Simple Dictaphone

Simple Dictaphone


You want to record a speek and use your phone as a dictaphone? It is possible with this application! A real pocket audio recorder (dictaphone), free and easy to use!

You just click on "Record !" and go!

If you want a more comprehensive program, there are many others on Google Play. It is designed to do its job, but do it well. Please leave a rate if you like ;)

IMPORTANT: This application is ad-supported by a discreet banner! Buy the premium version if you want to remove the ads and support this application : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=submersivebytes.audiorecorderpremium

Some users seem to have problems to see files with their explorer. I urge you to use another if you can not see anything!

Tested with success on Samsung Galaxy S+ (Android 2.3.6), Galaxy S3 (4.3), Nexus 7 (4.2.1, 4.2.2 & 4.4.2) and HTC Desire Z (2.3.3).

=====================================
Features

- Continuous recording even when the application is running in the background;
- Completely free and wanted easy to use, one click enough to start recording;
- Output a high quality WAV file, by default on /sdcard/records (at choice);
- In case of incoming call, the recording is paused and resumed once the call has ended (at choice) !
- Discreet mode to avoid arousing suspicion (hides the notification by a false appearance)!
- No time limit;
- Displays the elapsed time;
- Integrated File Explorer;
- ZIP Compression and sending of file possible;
- Resumption in case of incident (restores the previous record if he had not ended correctly);
- Sampling of 8000, 16000, 22050 or 44100 Hz (at choice);
- Number of channels: mono or stereo (at choice);
- Select the audio source (microphone or camcorder);
- 16-bit encoding;
- And MUCH more to come!

=====================================
Explanation of required permissions

- "RECORD_AUDIO" : sound recording through the microphone;
- "INTERNET" and "ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" : only to display advertising;

Missed the two essential functions: recording and playing back This applications only purports to record sound - there is no ability to play it back once you record. Even as far as recording goes, it fails completely. Go to the folder where it says it recorded your sound, and there is no file. It does not record and it does not play. I suspect that I just installed some malware disguised as a dictaphone app.
