I'm a time-served old school traditional Dictaphone user and never thought I'd make the switch to a completely digital recorded.  That said, after trying a few apps and settling for dictomate I'm now using my recording app in ways I never thought I would!  See, you can teach an old dog new tricks!

I recently bought a new Android smartphone (Acer Liquid E3) and one thing it does perfectly is audio recording. I just use the stock app and set the quality to "High (OGG)", hit record and I'm away. The audio quality is crisp and clear with the right balance. 


I use to use "Virtual Recorder" which produced very good results. I only record audio clips to make dummy test tracks for audio production or to record interviews with people - I never really use them as any form of reminder.
