Whether it’s an important discussion with your colleagues or a brainstorming session with your business partner, there are times when you might want to keep a record of your conversations so that you can refer to them later. That said, since call recording is illegal in many countries, Apple does not include a call recording app with its iPhones. However, if you need such functionality, there are plenty of apps on the App store which can help you record voice calls on the iPhone. However, choosing one might be difficult as most of them claim to do the same thing. Well, worry not, as we have tested and made a list of the some of the best call recording apps you can use on your iPhone.

Note: Many of the call recording apps share a similar name so be sure to download the apps from the provided links only. Also, since call recording is illegal in many countries, please check your country’s regulations before trying these apps out. All these apps are compatible with the latest iOS version, that is iOS 13 and even older iOS versions and also the latest iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, along with older phones including iPhone X, iPhone 8, and more.

1. Rev Call Recorder

Rev Call Recorder is an excellent call recorder that is completely free to use. Yes, you read it right, there are no charges here. Instead, the app charges you money only when you want to get your calls transcribed. That means the call recording service is free to use which is just great. The best part is that there’s no hidden charges or ads and there’s no limit on the length of the recorded calls.

1. Rev Call Pro

The recordings itself are of high-quality and you get a two-way recording. That means you can record both incoming and outgoing calls. You can even share and export your recordings without paying a dime. The app supports sharing of recording via cloud storage services like Dropbox, email, SMS, and more. The app works really well, and the free price tag takes it at the top of my list.

Download: Rev Call Recorder by Rev (Free – $1/minute for transcription) (Only works with US phone numbers).

2. TapeACall Pro

TapeACall Pro is probably the best call recording app which you can use today. The app makes it pretty simple to record any calls. Once you are on a call, just tap on the recording button and the app will create a three-way conference call where the third-line is being used to record the call. In my testing, the app worked every time and recordings sounded clear for both sides. The app also lets you share the recording via social media or email. You can even choose to upload the recordings to a cloud storage (Google Drive and Dropbox) if you want to save storage on your iPhone.

However, the best part of using TapeACall Pro is that the app charges a flat fee. For $3.99/month or $19.99/year, you can record unlimited calls without a cap on the call duration. It is best for someone who likes to conduct long telephonic interviews. The app has a free version which allows you to use the app for a 7-day trial period, after which you are required to pay the aforementioned charges if you want to keep using this app.

3. Automatic Call Recorder

Automatic Call Recorder is one of the best call recording apps for iPhone that you can use in 2020. The biggest selling point of this app is its incredible user interface. The app is crazy easy-to-use and I love that fact. Since most call recorders use a 3-way call-system to record calls, its paramount that they make it easy for users as possible, and in that regard, Automatic Call Recorder wins the fight hands down. The app supports recording for both outgoing and incoming calls so you are covered.

2. Automatic Call Recorder

Other features of the app include neat organizational structure for saving recorded calls, ability to edit recorded audio, support for various cloud services including Dropbox, One Drive, and Google Drive, and more. One of the unique things about this app is that you can use it to generate transcripts of the calls. More than 50 languages are supported so most users will be able to use this feature. Overall, this is a great iPhone call recording app and you should check it out.

4. Call Recorder – Int Call

Call Recorder – Int Call is another great call recording app for iPhones. Just like TapeACall Pro, the app worked perfectly fine on all the devices that I tested it on. That said, their similarity ends here. The app handles both the recording and pricing very differently from TapeACall Pro. Firstly, for the app to be able to record phone calls, you will need to dial the number using the app’s built-in dial pad.

5. Call Recorder int Call

For recording the incoming calls, one needs to first open the app and then follow the on-screen instructions, which makes it a little harder to record the incoming calls. That said, the feature works perfectly fine. The app lets you save the recordings on your phone or upload it to Google Drive or Dropbox. You can also email the recorded conversation to yourself if you choose to do so. When it comes to pricing, the app charges you 10 cents/minute to record your call and sadly this charge can vary depending on your country. The app does give you 30 cents in credit to get you started.

5. Call Recorder Lite

Call recorder Lite is a free app which lets you record both the incoming and outgoing calls. It uses the same three-way call merge system to record your calls as we have seen with previous apps. To record a call, you need to first open the app and then tap on the record call button. Here, the app will first dial the recording number and once it’s connected you can dial the number you want to call. As soon as you merge both the calls, your call will start getting recorded.

6. Call Recorder Lite

Other features include the ability to upload the calls to Dropbox or Google Drive and share calls via emails, iMessage, or Twitter. The free version lets you record unlimited calls, however, it only lets you listen to the first 60 seconds of recording. The pro version of the app sells for $9.99 which gives you a credit worth 300 minutes. If you want additional minutes, you will need to buy it from the app.

6. Call Recording by NoNotes

Call Recording by NoNotes takes the whole call recording game one step further and includes an option to transcribe the recorded calls. The app lets you record both incoming and outgoing calls. You also get all the usual features like save recorded calls in the cloud, share via Facebook or email, and more. Other added features include option to transcribe, use the app for dictation, and QR code to file for playback.

7. Call Recording by NoNotes

When it comes to pricing, you get free call recording for 20 minutes/month after which you will have to pay for the service. The call recording feature will cost $10/month ($8 if you pay yearly), and the transcription service will cost you anywhere between 75¢/min to $423/10 hour. The app is currently only available in North America and US.

7. Call Recorder & Voice Memo

Call Recorder & Voice Memo for iPhone is another app that works great when recording your incoming and outgoing calls. The app gives you high-quality recordings, with clear voices from both sides of conversations. Just like TapeACall Pro, the app uses a conference call system to record your calls. However, you do need to call a person from inside the app to record the calls.

3. Call Recorder for iPhone

Once you call a person using the app, you will have to wait for a few seconds until the merge calls option is ready to be enabled. Once it’s available, you can just tap on the merge calls button and the call will be recorded. The app gives you a clear visual cue by showing the recording time so that you know that the call is, in fact, being recorded. That said, the service is a little pricier at $7.99/month. However, if you decide to pay for a year, it will only cost you $4.16/month.

8. Call Recorder for iPhone Calls

Call Recorder for iPhone Calls is a great app which makes it really easy to record voice calls on your iPhone. The best part of the app is that you don’t even require a SIM card for it to work. It uses its own online services to connect the call. You can use the app to make local as well as international calls. The app promises to deliver a high-quality recording experience with plethora of options to share the calls via different social media apps, emails, cloud storages, and more.

9. Call Recorder for iPhone Calls

The app charges you 6 coins/minute of every call that you record. Depending on how many coins you are buying the prices can vary from 99 cents for 99 coins to $99 for 10998 coins. It’s one of the best call recording apps you can get for your iPhones. If you are happy with its pricing, do give this one a try.

9. CallRec Lite

Just like Call Recorder Unlimited is eerily similar to TapeACall Pro, CallRec Lite is extremely similar to Call Recorder Lite. It has all the similar features, including 3-way merge call recording, the ability to upload calls to cloud storages including Google Drive and Dropbox, and multiple sharing options such as emails and social media channels. However, what makes the similarity scream is its pricing strategy.

6. CallRec Lite

The app’s free version lets you record unlimited calls but only lets you listen to the first 60-seconds of recorded call. You need to buy the pro version if you want to listen to the whole call. However, instead of charging $9.99 for the pro version, it charges you $8.99. Also, I could not find any time limit for the pro version, so it seems that once you have paid, you can record as many calls, for as long as you want, which makes it the cheapest call recording app on the list. That said, it only supports a handful of countries including and not limited to Argentina, Australia, Canada, US, Chile, Brazil, Israel, Mexico, and Poland.

10. iRec Call Recorder for iPhone

Last on our list iRec Call Recorder, which like most other apps on this list is a freemium app. The app lets you record both outgoing and incoming call with ease. It also allows you to make cheap international calls using its services. Although I didn’t use the feature, the app also claims to offer a transcription service just as the one by NoNotes. The service cost your $9.99/month if you pay on a yearly basis.

Comments


  1. It would be helpful to know which if any of these apps protect personal privacy. I looked at one privacy policy that, among other things, lets the seller access your contacts and use transcriptions of your calls for whatever purposes they see fit. Is there an app that lets you pay a free and keep all your personal information private?

  2. very little comparison or information about audio quality. No distinction on any being better or worse. It sounds like besides the cost they are all the same. Only difference is transcription.

  3. Hi there,

    I agree with Osborne
    I had a few Htc’s and because Android is not allowing some of my works apps I went over to IOS but no automatic call recorder.
    I believe someone can make the same app for IOS and charge a yearly fee and I WILL support them

    Tx

  4. Agreed!
    Cube ACR for Androids was my fave. I have an iPhone now and can’t find anything free that doesn’t call a 3rd party. Pissed!

  5. I don’t know how to upvote this comment by Toddp, so I’ll just reply. Upvoted. Also, Number two on the list, and written by the author says: “However, the best part of using TapeACall Pro is that the app charges a flat fee. For $3.99/month or $19.99/year…”

    Just let that sink in…the best part of this app is that you have to pay a fee…This is a ridiculous standard and I fully expect the author, Rachit Agarwal, to remove this comment. Shame sir, these are not acceptable apps. Your article should have had a title like “shame on the recording app industry, there are no good apps.” Instead I wonder how much money you got to write this.

    I am so infuriated that I actually provided my real name and email to this post even though I never post here. That’s right, contact me, I’ll let you know what I think of this.

  6. Sadly none of these are the best call recording software and for one main reason, none record directly to your phone and require you to dial an extra number and in most cases charge you for it. The best recorders are ones you never have to sign up for, you never have dial extra number and it keeps all of your recordings on your own device.
    There are actual great call recording apps but the problem is finding them.

  7. I live in India the apps you mentioned aren’t available in India please change them and suggest me a best free call recorder app for my iPhone thanks.

  8. I have a personal HTC phone. The best recording is called ‘Call Recorder Pro’ from ‘Clever Mobile’ and have it installed in all our Android Phones.
    Unfortunately, I am supplied an IPhone for business purposes. Being on the road continually, I can’t always take notes to recall details. So, my outgoing short calls through IPhone, and all incoming through my Androids. The IPhone just becomes a Hot Spot and is not used for anything more.

    Even the ‘Call Recorder Lite’ version is an awesome app. Highly recommend.

  9. How can this still not be available on an Iphone in 2018. Entirely shameful of Apple to not allow this. So many businesses could use this. Apple, it’s not illegal to record phone calls you’re involved in and critical in some situations. I can’t imagine why Apple would have a problem with this. Well, I won’t be buying an Iphone any time soon and neither will my co-workers.

  10. “However, the best part of using TapeACall Pro is that the app charges a flat fee. For $3.99/month or $19.99/year, you can record unlimited calls without a cap on the call duration.”

    Those are two completely contradictory statements. A monthly/annual charge is NOT a flat fee. I assume this is a holdover from an edit. Please fix.

    • What part are you NOT getting? It’s a flat fee, meaning they do not charge per minute or some other type of usage. It’s pretty standard to have a monthly fee and then a price break for the yearly fee. Both are flat fees. Has anybody ever told you to assume nothing? If not, start now. I assume you will be not be fixing your potato comment.

  11. Glad I read these comments. I will do a lot more research. The descriptions make it seem so simple. Thanks

  12. You ommitted to mention the unclear and additional hidden costs of TapeACall Pro. Their costing approach is just plain deceitful.

  13. nfortunately, iOS does not support call recording.
    There is no iPhone version of ACR.

    In fact, there are no real two-way call recording apps on App store.
    Most of the call recording apps on App store will either;

    – Ask you to start recording before calling and put the call on speakerphone.
    – Require you to dial an external number.

    If you need call real 2 way call recording you must use an Android phone

  14. Hi everyone, I was here a couple of weeks back while searching for how to gain access to someone’s phone and get some evidence I needed at that point. The search took a long time and I was about to give up on it when I saw a referral which led me to IncFidelibus. I was reluctant to contact him at first but after some consideration, I decided to and gladly he did all I needed him to do for me &it was all done to my total satisfaction. If you ever need the service of a hacker to know if your husband, wife or partner is cheating on you; hack any mobile phone, email or social media accounts and more. Contact – INCFIDELIBUS at GMAIL dot COM
    Tested, trusted &highly recommended.

  15. Android download free app make calls all recording automatically done playback when u want iPhone call record bull shit end off

  16. work around is, dial to your android number start the call record on the android phone then from the iphone start the second call and conference it.

  17. NOT a good app!

    Stay away from iRec Call Recorder – This is NOT free!

    I downloaded this app, tried, and uninstalled within one hour.
    I didn’t like the functionalities, didn’t like the UI, and it didn’t do what I needed.

    For my surprise, a couple days later I was notified that I was charged $16.02 per that app monthly subscription. I felt robbed since it said it was a free app on iTunes.

    I do NOT recommend this app.

  18. Call recording is the number 1 reason I won’t ever buy an Iphone. I can live with all the other stupidity of Apple’s walled garden but I can’t tolerate not being able to record calls.

    All these idiotic apps above save your recording on their servers. It’s a 3-way call. You, the person you’re talking to and the the app’s server/service. Plus, there’s nothing cheap about subscription prices. Subscriptions for apps is nothing more than a racket. If recording calls is important/legal for you as it is for me, buy an Android phone.

  19. On my Sony-Ericsson K610i I just assign one of the Navi-Key to start the Voice Recorder and it records which ever incoming or Outgoing. The length is only limited to the Space I have on the Memory SD card !!!
    You can start recording at any moment of the conversation.
    It automatically stops on hangup.
    You just need to rename the conversation. The Time stamp stays.
    No extra charges
    Only CON: there is a BEEP sound every 10 secs.

    • You should consider an android, even the cheapest USD50 phones can record automatically all calls – ACR being a popular free app. No beep every 10 seconds. All calls saved with name (from address book)/number and time, no need to rename anything.

  20. How are these apps “easy” they are very stupid and sound like CrApple crap. You have to manually hit “record”.

    Get and Android phone and get Call Recorder IT’S FREE!!! And it will AUTOMATICALLY RECORD INCOMING AND OUTGOING CALLS. YOU JUST HAVE TO SET IT UP, once, THE WAY YOU LIKE. THEN YOU ARE DONE.

    APPLE CRAP IS JUST THAT…CRAP!!!
