Works well with anything

I use it a lot. Plug in any standard mic with XLR cable - not futzing with USB or device-unique microphones. Works with my iPad, with Garage Band or any other recording app. Works on my Android phone (especially nice with the Sony recording app.) It's got pre-amp gain control, phantom power, 1/4" headphone monitor output. Very nifty little device.

Not Bad, Especially Considering the Price

I picked up one of these for recording phone interviews (you can use the headphone out to run your mic and phone call to a recorder), and it's actually pretty good. There's some high-frequency hiss on the line, but it's not overwhelming, and for the money, you'd be crazy to expect better sound quality. In fact, the most impressive things about this gadget is that, cheap as it is, it really doesn't suck.

GOod device

works good, I'm using it for my church.

Difficult if Not Impossible to Export Audio

Well, it's awesome to have a iPhone App with a Pre that takes your favorite mic. But I'd say that if I haven't been able to export the audio into some useful place, what's the point? The iTunes file share option seems non functional. The wifi/IP function seems fairly non functional. I was able to upload to Soundcloud, but big yip, who cares if I can't pull it into a DAW to play with. Sadly a disappointing fail at this point I'd say.
