There are a lot of personal and professional reasons to record phone calls. Maybe you’d like to have a record of a team conference call so you can keep track of who agreed to which action items. If you’re a journalist, you might need to record interviews so you can refer to them when it’s time to write your story. Or, perhaps you’d just like to record a call with your contractor during a home renovation to ensure that they stick to their end of the bargain.
Whatever your reason for recording phone calls, the first step is to determine what state and federal laws apply, especially if you don’t want anyone on the other line to know you’re recording. The last thing you want is to end up in court because you didn’t realize a call was recorded illegally.
The second step is to find the perfect app for recording your phone call. Here are some of the best ones out there.
The name says it all. This app from No Notes lets you participate in conversations on the phone without needing to take notes simultaneously. You can record up to 20 minutes per month for free before needing to pay for the app. Once the call is complete, you’ll have an option to transcribe the call. This can be a time saver if you need a textual reference for your conversation and don’t want to spend the time transcribing it yourself. A monthly subscription is $11.99, and an annual subscription is $99.99.
Record incoming and outgoing calls on your iPhone with TapeACall. There are no limits on how long the recording can last or how many recordings you can make. The app costs $10.99 per year. After paying for it, you won’t get charged for any of the calls you record. Once the call ends, you can easily download the recording to a number of platforms, including Evernote, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
Download the Rev Call Recorder for your iPhone for free, then use it to record an unlimited number of calls. An automatic privacy disclosure plays at the beginning of each call, ensuring that you comply if you’re in a two-party state. When the call ends, share and export the recording to several platforms, including SMS, email, and Dropbox. You can also buy a transcription from a human transcriber for a flat rate of $1.25 per audio minute.
Available for iPhone, the Re: Call app records domestic and international incoming and outgoing calls. Use your number or a different private phone number every time you record a call. Monthly plans start at $9.99 a month. Additional phone numbers start at $6.99 a month.
iPhone users can record incoming and outgoing calls with CallRec Lite. The lite version records your entire call, but you can only listen to the first minute. Upgrade to a monthly subscription for $6.99 a month to hear the rest of your call. Listen to it from the app or email a link to yourself and download it to your computer.
