Good I use it for recording lectures. I like the automatic gain feature, it does a wonderful job so the audio is never too loud or too quiet.

Give ten stars to someone making a super-simple app for high quality raw audio files. Everything simple to operate, simple to setup. Only limitation is max 10 minutes of recording in the free version.

It's good actually, but if you add 32bit floating point would be much better, because some other apps have it, like ASR and Hi-res audio recorder and the results much decent and less noise floor
