I had used for some time . Was awkward to set up finally worked OK but now unable to upload despite reinstall and tried on another device. Crashes frequently and will now look for a more stable alternative. Since July has become more stable and able to reliably upload dictation. Apparently some sort of server problem but disappointed no notification of the problem from Olympus. Please improve customer advice. upgrade to 4 stars

Delay in pausing record, delay in start record, very slow file compression, and finally introducing charges but I unable to register due to issue with password. I am uninstalling, there are better apps and devices for electronic recording.

I stopped using this app because it had had no development for years and stopped working, despite paying exorbitant licensing costs. Glad to see some development happening. given the cost associated with using this app you'd expect it to be a lot more stable than it is, and have ongoing maintenance.
