It is implemented in original Java programs. It serves as an excellent demonstration of what is more possible with Android devices when it comes to technology wise. Identically, Ringdroid application works on the emulator and mobile G1 devices such as Android.

Ringdroid application uses the Android SDK in recording, playing, and searching media files. Android SDK is used in playing the audio files. Apparently, the Android SDK does not include any functionality for decompressing and opening compressed audio files. Because of this, the application only implements for natural Java audio file parsers. Parsers do not decompress audio files completely instead, they need to frame and parse headers. In addition, parsers need just enough information from every audio frame in creating crude representation of the waveform.

Ringdroid app has an audio file library that copies the entire audio frames from the original files and forms them into a valid file with similar format. The library also allows you to save file. With the natural or original Java codes, there is no occurrence of compression or decompression of audio files.
