Background Sound Recorder v2.18

вњ“ Two recording modes: 1) Microphone recording 2) Phone call recording

вњ“ Very high maximum sound quality: can be set up to record at 48KHz

вњ“ Wide choice of optimized sound quality settings: from the most efficient to the most detailed

вњ“ Can record phone calls from the microphone to bypass the Android 6.0 restriction of the VOICE_CALL audio source

вњ“ Other sound recording apps will not work with other phone call recording apps because on Android, only one app can record something at a particular moment. Thus, it’s best to use one app for calls and microphone recordings. The app will yield the audio subsystem to phone call recording when a call is made, and return to microphone recording when it’s done

вњ“ Can record while the app is in the background, you can pretend that you aren’t recording anything

вњ“ Will automatically upload the recorded files to your preferred cloud storage:
++ Google Drive
++ Dropbox
++ FTP

вњ“ Can offload the recorded files to an SD card

вњ“ Starts on system reboot, continues recording (if started during the previous run)

вњ“ Saves space: can be set up to remove the oldest recordings if the total size exceeds a maximum

вњ“ Can record to the app’s private folder or to the common storage

вњ“ Record by schedule: time of day, days of the week

вњ“ No intricate procedures to start and stop recording: just open the app and click the appropriate button

вњ“ No accidental recording or accidental failure to record!

Problem: BSR records for a few hours in background, then stops.
Solution: Check your phone's power saving settings. Make sure the BSR app is "protected" and is allowed to work in the background indefinitely.

Problem: BSR doesn't start up when I reboot the phone.
Solution: Make sure that you had started the recording before you turned off the phone. Check if BSR can be found in the list of running apps (Developers' Options) after startup (without clicking the BSR icon). Check your phone's settings for "optimizations" that might block apps from running on startup. Try making the BSR app "protected".

Problem: Very bad sound quality even on highest settings
Solution: Make sure that your microphone is not obscured. Check if a leather or plastic casing of the phone obscures any of its microphones. Record a short audio speaking or knocking to different parts of your phone to find out where the most sensitive microphones are located. If the mic is on the bottom, put the phone up side down in the pocket so that the mic sticks out. Try an external microphone. Try a different phone, more expensive phones tend to have better microphones.
