With all the call recorders for iPhone featuring the same call recorder moniker, you can be easily confused. Well, this is another call recording app but it only records outgoing calls made over its VoIP server. The recording feature is free but you’ll be needed to pay for the VoIP calls you make. Good for an occasional prank, don’t you think?
