer said that this feature may be added in the future, although they have no immediate plans to do so.
Not a deal breaker for me, just extremely annoying. Just think it’s something people interested in this app should know.
Avclub - I’m happy I bought it
I was on the fence on getting this one... went back and forth for awhile. Once I finally pulled the trigger, I am glad I did. It does just what it says it will. It allows recording on the Apple Watch without being tethered to the phone. This is a huge win, and extremely usable for capturing thoughts on the go.
I’m an electronic musician, and it’s nice to be able to sample audio from my wrist for using later.
I also love that it syncs to iCloud Drive. From a desktop Mac, you can easily browse the file structure and clear files out or move them. Great purchase!
TBBucsfan - Use it everyday!
Absolutely the best app for recording anything, highly recommend. I’m in the service industry and a lot of the time driving so when I receive a call over bluetooth in my truck, I can just hit the complication on my watch and get the details of where I’m going next without having to pullover and write it down...
One hick-up I’ve found, which is not a big deal at all is when I delete a recording on my watch it deletes the recording but I still have a file for that date showing in iCloud in files app even though it’s empty.
Mysticoftheordinary - Transcription is useless
I bought this app with the hope that I could record and transcribe interviews. It’s fine for recording, but the transcriptions are worthless. The accuracy is awful, especially if there’s any background noise at all. The accuracy is not even close. It misses entire phrases. It doesn’t matter how clear the recording is or how articulate the speaker. There’s no punctuation unless you dictate it. As an example, I dictated this review in a quiet room on an iPad Pro. This is the transcription:
I bought the seven that I can record and transcribe interviews it's fine for recording the transcriptions of worthless the she is awful special yeah. She is not even close Mrs. entire phrases it doesn't through the recording using her or how articulate the speaker is no punctuation as example I dictated this iPad Pro this is the transcription
Katie Davis - GREAT for writers!
I LOVE this app! I've been doing NaNoWriMo and using it (hands free!) when I have to be in the car. Those are the days I get way over my 1,667 words done. One of the best things is that I can hesitate while trying to think of what I want to say next, and it doesn't shut off––a VERY important feature for someone trying to write orally.
I had an issue with spacing after punctuation and almost instantly received a personalized email - they’ve been very responsive. I don’t tend to spend money on apps, but this one was well worth every penny for my needs.
LBIP - Great and useful
This is a great app especially when using with an Apple watch. In a meeting press the record button on your phone and the meeting is recorded sent to your phone and transcribed. I gave it a 4* only because it keeps launching by accident on my watch. I would like to see an option to confirm start recording and possible haptic feedback to remind you there is a recording going on. Should be optional because not all will agree with me. One other feature i like you can begin recording from your watch then return to your selected watch face with no indication you are recording.
Mazurbrain - Great for transcribing dreams with Apple Watch
Just create a watch face with one big button for Just Press Record. Switch to that watch face when going to sleep and when you wake up...voila! Record that dream that’ll you’ll probably never go back and read. I import my transcribed dreams into Day One app. That way I can search keywords and see how many times I dreamt of something. One thing I realized is I don’t have to rush my speaking when using the app like you do with a Siri command. Long pauses in one’s speaking doesn’t make it automatically stop or anything.
Beez808 - Original AppleWatch support dropped 😥
I LOVED this app. The ability to make recodings/dictations with my (original) AppleWatch was GREAT and I used it daily. This app is at the top of so many “Best Apps” lists... It was incredibly convenient to make recordings when my phone wasn’t near by. With the latest update, support for the original Watch was dropped. This really disappointed me. I have not been using the app since. 😕 It is nearly impossible to roll-back and I’m just not going to put the time into it. I understand this probably has to do with a new SDK or whatever... but the functionality of the previous version with the original Watch was perfect. I don’t plan to upgrade my watch until Winter at the earliest. I’m sure JPR is great with newer watches... I’ll just have to find another solution.
SteveMcAnulla - Beautiful simplicity, but...
I would really like to see the ability to create folders and organize recordings other then by date. To have everything in its own folder by day is handy until you can get around to organizing the way you want. Unfortunately you have to go into iCloud if you want to create custom folders. Seems like something that should be able to be handled within the app itself. Please consider this, if that was in place I would give this app five stars for sure! Everything else about it is absolutely wonderful. I love the Apple Watch app, it works very well.
CraigKC - Settings to Make Stopping Recording More Difficult
The overall app design is fantastic. It does everything it says it does from the iPhone and Apple Watch. The one thing that would make it KILLER to me, would to make it optionally more difficult to stop recording.
For example, options to require hitting stop 2-3 times to prevent accidental stopping. Even more innovative, require a passcode to stop recording. That could make this app perfect for recording interactions with unwanted people, maybe an abusive ex, maybe interactions with police. They then couldn’t easily stop the recording.
Great work and great app though!
SchwartzReports - Very convenient but notifications on watch erase the recording
My title says it all. When it works it's great, but if you get a text or something during a recording on the watch, the whole recording just disappears. The only way to make it usable during long recordings is to first put the watch in DND mode. Why can't the developer either make it so that notifications don't stop a recording, or at the very least save the recording up to that point?
I'd also love a stealth mode - I don't always want to draw attention to the fact that I'm recording a meeting for instance. Maybe just a dark screen, or better yet, record in the background once I press the complication!
UPDATE: Thanks for the response. I'm looking forward to the update! Until then, would it be possible to auto save a backup every 30 seconds or minute, just in case a notification comes in? Then we won't lose the ENTIRE recording. Thanks for your help. -Matt
Murderizer9000 - GET RID OF THE GRADIENTS
Maybe this is a nitpick, maybe I’m being obsessive about it, but gradients are a bad look for this app. Especially the one that appears when you turn on the dark mode, just over the record button and input device display. It makes the app look dated by several years.
That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate the app’s dark mode. I love dark modes, that and the speech transcription were why I bought the app in the first place. But I think the app’s UI design could be a lot more successful if the gradients were replaced with flattened UI elements, as is the usual iOS aesthetic.
Ejose - Fast, accurate voice transcriptions
This is a quick way to record a voice memo and automatically have it transcribed. Works great. I’ve set up a Siri shortcut to “take a note”, which launches Just Press Record and automatically starts recording.
Works great on the Apple Watch too. I’ve added the complication, so it’s a single press to start recording.
Would love to see an option to automatically send me an email transcript of every recording. That would make it very nice for taking notes while driving.
Willem Andree - Excellent recording app for my Apple Watch
No complaints here, this program works and it works almost flawlessly when I need it. Easy to use too, just press the little red button on my Apple Watch and I can record the entire conversation privately right on my Apple Watch.
The translation feature works about the same as other apps out there for me anyway, some words it gets, others it doesn’t, I think it’s my Dutch accent that’s hard to understand. 😀
Sucker534 - Wasn't what I needed
I purchased this hoping it would help transcribe some of my meetings. The challenges are that it mixes coversations when multiple people are talking and the transcribe function takes a very long time. Several times I left the app open in the backgroud but accidentially swiped the app close, out of habit of always closing open apps to preserve battery life. Once closed, I had to begin the transcription over again. It did capture some of the previous transcripition, but it always failed to pick up where it left off or even start fresh. I then had to erase the partial transcription and start over. I liked that I could copy the text and paste into an email or note.
Prof. RBlack - Excellent
It’s a hidden gem. I first bought it before it offered transcription. Now it’s one of my MUST HAVEs. This simple app has solved one of my biggest recording problems. The app works extremely well on my Apple Watch and iPhone. Its simple and does exactly what it advertises. The playback volume from the watch is very low (probably due to the smaller speakers on the watch), but listen to the same recording that’s automatically saved to iPhone from iCloud and the quality is awesome and loud. I like this a lot. I highly recommend this app.
Snoop_z - Great on watch
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
NatalieBarnes - Most Valuable App
I have to say this app has been a game changer in my life. Thanks to the ability to use it via my watch, I was able to legally record & document interactions that otherwise would have been denied in court. These recordings are literally the difference between life & death. Also the fact that it’s free is also the whole reason I was able to use it bc during that time I was unemployed.
Recordings are crystal clear & accurate.
Goldn6 - Great quality
I bought this app so I could record a conversation with someone that has a tendency to “gaslight” people. There were going to be no witnesses to our conversation so I thought I should record it. I turned on the app ( it’s great because the lights go out and there is no blinking icon to signal someone that you are recording them) put my phone in the outside pocket of my purse with the bottom end (microphone) pointed up. It recorded perfectly! No background noises, just voices! Amazing quality!! Easy to transcribe!
Jhuke - Very solid
It works as or better than expected. We had one issue on the iPad Pro where I was switching between apps while doing a recording and the audio was garbled. I suspect this has more to do with iOS’s handling of the mic. If you want to record, dedicate a device - phone and watch are perfectly viable. We lost some great data as a result and it would be great if they would add an alert that the app needs to be in the foreground to do its thing. A painful lesson but I am not going to fault them for this.
Topohero - Great app, just missing...
... 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.
Ebeck1352 - Great app but hard to rename files
I really love this app. I use it daily and it does what I need it to. My biggest complaint is that it is very hard for me to click precisely on the file name to rename a recording. I usually have to try several times which is very annoying. I have small fingers and have not had this problem with other apps. The transcriptions are not the best either but they do help to make the recordings searchable by keywords. I also know not to expect miracles from transcriptions (yet) but the renaming thing I feel should be fixed.
FKTHISNICKNAME - Great App but Requires More
This all is pretty awesome for recording and being able to document said incidents or notes but it should ultimately be able to record telephone conversations and Face Time as well. To provide more secure information when needed. Such as conversations with insurance companies, Automobiles, Telemarketers, and various other people. Maybe you can take this said information and upgrade your product for us so we don’t have to allow some one else to provide us with these services.
Espionage Studio - Fantastic Recording App for Apple Watch
This is a well designed and good looking recording app. If I had a compliant it would be that sometimes my copious amount of wristfat would wrap around the minuscule watch screen and press record while at work and I would glance down, brow glistening only to see that the app had been hearing everything that was said for the past hour (everything). Despite this minor annoyance which arguably is the fault of my genetic makeup and an obsession with bean burritos the app is great!
Jdiishfci - Watch app needs work
This app would be perfect if only there was a way to pause a recording on the watch app. You can only start and stop a new recording on the watch app, so I have to start a new recording each time even if I just need to pause 😩Without a feature like that, the app is useless to me and I wasted $5 and continue to search for the perfect watch recording app 😞
Update: I stand corrected! Just swipe down to pause 😊
Deamon2020 - Disappointing
As a journalist, transcriptions are important. Messing up the exact phrasing can have serious consequences. So when I found this transcription software I thought great! Over the last week I have not been able to use 1 transcription nor any part of a transcription I made with the app. It wouldn’t transcribe entire sentences, would creat incoherent phrases and basically was completely unusable. If I wanted to have to do the transcription myself I would have just used voice memos. This was a complete waste of money. Fortunately it was only $5. And that is the most positive thing I think I can honestly say.
Danoz73 - Reliable, Thoughtful, please make renaming easier!
This app has become my go to recording app. My primary reason for using is the clear foldering and saving to the cloud. Additionally, the renaming of files is less buggy than Apple's app, BUT I'd love it if renaming a file could be done easily, for instance in the home screen with a long press and an option menu pop-up that highlighted the whole name so I could quickly rename from the home view. Thanks for all your work!

Poombi p. - Near perfect
Would be perfect if it had two things:
1. If it didn’t show the pink banner at the top of the screen when recording and the app is minimized. This is an impediment if you want to be stealthy.
2. If it showed, for the length of the recording, a plot of the audio’s loudness. That way if I am making a long recording i can simply skip to the audio spikes, which would signal there is talking etc. instead of having to listen through the entirety - even when nothing is being said or happening.
IMZanzibaar - Reliable, easy to use audio recorder
I’ve been using “Just Press Record” for about as year, and it has been exactly what I need for recording ideas for my book as I go on my morning walk, and also for recording talks by guest speakers at Rotary. It works seamlessly and intuitively with Siri on my iPhone, and the transcription of text and transfer to my PC is easy and straightforward. The developers have obviously thought carefully about how this app can be used in real life situations.
Xarllion - Great recording, lacklustre transcribing
First of all, this app can record audio so well. I was surprised how clear the audio was from a recording from the Apple Watch.
However the transcribe feature has been a bit disappointing. For my recent recording of a 50 minute meeting, the transcribe feature completed and spat out about 5 words. I can’t run the feature again to see if it can fix it and the words don’t even form a proper sentence that might have been from the meeting.
I’ll keep using the app for the recording feature but what actually sold me was the transcribe feature. I really hope it gets better...
Noora Ro - On the Apple Watch
For some reason the app does not work on the Apple Watch anymore and it does not transfer the recordings to the iPhone. A couple of days ago it just stopped working altogether on the I watch! I’ve lost many of my recordings and I’m very upset about it because they were my inspirations for a story that I was writing. This was the main app that I was using and I was very happy with it. I am not sure what happened!
Also it would be great if the folders can be renamed by the user rather than just being organized by dates.
Mattiebrownoz - Needs one important feature for me to use this.
What is of needs is a edit or continuation feature on a recording. Even on the regular iPhone record app I am able to edit and continue the recording. Currently by using this app I can press pause, But once I stop and save I have to then start a new recording. If this iPad that future I would love it because then I would be able to make many notes on Essentially one recording and then have it transcribed and export into a single file. Until then I’ve actually just spent $10 on an app I’m not using.
Fmlinarek - Great but missing one thing
I love this app. I record a lot of my voice overs for presentations and then send them to myself to attach to the slides or videos. Love the update and choice of formats!
Please build in the ability to select multiple recordings and to be able to send them in one go, or even selecting an entire folder to send.
IshanRai - Improvements
As a musician, this app is an invaluable tool! Really appreciate the intuitive compilations because it’s makes my process very streamlined. Play back on the phone is pretty seamless, but trying to listen to recordings on the watch isn’t viable bc the recording stops as soon as the screen turns off. This is my only complaint. Thanks developers!
2880cjk - Provides security so I can feel safe
Just Press Record Application. Available for Mac also iPhone and iPad plus Apple Watch. Great for security purposes having a recording device on your wrist especially after having been in a domestic violence altercation with my father. If something happens again I will have the option to record him so he can not deny what he did to me.
Lethal123 - Very good - needs one improvement
This is a great app and works as advertised. The only problem is with the Watch complication. The complication only requires a single touch to start the recording. As a result of this I am getting numerous, unnecessary and annoying recordings throughout the day. It’s extremely easy to unintentionally or unknowingly touch the complication, which then results in a recording. This often happens 5 or 6 times a day.
Operationally, it would work better if you tapped once on the complication to open the app and then a second tap to actually start the recording.
For anyone who is a fan of starting the recording immediately that you touch the complication, there should be an option for this in the settings menu. Then you have a choice.
Otherwise a good app.
T3x0z - Email Recording
The recording function works well. The transcription against my Australian accent was completely useless. I did have some humour value but was so far from what was said to be easier to sit and type it from scratch. Then I thought I would email the recordings .... big mistake ..... after it had sent 12 of the same email I hard rebooted my phone. The entire phones data was corrupted and 4 hours later after restoring from backup I got my phone back... so not real happy.
Sienks - Great App
This makes my life so much easier! I record all of my ideas into my Apple Watch which syncs with my phone. Both the iOS and watch apps are minimalistic and to the point.
Is it possible to get a lock feature on the iPhone app so it prompts you for a passcode or fingerprint when opening the app to keep recordings private?
RobertMarkBram - Transcription is not good
Just tried to record and transcribe a thirty second piece on the train using The mic from PowerBeats3, the iPhone X, the Apple Watch 2.
- PowerBeats was picking up a conversation from the guy across from me, not me. Transcription not possible.
- iPhone X picked up mostly me but was way too quiet. Transcription not possible.
- Apple Watch 2 made what sounded like a very good recording of me, but the transcription was so off that it was completely unusable.
This evening I tried with the iPhone mic at home in a quiet space and the recording was much better but the transcription was not good. Still too many errors; the UI doesn't allow you update the text or correct the transcription process in any way. It doesn't even add any punctuation by itself.
Avacck - absolutely love it!!
Highly recommend!! I need an App that can transcribe records for my study needs. This app is exactly what I want. On top of that, this App is awesome because it works SO well on my Apple Watch. I won’t miss any important moment anymore. Thank you. I can’t express my appreciation enough!
Dolphin96a - Very happy
The voice recording (audio file) is amazingly clear. While the transcribe function isn’t 100% accurate it is as good as Siri - if there are two similar words or it’s a bit faint it might get it wrong but I would estimate 90-95% of my recent meetings have been transcribed correctly.
Stevie63748585959 - Great app!
I’ve used this to record conversations that I’ve needed later for legal reasons. Or I’ve thought if ever stopped by the police. Or called into a managers office. I’ve recorded all sorts of things on my watch without people’s knowledge. Yes that might land me in hot water, but I’d rather have the proof and be in trouble than have no proof at all.
Reecious - This is so close to being perfect
I love this app and use it every day, the only problem is that I do prefer to use my AirPods to record. As I take my Apple Watch out with me without my phone I can’t use the AirPods to record directly to the Apple Watch. Apart from that this app is absolutely insane!
Cccccathymmmmak - A good recorder
I’m looking for secret recorder for conversation. It’s great that I can press one shortkey on Apple Watch to record but if the red spot not poping up on the screen will make things easier. It’s too obvious.
Maybe you can make the small icon shortkey change the color or blinking when it’s recording ?
Chass1988 - Chass Moller-Nielsen
I was really loving this app. But now I’m having problems with it in regards to syncing from my watch to my iPhone. I never know what files are going to come over and what files are not going to. I’ve tried every troubleshooting method. I am tempted to delete the app and go back to using The built in voice memos App on the iPhone. Unless I can get into contact with the developers. Very disappointing. I’ve just lost a lot of recordings of me riding my dirt bike sessions.
Cam Knox - Absolute trash for the price
For $8 I was expecting the app to be at least be semi literate with the transcriptions.
It spits one one continuous line of text which has no punctuation or capitalising at all and has to be edited before it can even be readable let alone make sense. Random words and completely inaccurate transcription is an utter waste of time. I’m genuinely angry I paid money for this.
Would be easier to record with the normal iPhone voice recorder and manual transcribe.
Me.mark - Very good!!
Dude who doesn’t like iCloud only recordings... they’ve moved on and it can go to iPhone if desired. Forget that. I am at the pub with blaring music in background and it was a clean recording and able to dictate my audio. This is my new best friend when I set up on my Apple Watch.
Dr bangs - Nice app, but needs to be more reliable.
If I do a recording with the iPhone stereo microphones in able, I seem to get completely random results as to whether I get a mono or stereo recording. This may be some kind of adverse interaction with VoiceOver, not easy to check that! Still, the apps reliability needs to improve a bit! Nice idea though!
JanusAus - Touchy on watch
Works well and I also have it on my watch modular face. However in that mode you can easily trigger an unwanted record. So an option for an extra press record would be good.
Bevan33 - App will not appear on Watch S2
No matter how many times I restart my watch or iPhone 7 Plus or delete the app on the iPhone I can’t get the app to appear on the watch.
Eve-googletrips - Transcibing does not work at all
Although the recordings are ok quality, the transcribing function only worked once and then stopped working. I have emailed about this issue but did not receive a reply, that’s a sign of poor customer service..This is the first time I have paid for an app because it looked like it was worth it, but do expect it to deliver what it promises and if not at least a reply to my email!
The Lovelies - Don’t bother transcribing
I concur with other comments, the record feature is convenient and super easy, but the transcription feature is nowhere near where needs to be in order to be usable let alone useful.
I like the ease and convenience of the sync between the watchOS and iOS versions though.
WookaY - Just Record
This App is Amazing. The playback of the recording is so clear on my Apple Watch 4 using AirPods or on the iPhone. So handy to have when you want to record a message or note quickly.
DKailen - No precision
If this is AI learning then I’m disappointed and terrified as it comes back with text that is nonsensical. Inserting words that are often bizarre. If I was to edit out all these mistakes it would be quicker to just simply write it out in the first place. I just paid for something that is effectively useless in an functional sense other than creating silly interpretations for fun. I am not amused though.
APenNameAndThatA - Unbelievable
Unbelievably good. I say something, and it pops up, already transcribed, ready to be emailed or messaged.
Someone complained did not transcribe a meeting. I suggest they take the file and see if Dragon Dictate, the leader in the field, can do any better. I bet it can’t.
Well implemented on the (S2) watch. Three taps and I’m recording. A red dot above the clock tells me if I am accidentally recording.
Well worth AU$8. Well worth its equivalent in App Store Dollars: $800.
Timofey K - Updated watch app is brilliant!
On Apple Watch Series 3 the app starts instantly from a complication, immediately begins recording and continues recoding in the background!
TripleA from Aus - My favorite app
The one app I tell everyone about. Has changed my life. Have it on phone, watch and iPad.
Rotten tea - Useful but...
It's good at it's core - recording. But it's terrible at transcripts! Just get a normal recording app if you only care about recording.
Bir..... - Lets see
good voice recorder and editor. its also amazing at transcriptions
RichardSimmons - Hopeless
I tried to use this app to transcribe. The result was nonsense random words - not even close. Embarrassingly bad.
Storing and sharing meeting audio is a pain, and the design of the app makes it easy to accidentally stop. You the can’t start recording again- you need to start a separate file.
Jamesk811 - Amazing app functionality! Just needs complications support for Apple Watch
This is an amazing app and so handy for me where I need to record audio at a moments notice. While it loads up really quick I still believe it needs complications support so that I can access the app quicker. The app runs really smooth on Apple Watch and instantly uploads to iCloud Drive! Amazing! Will get 5 stars once they add complications support and iron out some known bugs.
GlenBrace - Great app
Great app easy to use make taking notes on the road a piece of cake.
Apazin - Absolutely brilliant
Great quality recordings
Famma - Fantastic App!
Best and simplest app out there. It just works so well.
Divagirl75 - Record
This would be good for me as I’m always recording my neurologist appoints then when get home to listen and too fast to listen to write down on paper
Jason15863582 - Not worth it
The transcription feature is worse then just having auto dictation on your phone
Sgk62aus - No support for 1st generation Apple Watch
The reason I purchased the app has disappeared. Don’t be lazy find a way to support the people who bought your app early on. Support 1st gen apple watches.
Austese - Complication not on Apple Watch
I bought this app specifically for use on my watch, but it has not appeared on my watch. Why not?
Scam breaker - Not working on apple watch 5
Won’t open. Save your money.
Jonahge - Rubbish
Doesn’t work, waste of money! Don’t buy.
John 5425 - Transcribe doesn't work
Transcribe feature does NOT work for meetings. Forget it.
Derec Ethan - It works but the display on the watch stays on at all time while recording
I would give you 5 starts if you could simply add 'sleep mode' or 'display off' function while recording on the watch.
Toomanyphotos - Best app of 2017
This is what I have been looking for for ages - something which quickly takes audio file notes and then transcribes them automatically so I can action, send or post to appropriate place. This makes going in back to back meetings where the only breaks involve driving possible! Fantastic.
Ezybuildinspect - Great app
Have used this app a few times from my watch while driving. Absolutely fantastic. Having access to all recordings via iCloud Drive could not be easier. Love the large record button in the watch. No room for error. Great job.
Aussieboby - Works perfectly
Works exactly as described.
Record something and it's available on all your devices by a very quick download shown for your cloud.
I purchased mainly to use quickly with the Apple Watch and it doesn't disappoint.
Jo_here - Productivity accelerated!
Using this app on my Apple Watch has greatly increase my efficiency. Just a tap while doing just about anything means I don't lose ideas, thoughts or inspirations. It even transcribes!
IBloke.v1 - The only native watch sound recorder I could find
All I wanted was a simple stand alone sound recording app for my watch that both recorded and played back on my watch without needing the iPhone.
Simple request right?!
After wasting my time/money trying many sound recording apps, some of which didn't work At All, this was the ONLY stand alone sound recorder I could find.
And it is simple, fast, elegant, and fuss free 👍👍

Ricardo Canada - Great app - one tweak requested
I find this app one of the most useful except for one quirk. To play back a recording from the watch face complication, I have to make a useless recording that I have to discard. Why? Because the app starts auto-recording when I press its watch face icon. I have to stop the recording and then scroll to playback. Just Press Record support explains that I can click the crown, find the JPR icon among all the icons there and click it to open JPR without auto-recording. But that is too clunky. I would rather be able to go directly from the watch face to record or play back. If the developer provides a better solution, I will rate Just Press Record as five stars.
A. Greg Dickson - Stable mature product
I bought this app quite a while back, and subsequently been updated numerous times and is my go to application when I have something very quick to say that I want to transcribe later. Or, I have something much longer to dictate that Siri would tend to interrupt and break the flow of the recording. This app doesn’t interrupt my thought process and flow, transcription later is fairly accurate, likely ranging somewhere between 70 and 90%. Having a quiet background and speaking clearly and slowly into the microphone produces the best result
CBzero - Love it
I love this app. I use it all the time for recording music ideas to recording important detailed information when I can’t write it down. It works awesome with an iPhone for picking up sound. So you can hit record put down your phone, and then start taking apart something and just narrate what you are doing so you can go back and follow what you did step by step. But it can pick up what I say clearly from across the room.
The ability to reorganize and rename files/file names is awesome . I can record and classify what I’m working on into file folders so that I can locate what file I’m looking for in seconds. It backs up to iCloud or google one/drive and is retrievable from all of your devices. This is the one app I must have on my phone at all times and I would be upset if it wasn’t available anymore.
Having said that if they moved to a subscription model like all of these other idiot apps out there - that would be the line where I would download all of my info and delete the app.
So to any of you ‘greedy app developing subscription pirate money grabbing monkeys’ follow this developers example...because if your app is not on my phone it’s because I read the ultimate swear in your description....the ‘S’ word. I even hate the word description because it sounds like subscription....that’s how much I hate subscriptions. I call people ‘subscriptions’ when I really don’t like them....’you’re nothing but a subscription’ and they recoil in fear and hurt from such insults being uttered. Well, this app will not cause that undue stress to users. I recommend it 100% - and it also comes with the seal of endorsement of the people’s anti-subscription movement.....power to the people.
YellowLabel - Too many “Unknown Transcription Error” msgs
I’m very disappointed app would not record unless right beside the source. Even when it did record beside the source (a radio) when later transcribing app would say “unknown transcription error” every time, so only a couple of sentences transcribed before error message and it stopped working. Will delete app today. Wasted money!
Sedz1 - Apple Watch Sync Doesn’t work!
I bought this app because of the feature allowing you to make recordings on your Apple Watch. The problem is, the recordings don’t sync to my iPhone. Accordingly, the app is useless to me. A waste of money.
John in Canada2 - Still a great app - but please, bring back the old icon!
These folks obviously care about building a great app, as evidenced by the constant improvements. Giving 5 stars, as this latest update continues to work well & look great. However, I implore you, please bring back the old microphone icon! Too many complications on my Watch are just circles; I don't know recognize your app anymore! Please bring it back! Thnks
Fastone720 - Works as long as you don’t update it.
If you purchasing this app and it works just be happy and don’t update it. I purchased it to use on my Apple Watch but after the last IOS update I mistakenly updated the app. After that it was no longer available to use on the watch. Apparently the app will work if both watch and iPhone are on the latest software versions. This is a fairly common issue and a quick email from the developer would have solved everything
How are all my names taken - basic items needs
need to save a recording instead of losing it when a notification or anything comes through.
need to be able to search the transcriptions like lead to believe.
need to be able to listen to all recording through instead of having to click on individual files,...even if just one day at a time.
Jonchalk - Very useful and easy to use
Over the years, I have tried several recorders. Biggest problem with the other recorders I have tried is that the recording suddenly stops and it did not save.
Just Press Record does as the name implies. Press one button and it just records. Press stop and it saves. Works well with the Apple Watch. The recording goes directly to my iPhone. Please note, that you need to go into the app settings to enable saving to phone.
The recordings are very good if you use the high bit-rate. Even at medium, the audio is quite good. If you wear hearing aids, you have an extra option to set the microphone source to either the iPhone’s mic, the watch, or your own hearing aids. Using the hearing aids as the input source is great as you will not get the “shuffling” sounds when the phone is in a pocket, purse, bag, or even on a table when it is moved around.
Romans B - So useful
You would think that just using the stock app to record voice memos would be good enough, but it's not. The automatic transcription with the ability to jump to any point in the audio by tapping the word is invaluable. Also, the Apple Watch feature of starting a recording as soon as the app is launched it's very convenient.
TorchLite34 - Fantastic app
My work is on-the-go and this app has been just what I need to document as I go. Accuracy seems quite good and it has been a real time saver. Highly recommend!
Cryptocontinuum - Great application
Works as advertised, no hiccups, thanks to the devs for an app that is very useful.
Imageflash - Stop working
Stop working on my Apple Watch 2-3 years ago.
Just start to work again with the new version 2022-02
Aconite - Works Well ... suggestion ...
App works well and Apple Watch app very handy. I like having the complication on my watch face, but I find that I accidentally start recordings by accident. My suggestion is to have the Apple Watch complication be a press and hold for a second to start recording.
Nix-C-Dev - Words but doesn’t let me download on my computer
This app appears to work properly for it’s purpose, however when I purchased it, I was under the impression I’d get access on all devices, this doesn’t seem to actually be the case. Is this a bug or just scummy corporate practice?
SammyVan - Absolutely the best dictation, and transcription app
I have probably told over 200 people about this app. Face-to-face. That’s how much I love this.
The basics of this app is that you can record any of your thoughts quickly. And then transcribes it in the background, not requiring the cloud to do so. It will do it locally on your phone, so your privacy is respected. You can then use that text in whatever word processor, or email that you want.
This app, also saves the original audio. It doesn’t get rid of it, like in almost every other dictation program. Even the native dictation feature of Siri, does not save the original audio. The advantage of this, is that if there is a dictation mistake, you can listen and correct it yourself. Also, it is helpful if you want to record a business meeting, or negotiations, of course informing those other people, and then if there’s any disagreement, you can easily share the original audio.
In short, this app is amazing, and you have to get it.
MEEDO A - Consistently Reliable
I’ve been using this for 2y since I bought my Series 4, and the native voice note app for WatchOS wasn’t introduced up until recently. There is no option to record from a Bluetooth mic on the native voice note app, like from my Beats headphones, which boggles my mind that Apple didn’t think of that. These guys with this app clearly DID think of that and to me it’s a make or break deal. Which is why I keep using it, user friendly, reliable and although I rarely use the transcribe option, it’s a nice bonus. Thanks to the team behind this!
Foxbones16 - Needs batch delete
It’s a pain and annoying that I can’t delete multiple recordings at once
Wolfacet - Very Pleased!!!
I use this regularly with my blue yeti microphone and have good results every time. I am very pleased!
AMKMR76 - Great App
Nothing to complain.
Adam Spruijt - Don’t bother.
The quality of the dictation is so bad you’d be better off transcribing manually. Skip this app.
Bud Kombi - Surprisingly accurate
Johnne25 - Was liking but no longer trust it
Recorded a long session but after it didn’t have cloud connection do it decided to just remove the recording. Why wouldn’t it put locally instead. No long trust it will work successfully.
Ringo Ringo - Great app but missing a critical feature
FYI: watchOS 6 now supports Voice Memos on Apple Watch with full iCloud and Complication support.
PLAYBACK ON APPLE WATCH IS BROKEN, PLEASE FIX IT
[Update] This issue still has not been addressed (watchOS 5&6) as of September 20, 2019.
Noticed that this app has not been updated in a while so presuming this could be due to Apple adding Voice Memos in watchOS 6?
There is one critical feature that is missing since its inception. This is my typical use-case for this app:
- Record something quickly when I do not have the time to create a note or a reminder
- When I have time, I process the recordings (e.g., create Reminders, Notes, etc.)
- Therefore, I need to be reminded if there are any recordings that I need to process
- I have to create a Reminder just to remind my self to process the recordings!
THIS APP NEEDS A BADGE SHOWING THE NUMBER OF RECORDINGS PRESENT
Also, I don't really see the purpose of the "Watch" tab. I use the app on my Apple Watch; what would be useful is to be able to delete the recordings on my Watch using the iPhone app. I also use the iCloud sync, and right now, I need to manually delete old recordings on my watch.
Hope these make sense; if not, please let me know. Thanks!
ShuaiBrother - Good for recording calls
You can just put your watch next to your iPhone on speaker and let it pick up the conversation for recording. For legal reasons, I would let the other person know they are being recorded though...
Mr.vomitify - Stopped working when I needed it most
The alarm on my Apple Watch went off while recording a very important piece of info and recording ended without saving. Unreliable.
Toulou - Bought it and it doesn’t work anymore on my Watch
Perfect app until last upgrade:
My Apple Watch (first gen) isn’t supported anymore...
The developers should have kept a version for early users... and buyers :(
Now I have to find a competitor/alternate app to use with my Watch...
Spyridus - Comes with Watch Complication
Just Press Record was the only recording app I could find that actually advertised it comes with Complication for your watch face. I recently had an incident at work where a fellow employee threatened me so management has asked me if my watch has the ability to record quickly, then I found this. Thank you so much for having this important feature.
Just be careful if you setup a complication on your watch face as I am constantly hitting it and recording hours worth without even knowing.
Winningattitude - Excellent.
This is a very polished app that works exactly as advertised, I would recommend you dismiss some of the reviews that you see here if you’re thinking about getting this.
Sync works unbelievably well, my audio recordings on my Apple Watch instantly appeared in the app on my phone, it was actually one of the better sync experiences I’ve had.
And translating it into text is brilliant, I was shocked when I accidentally discovered that feature as I did not read the intro.
Naturally you’re going to have to go in and edit a little bit because all of our voices are different and no dictation service is going to get 100% accurate. This is very normal.
This is really a very functional and effective solution for recording, especially on the go, and it looks very nice, they did a beautiful job with the user interface.
Do not even remotely hesitate buying this and using it.
Gourami Kakhadze - Transcription takes forever and is of very poor quality
Transcription takes forever and is of very poor quality.
Lioni64 - Perfect!
Does everything it’s so pose to do perfectly!
Thank you for this awesome app.
Copa Cetic - Super Easy, Works Well
Just like I said, it’s super easy to use, and it works well. Works great on the Watch, too. One-button recording on my wrist - what could be cooler?
Frank dug - Well worth the price!
Instant stealth recording on my Apple Watch! I use it to record my young kids when they laugh and play or tell me their dreams in the morning! I’ll listen to these memories in many years!
I did not find how to edit and trim audio files.
Diggitydang11 - One big flaw
It would get a 5-star if it didn't stop recording (on the Apple Watch) when you got a phone call (even if you decline the call).
Idbell - Best recorder already - I’d pay for upgrades
Best app of its kind! Wish it could be set auto on/off with a timer. If I could set it to record with a start and end time, I’d happily pay for that upgrade. Too many times I’ve forgotten to turn it on or shut it off.
Al s Prince Albert - Simply Fantastic!
For the series 4 you are able to place this app on the face. Unbelievable mic pickup. The fact it can store direct to cloud and creates its own folder is outstanding. I haven’t tried nor will I use the transcript function, so no comment. The app installs on all devices. Truly a bargain - Thanks !
Me.real - False advertising
Purchase this app to use on my Apple Watch and I can not see the app anywhere on my watch . I am running the latest watch OS and IOS 12
AutisticShill - Great app transcribes well
The app transcribes very good and I don’t always speak eloquently.
It picked up my FIL’s voice quite well and he has a thick accent.
The Apple Watch app needs an option to avoid accidental recording. Otherwise
UNDER8ED - Useless for recording calls
Unable to record any phone calls even if using speakerphone mode. This is stupid beyond belief.
Blerbyq - Simple yet effective.
Update 30 July.
I use this app with an Apple Watch complication. Often times the watch appears to be recording (not triggered by me) but when I go to the phone there are no recordings thankfully.
At other times, if I tap the complication, everything works as expected.
Very nice app. Does exactly as you would expect. Push the button and it records. It's also nice that it uploads it to the cloud for all of your devices.
Amaryas - Can not find the app on Apple Watch 3
I installed the app yesterday on my iPhone X
But I cant see the app on Apple Watch 3
I hope there is a solution for this ,otherwise the app is useless for me
Micopicorico - Nice app easy to use
I really like JPR for recording and reviewing work meetings. Two feature requests: 1. Controls (play, pause, speed, etc) available on lock screen. 2. Ability to record phone calls for conference call meetings.
Tquitoi - Très pratique
Cette application nous a permis de prouver une erreur médicale grâce aux conversations enregistrées à l’aide de la montre apple. Un énorme merci aux développeurs.
Ajjarkhad - Transcribe feature not working!!!
Hi, i tried transcribe option many times but it’s not working. I recorded a sample lecture and tried to transcribe it but it doesn’t work. Could you please let me know if transcribe feature works as mentioned in the app features. Also the reason I purchased this app is for the transcribe feature.
Kfamjam - Works Great Maybe
Bought this app and tested it a few times. Recorded to my watch and sent to the cloud no prob. Transcribing worked as well. Day 2 sat down to a recorded statement with my insurance adjuster and decided to make my own recording with my watch. Verified several times during the interview that it was recording. When I tried to review the recording later, it did not exist. Nothing was saved. The App failed when I really needed it. This app cannot be trusted.
Loving.Winter - Not for lectures.
I got this primarily for transcribing my lectures. Which was a bad idea. The device refuses to transcribe anything over 30min. What it will transcribe of my lectures before an error message pops up (even after going to the FAQ and following their recommendations to not have that error) makes absolutely no sense. I do agree that it is quite a simple and easy app. I think it’s overpriced for a voice recorder alone. Not to mention the desktop version, which is bought separate of course (which I assumed would have more power to transcribe a descent size lecture) cannot even transcribe anything. Also, while I understand that It is supposed to be ‘simple’ I’m sure that more features, like the ability to cut down or split a recording, can be implemented nicely. The two stars are for perfectly working on simple memos and that is all.
Bossaer - Great app
Bought the app off a whim, but can see it’s a great way to keep track of random thoughts and todo lists!
Pigjake - Sweet
Very handy app. Keep up the good work developers!!
LukeChairwalker - Love at first sight !!
This app is unbeatable when you need to take a quick note, be it your next dentist appointment (July 12, 2017 10am) or to get the voice of a contact giving you an address and a phone number. You think of something while falling asleep or in the bathroom: JUST PRESS RECORD !! It’s even faster with my watch !! If my phone is out of reach, the app works remotely on my watch (and will transfert the recordings on my phone when it comes in reach). It works flawlessly with iCloud (it offers 5G of free storage). At least, an app that does something simple, does it well and nothing more (I don’t need an editing studio on my phone/watch). At less than 5$, this app is a steal (so I bought the Mac app to support the developer). Would love to have a badge indicating the number of recordings.
MatthewSantoro - Doesn't work
Completely locks up unless you enable iCloud Drive. Literally cannot use it unless you upload all voice messages to the cloud.
