    I have been browsing a few of the top forums on Palm Treos 680 looking for topics i'd posted but sadly they are mostly outdated. Callrec is in v4 and Mvoice is in v5.52 and RecorderX is darn cheap n tempting.

    Can anyone give suggestion which one is the most promising?

    I've tried them but am not too sure what features r best suited for recording phone calls and memo rec.

    I tend to like what Mvoice has to offer ie a free card reader ( since my CardExport2 doesnt work ). Also the ability to record via wired or wireless is a great advantage.

    But are all these added features simply candy eye!

    Your thoughts and suggestions will greatly help me zero in on whats best.

    Thanks

    Results of my tests of these three apps:

    - CallRec: is the original recorder, robust, good performance and recording quality. Also has a conduit to copy recorder files to a PC.

    - RecorderX: Great new software, good performance, recording quality not as good as CallRec (but quiet acceptable under most circumstances). Has conduit. The one thing it has is the auto naming facility that uses the contacts name instead of the number (CallRec only uses the number and that makes identifying the files quiet difficult). RecorderX also has a "folder" (category) system to file recordings (automatically) that CallRec does not have.

    - mVoice: Caused resets during tests, so not fully tested.

    The one thing I missed checking before deleting was the file sizes of these software, and this may be an important consideration.

    .
    Game over!

    Mvoice can record both sides of conversation when using BT headset?

    What GreenHex says is true,

    CallRec is more robust and gives you the best quality audio

    RecoderX has more features, but I always encountered noisy, parts missing recording

    MVoice has eyecandy but it simply sucks

    I have the Treo 680 and have used Callrec on about 2 business calls. it worked fantastically recording both the caller and my voices - it was quite a treat to hear the conversation again. So far no problem with CallRec and i'm very happy with it. I even used it to record my little girl's singing for archival purposes - "this is what you sound like when you were 3 years old...." - cutest little thing in the world.

    I originally purchased mVoice but have uninstalled it in favour of CallRec. I don't plan on going back. One thing I've noticed is that both of these programs have languished somewhat recently -- no significant updates for a while.

    CallRec will be a unbeatable if only they would use the contacts name instead of the number. Everything else about it is perfect. - mvk

    Mvoice can record both sides of conversation when using BT headset? Man, if Callrec could do that!

    I've never been able to get Callrec to auto record incoming calls, either (on a 650). Maybe some other software I use is interfering, or maybe I just need to buy rather than just try.

    Also, like Greenhex mentions, would love more options with file naming (including customizing date & time), as well as the auto storing options into certain dir's like recorderx apparently has.

    mvoice is pretty cool. i am using it on my treo 650 and after some initial bumbs, it handles the 8 gb card well. both sides of the call are recorded in superfine quality when using bluetooth. the wav file format it uses is pretty handy.
    mind you, officially mvoice doesn't support sdhc. in the beginning i had problems using the casrd reader functionality, but the issue solved itself automatically, somehow.

    Someone has to chime in for RecorderX so i will . Hasn't given me any random resets like the other 2 did to me ;_;.

    I like audacity better than CallRec, mVoice or RecorderX.

    Audacity allows you to go back over parts of your recordings and overwrite, just like you can do on a tape recorder. Neither CallRec, mVoice or RecoderX can do that. If you just want to make short voice memos any of these apps is ok, but for people who use the Treo for dictation, audacity is definitely the best way to go.

    I tried both CallRec and RecorderX because I needed to record presentations, I like the RecorderX interface better, but had the same problem as others here, skipping audio. It recorded fine on internal memory, but was awful when recording to the card.
    I love CallRec, it's simple and easy, it was a little difficult to take the files on my PC and burn them to CD, I had to use Audacity and convert them to MP3's first. I couldn't burn the files using Nero Express or WMP10 although I could listen to them using WMP10, maybe has something to do with the compression?

    I'm considering getting the mvoice or callrec, but I have a question. How many minutes of conversation can be recorded using a 1 or 2 gig sd card? or How much space does say, a 10 min conversation take?

    Thanks in advance!

    At least for CallRec, it depends on what recording quality you choose. The poorest quality, 8 kbps, records at about .47 Mb/min; the best, 22.05 kbps, records at about 1.26 Mb/min.

    I've got 431 Mb available on my SD card, so at 16 kbps, I could record 471 minutes.
