Had this for about 2 weeks now. Awesome. I prop my phone on the dash using a suction-cup holder. Open the app, press the record button and it records video in 5-minute increments you can retrieve in your pictures folder. It will even record in the background if you're using Google navigation or talking to someone on the phone. It also records audio. Important to note, this app will not magically make your phone's camera better and sitting your phone on the dash in the sun will make it heat up.

Overall This ap is great! ** Pro: LOTS of options for how you want camera set up, recording quality/length, storage options, etc. * Not jammed with ads and the very few there are do not interfere. **Con: It seems like video does not record if a GPS signal cannot be found. (?) This is obviously a significant detractor if true. Minus one star. (If there is a way to prevent this i will revise this) Samsung A32

Just downloaded, but so far it seems to do everything i want it to do, is user friendly which is most important when riding motorcycles. This app also has more control options than any other I have downloaded as of yet. The speed display seems accurate as well.. Adds suck just like any other app, but that's the price we pay so we don't have to pay out of pocket. ** Recommendation - would really like to have a variety of speedometer display/color options. Temperature display would also be cool.
