Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

User's Reivew

1 ★This was my go-to recording app for years before I switched to my Pixel 3a. Now the app is unfortunately useless. It almost always pauses a recording part way through, it almost always refuses to save recordings once finished, and on the few occasions when neither of those two issues occur, the saved recordings have incorrect recording length timestamps in their metadata; a recording might report as being 3 minutes long when in fact the recording will playback for 4 mins. Really bizarre.
2 ★while recording something very important to me, i went to answer the door, came back & recorder had just stopped. long 12 minute pauses, then nothing. not the worst ive tried, but needs work. thanks.
3 ★This app is simple and interface is good. Missing some features like maximum 32 bit floating audio and 192kHz sampling rate. It is necessary for professional recording. Try to add these features.
3 ★After making a recording the transcribe option goes to a new screen that reads choose a plan. There are no plans the screen is blank. Recording feature is as good as any other audio recording app.
4 ★good audio quality, nice clean interface. sometimes it loses the recordings, but actually they are available in the common storage (if you chosed to save them there). just reset the app and they will reappear. Moreover, it would be better to disable the buttons in the notification area, otherwise you risk to stop recording by accident.
5 ★this app works great on my android and i use it alot! sad to know that this app will be discontinued on september 30th. this app is the best recording app! the quality and the sound are really perfect. hope they're change their mind.
4 ★This is an amazing app. But there is a bug that doesn't let users record in "High Quality (AAC)" mode on Pixel 3 with Android Pie that behaves as follows: when you stop recording, it shows an error message "ERROR: Could not save file", so the recording is lost. Please fix that bug! Otherwise this app deserves 5 stars.
5 ★The quality of sound I am able to achieve with this is just eerily good sometimes, considering that it makes use of a single tiny onboard phone microphone. Add to that the absence of ads after a completely free install! Although the app is not very rich in features such as setting recording interval or muting other sound sources in the phone for the time of recording, the sound quality keeps me from looking elsewhere.
4 ★The recorder is great. I use it frequently. Just wish it could be changed to MP3 format for uploading without going through a converter. And do not use the transcription service, as it's not even close to accurate and the price is rediculous for what I received. It would have taken less time for me to type it out myself as opposed to fixing the mess they sent me!!!! So mad and unhappy!
5 ★Sir you are really doing a great work. To read a book and to summarise it(both audio and written format), is not an easy work. But your dedication is really appreciable. So thanks a lot...
3 ★Requires access to my phone, even if i don't want to record calls. Kicks off a prompt before I can record any audio, and then forces closed off I don't allow the permission.
1 ★If I could give it 0 stars I would. It is probably the worst recording app I have ever used. I spent half an hour recording some important textand when I try to access it 1 months later it seems to have deleted everything that I spent time recording. Why make it so difficult for us to do basic tasks? This is an absolutely appalling app and it deserves to be blacklisted. TOTAL rubbish.
