What are the best apps for recording calls? (self.androidapps)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — heredago @ 20:55


I use CallRecorder. It’s paid, but it does everything the way I need it to and is exactly what you’re looking for. Along with AlsaMix, it’s able to record the audio directly from both the microphone (for your voice) and the output to the speaker (other party’s voice). Also has built in file management (delete after x days, etc) and it labels all files with proper names/phone numbers.

CallRecorder was the only app I could find that supported recording both sides of the

conversation. AlsaMixer also took care of any volume problems.



I use Sanity and it works perfect. It automatically records every phone call and saves them in a folder that can be accessed from your gallery.
