Record calls using your Mac
Recording all kinds of phone calls on your Mac is easier than you think!
Not so long ago, recording a phone call meant awkwardly positioning a dictation machine near a handset and hoping for the best. More recently, voice-over-IP applications like Skype have brought voice and video communication to the desktop. In the latest versions of Mac OS X and iOS, not only can you perform FaceTime Audio as well as video calls between your devices, but now regular cellular calls can be received on Wi-Fi-only devices such as Macs and Wi-Fi iPads, too.
This is incredibly useful – so long as your iPhone is connected to your wireless network, you can make and receive calls on any device. It also means you can record calls. Perhaps you’re conducting a phone interview and need to record it for transcription, or you’re having a work conference call, or you need to record a call to keep a record of its contents. By using QuickTime’s screen recording feature in OS X, you can record FaceTime and cellular calls for free. By using an inexpensive third-party app, such as Call Recorder for FaceTime (or Skype), you can get much more flexibility. Hollin Jones
