How to record phone calls on a smartphone?

aiden

I often record business calls for transcription. I live in a state where it is legal even without asking, as long as one party is aware, and it is a fairly common practice. It’s easy enough on a landline - I just press the record button on a recorder - but how can you do it on an android smartphone?

There are apps that can do it for you, as the earlier poster mentioned. Another app that you might want to look at is MP3 InCall Recorder & Voice, which is available on Google Play. It is particularly good at making decent quality recording while also keeping file size relatively small.

Our team in Sweden noticed this as a feaure lacking on both iOS and Android phones and therefore we are currently funding our kickstarter: SPARA, a tiny device which you can use to record conversations.  check out our promotion at kickstarters website.

How to Automatically Record Calls on Android and Never Run Out Of Space
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-automatically-record-calls-on-androi...

"To automatically record calls on Android is tricky for two main reasons:
It’s a thorny legal issue: First and foremost, recording your own phone calls may not be legal in your country. I think that’s unfair (they’re your calls, after all, and the NSA probably already has a copy of them anyway), but life isn’t always fair. So, the first tricky part is figuring out if you’re allowed to record calls, and whether you must tell the other side you’re recording. In some countries, even if both parties know about the recording, that would still be violating the law. Wikipedia offers some help in the form of an article about telephone recording laws. That’s a good starting point for figuring out whether or not you’re even allowed to record calls. Do your homework, or you might get into a very unpleasant legal situation.

It’s a finicky technical problem: Even if you’re allowed to record calls and use them as evidence, chances are the first call recording app you’ll pick isn’t going to work right off the bat. That may have something to do with the fact call recording is a low-level system function, but regardless of the reason, actually getting a call recorder to work requires some persistence and a strategy. That’s what I’ll try to help you with."

I use an app called Call Recorder Galaxy S2 S3 S4 by killer mobile on my Samsung Galaxy S2. You will have to root your device to use this app.

Note: Before we even get started, it could be illegal to record someone without them knowing in your country. That’s why call center agents often ask for permissions before recording a call. Check out the laws before breaking them, I know it can be tempting.
