What are users saying about Background Video Recorder

by X####:

it worked great for about a month, now it stopped working I installed it and reinstalled it, same thing don't work anymore

by O####:

The app works 100% of the time, but... When I playback some of the recorded video, it's sometimes missing several minutes of the video itself, not to mention that they more often than not, are the main reason for me recording it in the first place. It also kinda takes a quite bit for it to start recording when you use the wigit... (1-6 seconds)

by K####:

It may helpful in sting operation to curb bad things in the society.

Nice features, will definitely help with traffic stops without the police noticing. That way everyone can see how they act without them faking in front of a camera

by L####:

by S####:

Really Good and Working apps. You Should try this I'm very happy with it. Stop looking negative rating just download it.

by G####:

Using a ton of battery even when off. This HAS to change. Edot for dev: Using an S8+, I'm leaving it installed but unused and monitoring its battery drain. I will post a screenshot later today without the app ever being used.

by Q####:

Great recorder, the only thing I dont like is when I lock my phone and then I unlock it, the video freezes and wont keep recording the video.

by B####:

Any updated crashing of videos when we switches default camera.? Please try to fix it

by M####:

Video playback freezes at 4 minutes and 6 seconds although the audio continues for an 111 minute video. No fix. My trust is broken.

by P####:

Please add slow motion video recording.. If the mobile support the same.. And add recording from second back camera.. Its very useful

by X####:

Pretty good , only i've noticed lately it's just been cutting parts of the recording out and when reviewing it i see that it just skips a part in the middle; this is minor but it also sets the video back slightly when viewing it and exiting out and opening it again If you can look into this i'd be a flawless 5 star

by O####:

Theeee best..u can change it icons n hide it ..u can hide the vedios in the gallery...u can choose the vedio quality and customise as per ur available memory space..seriously it allowed me to capture my life's best moments without making others conscious. thank u Truely amazing app

Love this app. Although it gives ad but not intuitive one. That's more like it. I couldn't find to upload to cloud drive. Please provide that if possible.

Perfect 4 watching kids from another room!!!! Best of ALL is catch your cheating husband... Alfred is a great app 2, u just need 2 phone 4 it though!!! It's REALLY Worth every min, every time u spend trying 2 catch cheaters....

by A####:

Video file will NOT save if phone is shut off in real time. If you intend to use this record a traffic stop and are detained or placed under arrest, many cops will by default shut a person's phone off. Other than that, it's a great app. Just remember to stop the recording before you're cuffed.

by Z####:
