When you first start “Zvondika” we have to accept the rules of the program. Since the call recording is prohibited in most countries, by agreeing to the rules, we take full responsibility.
Once we get on the screen, in charge of recorded telephone conversations. For convenience, they are divided into categories: “All”, “Inbox”, “Outbox” and “Selected”. At the bottom we have a player that allows you to play, dissipate and turn over the tracks.
Call Recording is carried out in automatic mode, you can disable this feature in the settings. After that we will be able to record calls for two “teams”: shaken and after notification.
With shaking everything is clear, but this feature is present only in the paid version of the application. A notification is still easier. During the call to the “status bar”, a window appears in which we can manually control the recording, add a comment and send an entry in “Favorites.” In the settings you can change the functions that are displayed in the notification.
Additionally, when you start recording, you can turn on vibration. And recording a telephone conversation, we can shake up the smartphone, thus adding label. The free version only one, the full – unlimited number.
In addition, the paid version can ask about maintaining records immediately after the conversation, so unnecessary, or the private conversation, you can not save.
Now comes the most interest to us, part of the application – the sound recording. To do this, go to another screen, the key transition in the upper right corner. Menu recorder also divided into categories, three of them: “Recorder”, “All” and “Favorites”.
When recording audio, we see only the name of the timer, and recording – and nothing distracts from the work. You can just move the record to the category with the elected, and even add a label to rename a file, to make their comments on the record.
The recorded files are placed in the categories “All” and “Favorites”. They are sorted by date, tags can be viewed separately records. Naturally, they can reproduce, rename, delete and send. Everything is simple and clear.
If done right swipe to open the sub-menu. We immediately offer to purchase the full version of the application, rescan the device for entries, sort them, set up cloud storage, go to the settings and to evaluate the application. All of the items are more or less familiar and understandable, and we will deal with the settings in the relevant section.
I am interested in cloud storage. If you enable synchronization with Google Drive, then all our records and all the information / application settings are stored in the cloud. Of course, this practical function. After all, your phone can do something to happen and the record sooner or later need.
Unfortunately, support for cloud storage offering few applications, and even in the free version. In “Zvondike” done for the people – the key functions are available to all and free of charge.
No one recorder can not do without the widget, in fact, has he had “Zvondika.” Widget alone, but it can contain up to four key functions: recording, rename, move, and add to the favorites tag.
Preferences from “Zvondika” very, very much, they are divided into categories and items. You can change the location of the folder with the records, change the subject application, configure the control gestures (shaking). Naturally, the list goes on.
Here we point out the possibility of non-standard functions do not write a short talk and auto-deletion of records after a certain period.

For performance applications there are no complaints, all very well and efficiently. The only thing to record calls on your phone should be set similar utilities. For example, on my Xiaomi Redmi Note Standard “dialer” records calls, and even after disabling this feature smart phone did not work with “Zvondikom.”

«Zvondik” – extremely simple, qualitative and functional application for burning audio and calls. Judging from the appearance, the program quite stylish and simple. But as soon as we go into the settings – we see the large number of options. Advanced users will appreciate, while the newcomers will not notice. And if the function can be skipped, then the recording will immediately feel the quality when listening. By the way, they have a great value for the quality / size.
As for the cost, the free app comes with some restrictions. In the paid version, the price is $ 4.77, contains many features and no advertising. Given the quality of the application and its structure, the cost is quite appropriate. However, the price tag for all domestic users 147.55 rubles, which is even nicer.
