    OK so the kid wants this, cuz he saw it on a friend's phone, I thought OK let's give it a whirl, and install it, we'll the app converts no problem, it starts no problem, the problem is in the functionality the app is not hearing voice inputs from the mic even though the permissions say the mic is enabled and allowed to use the app,

    Has anyone got this working, I loaded the version from 1 Mobile market is there a newer one?

    I searched Talking Tom in Snap (which uses Google Play). It returned 250 results. You are going to need to give me a better way to find the exact version you are referring to.

    Sure, here are the screen shots from 1Mobile Market of the two versions I have tried

    If you can direct me to newer versions or versions that work on 1925 that would be excellent!

    I selected Talking Tom Cat Free by Marko Stamcar. I installed it. Found it an app I would never let my child use, like most Android apps. However, the microphone is certainly working. I talk, Tom talks back.

    I took a short video of it working on my Z30 which is on 1925. If you'd like to see it I can upload it to DropBox where you can download it.

    That's fine no need, do you know where BlackBerry puts the bar files for apps that are created from the app to bar convertor, I'm thinking the previous version is still there that I tried to install earlier, my thinking is to find that remove it, then reinstall your apk

    I don't know for sure but I would look around Device, misc, Android. Also, check Settings-->App Manager-->Device Monitor-->Storage. Look to see if Talking Tom is listed. If so, tap it and select Delete.

    Never thought of that! Will try and report back, it does work as a phone so I don't see why not

    If it doesn't how do I fix?

    OK I have tried the native voice control app and it works, however when I try the same command in Sayit it does not recognize any voice commands, how on the name of hades do I fix that????

    Like what could be broken?

    Is there a mic bar that I could replace with one from another version of the software or is it corrupt....officially lost at this point
    ......

    I would go ahead and wipe/reload. I understand that is a crude load of work but i would be lost with out SayIt. Maybe someone can rip the appropriate module out of the loader for you. Good luck.

    Man that is brutal, well I will try that only takes an hour or so, thanks very much for your help

    I'll give an update, I would imagine I'm not the only one that this has happened to!!

    Quite a few people use Sayit so just for that this will be good to solve

    Cheerz

    Well update,

    I've wiped my phone reloaded 1925, then reloaded my backup, and I still have the issue with the mic

    Both talking tom and Sayit do not work

    Could it be something corrupt in my backup?

    I am totally at a lose as to why my mic works for the voice control that comes imbedded and of course the phone but does not for third party apps one of which is an approved BlackBerry one

    Any assistance is appreciated

    Could be something with your backup, yeah.
    Most of the time, the Settings part of the Backup is what carries problems into a new leak.

    I would try a wipe / fresh install of 1925.
    Without any restore, try installing Sayit and Talking Tom and see if your mic works.
    At least that will rule out whether it's a backup/restore issue.

    If you're good there, you could try just restoring your Application Data and Media from your backup and see if you're still good.

    Not a lot of fun, but that's all I can really think of, and the only way to rule out if it's a backup/restore issue.

    That sounds like a good plan as soon as I have some time, looks like a few hours I'll try that

    Thanks again

    So I have tried a wipe and a fresh install of 1925.

    With a base install, no restore, I installed individually Sayit, Sound hound, and Talking tom neither of them worked.

    The reason I tried Sound hound is that I had this app working at the 10.2.0 release level, but it stopped working when I installed 1055, I thought it was Sound hound because an update was released right around when I did that

    Looks now Like 1055 has wrecked my third party apps from accessing the microphone
    Not sure what I have left other than go back to the official release of 10.2.0.### and then update from there to 1925

    Download it via Snap, android apps work better for me when they're installed through the Snap app.

    Ok, do this.

    In BBWorld download BlackBerry Virtual Expert

    Run through the tests for microphone, make sure it comes back fine

    If that doesnt work, do the following:

    Run the autoloader for 1925
    When completed, wipe the device
    Restore apps and media without settings
    try to use SNAP to download the APK
    Test the apps.
