This example shows how to record an audio in android and save it in your path and send it as an email attachment.
This example is taken from the developers website.
Note : You should run this on the device otherwise it will not work.

This example will open up an email client after recording and attach it to the email client.
Remember that your device should have the email client application and you should be logged in otherwise you will get the error as “No Application can perform this action
