Default [APP] Membrain Recorder-[R]-04/04/11-[V]-0.9 (BETA)

Name: Membrain Audio Recorder

Description:
Hey guys, this is my first foray into Windows Phone app development. This program originally debuted at the PennApps Mobile competition at the University of Pennsylvania. A lot of people thought it was a very neat concept so my partner and I decided to put it on the marketplace in case anybody finds it useful.

Membrain is a ďsmartĒ audio recorder application which only saves what you want it to hear. It offers two main advantages to the competition: the addition of a "set and forget" mode, and the ability to sync your files to your Dropbox account.

Membrain works by taking calibrating to the ambient audio level and only recording when it detects noise above that threshold. Itís perfect for times when you donít have the ability to repeatedly press the stop and record button. For example, just set it before you go to bed, place your phone next to your bed, and listen to anything you said in your sleep the next morning!

Even better: if you ever need to move these recordings from off your phone, Dropbox integration is provided for uploading your recordings.

To use it, simply press the "listen" button (the ear) and let the program calibrate to the current noise level. Then, press the listen button again and you're good to go. There will be a red circle next to the volume bar if the noise level goes above the threshold to indicate that the app is currently recording. Hit stop when you want the listening to end. If you upload a file and don't find it in your dropbox account folder, try pressing the button again (we're currently working to track down why this happens).

Thanks for the heads up bennyj71. The link was working last night but it seems like there's something going on with our app listing in the marketplace. I'm going to see if I can fix it, but in the meantime, if you search "membrain app" on your phone, it should be the first result that comes up.

Thanks for the feedback benny. I just tested the app and unfortunately I can't seem to reproduce your issue. If it's not too much trouble, could you describe how you noticed the recording under the lock screen wasn't working, and what kind of phone do you have?

Thank you!

I started recording. The screen timed out. I kept talking. Once I finished I turned on the screen. When I replayed the recording, nothing I said when the screen timed out was recorded. I've tried three other recording apps. They had this issue as well, it was fixed in various updates.

Thanks so much for the info! Yep, I had the exact same issue when I let the screen timeout. In addition to fixing the dropbox indicator, I'll tackle this problem for the next update. In the meantime, if you manually hit the "lock screen" button, the recorder should stay active.

(PS: Sorry for the late response, was at a hackathon this weekend and didn't have much time to check the boards.)
