Just Press Record Reviews


THE iwatch app  PianoPusher  5 star

This iwatch app complication simply works and doesn’t require the phone to be near. Loved it I use with an AWS 3 and am impressed with the quality and ability to record from a good distance in the room.


Delighted  Kermit262  5 star

Works as advertised and has seamless integration with the Apple Watch. Worth every penny.


Notes  MNEMONIC6611  5 star

I’m a doctor with a long commute. I use this app to record and transcribe my daily notes. With the cloud it’s probably the most secure for Hipaa standards plus if used with the AirPods almost every word is transcribed perfectly. I would recommend to anyone.


App Freezes  Levertj  2 star

App has started to freeze and will not record when you press the recording button

Better Than I Thought at First  Buckwheat Fujimoto  5 star

UPDATE: OK, my apologies to the developers. The problems I encountered with unresponsiveness were being caused by a cheap-o screen protector on my Apple Watch. Took it off and everything works exactly as it should! I used the app last night to record portions of a city commission meeting; big room, poorly-miked speakers, the whole audio nightmare. Even in that environment, using only my Watch, the recording is crisp and clear. As some others have pointed out, the transcription service is somewhat limited, but that's not an issue for me. So, five big stars and again, an apology to the developers for disparaging this awesome app. Best five bucks I ever spent! I really want to love this app; if it worked as advertised, it would be the perfect solution to my impromptu recording needs (I'm a journalist). Sadly, it doesn't. It seems to work properly on my iPhone X, but on my Watch 4 - which is the reason I bought the app in the first place - it's virtually unusable. You've got to hit the "Record" button dozens of times, at least, to start recording. Sometimes it won't start recording no mater how many times you push the button. The little white "page marker" dots at the bottom don't change when you swipe from the recording screen to the playback screen. Ditto with the "Recents" and "Recording" notations in the upper left-hand corner of the watch screen. It freezes on one or the other and then doesn't change no matter which screen you're on. On the two occasions I managed to get the Watch app to record, the quality was very good, which only makes it all the more frustrating that this thing is so blasted buggy! Another "pro" is that it offers a Watch complication, making it easily assessable when you're in a hurry. The weird thing is, when you start the app via the complication, it begins recording flawlessly. Unfortunately, when you're ready to stop recording, the "Stop" button is very unresponsive. And as to playing your recording back on the watch? Forget it. Sometimes the recording EVENTUALLY appears in the playback window, sometimes not. Sometimes the playback button works, sometimes not. It's very frustrating. I could just return the app for a refund, but it shows so much great potential. I just want it to work! For now I'll keep it installed on my phone and Watch in the hopes the developers will fix these issues. Like I said, I wanna love the app and maybe - a couple iterations down the road - I will. Fingers crossed.


Over time  Geohazzard  5 star

I have been using this application for a while now. I realized that I have many recordings using this application. I’m always the amazed at how well the recording‘s come out.


It sure works.  Snch3j1b  5 star

Records pretty well.


Watch app is crucial  apcclle  5 star

Required purchase if you’re an Apple Watch wearer - I recorded a funk concert with the utmost of ease. Feels like a native app, so happy I purchased this.

A. Non E. Mouse

Transcription of audio file doesn’t work well  A. Non E. Mouse  2 star

Just tired Just Press Record to transcribe a 34 min audio file, and it’s pretty useless. My recording has several terms that would be unfamiliar or infrequently used, but JPR is not transcribing frequently used words correctly. It uses Apple’s speech to text service, so don’t expect anything better than using voice input to apps.


Blind 360  FireFlux360  5 star

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!😃😉
