I like the app but room for improvement I like the app but i think its lacking some basic functions that might be really handy to alot of people. How about ability to change recording time from 1 hour to 3 or 6 or 12 hours. Auto save up to 12 hours if not accessed within 24 hours over write the files. Auto upload of files to the likes of dropbox. Choosing recording quality and file type would be good too and specifying what folder to store files in. With micro sd cards being so affordable and phones so powerful now all this is possible :)
Never Leave Home Without I just wanted to add a line to my original post. To those fellow users who are reporting empty files/folder I too was getting similar results and finially realized that a memory cleaner and battery optmizer program would empty out the files and leave empty folders behind. After telling the program to leave alibi alone the issue vanished. Stable & lightweight enough for all day use. Yes it would be nice to have video & audio saved on the same file but even so a program that makes my must have list.
Needs work edit The idea is good but it needs fine tuning . It saves 2.8mb jpg single frame pictures with color bars instead of video. A setting to email the files when they are saved would be nice. That way you have a copy when you get home, even if phone is lost, confiscated or smashed. Galaxy S4. Edit------Now May 2016 and this still doesn't work.
Abandonware sadly still the only option There are some serious issues with Alibi, not the least that it does not autostart which means that you have no evidence at all if you forget to start it after a reboot (and who remembers that?). With no updates for almost 18 months, it also seems to be abandonware. Nevertheless, in the absence of any competition, still the only option around -- hence the three stars.
Unreliable, won't stop taking photos Often will only save 3 seconds of audio. Even when told not to save photos the app still activates phones flash at random intervals. There is a real need for this app, if only it worked properly.
This app proved a *very* bitter disappointment today when, after recording a hit-and-run accident I was involved in proceeded to create itself a 12-minute gap in audio data, during which I announced the license plate of the person who basically ran me over with his vehicle (while I was on a bike), leaving me with a broken bike and injuries at the scene! Why can't this app ever seem to work when it needs to most???
