Did you ever get frustrated with the stock Sound Recorder app that you get in your android phone, because it does nothing more than record sound? Did you feel like you wanted more options like controlling the quality, adding noise supression and such? Look no further, because with Parrot Voice Recorder you can do much more. A slick user interface and a nice set of features makes this app very easy to record sounds, play your recordings and also share them. To start with, you can select the quality preset (from low to ultra high quality involving customizations to the recording format and sample rate). You can also select a bunch of other settings, like auto pause, gain and effects like noise supression, echo cancellation, etc. I like the Auto Pause feature which when you enable, you get to adjust the minimum sound sensitivity (in percentage) and the silence time threshold (in seconds). So your singing sessions don't need you to manually pause and unpause the recording anymore; the app does it for you. You can even change the gain level manually to your liking or make it automatic. The app has other effects like noise supression and echo cancellation which makes recording sounds a breeze. The recordings have color coded calendar icons that will make it a lot more easier to find your recording. And you can also control play/pause from the notifications.
The app looks simple enough on the outside, but there's more to it in the settings. You can set alerts like vibrate/beeps when you start and/or stop recording. You can give your playback a bass boost or a volume boost and even select a reverb preset. You can choose your which microphone to use for recording and you can even select the channels between mono and stereo. And finally, you can also include your recordings in media scan. After the recording, you will be asked to save the track. There are options to choose what needs to be done after saving, that is if you want to play the recording or share it with others.
I really liked using this app for its rich set of features and clean and beautiful UI. But the one thing I feel this app lacks is widget support. A simple widget on the homescreen would have been useful. But other than that this app is really good and I definitely recommend it for users who do lot of sound recordings.
