Great!

Thanks for sharing with us.

It looks good and has great options.

I have yet to test it more thoroughly, but two early observations:

- having the possibility to save to ext-SD instead of just internal will be a great addition whenever you get to it;

- the widget (tried 3x1 and 2x2) doesn't seem to work properly for me. Tapping it seems to start the recording, but even if I tap it again to pause (or further to restart/restop) and press the checkmark to confirm saving, it only saves an empty 0bite file. I actually have to press the btn to open the app to do my recording...

4.4.4 let me know if logcat would help.

Thanks a bunch anyway and Happy Holidays.

You will be able to select "location of recordings" in next release

I confirmed the widget bug. I hope to fix it soon.

thanks for the reply @LEDUbao.

One more observation if you don't mind... :

After exiting the app, there are still 1 process and one service running. Those are not "cached" (for faster opening later on) they are running ones and last time I checked, use 24MB of ram.

Could you please try to make the app exit properly and kill those when leaving the app?

I know that I could always go in apps settings each time and stop them manually, but that is annoying and kinda froyo-era time and I don't want to go back to tasks killer app use...
?
Cheers.

Thanks @testkeys to point it out. It's certainly the recording service does not stop properly. It may cause battery leak. I will review on this point.

Nice. Timed recording of xx minutes or starting via slate (loud short amplitude) would be nice. Any chance to record to a movie container (e. G. AAC in MOV). This way you could store the time code. Also an option for WAVs...

Please provide a (by default?) option to have the date and time incorporated in the filename. So the recorded file starts with the mask yyyymmdd_hhmm , something like 20151222_0927 . After that prefix add what ever the user whishes to name the recording.

I basically suggest that the filename the user chooses should be placed after that automatically generated prefix.

I would welcome this... Fingers crossed.

Hi @ko3st, There is already an option for this, but it's off by default.

Ver 0.9.4 is out, below are change logs
  • Fix recording via widgets
  • Support to change location of recordings
  • Datetime filename is set to default
Merry Xmas!
and thanks for the new gift.

Just had a quick test and I can confirm that I no longer have issues with widgets and that the app is now closing properly upon exit (no more running service/process); thanks!! (that could've been in changelog also btw)

No ext-SD saving yet, but no biggie there.

Regarding the user interface again:

I like this theme:
a9e7da69cef2ecd94d29eced580f7f0d.jpg

but:
- I find it a little bit redundant to have the exact same functions pressing on the big circle (microphone icon) or the middle square button;
- it will take no time to get used to this, but at first, the two small round buttons' functions was not obvious as their icons are a little on the stealth mode (hard to see);
- it would be nice if the notification recording icon(status bar one) would somehow follow the selected theme's scheme/color accent; I truly prefer stealth look over cyan...
- One last thing: the proper abbreviation for Decibel is "dB" not "Db" (string in skip silence setting)

Thanks again for sharing this with us and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

additional info regarding closing the app (on Android 4.4.4) - 2 scenarios:

- you save your recording and press the back key once or twice to exit: the app is "mainly" closed, but it will still "blip" a 0.2%cpu load (small, I know but...) every 5 seconds or so unless I go in recent apps and swipe it off;

- start a recording, press the back button until you reach the home screen, drag the notification panel down and pause&save the recording from there. Now if you look in your running service/process it will be listed and using anywhere from 3 to 7% of cpu load (constant not short blips like case 1). Same solution again though: have to swipe it off the recent apps to fully close it.

Sorry that I'm not using your other means or issue/feedback reporting; I don't G+ or fb...

You can change output directory from app's Settings

Fixed. No more background service while not recording

Same above

I monitor this thread and there is no issue at all. Please give your feedback here.

There are still some point that did not fix yet. See more in next version.

Thanks @dreinulldrei. There is an option "Draw graphs with decibels" in app's settings. Does that you mean?

No, actually I was suggesting to start recording on a very loud amplitude, e.g. the slate on set (if on the mic of course).

Secondly, attaching a time code to the running recording would be an absolute pro feature. I often record audio alongside video (e.g. interview situation). Although both devices run at the same "speed" (e.g. audio being recorded at 48KHz), sample clocks can drift and recording hiccups etc. can occur. Recording a timecode with a specified fps, e.g. 23.98, 24, 25 or 29.97 (with e.g. the option to record the time code in free run (which means it's synced to the real-time clock and recording at 14h23m4s would start with a timecode of 14:23:04)) would just be nice...

@dreinulldrei: ver 0.9.8 already supports .mp4 output with recording time on screen. I hope you will have time to test it and give us more feedback.

    Very good recorder! Tested it on Samsung Galaxy Note 2.
    Mede a little video of its functionality and interface:
    Posted your app on my site: http://www.ppccabfiles.ru/recordr-sound-recorder-pro
    Also posted on forum of 4pda.ru (biggest specialized forum in Russia): http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=717689
    Hope it will give some promotion!
    My best regards!
