    Rubbish! Doesn't work, no better than a cheap free mic that comes with your phone!

    I believe the phone used in the video is 5s which in real doesn't work with iPhone's in built voice memo app. We tried to do download rode rec app but it says not available for your region (India). But ya rode rec lt app is available and it records with lav+ but the rec quality is poor, I mean the vocal cuts in between. I tried rode rec lt on iPhone 5s and iPhone 7 same problem in the recordings. I also tried recording on OnePlus 6 with its native voice recorder but it doesn't record. Kindly help what should I do. Assist me with some other apps for iOS or Android. Looking forward

    This is a dead video. Do one about how iPhone doesn't recognize the Smartlav, so you don't steal $100 from another person.

    I bought a smartlav+ microphone to make sure i had quality audio on the videoclips i post on social media. Turns out its doesent work with a samsung galaxy S4 Active. When plugged in, it does not record audio when recording video with the built in camera app. But it works when recording audio from an audio recroding app. why is that??

    If anyone is still wondering, the smartlav will work with any smartphone or tablet, ios or android, even if it's not listed on the website compatibility. The smartlav is an analog device that plugs in via a standard ttrs jack. This means that there can't be any issue with compatibility, since the jack is the only connection between the lav and your device. And forget about the Rode Rec app, it will never be developed for Android and the ios version is a pos. Just use RecForge on Android and everything will be fine.

    The microphone is great and I've been using in some professional shootings. But last week I had a problem for the first time. I was interviewing someone and the phone was in his pocket, maybe it could be the way the person hold the phone, but it stopped the recording right from beginning. The problem is that even blocking the screen, the sound recording app is still easily accessed by touching the blocking button. Luckly I had a backup shotgun microphone, but still this audio is different from all the other interviews. Has anyone been through this situation before? Is there an app that is not accessible at the blocking screen of the phone?

    hey rode. I have a question. I need to use a voice changer app (cosplay) on my iphone. can I plug in the Mic using the lightning adaptor and the amplifier using the 3.5mm port and the sound would come out of the amp ? or would using both ports cancel the sound. Many thanks

    the phone itself seems to be picking up as much noise as the mic itself. when it's placed in my pocket and walking, the vocals are almost inaudible compared to the rustling of the phone in my pocket. Any ideas? thanks

    I'm loving the smartlav, and I've been using it for all my videos up to now, but with the Rode app, just recently doesn't work for me! It crashes more than 50% of the times I tried to record, and it's basically the same on my 2 iPads (iPad Pro & iPad Air 2) and my iPhone 7! It either crashes when I'm done with the recording and click the Done button, or sometimes although it's recording and showing levels like usually, when I stop the recording as I've been doing usually it just deletes all recorded! Not sure why is that, but it's for all my devices! That's why when I use it with iOS device it's safer to use it with some other app!

    just taken delivery and it doesn't work on my iphone 6+ or my ipod video. Went on their website and there is no contact us facility – which I believe is illegal. So there's basically no customer support!!

    Bought this to record video not use their ridiculously impractical audio only app. I was told it worked on video and it clearly doesn't. Really annoyed there's no customer support!!

    We need an official app for Android. Performance is not stable even after you calibrate the gain every time before using it, you get audio clipping!. It is very disappointing.

    The microphone is awesome but the app is awful. Aside from the annoying reminders to upgrade to Pro, it doesn't remember your mic gain settings and it doesn't integrate properly with iOS export/sharing.

    for some reason i can't make my smartlav+ sound this good.
    I've tested with my zoom H1 (with adapter), with a galaxy note II (some recording app)
    and my smartlav+ just doesn't sound this good.

    Can anybody help me? is it pos-production or maybe my mic's broken?

    Whenever I record with my SmartLav+ the volume is SO low. I've upped the gain in the app and didn't make much of a difference. Could it be defective?
