How to record phone calls on your Mac

If you're in a business — as I am — where you occasionally conduct interviews over the phone, or want to remember brainstorming sessions with a friend, you may wish to record your calls. In the past, this was a bit of a pain with iPhone calls, since iOS apps can't hijack your audio signal. You usually had to record using an external device, either by putting your iPhone on speaker or wiring it up in some way.

No longer.

Thanks to the folks at Ecamm, you can use any Continuity-enabled Mac running OS X Yosemite to record your iPhone calls with Call Recorder for FaceTime ($30, free trial available).

Airmail 2 for Mac review: Email exactly the way you want it
