‘Locked up’ nature of Apple devices have some pros but, unquestionably, there are some cons to it also. On one side, there is an excess of various options, while on the other we are unable to work out some simple things.
The good example is call recording directly from your device. Who would think that such premium device is unable to execute such a simple task? In the Apple’s defense, the privacy laws are forbidding the recording of calls in some states including the USA. That, of course, haven’t stopped third-party solutions to earn a formidable amount of money for this service.
Today, we are presenting you the best free apps that enable you to record a call on your iPhone. The paid solutions are arguably better performing but they come at the price. So if you are not keen to spend a lot on call recording premium apps, you’ll find some viable options on this list.
Note: All of the listed apps require 3 way-calls option on your iPhone.
Record My Talk Free
Record My Talk Free is not ‘free’ in the sense you would imagine. Yes, in a free version you’ll get all the premium-like features but there is a catch. Playback of the recordings is limited to 60 seconds. If that isn’t a deal-breaker for you, this app is worth trying out. At least you get to know what are you buying in case you decide to spend some money.
When it comes to the features, Record My Talk offers:
- User-friendly interface.
- Recording option for both incoming and outgoing calls.
- Organizing your recordings.
- Sharing any of your recordings via email or social networks.
- Synchronization with the PC.

Google Voice is, on the first sight, somehow similar with Edgin Call Recorder. Namely, it is free but requires an account created on Google Voice site. And there all of the similarities stop.
This application is one of, if not the best solution for VOIP calls with call recording addition. And much more features that are not related to the subject. Nevertheless, there is, and you can probably guess by now, the catch. You can record and save a full length of incoming calls. But not the outgoing ones. Additionally, you are obligated to port your number ti Google Voice, in order to record in the first place.
Google Voice update is near so we hope that some of the call recording features can be upgraded.
