According to the current description, this app's main feature seems to be the ability to "find its icon"—and in unusual places too: it's "in the dock," in the "menu bar," and even "on the right side of the menu bar!"). Simple question: What does Simple Recorder do exactly? The screenshot suggests that it records something by pressing a red button—is it the desktop, video feed from a web-cam? Does it record audio, video, both? Here's the current description (Apr 1 2017): "Simple Recorder allows you to find its icon in the right side of your menu bar. Click it to show the menu.

USELESS!

The app opened and displayed a "Save to this location" window.
I selected the Downloads folder, clicked the "New Folder" button and...the app froze.

I force quit and reopened. This time the "save to" dialog was not displayed. I went to the menu icon and chose Preferences>Save to this location. Again it froze when I clicked the "New Folder" button.

I went ahead and tried recording a phone call made through Google Hangouts in Safari.
When finished it asked for a save location, so I was able to choose a folder for that one file.
But it recorded NOTHING - just silence.

I record phone calls with Audio Hijack all the time, and am able to tell it WHAT to record.
To record calls in Safari I had to add GoogleTalkPlugin as the source.

Maybe the in-app or "external module purchases" would allow recording other sources, but I’m not about to pay to find out.


You get what you pay for.
Audio Hijack is expensive at $49, but it WORKS, and doesn’t require additional purchases.
