Seems like a nice app, but when playing back the recorded video it plays just the audio with the first frame of the video as a still frame, and then when the video player progress bar shows that the clip is finished playing, the video starts playing, with no audio. I have tried it several times at several resolutions, and in the regular Android video player as well as through Photos, and they all do the same thing. I purchased this for record from Bluetooth capability. On a Galaxy S7.

Abandoned by the developer. App is very slow / unresponsive to most commands like tapping buttons, starting to record, etc. I get a warning when launching for the first time that this app was built for an earlier Android system than I'm using. Last update was in 2015, - 'looks like this app has been abandoned by the developer. I wish I had noticed this before buying it. Apps that are no longer supported shouldn't cost $$. Too bad! This has the main feature I needed - Bluetooth mic support.

Used to be my go-to app for video, not sure what they did to it. Should've left it alone! Seems unstable now & can't get Locked Focus button to disable, even after reinstall. In other words, will not continuous focus on pt so pretty useless unless you constantly tap to change focus which in many cases isn't feasible. Paid app & no support on this issue? Anyone?
