    Hi,

    URGENT HELP REQ!!

    I'm having Palm Pre 2 and looking for a App that can help me to record the phone conversation (incoming, outgoing, date & time of the phone call, Phone number, etc). Currently i've HP WebOS 2.2.4 version.

    Let me know if i've to upgrade version or so.

    Never found such an app for webOS while I was looking for it. We've lots of audio recording apps. One would think it won't be too hard to change those apps slightly, but maybe there is no support in webOS to directly record phone calls. It would be useful. Any dev willing to comment on what the chances are to built such an app?

    Just an afterthought, not ideal, but a workaround, just pair your phone with e.g. your TP (or bluetooth speaker) and run a voice recording app on your phone to record the phone conversation. Yes, I know it's just a workaround.

    i need a phone calls recording app too,
    before there was a limitation in the API ( i think) now that the openwebos has been released i don't know if there are still limitations,
    please developers, we really need this for webos and i am ready to buy as soon as it is available,
    this is a big time saver, it will save us from the hassle of writing the client's comments down especially while driving...
    i hope some developer would help.

    google trapcall and see if there's a way to use that or maybe that could give a developer a headstart. I saw Apple had blocked the app from their store and that got my curiosity up about the app.

    a local app rather than relying on an online service is much better, not everyone is connected 24/7 and everywhere.
    plus the trapcall service $25 per month ouch!!
    if only we can get a confirmation that a phone call recording app is possible at all.

    open webOS API wouldn't be applicable to the version of webOS on your device....

    Not saying it's not possible, but just not gonna help much. I really don't think this is possible but I am no developer.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    webOS uses PulseAudio/ALSA, doesn't it? Can't you redirect audio using those frameworks?

    I know you can record the incoming voices from pulseaudio on a skype calls. I was unable to record my own voice though during skype calls. I don't think the microphone or the phone app uses pulseaudio the normal way. So it makes it a little more difficult to record the conversation during a phone call.
    Rocking out Franken Pre2 2.2.4 and TP 3.0.5

    Published TP Apps:
    Anagramarama HD
    Published Phone Apps
    Anagramarama
    DDII Free

    i am no dev and don't know anything about programming, but since it is possible to record the incoming voice through pulseaudio and it is possible to record our voice through already available recording apps,
    how about mixing them together on one file left and right channels, from two different sources, the microphone and the pulseaudio thing whatever it is.
    is that possible?
    even if it is not realtime mixing, maybe an automated post process when the call has ended?

    NOTE: this was tested on Pre3, but Pre2 should be the same

    You can record phone conversation without need for mixing 2 sources ... you can record both mic and speaker at same time ... there are no technical issues (except jail, so official app in HP App Catalog is not possible) ... piece of cake - except day has only 24hours

    For those with free time and required skills: don't use pulse audio, but alsa directly, for example try running this command while on call (will record 20secs):
    Code:
    arecord -D hw:0,0 -f S16_LE -d 20 /media/internal/rec.bin
    then play back with:
    Code:
    aplay -f S16_LE /media/internal/rec.bin
    Hope that helps...

    That should be easy to wrap into an app. Just add adjustable time and adding WAV headers/compression.

    Nice

    Wow i just saw this thread again and it is great news, i am excited that there is hope for this app to see light, and i don't care if it is through official catalog or other! this is available now on android and was available on symbian more than 10 years ago, and it is a shame that some people including me can't use webos for their specific needs without this feature.
    on a side note i have read in this thread
    Voice recording on palm pixi [plus]
    that realtime mp3 conversion might be possible with faster phones like pre3 or pre2
    so i hope this would be implemented too,

    thanks artxxork i hope you can find some free time soon
