Hey guys, here is my first tutorial video. It shows you an awesome way of recording conversations from your iPhone or other smartphone devices using your Mac through bluetooth.
There are definitely a lot of different apps and gadgets that can do this sort of thing, but the problem with a lot of them is most of them have a pay per use fee. With the method described in this tutorial, you only have to pay for the apps once and you can record as many conversations as you want.
Google Voice is definitely a great option for recording phone conversations. It’s actually built right into the App, but for people that don’t like in the US, this isn’t an option for them.
The other options you have are apps that will actually put you into a conference call with a machine that will record the conversation. When the call is complete it will e-mail you an audio clip of the phone call. While this is a great way to get around the Apple or Android API, these companies are usually charging a small fee. Usually around $2/hour, which isn’t too bad by any standards.
Other options you have available are bluetooth enabled recording devices. These devices will actually pair with your smartphone and it would act basically as a bluetooth headset while also recording the conversation you wish to keep. Some examples of this is the MYNAH Call Recorder, and the one from Spy Gear Gadgets.
That is actually what gave me the idea that if you could have these gadgets that can record through bluetooth, shouldn’t your Mac also be able to as well? Turns out you can and I explain it all in the tutorial video. Hope it was helpful! If you have any questions, please feel free to comment and I’ll try to answer them when I get the chance.
The apps in the tutorial can be found in the Mac App Store, or by following these links…
