It's perfect for what it is: 'An easy & free app for recording audio+video.' Whether that's music or video-shorts, it's even got a few editing tools; however, it's not what I'd call an app for "Professionals," per say. Like I said, it's great 4 what it is. I, myself, enjoy creating music w/it. I can basically just open the app & record whatever I need at that moment...voicing an idea, recording a Demo for music, making a video to share. Don't expect much more than that...I do use&enjoy it.

Essentially no options or setting choices. My phone has 3 mics, and it Dolby says it has Dolby sound so there shouldn't be any issues finding them, but there are no options fo selecting what noise cancelling settings are used. There really aren't any settings at all. And you can't use the native android shareing, which is weird. It has to export it. It looks like you might be able to to export as .wav, but you don't seem to have any options other than that and the default m4a.

The sound quality recording is excellent though I will love this app if only the loseless wav or lossy MP3 is saved to the selected folder after recording just like other music recording apps. Other music recording apps automatically saves as MP3 files once recorded. This app doesn't do that because then you have to manually save it or sharing it. If it's saved to the folder, it's saved as a very lossy compressed m4a file, not MP3. That's a broken promise when you record with the option of a loseless wav file. If it's exported as a loseless wav file, you have to either upload to a file sharing or music streaming site or share it.
