Audio recordings are no longer saved locally. I opened the app for the first time in a month only to discover the latest update wiped out my recordings. They no longer populate in my recordings list. I was prompted with a link to download my recordings. I followed the link but the link is broken. Erroneous download. If they are locally on my phone the developer has done a poor job developing the app! I shouldn't be searching for my recordings!! More BS from developers!!

Hi Robert, this is just plain wrong, sorry. Recordings are by default stored on your device and your device only. You can upload to your private cloud, if you choose to. Your files were not deleted, the storage folder changed. There is a file migration dialog after the update, which you can revisit later under „path & file name“ in the settings.

Does the job. Reliably using it for years. And there are problems that I think heard which are leading me to look for another app despite owning this one. If you navigate away from the app into another app, the recording continues but no audio is recorded. also you're recording a segment and your phone screen turns off to the timing out, it continues recording but no audio content is recorded.

Fails to save recording if switch to other apps or if screen times out or if accidentally lock phone while recording. All is lost. Tried using other recorders in hopes of finding something that wouldn't lose live recordings. But I keep coming back to Tapatalk bc overall as long as don't switch apps or lock the screen TapeaTalk has the most reliable quality with no weird time limits. By far.
