Skype is by far the most popular IP telephony tool in the world with millions of everyday users and conversations. Skype is used to discuss all kinds of things - from family matters to contracts and business agreements - which makes it a truly universal means of communication. However, a great number of situations require that not only text messages be logged, but audio conversations as well - and this is something Skype doesn't support by default. Fortunately, there are third-party solutions that add this extremely useful functionality to Skype - such as Pistonsoft Skype Recorder.Skype Voice Recorder is a useful addition to Skype that enables you to record your conversations in high quality and save them to your hard drive, your Gmail account or both locations at the same time. The software silently resides in the system tray and can save your conversations in the compressed MP3 format in your Google Mail account. All conversations will be saved under the "Skype History" label, so you can always quickly identify these messages amongst others. Skype Voice Recorder does not have any special requirements besides .NET Framework 2.0 and the IMAP protocol being enabled in Gmail settings. The possibility to use your mail account for storing Skype voice logs ensures their complete security (everything is sent using the SSL protocol) and allows you to save disk space on your computer. The current version of Skype Voice Recorder requires users to enter their login details for saving their Skype history as attachments to email messages, and this ensures that the program has access to users' accounts only for a short period when attachments are uploaded. However, you can always create a new account and set up a forwarder for extra protection. Skype Recorder is an extremely useful tool for anyone looking for a way to recording their Skype conversations in great quality and saving the result as compact MP files in their Gmail account accessible from anywhere in the world.
