  1. Sunrise Seaport says:

    The silence detection for voice memos does not work. Even in sections where my voice is converted to text properly, the ‘skip silence’ button will skip all the way past those sections. It usually skips over most of the memo! The threshold for silence detection should be BELOW that of voice transcription.

  2. I cannot use voice recorder to record a voice anymore. Every time I push the record button, it keeps notifying the other apps has record. What should I do?

  3. Tabitha Veasey says:

    I wish that you could share your voice recordings to face book page and or as a text message to friends . Love my phone but don’t like that you cnt share voice recordings.

  4. Rick Pacenza says:

    Can I record a voice ringtone like “it’s Harry calling” on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3? And when using the “easy mode” I lose a lot of stuff.

  5. Hey, I would love to start doing interviews and I’m looking for something specific, maybe it would be offered by another app than the stock one. I love the bookmark option, but instead of using the onscreen button, I want to use the (volume down) button as the bookmark button. Is there a way I can do that? In order for me to not worry about where my finger is every time I want to bookmark.

  6. Maurice Perron says:

    Got this phone note 3 recently. Just learning how it works. I get stumped when I download a recording . I go to the download file icon but nothing is in it. What do I do?

    • Where did you download it from? You can always use My Files to find files in your phone.

      If it is recorded with your Note 3, you can find it in the sounds folder.
