App Reviews

  • Almost perfect

    By jrpg8255
    Much better than Apple’s solution. So far seamless recording a voice memo on my watch, shows up on phone and is transcribed. My only complaint is that it’s very easy to accidentally tap the Apple Watch complication which immediately then begins recording. As a result, I have spent more time deleting accidental recordings than actually making new ones. A setting to be able to change the default to not immediately start recording from the complication would make it perfect for me.
  • Truly a godsend....

    By DrPsych
    This app was made for me — a consultant who regularly likes to take notes that I can then go back to paste into DRAFTS and edit and append or prepend. It works, it’s cheap, and it’s awesome. Just be sure you don’t put “confidential” information out there, as I don’t know where the recordings finally reside. One question for developer. When using JPR on watch only, do the Airpods work as audio input or is it only on the iphone?
  • Highly disappointed

    By pmelgar
    I don’t write many reviews as most apps that I have purchased have been great. This one may have good reviews but don’t let the reviews fool you. Yes it can record a conversation at a decent level. However, the transcribe feature is simply worthless. I have tried using it now about 8 times in different environments. Same result, the transcripts are useless. Buyer beware...
  • Perfect for Apple Watch

    By Bill_Johnson
    Was looking for a simple audio recorder for my new Apple Watch. This one, although a bit pricey IMHO, fits the bill perfectly. Easy to launch, use, playback, auto saves to iPhone (or iCloud) One suggestion: Allow deletion of recording(s) from the watch itself.
  • Very solid

    By jhuke
    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.
  • User experience 👎🏼

    By khashabri
    Not handy at all to share, forward or delete MULTIPLE audios !
  • Great app

    By RPR1000
    Great app. Very useful for recording quick memos. From the Apple Watch.
  • Complication

    By Maui Kid
    Watch complication needs an update. If often starts up and records by itself and can be unresponsive or slow when tapped on the Apple Watch. Transcriptions are often not accurate. Love the app, but needs a few tweaks. 3 stars for now.
  • THE iwatch app

    By PianoPusher
    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

    By Kermit262
    Works as advertised and has seamless integration with the Apple Watch. Worth every penny.
