    Hey folks. Is there an app out there on the market that can record calls? I tried allcallrecord but it doesn't seem to work.

    Check out Call Trunk -- we have a nice Android app for recording calls. Easy and quick, cloud-based, keeps the call saved and available forever, free for the first 25 minutes. Contact me at ted@calltrunk.com for more information.

    Does it record both sides of the conversation?
    How much?

    Yes, it records both sides of the conversation. It costs $0.04 per minute, but the first 25 minutes are free.

    Why not just make an app that stores the call locally instead of charging for cloud storage?

    Well, this architecture is more flexible, and its more convenient. You can initiate a recorded call from any web interface, whether it be smartphone or desktop. And the recorded calls are immediately available online for sharing, editing, transcribing, etc.

    We don't charge for storage, btw. The charge is because of the unavoidable per minute costs to the phone companies for access to POTS. We'd love to make it free.

    I get where you're coming from, I really do. But you'd sell A LOT more apps by developing a beep free, automatic phone recording app that stores the calls locally.

    For one, it's not a good idea (legally speaking) to have all of your phone calls automatically stored on someone else's server. Backup tapes could be subject to subpoena. Storing the phone calls on the phone provides the user much more flexibility.

    Again, do what you want to do. I'm just telling you that the consumer wants the EXACT same function that was available two to three years ago on virtually every smartphone made (iphone excluded).

    One last thought on this. I'm sure some of the reluctance that developers have centers around the fact that the laws do differ on recording phone calls.

    How much trouble would it be to have the software account for the legal differences? For example, have the application query the assigned phone number (or even utilize gps information) to determine whether single party recording is legal for that call.

    CallTrunk Review ?

    No personal offense Ted, but i tried the calltrunk service and i thought it was a pain in the butt to use. not to mention wasnt impressed by the quality. aftergoogling calltrunk a few times i didnt see much of a review but if i were to write one, id had to give it a two thumbs down. u guys have a lot to work on.

    on the other hand, the apps are also a pain to use

    Hmm, well if you found the native app to be a pain, you can always go to the mobile website at: http://m.calltrunk.com. Even easier way to make a recorded call. Works off of any browser (iphone, windows, treo, etc).

    Google Voice only records inbound calls to your Google Voice number... not very useful if you don't happen to have one.
