Love the desktop app, have used it for many years as my go-to audio editor. This one is great, too, except for the weird file saving design, which involves some dual mechanism of saving to Goldwave's home folder, and/or exporting outside that location. This is a clever yet terrible (i.e. cumbersome and unintuitive) way of storing audio.

Thanks for the feedback. Regrettably the Android file system itself is very inconsistent and restrictive. Saving files to a Home folder was the only reliable option that works on all devices and all versions of Android. We would have preferred to use the same model as the desktop version (it would have been easier), but that was not possible.

This the best editor, and one that many haven't heard of. I have used the desktop for many years for quick edits. I prefer it over the compensations. Goldwave has always been golden, it feels better to use, much better than audacity in my humble opinion. Do a search and see for yourself what people have been saving for. Very few apps have made it this far. Android isn't the best platform, but that's we've got for now. Many apps are having troubles porting over.

I haven't used it long, but it gets 5 stars, it's got exceptional features, with lots of tools. It's monetization is based on save files. 20 free ones then you can pay for more. The have smaller quantities but 1,000 is 4 bucks. It's an exceptional deal for a tool this feature packed. As far as I can tell anyway. If this is how it is, this will be my go to from here on in.
