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.

Been using it for years and it does the trick. Optimal solution for me. Local recording (ie private), free and also simple and effective for note taking and even meeting audio capture (don't expect high quality sound from your phones microphone, but maybe you'll get lucky) Secret audio recordings.. huh? Yea? I'll be honest I've used it for that. Hit record, put in pocket or on the table, and save the conversation. It wasn't for nefarious purposes, come on now. Thanks to those who made this app!

Seems like it attempts to record but it you would have to be screaming at the top of your lungs as with the other party to hear anything, even then I wouldn't imagine you would hear anything. I've tried this all morning, it just doesn't work. The app's broken, don't waste your time on this app if you need a recording, you can't hear anything that was recorded and doesn't matter how long you leave it recording, it just stops. I'm watching my phone, says recording but the recorder doesn't work

Only used for a couple minutes but it's exactly what I was looking for. Doesn't stop recording itself so I can think before I speak without having it shut off. Stops recording while I'm thinking. Sweet. has pause so I can talk to someone without breaking up my recording. Folder names+structure so I can organize topics. Quick share for distribution & backup. Very thoughtful engineering thank you
