Automatic Call Recorder for Me
Having the ability to re-listen to phone conversations can be a very helpful thing to have: you can hear the voice of a loved one anytime you are feeling a little homesick, or you can save valuable information about any flights or accommodations that you have.
This call recorder app for Android lets you record the conversation you have with anyone on your contact list automatically, or you can choose to record calls on a case by case basis. As you talk, you have the ability to create bookmarks whenever you want, so you can easily find important information whenever you need to.
All of your recordings are stored for easy access and you can search through them by date or phone number. Each recording is protected by a PIN, so only you and those you give the PIN to can access the calls, making it very secure.
