Replay audio recordings

HI,

 

I am trying to replay some interviews I recorded with my Sony Xperia Z5. For reasons completely unclear to me, everytime I stop the replay it automatically restarts from the beginning. It thus seems like it is impossible to pause replay let alone rewind. Is this normal and if so, firstly, and more importantly, is there a way to transfer the recordings to an actually usable software or format. A recording that always must be listened to in its entirety is less userfriendly then a cassette and an LP. It can't be that Sony has regressed this much that its recording technology is truly ancient... What am I missing?

Re: Replay audio recordings

There was an audio recording app uploaded when I bought the phone. I assumed it is the one from Sony but not sure.

I don't think this is the standard android version...

Re: Replay audio recordings

Yes, this is the one I am talking about. In this one, you should be able to pause and also see recordings if you swipe left.

Re: Replay audio recordings

That is what I figured but unfortunately not how it works for me. 

regardless what I try. From the moment I scroll forward or backward or pause a replay it just jumps back to 0:00:00. It's like a cassette you can't forward or backward Slightly frowning Face

Re: Replay audio recordings

And if you stop a recording, can you find them in the next panel to the right?

Re: Replay audio recordings

Yes that is no problem. I'm listening to recordings I made over the last few weeks. I saved them all (changed the name as well) and just stored them. None of this seems to be related to my replay problem.

Re: Replay audio recordings

Make sure to have a backup of all your recordings. Go to settings-apps-all, look for the app, force stop and clear data. Check how it is.
