New tool records Skype conversations

ExtraLabs Software launches Skype Recorder

New software for the Skype internet telephony service allows users to record their phone conversations and save them on their computer as digital multimedia files.

The recorder operates on all versions of Windows - from 95 through to Vista - and on all versions of Skype.

"We have been engaged in the development of RSS and Skype technologies for five years already and we know what our customers need," says Andy Cheiney, the head of the marketing department at ExtraLabs.

The Skype recorder is available on ExtraLabs' website for us$13.96 (£7) for a single computer licence.
