and to clarify again with vrec:
connect pre via USB Drive
make folder 'vr'
Vrec will save files there

The play button at the bottom right of zcorder main screen plays the recording.

More choice in apps is great - good to hear that there are now two audio recorders for the Pre to choose from.

Yep, choice is always welcome, if you're not Apple, Inc. I guess

Want an easy built-in voice recorder on the Palm Pre?
Then use the video recorder app now part of all Pre's with the latest firmwares.
Start the camera app; click on the video recorder icon; start the recording; put your finger over the camera lens to save bytes used in recording; say your memo; stop the recording.
You now have a voice memo on your Palm Pre.

11 secs of voice recording; finger over camera lens to minimize bytes used; took up 300KB of data.

How about because I and many others don't hack our phones and just run Palm provided firmware.

Then you will not be able to use a voice recorder only application (and many other things that are not allowed by Palm in the app catalog yet), because "hacking your phone" (your term, not mine - I prefer to use the phrase "running homebrew applications using the official Palm-supported palm-install tool to install them") is the only way you can access the microphone at the moment.

BTW, homebrew applications don't modify the Palm provided firmware, they run on top of unmodified Palm provided firmware, just like all the other applications from the official app catalog.

But it's your choice, and of course running homebrew is not for everyone, but the choice should be made with the real information in hand, rather than people thinking that running homebrew is the same as hacking the firmware on other platforms.

I don't 'hack' mine either. But I do use Preware. Try it, you'll like it. You can have all of those features now while waiting for Palm to get around to putting them out.

Conversation Recorder would be great. What I am hoping would be to have a record button pop up, when you answer a call. if you press that, the entire conversation should be recorded and saved as an mp3 or wav file. It should stop recording when the call is over. That should be really cool, if soneome could do it. I am willing to pay for one.

You know it's illegal to record a conversation in many states without notifying the other party, right?

no need for shazam. Just google the lyrics you know and it will find the song for you. I have never failed to find a song this way....

But Shazam is much cooler and easier.

Then again, if I want to know who did a song or details on it, I have a person for that whom I can just email. '"'

How well's that work for you when you're listening to a jazz song with no lyrics? Or a classical piece?

Until the API is opened enough to provide true conversation recording, Google Voice actually works pretty well for this purpose, if you have a GV number forwarded to your Pre. I've used it a few times to record interviews that I need to transcribe and the sound quality of the call recipient is perfect; your voice, on the other hand, is only recorded as well as how it sounds coming into the mic. But the other end is recorded straight from the "line source."

Anyway, you obviously have to have a Google Voice account to use this feature. Also, call recording in GV is currently supported for incoming calls only, however there's an easy work-around to record outbound calls... Here are the instructions, taken from the official Google Voice help forums (a user submitted this solution, along with an explanation of why GV hasn't adopted outbound call recording yet):

Quote:
If they enabled recording outgoing calls it could cause problems when you dialed automated lines and had to key in numbers. Like calling the bank. It's not a pretty way to do things but if you want to record an outgoing call you need to initiate it using a Call Widget.

Call Widgets can be put on any web page, and allow people to call from that web page. When somebody clicks on the widget, we call them and connect them to you. Your number is always kept private. You can create multiple call widgets and have different settings for each of them.
Once you create that "Call Widget" you can just copy a shortcut to it on your desktop or in your Web browser and use it whenever you need to record an outbound call.

Note: The GV recording feature plays a short announcement to both parties that the call is being recorded. I think I remember reading that there is also a work-around or trick to disable it, but I can't remember where. But like I mentioned, for things like interviews it works great!

if you are that sophisticated, you should already know who is playing

i think you should know, downloading hombrewed apps on your palm pre IS NOT HACKING! web OS is OPEN SOURCE downloading and installing these apps WILL NOT void your warrenty HACKING your pre would be for example making a pre plus work on a carrier that only has the 4 gb pres i think sprint for example , or installing govnah and overclocking your pre ..
palm actually semi encourages 3rd party developers... thus their developer programs, anyone can apply!! even u
