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.

my favorite recording app by far!! I tried a bunch, including at least one that I paid for. Smart Voice Recorder remains the best. My *one* tiny issue is that when you are making a recording, the buttons for 'Save' and 'Cancel' should be further apart, so I don't accidentally brush against my screen in the wrong way and delete an hour-long recording I was in the middle of making. This is a small issue, and it has never actually happened in my time using the app.

I've used this app for years. Was always spectacular for my use case as a musician for recording demos and song ideas. Unfortunately I'm forced into a situation to write this one star review after all of my songs recently doubled in the app. After trying to get rid of the doubled version of the file, I've discovered that the original file is now missing from my device and I can no longer recover the files I've deleted. I'm currently waiting for a response from the developers...

Oof. I've been using this for three years; love the app.but recently, a glitch occurred where it showed my past recordings in double, so I went through to clean up my list of all the assumed duplicates. i realized too late that they weren't true duplicates, so I actually deleted the only copy of some recordings. So yes, some important ideas I wanted to hold onto that are now lost because of this glitch. Just a public PSA in case this is happening to anyone else.
