    I believe the reason why it does not exist is because of certain call-recording laws. Most states in the US require two-way permission for a call to be recorded. If a user had access to the app, he or she could record all of their calls, even without permission. I had an old LG flip-phone years and years ago and that had call-recording and LG pushed an update which removed the feature.

    The one you listed probably snuck its way into the app store and shouldn't be there. I would get it while you can because it may not last.

    That sucks for people who live in states that don't require said permission. I am one of those people. My state's laws allow me to record any telephone conversation I want, without asking permission or even telling the other person that I'm recording.

    Yes, there are many states that are one party consent only, but how would anyone implement this feature for only those particular states? Someone could drive across boarders to buy an iPhone with those features, Apple would have to have multiple versions of iOS for the same devices. There is no logistical way it could be done. So its easier to remove it entirely.

    The app would look at your GPS position when you press record. Simple.

    Really not that simple. One, a lot of people turn off location services and two, jailbreaking can allowing GPS spoofing.

    One, these people can turn it back on if they need to record a call. Are we really saying that software shouldn't exist for a few people who might want to use it but have an incompatible option selected? Change the option or don't use the app. I mean, come on.

    Two, if you jailbreak, there are already call recording apps available that let you record regardless of where you are anyway.
