A voice recorder able to record with the screen off if needed.
We all already know that there's an in-built mic in your device, but there aren't many options about recording or storaging recorded files. Tape-a-Talk seems inspired by old hand tape recorders, but with some Android ideas behind.
For example, you can use your device volume keys as if they were rewind and fast forward buttons when you play a file, giving your device that aforementioned retro use; but also you can record something, rename it (because 11-09-08-10-56-10 can be useful, up to a point) and upload it to your Dropbox cloud. As recording a file is self explanatory, once you've ended try to long click a file to see all the available options.
Two more points to highlight: the sensible option of recording in background and having the screen on or off; and the possibility of setting a recording as a ringtone (not so sensible but fun instead, though). Beyond these, there are the expected options about sound quality and so on. Everything's saved on your SD card.
In conclusion, a well thought off app, useful and that invites you to use it. This PRO version adds some nice features such as widget, the lack of ads, the big button, etc.
✔ FREE OF ADS
Before buying, try the ad supported version called "Tape-a-Talk Voice Recorder". You are responsible for checking whether the app will work on your phone or not (by testing the free version), otherwise you possibly spend your money and find out it does not work.
Other than the obvious ones, this app needs the permission to read the phone state for recognizing incoming calls and stopping the playback of files during an incoming call.

Just wondering. I have the tape-a-talk free version. Its great, does what it is suppose to do but it has advertisments on it. Does that take up any data from my data plan?
This app sucks...I just lost an hour of lecture audio for my bio exam and now I don't have it...I will make sure I tell everyone I know to avoid this application.
Won't let me restart after pause . cut buttons do nothing --when i press both show 00.00. i haven'ttried other features yet bcx i'm soo frustrated. i used. free version, it was worse, so i got paid version it was only 2% better. i could pause. i have galaxy s phone. creator please inform me how can i make this work??
I am using a pro version, its Custom Directory is horrible even. I chose it it keep saving in an internal device memory. I tried maple different ways to overcome the issue but out of luck. If it is fixed I will edit my review. Thanks.
Used it for 5 years.
It works so good i wan t to ask the developers kindly for a qick start for recording. Instead of opening the apps and pressing the record button and wait untill it starts. How helpful it ll be just to press a qrec link and recording goes instantly. Thx
This was working really nicely for me as a way to quickly capture ideas (I'm a musician) but after updating my phone (an Xperia T) to android 4.3 I've hit crackly recording. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling so far but to no avail.
