Other than some spoof apps and paid services there is no app to record conversations like most other phones I've owned before. Why cant they make this app? If its because its illegal in some places to record conversations than why do a lot of other phones have this feature?

Apple doesn't allow 3rd-party apps to access the microphone/incoming audio during a phone call, so developers can't make apps that do this and get them approved for the App Store. There may be apps available like this for jailbroken iPhones through Cydia, but everything in the App Store will require some sort of work-around to remain acceptable to Apple.

I agree that Apple wouldn't allow it. But, I am still surprised that no one has developed this kind of App for Cydia.
