Frequently Asked Questions

How does this app record calls?

Take a look at our screenshots for step by step instructions.

When you're on a call and you want to record it, open TapeACall and press the record button. We will put your call on hold and dial our recording line. As soon as our line answers tap the merge button on your screen to create a 3 way call between your other caller and our recording line.

If you want to record an outgoing call, just press the record button. The app will dial our recording line and will begin recording as soon as our line answers. Once that happens, tap the add call button on your screen, call the person you want to record, then press the merge button when they answer.


Can I download recordings to my computer?

Yes, and we've made it extremely easy to do this. From inside the app you can attach the recording to an email and send it to yourself as an MP3, or you can click the share button and find a short URL that you can type into your computer's browser.


How many recordings can I make?

As many as you want! We don't have a limit on the number of recordings you can make.


How long can a recording be?

As long as you want! We don't have a limit on how long your recording can be. You can record for hours if you want.


Are there any additional fees?

We do NOT charge you any additional fees. Please keep in mind that 3-way calling will use your airtime minutes. Also, carriers outside the US may charge for long distance calls, so be sure to check if TapeACall is long distance for you. If it is, you may be able to get around this by adding TapeACall's access number as one of your "Fav" numbers so you can call it without additional airtime usage or carriers fees. If we don't have an access number that is considered local by your carrier, please contact us and we'll try to get one for you!

Customer Reviews

  • Saving me money

    by namstadter

    I'm a cost consultant and this app keeps the providers honest. I do inform I am recording if thats ok. Easy to use. Could be more simple, however it's worth every cent and by far best phone call recording app itunes offers.

  • Great tool

    by Vincent Waymire

    Does exactly what is advertised. I use it almost everyday

  • Love it!

    by TimmieP

    This is a life saver at work. I often times have to write two stories a day so schedule face to face interviews can be a challenge. But with tape a call. I can record the interview instantly. This is a must have for journalists working on deadline and need that interview but can't physically be in the interviewee's presence.

  • Great App

    by Divorce2014

    Going through a nasty divorce. I've used this app for months and recorded over 3 hours of calls to help my case. Only drawback is u can hear it beep when u press record. U just have to cough or something to cover the beep sound. Also - the fact u can forward the recording is great.

  • Excellent App

    by Tolei

    Best of the best, and very useful

  • Best recording app works great on my iPhone 5s

    by Rowona

    Great little app, use it to record phone interviews.

  • Wow!

    by Cpanderou

    So far, so good! I have not experienced a single issue. Works exactly as described. Will update if/when I encounter any issues in the future.

  • Should Have Password Pritection

    by cyberbiker

    This is an excellent recording app relative to the others available. However, to assure privacy in the event of a lost or stolen phone, offering password protection to open the playback screen would increase its value.

  • Awesome

    by Allen Sircy

    Does everything it says it does. I do a podcast and tape the interview for the show.

  • Good job!

    by DaninPhx

    This app is exactly what I was looking for to record test calls for secret shopper program.

  • Great ap

    by MMG79

    This ap does exactly what it claims to do. Inexpensive tool for journalists who need to record phone interviews. Love it.

  • This is a good app

    by Ms Lady D 1/2014

    I've used this a few time and it works great. The first time it took awhile to come but it did. My conference calls are clear and it didn't matter how long it was. I'm very happy that this app is available to me because taking notes is not my cup of tea!

  • Perfect... 5 star app!

    by Chamberchild98

    This app is worth every penny. A must have on all iPhone's if you ask me. Crisp / clear recordings never makes noise or static when recording a call.

  • Great app

    by Daglesc

    Works great. Does exactly what they say it does.

  • Perfect for my business!

    by focusfuturesinc

    Works great. Love that I can send the recordings to my Dropbox. This is awesome!

  • Lifesaver

    by Brettany

    I'm a PhD student and am interviewing people all over the country. I need a recorder for later transcription and this works like a charm. Totally worth the price.

  • So far so good

    by The Stellar CEO

    I am just loving how easy this is to use. I have been wondering about how to record conversations on my iPhone and now, voila! Working with my clients and giving them the recording of their session is now a breeze. Thank you.

  • Love it.

    by Better be rich

    I heard that there was a beep during the call, but I can assure there is not. I have tried every combo possible and it does not leave anything at all to alert anyone on either end of the conversation. I use it for lectures and interviews and it is flawless as far I can tell. It's good people I promise.

  • Works well, slight learning curve.

    by JHamel81

    This app does what it says for sure. I would recommend watching the instructional video and practicing a few times before any real time application. There is about a 5-10 second delay on incoming calls.

  • It's kind of cheat

    by Firas hafez

    You must say it doesn't work in arabic country...I lost 10 dollars for nothing...I want my money back

  • Wow

    by Getachew Gebregziabher

    Great app

  • So far only minor issue...

    by Junos No-No

    So far no issues with this app other then I cannot delete a recording with zero minutes. I purchased this app to replace another one that stop working called Record Pro by Blue Square Group, LLC.

  • Great app!

    by Joven508

    Super easy to use, love this app. I use it all the time when interviewing customers so I don't have to take notes. Perfect.

  • Great app

    by Sassy paddy

    Learn how to use first

  • POS

    by ltoncar

    This is a very sorry piece of software. Tried several times to record a call and it never hears anything. I have followed the tutorial to the letter. I've pushed merge until my finger is practically merged to the phone and still get nothing. Wasted 10 bucks.

  • This app helps me run my business!

    by Uleria

    My business involves phone consultations and trainings, which my clients want recorded for later review and reference. Before I found this app, I tried a bunch of others that didn't work very well, or forced you to keep buying blocks of time. This is by far the best I have tried. The app is dead simple to use, it's easy to download your recordings, and it's worked without a hitch, with great sound quality. If you are in the market for something like this, this is the only app you'll ever need. It's a ridiculously fantastic bargain, as well.

  • Great idea and great app!

    by jkwilson93

    The only feature I would suggest is making the app able to transfer recordings to a computer or email them.

  • Powerful tool

    by Kolar67

    No more scrambling to take notes on each call. It's all saved here. Faster record interface process is next step.

  • Works well!

    by Dooley0813

    Nice clear quality on playback. It does not allow you to start recording until you have connected on the call.... then there is a short delay. Would give it 5 stars if you could start recording prior to the other party connecting. Great app. Works great just have to remember to merge calls.

  • Me

    by BlueSkyHomes

    Top-notch app! Very easy to set up, record inbound and outbound calls, and then use the audio file pretty much anywhere and anyhow you want. I have yet to find any drawbacks. A little pricey, but well worth it, IMO.

  • Outstanding app

    by EssentialGadgets

    Just started using this app and it works extremely well. I connect to TAC first, record a date/time header etc, then make the call I need to record. Works very well. I have made several calls already. One improvement I would like is to be able to merge the call while it is ringing and not after answer. Please make this change.

  • Genius and Seemless

    by Nazdak

    This app over performs! I got way more than I expected. Easy playback and cataloging and seemless to begin recording calls. They are definitely on to something with this one!

  • TapeACall Pro

    by romeplow

    After finding the download in my iTunes and moving the app to my desktop. Everything worked easily, just as the App Store said it would.

  • Awesome!

    by Zane Welton

    This is the reveal deal!

  • Tape a call

    by Ads like crazy

    Works great

  • Honestly does what it says

    by appfalloutfan

    This app does what it says it does and it works very well I am impressed with it's fictionally and how well it is streamlined

  • It good

    by Dodeemonster

    Not bad app. Ive only had for a day though and it is already asking memto rate it. ?

  • Excellent app

    by BDBill

    Does exactly as advertised. Great and clear recordings.

  • Great!

    by Danielle Dallimore

    Love it!

  • Great,simple app

    by Bart Caylor

    I always like apps that promise and deliver on one thing. Like that I can record the calls and upload to Dropbox for my team to review as well.

  • Beep + editing

    by Wobina

    Need the ability to turn the beep off, as well as make clips and edits of recordings.

  • Good app

    by AngryBirdAddict2222

    It works as expected worth the money

  • Really happy

    by lynbren

    I'm a freelance writer and I use this all the time to tape phone interviews anywhere from 30-60+ minutes long. I particularly love that I can email myself a download link to use later after the recording is done. There are a couple of issues I have. One is that it sporadically disconnects instead of merges the calls. I can't 100% say this is the app's fault though. The other issue is that I can't sleet the recording without downloading it. Note to developers: please allow this in future versions. I like to email myself the download link so I don't also want the file to automatically download to my phone. Apart from that, happy with the way it works and it's certainly been a big help to me.

  • So easy and worth every penny!

    by JoeWolverton2

    Use it all the time and it is an invaluable tool.

  • Works perfect

    by Samuel Munger

    I used this several times with no problems.

  • Great App

    by thaedra

    Really love the App.... Just don't forget to merge the calls!!! :)

  • Works great...as long as I hit "Merge"

    by theBirchKids

    Fantastic, simply-designed app. But out of 3 recordings I've forgotten to hit "Merge Call" (which starts the taping) twice! Adding a pop-up reminder if the app doesn't hear anything for 30 or 60 sec. would help save me from myself.

  • Don't buy

    by Srjeep01

    This recorder is completely useless. Totally cumbersome, you have to start it before your call and you have to ask a caller to hold and then start it during a call. The "tap call" in not only misleading its a total lye!!

  • Don't buy

    by Billy848402038

    Hey screw you apple for not letting me save this reviews because someone picked my nickname. Anyway do not buy this app or use it, it worked at first and has now screwed up two interviews for me. They saved as 1 second long on my phone, and you can't download them anywhere. No web support, either.

  • Works great

    by Mkfoxxx

    Easy to setup and use, simple as that!

  • Great

    by Ddddddretreetfff

    App works so good

  • Great product!

    by SCGhouston

    This is a really good product and very easy to use! Worth the $10.

  • I like it

    by Grampyto1

    I like this ap but I think that it takes way to long to connect to the server. To much time and conversation is lost during this process when recording a call already in progress. An upgrade here is definitely necessary.

  • A tad frustrating

    by Skybroken

    I've deleted recordings I don't need and they miraculously reappear. On my Sprint iPhone it can take 30 seconds or longer to activate. Other than that, the recordings are super clear. And it is easy to share the files.

  • Great but...

    by SCM678

    I've been really happy with this ap until the last update. Now every 5 seconds I get an alert from the ap that a call was recorded .... Not kidding it's running through the call list over and over and over and over with notifications. Driving me NUTS.

  • Not happy, but will have to deal with it for now

    by CHRECKA

    Ok. I was VERY excited when I first used this app. I had been looking for something like this for years. I have emailed the support about many issues I am having: constant notifications telling me that I have a new recording when I haven't recorded anything. My "labeling/naming" of calls being erased & having to rename them over and over (finally gave up). I even went into my settings (iPhone4S) and turned off notifications yet still getting them? - I am happy that it records calls well.. But the other things are very annoying and wondering if it is really worth $10 (my time is more valuable)

  • Worth Every Penny

    by Crwndjstr

    This is hands down the best app I have ever bought. Everything works perfectly. It works exactly as advertised, just make sure you merge calls. Calls are clear as a bell, even me though I'm often called a mumbler. Recorded calls are available almost immediately after you hang up. All calls are time and date stamped and shows the duration of the call. You can also label the calls whatever you like and the time information remains available. Again, best app on the market!

  • Great App

    by DFW123456

    Recording outgoing calls is just absolutely easy and it only took couple tries to get real good recording the incoming calls so I say this is just a great little app probably the downside is that they they get your telephone number and your and they store the recordings on their server but it does provide a way to to turn them into MP3s if you save it to the right software on your on your telephone anyway I love it and I think I just think it's a great app

  • GREAT APP!!!

    by Bravo901

    Super simple and easy to use!!!

  • Amazing

    by rockandride

    Yeah it's 10 bucks - get over it. If you are looking for a way to record calls, then pay the one time fee and you'll find there's no better way out there...yet anyways.

  • Great App!!!

    by JohnBoy713

    I can record important calls for things like school! Now I don't need to write them down!

  • App

    by Th3me

    I love it ....I hope to get good use out of it Thirstonhowellthe3rd

  • Bought this for important call-beware

    by Beth W. Jones

    I hope all that was said by the business was rectified. I wouldn't know because it cut me off after 31 seconds...of a 7 minute call. I did buy TapeACall PRO, and I did follow instructions to the letter. Was calling this place for the 4th time for necessary papers to be sent to me. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

  • Very helpful

    by Jerry Shelton

    I have been writing stories from interviews and this app made my job much easier. It's easy to use. I was able to record an interview within 10 minutes of download.

  • Works well

    by Chris Alamo

    I am happy with this app and have had no problems so far.

  • Works good

    by Mariebinvabch

    Haven't tried to download one but the pro version works great!

  • Recording app

    by Jonesbm88

    Works great!

  • Invaluable!

    by Fug'em

    (After checking Texas Law) App worked flawlessly! In the mist of a domestic litigation. It's because of this app, I have been awarded custody of my son...

  • Awful

    by Sallyire

    A total waste of money. This app is now frozen when I open it with no way to fix it.

  • Paid for itself 1st use!

    by Alexus4me

    I keep getting this bill that I shouldn't be getting. I have talk to supervisor after supervisor with them telling me I should not get a bill. The bill is now in collections and is affecting my credit score. I am not paying this bill. Now I have the supervisors on record saying that I should not be getting a bill. I would love for them to try to take me to court. I will have them on record and then they would have to pay court costs lawyer fees and time off of work. Ha ha!

  • Nice

    by Pj bourdon

    So far it is working great. I'm recording people trying to scam us with timeshare stuff, and for my business talking to customers.

  • Good

    by Justauser198400

    So far good

  • TapeAtalk

    by ReviZoro

    Goog app! Thanks!

  • Mr.e

    by HoeFasho_haha

    Great app! Works perfect for many subjects of interest!

  • Works great!

    by PDXguy83

    I'm giving this app 5 stars because it does exactly what it says it will and it does it beautifully. I'm using it to record calls with my landlord. I was worried he would hear a beep or other tone to indicate the call was being recorded but that doesn't happen.

  • Great App!

    by L.A Writer

    I'm a freelance writer and this app allows me to record phone interviews. It's quick and easy to use. If you decide to create an app to transcribe the interviews into a Word document, I'd buy that too!

  • Sweet App.

    by Dreadlocks1

    Does exactly what it says. Real nice.

  • Beeping Sound

    by Skadoosh it's ME

    Just got this and tried it out. There's a high-pitched beep occurring every 15 seconds that's noticeable on both ends of the line. Both of us are using iPhone 5s and it's incredibly annoying.

  • Good app

    by amw01

    Works as advertised. Very simple to use compared to the others I've seen and merging the calls is not cumbersome or intrusive to the conversation. One added feature I would love to see is transcription. Have seen it offered by some of the competitors and may have to try one of those out.

  • Nice app

    by A1b3c9

    Takes some getting used to but it does what it says. A pleasant surprise is that I was able to send the file or link via Drop Box, email, Evernote, etc. You have to give it a few seconds to be ready to merge the call. Also, you can turn off the periodic beeps.

  • Awesome App

    by TragicTwink

    Pretty good app-

  • Not For Conference Calls

    by Lindsay.C.Martin

    I purchased this app to record conference calls. The app causes reverberation and echo on the call which is very very noticeable. We had a call with 9 participants. Three of them were on speaker. Make sure that no one is on a speaker phone. We had to hang up and start the call over.

  • Mr. D

    by Jayhawksfan1

    This app works great for me! So I'll give it two thumbs up.

  • Awesome

    by jaynbtv

    I am very happy with the app! Very high quality recordings!

  • So far so good

    by S.dewey1

    So far I haven't had any issues with the app and it seems to do what it says it will do.


    by Ty5044


  • Easy to use

    by GmanHB

    I use the app all the time to help recall a conversation or an important point if I can't take notes. Highly recommend.

  • Wonderful for phone interviews

    by SierraAZ

    Excellent app, easy to use, good quality, intuitive, several fool proof features during the call and lots of storage/sharing options after its complete. If phone interviews are part of your daily work, this is $10 very well spent. Reviewed on an iPhone 4S.

  • Painless Way to Record iPhone Calls

    by Rubican man

    I use this app to take recorded statements over the phone. There is a small learning curve and I recommend everyone using this program to practice, practice, practice. You do not want to hit the wrong button during a phone call and hang up on somebody. But once you learn how to use this program, it does a really good job of recording both sides of the conversation. I highly recommend it.


    by canoeten

    Easy to use and works well—unless you have a call come in at minute 25 of a 62-minute phone interview and it stops recording the moment the call waiting beep goes off. Yeah, that happened to me today. Ramon at TapeACall tried to help, but you can't recover something that was never recorded. I took a star off because of that easily communicated, but not communicated anywhere, mission-critical snafu. Turned off call waiting (Settings: Phone: Call Waiting) and did another hour plus interview later the same day with no problems.

  • Yes ( it's worth it)

    by GenXYNurses

    You will not find a better app that does what it purports in terms of function, reliability, and ease of access. U will (regularly) utilize this app; not store it with others.

  • Advisor

    by Twisted steel

    I am very pleased with the performance of this app. I find it very easy to use and easy to send the recordings to a second party. I am grateful and recommend this app to anyone who requires phone conversations to be taped.

  • Great for journalists!

    by Alizdawry

    I'm a journalism student and this app has proven to be very helpful collecting interviews. The sound quality is clear, it's easy to use, and you can easily transport the recorded files to your computer or elsewhere. It's really been a lifesaver this semester!
