Just what I needed - Except... - Very simple and out-of-the-way. Recorded for 36 minutes, being able to pause was very useful. Edit: Pretty annoyed rn because like I said I recorded for 36 minutes (me reading out loud) and when saving I accidentally clicked the icon in my taskbar and it started recording again for a few seconds and saved THAT recording as what i had already been saving and now I’ve lost what I recorded for 36 minutes… I didn’t really need it but I made some interesting comments while reading and feel like I’ve lost something :( I don’t think that should have happened. Edit #2: Yay! I opened up the app again and there’s an “unsaved recording” thing in the menu bar, it’s still there! Good job, guys. Great app.
Tinny, low quality - I downloaded this app onto my Mac to record a radio show running through my browser. The output is horrible. I had a completely quiet background during the entire session. I had far superior quality from the recorder on my iPhone during a recent conference where there was TONS of ambient noise.

Good but could be great - All in all, solid recording. PRO features are good but one stumbling block is when I hide the flashing red light and timer in the pro version(because I don’t want people to see I’m recording), there is no way to see anywhere else what the elapsed time is. So, I need to see elapsed time somewhere, just don’t want it counting prominently making it obvious I’m recording the meeting. Maybe just mousing over the icon in the dock or upper right screen where it’s running and get a tool tip of the elapsed time would be nice.
Exactly What It Says on the Tin - Simple Voice recorder is a very simple audio recorder for macOS. I’d like to see an option to hide or make more subtle the status bar symbol, which flashes red and white with a timer when recording. Once those features are rolled out, I’ll buy this app. The free version works great! If you need subtlty with this until then, set your menu bar to hide.
Great App - I use this daily app daily and I love it. Some people have commented on it the fact should be easier to use, but I am not sure how it could be any easier than clicking record.
works well - highly recommended - Works very well. Simple to operate and recordings are good and easy to work with.
Does the job - I downloaded it for recording an accordion song I play and it did an outstanding job!! Saved it in Mp4 format automatically which is the format I was after.
