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.

    It seemed to record fine. Simple and Easy. However, some of the recordings had not recorded. [playback was one second, on a 30 second recording] whilst others would not playback at all. I found it useless, irritating, and it didnt work.

    Loved it until it came to transferring the recorded files to my computer. They're on my phone and not on the SD card so all I can do is play them back on my phone. Disappointed about this.

    I spoke too soon about this app. I downloaded my first recording and was unable to play. After trying multiple options to upload it and failing, I was at my wits end and noticed that there was a "repair" option. Once I hit that, I left the default options and pressed repair. My recording then worked. I have since recorded about six more recordings and all were fine. I'm also able to use it to Blue

    Exactly what I need. Just wish I could change the names of my recordings
