Beware: Not Reliable 1/5
Initially I liked the app. I’ve had a pro subscription for several years. But the whole reason for recording calls is because the content is important therefore reliability is critical.
Unfortunately, this app is not reliable, and the support behind it nonexistent.
Anyone using this app should be aware that there’s a real possibility whatever you’re recording won’t actually appear after the conclusion of the call, and be prepared to deal with the consequences, and realize you have no recourse or backup from the developer to resolve the problem.
It does not work in every country 1/5
I downloaded the app but I cannot use it because the country I’m in us not on their list .Very disappointed this requirement was not disclosed very bad and now I have to cancel
I bought this app for 19.99 a couple years ago and it said nothing about a membership or a time frame. I just clicked on my app to listen to one of my recordings and all that came up was to pay 3.99 a month or now they are offering it at 19.99 per year. I feel liked I was tricked and now I do not have my very important recording.
Don’t do it 1/5
By Creative cook 626
Never works and they make repurchase over and over again. The app is horrible
Good but one thing to make it great! 4/5
By For all my fans out there lol
One thing : We all live in a speedy world. Transferring takes 3-5 sec. I would like to see automatic recording the moment there's a call vs manually recording.
This improvement will set you above your competitors. Good luck. 👍
Big change, no communication 3/5
Last year, I had paid for and had found TapeaCall Pro to be a very handy app. Today, to my horror, I discovered my recordings were suddenly being held hostage until I paid for a subscription. No notice or anything. $20 I had no idea I’d need to shell out tonight. This is no way to do business—and it’s not like paying for the subscription prevented the same ad I always see at startup from displaying....
Great app, bad business model.
Good program- easy to use 5/5
New upgrades 5/5
By ReadyAction dude
Great update! Even before the update there wasn't much if anything complain about for me. This app has allowed me to interview and transcribe interviews for stories I've dreamed about doing for years.
Thank you so much to everyone who made this app possible.
If you're a writer, this app is a necessity. If the price is bothering you let me try and reassure by saying this is one of the most important apps to have as a writer.
If one of your interviewees can't meet in person for some reason you always have a back up plan!
Getting closer to five stars... 4/5
The recording function on this program is superb. My only problem overall involves transcription. If the developers included some sort of transcription editing function, I have not yet found it.
My Mother’s phone calls 5/5
Thank god I download this app. I have my last conversations with my amazing mother archived. I listen to them when I want to her voice.
Favorite app 5/5
Incredibly helpful and easy-to-use tool in my line of work. Transcription capacity also very helpful and reasonably priced.
Life Saver 5/5
If you have important meetings that you need to go back to listen and take notes, this is the answer. Career saver and advancer...awesome audio quality, can accelerate playback and share link to others. Worth every penny
Helpful app 4/5
I’m a journalist who works in an office with others and I often need to do phone interviews without bothering my colleagues. This is the best app I could find for recording on the phone. I’m not thrilled that you have to call into another line to link up, because that takes a little time, and sometimes the connection drops in the middle of a conversation— inevitably at the most interesting part—but I still haven’t found anything better. Also, I’d like more instructions on how to save files by name because I still don’t understand how to do it. I hope the developers will continue to improve this.
Don’t pay for transcription 3/5
It doesn’t work at all half the time, just endlessly cycling. When it does work it’s still faster (and more accurate) just to transcribe it yourself. The call recoding service works perfectly.
Thieves!!!! and pedophiles. Report them!!!!!!! 1/5
Worst customer service ever 3/5
Mostly it works great which is good because if you do have a glitch don’t expect their completely useless “customer service” to help.
I can’t get an answer to a simple question because their bots, or preterm stoners in a basement somewhere or whatever it is masquerading as customer service can’t read questions and just speed out the same unrelated garbage over and over. And no phone number that I could find. So if you actually use this for work don’t count on a fast fix when you need one.
Already paid, being asked to pay again? 1/5
By Peach Pellen
I hadn’t used the app in awhile and wanted to again, and I had previously purchased the full version. I’m now being prompted to pay again, and can’t get into the app to even see my existing recordings or make new ones, and the “restore” button isn’t doing anything. Please fix this :-/
Simple to use, superb quality 5/5
Very first and very best app I purchased for my iPhone! Records incoming and outgoing calls with a simple push of the big red button. The only flaw is that you have to remember to merge the calls manually; I wish I could sense when both parties were connected and merge automatically. Sound quality is superb. Easily name the file. Share recordings with others. Are use this for two reasons: so I don't miss details about clients' projects, and also as a back up for dealing with customer service idiots. It is so easy to misspell an email address one of the best uses is to be able to listen to it again. Fantastic app – well worth the $10 I spent on it, and even worth 10 times that much.
Update: Type a call keeps improving their service by configuring the interface for an even better user experience, and by adding new features such as transcription (which I can’t wait to try!).
And it’s still only $10 several years after I first signed up.
I love it. Very cheap and recommended.
Previous version was user-friendly! 1/5
The previous version was waaaaaay better than the “upgrade”. Now I have to look at the “transcribe” button. I will not pay to transcribe so take that banner down. Also what’s deal with toggling back and forth to listen to recordings?? This is where they’ve downgraded. The previous version had you control the recording while still viewing your other recordings. Meaning if I want to jump from one recording to the other it was all right there on the SAME screen!! Total waste of time.
Not thrilled 1/5
I can’t put the same person on hold everytime they call!!
Just what I needed 5/5
By Ernest CIII
Really good app especially if your getting harassed
Recording unavailable but no # Change? 2/5
By Not able to Record!
I have been using this app happily for close to 2 years. Since a coupe of months ago, I have not been able to record a call! I get the annoying “Recording unavailable” message when I try to set up a recording. Website says it’s because their system “does not recognize my number” however, my number is the same as always. How can I see the number they are getting to try to fix it? Why has this changed? No big options in website to get support.
When the app worked, it worked perfectly. It’s a shame I am now wasting my subscription! Someone please help!
Love it 5/5
By Esco Lat
I use it for business and personal use. Stops people right in their tracks when you play it back! Hell yes
U lose all your recordings if u don’t keep paying! 1/5
By The Truth138
I purchased this app to record conversations between me and my eight year old son. He usually calls me with funny stories when he gets home from school in the afternoon and I’m still at work. I figured it would be cute for us to listen to the conversations one day when he’s a grown man.
So I paid for this app and unbeknownst to me it was like a “rental” for a year. Once that time is up the app stops working and THEY KEEP all your RECORDINGS. See...the recordings aren’t SAVED TO YOUR PHONE...they are SAVED TO THE APP! So basically they hold your recordings HOSTAGE so u can continue to RENT the app for eternity lol. Smh. AVOID THIS MONEY TRAP AT ALL COSTS! I almost NEVER write reviews but I figure if I can save someone else from this hustle then I’ve got my money back in a way.
Used to be one time payment now subscription 1/5
By Peter V. A
I purchased this app a while back with a one time fee - It worked great. Now, it won’t let me use unless I sign up for a monthly subscription. I would have never purchased if I knew this would happen.
FULL DISCLOSURE YOU JERKS 1/5
By Maggot Stew
If I had known, before hand, that your app “uses Facebook technology...” I would NEVER have paid $10.99 just so Mark Zuckerberg could sell my recorded conversations to the highest bidder.
You may be that billionaire’s digital pimp ho but I ain’t!!! What a waste of money. I deleted the app when I got to the first screen. REFUND MY PURCHASE !!!!
Can’t hear 2/5
It’s hard to hear what is being said
no app support 1/5
Despite trying multiple times for two weeks - I cannot receive a code to activate. Their support site has some FAQ, but no way to contact. I want a refund - but oh wait, there’s no way to ask for one.
Dropped the call!!! 1/5
Couldn’t be worse! Dropped a crucial call two minutes in!
Do not buy; a one star app with the annoying beep 1/5
By Chopslap ooga
The app is useless as it beeps every 15 seconds to notify both parties on the call that the call is being recorded. I line in NY, a one party consent state. Very lame app.
JUST TOOK MY MONEY ...NO ACCESS!!!! 1/5
By need customer service to FIX!
I just paid for this and the money came out but no code is being sent to my phone to start it. I can’t use it and no one to reach to help!! So I pretty much just got my money but I get scammed!!! Don’t use!!!!
Money wasted 1/5
By Dr. 1-UP
What was once a worthy app has turned into a subscription based nightmare. I purchased TapACall Pro with the intent of using it as frequently as needed so the price tag was no issue. Now that it has been updated, I have been cheated. I’m to subscribe to your service for you to record my phone calls for me? No, thanks.
Very concerned! Beware! 1/5
My concern now is this, I read a review where this guy said after his year was over ($10 one year) he was being charged like $4 a month. He had to figure out where ,how,why and get these charges to stop. I just read the terms of service and the app description and I couldn’t find anything that said we can and will be charged after subscription expires. That’s pretty scary. There’s not any phone number to contact them so that’s another thing. They responded to a lot of reviews they felt were wrong but they did not respond to this guys review and it makes me feel that it’s true! That’s why I put one star.
Sprint or Verizon Problem Merging Call! 2/5
By Chosen Innovations
Must Merge A Call!
Great concept but we had a challenge merging the call to begin recording. Ended up frustrated and really want a REFUND because we are not going to use the app with it giving us so many difficulties using.
By VBerg 51
I was looking forward to utilizing this app. Unfortunately its yet to work properly over 50% of the time. Currently I see a 25 minute recording in the app but there is no sound. Not the first time.
Plus the instructions written in the App Store and on the app itself are not clear. When you receive a call you must tell that person to wait, literally put them on hold, dial a call in number and ultimately take the person off hold for the recording to begin. I wish I would have done more research.
So handy and so 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 5/5
Slow and awkward to use - waste of money 1/5
I was looking for a way to record a call quickly and easily. This is not it. You need to do too many complex things. I just want to hit “record”. This app is too expensive for it to work so poorly and ineffectively. Waste of money. Buy a cheap digital recorder instead.
What the hell is wrong with this company that owns this apps? Why defrauding people when you know the apps doesn’t function in our region, please I need a refund of my hard earned money since this apps can’t work and besides why going the process of dialing countries codes automatically on it’s own? This is really crazy and annoying...REAL FRAUD
La aplicación no me deja desactivar los pitidos bip 1/5
Cuando compre la aplicación TapeACall lite por 1 mes me funciono de 10 por eso cuando se me termino el mes la compre por un año y la verdad ahora no me sirve por que no me deja grabar las llamadas sin que se escuche el tono bip..
To much to go through 1/5
Its a business line, not worth the headaches to go back and forth trying to make a 3rd call when I’ve already got the other person talking. Please issue refund.
Makes You Pay 2xs When They Advertise $12.99/yr 1/5
Had to pay $12.99 + another $19.99/yr and this second additional fee was not previously stated on their App Store page...
They also advertise that they care about their customers and that their support team is comprised of real human beings yet they have no email, online chat, or phone number listed on their app page just a FAQs section which doesn’t address my issue.
So far my experience is bait and switch on their pricing and I even installed this app before and the app did not pick up that I still am on a year subscription so I’m having to pay three times over what I should be paying at this point.
88 Days of Unlimited Left 2/5
By Eddie M J
But it's no longer saving call audio. Despite have LOTS of free space on my iPhone.
The transcripts functionality on calls over 30 minutes does not work. To be more specific. It just says “transcribing for hours and never completes.This is definitely disappointing. I hope a patch is released quickly. Bugs occur in development but this one was HUGE!!
Performs As Advertised 5/5
A few UI complaints but these are very minor. Overall, I have used it heavily for four years without problems.
Cannot disable beep tones 1/5
The beep tones are extremely distracting to the other party on calls. The developer removed the ability to toggle them off stating Apple regulations, yet two other apps I downloaded include this capability.
RIP OFF 1/5
Do not buy this app. These people are rip off’s, I can’t listen to my own voice when I am talking or the person who I am talking to when I merge calls. This app don’t work period.
Recording still processing for two days, tech support team MIA 1/5
As a longtime user of this app, it saddens me to have to write a negative review, but I recently conducted an important interview and the recording never processed. I contacted the support team, who told me to wait 24 hours for it to process because there was an error on their end. The recording never processed and the support team hasn’t responded to my follow up. Super disappointed, thought it was the perfect app for my needs.
Restore purchase 1/5
This not useful application in my country
