Accessibility Comments

This app works very well with VO. there are a few unlabled elements, but after reading the hints, you can figure out what they do and label them if needed.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

I heard about the apple watch version of this app, so got that and then decided to check this version out as well. What a neat tool!

Just purchased the app for my Mac and like it so far. The only thing I find a little annoying is that it seems to automatically start recording when I open the app.

Is there a way to configure it to only begin recording when I tell it too and not everytime I open the app?
