One reason I use it is I am going through some legal issues regarding custody. I have custody of my child and my child’s mother has been up to some nonsense (thankfully she is in the wrong and everything is currently going in my favor). I use the app to record phone calls and personal interactions with both my child’s mother and even my own attorney so that if they make a misstep, I have it documented to cover my own ass. I am also the union steward at my work place. I use the app for the same purposes described above. I use it weekly, sometimes daily. I feel that it was worth it because the app functions quickly and accurately with very clear recording, has a lot of control in the phone app in terms of organizations and archival/distribution of recordings, and when used on the watch doesn’t have the obvious appearance of being in use or a ruffling sound from being hidden in a pocket. I also use it to record brainstorm ideas and extemporaneous trains of thought when they occasionally arrive and I don’t want to lose the idea. The ability for iCloud sync is a must and a huge benefit for me. I also enjoy the transcription ability. It’s a nice little side bonus. It also works amazingly well on the phone, but for some reason I still just prefer the standard voice memos app from Apple.

I previously tried using Just Press Record on Apple Watch Series 3, which worked GREAT except the app relied on Bluetooth to sync files to my iPhone so transferring files was super inconsistent and sometimes straight up wouldn't work.

Great app, great complication. Here's the problem. It's slow to get to the result. Record 30 seconds of audio and it takes over a minute for it to complete uploading. Why is this slow? Is it transferring data from the watch to the phone, then to iCloud? Or is it slow because it's transferring the data to iCloud only? Would be nice to not always upload to iCloud and keep on iPhone, if that would help speed things up. Handy, though... recording audio is just a click away. I just don't like the constant uploading to iCloud.

DO NOT BUY THIS APP. After making the mistake of continuing to use this app, I have now lost 5 recordings because it would refuse to transfer over to my iPhone. What the hell. Emailing them is pointless too. Everything they had me do didn't work and then they stopped responding to me. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app lost all the recordings. I've never had such an awful experience with an app in my entire 7 years of owning iOS devices.
