Your rating: None Average: 4.9 (41 votes)

Native voice call recorder for SailfishOS. The latest version is 0.7.2.

This application requires SailfishOS >= 2.0.4.

This application is designed for unattended usage. Once properly installed, it records every GSM call you make or receive. The UI application doesn't need to be run to make this happen.

Please refer to the wiki for usage instructions and troubleshooting.

Пожалуйста! Это стало возможным благодаря изменениям, внесённым Jusa Hämäläinen в pulseaudio-modules-droid и вошедшим в update9.

Great application !!!

One more vote from me for option to enable/disable application and possibility to delete selected recordings.

BTW, where are these recordings saved currently ?

For icon, I suggest you to change microphone with a magnetic tape. It would be more intuitive ... I think. :-)

For features you mentioned please monitor this and this. For storage please see the corresponding section in README.

Unfortunately, I'm not very good at icons or graphic design, just pulled together what was found on the internet and looked at least not horrible... :) If you could help in any way, that would be great.

Пока нет, эта возможность появится в среднесрочной перспективе. Пожалуйста, следите за

Awesome! Thank you very much! As a suggestion for the next releases, we should be able to choose if recording is on or off in the UI. :)
