Hello! I wanted to ask for some help on a recording function based app I was trying to make. I basically want to make an app that could store two or three sound files on a cloud database, allow for another (or yourself) to retrieve all three (or more) sound files, and play all of them at the same time, simultaneously.
The workflow I have in mind is this:
start/stop recording: records the sound and saves it as a 3gp file
(don't have this button yet but) press a button to upload the file to a database
(don't have this button yet but) press a button to retrieve all sound files from said database
press play button to play them all simultaneously (over one another)
I currently have only the record/stop/save/play function working, and I have no idea how I should continue with this idea. Any help (a sense of direction, what features I should look into e.x. firebase, or any detailed instructions to help me achieve this goal) is welcome. Also, if such a function wouldn't even be possible in AppInventor, then please let me know. Thank you so much for everyone's help.
Hi, thank you so much for the reply! I have a few questions:
my current app that I have is saving the sound file as a 3gp, as the "soundrecorder.savedRecording to (directory)" only worked with the line shown in the photo that I uploaded of my blocks, which is in 3gp (I had many problems with this which was solved by that file directory). Would my other processes still work if I just continue with this file type?
could you provide me with some links or instructions on how to set up the could databases and all that? I also read that I need a storage extension or something like that to upload sound files onto firebase. could you tell me how these work?
I have more questions, but I think this would be a great starting point. Please excuse my inexperience, I am an absolute beginner for app making and appinventor. Thank you so much for the help.
