U could just record and send it to urself . Which is what I did , although the quality of the sound seem to decline by quite a bit , it still works .

I tried the effect on some Samsung phone users and found the recording to be much less clearer than on iPhone uses ... Where exactly does Samsung phone picks up recordings ?

I had this problem too Blake, have you tried mounting the switch the other way around instead? I found mounting it the other way around (so wires come out the switch towards me instead out outwards) worked a little better in activating the switch and was also more accurate but then having a thick coat or jacket on top caused problems (needed to constantly re-adjust) and this just got annoying. Doing this in a long sleeve shirt was great but the click from the switch was a problem especially in a room where there's not much ambient noise to cover it.

Found out that the microphone (at least on the new Samsung S6 phone) is at the bottom along with the speaker and there is also a secondary microphone at the top of the phone as well. I tested this out on my own S6 and found that in the sound recorder the microphone in use is the one on the bottom end of the phone (just like on a Iphone) and NOT the one at the top.

Oh lol ... I took my tablet and finally noticed the small hope there ... I realized many are using phone cases that might block the little recording hole . Next time I might need to take off their phone case and perform it ... Thanks

Another thing to note, which I found, was that there is a loss of quality and audio levels when you transfer the audio to the phone to play it back, especially in my case as I was putting the audio through some filters to give it a scary feel and so anyone who would hear it would not know it was my voice. I found the best way to determine if a phone will be able to pick it up was to test it in a quiet room with the volume on the phone right up (through EVP). If I could hear it then that's good (for performance in a similarly quiet room/environment you just set the volume lower) but if you can't hear it even when the volume is on max then it is probably just too quiet so the phone you borrow from a spectator may not even pick it up or it'll be very, very faint to the point that it would be a struggle for you and your spectators to hear it.

Yeah . True that the quality will decrease . For me , I just download some recording app and send the recording via email to my computer first then use iTunes to transfer it back to the phone . I felt that the phone's recorder seems to be good .

In keeping with the rules of "latest and greatest", I don't want to see any exposure, but I am interested in learning how this might be different AND better than just using a simple stuffed animal recorder/player? They are small enough to conceal and super easy to operate. I have done almost the exact routine as the demo using this $7 device. If anyone can answer this without exposure, that would be great. thx.

You can fully customise everything to what ever quality you like.. Store as many sounds as you want and it takes up next to no extra pocket space.. The over all qiity is also far superior.

Thanks, Alan. There are significant restrictions to using the "stuffy recorder". Here are some of the limitations: 10 second limit, replay must be continuous, and the device creates a hissing sound.

They are very small devices that go into stuffed animals to make them talk. They are activated by squeezing the stuffed animal. They are round with a button on the front. They have a switch on the back that has "record", "off", and "play". You set it to "record". You hold down the button and speak into the microphone. When done, you release the button and you have recorded a message. You then move the switch to "play". Now, when you press the button, the recording plays. Because they are so small, they can be hidden in the hand, and they are easy to operate because all you have to do is squeeze to press the button. You can hold one under a cellphone and activate the play feature. However, as I said earlier, you can only record 10 seconds, and the playback has a bit of a hissing noise. When I use these, I either make sure to press the record on the phone at the same time as the play on the device, or make sure there is some ambient noise. Also, I have several that are different colors. I can repeat the effect with different outcomes. I'm sure this is a very low tech approach to what you are doing, and with it's limitations.
