Every time I try to use this to a record a phone call, when I go to add the call the whole app freezes and won’t let me access the call (which is still ringing btw). The only way to hang up my phone call is to restart my phone. Major bug ruins the entire experience. I paid $10 for nothing.
Works great! 5/5
Very convenient. No problems. Good experiences with customer service.
What a nuisance 1/5
To record a call I must dial into another number and then join the two calls.... I regret buying this app... what a joke
Great app 5/5
Writer in a Pinch 5/5
I had been trying all these “free” recording apps only to learn they had limited time and/or features. I had to interview someone for a story the next morning and decided to purchase Tape-a-Call. Best decision ever! I learned how to use it in minutes and the playback is sharp and the speed can be controlled. Also, switching off and back on to break up long taping sessions into smaller segments is a breeze. Highly recommend.
If you want your phone to mess up, get this! 1/5
So I had this app on my iPhone for less than a week. Why you may ask? Because within a couple of days my phone started doing weird things like...
I Reset my data counter every month at 11:00 pm the night of the 1st per alarm. So on Oct 12th it said I had used up 2.9 GB. Turned data off then back on and it said suddenly that I had only used 816MB even though I never hit reset until the 1st of the month. Called phone co and they said I had used 3.9 GB.
Also, the phone was freezing up on me a lot. It froze in the settings, on reading some articles, etc. I have NEVER gone on questionable websites or downloaded things I’m not supposed to.
Then when I did a hard reset and turned it back on it showed the white Apple screen then goes black for a cpl seconds and then shows the white Apple screen again.
I checked my email and it wouldn’t stop saying it’s checking my mail even after the LTE stopped spinning.
ALL of these issues went away when I simply deleted this app! You should be doing a better job of checking these apps #Apple #AppStore. Creepy!
Btw, the print is larger because I noted all these issues so I can warn my thousands of followers. Yeesh!
Tape a call review from Tim Curtin 3/5
By Tim Curtin
The app works pretty well but it would be nice if it could be set up as a switch to automatically record calls incoming and out going as a feature. That would be a good option under settings to include
Easy to usa 5/5
By Bob H in Florida
Once you get used to it, it's very easy to use.
It is not real برنامج لا يعمل في الدول العربيه وغير حقيقي i need a refund
Works like a charm 5/5
By Jodi Journo
I have all kinds of recording devices as I do podcasts and I’m a journalist. This is the easiest way to record. I just started using tape a call. So far, so good.
Great app, I love it! 5/5
Great sound, no time or storage limit & fast downloads, I do recommend it to anyone!
If someone calls me it takes too long to setup the recording and I haven't been able to use it at all in that scenario.... very unhappy .
I love it. Easy and will recommended to friends
Doesn't work 1/5
I followed the instructions but it won't work😢😢..I'd like a refund
Pretty Good 5/5
By iPhone owner in WY
The beginning of my first recording was kind of breaking up and think it was due to connection, not app. So far it is working really well.
Works really good!! 3/5
I just hate that I need to merge a call for it to work. If there was only a way I can just hit record call instead of calling another number to merge it would be a lot better. I’m just not sure if a conversation is private bcz of merging.
The Best 5/5
The best recording app. Helpful with my freelance journalism during phone interviews. So easy to use.
I make over 1200 phone calls a month on my android platform I have an option to record all phone calls each drop off one by one after 1000 phone calls. The most important ones I can Auto save and it will be clouded in dropbox or any other platform.this is the second app I have purchase for automatic recording.Also I paid $10 for it and it’s good for life not a year.
Legal, saved me THOUSANDS!!! 5/5
So this app has saved me thousands of dollars!! I recorded a call with an attorney making statements of X,Y,Z and those statements were completely FALSES AND LIES!! He thought "I getting away with it, what's he (me the client) is going to do, sue me... hahaha I'm a lawyer and he isn't!!" Well when he found out that I recorded the call LEGALLY he not only refunded me thousands but also I'm now a key witness in a federal case against him, along with many LEGAL RECORDINGS! He is facing being disbarred, which he deserves, how many others did he screw for years!??!!! Justice is being served via TapeACall!!
One call was over 45 minutes and recorded great and downloaded fine!
Love the shortened URL to download the audio file!
FYI, many states are "single party acknowledge", so when TapeACall makes its call and places the other party on hold, just state "I agree to this call being recorded" and then merge the call!)
While I don't like not being able to save locally, it isn't a limitation of the app but a limitation of iOS!
This was NOT a paid review but a happy customer that saved thousands!!
Brilliant app; does not work in my country 1/5
By Shahjehan S
I wish the app has a local number for my country (Pakistan) so I can use it more often. To use an international number to have my call recorded on costs me an arm and a leg. Can you please look into this?
Great app 5/5
By Luis Ruffan
Doesn’t work 1/5
By London Prof
I followed instructions, but the ‘merge calls’ function does not work so the app is useless.
SMS message 1/5
I've bought the app but can't get the app to send me the SMS needed to register and use the app.
Update, I've been back and forth with the developer and was finally told that I would just have to keep uninstalling then reinstalling until the app began to work.
VOICE RESPONSE SYSTEM DOES NOT RECEIVE TONES. CAN NOT NAVIGATE VRS SYSTEM. Poop! :(
Best in the market so far. 5/5
By Con U man
It works flawlessly and delivers its promises. Well worth it.
Great app! Need a few features added 4/5
By Rob Sutton
Need to add a hot key to quickly insert current time-date when naming saved calls.
Need to add option to record locally to device for short calls with super quick access, without having to place caller on hold while dialing and merging other call.
I love this iPhone application! Just my thoughts on how you could better the Program.

I’ve been using this app for about 4 years and i don’t have any complaints at all. Great work around for recording , I like it!
Unauthorized charge 1/5
I didn't think I'd be forced to buy the app. Thanks for charging my account. I did not authorize the purchase
Handy App 5/5
Use it all the time. Good customer support. Easy to use. Only complaint is when my subscription was up and I needed to upgrade a little pesky upgrade ad appeared that if I tapped on it would have been more expensive than renewing through the apple App Store.
By Birch Boys Chaga LLC
Simple. Effective. Reasonable Price. Use it all the time!
Great app but lacking support 3/5
The app itself is great. It does exactly what it should, and it does it well.
However when I got an error today I had no way to report it, either through their app, or the website.
Record conf call trainings! 5/5
I've been using this app along with Camtasia to record training webinars to put online for our teams... it's working swimmingly.
It will not let you record an incoming call 2/5
It will not let you record an incoming call
Resulta que pago 10$ por está App y me salen con que no es compatible para mí estado
Terrible estafa no saben dónde se puede denunciar esto o que hacer para que me devuelvan mis amigos 10$
The best option for now 3/5
I do a lot of interviews over the phone and I read that this was the app to get to record, but after using it for a month now I'm starting to realize it needs some work.
It's very convenient to have and I haven't had any major errors but mostly it's the sound quality that puts me off. Most interview sound like I'm listening through a hole in the door and it's scratchy or has lots of static. It makes it hard to run through a transcribing app. Other than that it has been really useful but I don't intend to have this as a long-term solution.
This has helped my career! 5/5
By Erin Donley
As a nonfiction ghostwriter, it's crucial to interview my clients and use their exact words when writing their books. TapeACall has been a seamless, and best of all, I feel confident that "everything's working" during my interviews. I've also had my calls transcribed with Rev, and it was fast and inexpensive. Thank you for this terrific modern-day technology.
Great app longTimeUser 4/5
By BAILEYS DEN
Tasks in this new world, misunderstandings , and lies Miss leads. Ya you have to do it the same way Ps knowing that helps lol. Never let me down . Just finished a support chat with Brian, all my questions were answered immediately, I will have to join those that appreciate this simple to use app and also feel at ease while using it .
Very simple. Works great. 5/5
By Ch in ny
I just need to remember to use it more! Unlimited calls, unlimited length, low annual cost. Worth it to me.
Very good 5/5
Don't know who writes these 5 start reviews but maybe they got paid by the developers? I paid for the pro version. Instructions indicate recording starts when you merge calls UNTRUE! recording DOESNT stray until some random place about 30 seconds into the recording when you see the CONFERENCE text illuminate. There is nothing about this "conference" activation in instructions. It's not even mentioned. I've tested it now 4 times and each time there is 30-60 seconds of dead silence in which I "thought" I was re riding when in fact it wasn't! Annoying and exhausting to use. I want my 10 bucks back.
Very staticky on The playback 2/5
By NW sports reporter
I really wish I could have heard the poor quality before making the purchase. The app works correctly but it is almost unbearable to listen to the playback and impossible to share it as I had hoped.
Never could get it work 1/5
By no tekkie
And I can't figure out how to delete and stop paying for this app. Please help
Ideal for Journalisfs 5/5
Works exactly like it says it will. I have to record multiple interviews for my job every day.
Awesome App 4/5
Best call recording app for non-jail broken devices-!
Kicks me off 1/5
Every time I use it kicks me out while I'll recording
I only wish there was a way to transfer voice to text, but I could be asking for too much. I love it. Very reliable.
Takes WAY to long to connect the call and have a person wait it - say hey hold on a sec- what if it's SUPER important from my doctor- then I can go back and remember what he said- EVEN WORSE when they call you- it's completely suspicious and anyone with an iPhone app just the same all know what you're doing.
Android has one that makes it a BREEZE!
Wish so bad you all could have had that in YOUR App Store - sooo much more convenient- and yes - I even enabled the "extra" button I read about to auto start calls - going in to the record app and it was supposed to immediately easily - do the work for you and not take 30 ODDDD SEC to connect - and yes I have t-mobile and my iPhone meets all the qualifications that ALL THE FINE PRINT reads-very very upsetting

Deceptive billing/terms 2/5
Just know before you pay for the app that you're only paying for one year of the service. The way they've set this up doesn't make it obvious. I mean, honestly, all I have to go on is the rep I emailed with because normally, when it's a subscription service, it says so when you are authorizing the charge and on the receipt AND it would show up in iTunes under Subscriptions, but none of those places show TapeACall. The only places that mention anything about one year of unlimited recording (which is the service, by the way, and not an add-on), are the app description and the email I got after I paid for the app. Can you guys please fix this? I'm sure there are Apple best practices to go by, and you certainly aren't following them. It feels very deceptive. If it's $10 a year, fine. Say it's $10 a year. Don't say "oh, it's $10 for the PRO app but psych, you can't use it after a year"? Like seriously, who has even ever heard of buying the same app again to renew your a subscription? How does that even work? It's always done via in-app purchases, which isn't what this was. I still think you guys are full of it.
If you need a security tool, this is the app 5/5
I like this app. Excellent
