  • JPR team, your app is perfect

    By Dom B L
    Watch and iPhone app just work perfectly. Thank you
  • Great App! Needs some improvement.

    By Colin.Conn
    This app is well executed, however; some aspects of the UI need to be revisited such as renaming files, and playback. File folder organization options would be a welcome addition too. The ability to add markers to wave files via your apple watch or in the app itself is a missed opportunity too. Still a great app, don’t let my criticism keep you from buying it.
  • Best app for getting ideas saved quickly

    By Minionofset
    It’s true that Just Press Record does not have the best transcription, but that’s because it’s free. There’s a reason most transcription services charge: doing it well is hard, and often requires human beings. I never bought this program to transcribe for me, I bought it to save my ideas quickly and on-the-go, and this does exactly that, all while looking beautiful at the same time. Oh, and they don’t charge for iPad and iPhone separately, they just give you the great app on the other when you buy one. Don’t listen to the haters, this app is hot, and worth every penny!
  • The best of known

    By SunshingWings
    it’s simple, easy and ready to use. No unnecessary functions but only what it’s meant to do.
  • Stopped working on phone

    By wumpwumps
    The watch app still works, but after only a single day, the iPhone apps stopped working. I click, it flashes for a quarter second, screen goes black for quarter second, then I’m kicked back to my home screen. Too bad, I really wanted to like this
  • If you need to transcribe, do not use this app

    By juandiegoak
    I bought this app to do interviews and for help in the transcribing process (I am a researcher and transcribing takes a long time). The transcription in this app is worthless. I had to do everything myself, because I spent more time fixing the errors from the app’s transcription than actually writing from scratch. I wasted 6 dollars on this app. Wish I could have that money back and spend it on a coffee.!
  • Love the app, airpods sometimes problematic

    By Clarkezone
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app.. it’s the killer app for the Apple Watch and I use it many times every day at this point. The only problem I’ve had with it is that it doesn’t always work with the airpods.. I find that the recording hasn’t used the airpods even though they are paired and working. Not sure if this is a bug or a limitation, hoping it can be fixed. Would also like to be able to review / listen to more than just the last one on the watch, through the airpods. But still, go get this app now, it is so awesome.
  • Disappointing

    By Hector.P
    I have a new iPhone 8 and the app does not transcribe the entire recording or nearly as fast as the manufacturer would lead you to believe in the App Store.
  • Fixing Finger Fail Would Get Five Stars

    By zogmog
    Super easy recording controls but my over all satisfaction with this app is compromised by the precision required in order to select the file name field. Despite some facility with most iOS interface elements, my click accuracy on this app is very poor, and as a result each new recording is generally first followed by a frustrating finger fail dance that results in the file I want to name or rename opening and closing multiple times before the gesture is finally recognized as an attempt at name field selection.
  • Awful App

    By Gharary
    When I read the description, I thought it’s an app which you can start recording from iPhone by just tapping on my Watch without having to open the App in iPhone. But every time I tap recording on my Watch It’s just use my Watch’s Microphone to record. Even when I set the settings on the iPhone app and select iPhone microphone as Input, again when I start record on my Watch, it use my watch’s mic.
