Say It Backwards app is a sound recorder app with one goal - record a sound and play it back in reverse. Thats it. Such simple tool gives you enormous possibilities. I personally play with my kids and entertain my friends. Check how "NOW" becomes "ONE", and if you practice a little you can learn to say short sentences backwards. Listening to known songs, jingles or other sounds can be surprising.

Give it a try with English words: "easy", "Funny enough", "Amor Roma", "say yes" - those are all phonetic palindromes.

While making this app I have realized there is a whole conspiration theory about backmasking - give it a search on Youtube or Wikipedia - you will be suprised. My favourite one is "Oh no, you're playing the record backwards. Watch out, you might ruin your needle" ... at least using Say It Backwards app you will not ruin your needle :)

Please take a note there are ads being served in a form of a beautiful banner on the top of you screen. If for some reason you prefer to avoid it either purchase full version of my app or board a plane as the ads will not get to you while you are in airplane mode. I do hope you will decide to buy a full version though. Planes do emit tonnes of carbon dioxide you know ... :)

5-star app!!!

I love this app! It’s records perfectly each time and always plays back with no flaws whatsoever. It never crashes or freezes up like some do. Easy to use, simple controls make it so anyone can use it. I would recommend to anyone

Funny and challenging but...

It has great quality and so far hasn’t crashed but seems to pick up every sound in the area. Also it is hard to hear what it is saying and does not say them back wards as they are supposed to. It seems like a great app other then these few cons and a couple others that are minor. Well I take it back. I do not know how to write another review so I am editing this one. It crashes. ALOT. Also I said “focus perfect child” backwards and it said VERY clearly “Focus Pregnant cheese”. Legit. So that made me laugh hard.

So funny but weird.

This app is funny when I record my voice. But the backwards playing is weird.
