skypetotherescueThere are many occasions when we are talking to our loved ones and we wish to record the call to relive the moment at a later time. There are other occasions when we may be talking to a client and we want to store the parley to avoid future confusion.

Yet again there are times when we know we cannot attend a group call/conference but we want to hear to each and every word exactly as they were spoken. The simplest solution is to record it and listen to it later.

Forget about mobile phones, we will talk about the internet era where we use applications like Skype to converse or meet with people. And today we will have a look at few tools which help us record Skype calls.

Although the default utility of each of these tools is to record Skype calls, there are some unique features which makes each of them stand out. Let us check them out.

The tool works smoothly and lets you configure automatic call recordings for a specific contact. This means that in case of incoming or outgoing call to the set contacts, the tool will automatically start, end and save your recordings.
