    Is there any reason not to install this app. It wants name, phone number email address and zip. Anyone do this yet? Is it safe and legit?

    I assume that voice notes are transcribed by humans not software? If the app is free how are they making off of this?

    Probably by selling your iPhone number to telemarketers!!

    When it asked for my phone number I said forget it!!

    That's why I haven't registered it yet! I want to but I don't think I want to take the chance of giving out my number.

    They ask for your phone # because the service traditionally works over the phone. I trusted them.

    I've found it converts much faster than by phone. Haven't had any issues with bugs

    Yes it's done by humans, don't know how they make money

    Didn't know that, glad I didn't sign up and I will now be deleting the app.

    Maybe I'm weird but that is creepy.

    It's actually done by a room full of monkeys with typewriters. Then scanned and converted to electronic text that is then sent back to you. :D;)
