While call recording software might seem similar on the surface, what app you decide to use can make all the difference in terms of recording quality, recording features, and ease of use. This article will examine the differences between five free call recording apps so you can make an educated decision about which one you’d like to use.
TapeACall is one of the easiest apps you can use to record a call, and is available to iPhone and Android users in two capacities: in a free version, and in a paid version. The paid version will get you a ton of useful features, and will allow you to tape new calls as well as calls that are in process. Features of the paid version include unlimited recording, no hidden “per minute” fees, access to recordings in downloadable MP3 format, the ability to share your recordings with other people, and more. If you’d like to check out more of the paid version features, click here. Otherwise, keep reading to find out more about the free version.
The free iPhone and Android versions of TapeACall will allow you to listen to up to 60 seconds of your recorded phone call, but will require an upgrade after that. Since this is a professional app, the recording quality of the calls will be top-of-the-line, and there isn’t a limit on the number of recordings you can make and download. After you purchase the $9.99 paid version, your recordings can also be as long as you need them to be — hours, if needed. This free call recorder app is definitely one of the best out there in terms of the number of features available and professional call recording quality.
Google released a free way for users to listen to their recorded calls: Google Voice. While Google Voice is free, you won’t be able to use your regular phone and phone number to record your calls; you can only use your Google Voice phone number to record them. It is free, though, so if you don’t mind that, this might be a viable free call recorder app for you. It’s not currently possible to record outgoing calls with the recording feature. After you’ve finished your recording, you can listen to the calls on your PC, Android phone, iPhone, or iPad. There are not too many features and options available with the recording option within Google Voice, but recording files are available for download, and it is completely free.
Call Recorder by Boldbeast is a free app you can use on many Android phones to record your calls. The free version allows you to manage recordings, share recordings with others, and the developer’s website claims that it is easy to use. Also included on the developer’s website is a list of issues that might arise during recording, and the list includes bad (weak) sound quality, problems hearing the caller’s voice, and a few other various potential problems that can arise. There is a $9.99 premium version available as well.
Call Recorder FREE
Call Recorder FREE by Component Studios is a free app that allows you to record calls on your iPhone, but it isn’t available for Android. In order to share your recordings with other people, you must purchase the premium upgrade, which costs $9.99. The free version is easy to use, and allows you to record both incoming and outgoing calls.
iPadio is a free app that allows you to record your calls on the iPhone and (alternatively) broadcast them to the world. iPadio is easy to set up and use, and allows you to play your recordings back, as well as download, edit, or delete them. You can also share your recordings with another person or people. iPadio is only available on iPhone.
