Retrieve AMR Files on Mac OS X

What are AMR files?

AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) is an audio file format developed by Ericsson. This audio file format is created for mobile phones for voice or sound recording (audio recordings, voice messages, voice memo, etc). One can play .amr audio recording on many media players such as QuickTime, Real Player, VLC and other players on both Windows and Mac operating system. If any need arises, you even convert AMR file to compatible audio format such as MP3, MP4, WMA, AIF, WAV, etc using specific audio converter software’s.

How you will lose or delete your precious .amr audio files?

In daily life many people use to record sound or voice to store memories of some particular funny or special events. Usually most of the users prefer to transfer those AMR audio files to system or other device in order to backup or free the storage space in cell phones.
