Recording phone calls can be important sometimes either for personal or professional use. However, it's such a daunting task at times to choose the right recorder for calls with clear sound either for your iPhone or your Android device.
Unfortunately, neither Android nor iOS devices have built-in ways to record calls. So if you want to know the appropriate apps to use then you are in the right place. Forget using one phone to record sound on the other phone, the ambient noises from the background can be annoying and disruptive. Here are some that you should check out if you're looking for an app to record your calls:
Call Recorder - With the ability to record all incoming and outgoing calls on your Android phone, this call recorder app is by far the best in the market. It offers various features such as auto delete old recording, password protects recordings, delayed recording and cloud service integration. While the app is available for free, it also has paid version with a few other features particularly the cloud service integration is part of the paid for services of the app.
Automatic Call Recorder - Is another option for Android users, where they can record any phone calls you want and choose which calls you want to save. You can set which calls are recorded and which are ignored. Listen to the recordings, add notes and share it. Integration with Google Drive and Dropbox allows calls to be saved and synchronized to the cloud as well.
On the other hand, iPhone does not make it easy to record phone calls, but it doesn't necessarily mean its impossible. You can either try TapeACall or even use your voicemail (if your phone has support for a three-way calling and a visual voicemail).
TapeACall - It allows you to record your incoming and outgoing calls on your iPhone. No limit on long recordings, neither on the number of recordings. Unlike Android, iOS does not have a completely free call recorder. TapeACall will give users a 7-day free trial to record as much as they want but after the free trial, you can subscribe for $3.99 to access the service on a monthly basis.
Voicemail - It's a long shot but it works. When you're on a call, wait for the add call button to light up, so you can (add) a third caller via 3-way calling. Tell the other person to wait, click the button, and call yourself. Stay on the line and listen to your own voice mail, merge calls. All three calls are merged—and the third one (your voice mail) records the other two. Later, you can access the recording like you would any other voice mail message
Those are some of the ways to record calls either on your Android or your iPhone.
Disclaimer! It's very important to record calls having consent from the other party, it won't hurt to tell them you are recording the calls so that you make sure you are not breaking any laws.
