PhonoPaper is a camera app for playing pictures with encoded sound (PhonoPaper-codes).
With this app, you can also create your own codes: 10 seconds of sound can be recorded from a microphone and converted into an image.

[ Key features ]
 * PhonoPaper does not require access to the network for decoding;
 * PhonoPaper code is analogue, so it is not so sensitive to different types of the image distortion (bad camera, dark picture, wrinkled paper, etc.); at least you will hear the "silhouette" of the original sound;
 * code can be played in real-time with hand-controlled speed and direction;
 * code can be drawn by hand to get some unusual sounds.

[ Examples of usage ]
 * voice messages (or pieces of music) on t-shirts, billboards, posters, postcards, goods;
 * audio labels for phonorecords;
 * audio examples in books;
 * secret messages;
 * art-experiments.

[ How to use ]
Launch the app, point the camera at the code (tap on the screen to focus if necessary) and smoothly scan the picture from left to right. The code should be parallel to the frame - try to keep the camera level. The black code markers (top and bottom) should fall entirely into the frame. If the application recognizes code markers, you will hear a sound. If you are unable to play the code smoothly, press the record button on the right side of the screen, this will enable automatic scanning.

Default PhonoPaper code length is 10 seconds. But if the code was generated in Virtual ANS app, its length can be much longer - in this case, the playback speed can be changed manually.

Known solutions for some problems: 

App ChangeLog

  • * auto-repeat in the virtual (on-screen) text keyboard;

    Really Cool!!! Alternative Language (if used that way). It's neat to print what looks like a Sonar graph on paper, then sweep your camera across that, and your audible spoken words are played. COOL.!!! ALSO, neat to just hear what audio signal different images will produce (sounds a lot like feedback), but Cool.

    Great work. Can you allow it to read a picture on the phone. Отличная работа. Можете ли вы позволить ему читать картинку на телефоне.

    Great app! Is there any way to add a feature that would allow one to scan a digital photo to reproduce sounds?

    Only just begun to play with this, but I really love the concept of this app in every way. A graphic depiction of the sounds the device hears printed in sonar waves. You can replay them by scanning over the image. I wonder how well a tattoist worth his salt could replicate this type of graphic depiction of audio. The idea has endless possibilities. I would love to give an extra star 🌟 just for uniqueness.

    This is possibly one of the coolest apps ever. One really fun thing to try is to say a small phrase, make a code of it, and then try to copy the shapes on blank white paper with a soft pencil. Even if your shapes are not anywhere near exact, you can make alien voices come out of your phone from pencil marks on paper! Amazing!

    Horrible app in my own experience. Froze my screen within the first 10 minutes of usage and I was unable to close the program or force my phone to turn off. Unfortunately my phone is quite slim and I simply cant remove the battery, so I had to wait until the battery depleted so I could reboot it. Would not recommend.

    Love the app, works great with Virtual ANS installed on a pc to make longer PhonoPaper images/scans. NOTE TO DEV: not sure why but my LG Stylo 4 (Android 8.1.0) will freeze after 5 minutes or so. This does not happen every time, but more often than not.. Nonetheless it is still fantastic to use on my LG G5, no freezing or lag.

    Fun, very very cool concept. Only thing missing is to be able to play your own images from device storage, so one could also playback the images created by PhonoPaper or other software (camera etc...) Perhaps have a selfie cam option too, play your face or that of you and others.

    This is absolutely fantastic. Amazing. Brilliant. Awesome. Did I say "Fantastic"? I'm so impressed by the concept, the execution and the many uses that it can be put to. Even the vintage design is perfection itself.

    It's a great audio toy. You can produce otherworldly sounds. But it has a couple of serious bugs: on my Nexus 5X, the camera image is always upside-down, and when I try to record video, it becomes a stopped frame, and the video is empty.
