I am an editor for two newspapers. I write, photograph and do my own layout. It’s an exhaustive amount of work, but good help is hard to come by. I’ve been using tape a call for years and it makes my job actually possible. I had a problem once with one recording not showing up on my playback list, but they recovered it for me by the end of the day.
Why are you trying to charge a monthly/yearly fee after I already purchasedthe app and have 2/5
Why are you trying to charge a monthly/yearly fee after I already purchased the app and have been using it for over a year. When I purchased it there was no monthly/ yearly fee. How is it okay to come back and decide to just start charging a fee after the app was purchased without the fee?
Bait and switch 1/5
When I purchased TapeACall Pro 1 year ago it was $9.99/year but instead of renewing for $9.99 my opinions are now $3.99/month or $19.99/year. It seems to me if I buy a service for $9.99/year then that’s what it should be. I had to accept an agreement allowing a $9.99 renewal but now you want more. Thanks but I’ll shop around.
An excellent app that truly WORKS! 5/5
I just used this app while on the phone with a technical support person. I did let the technician know that I was recording both sides of the call. The technician readily approved of my recording and I’m very happy to say that the technician treated me with the utmost respect and solved my problem. This app rates 100% and much more than five stars. I’m happy that I purchased it and would recommend it to all!
Clumsy and unusable 1/5
By Jim Sitton
I want my money back.
Just discovered these guys have been charging me every month last few months. I noticed nothing about it being a recurring charge and would never have thought that was a possibility.
Can’t use since update after paying $10 1/5
Since there update they are now asking for a subscription. Basically they stole my money and now have my recordings held hostage. The restore purchases does nothing.
Automatic renewal without permission and no refund 1/5
By Frequent auser
The app is good. But it automatically renewed my subscription for one year because I forgot to deactivate auto renewal. I tried to cancel it and get my money back but there’s so option for refund. Once it’s renewed, the cancellation applies to the next annual renewal. Very duplicitous practice.
Never worked 1/5
I followed all procedures and it never worked.
Can not record incoming calls only outgoing?! 2/5
By Sam I am_84
Out going calls record, but incoming calls DO NOT RECORD!? Please address!
The app doesn’t support my phone number region. 1/5
I am from Myanmar and the app doesn’t support my region so I want a refund since I can’t use this app.
Not working 1/5
I purchased the app. It will not work because the number listed for USA is long distance out of the country. And my plan doesn’t have access to long distance calls. I need a refund
Love this app 5/5
Great for my custody case!!
Excellent tool but not entirely reliable 3/5
I’ve used this app for a few days and for several phone calls of varying lengths. Two days in a row, calling two different access numbers, the TapeACall phone service dropped the recording a half hour before my multihour interviews ended. After the first time it happened, the next time I had a long call, I kept checking my phone to be sure no notifications had popped up indicating that the call was dropped. But the second time it happened, despite my checking regularly, I didn’t see a notification until after I had hung up. So I’ve lost a collective hour of interviews over two phone calls. At this point, if you’re using this system, you better have a backup. Either another external recorder or transcribe your interview as you go along (no easy feat).
Cancel my purchase 1/5
Please let me know how can I cancel my purchase of your app.
Too hard to use 1/5
By dig tired
It does not work like the examples. Do NOT waste your money.
Peace of Mind 5/5
Critical converse’s recorded with word search within rev calls 🇺🇸😎☕️⚖️🕊❤️
Only worked for 7 minutes 2/5
The reviews looked good so bought the product. The instructions were not clear that the service dials our to a long distance phone number first before dialing the intended number. But got past that. Then used it to record an interview. After 7 minutes the call failed. So restated the service and it lasted about 2 minutes and failed. Gave it one more try and it failed after 30 seconds. So gave up. My cell service was good so that was not the problem. Was quite disappointed. Seemed like a great product but did not work for me.
Facebook Records Your Call 5/5
By Wendel Butterworth
So if you are interested in having Facebook "machine read" the transcript of your telephone call, then this is the app for you. Yes, it is all there in plain English.
By Papa John1
Can’t make it work!!! Total scam!!!
Paid for the app and now they're charging me again? 1/5
I paid for this app a while ago and after the update now they are trying to charge me a subscription fee!
Not working in Myanmar 1/5
Hi I bought the app and monthly subscription but it doesn’t have local access number for Myanmar. I would like a refund please. You shouldn’t let user purchase it without filtering their country first. I felt ripped off.
Asking me to pay again? 2/5
I purchased this app some time ago and do not use it often. Just opened it to use it again and I am now being prompted to “subscribe”? Very unfair on your part TapeACall
Scam billing 1/5
By Electrical engineer0:&
Overall, the app works pretty well. I purchased this app a year ago with $10 and they never told me it was for a year’s subscription. Dude, I know what is a subscription and what is a purchase. Now you guys force everyone go to subscription billing. Fine, but I don’t like it.
Bought the pro version a few years ago and now have to pay more? 2/5
I bought the $10 pro version of the app a few years ago for school, back when it was a one-time fee. I opened it again recently to use for the first time in maybe 17 months, when lo and behold, my purchase was rendered useless by the app’s switch to a subscription model. The developers should at least try to honor old customers’ purchases instead of screwing them over, maybe? Or at least some notice would have been nice before they switched models. Otherwise, the app works fine most of the time. Back when I used it every week for interviews, there were a few hiccups where it didn’t save my calls, but generally okay. Anyway, that’s rendered pointless because I refuse to pay a subscription fee for this now on top of my original flat fee.
Best App for Recording Phone Call’s 5/5
By Christian MD, MBA
I had tried “RecordiaPro”. Not knocking them but the process was a little cumbersome. Although their quality was good. Tape a Pro is SO EASY and the quality is great, and the download to devices is SO easy, and the price is perfect. Everyone NEEDS this app! (Can you imagine playing your mother-in-law back to herself? HAHA)
Wasted 11 bucks 1/5
It seems you can only record outgoing calls which is totally useless to me. Plus you essentially are just making a 3 way call to some unknown number that is actually doing the recording; it is not being done on your phone. Wish I could get a refund.
Not again 1/5
Not worth the rating whatsoever do not spend your money or $20 out the window.
No Customer Service phone # 1/5
This app while it may be perfectly suitable for others was just not a fit technically for me. I would like to cancel and get a refund but there is no customer service number to call which is frustrating .
It is way to complicated to use and it defeat the purpose of recording a conversation if you don’t want the other person to know.
Needs work 3/5
Needs a way to share the recordings and to turn on speakerphone when playing back recordings
Happy Turned Unhappy 1/5
I purchased full version quite a while back for $9.99 and used it few times. Today, when I opened the app it mentions “Restore Purchases” on top and in the bottom there are two subscription choices. $3.99/month & $19.99/year.
I clicked “Restore Purchases” but it did not work. It maybe because I changed email address I used for Apple ID.
Rest of the apps and their subscriptions worked even with the change put this app did not. Sad that one of the paid app I appreciated turned too greedy and is leaving those early customer behind, who backed them at the very beginning of their journey.
Lack luster 1/5
By leroy 887
I think it should have a feature that records incoming and outgoing calls automatically like a number list that it just picks up the calls it’s very slow to add calls or have to place call on hold to then merge and record especially for think it was $20 i paid for the app
Terrible Scam 1/5
By L e v
Tried over 20 times. Reinstalled and still doesn't even send an sms to begin.
Nothing but a scam.
Tried the "call back" feature and same thing. NOTHING!
How to find records 3/5
I just downloaded gave a test call worked I believe but what to know who’s to find all the recordings
I’ve noticed it’s much faster to delete recordings. In general the app is much quicker then before and all the glitches are gone.
Hidden Carrier Fees - MetroPCS 1/5
I paid for the Pro version, but could not place a call to the recording line, due to restrictions by MetroPCS. MetroPCS and possibly other carriers require an additional service feature, called “Select Shared Calling” by MetroPCS, to allow calls to chat/conference lines, even though I can make three way calls with my current plan. Be sure you check if your phone service provider requires additional features to use this app, before purchasing TapeACall.
Paywall hitting you over one year; at unknown price 1/5
Beware that you are NOT purchasing this app for good, but you ‘prepay’ them only for a while.. For me, it was a year - I know have a paywall blocking my app, asking me to pay either $3.99 per month going forward or $12.99 for another year (on their website, their price is $24.99 for a year). All your old recordings are blocked and they are trying to scam you into a subscription (at ever changing prices....).
Counter productive functionality 1/5
This app isn’t worth the money you pay for it. It takes too long to merge calls. I want to hit a button to record and hit it again to stop! How hard is that? Apparently in a world of high tech gadgetry these programmers can’t figure that part out. Not to mention the playback quality is less than par! You would think that $10.99 would equate to high fidelity, but no! Nothing but disappointment at every turn!
Uses Facebook software to login 1/5
That should have been stated up front.
Person could not hear me 1/5
Terrible. I called two different people, and neither one could hear me. I could hear them, but they could not hear me. Useless.
This app does not record calls automatically. That is ridiculous for an app that costs $20. Better off going with ACR or other free recording apps.
Such an inconvenience to dial into a number, wait for it to answer,then add a call. Or worse, incoming calls need to be placed on hold, then add a call, wait for it to answer, then merge the calls.
Of course none of this is mentioned until after you purchase the app. Disappointing to say the least.
Sharing options limited by new update? 3/5
Only Evernote and Dropbox support for this update. Please bring back the others
Say what? Bait and switch?? 1/5
By Very disappointed new customer
The app says it’s 10.99. When I downloaded I agreed to 10.99. Now as I’m signing in it’s saying it’s 19.99 for the year (or 3.99 a month). What’s up with that? I feel robbed and I haven’t even started using the app yet.
Beep Tones Enforced 1/5
The new version has beep tones enforced. Annoying. Why is this now required?
Annoying beeps 1/5
How on earth does one stop the beeps while recording an audio call. So annoying
Beep Tones MANDITORY 1/5
This application no longer allows you to turn your beep tones on or off. They are continuously ON !!!
This means that people will be guarded in what they say when you are communicating with them.
Additionally, it has now become a subscription service. Prior to this, if you paid for the pro version, it was not a subscription service. Very poor business tactics in my opinion.
This is silly 2/5
By Side ways
I will cancel service because this is simply dialing a 3rd number and using it as a 3 way call! I can use my android for that! 😡
Worst recording app 1/5
By Christine Smith-Williams
I downloaded this app and it doesn’t work at all! Tried numerous times to record calls without luck, even had an “expert” app guy try to figure this out. He concluded that if read in the fine print somewhere it states can’t be used in the “USA”? I want my money BACK!!!
