About this app

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

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

Since 2012 this app has been installed on more than 40 million devices worldwide and proven to be a reliable everyday tool. From it's early days it has been known as Smart Voice Recorder, rebranded later to a bit more generic name. Because, you know, it's great not only for voice. 🎸

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. For the same purpose, the app will even pause the recording during phone calls, but it can be turned off in the settings. Check your local laws and make sure it works on your handset first.

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 battery
• Recording time limited only by available space on your storage (and tech. limit 2GB per file)
• Straightforward recordings list and many sharing options
• Launcher shortcut to start recording in one tap
• Microphone gain calibration tool.

One of few things labeled "smart" that deserves the name - a "must have" app for me. The visializations let you know its picking up sound even from a distance. The ability to skip silence automatically is probably the best feature, but the ability to set default filenames or include time/date info is great. It's the oldest app on my phone and one of the most consistently useful apps that I continue to turn to for any number of things. Dunno if I paid to remove ads, but worth it either way.

Best recorder app highly recommend!!! This app is so amazing because you can hook up different microphones and change the volume of them. (I think only one microphone works at a time I haven't tried 2 yet) You can also turn off your phone and it will still record! I used this for several of my YouTube videos and it was awesome! You know when you're recording, and it's super easy to share and download. I highly recommend this app!

Consistently useful and the quickest simplest way to get a decent recording of what's happening. Adjust your bit rate as needed. It's not for professional recording, it's just meant to capture the moment as best you can without high-tech equipment. Serves its purpose perfectly.
