    I'm now using the paid version and just tried taking a screenshot and still...a small black window pops up in the bottom that says "can't take screenshot due to security policy" and my wife's Note8 says the same thing. Strange that people here can. Here's a pic...

    By the way I added a screenshot of what it looks like when I try to add attachments to this forum. What a mess!
    I wonder why. As I posted above, I get a similar msg trying to take a screenshot while in my Chase app.

    Here's my recorder app screenshot:



    And I'm using the AC app, not my browser (tho most sites I do use my browser and not the app).

    It shouldn't matter, but who is your provider? I'm on VZW.

    The developer confirmed I can't take a screenshot because I have a password setup to open the app.

    Settings>Security>Require password

    When I unchecked the box, closed the app and then owned it again, I could take screenshots. Cool!

    Thx Sandra for the reminder to use the app. I keep using the browser and even in mobile view is not mobile friendly for attaching pics.

    Here are the other questions I asked him for 2 & 3...

    2. When I toggle the handset & speaker on/off by long pressing it, sometimes it only plays through the speaker, even if I have it set to play through the handset only. The audio output setting is set to handset speaker. It worked fine the other day and now it only plays through the speaker no matter what setting I have it on. It seems to be very inconsistent. ?

    3. Under the menus Settings>Recording>Device I don't see the Note8 listed. I do see S8 and S8+. Is this maybe why I'm having issues with this app?

    The developer of the app seems to be very quick to reply too! Here's the recent email he sent me answering my questions...

    "Hi Nick,


    1. The app prevents to take screenshot if there’s a password to enter the app in Settings > Security.

    2. I’ll check it, thanks for the bug report.

    3. Actually, I have plans to remove the list from the app at all. Maybe I won’t remove it soon, but it doesn’t do anything special on devices without root. So you may ignore the fact that Note 8 isn’t there.


    I own OnePlus 3T and here the app keeps recording the other side while my side is muted.


    Best regards,
    Alexander Skvortsov"

    Ok...What does the app icon look like because I can't find it in the store. I really need an app like this.

    Edit....nevermind.....I put the developers name in and found it. (I hate swing shifts)

    There are so many that are just called Call Recorder, so hard to know what particular app you are all talking about.

    I was using this Call Recorder app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...cecallrecorder) for about a year on my Samsung Note 4. It has been Working PERFECTLY every time! Loved it, until I just got the Note 8 a couple days ago and went to play back a call today, and it only recorded my side of the call, not the other party! I have emailed the developer but no response yet. The trouble shooting info they had in the app was to NOT use a Bluetooth ear piece. I ALWAYS use a Bluetooth as had absolutely NO problems with it on the Note 4! So either need a fix for this perfect one, or need a new one??

    The app with the devs name in it (skvalex) just type this in and you'll find it and it works great on the Note8. No issues with bluetooth either. The only issue I have is documented above (using speakerphone for some reason mutes the audio...so you can't do this and the dev doesn't know why this is either) but I haven't missed a recording otherwise...

    I think you can use it for free for 2 weeks, see how you like it and then have to pay $9.99. Worth it, but would be nice if they fixed the speakerphone bug as this doesn't seem to be an issue on the S8's.

    I might add that Boldbeast isn't an app I can recommend to any Note 8 user. It works most of the time but will fail at random saying I have another recording app running, which I don't (many others reporting the same issue). Then, on top of that and MANY other issues I was having (like LOTS of other N8 users), the developer's response to any issues is to just say that it "works perfectly" on the Note 8. He basically makes it sound like every single person having issues is an ***** and if they can't get his problematic app to work, it's their fault. On top of all this, he called me a liar. I happen to have screenshots of every single issue I have with the app to prove the issues. I wish I'd never paid the $10 for it. Might have to try the SKVALEX app.

    Thank you for that heads up! I really loved the one I posted that I was using with my Note 4. It was Perfect in recording boths sides of the conversation and extremely clear. Wish the dev would email back with a fix. Not a fix of "don't use a bluetooth"!

    I was going to use Boldbeast. In fact, I tried searching for it in this forum first and came across the SKVALEX call recorder app and trust me when I say this...

    It records EVERY call. Except when I use speakerphone. Every, single call...it flat out records them. Done. Try it for free for 2 weeks.

    I have a theory as to why SKVALEX works and others don't. But I'm not going to bring it up because I don't wanna ruin a good thing! lol!

    used Automatic Call Recorder Pro for a while but it was wonky on my s8+ so switched to "total recall" and it seems to be working fine for me on the N8 too. (typically im recording on bluetooth)

    note, just double checked a few recordings and its been working perfectly

    I use a BT headset much of the time for calls. Have you used a BT headset for any calls and if so, do they record both sides clearly?

    Yes...BT works. Again, you can simply try it out for 2 weeks and see for yourself if it works for ya. I have a Garmin GPS in my car with BT and it recorded both sides perfectly. My last Call Recorder app never did BT.

    Would love to hear your theory, but anyway, it works for me even on speaker, and any Bluetooth device. Hands down the best call recorder ever, would be lost without it.

    Sorry, I need to clarify the speakerphone thing...it records on speakerphone with no issues. The issue begins when you use the mute button on the Note8. This is well documented in the posts above and others have confirmed the same issue. The call continues recording but when the mute button is pressed, it mutes the other side, not just your side. I contacted the dev and he doesn't know why but he has an S8 (I think) and doesn't have this issue. I got it to work fine the first time I used speakerphone and muted the call but after that it won't do it. So if it does work, try it a few more times and it most likely won't, at least that's been my experience.

    I'll keep my theory to myself, it probably isn't anything but like I said, I'm not gonna bring light to it. lol! So mum's the word...

    OK, I finally installed SKVALEX recorder app to give it a try. Worked fine on one test call so I'll see over the next couple of weeks.

    BUT, I can't get the cloud sync function to work because it never signs into the account. I want to sync to Google Drive and choose that, then choose the account, tap ok but it never signs in. Is this a limitation of the trial version? Does anyone else use this feature that can chime in?

    It depends on the state. Some states require both parties to be aware of the recording while other states require only one person to be aware.

    inform the other party you want to record the call, and seek permission.

    Or, just like most businesses say: this call may be recorded for quality and training purposes ...

    Or just keep making a beep sound throughout your call and if they say anything just explain you're recording the call. LOL!!!!!

    As king said, some states need only one party to know the call is being recorded, which would obviously be you. I'm in NJ, a one party state. I've recorded every call since my old LG flip phones (in the 90's), which had call recorders built in.

    Whatever the issue was with getting SKVALEX recorder app to work with Google Drive, worked itself out in the next day or two.

    The app has worked flawlessly and recorded every single call clearly. I'll be paying for it in a couple days when my free trial is up. It has a much nicer interface than the crappy Boldbeast app, too.
