Tape-A-Call

☀ ☀  Tape-A-Call is an app that allows the user to easily record phone calls without any extra equipment. The app’s layout is simple, but the process of recording the audio isn’t. You click the dot, hear a beep as you connect to the app via phone, but then you must start another call to the third-party and then merge the calls. It also can take up to 30 seconds to set up the recording. On top of that, if for some reason the app is not recording, there’s no way to know. A journalist could use this, but I would be cautious. If one were to record a call (check the legality of this in your state), I would suggest they simply use a separate recorder.  — Garrison Murphy

☀ ☀ ☀  Tape-A-Call: Journalists may want to try it. Once you have completed a phone call recording, you can then share an MP3 via text or email. One plus: there is no time limit on recordings. Journalists should know and follow the rules for taping interview subjects; in many states you need their permission to do so. Here is a video link that explains the app. — Alexis Berdine
