They could exist numerous motives whereby a user wants to record a phone call. The scale is wide and can range from the need to gather evidence for a trial, to conduct telephone interviews and then have a copy of the conversation to work on it. Regardless of what our goals are, it is good to know that there is a simple and free way to generate copies of all calls we make and these will be stored in the memory of our device.
We have specifically tested two tools To record calls. Each has its positive points where they stand out from the other, however, both offer good quality in their free version. Then both have a payment method that extends the functions. If we need this feature to work, for example, acquire any of the two variants of payment It may be interesting, however, to make a timely or sporadic use it will not really be necessary to pay for the application.
Automatic Call Recorder, download and basic features
From Automatic Call Recorder (or Call Recorder, as it has been translated in Castilian) we like many things, for example, it has a clean style interface material design, is free and intuitive. In addition, it automatically synchronizes with Google Drive Y Dropbox to upload conversations to our cloud account.
The sound recording is of great quality, however, we found a small "but" and it cannot be installed on tablets that do not incorporate phone function. One might think, what else does it not work if we are talking on a tablet strangely on the phone? what happens is that we will also be losing the possibility to save calls by Skype or by Hangouts.
As we say, in the Play Store we will find a basic free version and a paid version whose price is 5.99 euros.
Another Call Recorder, our favorite option
The other app (Call Recording) seems more complete. Mainly because of the fact that it does work on tablets, although the recording of phone calls It will always offer us higher quality, since this tool, like the previous one, takes the sound directly from the microphones of the device.
Another point in favor is that it has many more options to make backup copies of calls (Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.), it even offers a possibility with which we will send a copy of the audio to our email. In addition, the paid version is somewhat cheaper with a price of 1.99 euros.
One of the particular issues of this application is that when entering for the first time she will force us to affirm that in the country in which we are there is no law that prevent recording calls (if we accept it is our responsibility), which means that in some places there may be legal obstacles. So depending on where you are you must pay attention to this aspect.
We must also appeal to ethics of the user and it is almost not necessary to remember that it is complimentary to inform the interlocutor that a conversation is being recorded.
