I was (and I guess you too were) in search for call recorder since long time, but due to many legal restrictions – there wasn’t any app to let me do this. Now, it is possible to record Skype only calls and/or also possible to record mobile phone calls routed through Skype (if you have credits on balance), through Call Recorder for Skype.
This is a jailbreak tweak compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad running iOS 4.x and 5.x
Skype Call Recorder for iPhone
Call Recorder for Skype is developed by dmarinov & hosted on modmyi repo. A lightweight 116 KB app with amazing recording feature, is available at a premium price tag of $6.99.
All this does is, record Skype only calls or mobile phone calls routed through Skype in as an audio file. To record routed calls, you must have credits left in Skype account balance.
I am sure, users needing this kind of feature would jump-in to buy this tweak.
Where are the options?
This call recorder tweak is accessible via its app icon on springboard and stores recorded call as audio file under /Applications/SkypeRecorder.app/Audio
You can use iFile on device; iPhoneBrowser, WinSCP software on PC or Fugu, Cyberduck clients to explore file system to collect recorded audio files.
The Audio Recordings tab shows a list of recorded audio files with .m4a file format along with Date, Time and Duration of the call.
It is the first release of this tweak, so we may expect more options being added in to it later such as: Attach recordings to mail – this would be really helpful for people doing off-shore jobs and have all these conversations recorded and shared with ease.
How to get it?
Open Cydia on your jailbroken device and search for ‘Call Recorder for Skype‘. You shall see it listed with modmyi repo. You can read details about this tweak here.
Call recordings may be illegal in your country. Please understand any such laws before using this app. The best practice is to communicate about any such recording before you start any conversation with person at the other end.
PS: This is not similar to recording on Skype or a Skype MP3 Recorder software, which I am sure you have understood from the information above. 🙂
Hope you like it 🙂
