You record something and then you try to put it on your computer to save it and play it and share it and well that just doesn't happen. Its not readily apparent how the recording can be played or utilized in any way outside of the phone.

Jerry Buxton

More uses than you might think I have used this app for a couple of years when I am mobile, for amateur radio. It is great for logging and hears the call signs and even captures the whole QSO very well if you like, and the file timestamp gets the QSO end time. I just say the frequency when I'm done and hit the FINISH button!

Tammy A

Good enough I like that i can run this in the background while i do other things & open other apps. Recording is clear. I have not tried uploading to computer yet but sharing the file is not difficult.

Gary and Eva Hancock

Saves me much embarrassment I never have my phone go off in meetings anymore! I like it so much that I bought it! I've only bought two apps and this is one of them!

Markeela White

Smart Voice I use this app to record myself reading through long chapters in my history books. I listen to the recordings at lunch while at work. I like this app because of the skip silent option and because it can be paused. Thanks a bunch creator person(s).

Jeanne Cheung

New phone and still the best Best recording app out there. My mic is crap but this app allows me to adjust the mic gain factor which is great. Thanks so much for making this available!

Vanessa Arnold

Does what it needs to do. I record lectures and the recordings have turned out rather well. I haven't had great luck with the "skill silences" option, but other than that it's been good

Jefry Firdaus

Cool apps Clear voice recorded..easy to use but too bad since kitkat i cant save external sdcard again

Josh Saenz

Give yourself a pat on the back bro. You can record AND play an instrumental at the same time. I tried many others but stopped recording or stopped playing the music. ONLY app that does both and leaves it as WAV. And its Free. Thank you citizen!


Amazing as Journalist I'm a journalism student and use this app for all my interviews and what not. Never let me down! Always works and does a great job capturing audio in crowded busy environment!

Sean Dent

Best recorder app It's simple and really works well. Lots of nice features. I can't fault it. It does everything I want in a recorder......... Is there not a way for apps to know I already rated you on playstore and stop nagging me to do it again?

Ryan Lynch

Helpful for studying So far so good. Really easy to use. I haven't transferred to a computer yet but I'm looking to do that and maybe even create a situation where I and my other classmates study together.

Declan Curtis

Didn't work Made a few calls nothing happens just recorded silence...... adjusted the mic and so on..... no good.. Samsung galaxy Mega.

katrina moore

Easy to use I like this app because it's simple to use. Hit the record button and off you go. Hit the finish button and it stops recording. It can't get anymore simple than that.

Austin Hodgens

Simple recording device that works This works great with my galaxy tab s. While of course my tablet might not win in any contest for a studio condenser mic, I'm confident that at high sample settings this app would be great in a silent rooms for light podcasting or notes.

benli wu

A big help for me I had issue with my tenant and this app just saved me by recording all her harassments. Thanks!

Clark Gaylord

Good app, needs some work As a sound recorder it works well, but the app will keep recording and not quit cleanly. With some attention to details, will be much better.

Super Mario

Awesome, crystal clear My moto e doesnt have the smoothest voice recordings, but this is really clear. So when I want to make let's plays for YouTube, I would use my phone as a makeshift microphone, then email it to my computer. Awesome.

A Google User

It's great But, in my old phone, I could playback the recordings with the screen off. My new phone isn't letting me do that. Is this a phone issue or an update?

Anand Kumar

Good app It records some of noise too but does the work for me. I like using it. I recorded some of my song with it and shared with friends. They like it. Good app.

Joe Godley

No complaints Sometimes I need to record a song idea in case I'm too far from a computer or maybe too far from home to grab the right instrument, but regardless... this app is phenomenal. 5 stars EASILY. Even if there's a fire.

Patricia Lane

Good quality recording I like the fact it has the skip silence feature, I just wish it had a noise cancellation feature as well as the ability to edit the recording in the app before you save it. If it had those features it would be a 5 star recording app..

Khoa Le

Simply the best! I record my classes everyday with this app and i am very satisfied with the recordings. Audio quality is good, the interface is follproof, you can pause the recording, and it never crashes. Using the rename function keeps your recordings organized and files are easily transferable to a computer. Love it!

eric warncke

Best voice recorder I use this to record music demos. This even works when the app is running in the background. I can record music from the internet. Or during a phone call. Its amazing and simple.

Ella Doolittle

Pretty Good Three things I would fix about this app. The amount of time it holds (I've recorded 2 hours and its counting my 20 min recording as an hour so I'm running out of room). Secondly I would make the rewind better, I try to back up to catch the last sentence but it won't back up a few seconds or minutes, it backs WAY to far back and I'm having to listen to my lecture over and over again. And the third thing is, it will not let me email recordings over 10 minutes and my lectures are between 20-40 minutes a piece.

Brad Smith

Great app I love the fact that you can turn up the gain so you can record someone talking it picks it up great. Then you can use it just to record notes as well very helpful

Kevin O'Toole

Smart Voice Recorder This app has faithfully preserved for posterity, countless otherwise irretrievable, patently obvious and or irrational epiphanies the stripe of which were heretofore completely wasted on empty space, pets, family and friends as well as random other unfortunates to numerous to redress without the further aid of just such a recorder as this very one which is indeed "Smart" enough to flawlessly recount to me every pearl utterance I have ever blessed it with ...Oh S _ _ t ! Has it been on this whole time?!...

Lisa Wood

Good sound quality and simple to use. Have not tried transferring files yet but easy to use for playback.

Aisyah Nur Afianti

Thank you This apps just saved my life! Am looking forward to your upgrades maybe clearer sound?

Teodor Tanase

Audio quality is excellent Plugged phone into amp with aux cable after recording and the quality is impeccable. Really surprised me.


Fantastic recording app My samsung s5 came with a standard cheesy recording app. Besides an ad flashing on the screen this app works famously. Quality sound playback. I record my guitar tracks with it.

Amelia Rousseau

Share button will not work I absolutely can not get the recordings off of my phone. It won't email, mms, bluetooth, upload to google drive or drop box. NOTHING. Need to send them to a friend! Help! please fix this!!

Daim Hafizy

Thanks for the recovery function I was recording something really important then suddenly my phone reboot itself. But, I still can get the recorded audio after that.

Giuseppa Aliperti

Great for class. I am a grad school student and this app is great for recording my lessons. It can pick up on someone asking a question from the other side of class. I can hear my whole lesson over again as clearly as when I was in class. I highly recommend it

Tor Saxberg

Basic, quick, but improvable You can hear a click where the recorder was paused. Recordings are too quiet. Folders would improve organization. You can't split and merge recordings. The playback screen needs to change (precision playing is difficult). The"skip silence" feature is a clever idea, but it skips the beginning of each section so the finished recording sounds jumbled and incoherent.

Spank Mini

This App...Best for Voice recordings! Helps me alot to go deep through my voice notes to judge myself. Comparatively best suitable app for recording. Others are quite useless types. Thanks smart recording team :)

Jcbrncoe Vyskov

Handy & Intuitive Suitable to record various sources: from semi-professional musicians to engines' noise levels.

Jesse French

Simple, solid, sounds good This app does everything I need it to do. I use it to record journal entries and capture musical ideas on acoustic guitar. It starts up quick, and doesn't get in the way. I can easily share the finished recordings via email or Dropbox (or a ton of other methods). Get it!

Elizabeth Yankee

Terrible Spoke for 2hrs with recording both on speaker and without, both produced high quality for me but my client could not be heard as if they were whispering. This was a was of time.

Isaac Chuinard

Recorded ther4 I am I'm studying physics and by recording each chapter, I can now listen while I'm driving my Beamer to the golf course to get my morning coffee while my mistress is cheating on me with my wife.

Frank Lessary

Smart voice If this app could go back into your recording and edit things before sharing I would definitely give this a five star. other than that there is no hiccups whatsoever , even in the construction field and you can still hear my voice loud and clear.

Fredrik Bergelin

Doesn't seem to work on note 4 The automatic silence remover thinks it's dead silent always and doesn't record at all unless it's unchecked. I see nothing happening in the sound bars in the main screen, but sound is recorded while the silence remover is turned off. This makes the app just like any other and thus nothing special.

Wang Irene

Sometimes it misses something,my daughter read a story ,it just record a part of it,but I read a same story ,it recorded the whole story. maybe I use the function of skip silence.

Susan Cooke

Pay to remove ads?? Don't waste your money! You pay for what you think will remove ads, but after a few hours the ads come back. Total ripoff

B J Lawson

No fuss start up! I have been recording the babbling of my 1st grandchild with this. Since u never know when she's going to give her stuffed animals a good talking to-I just keep my phone close by & all I have to do is hit record button! Sometimes she just babbles at the screen w the green equilizer bars & big red record button! I love it!

Sheikh Owais

Needs little more work The auto gain control isn't that effective and it lacks an option to manually choose how much we'd like to amplify the Gain Factor. Rest, works like a charm!

Carrie Beauto

Would love it even more if... It would back up to an account. That way, I wouldn't lose a recording I had not yet saved elsewhere. Now that I'd pay for.

Camilo Pefaur

Sucks Not ONE recording without having "skipped portions". You press play and every 1,5seconds it " deletes" like a quarter of a second. Truly the worst app out there. I'll better reinstall others that work properly.

Felipe Lopez

This is a great I am a graduate from the audio engineering industry. Now am studying digital film. Know as a current student it it's hard to and expensive to buy audio and film equipment but the app gets the job done great.

Kent Jones

Very useful! Used it in college to record lectures. You must turn the quality up to its highest to make a really clear audio, but this has been an incredibly useful app. I've even used it to record my phone conversations.

Joan Stauffer

Perfect for the job Works great. My notes for work have become infinitely less difficult now that I can speak them using this app. When it comes time to write them out, all I have to do is transcribe them.

Michael Spreigl

Note 3 I can't record phone calls. And this came up for that topic. Only records your voice

Katharae Patterson

Useful and fun This app has helped me with my school work and for simple everyday things as well. I often use it to record things like a shopping list or ideas too. I'm glad I made the choice to get it.

Beautiful Hill

I love it#me It was awsome me and my sister sana/bon bon love fnaf and we record fnaf memes.It like a mike that doesn't have a cord beautiful/mangle;)

Andrea Nichols Thomas

It'd gtest I had throat surgery and could not talk for two weeks....seriously. I have no children however I do have two dogs that I adore...I recorded several commands and everyday saying I use and I communicated to them that way. This app was a perfect way for me to keep my babies tails wagging. Thank you so very much

Michelle Wetherbee

Does an OK job. When i record a meeting or something, it's perfect and does what I need. But if you are using it to hear conversations discreetly, it can be very difficult to hear what people are saying if not within 10 feet of the phone. And background noise kills you!!

Jo Kuntz

Perfect for Programming New Thoughts I use this app to record lessons from "A Course in Miracles" as well as new thought patterns I am developing to replace those that are no longer serving my highest good and the highest good of all concerned. It serves my needs well. I would like to know if I can add to a recording. Haven't explored the app enough to figure that out.

Levi Spann

Download This App This is the best mobile recording app in the marketplace. I run several podcasts, and this is the ONLY app I use for all of my field recordings, interviews, etc. The ability to pause and play, skip silences, and adjust rate quality on the fly makes this an essential part of my recording equipment. Stellar job by the developers, I am a life long user!

Francisco P

Records only in .WAV no options for .mp3 or any compressed audio format I gave a 3 out of 5 stars review because it does the job right, however what bothers me on my limited space device is that this application only records in wave (.wav) uncompressed format, there is no options to change to a compressed audio format (.mpe, aac, oog, ect) what a big waste of space to deal with WAV dinosaur files, the only option you have is to change the sample rate from 8 khz through 44.1 khz, 16 khz would be a nice compromise between quality and space when dealimg with .wav files

Joe Sylvester

J.S.L.Y? Can I dream? Can I... ? You have a program I had to search for, and wasn't satisfied 'til I found it. You can record and do whatever at the same time. The functionality, simplicity, and ease of use of this program, and who keeps it(every sense, i.e. employees, programmers editors, etc.)could take me to where i want to be. The World Wide Stage. I'm lovin it!

sun snow

Ve been usin dis app for 3years nw widout any bugs..hapy to hv usd it so long for both personal n profesional samples and stil wud cntinue to..Thanx for the app developer!!

Suraj R

My stock sound recorder Does the job well. I wish there was on option to change the pitch/speed etc during playback, I.e. an option to add effects.

Jason Olshefsky

So far, so good. I like that I can record to [the huge] SD card I have installed rather than the puny internal memory. It also does a nice job generating clean (albeit big) audio files. My intention is to use this as a second audio source for recording instructional videos. One star removed, though, because while the audio is recording, it glitches when the advertisements are loaded. Maybe it's just my (now) old and slow device.

Manny W

Pretty good It does what I need it to do, although I wish it could cut the silence ( galaxy note 4), I can deal with pausing, and restarting during lectures, or me recording myself reading the chapters. I'd pay for more but I'm a poor college kid who has to pay for fall semester, and books... yay... Google drive is op with this ap though. Yay...

Joe Godley

No complaints Sometimes I need to record a song idea in case I'm too far from a computer or maybe too far from home to grab the right instrument, but regardless... this app is phenomenal. 5 stars EASILY. Even if there's a fire.

Rick Mac Gillis

Hey it works! I've never actually seen a real working voice recorder. This software is the first I've found. Nice work. No other devs could get it right.

Robert Stevens

Ouch! Update please! During the soundtrack I was making I noticed the smartvoicerecorder had some slight errors it would skip my vocals and my lyrics would not be very clear during the whole track for example if I said hello my name is robert I would do a playback after recording and only hear myself say hello name robert.

Keith Wadlinton

Won't pick up sound sometimes This has been happening on almost every phone I've ever had, "skip silence" is not selected. Please fix because that makes me have to use other apps sometimes and I prefer this one

KoRn BrEd

No exit button. It works, but I don't like how there's no way to completely exit out of the app. If the app is not running why is there a notification in my bar? I know I can click in the settings to remove the red dot. That's not the point. It's obviously still running in the background which means it's using ram and battery life.

Nithin Raj

Stops after 10 minutes. Plz help The recordings automatically stop after recording 10.40 minutes.. cannot find a setting to change it either.please help and I'll put up 5star. Bought the full version

Andrew Norton

Turbo 2 I've been using this app for years; even on an old Casio G'zOne recently. This app doesn't seem to be able to access my SD card on my new Motorola Droid Turbo 2. Other than that, I still really like this app.

Susan Bertrand

Just takes a little to figure it out It took me a little while to figure out what worked and what didn't. But I finally figured out how to increase the microphone volume/sensitivity.

Lindsey Shine

Easy to use high quality app The skip silence feature is nifty but would be nice if it were a little more sensitive. I like that it can keep recording in the background and you can turn off the icon so it doesn't show that it's on. Another good feature is that you can adjust audio quality, it catches even the smallest sound and the finished recordings are crystal clear. Using this to show my boyfriend how his buddy treats me when he's not around, i can't wait to get it on audio. Big thanks to the people who developed this app ;)

Andy F

Really Nice. For recording conversations and any sounds around you it's great. Very easy to use and sound quality is awesome. I removed the ads for just $1.49. It does record calls (both sides of the conversation) ON SPEAKER perfectly on my Galaxy S7. But it will NOT record when the calls are not on speaker. It does describe that on the company's description of the app, so I appreciate the honesty of the developer. If it recorded calls without speaker on it would be perfect. Dear Smart Mob: I would gladly pay a couple bucks more to be able to upgrade to a version that does that ! Thanks.

Kenneth Corbett

Picks up sound very well. I play my guitar with songs on you tube and record to get new ideas and so my kids can hear my playing after I've kicked the bucket. I wish it had an EQ on input levels and a way to save only a selected start and stop point of what you record. A lot of my playing sucks so I need to cherry pick. Cool free ap--I look for this one on new devices. Thanks developer!

Lewis Hodges

Great quality recording even when playing guitar. Great recording hardware dependent. Simple to record at different bit rates and easy to upload to Google drive/dropbox. Has the essential option to disguise recordings so they don't show up in Google play music. Only problem is the new version doesn't let me choose to save on sd card on Huawei honor 6.

Janis Hughes

Useful and easy I like to make recordings of myself singing snippets of songs I hear and want to remember to look up. Works great for that and other such things. Haven't tried saving any files to my computer but I did try to save a recording as my ringtone but it didn't work even tho it gave me the option to do so.

Shenan Eardly

Just excellent The mic on my m8 was just spot on. People used to ask me if used a condenser and then transfered tracks to my phone. It was that good. But the sound recorder on the one plus one was lacking that quality and I saw that it recorded it at 8khz. I got this and I was glad that increase the gain plus the bit rate up to 44khz which was a huge leap from the stock setting. Just love this thing. Hopefully it won't crash on me. Keep it up you guys hope that we could up higher on the bit rate in the future

Jan Bakke

Almost perfect ..but miss the option to save audio files separately in "Skip silence mode" and/or a date/time log that shows when recordings is activated/deactivated. On my wish list:, but not a must: Graphical display of audio files. Option to play audio files in increased speed. I use other media players for that purpose at the moment. Edit: Storage to Ext SD Card when available would also be great!

sharnika egal

Great app! This app has great recording quality. It doesn't muzzle your voice or make you sound anything but clear and sharp. With this app, I record notes, poetry reminders, song covers, or whatever! Though no matter what it is that I may record, I like knowing that I can feel confident that it will be clear and crisp. Along with helping identify mistakes in my voice or small details the recording may pick up. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.

Chris Moyler

Smart Voice Recorder I have found this app to be very simple and straightforward to use. I use it often for recording talks, but it works just as well for short memos. A word of caution however: positioning of the phone is critical for successful recording. Experimentation is necessary for discovering what your phone's mic can cope with. Don't record something important without doing this check first!! A great little app.

Lacey Nicole

Great App This app is installed on my tablet. My boyfriend talks in his sleep a lot and the things he says are outrageous but he doesn't believe he says them. So, with his permission, we turn on this app and use the "skip silence" feature, which is awesome btw, to record his funny sayings. We listen to the previous nights recording together at bed time and crack up! We both love this app! Thanks!

Casey Lee

Pretty decent The skip silence works good. It's great that you can choose quality. It would be nice if it was more automated. Autostart recording on phone boot. Autosave to Google Drive periodically. It is a wav file so should be able to be played easily. It would be nice to integrate choosing the file type. Thanks devs! **Update** recorded for about 24 hours straight. I have Google drive syncing these and then deleting. Well it uploaded a corrupt temp file and killed the recording. Please integrate auto stop and sync.

Pooventhiren Thiren

Awesome! Great!!! I downloaded few voice recording apps since few days ago. Non of them worked as how as I wanted. At last I found this app,decided to try it & yeah, This is what I was looking for. High quality sound & easy to use. The 1st sound I recorded with this app was my girlfriend's breathing sound meanwhile she fall asleep on the call. While recording, I said I love you to her while she is sleeping &she replied 'I love you more'. Its so nice to hear it. Im glad that I found this app.. thank you! Fantastic !

Jason Mitch

Absolutely LOVE this App! It's conservative it works properly.... it is extremely receptive right down to a whisper. It detects and records my rants from long range around corners and even from other rooms... four comedians Young Writers like myself it's priceless absolutely Irreplaceable the best one I have found not that I need to look anymore this is the best one out there hands-UP! Great thanks to the developer and all who helped make it possible.. Jason M.

Kurt Scherf

Perfect for my needs I needed to conduct one-on-one conversations with members of an organization as part of research we were conducting. This app has been great to use! The audio quality is really good (even interviews conducted in a trade show hall with lots of background noise are clear), and I really line the simplicity of recording, renaming, and saving the audio files. It has really speeded up the time it takes when I go back and transcribe the interviews.

Victoria Carlson

Great Quality I used this app for the first time yesterday to record a lecture for school and the quality turned out amazing! I sat about 6 rows back in my lecture hall and placed my phone on my table to record and it captured everything beautifully! There was no microphone or anything to amplify my professor's voice, but this app still managed to capture everything. I highly recommend this app for students ?

Eamonn Edwardo

My first review was 3 years ago. I said then simply "Awesome App." I don't have much more to add, a lot of apps come and go - this has stayed across 2 phone changes. Just this morning I used it to record my toddler interacting with her grandmother - what a great thing to have for her a years to come. Don't go changing V.R.

Pei Han

It was a fantastic recorder which I used for years. However, I just noticed recently I am no longer able to save the recorded files in the SD card which means I have to constantly move the files to my other device or the phone storage will soon be filled up with those large files. Could have been 5*. but 3* for the reason. HTC M8, Marshmallow

Silk Eotd

I love it! And yes, you can use it to record your phone calls so long as you are using the speakerphone (and make sure your volume is high enough for it to hear the other person.) I just used it to record a call to my bank so that I have proof of what I was told. Love it! I also evernoted the recording just in case I were to lose it on the phone. Make sure you use the "skip silence" feature too! :) I would gladly pay for an app like this!

Angie M

Glory to God the Most High for creating you I just want to say to the human that used their God given intelligence, conscience, and moral ethics for this app kudos. The fact that this app works, even when my screen is locked, has helped me in so many situations. I live in a state that is very rascist but has a one-party consent recording law and the Almighty has allowed me to use this app as a form of protection in many legal situations. I give the Creator of the world's all Glory and the human developer a God blessed you.

Dawn Trygstad

Happy find I needed a voice recorder right then. Searched Google Play and this came up. Worked easily. Allowed me to share recording via email easily. Wish I could save the file to my SD card, but maybe it can and 3 seconds just wasn't long enough for me to instantly know how with no learning curve like everything else I did.


Mint App I got some pretty decent recordings off of this. Also recommend it to anyone who records lectures and also jornalists. High quality throughout. Only one small problem. It tends to skip a little once you play back recordings. It happens 2/10 times so not a big deal. Still worthy of five stars. Good job

New review... I used to love this recorder to the point I rely on it to record my interviews. But now, somehow, I do not know why, it only allows me to record for 15 minutes without any notifications. I find that out when I check my recordings to verify my notes...that my recordings stop in minute 15. My old review: I replace my default voice rec on my cheap chinese made low end android smartphone with this.

Marina J. Haskel

Great app Really awesome. Good quality. I upload my files straight to my Google drive so the files doesn't use up too much space on my phone. Only problem is if you get incoming notifications, you can hear the sound (or buzz if it's on vibrate which actually sounds louder and worse.) Wish it were able to record calls.

Marianne Baker

Pretty good It works and gets the job done, though I haven't been able to get the file off my phone and using rewind and fast-forward is super tricky in this device. If you have a crystal clear recording then transcribing is a breeze, but if you miss a few words and need to play them over good luck! Still. It was free and it works, so I can't complain can I?!

John Harrison

Excellent sound quality I've tried more than a handful of audio recording apps on Android, and this is by far my favourite. It is fast to start when you need it, easy to use, and makes excellent quality recordings. I've used them as soundtracks for video files, taking notes for work, capturing ideas for songs, capturing a baby's first sounds and a number of other things. Smart Voice Recorder has always worked well.

Can't Save Files to SD Card on Android Tablet Really works well! Quite good sound quality. What I liked best is that you can start the recording and then go to the internet or another app and it continues recording. One of the BIG limitations is that files recorded with Sound Recorder for some reason can't be saved to an SD card. I have less than 1 GB of space left on my 4GB tablet because of this. Will have to start deleting my recordings because they cannot be moved to my 32 GB SD card. Location change does not recognize my micro SD card.

Peter Greenrod

The Best app but would like auto file save after silence This is the best app I have found for my use, nice and easy interface but with lots of user options. I would really like the option to auto save file (and continue recording) after a period of silence. You would then end up with lots of files with time stamp (if ticked) that contain any sound recorded...... If that sound could be auto exported then even better. Then it would be my best app. Still 5 Stars in anticipation....just need that extra feature.

michael Millson

Best recording quality! This is BY FAR the best recording app. I'm a producer and recommend for singers to record on the go with apps like this. I've tried them all. If you have trouble with it, that is your fault lol. I had no problems with this app at all. Infact i donated, thanks for making my life in production that bit easier. :) HeadphonesVocal

One major hole Overall very good. I LOVE the "skip silence" feature. However, this app and so many others lack the ability to export/share multiple files at the same time. After a day in the field it really sucks to individually export all 60 sound files. Seems like an easy fix. Allow users to select multiple files from the "recordings" dialogue window.

GO DOWNLOAD IT ASAP This is one of my favoritest apps! It's amazing! It's fantastical! Its definitely one of my top ten. I've never had a problem. I have nothing to complain about. I've used this for years. PEOPLE LISTEN UP! WHATEVER UR REASONS ARE FOR NEEDIN TO RECORD...THIS APP IS#1


I like this app for its clear audio reproduction in low volume situations. It's also easy to see in low light with low screen brightness (great for dark lecture halls). I do wish I could edit a recording as a couple times I've forgotten to push record again and ended up with very long recordings. Either way other apps do that so it's not strictly necessary. It would be nice to be prompted to name a file before recording. But again, it's not necessary to use the app.

Best recorder, except a bug - edited Edit: with galaxy a5, recording is good with 11k sampling. #### Old comment: I am using on galaxy y . Only issue i face is if kept default quality of 11k rate. The recorded audio is not proper and it plays in f ast pace, like cartoon voices.! Fix it and get 5. Thanks for the very useful app with silent recognition!

Michael Bellard

Great Does exactly what I needed. It's a simple app, but the voice quality and other options make it better than expected. Although, I give it 4 stars for placing the ads directly above the recording buttons, with the probable intent to make money off accidental presses. Pretty scummy for an otherwise awesome app. Purchasing the app will remove this issue, but it doesn't change that they've done it to the free edition. That said, for it's quality, I'm happy to have supported the developers with a purchase.

Sheldon Eason

Seems like it'd be great, but... For some reason I can not use the recording as a notification/ringtone for my phone. When I select "set as (notification/ringtone)" it simply switches whatever is selected to silent, and the recording file itself is not selectable from within the ringtone selection menu. I have tried changing the quality, but to no avail.

Aura Kay

What happened? This app used to work really well, but then it started to erase my recordings. When I go to listen to something after a few days, it tells me that there are no recordings, and that sometimes this happens when you unmount the SD card, so I changed the file path to a device folder, and it still did it! What good is a recorder if it erases your recordings?

Donna Lewallen

Love it Can't believe at how well this app works! My other one would've record anymore. I had just a few minutes to download this one and record a very important meeting. The screen would go black do I kept checking it and it was ok. It recorded 90 minutes with no interruptions even when someone called.

John E. Barrett

Best Yet! Being a long time private musician, I finally found a GREAT simple app that does what I want ... JUST RECORD! Hey.. If you're looking for channels and frequency adjustments .. then this app is NOT for you. If a melody just comes out of nowhere now... I use this to remember ideas for melodies and good enough to record rough cut recordings when you and friends are inspired and have a moment of magic. No more losing it! Now I can just push 1 icon and push record. Then name it! If I can use it.. anyone can!

Joseph Carpenter

Early feedback I am evaluating this application for use as a mobile field recorder. The first impression is very good. The silence feature works well in quiet conditions. Not as well when commencing with road noise, but the pause button works fine. I might like to see the pause button a bit larger and moved away from the standard Android buttons to avoid accidental home screen visits when recording. I do also like the ability to force the screen to stay on when the recorder is is foreground.

Karen Fields

Extra convo security.... Even if most recorded conversations aren't admissible unless there is a warrant or all parties sign a consent form. But when you are dealing with sheisty people this app come in handy. Chances are these types never end up in least not the Earthbound kind! You get an electronic record as back up so you're always covered. The only thing I would imorove is the warm up thung....I wish it recorded immediately!

Tony Gingrich

Very useful! Stable, works as expected, and with a very clean, easy to understand UI that meets my own standards for UIX (I'm a developer). This app is direct to its point, and little else. One question: Recording with skipping seems to consistently stop after approx 300 MB of storage is consumed. Possible bug, but also possible user error? Suggestions: The controls at the bottom of the main screen are small and easy to misclick: please enlarge if possible. Summary: nice design, stability, and usability. 5 stars!


Pretty good This free app is definitely worth the download. It's easy to use and has pretty good sound quality. The only thing I had problems with was the skip silence option. This option caused the app to not pick up any noises unless they were extremely loud.

Lana Phillips

Records great but pops open my app store every time I record something Every time I finish recording a bit or sometimes even when I start, my app store opens with some ridiculous candy game along with an advertisement in my browser. Quite annoying.


Simple, red button operation for voice I take notes. And this app is really as good as it gets. No need to snip off .. easy to pause with the red button. I just wish i can get a higher quality recording like 96khz 24-bit !

Jason Denson

I have PTSD and this app only records when I thrash around, talk, or snore. Thank you to the development and thought of this app. It will only start when it detects noise. I have a constant ring in both ears and can only sleep with white noise. The app does not pick up all of the white noise and will only start when I thrash around in bed, talk in my sleep or snore. Great app.

Np Warbry

Worked for the most part then sucked I use it to record my playing Tests for band and sometimes when going over the break on my clarinet it cuts it out. This does not happen on any other recording program that I've used and only this one. It's caused me to lose marks on the tests which is why I use different app

James Marshall

Unable to save to SD card App does not apparently allow you to set the default save folder to your SD card. If your phone space is limited, you will have to use another file program on your phone to physically move each audio file to your SD card. Why can't this app make it easy for me to choose the location of where I want my saved folder?

sensei storm

Can't believe I paid for this crAPP! Lowest sound quality recording app I have used yet. I was in a town-hall meeting for 30 minutes and this app only recorded 3 minutes and 39 seconds of the entire meeting. I had "skip silence" selected. That was not the first time either.


I wanted a simple voice recorder... I got a simple voice recorder. The only reason I've given it 4* is because every now and then it skips a little bit when playing back recordings. If you can sort that little glitch out then I'll gladly give it 5*

Adalfredo Endrizzi

Best recording app I use it in class all the time. Turn it on, turn off the screen on my phone and boom, I can listen to my notes any time I want. Of course I still write notes, sometimes reading them is bothersome so why not listen to them !

Will Helm

Easy and usefull Started using this and it's great! Allows for audio quality adjustment, setting it's file destination, adjusting audio input gain, and recording while the phone is locked so there is no light from the phone. Really easy to use, and you can just tap the screen to start recording. Great for recording your thoughts while you walk and not having to worry about fiddling around to find the "stop record" button. Would recommend.

James Kreuz

Decent But Sound on recordings too soft/often inaudible It does exactly what it has set out to do and does it well. What i like about it is the ability to easily title every recording so you can easily go through later and find the recording for whatever topic you want to listen to. I have only used the silence feature a few times. My big complaint is this: Sound Volume when playing back a recording is too low. Often on max volume I can still BARELY hear the professor speaking or the person's voice, etc. I recorded. It is very frustrating!

Mudit Pandit

Good Good app. We can adjust recording quality according to our requirements. Best thing I liked about this app is that we can disable device's auto gain feature. This feature enables us to record audio without distortion in loud environments.

Gabriel Brady

Used for about 3 years, never needed to look for another voice recording app! This app has been great. It's one of those rare apps that just does exactly what it says it does. The silence skipping works wonderfully and it has worked consistently across three phones Nexus 5, 5X and 6P. Great app, an example to other developers of how to avoid excessive features and clutter. Only thing that would be nice is a visual overhaul to material (Google) design but the functionality is what's important and this is excellent!

Subrata Mukherjee

Automatic silence not working There should be an option to select no silence removal. Auto silence removal is cutting the voice also. Not working for Moto G 4 plus for voice recording.

Emmy Maddala

Cannot trust this. Wouldn't record anything I was in an important call which i wanted to listen to when i was done, this app, doesn't record the entire call...! I'm so angry now...

Keith Ledig

Good but could be great This app would be perfect but the problem i have is that if I start recording then pause, go to another app, I can't use the mic. This app locks the microphone resource. For example I'm not able to use google voice. It fails immediately. I wish this app shared the mic or at least released the resource when not recording. I have to finalize and save. Then I can go to another app and use the mic. Can't resume my recording, I must start a new one. I find this very disruptive in the use of note taking.

Smart Voice Recorder I love Smart Voice Recorder. It's great for creative people for recording ideas. Perfect for poets, songwriters, composers. Ideas don't get lost anymore. I like the skip silence function too. I have recommended it many others.

sher j

Works! The skip silence feature had stopped working for me. Don't know if developers fixed the problem or it was because I reinstalled, but it works perfectly now. Thanks!

Pocohantas Thanks

Easy to you! This app is awesome. Easy to use. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you can't exit the recorder mode while listening and do other functions on the phone. The app has to be open, so multitasking.

Laura Griffiths

Clear and concise Used for radio and tv recordings for my own personal use. I would recommend this app as it picked up everything. It assists with my short term memory loss. Thank you.

Krishna Williams

Works really well for what I'm doing No glitches or complaints. The only reason it's 4 and not 5 Stars is that I've literally only just started using it in anger today! So far so good!

Matthew Daniel

Good until I hit pause During a nearly two hour recording session the audio that was recorded before I hit pause was great, however the audio that was recorded after turning pause off was completely garbled and useless. I was disappointed because the app otherwise was easy to navigate and seemed quite useful.

Autumn Fox

What I needed in a voice recorder. I needed to record myself talking so I could practice public speaking, and also to record the meeting of a small business I am involved with. This did all that and really cut out the dead air when there were lulls, saving me 30 minutes of listening to nothing.

Great for recording music! I use this app to quickly record guitar and bass parts on the fly that I can look back at later, you can adjust the quality setting, goes up to CD disc quality which is really good for a phone app.


One problem... Is it possible to have recordings that are more than 2 gigabytes? I really like the app but that really limits recording time. Especially a higher qualities.

Abdullatif Halwani

Very useful The only thing missing is to let the user have all his recordings under the same account reachable in any device he uses. Same as cloud storage with syncing access.

Rupak Jha

Issue of not showing full length recording Smetimes i record for 2-3 hour but after finish the recording i get to know that only one hour recording has been done although their use to be sufficient internal storage in my phone...i missed very important recording due to this issue...what to do with this issue? Due to this issue this app seems not to be useful now.

Ashim Sanyal

Nice app I am starting to use this app for the very first time. I like it. Good recording quality. I don't know if anyone tried recording conference call over the phone using this app. I tried but did record my voice only.

jerry oneal

Smart recorder is beyond cool, I gets to catch the rude, & indifferent c. Service fruit cakes in the act, red-handed with these r pantalonies showing. As well as, take notes for work & play, gets ta spy on other non-suspecting bad excuses for cool

Brandon Pickens

Still absolutely perfect. Simple, clean, and surprisingly effective for a free app..... almost too effective.... I feel unsafe now..... NSA probably rated this app 5 stars also lol

Aranya Khurana

Amazing app. One of the best out there. This is a wonderful workhorse app on my phone. It allows me to do so much both as a musician and a college student. Records when the screen is off, doesn't crash, good sound quality and a dark UI. Simple and effective. Hats off. Keep up the good work and hope to see more from you guys :)

Inappropriate ads I used this app several times with good results, then suddenly it dumped me to the Play Store advertising random games. When I tried to go back, it opened pornographic ads. My kids were using this app. NOT COOL! I am so disappointed in Google Play!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cecilia Jones

Failed During a concert I used this when my storage space ran out but I still had one hour of audio space on the app and it recorded NOTHING. The file is there but there is absolutely no sound.

BiggA-Vybz The Big Belly Rude Bwoi

Yow it mawddd Great app and helps me record my songs. Give me option to rename, skip silence and share with via social media apps

Jesus Morfin

Records well but.. When I tried to send my first recording (2:55) it cut 25 seconds total out of it...and not 25 straight cut bits and pieces out totalling 25 seconds. Havent ever had an like this issue with other recording apps

Nicholas Tkr

Useless I have skip silence unchecked so there's no reason for it to randomly skip parts of my recordings, yet countless times I've had to do my recordings again because it randomly skipped a few words for no reason.

Adam Carrell

Not compatible with my alarm clock I couldn't get my Galaxy s7 to use it's recordings for my alarm. Otherwise it was okay, but not useful to me.
