Sorry, Mr. President, This App Doesn't Record Phone Conversations

Sorry, Mr. President, This App Doesn't Record Phone Conversations

The Voice Memos app on the iPhone doesn't allow you to record phone conversions in progress on your iPhone. If you're using a speakerphone on a traditional telephone, you can record the conversation by holding your iPhone or iPad (while it's recording) up to your traditional phone's speaker, but the Voice Memos app will not allow you to record conversations being held on the iPhone itself.

Search for voice recording at the Apple App Store, and you'll find a handful of third-party apps, such as Recorder, that offer the same basic functionality as the Voice Memos app, but allow you to record and play phone conversations on your iPhone. Prices range between $ .99 and $3.99.

Depending on the app, you get additional useful features such as the following:

  • Individual audio recordings can be password-protected.
  • Hide the recording screen on your iPhone or iPad so you can record secretly with the device in plain sight.
  • Create custom filenames for your recordings from the mobile device, and then prioritize or sort the recordings by filename, category, date, or priority.
