My recording sounds weird!

We're sorry to hear that. All the recordings are made on your device. Try closing other apps and tabs. That will free up memory. And try again. If the problem persists let us know. If your recording is silent, try disconnecting any bluetooth headset that might be connected as those sometimes cause issues.

The site's not working!

Sorry! We’re doing everything we can to get the site working as smoothly as possible. Please email us with the browser you are using, what phone/laptop/desktop and tell us what happened. It will help us to make the site better.
