What app to use for iPhone Lav Mic?

I've recently taken to using a RØDE SmartLav+ on my old iPhone 5. The batteries last forever on the phone when in Airplane, the size is small enough to fit into a pocket, and the productions I'm using it on don't require the mic to be hidden. It actually sounds pretty decent for the's no Countryman but it works.

I've been using TwistedWave Recorder. It's easy to use and has some nice sharing functions, but it has no built-in limiter. This means that if my talent gets a little excited we get some nasty clipping in the recorded track unless I record a very low volume. I've tried a few other recording apps such as RØDE Rec, GarageBand, and Tascam's PCM Recorder but none of them sound as good or are as easy to use as TW Recorder.

Anyone have experience with something better? Maybe using a limiter in Audiobus and another app that can record from Audiobus?
