Product review: the Dolby On app for audio and video recording

(This app has become so central to my process of video recording that I do not hesitate a second to give it a commercial plug.)

I have never used probably 80% of the functionality of this app, but what I do use performs beautifully.

It records both audio and video – and I think you can even create a livestream with it.

Every recording starts with three seconds of sampling the background noise, which it then filters out.

Pushing one button allows you to record in Dolby stereo – which I thought was reserved for movie theaters.

 Recording in this app puts your recording automatically on a cloud, whereas recording in my iPhone recorder stays in my phone until I find a way to upload it to the iCloud – which, with the terrible Wi-Fi signals that are available in the country, is a real issue.

It’s easy to write a title for your video, which can be a headache on the iPhone. 

iPhone recordings seem to provide light for night recording, which I have not yet found a way to do with the Dolby On app. But – just recording on the settings I currently have – videos on this app are more brightly illuminated than my naked eyes can see. 

I am way beyond happy with everything I get out of this app. I have to pinch myself that all this functionality actually came in a free app. I never tire of telling people about it.

These days all of my identities are converging: whether I am offering a blessing in the grocery store checkout line, offering a prayer in a poem or experiencing the kinship with all life while walking my or a client's dog - it's all the same. It's all Life.
