absolutely unusable, I am so mad that I have so many recordings on this. the app gives an option to click save to Google drive or save to dropbox, but it doesn't actually let me do any of that. when I click save to Google drive it just gives me an error notification that doesn't even let me read the entire thing, and when I click save to Dropbox it acts like I'm saving something to Dropbox but it is nowhere to be found.

Once I was able to save to my external storage and was able to upgrade my phone by so doing. I can no longer do this. I have important recordings that I can no longer access on my phone because the app won't access external storage. By design, I can't put it into internal storage. My recordings aren't lost. I can play through other programs. Just not Parrot!

Update: Good app, although I really didn't like the ads. The devs assured me there are NO ADS in the paid version so I paid the one-time $20 for the "lifetime subscription". It:s an easy to use voice recorder and saves me from buying a, separate device. I haven't used advanced features like their cloud storage, which requires a fee. But the recorder works fine with phone & ext SD card storage.
