  • Please.... reflect it.

    By tinyhippppo
    I'm using it well. All right, but why can't the control screen be displayed on the locked screen when I play the recording file? Like a music app. It's so uncomfortable. I would appreciate it if you could reflect it.
  • A useful tool

    By Zero92787
    This app has saved my job. I was working at a job that had a history of shady closed door meetings, where they would make up anything against you. This app gave me the tools to take down that practice when it was used against me.
  • Great for my purpose

    By Bruteforcejeff
    Love this app. Great clarity and works like a charm. My ex wife likes to make things up about me so I use this app to protect myself anytime I pick my child up. Hasn’t failed me yet.
  • Best app for Apple Watch

    By MrFatigue
    I use it as a complication on a watch face, and it works perfectly. Just tap once to record, and again to stop The files are stored in iCloud inside a Just Press Record folder, which makes it easy to manage. They can even be dragged into Notability, if you want to transcribe a recording later on.
  • A must have app.

    By slashignore4
    A must have. Don’t get caught without it. This app will have your back and prove that he said she said is a thing in the past. Just press record said she said. If that makes any sense at all but I know a few out there know exactly what I mean. Thank you for a wonderful app.
  • Just press and record!

    It’s so easy to set up a complication on your watch to press and record, so extremely easy and accurate with Transcription through Siri
  • Really the only good Apple Watch recorder

    By calibrether1234
    My only wish is an option to make the recording view more discreet. A big red item makes it embarrassing if I’m recording an interview or something
  • One of my favorite apps

    By eric.pulizzano
    Just press record is a great app. Very well designed and easy to use across my entire Apple eco system.
  • Should be stock!

    By StumpyFuzzball
    No idea why Apple went to the trouble to update their voice memos app when Just Press Record is vastly superior.
  • Why don’t you have this program?

    By TheEverseer
    Don’t you want a one touch recorder that goes anywhere on your wrist? Offline supported!
