    Be able to record during a phone call. I was in an intresting conversation the other day and went onto voice memos to see if it would record, but it didn't.

    So who else would like to record during a phone conversation?

    It would be nice, but in most cases it is illegal, without permission and special prompts while the call is going. These rules vary greatly from state to state, country to country.

    I dont get why they didnt make voice memos that way...Unless it is really illegal, which then it would be understandable. But i dont think it is...

    laws vary but most have it so only one party knows its recording, which you obviously would know as its you recording

    Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party without informing the other parties that they are doing so. These laws are referred to as “one-party consent” statutes, and as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it.

    Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.

    ...because otherwise they would be aiding users in potentially breaking the law?

    It doesn't take a huge leap of logic.

    and this is probably the reason why they didn't include it.

    The fact is it's illegal in many states and it doesn't really matter what your intentions are, even if they're purely for your use. Apple's not going to make an app that could be used for illegal purposes.

    Thanks for this info. I don't think I'll ever need to worry about this, but it's interesting nonetheless.

    Or they could do it Google Voice/GrandCentral style:

    "This call is now being recorded" audible on both sides
