I did some digging into voice recording on BlackBerry 10 after Terrence pointed out a few Voice and Phone Call recording apps in BlackBerry World. I did find some interesting things that point to voice recording being a distinct possibility on BlackBerry 10 but currently there are quite a few caveats. First of all I tried using the voice notes feature in BlackBerry 10’s Remember app during a phone call and was greeted with an error that said it cannot work while other apps are playing sound. With that out the door I dug into third party apps.
I then decided to try Phone Call Recorder ($1.99) by the very reputable ToySoft development house. This app allowed me to press the record during the phone call but no matter what I did it just recorded white noise. I thought it might be like Android apps that record using the microphone so I put the call on speakerphone but still I got no audio. Real shame since this was a native app. I will be contacting ToySoft about it to see if they can fix it.
I then treaded into the Android ports on BlackBerry World that claim to do voice or phone call recording. First I tried Call Recorder by ManMdeWebsApps ($1.99) but that also did not work at all. After that loss of $1.99 I decided to try the free uRecord app. uRecord seems to work through the microphone and only caught faint audio when I was not on speakerphone. On the other hand when I put it on speakerphone it worked decently though you could also hear everything else going on around you.
Last but not least I tried Recorder by Luckyrin which was also free but an Android port. I was surprised to find it worked! Recorder allowed me to start a recording during a call and it would save it to the device. It managed to catch audio even when I did not have the phone on speakerphone though it did also record the audio from my surroundings. The application is a bit glitchy and the buttons are not as responsive as I would like but it does work!
