5 star if limit increased free. Not long enough for class. Need 1 hour. Like mp3 format. Want larger buttons so can jot notes to self quickly.

The only things I don't like about it are 1) there doesn't appear to be any way to stop or pause a recording that you're playing. 2) there's no home screen widget for it so I have to do a little more tapping to bring up the ability to record. My needs require that I be able to quickly, with little effort, be able to record notes, etc. and this doesn't work. BUT for those of you looking to have great sound quality, among its other qualities, this is the perfect app. I use tapeatalk, which does have a widget.

Quick, great sound quality, no glitches so far. Used this in a pinch to record audio to send to ABC News Radio (national) during breaking news.

sound quality is excellent, and my child likes to watch the green gain bar go up and down as he speaks and sings. Gain controller is convenient.

Doesn't need access to my system configuration like many others. Also can increase how loud it will record foyer playback which is helpful.

The recording quality is so much better than the default recorder on my thunderbolt and I don't have to covert it to a useable format on my computer
