  • Rev recorder Sep 6, 2020

    By derf 33
    I would rate this apt a 4 star. I have used it on my I-phone 6s to record live performances of music and it works well as long as the background noise is not too loud, but that comes with the territory. Due to the pandemic I may never hear from them again. Since I sing/ perform to background music tracks I have recently started to record some of these songs so I can practice them as well as remember them. I would have given the apt 5 stars but that would assume that I will not explore something superior, which I will. I wish there was some way to created a file to share a few of my recordings.

  • Voicemail audio transcribed. May 31, 2020

    By Dixiezap
    Horrible! Waste of money. Was charged $6 for a 2:00 min voicemail audio to be transcribed and got back a one page double or more spacing with about 10 lines of what was said in voicemail. At least 7 of those 10 lines transcribed from my 2 min voicemail was the inaudible. The words transcribed from this voicemail and on my final report where most of the parts you could hear just a lil distorted or clear they put down as something just didn’t make any since with the sentence before , after, or at all period. Plus I was promised it completed and sent to me within 24 and it took almost 72. This was joke.

  • 12 Hour Turnaround... Feb 28, 2020

    By Amelch
    I am torn between 3 and a 4. On the one hand, the work I have had done has been pretty accurate, and worthy of a 4 - maybe higher. One of the transcriptions I received was actually flagged by their QA team and redone for me. My problem is the turnaround. 12 hours is promised yet I am still waiting on one from the 26th and one from the 27th. There are no updates to find out what is taking so long or why there is a delay. I may try a different service with today’s recording just to compare. The turnaround piece is why I would give a 3.

    I am truly disappointed with whatever this potential upgrade was supposed to be. Are used to be able to stop a recording and then append it and now I can’t do that so I have to make 15 recordings if I need to pause and come back to it. I keep making recordings hoping that I can just leave it on pause and then I come back and the whole thing is gone. It used to be that if you left a recording it saved it anyway and said there was unsaved data. Now this application is more simple and less functional than the one that I used for 4 years. Highly disappointing and I wish I never had this application upgraded on my phone. The old one is still on my iPad and thank God for that.

    Downloaded it to turn voicemail into texts. Looked all around app and all I see is a voice recorder, no other features. Uninstalling now. So that was a waste of 5 minutes of my day.

    Way too expensive for transcription . Thought it was gonna be an alternative to otter but not for $100 transcription for one meeting. I can't tell you about the quality of the transcription tho. It is a higher rating just for a basic recording app.

  • What a service! May 31, 2018

    By amulkey5
    I work in the legal field and—while I realize that this is no substitute for an actual court reporter—Rev has been incredibly useful tool! I’m completely impressed by the accuracy and attention to detail. So far we have use this tool to convert recorded conversations with witnesses into transcripts that can be entered into evidence (if you do it right). I really hope that this is a company that is paying their freelancers well, because it’s clear that they are doing an excellent job (and it’s suspiciously inexpensive). Thanks for providing such an outstanding service!

    I worked with this app for few days and it was fine. Now it keeps crashing! Thankyou very much for your quick response. I edited my review since it seems that somehow app is working again. ( after few uninstall/reinstalls). Thanks again for your great customer service.

  • So helpful! Sep 5, 2019

    By wordgirrl
    This has helped me hone my standup set so well. I can record my work and the critiques, and (if I remember to put them in before I order) they’ll even put the right names with the voices. In fact, that’s the only thing I detract a star for: there isn’t a way to add the names once you submit the order. :( but super helpful anyway. Thank you!

    Harder now to delete recordings. Just updated to newer version after 1 year with last version. Nice interface except too hard to delete. Should be swipe left vs view and then trashcan. 6.11.19 update. Good change to swipe to delete in version 2.4. Would be nice to disable the confirmation prompt since one already swiped left and then selected DELETE. Don't need 3 actions to delete. Would have been 5 stars but new change to default to save & transcribe instead of save is unwelcome.

  • Cannot get text out of the app easily Sep 7, 2020

    By DeirdreJDesigns
    Great app and service. As far as transcription it’s a ten. I’m giving it a 3 however because it is nearly impossible to get the transcribed text out of the app and into any other app. As someone who is constantly on the move and often works on my phone, this is extremely frustrating. Even the press and copy feature is unpredictable and often gets replaced by their own user edit bar. I hope they improve the app to be more share friendly in the future.

    Great app with no native backup. Sure export to dropbox, but no other service available, backing up your phone doesn't back up your recordings. Few designs flaws.

    I've loved this app for years (super reliable and easy to use), but am very disappointed with the latest update. Why did you remove features?! The Search bar and the ability to easily skip to any point while playing back a recording were my two favorite features. Please bring them back! Their absense makes playing back recordings really irritating, especially when I just want to listen to a specific later section of a long recording.

  • Can’t even tell if recordings are backed up Feb 4, 2020

    By alixorus
    Nowhere on the site I can find does it say whether recordings are backed up on iCloud so they are not lost if I lose my device. Also their support consists of question form that just searches their knowledge base, but provides no way of actually having a human answer. Lastly it crashes after 1.5 hours of recording, losing the remaining audio. Looks like a new update may have fixed this. However what I really need is my audio files on iCloud, and it seems they must not do that as it doesn’t say it anywhere. This app seems largely a way to sell transcription services, and doesn’t focus on features beyond that - like backup.

  • Expensive Sep 10, 2019

    By 6261994
    I wanted to use this to transcribe my class lectures so I would be able to understand my professors but they want $1 a minute for the transcription. I go to so many lectures a week this is not practical for students.

  • App steers users to more expensive service May 1, 2020

    By Redstickguy
    Rev charges $1.25/ minute for human transcription. It charges $.25/ minute for automated (speech recognition) when files are submitted through the Rev web site . This app does not provide the option of selecting the automated transcript option, thus automatically steering users to the option that costs more. Spread over many users and many recordings this may have a revenue impact for Rev, but users should be given a choice. I have written to Rev directly about this but the practice persists. The app needs to be updated to provide users with the lower cost option.

    The app doesn't seem to allow you to sort your recordings or automatically play the next recording in a series. Would have thought these are basic functionalities that would be included with any audio player app. My goal is to listen to audio lectures while driving, so I can't be constantly messing with my phone to play the next recording.

    This app will not let you add to a recording, so if you're using it (like I do) to record inspired ideas that arise at any time, you're forced to save dozens of single ideas or risk losing your file as there is no confirmation on pre-saved files. If you want to avoid accidental erasures and also avoid having to send dozens of short recordings off to be transcribed, you have to type them out yourself yo get them into a single file. I've reported these rather easy to resolve issues many times.

  • Could be better Sep 25, 2019

    By 74157466
    It doesn’t automatically save. So if your phone shuts off in the middle of recording you just lost everything you just recorded. When my phone turned back on it didn’t go back to the recording so I can save it. All was lost of my dying father’s words. This app could be better if It saves as it was recording.

  • Poor transcript viewer May 31, 2019

    By draynoh
    It’s difficult to copy the transcript out of the app and paste it. Unfortunately I still have to go back to the computer. Would be nice if there was a feature that automatically emailed you a text file instead of having to go to the Internet to download it. This would really help the automation of my workflow.
