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.
✔ Record in high or low quality, in background and with pause function (.wav)
✔ backwards/fast-forward during a recording as on your dictation machine (.wav)
✔ Record by Widget
✔ Send, rename and delete recordings
✔ "Fast" Send, now with custom mail recipients
✔ upload to Dropbox, FTP (needs additional apps)
✔ Choose recordings as ringtone
✔ Cut recordings (only wav)
✔ Repair recordings (fix header information of wav-files)
✔ Samplerate and -format can be configured in the settings (working modes may vary from device to device)
✔ ...and much more!
Recordings are stored on the SD card (in folder "tapeatalk_records").

Fantastic app. Love it. However one needed addition is a sync to the cloud. Just lost a number of recordings from a phone I traded in. My fault, but no reason this shouldn't sync to my Google Drive! Change that, and you have five stars from me!
Grade 4 is the best among the rest yes
On Note 2, and oh gosh - it could be the ultimate REC app - but I Force Close every 2 or 3 recordings saying my SD card does not allow it access. I could try'n live with it. Oh I can't
love the app. does everything it says it does and more. it's a good little app. you wont regret downloading this app plain and simple.

It records on calls exactly what I want it to do
