Otter is life-changing!

Otter has been transformational for me as a professional writer, and has dramatically accelerated progress on a book I’m writing. I can wake up in the middle of the night with a single idea — wearing a sleep mask, not even opening my eyes — turn on the app and start talking. An hour later 15 pages of the book are written. And because I’m doing this in a half-dream state, the creativity and flow is incredibly intuitive and natural. I also use the Otter app to record meetings or conversations, or simply to jot down ideas as they occur while walking (since I always have my phone with me) that I can edit and export as a Word doc, etc later. What’s brilliant about Otter is that it synchronizes the audio to the text, so you can be in the middle of a one-hour interview, click on a word that was misheard/mistyped, and immediately find it in the audio version and correct it in the text. Otter is a writer’s best friend!


This app has saved me from taking many notes at business meetings, where it is important to remember our revenue driving ideas and strategies, sometimes you can’t keep up with how fast it can go. Otter makes this easy by automatically transcribing and giving the option to email/save them. Thank you Otter!

It’s more accurate than google’s dictate tools. I can review and edit the transcription to my voice recording.

Over charged

Hello, I purchased your product for what I thought was 99.99. However, I was charged 106.61. Can you please explain the overcharge to me? Thank you

Your app has gotten worse

When I first discovered your app, I found it very helpful. True, the transcription was 100% accurate, but it was at least 75%. This has not beey true lately. There has been recent occasions when your app either doesn't record at all or records so incorrectly that it is embarrassing. Now the transcription is either thoroughly inaccurate or adds swearwords in inappropriate places in a conversation. I am not sure why this is happening now, but until it is fixed, I am not interested in subscribing to your premium app.

Total Rip-off and non-existing customer service

I have ONE file I need to get a transcript for. I’m told I have to subscribe so I pay the $16 subscription. Now I’m told my $16 only get me 90mins. I need to pay a further $14 to get the rest of my ONE document. Oh, and by the way, my husband almost got fired when he used Otter previously because it records meetings and sends recordings to everyone on your meeting list indiscriminately. One person said during the meeting that she didn’t want it recorded. Too bad, there’s no way of stopping Otter from recording and sending her and everyone else the recording. You don’t even know who it sends it to. I wrote to customer service and am still waiting to hear back weeks later. Nobody cares apparently. I hope someone quickly comes up with a competitor so I can forget what a bad experience I’m getting with Otter.

Helpful synthesis and writing tool!!!

I am listening to assigned readings for school as I drive. I pause and speak my thoughts and ideas into Otter for review later. I get to real-time record content details first for summarization and then also for real-time “think-out-loud” evaluation of those details. I’m finding this App to be an incredible aid to my writing process.

Be careful

If you had asked me yesterday what I thought of this- 5 stars. Today- after the app automatically sent the recording of my meeting to my boss and all my colleagues and the prime contract- completely unprompted- well- not so much. Is it worth mentioning that I use the recordings bc I can’t keep up with everything people say? Maybe it’s unethical to not tell people ahead of time, but I certainly don’t think the app I pay $70 a year for is is in a position to out me.
