About this app

Free and easy to use audio recorder for Android, designed for high-quality and long-time recording with a clean and simple user interface.

With a skipping silence on-the-fly feature, recordings could be shortened by omitting relative silence. It allows you, for example, to catch night sleep talks or maybe some snoring, whatever comes first. 😴 By the way, it is how the idea to make this app was born: my spouse wanted to prove that I talk at night. It turns out, I do. 🤔

Since 2012 this app has been installed on more than 50 million devices worldwide and proven to be a reliable everyday tool.

Regarding phone calls: 📲
This app is not designed explicitly for recording phone calls. Some manufacturers block the ability to record the other party of a phone call for privacy or legal reasons. Therefore recordings will be paused during phone calls by default. Remember to be responsible and comply with your local laws.

More features:
• Automatic and manual sensitivity control for Skip silence mode (Beta)
• Live audio spectrum analyzer
• Wave/PCM encoding with adjustable sample rate (8-44 kHz)
• Recording in the background (even when a display is off)
• Save/pause/resume/cancel recording process control
• Efficient and easy on the battery
• Recording time limited only by available storage along with a 2GB limit per file
• Straightforward recordings list and many sharing options
• Launcher shortcut to start recording in one tap
• Microphone gain calibration tool.

I've used this app for more than a few years across many devices. I really have liked it but suddenly I can record but not listen to the recordings through the app. I get an error code of #2000. The audio files do play fine in other apps, and older files still play in the Smart Voice Recorder app. Not certain what has happened for me.

This app used to be alright, but it sure doesn't seem that way now. I recorded some conversations that were extremely important, but the audio came out all crackled and I couldn't understand them (despite having nothing in the area to cause any interference) or special settings. *Also, under the data safety section that says they don't share anything with 3rd parties, well that is INCORRECT. Google, Verizon Media, Integral Ad Science, and Smartadserver tried to track my info. through this app.*

This is the best recording device I've ever had. I've had many now. What I want to say is this if you put the recording device on and then you actually minimize it to the point where you still can see it and then after that you swipe out of it completely. Now nobody can see that the recording is still occurring, which is quite remarkable actually. So now what that means is even if your phone is not turned off or shut down completely. But it's just the screen is blank. Your rec. Is confidential.
