    Apparently the android version supports explicitly selecting the Bluetooth headset as the microphone. The iPhone version does NOT. How hard would that be? I know the app Just Press Record supports it. Please fix. I am canceling my subscription until it is.

    Didn't transcribe reliably, couldn't handle background noise, and when I tried to use my Bluetooth headset, it stupidly continued using the iPhone's built-in mic. I would pay $100 outright for a dictation app that was highly accurate, had good, reliable editing features, and worked properly with a BT headset. Suffice to say, I will *not* be paying $15 a month for this app. It takes less time and energy to simply recollect my thoughts later when I can write them down myself.

    I never write reviews. I don't have the time. Hence needing a good dictation software. I signed up for the trial, knowing about the 20 second limit but figuring I could just stop talking and turn the mic back on. 20 seconds: Popup: "Are you sure you want to log out?". Choose no. Continue dictating. 20 seconds: app refreshes. All dictation gone. Not saved anywhere. Reading the reviews, it seems this has happened to a few people. If you're just dictating stuff you don't care about, fine. But if you're a professional who needs their work to not vanish, don't bother with this app.
  • Very good, could be great

    UPDATE: I am constantly battling to keep the microphone on (shuts off automatically after a brief silence) and I am getting really frustrated. Having an option to change this would seem very logical. Please fix this! No updates since November 2016. Please update more regularly. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Please give a medical dictionary option. Please add Box support. Please update more frequently. Please stop turning off the microphone, unless the the user requests so. Please add a more refined training option for incorrect words. Thank you. I will continue to pay and look forward to improvements.

    Excellent dictation, but a fatal flaw. There is no Bluetooth support on iOS. The user manual for the software/service says that it supports Bluetooth on Android devices. So, if you plan to use this on your iPhone with an AirPod or some other Bluetooth headphone, you can forget it. Perhaps, Dragon should give iOS users 75% off on the $15 subscription until they can sort out how to enable Bluetooth. Overall, the software is so clunky. It's unfortunate that such amazing dictation is trapped in the body of such a subpar app. They figured out how to do the hard part and couldn't pull off the layup. --- updated June 26, 2017 After two months of trying Dragon Anywhere, I cancelled my Dragon subscription. It ultimately came down to the fact that it is a terrible piece of software that traps and shackles a wonderful power of dictation. The dictation knocks the pants off Siri. Unfortunately, without smooth ways to input and output content, it becomes a chore to use, and unworthy of a $15/month subscription. The following would begin to address concerns: 1) enable bluetooth input on iOS. Without wireless voice entry, the dream of dictation without tethering is lost. That bluetooth voice entry can be done on Android and not on iOS is inexcusable. 2) Better Dropbox and iCloud integration of dictated text. I won't spell out the details of what is lacking and how it can be fixed. It's sort of obvious, and if the developers can't figure it out on their own, then perhaps it is best that Dragon Anwhere remains in the fringe. 3) $15/month is darn steep. Dragon could make a lot more money by decreasing the monthly rate, which would increase the number of subscriptions. My guess is that they haven't done a very thorough analysis of their business model and are missing out on visibility and profit. 4) customer support is weird and awful. I navigated through their pages and submitted a question regarding bluetooth to Nuance. After a day or two, I got a reply and was told "...we would recommend calling Digital River ( 888-372-1908 option 3). This department handles Dragon Anywhere. They may be able to answer your inquiry about Bluetooth Headset Support." When I call Digital River, I learn they handle billing, customer service --- but, their not the technical brains behind the development of the software. Basically, I get the picture of a technically-stellar company (Nuance) that is awesome at their core expertise (Dictation) and has no clue about business models, user interface, and everything else that could transform their dictation platform into having broad and powerful impact. Too bad. Apple ought to buy the whole darn thing.... except the history of acquisitions is unkind to the core technology.
  • Too many errors

    iOS built-in voice to text is much more accurate. After trying this product for several days there are numerous problems that make it not only not worth paying for but also irritatingly deficient. 1. Inability to remember corrected pronouns such as iOS does. 2. Suddenly stops working for no apparent reason during the middle of the paragraph. 3. After getting a paragraph or two correct suddenly seems to be confused and changes the words completely. Maybe this is because none of the processing is done on the phone but in the cloud. But the times I am referring to all had continuous Wi-Fi connectivity. I would not pay $1.99 per month let alone $15 per month for such ineptitude.
  • Beware it won't function without subscription

    Note that this app won't even get past the first screen without signing up for a monthly subscription (1st week free, but auto-renewing). Their last app went abandoned for 4 years without an update...
