Nice idea but view files crashes the app everytime, regardless if there is a file loaded from iTunes or not. The dictionary loaded properly.

This app is a great way to practice theory and accuracy. I would love to be able to email my steno notes as well as the transcript. Thanks for the app.

As an official reporter, I was really excited to find this app. The touch is difficult as I sit and practice with a movie or newscast...that may change with the overlay. Would love to be able to have wide keys installed as an optional keyboard. Was able to load my personal dictionary without a problem. Looking forward to playing with this some more and hopefully seeing an update soon for the optional keyboard. Nice job!

I've had this app for a while and thought maybe I was having iPad issues, not app issues. I have uninstalled & reinstalled several times and can't write a sentence anymore. Super frustrating. Want a refund.

Great find! Very well-made app. Only two complaints is that the touch is super sensitive and not what I'm used to on my mira. Also, I use my asterisk key in conjunction with my "f" key a lot to make a "v" and the keys aren't close enough to do that. Will take some major practice to make that work. If the price is reasonable, will definitely invest in the keyboard overlay. Hopefully it will make writing easier by actually being Able to feel what you're typing. Overall, really awesome app for being free. No problems at all uploading my dictionaries.

I bought the overlay and a 3 month stenodoc membership. Stenodock is connected on my computer to my ipad but will not connect to my Case Catalyst. I've talked to a computer guru who cannot help. The email for stenodoc support is DEFUNCT!! My emails are being returned to me. Grrrrr. No refund, and the time is ticking on my membership. That's pretty rough. Also, the app hangs up when adds pop up. It has also frozen completely occasionally. My main complaint is that even though I have the membership I can't hook up to see how it's really coming out. It leaves me with zero confidence in the money I've spent. Boo

I am a court reporter and this is a great program. I can take notes when I don't have my machine with me. My iPad is easier to carry around than my machine. Thanks for this great program.

Wow! A must try! New version shows steno letters, which does help with getting used to it.

Per the fine print on the shipping material -- once you order the very expensive gel pad to give some tactile response to the app -- it's not returnable. No refunds, exchanges or returns. The gel pad is AWFUL. It comes in 1 format, so it will not match up to most common theory recommended wide key layouts. It's also much to soft, you are better off without it. That being said, the application is decent. It does need the ability to export notes and global untranslates. What would be also helpful is a way to open the dictionary and do maintenance via the application. Save your money on the gel pad. Until they allow returns on the item, I wouldn't recommend anyone purchase it.
