  • Works - but missing key feature

    I recently upgraded to an iPhone X, and unfortunately my wonderful voice recording app that I used almost every day was no longer supported. So I had to wander into the crowded field of recording apps to find something that would suit my needs. The main thing that I had often wished for in my other app was the ability to search audio for a word or a phrase. When I saw that Just Press Record has transcription capability, I perked up. That functionality was a nice solution to my audio search dilemma. I purchased the app and tested it out. First thing: I love the fact that I can sync with iCloud, as that will allow me to play my already-existing recordings through Just Press Record. Additionally, the transcription - though far from perfect - will most likely suffice for the search capability that I need. I was all set to settle into using this app on a daily basis when I realized that it is missing one crucial feature that I used consistently: the ability to append to an existing recording. My previous app handled this brilliantly: I’d just go to a recording, open it up, and hit the Record button. Automatically, whatever I said would be appended to the existing audio. I have been trying to do the same thing in Just Press Record, but to no avail, as pressing the record button under an open file simply starts a new recording. I’ve emailed the developers to determine if there is a way to do this, but so far have not received a response. Other than this flaw, I really like the app (it even has a dark mode, which I love). 3 stars, though, for apparent lack of ability to append. Update: One additional thing that I’ve found (and perhaps it’s been fixed) is that if I have a recording that is somewhat extensive (say, 20 minutes or longer), the transcription of that recording will not be searchable. In other words, I can create a transcription, but when I try to search on any word within it, that recording will not be returned in the list of search results. I’m assuming this is a bug (as opposed to a limitation?). Would be wonderful if this could be resolved.
  • Good, but needs improvements

    This works great with Apple Watch, but needs more options for automatic folders. Don’t do too many recordings in a day, so having folders for each day get cumbersome. Would really prefer an option for folders per month. Also please add option for full date in filenames. Now, having just time as filename gets easily confusing when sharing files or moving them out of folder. Last complaint, when choosing iCloud storage, files gets deleted from iPhone after upload, so needs to be downloaded again to be used later on. Please add an option for keeping file both places.
  • Best and easiest to use app but...

    Compared to all the other voice memo apps out there JPR is a joy to use. I don’t know why *all* the other apps look like a port from a 1990s Windows product but they do. The only problem is unlike these other apps, JPR only supports iCloud Drive as a sync option and nothing else integrates with that, meaning it’s impossible to use services like IFTTT and Zapier to create workflows. So close and yet so far....

    Great app. Works perfectly. Very clear sound. Super easy to use. Someone posted that you could not rename individual recordings but I searched the help menu and found that all you have to do is touch the assigned name and it becomes editable.Easy. I would like to be able to edit the length of a recording. That would be one improvement. I make a recording, the app transcribes it and I can edit any errors in the transcription and then send it to myself and I have a written record! Amazing and easy
  • Great app - bad management files

    Implements old style of removing files. Needs to update to swiplable method (long swipe to delete). Should delete folders automatically if empty. Should be able to delete folders and it's contents.
  • Frustrating experience

    Try getting your recordings out of this app if you recorded directly on your phone... can’t move them to iCloud and when you try to transfer to Google Drive, after the software says it’s done, the file is NOT on Drive. Also, what’s the deal with the file naming convention? Why not date and time? Easy! I’m done using this app.

    The app is ok, not great. I had to trash it because it seems to start up and record by itself and you can’t tell on the watch face that it is running. Also, transscrptions are awful. App needs real work. Not worth the money
  • Doesn't work

    This app can't transcribe accents. I was interviewing someone from Vietnam (in English), and it picked up everything I said but missed large chunks of her dialogue, even though we were equidistant from the microphone and the audio recording is clear.
  • Best App for Recording, Period!

    I have to give another shot-out to Just Record! This app rocks! Especially in combination with my Apple Watch. I set the Just Record app on my home screen of my Apple Watch for immediate access when needed. The designer issues regular updates to keep the app functional. This is a must have for any business person, college student or someone simply needing to log audio notes. Previous Review Below: Firstly, Just Record is simple, elegant and easy to use. I love that all of my recordings can be stored in iCloud. The application is seamless with Apple Watch allowing for hours of recording without sacrificing audio quality. Just Record allows its users the create transcripts of the recording inside of the app! I highly recommend this product to anyone who finds audio recording to be a valid means of retaining information.
