We’re pleased to say that the Aroundsound Android app has been included in the highly acclaimed Techradar’s round-up of the ‘Best free Android apps for 2019’. The editors called out the simplicity and ease of use of Aroundsound as “a seemingly simple audio recording app with a surprising amount to it“.
It’s a great write up and a great description of our base offering:
“It’s designed to allow you to quickly and easily record any sound with a single tap – be it a conversation, the wind in the trees, or anything else.
Recordings are saved automatically, named based on the time of day, and given a location tag. Tapping on a recording then plays it back. Simple.
You can also adjust the recording quality, pause a recording and continue the same recording later, trim a recording or edit out unimportant parts, and share recordings with people or apps as a web link, so there’s no need for others to have the Aroundsound app or to download a file in order to listen to your recordings.
You can also change the names of your recordings and add bookmarks to important points in them, so you can easily find the key parts later. These bookmarks can even have a note attached. Plus, you can back up your recordings to the cloud, so they’ll never get lost.
There’s a lot here, but most of its stays out of the way, so if you want to stick to the basics you won’t find endless buttons and toggles intruding on the experience.”
It’s worth noting that the Aroundsound Android app has improved even further since this write up, with the following additions:
- Collections – add sounds to shared collections and invite members to join and add their own sounds, or comment on yours
- Inspirational sounds – see how others are using Aroundsound and find ideas for sounds to record for yourself, or just listen in
- Activities – see all of your sound shares, comments and notifications in one place
