    Google Voice

    by Google, Inc.

    Google Voice needs no introduction. Its features and uses are well known, but one feature that many may not know exists in Google Voice is the ability to record calls. This can be achieved by pressing the number four while in a received call. Of course there is a minor restriction. You can only start recording during incoming calls. You will not have the option of recording your phone call during an outgoing call. With the price of free, no hidden fees, and a ton of other features for phone calls, Google Voice is a winner.

    TapeACall Pro - Record Phone Calls. Call Recorder For Interviews on iPhone

    by Epic Enterprises

    TapeACall is one of the prettier apps when it comes to interface. The functionality of this app is very pleasing as well. The app will not only record incoming calls, but also allows for recording of outgoing calls. You have no limits on how many recordings you can have or how long they can be. You can access your recordings in many different ways. Download them to your computer or email them to yourself. You can even share them through text. Beep tones are audible every once in a while to inform callers they are being recorded. This is a pricey app, but you don't need to purchase credits for minutes.

    Call Recording by

    by 10Count Consulting Inc.

    Call Recording by is a what I like to call a gem. The UI is simple and clean just like its ability to use. Just input your phone number, your email, and create a pin number. Your recordings will be emailed to you after your phone call. You can even choose to have them transcribed.

    If you're looking for a way to record outgoing calls then you may want to give PhoneTap a try. The app makes both you and the person you are speaking with aware that the phone call is being recorded from the beginning of the call, which I believe could help avoid legal issues. The app comes with 20 minutes of recording time, but you can acquire more through in-app purchases. You can also email your recordings.
