if you try to use another app or lock your phone during the recording, it stops recording after a few brief minutes. since the app only has one purpose of recording audio, I don't think you should have to worry about locking your phone or navigating elsewhere, I lost many minutes of my interviews this way. definitely would suggest just using the standard audio recorder that comes with your phone

soem serious bugs. failed to upload, and then deleted the drafts. risky to use for precious memories 😭 logging out and using email/password instead of Google OAuth seemed to work?

1st time user. Recorded 30 min. interview, and it acts like it won't let me upload—like it's stuck on "Please remove all emojis from your interview to continue," but maybe not because now it says it's published. Lol Minus 1 star because of the confusioning warning AND mostly because the *your recording has been saved to your device* (after clicking Save multiple times) is not obvious on that page. It did successfully upload the interview over the phone's internet connection (no wi-fi here).
