Free and easy to use audio recorder for Android. It has been specifically designed for high-quality and long-time recording with a clean and simple user interface.

With a skipping silence on-the-fly feature you can shorten recordings by omitting relative silence. It allows you, for example, to catch night sleep talks or maybe some snoring, whatever comes first. 😴 It is by the way how the idea to make this app was born: my wife wanted to prove that I talk at night. It turns out, I do. 🤔

Since 2012 this app has been installed on more than 40 million devices worldwide and proven to be a reliable everyday tool. From it's early days it has been known as Smart Voice Recorder, rebranded later to a bit more generic name. Because, you know, it's great not only for voice. 🎸

Following are the great examples of how Smart Recorder can be useful for you, as noted by our wonderful users: 🥰

"I use this app frequently to record brief notes to myself for my research. It is easy to use and reliable."

"As a college student, this has been awesome! Record the whole lecture and take notes later!"

"Great app! Easy to use, record and playback as well as options to upload recordings to SoundCloud or share files…"

"Very useful to monitor our dog, how much he barks when he is alone at home…"

"…Used it in the office for presentation prep and personal speeches."

"Love the 'skip silence' feature, it is very useful for checking sleep talk."

"Great for my quick song ideas."

"For a person who has hearing problems like me, this is a perfect app. Thank you!"

"…Even with my phone in my pocket recording a lecture, the audio is clear."

"Very good quick recording app for my acoustic guitar ideas!"

And a bonus one:
"Very good for ghost haunting…" 👻

Regarding phone calls: 📲
This app is not designed explicitly for recording phone calls. Some manufacturers block the ability to record the other party of a phone call for privacy or legal reasons. For the same purpose, the app will even pause recording during phone calls, but it can be turned off in the settings. Check your local laws and make sure it works on your handset first.

More features:
• Automatic and manual sensitivity control for Skip silence mode (Beta)
• Live audio spectrum analyzer
• Wave/PCM encoding with adjustable sample rate (8-44 kHz)
• Recording in the background (even when a display is off)
• Save/pause/resume/cancel recording process control
• Efficient and easy on battery
• Recording time limited only by available space on your storage (and tech. limit 2GB per file)
• Straightforward recordings list and many sharing options
• Launcher shortcut to start recording in one tap
• Microphone gain calibration tool.
