If you need it to export audio files like I did it charges you for a simple feature. Not worth it.

It is somewhat tricky to learn how to use, and the manual could be written and organized better, but that might just be me. I wanted a simple audio recording app for my tablet so that I won’t miss a class I can’t be present for. I think this should work well. It records for a long time and is clear enough. I appreciate that it’s free!
Love it
by yuhboyjay on 2019/09/12 00:30
It’s a good app if you want to record lectures! You can record and be able to take a picture of the board WHILE IT STILL RECORDS. So it’s perfect for colleges students

by Ledthuore on 2019/05/30 17:41
I've been using this app on my old IPad for a long time , to record any song idea that comes to me before I get a chance to write it down. It works perfectly and helps me to keep track of my creative projects. I use it to record my choir rehearsal too so I can listen and practice my part even when I'm at home, and plays it back crystal clear. I would definitely Recommend this app. Thanks to the creator/creators of this app for sharing one of your excellent work with the world! May you be granted many more inspirations from the universe to create more amazing apps like this one.

Thanks for a great app - I’m finally free from a PC-based system that sometimes brought me back to the office on weekends for dictating. Turns out, my transcriptionist says voice quality from the iPhone sound files is better than from my old dictaphone!

No different from the default mic app on IOS
by AFC LA on 2019/01/13 23:49
It doesn’t hold your place. Sometimes it just randomly skips back to the beginning - v frustrating! Especially when it turns to the lock screen, you re-open your phone and it will skip back. 15 second back or forth would be a useful function... Expandable timeline for longer clips would also be useful... Point markers for longer clips anyone - yes please! Larger timeline so it’s easier to click on etc etc... Not difficult to implement I’m sure, but not available.
Ok
by No pop up guy on 2018/12/28 15:31
Other than persistent pop ups asking for a review it serves my needs quite well. I hope now the pop ups will cease!
High Quality. Pesky Dialogs.
by EnochWasNot on 2018/12/26 03:34
Several reviewers have mentioned The fact that the app has a pop-up that frequently asks the user to rate the app. I think that’s why the overall rating for the app is as low as it is. If I haven’t already found another app, I will purchase this one when this is fixed.

Great app with quality audio & cool features!!
by Dr_PhilGood2016 on 2018/09/18 20:12
Ignore the whiners, they are app illiterate as there is a simple feature to fast forward or rewind as far as you like. Just press and hold while watching the time code.. piece of cake! Great app for students, business folks and individual need to capture audio on the fly. Nice quality audio, much nicer than other apps. Love that it defaults to MP3 format and that you can PAUSE & continue RECORDING as many times as you like. Another awesome feature is the ability to send the recordings... obvious sound recordings can be large files so not practical by text msg or emails. This app has solved that issue, as it gives you the option to split up the audio files automatically for you and send them out. Great file / subject line naming, easy to view, I dentist and sort into proper order. Highly recommend this app!! Worth the price.

Nothing special
by Chuck12540 on 2018/08/24 22:32
I was looking for a hands free recorder for my phone. You know, open with my Bluetooth, initiate recording using Bluetooth buttons, stop recording using Bluetooth buttons. While driving or walking or whatever. This app advertises itself as hands free. There is nothing hands free about this app, other than it eliminates picking up a pencil and paper to record notes. LIKE EVERY OTHER VOICE RECORDER EVER MADE.
Great app
by Innovatorguy on 2018/07/23 22:50
I can record using the Dictaphone app and then transfer them to another program where I can edit them. Good sound and easy to use.
Great!
by Ninja Barbie on 2018/07/19 17:51
This works perfectly for what I needed and the files don't take up huge chunks of memory. I had to pay a few bucks to get what I wanted but I am happy with the result.
Works good
by Gec678 on 2018/07/13 00:22
Free and not too hard to operate. Records seminars accurately on the “normal” setting with very reasonable iPhone battery drain.
Can’t forward
by shae the hair diva on 2018/04/23 00:30
I like this app but would like to share my dictations for when my husband is not in church with me. Please make this feature easier.
Annoying
by giggleatafuneral on 2018/04/22 04:13
This dictaphone is ok in terms of sound quality but is really annoying in that I can’t just scroll back a few seconds while listening to a recording. They should at least have -15 seconds playback. I end up popping back minutes behind, it’s especially bad on the small iPhone that I use, and I have to rehear the annoying voice a professor I interviewed, over and over. Also, the dictaphone app is continuously heckling me about giving it a rating, so I finally did
Too slow to boot
by Catwalan on 2018/04/18 02:09
Useless unless you have time to record. If you need to record immediately, this App is not for you.
Super Simple App!

Buyer BEWARE
by ForeverDoterra0627 on 2018/02/09 18:13
It is not user friendly. It’s not easy enough to upload to a Social Media or Podcast Account. Your asked to purchase inside NO ADS then not able to transfer what YOU dictate for the reason you purchased the app! Another rip off!
“Free” app is unusable nonsense
by Karavshin on 2017/11/28 01:44
Tried dictaphone. Figured I’d upgrade it as required. Made a thirty minute dictation. When I went to listen to it, I realIzed there isn’t even a pause button or scroll control. All you can do is play or stop-and-fully-rewind. Give me a break, their free version isn’t even skeletal, it’s emaciated. Basically you’ve taken my dictation and held it hostage unless I pay you a 1.99 so I can download it to something useful. Real garbage. And not at all a reasonable implementation of free-with-paid-Add-ons. Deleted.

Love the quality of recording on this! So frustrated that there is no rewind or fast forward with this app! I use this for my college classes so I can listen to them again. There are times when I miss something and want to rewind, but I have to start at the beginning. Very frustrating!

I have found this to be a very valuable resource. It allows me to record hours of lectures and in the comfort of my own home and at my own pace (very important ), play back all that was said. This enables me to capture all that I may have missed in the classroom or corporate meeting .

Does what it's supposed to but some frustrations on returning to main menu and deleting files. May just be me but it feels unintuitive.
Serviceable and works with Dragon
by JC Hay on 2017/06/08 01:34
I don't ask for much out of a Dictaphone app, it needs to record a high-quality wave file, and it needs to integrate with Dragon naturally speaking. This does both, so I have no problem with it. It is annoying, though, how much it asks you to rate it...

NOT A DICTATION APP
by tiger_strike345 on 2017/03/09 02:09
This app is just a voice recorder. It does nothing more than just record your voice like the pre-installed Voice Memos app on your iPhone. DO NOT GET THIS APP, it just wastes space on your phone (unless you enjoy wasting storage). This app does do a good job at copying Voice Memos, I do have to give it that.

I downloaded and purchased the email option so that I could convert my voice to text, email it to myself to add to books or other papers I would be working on. There is NO conversion such as they claim. I'm not happy with spending my money to get something that was promised to only find out that it's not!

by WWXXYYZZ1234 on 2016/12/23 17:52
This app does a pretty good job using the iPhone, but I was hoping for an app where I could record using the microphone on my Apple watch. The watch only controls the app on the phone, and the phone needs to be close enough to do the recording.

by Lilacflower on 2016/11/22 23:19
Love it! Simple functions yet great recording ... what I like the most is that it keeps playing the recording while the screen is off! I tried other voice apps, it seems the recording goes off when the screen is off, so I had to constantly switch my phone back on, it's not effective listening after all! This app doesn't have this problem !
Decent for a free app; wish start/stop could be controlled by headphones/asks to rate too frequently
by Whydoineedanickname11235 on 2016/11/22 12:00
It would be handy tool be able to pause and restart the recording using the headphones controller. It gets annoying that it asks you to rate the app so frequently when you've just started using it. I probably would have given it now stars but haven't had the chance to use it enough yet and have to keep clicking remind me later every time I open it, and sometimes more.
I loved

by Dunedance on 2016/10/11 21:43
I subscribe to audio files that can't download directly to my iphone. The newest iteration of itunes has complicated the process of getting these files from desktop to iphone itunes. Turns out it's easy to get them to Dictaphone using airdrop. Easy playback. Easy delete. May not be the main intent of Dictaphone, but I love how much simpler it has made my life.
Works great!

I've used this app about 10 times over a number of months. I recorded some music I played myself, and the sound is decent. It maybe doesn't have loads of bells and whistles, but it is pretty simple to use if you don't need anything too fancy. It is not complicated to use at all.

No different from the default mic app on IOS
by AFC LA on 2019/01/13 23:49
It doesn’t hold your place. Sometimes it just randomly skips back to the beginning - v frustrating! Especially when it turns to the lock screen, you re-open your phone and it will skip back. 15 second back or forth would be a useful function... Expandable timeline for longer clips would also be useful... Point markers for longer clips anyone - yes please! Larger timeline so it’s easier to click on etc etc... Not difficult to implement I’m sure, but not available.

“Free” app is unusable nonsense
by Karavshin on 2017/11/28 01:44
Tried dictaphone. Figured I’d upgrade it as required. Made a thirty minute dictation. When I went to listen to it, I realIzed there isn’t even a pause button or scroll control. All you can do is play or stop-and-fully-rewind. Give me a break, their free version isn’t even skeletal, it’s emaciated. Basically you’ve taken my dictation and held it hostage unless I pay you a 1.99 so I can download it to something useful. Real garbage. And not at all a reasonable implementation of free-with-paid-Add-ons. Deleted.

Update-tried updating, but a pop up error cones up saying-"error domain=live services error domain code=5, "the operation couldn't be completed". (Live services live domain error code=5). User info-0x16d8c0d0 (message=http error 413 code=request failed)...hopefully this helps. Basically the small recordings works like a few seconds, but the main one I'm having a tuff time is about an hour long.

Great app but crashes
by paniolo on 2014/10/11 15:55
My requirements are that the recorder have folders or categories that can be selected prior to recording. Another requirement is that it has to have good export capabilities. I use the app for when I am training my horses to record notes after each training session. Notes go into the folder for a specific horse. Dictaphone has those capabilities and I have been using it for several months. However, it has started to crash any time I select a different folder. I deleted it from my iPhone 5S. Reinstalled it. And it still does the same thing. I have nine voice recording apps and this one would be the best of the bunch were it not for the crashes. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to have to use an alternative recording app to continue my work until the crashes have been fixed.
I love this app!
by Ledthuore on 2019/05/30 17:41
I've been using this app on my old IPad for a long time , to record any song idea that comes to me before I get a chance to write it down. It works perfectly and helps me to keep track of my creative projects. I use it to record my choir rehearsal too so I can listen and practice my part even when I'm at home, and plays it back crystal clear. I would definitely Recommend this app. Thanks to the creator/creators of this app for sharing one of your excellent work with the world! May you be granted many more inspirations from the universe to create more amazing apps like this one.
Not perfect, but does what it does rather well.
by lunarmuser on 2015/08/09 05:11
I'm a novice about the tech behind digital audio recording, but my experience with using the app has been good. The option to change recording quality is very useful for those of us stuck on 16Gb phones. The app does look a but dated, however, and I have lost a file or two (among dozens) during recording, for reasons I am not sure about (I believe it doesn't like being interrupted by phone calls and other notifications). The free version also has rather distracting ads (which I always end up clicking on without wanting to) so premium is probably worth it to avoid the hassle. Sad that this is now the only way developers think they can generate income, but that's another question. Otherwise, I am favorably disposed to the app, and would therefore recommend it to anyone who is looking to do better than the native voice memo app.

It is somewhat tricky to learn how to use, and the manual could be written and organized better, but that might just be me. I wanted a simple audio recording app for my tablet so that I won’t miss a class I can’t be present for. I think this should work well. It records for a long time and is clear enough. I appreciate that it’s free!

Great app with quality audio & cool features!!
by Dr_PhilGood2016 on 2018/09/18 20:12
Ignore the whiners, they are app illiterate as there is a simple feature to fast forward or rewind as far as you like. Just press and hold while watching the time code.. piece of cake! Great app for students, business folks and individual need to capture audio on the fly. Nice quality audio, much nicer than other apps. Love that it defaults to MP3 format and that you can PAUSE & continue RECORDING as many times as you like. Another awesome feature is the ability to send the recordings... obvious sound recordings can be large files so not practical by text msg or emails. This app has solved that issue, as it gives you the option to split up the audio files automatically for you and send them out. Great file / subject line naming, easy to view, I dentist and sort into proper order. Highly recommend this app!! Worth the price.

Nothing special
by Chuck12540 on 2018/08/24 22:32
I was looking for a hands free recorder for my phone. You know, open with my Bluetooth, initiate recording using Bluetooth buttons, stop recording using Bluetooth buttons. While driving or walking or whatever. This app advertises itself as hands free. There is nothing hands free about this app, other than it eliminates picking up a pencil and paper to record notes. LIKE EVERY OTHER VOICE RECORDER EVER MADE.

by giggleatafuneral on 2018/04/22 04:13
This dictaphone is ok in terms of sound quality but is really annoying in that I can’t just scroll back a few seconds while listening to a recording. They should at least have -15 seconds playback. I end up popping back minutes behind, it’s especially bad on the small iPhone that I use, and I have to rehear the annoying voice a professor I interviewed, over and over. Also, the dictaphone app is continuously heckling me about giving it a rating, so I finally did

I don't ask for much out of a Dictaphone app, it needs to record a high-quality wave file, and it needs to integrate with Dragon naturally speaking. This does both, so I have no problem with it. It is annoying, though, how much it asks you to rate it...

NOT A DICTATION APP
by tiger_strike345 on 2017/03/09 02:09
This app is just a voice recorder. It does nothing more than just record your voice like the pre-installed Voice Memos app on your iPhone. DO NOT GET THIS APP, it just wastes space on your phone (unless you enjoy wasting storage). This app does do a good job at copying Voice Memos, I do have to give it that.
Good app

Won't convert to text!
by Author Peggy G on 2017/01/23 18:54
I downloaded and purchased the email option so that I could convert my voice to text, email it to myself to add to books or other papers I would be working on. There is NO conversion such as they claim. I'm not happy with spending my money to get something that was promised to only find out that it's not!

I'm using this for my class, I can hear professor's voice clearly. So helpful.
I like the app but wish I could create bookmarks.

Would like to be able to create book marks. I don't like getting all the requests for reviews.
Pretty good app
by WWXXYYZZ1234 on 2016/12/23 17:52
This app does a pretty good job using the iPhone, but I was hoping for an app where I could record using the microphone on my Apple watch. The watch only controls the app on the phone, and the phone needs to be close enough to do the recording.
Great app!

To Developers of program
by Aclassymda on 2016/12/01 01:18
Very happy to find that the app will continue to run in the back round when I'm in another program doing something else. Just need to learn how the volume works for best result and sound.
Works how I need it too

Love the way it's easy to send to Dropbox FTP etc
Great app
by Lilacflower on 2016/11/22 23:19
Love it! Simple functions yet great recording ... what I like the most is that it keeps playing the recording while the screen is off! I tried other voice apps, it seems the recording goes off when the screen is off, so I had to constantly switch my phone back on, it's not effective listening after all! This app doesn't have this problem !
Decent for a free app; wish start/stop could be controlled by headphones/asks to rate too frequently
by Whydoineedanickname11235 on 2016/11/22 12:00
It would be handy tool be able to pause and restart the recording using the headphones controller. It gets annoying that it asks you to rate the app so frequently when you've just started using it. I probably would have given it now stars but haven't had the chance to use it enough yet and have to keep clicking remind me later every time I open it, and sometimes more.
I loved

Functional
by Caryallendecker on 2016/10/22 21:54
It's easy to use and functions as it should. I use it to take down any random notes, to-do's or random sparks of inspiration/ideas. Works great.
Convenient unexpected use
by Dunedance on 2016/10/11 21:43
I subscribe to audio files that can't download directly to my iphone. The newest iteration of itunes has complicated the process of getting these files from desktop to iphone itunes. Turns out it's easy to get them to Dictaphone using airdrop. Easy playback. Easy delete. May not be the main intent of Dictaphone, but I love how much simpler it has made my life.
Works great!
by Kkaile on 2016/10/02 23:47

Quick and easy way for me to speak my notes. I am a blogger and constantly come up with ideas for a post or revisions to existing ones. I can quickly open Dictaphone create a note for myself, even while I'm driving. I also use it for business. Speaking reminders and things to put on my to do list. I have found no flaws with this app.

This Seems Pretty Good
by RKPI on 2016/06/19 23:54
I've used this app about 10 times over a number of months. I recorded some music I played myself, and the sound is decent. It maybe doesn't have loads of bells and whistles, but it is pretty simple to use if you don't need anything too fancy. It is not complicated to use at all.

by Peetsmeboo on 2019/09/22 01:37
It is somewhat tricky to learn how to use, and the manual could be written and organized better, but that might just be me. I wanted a simple audio recording app for my tablet so that I won’t miss a class I can’t be present for. I think this should work well. It records for a long time and is clear enough. I appreciate that it’s free!
Annoying
by giggleatafuneral on 2018/04/22 04:13
This dictaphone is ok in terms of sound quality but is really annoying in that I can’t just scroll back a few seconds while listening to a recording. They should at least have -15 seconds playback. I end up popping back minutes behind, it’s especially bad on the small iPhone that I use, and I have to rehear the annoying voice a professor I interviewed, over and over. Also, the dictaphone app is continuously heckling me about giving it a rating, so I finally did
Great Resource and Tool
by T Winston on 2017/07/27 08:19
I have found this to be a very valuable resource. It allows me to record hours of lectures and in the comfort of my own home and at my own pace (very important ), play back all that was said. This enables me to capture all that I may have missed in the classroom or corporate meeting .
Ok
by No pop up guy on 2018/12/28 15:31
Other than persistent pop ups asking for a review it serves my needs quite well. I hope now the pop ups will cease!
Great App
by Hoss, on 2019/05/14 16:47
Thanks for a great app - I’m finally free from a PC-based system that sometimes brought me back to the office on weekends for dictating. Turns out, my transcriptionist says voice quality from the iPhone sound files is better than from my old dictaphone!
High Quality. Pesky Dialogs.
by EnochWasNot on 2018/12/26 03:34
Several reviewers have mentioned The fact that the app has a pop-up that frequently asks the user to rate the app. I think that’s why the overall rating for the app is as low as it is. If I haven’t already found another app, I will purchase this one when this is fixed.
Instant pro is me
by rach the bird girl on 2018/12/05 08:34
It was so easy! Now I record my own songs and storytelling! If not going for pro it will make sentimental gift. Easy to use. Next will try to export or combine or edit tracks. Great fun I also like cove app for easy grooving
Simple to use
by MamaChile on 2017/08/03 14:13
I just started using this app and love it. I do mindful meditation while walking and like to use the dictaphone to record profound thoughts, then listen and document them when I get home.
Great!
by Ninja Barbie on 2018/07/19 17:51
This works perfectly for what I needed and the files don't take up huge chunks of memory. I had to pay a few bucks to get what I wanted but I am happy with the result.
Great app
by Innovatorguy on 2018/07/23 22:50
I can record using the Dictaphone app and then transfer them to another program where I can edit them. Good sound and easy to use.
Ok, but can’t rewind or fast forward
by 21434arses on 2017/10/24 11:04
Love the quality of recording on this! So frustrated that there is no rewind or fast forward with this app! I use this for my college classes so I can listen to them again. There are times when I miss something and want to rewind, but I have to start at the beginning. Very frustrating!
Nothing special
by Chuck12540 on 2018/08/24 22:32
I was looking for a hands free recorder for my phone. You know, open with my Bluetooth, initiate recording using Bluetooth buttons, stop recording using Bluetooth buttons. While driving or walking or whatever. This app advertises itself as hands free. There is nothing hands free about this app, other than it eliminates picking up a pencil and paper to record notes. LIKE EVERY OTHER VOICE RECORDER EVER MADE.

I am very pleased with Dictaphone, I have been able to record talks, and I like being able to type in the title of the talk so I can go back to.
Love it
by yuhboyjay on 2019/09/12 00:30
It’s a good app if you want to record lectures! You can record and be able to take a picture of the board WHILE IT STILL RECORDS. So it’s perfect for colleges students
Great App
by Clarissa2005 on 2018/02/21 17:49
This app is amazing. It’s easy to use and best of all it’s free. It has helped me with my studies. Developers keeps doing what your doing to make this app so good.
No different from the default mic app on IOS
by AFC LA on 2019/01/13 23:49
It doesn’t hold your place. Sometimes it just randomly skips back to the beginning - v frustrating! Especially when it turns to the lock screen, you re-open your phone and it will skip back. 15 second back or forth would be a useful function... Expandable timeline for longer clips would also be useful... Point markers for longer clips anyone - yes please! Larger timeline so it’s easier to click on etc etc... Not difficult to implement I’m sure, but not available.
I like it
by VB Bubbakins on 2018/11/07 22:46
It’s a great little tool to make notes when you need to.
Best Audio App!! Provides great clarity to your voice memos.
by Arunram on 2019/07/29 21:19
The best part about the app is the audio clarity that you get!!
Perfect for me
by Kinda Carmel on 2019/08/19 23:46
Using this to record dreams, and it’s perfect for that, easy to find and review what I’ve recorded.
“Free” app is unusable nonsense
by Karavshin on 2017/11/28 01:44
Tried dictaphone. Figured I’d upgrade it as required. Made a thirty minute dictation. When I went to listen to it, I realIzed there isn’t even a pause button or scroll control. All you can do is play or stop-and-fully-rewind. Give me a break, their free version isn’t even skeletal, it’s emaciated. Basically you’ve taken my dictation and held it hostage unless I pay you a 1.99 so I can download it to something useful. Real garbage. And not at all a reasonable implementation of free-with-paid-Add-ons. Deleted.
Works great
by Dixox Bull on 2019/08/21 04:03
Got it to keep notes on the fly to review later
Buyer BEWARE
by ForeverDoterra0627 on 2018/02/09 18:13
It is not user friendly. It’s not easy enough to upload to a Social Media or Podcast Account. Your asked to purchase inside NO ADS then not able to transfer what YOU dictate for the reason you purchased the app! Another rip off!
Works good
by Gec678 on 2018/07/13 00:22
Free and not too hard to operate. Records seminars accurately on the “normal” setting with very reasonable iPhone battery drain.
Easy to use

Great for recording anything and everything! It is invaluable!
It doesn't let you retrieve a recording :(
by Usurian on 2017/09/27 04:01
It works okay as a free app, but I can believe it doesn't have a way to retrieve an accidentally deleted recording.
Great App

Too slow to boot
by Catwalan on 2018/04/18 02:09
Useless unless you have time to record. If you need to record immediately, this App is not for you.

by Prayer31 on 2014/09/23 01:16
Has good sound, I like the layout of the app, but I realize when I try to send a big file, (like 140mb), it freezes and shuts down. Please fix. Update-tried updating, but a pop up error cones up saying-"error domain=live services error domain code=5, "the operation couldn't be completed". (Live services live domain error code=5). User info-0x16d8c0d0 (message=http error 413 code=request failed)...hopefully this helps. Basically the small recordings works like a few seconds, but the main one I'm having a tuff time is about an hour long.
Garbage
by Fwtoddfw on 2017/11/09 06:18
What else to say
Great app but crashes
by paniolo on 2014/10/11 15:55
My requirements are that the recorder have folders or categories that can be selected prior to recording. Another requirement is that it has to have good export capabilities. I use the app for when I am training my horses to record notes after each training session. Notes go into the folder for a specific horse. Dictaphone has those capabilities and I have been using it for several months. However, it has started to crash any time I select a different folder. I deleted it from my iPhone 5S. Reinstalled it. And it still does the same thing. I have nine voice recording apps and this one would be the best of the bunch were it not for the crashes. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to have to use an alternative recording app to continue my work until the crashes have been fixed.
I love this app!
by Ledthuore on 2019/05/30 17:41
I've been using this app on my old IPad for a long time , to record any song idea that comes to me before I get a chance to write it down. It works perfectly and helps me to keep track of my creative projects. I use it to record my choir rehearsal too so I can listen and practice my part even when I'm at home, and plays it back crystal clear. I would definitely Recommend this app. Thanks to the creator/creators of this app for sharing one of your excellent work with the world! May you be granted many more inspirations from the universe to create more amazing apps like this one.
Not perfect, but does what it does rather well.
by lunarmuser on 2015/08/09 05:11
I'm a novice about the tech behind digital audio recording, but my experience with using the app has been good. The option to change recording quality is very useful for those of us stuck on 16Gb phones. The app does look a but dated, however, and I have lost a file or two (among dozens) during recording, for reasons I am not sure about (I believe it doesn't like being interrupted by phone calls and other notifications). The free version also has rather distracting ads (which I always end up clicking on without wanting to) so premium is probably worth it to avoid the hassle. Sad that this is now the only way developers think they can generate income, but that's another question. Otherwise, I am favorably disposed to the app, and would therefore recommend it to anyone who is looking to do better than the native voice memo app.
