So disappointed in this app. There's always some kind of a problem. It's difficult to change your podcasts link. No matter what you type in, it'll tell you it's already taken. You can't move episodes to a different part of your podcast, if you accidentally recorded and published it under a different episode file. The music feature is a little glitchy as well. Then good luck finding customer service. Great concept, that needs a lot of help.

I would love to give this app five stars but there is one problem. There was some new update that messed up recording. When I stop recording after recording for a while it backs out of the app and then goes back in, then it's 50/50 if it savedor not. It tells me fetching your audio. I will change my review after it gets fixed. I would also love if the hour time limit was extended to 1hr and 30 minutes. More time is always better. But other than the problem I love this app.

Latest update has absolutely destroyed this app for me. The "enhance sound" button is ridiculously useless, it actually ruins the sound completely, I have licensed music playing in the background and since the latest update it sounds as if its under water. When I record and say I want to save a short clip and record again I literally have to close the app, reopen it, then redownload the recording and add it to the episode. Why oh why fix what ain't broke? the app used to be perfect smh
