PowerMic Mobile turns your smartphone into a secure wireless microphone for use with Windows-based desktop clinical speech recognition solutions. Optimized for use with Dragon Medical One and Dragon Medical Direct, PowerMic Mobile gives clinicians the freedom to roam from workstation-to-workstation, room-to-room, and location-to-location to complete clinical documentation using their smartphone as a wireless microphone at the desktop. PowerMic Mobile enhances clinician productivity and convenience with support for virtualized EHR deployments, user programmable buttons, and 256-bit encryption with end-to-end security over WiFi or cellular networks. Clinicians can now opt to use PowerMic Mobile as a complimentary input device, or as an alternative, to the PowerMic II/III or other supported handheld or headset microphone.

  • An Apple Watch Version Would Be Extremely Useful

    By Yanusz
    This app saves quite a bit of time and is a God send. The software is some what glitchy when you get interrupted and have to stop and start dictation. In that case it often places text in a different location than the cursor location. This can get frustrating. Overall a very solid app. If the errors from stopping and and starting were resolved and they created an Apple Watch app that worked well I’d give it 5 stars.
  • Buggy as hell

    By acparks1
    This app could be so great. However, it is extremely buggy. It works the first time around 20% of the time, and only half of the time after restarting the app or Dragon bar of the computer. Dictating is so convenient, it’s a shame that the time saved with dictation is basically lost with having to deal with such horribly designed software.
  • Shortfalls

    By Savidjazz
    Apple Watch support would be awesome. Also considering acquiring notable. It has a great concept.
  • Excellent app - much better than an actual mic

    By buckeyeallergydoc
    I love this app. Makes me so much more productive in my medical practice. Now with iOS 14 - PLEASE MAKE A WIDGET I CAN PUT ON MY HOME SCREEN TO ACTIVATE THE MIC!!!
  • Can’t add profile

    By Habis
    When I click add profile and a place to add profile URL a keyboard never pops up to type it in. Won’t give any other option to add profile. Essentially, it’s useless and now I can’t use my Dragon profile.
  • Inefficient

    By Abhinav Brookfield
    The app disconnects very frequently. My iPhone is tied to the Epic EMR and obviously I cannot change the settings on the phone to prevent it from locking after a few minutes (this is security related hospital driven setting) and as soon as the iPhone locks the power mic also disconnects. To go back in you again need to open the app tab and then again login and then again click the microphone on to dictate. Extremely annoying. Also if you switch between the power mic app and some other app, you have to redo the whole connection again. Makes the whole process of dictating very inefficient. Should have an always on top function which does not disconnect and with a simple voice command like “turn power mic on” or “off” to start and stop dictating. I was initially very enthusiastic about using it but it’s just clunky the way it is.
  • Can we have “Say Siri turn in Power Mic”?

    By doctpvo
    Currently Siri can only open the app. Is there anyway to have Nuance power Mic work with Apple to allow Siri to open and turn on power mic with just one command. It would be great to be able to dictate right away
  • Keyboard does not come up

    By The1WhoListens2AllEpisodes
    Version has a bug and does not allow for keyboard to come up. Can’t enter information. Additionally can’t send in-app feedback as no email is provided when hitting feedback button.
  • Poor app

    By ZakZQ
    Poor app poor connection. When it works is very helpful but unreliable and freezes frequently. Continue to have issues. Not recommended.
