Used @RiversidedotFM after reviewing around eight other tools. I am so stoked I made the right choice. At no point I got confused. Perfect balance of getting the user to do what they want and how they want it. Most importantly, everyone in the episode found it easy.

@RiversidedotFM Congrats on the iOS launch.  I've been super-pleased with the web-based app so far.  Hope an Android version is following close behind. :)

Pretty neat to see how quickly @RiversidedotFM is building out their product. I've only recently started using their web app for recording my podcast episodes, but the quality really is incredible.

Lots of good things happening with @RiversidedotFM.This is the platform I use to record my podcast interviews, and have since branched out into video as well. This latest update is terrific news!

It’s an amazing platform. Very engaging while recording and it captures each participants individual audio and video stream locally, which is great for post-editing.

Recording: @RiversidedotFM replaces a set up using zoom + local recording of separate tracks which I had to reconcile.It provides better quality, separate audio tracks and HD video.(If you're using a paying version of Zoom for 1x1 or 1x2 interviews - stop!)

Screen share, separate audio/ video - yes.  Separate tracks for host / guest - coming soon. The founders announced it during the last Townhall. Been using it for PodFest Asia and loving it  , i’ll use it for upcoming Nirvana Tribute Virtual Event too!

The winner by quite a bit: @RiversidedotFM. Great UI, includes video, easy to use, sound quality of the finished recording is , gives you WAV files, screensharing. And it's also cheap for hobbyists. I swear I could use Riverside for video calls.
