October 14, 2013 - Written By Tom Dawson

Description: Killer Mobile are back with Total Recall 2. One of the very few call recorders to actually do what it promises, this time around it’s been revamped and has new options and an easy to use interface. Total Recall 2 takes the hard work out of call recording too, with automatic defaults and a number of settings you can easily tweak to your liking. Unlike other apps, this feature two-way recording and doesn’t just record from your microphone, it records both sides of the conversation. Making these recordings something that you can really use. Thanks to Killer Mobile’s experience in the field since 2003, this is a developer you can trust. If you need to record calls, Total Recall 2 is one of the few apps out there that can really help.

How it Works: First of all, you’ll need to download the app from the Play Store. You should note that there is a free trial with the app but, after that you need to pay for it. However, the developers have given you time enough to test the app out.

Opinion: It’s not often that you might need to record calls on your smartphone however, if you’re in a situation where you need to monitor your calls for whatever reason, you want to be using the right tool. That’s exactly what Total Recall 2 is, the right tool for the job. Thanks to the granularity of the settings included in the app, you’re able to control things to just how you like them. Automatic call recording is great for those that don’t want to fiddle with the device when they’re on the phone and the ability to rename each clip is really helpful. The interface is easy to use and everything is broken up nicely, making a fairly complex app nice and simple to use, with all the settings in the background.
