    "First, I wanna say that the pro version is worth every penny i spent. I can now record unlimited calls, and the best part is it has no hidden per minute charges unlike other apps. The files are in mp3 format too so hassle free."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the first recorded patent that addressed communication recording was brought forward way back in 1903? Although there were telegraphs that were capable of transmitting Morse code, and recorders for that medium most likely existed, those devices had no capability to record the human voice. Granted, plenty of recording devices were developed earlier, but these contraptions didn't involve actual phone lines to record. The invention that Carl and Theodore Freese brought forward in 1903 involved the recording of sound waves onto a wax disk. Unfortunately, due to the limitations in technology during that era, including the inconvenience its usage brings, the device never really grew popular.

Despite the not-so-successful fruition of that idea, there is no doubt that it has already built the foundations of sound recorders. Years later, phone line recorders and even voice changers have been developed, further showing that this specific line of devices can and will continue to improve. Presently, with the advancements made with technology over the years, plenty of tape recorders have already been made, along with call recorder apps for iPhones and Android phones. With these devices being made available in the market, along with its ever-increasing popularity, it's safe to assume that recorders won't be rendered obsolete anytime soon.
