    This app works. Simple, and it works. I looked for another app with noise reduction but this is the only one I could find. Thanks dev!

    Final solution which I love requires purchase of EasyVoice Recorder Pro and ClearRecord Pro. I record with EasyRecord adjusting the drop level on a per recording basis, but permanently change the default save location to the ClearRecord directory, I then use ClearRecord to playback at 1.5x speed. If I am doing notes, I use EasyRecord to listen because the playback button has more control. Cl

    Used this for years and I still love it. Works fantastically for interviews, recording class lectures, and musical performances. Great quality, noise reduction, and overall performance. Every voice recording (and even live music sets) are clear and wonderful quality. Highly recommend.

    Worked for a while and then now it will not record. Opens but when asked to record I get an internal error message 100% of the time. Uninstalled and installed many times. Galaxy S III. To bad, it was a great app and the most I have ever spend but alas it is kapot unless they push through an undate and fix. I would suggest walking away from this if you have the Galaxy S III. Darn. Al
