Absolutely Great App - Highly Recommend - eXtra Voice Recorder is a fantastic application - I absolutely love it. I use it on my computer when talking on Skype inside the U.S. or with other countries - meetings, consultations, important conversations with family, etc. What I specifically like about it: 1) It has so far never failed 2) The quality of recording is really good 3) It is extremely easy to use 4) It is easy to make markers in the conversation (without stopping and restarting recording) 5) I can type the name of tracks while still speaking to the person 6) Afterwards, I can place a copy of the track, or the whole converstion in the needed folder, so that I can easily find it when I need to - it would play via the iTunes then. I have not read what problems the unlucky people got (those who rated the app as 2 and 1), but I certainly enjoy and value this app very much!

Awful. - I needed an app for recording lectures. I would click "Record" and it seems to work fine, it says I was recording until i clicked "Stop Recording" but when I would go to listen to the lecture later, only half of it would be there. It is very frustrating and I would have to keep redoing assignments over and over again hoping it would record the whole thing. I'd even let it run an extra few minutes in hopes that it would save the first parts that had the assignment. Even then it would record less and less everytime and not record what I needed it too. Please, don't get this app. I want my 10 dollars back.

Great recording app for students - When I downloaded this app, it helped me to record the whole class, and take note for each time frame at the same time. Noise from my classmates was canceled out too, which helps me alot. The thing makes eXtra Voice Recorder different from other recording apps is that it allows you to take note, tags in during the record. I was able to study again when I get home. Pretty straightforward, easy to use, helpful and worth the money! You won’t be disappointed.

perfect for what I need - Was looking for a straightforward sound recording app and was really pleased with this one, and I love the export features and syncing. Surprised to see a long list of features and hotkeys, the categories and folders make it easy to organize all my recordings neatly.

Reviews must be written by app creator - Sorry to say, but while this app claims 5 stars, it certainly doesn’t deserve it. First of all, it uses up well over a quarter of my computer’s memory, significantly slowing down its’ operation. I use Shazam’s OSx app and it’s literally constantly using my microphone scanning for sound (for potential songs to match for me) but EVEN Shazam doesn’t hog up nearly 2.5 PERCENT of the memory that eXtra Voice Recorder uses. Nonetheless, this couldn’t and shouldn't be explained by Dropbox syncing either (which by the way is very inefficient and doesn’t update properly across devices as it purports to). Therefore, neither of these likely suspects could or should possibly explain eXtra Voice Recorders’ absurd memory usage. Secondly, for whatever reason this app records audio files in m4a audio format and constantly crashes iTunes when attempting to play them (both applications are on the latest software update). Thirdly, the little menu-bar dropdown window is terribly non-user friendly and is missing many intuitive functions. I’m not even going to start with my suggestions as it’d be a waste of space here… Finally, for anyone looking to pair this app with it’s mobile partner, I’m afraid to say its an absolute waste of time, money, and sanity. This was the one and only attractive feature to me but I just ended up losing numerous important recordings because the mobile app constantly crashes and fails to make recordings (how can a recording app fail at successfully recording?!?). In any case, this app is so simple, yet so terribly designed and nonetheless, for $9.99, it’s 100% totally NOT worth it. I also forgot to mention, I’ve emailed the app creator three times with polite complaints and requests and have only received one response in clearly non-native english claiming they’d fix the problems. It’s likely this app-creator is not dedicating the appropriate time to the app and nevertheless is most likely writing these very endorsing 5-star reviews. The only reason this app gets 2-stars is because it can record audio and sort the files for you, but you can easily do this with plenty of other apps available to you, SO PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DONT BUY THIS APPLICATION.

Review by BartlomiejM

Dropbox sync doesn't work for me - The Dropbox sync feature does not work at all for me. I contacted tech support, and they were not able to solve the problem. They suggested I do a re-install, and after that solve anything, they just said "ask Dropbox for help". Also, I find myself having trouble with naming markers after I drop them. Although it works, that feature is a bit clumsy. Other than than, the app works fine.

Simple Yet Effective Voice Recorder. - Hello, I purchased this recorder several moonth ago and it works great for personal recording sessions for my podcasts and audio sales pitches. I do however, want to warn you that you will get hammered with popups until you rate the app in iTunes. I just pray the developer will quit asking me to rate the application after this review is complete. Best, Seth Riley
