Works, but some sort of indexing of the audio files is a must-have The app promises 24 hour maintenance-free recording of audio, and delivers that. What it doesn't do is make all that recording useful by helping you find things within the files. Things it could do: Name the file according to the date and time of the recording. Add the files to a database so interesting parts could be flagged (either by the user or by algorithm) and replayed. Produce transcripts of any spoken text in the files. Get the other side of phone conversations.
Great program. Records everything and dumps to dropbox. Nice! Does what it says and is pretty cool to see what new features it might add. .. like being able to Mark events during day. ..
It's a start. Cool idea for an app, but unfortunately I find myself using Lifebox less and less. It just gets annoying to have to open up the Lifebox app and stop recording every time I want to use a different app that uses the cellphone's microphone (for instance, voice transcription for messaging). If Lifebox is recording and you attempt to use an app that uses your cell phone's microphone, the app displays "Can't open microphone". It would be cool if the Lifebox app recording was rooted deeper into android's software so that it would run underneath all the other apps that also use the phone's microphone. This way you wouldn't lose your cell phone's microphone functionality. I'm not sure if this is possible though.
Good idea, but problems When I reinstalled the app, it failed to record anymore.
Nice knowing its all saved This is a pretty cool tool. I like knowing that things are automatically recorded without having to do anything. Would highly recommend.
- Added user agreement message.

- Changed audio format from 3GP to MP4.
- Changed date format to UTC in audio file names.
- Recordings are now excluded from Android backups.
