The long-awaited launch of Scripter has shown just how much the new device has changed compared to the first wearable recorder by Senstone. But what about the app?
Our users have grown accustomed to the Senstone app over the years, and the launch is a good reason for them to be asking whether they should expect any dramatic changes or updates.
In this post, we are going to address your concerns, the best we can at this point.
Senstone App In 2021
As of now, Senstone app is available on Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS). Its primary function is to accompany Senstone devices. The app handles transcription, storage, sorting, and sharing of the notes taken with your Senstone recorder.
Another useful feature of the app is that you can record notes directly, using your phone.
Accurate is the premium version of our subscription. Just like the free app, it’s available on Play Store and App Store. In addition to the features included in the “default” Senstone app, Accurate offers the following features:
- flawless voice-to-text transcription
- personal dictionary
- spell checking & punctuation
- highlights of the words our system is not so sure about (usually proper nouns)
- paragraphs & abbreviations
- location tags

The Recent Update
You have probably noticed the transcription quality for the Basic plan has improved. This is due to the update we have implemented a couple of weeks ago across all platforms.
With the update, transcription has become much more reliable. The upgraded software differentiates words significantly better than the previous version. This allows for remarkable results, and now you can be sure the audio will translate into text as accurately as possible.
Scripter and the Future of the Senstone App
As you probably know, Scripter has a new microphone and records 16bit WAV audio files at 16kHz, as opposed to the 8bit recordings by the first Senstone device. This alone is going to boost transcription quality, as better audio makes it easier for the software to pick up individual sounds.
You are going to be able to connect your Scripter to the Senstone app like you would connect the original Senstone. We promise full support of Scripter.
Moreover, we are not planning to rebrand the app – at least for now. The launch of Scripter is not going to interfere with your favorite UI.
We are not imposing any limitations on the users of the “old” version of the recorder. We are going to support it for as long as we can.
The Basic version remains free for everyone, regardless of language, platform, or location.
