With all of the applications pre installed on today’s smart phones you would expect to be able to simply press a button and record your telephone conversations. Unfortunately it is not quite that simple. Luckily many developers have produced applications in order to do this so my advice would be to download an app and try recording a call to a friend first before recording that important interview.
Once you have completed a test call sync your smart phone to your computer and actually listen to the recording. It must be very clear for us to transcribe it. If it is not clear you may need to change the settings or try a different application.
Skype is not packaged with recording functionality so the only way to record a Skype call is to search for a third party supplier and install a program to your computer. I would read several reviews before downloading any software or ask a colleague or friend to recommend one.
