I have written about Skype before – it’s a great low-cost (or free) telephone service that uses your high-speed internet connection to make phone calls through your computer. I use Skype almost every time I do a remote access tuneup.
For a while, I have been looking for a way to record my Skype calls. If I am on the phone arguing with a company about returning a product, or if I just need to go back and listen to a call to verify something that was said, it’s handy to have all of your calls available.
The ones I found initially were either expensive, or didn’t work very well. Then I stumbled across one that works great, and it’s free. The creators cleverly named it Skype Call Recorder, and you can get it free here.
You can set it to start up everytime Skype starts, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to turn it on. It will automatically save all your calls in .mp3 format for easy access whenever you need to listen to one.
Note: in some US states, you are supposed to notify the other party if you are recording the call. Be sure to abide by all state and federal guidelines when using this product. You can get a good overview here.
