Version 2.1.0: Upload to Dropbox becomes much easier.

Dear readers,

We are glad to announce that Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder version 2.1.0 has been released! One major improvement that we want to highlight is the ability of Dropbox auto-upload.

Now you may already know that you can share your recordings to Dropbox from the share menu. But there is no way to automatically do it every time you create a recording. With this new auto-upload ability, you don’t need to worry if some time later you lose your phone or the storage media fails, because you will have a backup of your recordings in Dropbox! It also means that you can get rid of chunks of bulky recordings in your phone and free up the device storage because Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder will indicate which recordings have been safely uploaded.

Open Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder and go to settings > Dropbox. First you will need to log in to your Dropbox account to activate the feature. After that you can always toggle on/off or totally log off from your account by tapping the “Account” entry.


After you log in, a folder will automatically be created at Dropbox > Apps > Hi-Q Recordings and all the uploaded recordings will be stored there.

With the “upload new recordings” option turned on, the app will automatically upload new recordings to Dropbox.

Choose to upload whenever there is wi-fi and mobile network or via wi-fi only to conserve your mobile data usage.

You can also check the Status to see how many uploads are pending or in progress, or whether it is idle.

In the recording list, you can see little Dropbox icons indicating whether the recordings are “uploaded”, “currently uploading”, “pending upload”, or “error”.



From left: “uploaded”, “currently uploading”, “pending upload”, “error”

Errors may happen when connection is lost in the middle of uploading (it will automatically retry) or when the Hi-Q Recordings folder in your Dropbox is missing.

You can also upload your existing recordings to Dropbox by tapping them and choose “Upload to Dropbox”.


Please note that this is not a Dropbox two-way synchronisation. After the app finishes uploading the recordings, you can edit/rename/delete the files in your Dropbox and Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder will not do anything about them.

Hopefully you will enjoy this new feature. Update your app here:

Unleash the power of Quick Settings

On the latest update of Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder, we introduced new UI element in the recording page that we called “Quick settings”. We thank for your feedbacks, as this feature has been suggested by some of you and we think this is going to be very useful for recording. The Quick settings gives you ability to modify the recording directly in the recording page even while the recording is ongoing.


There are 4 elements we add Quick Settings:

1. Recording format

Choose which recording format (MP3/WAV/M4A/OGG/FLAC). You can’t change the format while recording.

2. Quality

Set the recording quality. Note that WAV and FLAC don’t have this option. You can’t change the quality while recording is ongoing.

3. Gain

Adjust recording gain. The best part is you are able to adjust gain while recording. So if recording is too loud or too soft, you can easily change gain and adjust it directly in the same screen. Note that if you adjust gain while recording, you are adjusting the “current recording gain” which is specifically for that recording, meaning the gain setting will not be saved for the next recording. Meanwhile, adjusting gain while you are not in recording session will change the “default gain”.

4. Timer

Add timer and the app will automatically stop the recording after the specified time. You can adjust the timer even while recording is already ongoing. Note that timer option is only in Quick setting.

If you haven’t update the app, you can update the app through Google Play.

We hope this feature will be useful for you.


You Don’t Have To Purchase Again (Part 2)

After some discussion within our team, we come out with what we think as the best move:

1. Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder by Audiophile will be the app that is available in Google Play. Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder by Yuku will not be visible to any users. This is important to avoid confusion why there are 2 similar apps on Play Store.

2.  However, if you had bought the app previously (the Yuku version), you can go to this link to download the Yuku version to download the full version freely, if any case you switch phone. Therefore you don’t have to purchase the same app twice.

3. Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder by Yuku will be updated to be the same (latest) version as Audiophile version.

We truly hope this is the best solution for everyone. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

You Don’t Have To Purchase Again (Part 1)

Good news!

As some of you have known, Google suspended our dev account (Yuku), resulting the change of ownership of Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder to Audiophile and we will reimburse you for your second purchase via Paypal.

But a few weeks ago, a kind Google employee actually contacted us and we explained our situation to her. After a while, Google finally retrieve our account back with our apps ratings, statistics, comments are still preserved like the same as before our account were closed (Thank you, Google!).

We decided to re-activate Yuku’s Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder because there are still so many users using it. Therefore if you are existing user of Yuku, you don’t have to purchase Audiophile’s Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder if you want to install the app on another devices, as what it should be in the first place.

On the other side, there are now two similar Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder apps on Google Play (plus one free version), with both of the apps has quite amount of users using it. We don’t want to confuse you guys of which app you should download. Currently Audiophile’s has the latest version (1.21) and Yuku’s is still version 1.19.3. We will decide what should be done the best, so stay tuned for the next updates!

Why do I have to purchase again?

Lately,  we have been bombarded with this question. So we will explain it here.

As some of you may have noticed, on Nov 14, 2014, the app Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder, both the free and full version, as well as Yuku account (the publisher of the app) were removed from Play Store by Google. We are sad for this and so far, our effort to contact Google was in vain to the point that we lose hope for it.

We don’t know exactly why, out of the blue, we just received auto-generated email from Google saying this (excerpt):

– – – – –

This is a notification that your Google Play Publisher account has been terminated.

REASON FOR TERMINATION: Prior violations of the Content Policy and Developer Distribution Agreement by this or associated accounts as outlined in previous emails sent to the registered email address(es) of the Publisher account(s).

– – – – –

We believe that Google must have a reason doing this, but we also believe that Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder has never done anything wrong, and so this suspension could be due to our other apps that was indeed banned by Google before.

Meanwhile, if you have bought the full version, and need to install it on your new devices, what you can do now is you can:

1. Install the app (APK file) directly here for free. You will need to login to the same Google account when you purchased the app to activate the code. Also, do not worry if the phone says something like “this type of file can harm your phone”. This is just a general warning that you truly aware what you are downloading, and we can promise you that this file is 100% safe and innocent.

Download Full Version APK

This is the APK for version 1.19.3 so this is not the latest version. If you want to get the latest version, you will need to:

2. Download new app by Audiophile and get refund via Paypal. For existing Yuku’s user it’s not fair if they pay twice for the same app. And now, Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder is back to Play Store with different owner. To get refund via Paypal, please write to and provide us with:

  1. Copy of order receipt of the old app (from Yuku)
  2. Copy of order receipt of the new app (from Audiophile)
  3. Your Paypal account address.

If you have Paypal account we recommend you to go to option 2 because you will easily get updates from us if we release new versions of Hi-Q MP3 Voice Recorder.

However, if you have no PayPal account, you can contact with our existing order number (or email) and we still have another way to resolve this for you.

We are really sorry for this inconvenience caused. We hope you continue to support us. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
