Pistonsoft Skype Recorder Review And Giveaway [5 Licenses]

Skype is spreading like fire in the line of instant messengers. Skype is mainly used in the corporate world for its VOIP qualities. You can call any Skype to Skype worldwide and you can also call any landline or mobile. In the corporate world, keeping a history of everything is really very important. Skype does save the text chats locally on the computer but does not provide any way of voice recording so that we can also keep track of our voice conferences, chats etc.


Pistonsoft Skype Recorder is very good add-on of Skype that can serve the purpose of saving voice chats. Another benefit of Pistonsoft Skype Recorder is that in addition to giving an option to save the voice conversations locally, it also gives an option to save the conversations to Gmail directly. This is especially useful when you want an online backup to be available all the time.

This compact Skype call recorder offers the following useful features:

  • Possibility to record Skype calls;
  • Possibility to save Skype history locally and to your Gmail account as MP3 files;
  • Secure transmission of your Skype history items to Google Mail via secure SSL connection;
  • Automating labeling of Skype chat history entries in your inbox.

My wish list for the future versions of this software:

  • It should support SMTP email service so that the recorded conversations can be saved to any email address other than Gmail.
  • It should also support remote backup services for the voice recordings to be saved.
  • It should support saving text chats in the same way as voice recordings.

Pistonsoft Skype Recorder can be downloaded from here.

    Ever since I came across Technize, my computer knowledge has grown manifolds. As a hobbyist computer geek I have recommended reading technize to many of my friends and computer owners who asked for my help. This is so true to the extent that when I install ‘fastdial’ extension on their computers in firefox, I always leave a link for technize.com.
    The technize community is also very active as I see posts from so many users on this forum which reflects the amount of input to this forum.
    previously I used to write things down in my notebook but Now I dont need to as I just search for solutions needed on technize.
    thats all I had to say !
    I will comment on Pistonsoft Skype Recorder when I get this app.

    Hi Sanix,
    Thanks for this giveaway opportunity. I have been ur subscriber for quite some time now. Coming from Technical field I found ur articles/posts quite interesting.
    You have been posting very good mix of articles about privacy, security products, social network, netbooks/laptops, non-windows, open-source stuffs and others.
    I’m also very impressed by your pick of giveaways which include Lookeen Outlook Add-in, BullGuard, VPN. Unfortunately, not my luck at them:) But yes I won Wondershare recently.
    Your site is sleek, better designed, with no clutter as to what I notice. It would be great if you could review the Blogrolls and Friendly sites, removing the dead and those which are pointed RED by WOT .
    I use Skype almost on daily basis, as it is cheap and has good voice quality. Coming to Pistonsoft Skype Recorder a few points:
    1. easy to integrate with Skype and install
    2. allows saving to Gmail account as well as hard-disk
    3. moderate on system resources.
    4. recoded MP3 quality is good, if not best.
    1. MP3 files are usually larger in size. So there is a limitation on the recorded size/calls which could be saved. Limitation is 25Mb.
    2. Gmail may anytime block the account, due to suspection
    3. Need to provided Gmail credentials (username/password) to the software
    4. In case recording exceeds Gmail attachment size it would be completely lost.
    1. Could provide a function for splitting the MP3 file size based on the user provided input size
    2. An option to save file in a format other than MP3.
    Thanks to you (Sanix) & Pistonsoft.
    Please count me in.
