Hi,
I tried using the sample provided. After i record in the activity result the intent data is null. Am i missing out on something? I am testing on Android 2.2.1 (Samsung Galaxy POP).

Thanking you,
Regards,
Sam

Hi!

I'm using this recorder on a samsung tablet, and I have two problems with it:
- if I tap the screen anywhere other than the recording popup, the recording stops and the popup disappears.
- I can't define a maximum recording length (I tried "intent.putExtra("android.intent.extra.durationLimit", 120);", but it doesn't work)

Do you know a way to solve these, or do I have to write my own voice-recorder popup+functionality?

A year later, but still. There is no extra for duration, but there is a max file size extra : http://developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/MediaStore.Audio.Media.html#EXTRA_MAX_BYTES
