  • Great app, needs other Cloud providers integration

    By Simmouk
    This is a great replacement app for Apples inbuilt rubbish! It desperately needs the ability to auto save to other Cloud providers (OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox etc) so customers aren’t reliant on iCloud.
  • Amazing - great app

    This app has changed the way I work, I am more efficient & as long as I transcribe or listen to my inbox regularly I have no excuses for letting anything slip. Mainly use the watch app. Also thank you Open Planet for not having horrid splash screens telling me to review & please keep updating.
  • Great App

    Finally, an app that lives up to its name. Just Press Record. That’s it. Nothing else. That’s all you need to do. Even my mum could handle this and she has problems even turning the TV on.... This recording app has saved me time and stress. It works especially well on the Apple Watch as well as my phone. I’m REALLY pleased with it and thoroughly recommend JUST PRESS RECORD.
  • A Great App

    The clue is in the name, you can Just Press Record. If you need to make a quick and reliable recording then Just Press Record and this app will make a very good job of it on any device and keep everything you record in sync. A feature set beyond that begins to impact upon app performance and reliability, therefore further processing is best done with a complimentary app. All transcription is temperamental, especially Siri’s, so I wouldn’t bother with transcription unless it works for you.
  • Works as advertised.

    By DiddyMU
    Apple Watch complication, one touch record is invaluable. So convenient. Works flawlessly.
  • I love it. Since the update even better.

    This app just keeps getting better and better. It's at the point now where I wouldn't really get an Apple Watch if I couldn't have JPR! New features and bug squashes happen all the time; I swear you'll find endless uses for this app, even if you're not a musician/audio tech. But if you are I can assure you this app won't disappoint. I feel like they bribed me for the way I keep gushing over it, but the only "bribe" they made was this incredible app that I am so glad I paid the reasonable asking price for. My older review follows: I was surprised to learn that there was no 1st party support for recording on Apple Watch.. and then I was surprised to learn that not all the watch 'recording' apps actually recorded locally on the watch and therefore would still be useful even if out of range of my iPhone. Once I saw that I was more than happy to pay for JPR and even though it's only rarely I need to record something I am always so glad I have it. The UI is super easy to use, it fits in with Apple's apps just like you want iOS/watchOS apps to do. And even before the update (which really locked things in) I never lost a recording or even had trouble getting them across from the watch. Since, it's just a dream app that really brings significant additional value to one of my favourite Apple devices, if only because its widdle face is so kerrrruute! Erm, where was I. Man good job nobody is recording this...
  • Sync doesn’t work.

    By Pocketjem
    Revised my review 21/01/2018. After a reboot of my watch and iPhone the syncing seems to now be ok. It’s worth trying this if your having problems.
  • I don’t get this app at all. It’s rubbish

    By jppledger
    I don’t get this app at all. It’s had good reviews and looks fancy. But it has less functionality than the stock voice memo app. Sure, it has a transcription feature but it’s crap. I mean, really crap. And therefore useless. You can’t edit or trim the recordings. You can’t import existing voice memo recordings from your phone. And the share sheet is poor, and the widget kinda poorly implemented. Oh and the waveform doesn’t relate in any way to what’s actually being recorded - that’s just lazy coding. So...err...£4.99 for an app that doesn’t do much at all really. My advice to anyone reading this is to get an app called Ferrite if you’re looking for an upgrade on the stock app. The free version smacks this one out of the park. And if you want even fancier features then Ferrite has those too, though they’re expensive. I really wanted to love Just Press Record. But I don’t. I feel fleeced.
  • Must have

    By RagnarSnaer
    But: • could you change label name to shorter JPRecord or JPR? I like my font large on iPhone X and current name gives those three dots... you know, those tiny annoying things :)
