Best Call Recorder Apps for iPhone

So you want to record a call on your iPhone, but notice there is no way to do it? Don’t fret. There are plenty of call recorder apps on the app store. All you need to do is download a good one and record the next important call to keep for your records.

However, that’s easier said than done. There are many apps out there, and finding the right one can be quite tricky. That is why we’ve broken down the best options on today’s market and analyzed what makes them so special.

1. Call Recorder Pro

Call Recorder Pro does exactly what it says it will, record all calls. This app is perfect for those who want to catch someone in a lie or who need to keep a call for their records. It’s extremely easy to use and has all the features you need to record any call, incoming or outgoing.

Let’s jump back to the easy-to-use part. This is one of the simplest call recorder apps on the market. All you need to do is get in a call, open the app, and push the record button. The app will then start a 3-way call, allowing their datacenter to record the call as the 3rd member. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

We’ve found that sometimes data will be lost during the recording process, giving files that simply will not open. This is rare though, and the app tends to be quite reliable. The bigger issue is the lack of a “scrubbing” feature, which means you can’t fast forward or rewind in the app when listening to the call.

What We Like:

  • Easy to use
  • Great call quality
  • Relatively low cost

What We Don’t Like:

  • Files seem to get corrupted some times
  • Can’t easily fast forward or rewind if transcribing

2. CallTap

CallTap may be one of the lesser known call recording apps on the App Store, but that doesn’t make it any less great. This app is fantastic, and it comes with great features and reasonable pricing. The app developer is quite active, keeping it up to date and fixing any bugs that appear.

The word that comes to mind with this app is “unlimited.” That’s because you get both unlimited amounts of call storage, as well as unlimited call time to make sure you catch every word of the conversation. Just remember, the longer the conversation, the longer the transcription will take.

Sharing your recordings is super simple, and you can do it over a number of platforms. It doesn’t matter if you use DropBox, iCloud, or Google Drive, you’ll be able to save and share them with ease. Having the ability to easily share makes this a great option for those who love simplicity.

What We Like:

  • No limit on call time
  • Unlimited amount of recordings
  • Easy to share the recordings

What We Don’t Like:

  • Issues with files not saving at times
  • Transcription is a bit slow

3. TapeACall Pro

Tapacall

If you’re someone looking for a yearly subscription app that comes with a range of features, the TapACall Pro may be the way to go. This is the best choice for users who need to record a lot of calls, and it is definitely cost effective in terms of full volume.

Instead of the normal pay per minute or hour model most call recorder apps use, TapeACall Pro uses a yearly subscription model. This will give you the ability to use it without limits, and there’s no need to worry about running out of minutes or “recharging” your account.

This app’s user interface is great. Nice and sleek in design, making the overall function easy to navigate and use. That makes up for the lack of support here, as you shouldn’t need to contact them if the app works all of the time.

What We Like:

  • No cost per minute
  • Simple and sleek user interface
  • Transcribe any call

What We Don’t Like:

  • Has issues with some cell phone carriers
  • Support is lackluster

4. Rev Call Recorder

Rev is a well known brand in the transcription space, so it makes sense that they make an app for their potential customers to record their calls. The best part of this app, is that it is totally and completely free and there are no sneaky in-app purchases.

The call quality is really good here. When you listen back to your recorded calls they are nice and clear, without any muffling or buzzing. That is a problem that plagues some of these apps, but Rev does a great job. The actual merging of the calls is a bit slow, so if you start mid call you will lose a few seconds of sound while the merging happens.

The one thing that really brings this app down is that it can be a bit confusing. While most apps are minimalistic and easy to use, Rev tends to go the other way and can be a bit much at times. While it will take some time to get used to, it is free and works as intended.

What We Like:

  • Completely free
  • Trusted brand for transcription
  • Good sound quality

What We Don’t Like:

  • A bit confusing to use
  • Merging calls is a bit slow

5. Automatic Call Recorder

First off, don’t be fooled by the name. There is no way to make this app “automatically” record a call for you. You will still need to open the app and tap record, just like all of the other apps on this list. However, aside from the misleading name, the app is actually quite good.

One of the coolest features here is the ability to apply a voice changer to either increase or decrease the pitch. That will mask the caller’s identity, in case you don’t want them to be recognized.

This program is free for a week, and then it charges you on a weekly basis. It’s definitely not the most affordable option, but you should know that going in. If you don’t mind the price, it records calls fine, has a nice interface, and the addition of the voice changer sets it apart from the rest.

What We Like:

  • Easy to use
  • Ability to change voice
  • Text-to-speech works well

What We Don’t Like:

  • Very expensive
  • Doesn’t work well in some countries

6. Re:Call Call Recorder

recallrecorder

The last app on this list is a bit more obscure. We scoured the App Store to try and find an app that wasn’t as mainstream as the other options, and that led us to the Re:Call Call Recorder. Though this is not a well-known app, it has the features needed to compete with similar models.

The best thing about this app is its simple interface. Anyone can easily navigate through past recordings, record a call, or save recordings as they need. No hassles here!

That being said, we are not fans of the buy credits system here. The monthly or yearly subscription services in other apps tend to be much easier to follow and enable you to know exactly what you need to pay. Despite that, this is a great lesser-known option.

What We Like:

  • Super simplistic
  • Unlimited recordings
  • Easy to scrub through recordings

What We Don’t Like:

  • Have to buy credits
  • From a small publisher (support questionable)

Final Words

The above apps are six of the best call recording apps on the market. Each of them have their pros and cons, but all are very capable of doing great things. No matter which one you choose, we know you’ll be happy and able to get a recording that is clear and clean.
