A call recorder app can be a very useful tool. There are several apps available for iPhone (iOS) and Android, with more or less features, but all of which deliver the basics of storing audio calls made on mobile.
8 apps with call recorder
There are several applications, for iPhone and Android, that allow you to record calls. But in the case of the Google system, the feature was locked on Android 9 Pie and only released on Android 10. Thus, smartphones that specifically run the penultimate version of the system will only have access to the function if the user is rooted. In all other cases, even Android 8 Oreo and 10 and up will be able to record calls without root.
Always remember to turn on speaker mode before starting a recording or the app will only record your audio and not the one on the other end of the line.
1. Call Recorder (Android)
Also known as Appliqato ( play.google.com ), the app is basic and simple: it records phone calls and apps like WhatsApp, and lets you choose which ones to save. You can also add audio notes and save files to Google Drive (on devices running Android 3.0 Honeycomb) or Dropbox. It is free.
2. TapeACall (iPhone)
TapeACall ( apps.apple.com ) works in a curious way: It assumes that the other user should know that you are starting a recording, so the app opens a conference. Apart from that, it allows for easy storage or sharing of audio files. TapeACall is free for 7 days, after which you need to pay a subscription of $29.99/year to release unlimited recordings.
3. Smart Call Recorder (Android)
The Smart Call Recorder ( play.google.com ) is one of the most complete. Lets you register a call as soon as you start a conversation.

It is free.

5. All Call Recorder (Android)
