    The app has stopped listing the names of the actual callers. Now it list EVERY call as "UNSAVED" & numbers that are in my contacts are listed as "UNKNOWN." It no longer recognizes the names in my contact list. This began on Wednesday of this week. What did you change? Whatever it was srewed up the app and you need to change it back. Before this change it was a 5-star app. Now it's a 1-star.

  2. Benjamin Neau-avatar

    Benjamin Neau


    Previously rated this 5* but it doesn't work anymore so 2*. For the record, it still saves a recording of the call duration but it fails to record the other party, only me (SGS8 Edge). I'm sad. I loved this software and relented to update it because I feared it would break one day after an update... Mistakenly clicked update once and that was it.

  3. Christopher Savoie-avatar

    Christopher Savoie


    Paid for the app and randomly stopped recording the caller. Now all my recording for months are useless. Can't trust the app anymore. Also, does not record calls shorter than 30 seconds and overlay will bug and might even prevent you from having an incoming call because of that bug. I wish this app worked.

  4. Asghar Khalil-avatar

    Asghar Khalil


    There is no doubt that this app will store in your memory every call made to the mobile phone. You need to turn on the mobile phone speaker to record voice on both sides. Otherwise you will only have your voice recorded. I give this app five stars thanks to the sea

    Wld give more but Google ruined it, doesn't work anymore due to Droid 9.0 screwing ur ability 2 make UR app work. Ev app has this issue besides major 1s; 3rd-party apps that give us needed customization/features can't work anymore. Google's turning Android into iOS clone w/no freedom-they control it all. Disgusting. Claim it's for privacy but we can easily sign waivers2 make them unliable, & let us do as we wish w/OUR phone. They want2 control us, take our data & then not get sued 4 it leaking

    So I guess this is it... It's the end of this app. It used to work fine... but now... no more voice call conversation recording. Only the rocording of me talking to imaginary person on the other side. Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

    it is good app. but here is one problem. outgoing calls are saving without contacts names while incoming calls are saving with contacts names. what is the problem & what is its solution?? Lower to one star as no reply received yet to my problem

    This was a Great App Until it stopped functioning in December all calls now start coming up as "unknown"-which makes it functionally. I previously was a paying and it's unfortunate you say I'm having to find another app to use until this issue is addressed.

  9. Justin Stutler-avatar

    Justin Stutler


    This app sucks. If it worked properly it would be an awesome app and I would give it 5 stars. The floating record/pause button will not go away after the call is ended. If I start a new call, it just keeps adding more of the floating buttons. I have to force stop the app to remove them. And now I am getting an error stating that this app is not compatible with other recording devices or apps...I dont have any other recording apps on my phone so I shouldnt be getting a message for that.

    A good app, and ot records both sides of the conversation which is what I wanted. I understand there are limitations, but I did have an error where it stopped working for a bit, and I couldn't find a way to correct it. It fixed itself after a bit

    There is having an issue for backup when you go to setting tje backup account.. It says that (Black box requires one or more google play service that are not currently available...)

    It works best if you use the phone in the "normal" fashion without speaker phone or car speaker (bluetooth) and such. The quality is still not the best. The audio can be hard to hear but the absolute moment it stopped providing the caller information along with the call I hated it. Also it pops open after every call which I imagine if you pay the monthly fee would happen anymore but I won't be paying a monthly without the caller information being attached to the call as it once was.

  13. I.C. Sezdablindman-avatar

    I.C. Sezdablindman


    (No response to my question lowers to 1 star.) Why does this app pop up after every single phone call??? This is very very annoying. I've looked through the settings and can't find anything that toggles this setting. It's a real nuisance to have to go kill the window that popped up, in spite of the fact that I don't want it to... Do I uninstall it or is there a way to make it not do this?

  14. Bold Girl-avatar

    What an app! I could only hear myself during the calls with my Samsung Galaxy A20. Why is it so hard to get a call record app???

    Left a great review and 5 stars before. Now 2 stars and the following issues: while recording quality is still amazing with this app, I'm experiencing similar issues as other users. Previously, ALL numbers/names were saved, regardless if they were in my contact list. Now ALL calls are saved as unknown. Terrible glitch requiring several extra steps after EVERY call to ensure knowing who/what recorded. Tech support never responds to emails, and responses to reviews are generated. PLEASE FIX!!!

  16. E Bohr-avatar

    E Bohr


    The app was good for a little bit but after an update it seems to list everyone as unknown caller so looking through my call logs trying to find a call is the worst (tried sending the team a message but never got a reply) . Also it records what it can hear from your speakers so you have to have a loud phone call in order to listen to what the person is saying.

  17. Vinay Narra-avatar

    Vinay Narra


    Why it won't save the recording under the contact name. I've to check the call time and then check the recording time and then I've finalise. Ok this is the one. If that saving the recording with contact name is added via update that'd be more effective and the application will be perfect in my view.

  18. VJ C-E-avatar

    VJ C-E


    Could be a great app if... This could be a great app if it 1) saves the number or contact automatically, and 2) records speakerphone conversations as well as bluetooth and regular calls. Should be able to save to cloud, such as Google. Lastly, have the ability to search for a recorded call by name, number, duration, date, etc.

    April 5th was the last time the app was listing contact # information. Since then, it only says unsaved,unknow #. Tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. Still records my voice but the person on the other end is hit and miss. Sometimes it works, most of the time it does not.

    Download and it asked me to have access to thing like contact, photos, media and if it could record audio. You dont need access to what i do you dont need my frinds and family no you cant record my audio. Apps you dont need this info so dont ask for it

    I have been paying for the application for two months, I was hoping it would improve with the payment, but today, it is not heard more than my voice, when I did not pay it, both were heard, I have decided to finish my subscription for that reason .. . It is not good.

    Had ot for almkst a year. The app worked fine at first until recently. While it indeed recorded calls, I wasnt able to hear anything as well as woth saved logs that worked before. Even tried listening to the logs (that used to play) on my laptop but nothing. Very disappointing.

    You can't hear both sides of the conversation unless you recorded your call using speaker phone. I've messaged support a few times with no response. Doesn't help much if you wanted to use it to record private conversations, as the other person talking is so faint that you can't hear what is said

    It was working for a short time but then stopped reliably recording calls. Stopped being able to share recordings. The widget got stuck on my screen even after toggling off the widget, and closing the app. The widget now cannot be moved and is blocking part of my keyboard. Going to have to uninstall.

    Lovely app but after some minutes when device is on from offscreen the app will not work again until you revisit the app. It lacks notification access enabled settings of my Infinix hot 5 mobile phone that should have made it always standby.

    Man kann nichts verstehen. Aufgenommen wurde nur meine eigene Stimme. Bin sehr enttäuscht, dass ich dafür zahle. It only records my voice, not the "conversation partner" on the other end. So basically it's no good. And I am disappointed and annoyed that I have to pay for this.

    Great app! I really don't have 2 worry about it. Turn it on once and from then on it records ur calls without having 2 do anything more. When u finish a call or manually open the app, there's a record of all ur calls 2 listen 2 or delete if u like.

    Not capable of recording the other end of the line. I look through all my settings and gave permission through all the settings which requires for it this app to operate. But still I was not able to hear the other end of the line. This app still needs to tweak out glitches for newer phones and keep up with updating software programs. Don't fall behind!

    Records out going calls only. Severely drains your battery, used up 40% of my battery even if not in active use. An app running in the background and consumes nearly half of your battery without any active work is displaying a behaviour similar to malware. This is the most power hungry app in my phone. Why would it require using so much power? I'm removing this app. I cannot trust an app that behaves like malware in terms of battery use.

    It's simple, easy to use, but it just need to learn to start recording when I hit the Answer button and to stop recording when I touch the Hang Up button. Because I got a call, it didn't record, I hung up then it started recording and it's not stopping. Last week I called someone, they didn't answer, the recording started when his voice mail started, but when I hung up, it kept recording.

    Sometimes you have to uninstall/install or just try your luck with Clear Data/Clear Cache and hope you get lucky and not lose your recordings. Whatever your experience, do not expect any kind of help or feedback from the developers, even with the Lifetime License (which shouldn't make any difference if you care about your product). Looking for an alternative, it's finally time to say goodbye to the $24.

    * Recordings we're vanishing, **FIXED it. * First recording after reboot is corrupt. On my Samsung S9+, recordings to the default save directory ("Black box") to internal storage we're deleting themselves. It appeared to be something like a 'rmdir "Blackbox" & mkdir "Blackbox"' command. After favoriting a call, it stopped. I just wound up changing the recording directory and favoriting a call to fix that. After the phone reboots, the first recording is always corrupt, at least using internal storage and custom directory (I have tried no other settings to test). All other settings are left as default besides those 2. The only thing this app needs is a Whitelist and I'm good (a Whitelist that could also work in conjunction with the widget... for times you want to press record during a whitelisted call?). The Google cloud option is nice, although I haven't used it yet (Samsung cloud doesn't seem to be an option within the app). All in all, this is the lightest and best recording app I've used. Nice work!

    LG G7. Call recording works. I'm really just happy. This app is very simple, but of the 12 I installed it was the only one that actually records the voice of the person on the other end of the phone. All the others just sort of record whatever the mic is picking up and the other person is barely or not at all audible. thanks for a great app.

    It failed to record every outgoing phone call from my phone. It skip calls recording selected calls. When it was most needed it failed. Testing the app once more it was discovered the app is not autosensing when a call is initiated. In order to work with my phone the app have to be initiated manually, meaning it has to be closed and reopened otherwise the second call is not registered even when running in the background. Making a correction, records one and nevere records again. Very poor!!!

  49. alexK661-avatar



    Getting back to this program: I felt an earlier review in which I said it sometimes doesn't record and other times it nevers stops recording and running in the background. While the background running issue didn't appear lately, the recording problem is still ongoing. It only records what I say and not the caller. While this doesn't seem like it happens very often, it seems to always happen when there's a conversation that I need to remember. It makes the app somewhat useless.

  50. dcpadula-avatar



    Samsung Galaxy S8+ People keep saying that it doesn't record the other person's audio - this isn't true. However, the volume of that audio is VERY low in comparison to your own voice on the call so you end up having to turn your volume WAY up when you play it back. It is also true that the call log does not show the name of the caller even if it's stored in your contacts which is a thumbs down, but you can always match the recording time to a record on your phone bill if you need to correlate the two for legal purposes. Also, people are saying you have to pay to continue to use the service - this is also not true. Paying only gets rid of ads. All in all, it works OK, but probably not "GOOD" as the volume imbalance is substantial.

    finally a f.....g recording app that works the way it should. non of this dinking around with another number etc. my suggestion is go to settings and change from automatic recording which records every call and switch to manual. then give priority for the app to float on top of your screen. it's a dream after that. thanks to the developer for simplicity that does what you need. I paid for lifetime use no ads! perfect App.

    Great safety tool for me, hard-of-hearing. I recently witnessed a violent crime by phone. I am hard-of-hearing and this app free version made it very easy for me auto record and then quick email the law enforcement since I could not hear much of what happened. I believe this app made me it possible for me to be a helpful witness in a moment of crisis. Had free version, upgraded in gratitude. Thank you to the developers.

    DON'T PAY FOR THIS APP!!! Terrible sound quality...You cannot name the recordings...Unless they Have to be taken directly from your address book WITH A PHONE NUMBER or it can't be named. There are no detailed instructions, it is mostly left to trial and error and a lot of experimenting and guess work. And the so called "Widget" can't be placed where you want it on your screen, it's somewhere on the side like a slider and it took me an hour just to find it!

    It works great! I gave it a 5 star because while there are 2 things I dislike about it, those things are rules and regulations from ANDROID, so any app would have the same drawbacks. What I refer to is that the contact name does not show in my recordings list. I dislike it but it's the same with any recording app on the latest Android version. Also, you only get to hear your own side of the convo in the recording. Put calls you really need to record on speakerphone to overcome this!

    using Samsung S7. a bug where the Blackbox is recording after the call is over, and it's not possible to end the recording (just pause it). only way to fix it is to restart the cellphone and lose on-going recording. Since I got the last update (August 2019) this happened even more, and now I have two (2!) pop ups if recordings at once...

    i dowloaded this to replace another app which did not record the person speaking on the other end and did not record consistently. Before making a call i went to settings, configuration, audio source and set the default to voice call. It works perfectly, both participants can clearly be heard on the call. 100% recommend. Download the app if the above is what your looking for. Review Disclaimer: I own a Samsung galaxy S9 (oreo), if your phone is of a different variety, your experience may vary.

    This call recorder works well; I'm using it alongside the free version of Truecaller call blocker. However, here is my update. Sadly I found out today that it will not record calls made in the hands free mode regardless of what hardware I use; I've tried a couple of hands-free devices, and regardless of settings no success. I need this facility, so sadly I will have to uninstall this particular recorder. Very good otherwise, so it would have been 5 Stars but 4 will have to do in my case.

    This app does not work. Despite allowing all access to contacts calls microphone storage etc, and changing various settings trying all options, and also the fact that there was a notification saying that the call was being recorded, there is no history of the recording in the black box recordings list, and there was no recording saved in my files storage on my device. I tried every avenue and every option, not one recording has been saved and stored on my phone.

    Records better than the $10.00 recording apps I've spent on. Better quality on BOTH ends. If this was only developed in a way to where you can upload it to Microsoft Cloud, Samsung Cloud, instead of just Google Drive, I would say it it is almost as perfect as the old school pre- 7.0 updates. that being said, it is still one app that took me at least an hour to look for and researach (since I do cross-referenes). I'd say that search was well worth it.

    so far i loved this app. i liked when i make call or receive call the app starts by itself. no need to go crazy to start app to start recording. best so far. it will be great if they can add few more features and charge consumers. i be happy to pay as long as new features work well. feature to improve this app are 1. gps location of the caller. 2. back up every sms and text message. 3. video backup.

    I downloaded this app only to find that it only records my side of the conversation. In reading my manual I discovered my cell will not allow me to record the other party. It seems some cellphones disable recording the other caller due to the State Laws in which the phone was originally purchased. This applies in the USA. There are laws forbidding 2 way call recording without advance permission from the party being recorded. So the App is good depending on where you live.

    best application for Phone recording. Incoming and outgoing calls are recorded immediately on opening however you can change that in the settings. i like how I don't have to open this application and then open my phone app instead it all does it at once. I wouldn't mind paying a couple bucks for this and insted it's free. don't ever change to a subscription business model I will drop you real quick.

    I loved this app for a while, but the new update made It so terrible. There are numerous times that I need to record something very important and don't get it. thr worst part of the update is the fact that an ad pops up after every call. That never happened before and can bet a large majority will stop usong thr app if they dint fix this issue. I wanted to stick with Black Box, but i wont have my phone covered in ads. Thank you.

    Update 8-19-19: I just figured out that this app is interfering with my phone's proximity sensor, which is very bad indeed. All else is great, but you really *must* fix the sensor issue! Records phone calls well, but the share function for backing up to Drive only works with one item at a time, which slows things down, especially when you have multiple unsaved numbers and you want to remember who you've called.

    I've used other apps & was disappointed cuz I thought I had evidence on a pathological liar, but all u heard was me & blocks of silence. this apps easy to use, the calls are clear on both sides w/o using speaker, it can be set to automatically record just the calls u want so u don't need to hurry to set it up when u see the person u want to record calling and most importantly, the other person has no idea ur recording them! it stores ur recording in Google Drive. i recommend it

    Actually the application is doing the job good - clear recordings, simple settings. The bad side is that from one point, I think after an update, it added ads popping up in fullscreen after unlocking the screen, something like 6-7 times per day. With uninstalling the ads disappeared. That ruined my otherwise good experience.

    Can only hear myself, but not the person on the other end of the phone :/ Edit: Samsung s9+ App hasn't worked properly for me since mid February. App was perfect before then. Since mid February 1) It records only my voice - can't hear other person. 2) Not showing contact - says unkown on every recording.

    It was a good app for call recording on android oreo but sadly it doesn't record my incoming calls on android pie bcoz it's not updated and it's not suitable for android pie. I request you to upgrade it soon. Another thing when i was on android oreo and used to play recordings of blackbox i had to listen from beginning & i couldn't seek to forward or i couldn't listen it from middle. So i hope u will on these issues too. 😊😊😊

    Stopped recording. Says it's recording, but when I press stop, nothing is saved. settings are set to save. had worked before, but stopped a while back. Also cannot get widget to come up during call screen. I did update and did message you on March 25th, as you requested. You never responded. I updated once again today, and messaged you, as well. Can you read??? I have contacted you through the app twice!! You don't respond. Why don't you respond with a fix????

    Works really good, but it only records my voice. Can still hear the other person, but it's very quite and pretty sure that's from the volume being loud enough for the mic to catch it not the app actually recording it. Google policys or android update whatever the problem if the developers fix it I will for sure update my review and give 5 stars, but as is its pretty much pointless unless you want to listen to a one sided conversation with yourself 😕

    I have a Samsung S6 and this app worked properly for about a month. After that it stopped recording and show an error "your device configuration is not compatible with current....". I changed everything but it doesnt work anymore. Also I reported the problem and sent diagnostic information with it several times but I did not receive any response. I would like to use it again :(

    a couple of issues, this app will not record when muted or on speaker phone. sometimes I want to record meetings but not disrupt them work my background noise, muting solves that problem but disallows recording. also sometimes I'd like to put those same meetings on speaker phone, I can't currently do that with this app. otherwise a very nice app.

  83. Alexander Guzman-avatar

    Inconsistent. When it works the recordings are clear for both sides of the conversion (Using Galaxy S8). The problem is that the app can't be trusted to record important calls. It has a mind of its own, and it only works when it wants to work. It records less than 25% of the calls I make and/or receive.

    Used to work great, recent update claims it isn't compatible with my phone anymore. A notification pops up after every call telling me so. Nothing has changed on my end; same phone, same operating system. I don't see why it would stop working. Edit: contacted developer as per instructions, will update rating if the issue resolves.

    I had high hopes but it was not to be. On a regular call the recording works about half the time. My voice is akways recorded but the other party's voice is not recorded about half the time. I had a 3-way call that was very important and, again, only my voice can be heard, not the other 2 parties. Very dissapointed.

    very good application but there are some problem in using application with samsung note as following 1. All calls are unknown name and all are store in address book 2. Sometimes the application isn't work with dome calls. 3. There is a tone with any call recording and that should be an option and can be cancelled

    It would be good if it actually did record my calls. It only records on my side, not my partner's line. I need it. I really easily forget what I am talking about or what my partner said, so this is essential for me. I use an "Honor 8".

    It works super good! Records the calls and when you hang up and ad appear after 5 seconds you can remove the ad (I think it's fair) and you can lock the app, select contacts which calls you don't want to record and it works very good on my Huawei mate 10 lite so it's great I love this app

    Many times the app missing to record the calls ..idk why and I purchase the lifetime license ! I,m shocked for many updates you done(more than 10) and each time I say they will fix this issue but nothing happen yet! GALAXY S9+ Please fix this issue I have miss many important calls. the app only record 3% of all my calls .. and I have disabled the app of battery saving mode .. and I Know what can make the app not working with the my setting.. it's your job to fix it, must not miss any call!

  93. GAURAV THAKUR-avatar



    First off, it is inferior to the other app I used which was ACR. This app sometimes recorded notification tone too. I had some 4 or 6 second recordings with just notification tune. Second, it wasn't able to record the other person's voice. Same problem for me with ACR. Guess carrier/Android restriction. And timestamp for recordings is incorrect. Probably captures the recording ending time as the recording tone, it's confusing. It should match with call records. Was willing to pay but didn't work

    Its difficult to search for a specific recording because there are no phone numbers. Only 'unsaved unknown'.

  96. EyeOfRaz-avatar



    This app needs to be polished cant hear the other person clearly for evidence purposes is a waste of time. When you try forward to replay a recording, it wont let you, it just takes you alllllllllllllll the way back to the start in order to play it fail. However it did automatically start recording when i got a call, but fails the job 📞😂🤔.

    better after reinstall BACK UP your important RECORDING! after a recent update? at the end of every telephone call a pop-up ad appeared I thought it was Google settings I got on with Samsung remote control and they watched my phone and told me it was this app it also hung up my phone when I switch screens to a web browser I have remove the program and now I'm going to reinstall it see if that fixes it right now I've lost all of the recorded data all of it was important that's why I recorded it

    The other side's voice volume is below acceptable level. Not all calls are being recorded. Switching between bluetooth headset and internal mic during call is not possible without loosing the part when with a headset on. Honor 5c smartphone and Plantronics Voyager 5200 headset were used to try the app.

    this is a great app it's never missed a beat on one of my calls, every call I have has been recorded not one of my calls has ever disappear mysteriously like some other apps that I've used in the past the only small thing I think could use a little Improvement is that sometimes when I go to listen to my call any slight movement on the phone or the app can sometimes stop the listening mode but in the scheme of things this is the best and most accurate call recorder by far!!!
