The app is intended for automatic call recording from the phone line where supported by hardware and kernel.

Root access is a must for many phones, as manufacturers often won’t implement the required functionality.

There are 4 recording methods:
- Standard API
- CAF (root required)
- ALSA (root requried)
- Kernel (root required)

Standard API - method which doesn’t require root access. Check out every audio source before using. Many phones support recording using this method, from the microphone only (audio source “Microphone” should be selected).

CAF and ALSA - both methods require root access. Device settings in settings → recording are very important here. If your phone isn’t listed, select a device which has the same chipset as yours. The main difference between CAF and ALSA is that CAF doesn’t require ALSA installation, and supports more functions.

Kernel - recording method for phones based on old chipsets by Qualcomm; root is required. This method doesn’t guarantee 2 way call recording.

Which recording method is better?
Neither recording method can ensure that your calls will be recorded from the line; this is phone-specific. And you have to try and find out the one that fits your phone if it’s not auto-detected.

    Love the simplicity of this app and very useful when running a small business, however it is almost useless cause it will not work properly with my bluetooth. I use an LG Tone headset connected to my Galaxy Note 2 and it only records one side of the conversation. If this is fixed I will bump to 5 star for sure

    I tried and tried, every "free" call recorder. None worked with my bluetooth headset. This is the only call recorder that works. OK $9.95 see s a bit steep, but hey it works!! And if you need to record your conversations, it's worth it :-) P.S. It only works on the bluetooth for recording both sides of the conversation. Playback seems to only work via mobile speaker , ergo only 4 stars:-(

    Dupa upgrade la KK 4.4.2 nu mai salva înregistrările pe cardul extern. I-am scris dezvoltatorului, care mi-a recomandat SDFix, iar acum totul merge perfect.

    Could hear good both sides. But I'd be happy if you could raise a little the my volume (the line out / microphone). In general, it would be great if the user could control the line out and line in volumes independently.
