Product Description

Smart Repeat enables you to select and repeatedly listen to only a designated section of a tune or an audio book. Have you ever wanted to repeatedly listen to only a particular section of a language program? Or ever wanted to listen to all the new word sections? Using Smart Repeat, you can make your own 'audio program'. No need to edit the original file. All you need is to tap where you want to start and tap where you want to stop. Then Smart Repeat will repeat only the selected section of music or audio file as many times as you want. Want to rewind only 5 seconds? Want to fast-forward exactly 30 seconds? You can customize the skip search buttons to the number of seconds you want to skip. Smart Repeat can also 'bookmark' a particular spot of a file. Bookmarks can be accessed with a tap on the skip button. Set the number of times you want to repeat, and Smart Repeat will repeat the file as many times as you want and automatically moves to the next file. Or you can choose to endlessly repeat the same section over and over again. Big PLAY, PAUSE button is easy to tap! You can select the colors of buttons from a wide variety! If earphone is disconnected or when receiving an incoming phone call, Smart Repeat will automatically pause. (The function to detect incoming phone call is supported only by the paid edition). Want to learn French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Russian, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, Arabic, Nepali, Hindi, Thai, Cambodian, Philipino, Indonesian or Swahili? "Repetition is the mother of learning"! Use Smart Repeat to help you master a language! Differences between free edition and paid edition 1. Free edition displays advertisements. Paid edition does not. 2. Free edition can mount only up to ten files on the play list. Paid edition has no restriction on the number of files. 3. Free edition does not have 'Auto pause at incoming phone call' function. Paid edition can detect incoming phone calls and automatically stop playing.

THE GOOD:

Smart Repeat enables you to select and repeatedly listen to specifically bookmarked sections of a music file or an audiobook on your device. I have found that this is much more useful of an app on my smartphone than Kindle as I use a digital voice recorder to record lectures and sermons then transfer them to my cloud drive for later review. You can easily move back/forward within an audio file with customized skip buttons when I need to which makes it so much more useful than most other apps that come standard with digital voice recorders.

Smart Repeat is great for students listening to lectures or learning a new language with Pimsleur Language Instruction audio files ripped from the CDs (or any other brand of language instruction material). This app is especially useful for long commutes, walking to class, or when reviewing your notes after a lecture.

THE BAD:

This app doesn't seem to work with Audible's the proprietary audiobook files (.aax). That is a bummer, given many really good language instruction audiobooks and Great Courses lectures may be found on Audible. But that is a minor miss for this app.

Along with not being able to read Audible files, the app seems to only pull locally loaded files from the device and not have an option to read from a cloud server like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Amazon Cloud Drive. That is another miss, but again minor given you can just download the files you want to use at the time of need.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

If you own a digital voice recorder and rely on their standard app (if it came with one), this is a useful upgrade that doesn't spy or pry into your permissions. The interface may not look sleek, but the UI is very simple and user friendly. Nice work to the developer for a great app for a underservered, albeit niche, market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic yet Effective Audio Looping July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
Length: 9:01 Mins
SMART REPEAT is an simple, specialized app with a minimalistic yet intuitive interface. It took me about 8 minutes to figure out all the various edit functions. Nevertheless, there IS a help section present (one I discovered by accident) by pressing your device's Menu button, as well as some interface setup options. Unfortunately, are there aren't any "advance" aspects beyond simple time frame looping (such as independent equalizer or noise masking), so any live digital recordings will still have any atmospheric audio already present. However, to my ear, the looping sounds seamless enough to possibly be of use to musicians who wish to practice with a backtrack loop. Certainly worth checking out while free today!

Read Device State/ID: Specifically to pause during incoming calls

Read External Memory: The app found my two albums stored there automatically.

That is it for permissions. The app does contain INACTIVE adware (Admob) left over from the freebie version, and without Network Access, there is zero reason to be concerned about it.

I'd probably could fill two pages and end up writing a manual instead of a review in describing app usage. I'll save that for my video review. However, I will highlight some aspects:

* Play List style with "Work Copy" file renaming/comments and other options, such as number of loop cycles (long press the file in the Play List). You can copy the loop edits to a separate file. You can also single tap-select multiple files at once for deleting or copying.

* In the individual file Edit Screen, the audio automatically starts at the beginning of the file or wherever [Start Here] marker is placed. You can fine tune the Start/End marke positions by tapping the time reference for each.

5.0 out of 5 stars For the Audio Enthusiast Only - 5 Stars July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is one of those rare tool-box apps you do not want to miss out on while you can save $2.99 as the free app of the day for today, 2014-07-10.

If you're an audio enthusiast, researcher, engineer, spy, or just someone who is hard of hearing, then this app is a must have.

It's simply shows all the audio files on you phone (in mere seconds), then allows you to play each and repeat portions you choose.

Not a big, fancy game that you have to learn. Everything's straight-forward - just mark the beginning and end portion of the audio file that to want to hear several times, and it will repeat.

The app's small size and high speed is something very rarely seen with today's poor programmers - who load up their apps with everything you do not need. This is a no-frills, high-performance tool.

I have no idea why A-zon would offer this today - mostly gamers go for the free app of the day and will trash this app in their reviews. They'll also trash this review. For those of you who are more than gamers, however, this is something you should grab while it's free.

For everyone else, this is a powerful tool that you may use just a couple times per year. But you'll be glad you have it when that time comes. If nothing else, you can just use it to quickly find and play your music, and use the repeat feature just when you have to.

I'll use it for that new song with the hard to understand words, or that lecture note that's hard to understand. My standard player is MortPlayer Music, which I'll use with this. For pitch control, I'm using a brand new app called 'Audipo:Audio Speed Changer. Whatever you use this app for, you'll enjoy how well it works.

My recommendation for the developer is that they repackage it as a powerful player, for that is what it is.
