Best recording app out there. When I was being stalked, threatened and harassed by phone, I was elated when I found Tape A Call. I told the stalker he was being recorded, turned on the beep (signaling call is being recorded), but he was so psychotic he didn't care. In fact he told me no one would believe me because anyone can create fake recordings. The judge sided with me since I did follow the law in recording him. 3 yrs have passed since a warrant & Peace Order was obtained, and he started calling again bc another girl is taking him to court for stalking. He claims I urged her but I don't even know her and she lives faraway. So before I blocked his new number, I tried to get as much info as I could (like is he in town with a gun?). I told him to hold on, that I was working and launched Tape a Call. I feel safe and he's blocked. So anyone with a stalker, an abusive ex, or if you have a feeling the call is sketchy, ask them to hold on (mute), add call conference, call Tape A Call, merge the calls and continue the conversation. The beep required by law in some states is loud but no one to date has asked me what it is. I love you Tape A Call for my peace of mind!
Very first and very best app I purchased for my iPhone! Records incoming and outgoing calls with a simple push of the big red button. The only flaw is that you have to remember to merge the calls manually; I wish I could sense when both parties were connected and merge automatically. Sound quality is superb. Easily name the file. Share recordings with others. Are use this for two reasons: so I don't miss details about clients' projects, and also as a back up for dealing with customer service idiots. It is so easy to misspell an email address one of the best uses is to be able to listen to it again. Fantastic app – well worth the $10 I spent on it, and even worth 10 times that much. Update: Type a call keeps improving their service by configuring the interface for an even better user experience, and by adding new features such as transcription (which I can’t wait to try!). And it’s still only $10 several years after I first signed up.
If you really need to have explicit proof of who said what even if you aren’t going to use it legally but need absolute accuracy on conversation content this program is for you. It’s a business expense so I don’t care that they charge and annual flat fee because I have confidence that I know what was said in the conversation including myself where I may have mis-spoke or missed a introductory clause on what I’m agreeing to. The best thing of all is you can export it to a cloud service or to email so that you can save it no matter what. If you’re in business you need to know who is committed to you and what you committed to them. I’ve never done anything else that works like this and I don’t have to worry about long winded clients and how much I’m going to pay when I just pay a flat fee each year. Great customer service too!
Just know before you pay for the app that you're only paying for one year of the service. The way they've set this up doesn't make it obvious. I mean, honestly, all I have to go on is the rep I emailed with because normally, when it's a subscription service, it says so when you are authorizing the charge and on the receipt AND it would show up in iTunes under Subscriptions, but none of those places show TapeACall. The only places that mention anything about one year of unlimited recording (which is the service, by the way, and not an add-on), are the app description and the email I got after I paid for the app. Can you guys please fix this? I'm sure there are Apple best practices to go by, and you certainly aren't following them. It feels very deceptive. If it's $10 a year, fine. Say it's $10 a year. Don't say "oh, it's $10 for the PRO app but psych, you can't use it after a year"? Like seriously, who has even ever heard of buying the same app again to renew your a subscription? How does that even work? It's always done via in-app purchases, which isn't what this was. I still think you guys are full of it.
I’ll jump straight to the con. The con is that you have to merge calls with another that is doing the recording. So if you are making a call you have to click over to the recording app, call the app # and merge the calls for the recording to begin. Luckily I am usually using this for business purposes and there is always 2-3 minutes of options to push so the interruption is ok. When someone calls in or answers immediately I have to ask them to hold in order to merge the recording number. Which is very odd to them. Sometimes I miss out on important recordings because of this. That aside I am using this app because my insurance company and Dr. seem to be up to shady business. This has absolutely been a lifesaver! No more scribbling notes, dates, phone numbers, or anything else. I get it all on recording. Also it just so happens I am catching discrepancies in the process. Great app!
