- Question: Isn’t there an app for this?
- Answer: Microsoft won’t allow any app in the Skype Store that uses the Windows’s built-in recorder to record calls. So-called “free” apps are nothing more than external, 3rd-party services that charge per-minute fees or require a subscription. The calls that you make and receive via these types of apps/services must be re-routed through a special switch. You almost always have to call a special number or enter a special code to start recording. In other words, you cannot make and receive calls naturally. Of course, this is not a problem if you don’t mind explaining to the person you’re calling why it is you have to interrupt the call, or why it is you have a different phone number. Apps that do record calls using your phone’s built-in recorder may exist only for “jail broken” iPhones. However, you should should be aware that jail breaking your iPhone voids the warranty and may lead to operating system instability, so it’s not a good idea.
