SKYPE News - Simkl Introduces a Cool Skype Recording Service with Cloud Storage
By Mini Swamy, TMCnet Contributor
SaaS (News - Alert) developer Simkl appeared on the IM horizon in 2007 allowing people to backup and archive their conversations and make them available for searches at a later date. It has now rolled out another new service that pushes it a couple of notches higher in the IM recording landscape- a recording add-on for Skype (News - Alert) and Windows Live Messenger.
Along with a new website, it has reportedly introduced a new app - IM Chat & Voice Recorder v 3.0- that can record Skype audio calls, and also archive Skype chat from Windows Live Messenger and Skype to Simkl servers automatically.
Connecting directly to the Simkl servers mean that there is no additional setup that is required after installation in order to access cloud storage and IM history viewer.
“We hope to put an end to the usual stress and frustration Skype users have to deal with whenever they need to record Skype conversations or save chat archives,” said the marketing director of the company while commenting on the Skype recorder launch.
Now there is no more worrying about call recordings “disappearing” as Skype users can now record all of their Skype calls for free. Of course, premier members will have the added advantage of automatically saving them to their personal Simkl cloud accounts. Free Skype recording option in mono or stereo stored on the user’s personal computer is also available.
Recording calls and chats can especially be useful to those who want to either store recording in separate sound channels for transcribing or mix sounds to record podcasts and interviews.
All Skype users who want to gain instant and direct access to all voice and text recordings, without worrying about high costs, restrictions or service limitations will surely find this new app useful.
Simkl is compatible with just about every IM client out there and currently claims to be the only service to offer a new software version of Skype recording service with cloud storage. So, sign in now and start using the IM Chat & Voice Recorder v 3.0.
In related news Skype released a new app for Android (News - Alert) devices. This update not only gives users the ability to sign in and merge with a Microsoft account, but also boasts better audio and a new design for tablets.
