As popular as it may be, the famous Skype application still lacks the quite important feature of being able to record the calls and conversations to standalone audio files that you can play back at later times.
As its name suggests, this is a tool specifically developed to allow the recording of Skype audio calls to MP3 files. It can record all your Skype conversations, including conferences, and it can perform the automatic recording of every Skype call, without user intervention, upon the detection of the conversation. Therefore most of the time this tool will reside unobtrusively in the tray area as a single simple icon, but it can make sure that all your Skype calls get saved to MP3 files.
Another cool thing about MP3 Skype Recorder is that it can record several calls simultaneously (when one is active and the others on hold), and save every call in separate files. The sample rate or the bit rate of the output MP3 recordings can be tweaked to your liking. Last but not least, the interface of this tool is really intuitive, straightforward, and easy to use.
To sum it all up, MP3 Skype Recorder is a really handy and reliable tool that makes it easy for anyone to have their Skype audio calls conveniently saved to MP3 files.
