About this app

Echo is a simple audio recorder with instant playback. Now with optional echo voice effect. To make a recording just hold the record button, release it and hear it played back.

Once you've made a recording you can play it back as much as you'd like. Hit replay while a recording is already playing and it will be played again over the top. You can also record while playing, or play while recording. Sonic chaos is guaranteed.

Echo's not just for fun, it's designed to be the quickest and easiest way to hear yourself. It's a mirror for sound: use it to practice speaking a foreign language, voice training, playing music, or giving a speech. Or just have fun recording your friends.

Best of all, Echo is completely ad-free, so you can use it without distraction.

Please note:
* You can now save externally - this is available from the Recordings screen which you can access through the menu. (To save a recording to this screen, simply tap the blue star at the top of the screen after making the recording.)

* Recordings are saved as uncompressed audio - this means they have great sound quality, but the files can be large. (Technically, Echo records 16 bit, 44.1 KHz PCM mono audio - storing 1 minute of audio uses 5.29MB.)

* Sharing of externally saved files is possible (e.g. by attaching to email, messaging apps etc) - we'll be adding sharing directly from the app soon.

I finally found the app that I was searching for! Now I can record someone speaking my practice language, I repeat what they said and then I play back both and compare. Perfect!! I'm still not sure how to use it without a practice partner who speaks my target language. I'll have to use another source of audio coming through a speaker for the pronunciation sample. Edit: please enable file access permission request. I want to save a file to the phone so I can share it. App must request permission

This is the ONLY APP that gives an "instant playback" without having to save the recorded sound, as far as I looked around. Very useful for short practices of singing, speech, etc, where you want to say/sing something short, listen immediately to what you have said, and try to do it better. Those who want to record something long in order to listen later should use something else. It's not the sales point of this app. I wish there was a mac version of this. Please make one !

Thanks for the review - it's always nice to hear of someone using it for what we had in mind when we first built the app :) (Re: building a Mac version - unfortunately Apple require you to have a Mac device to build for iOS and charge developers an annual fee to make the app available, not great economics for a free and ad free app!)
