Parrot for BB10 updated with automatic call recording, optional media key, and more

Parrot, a sound and voice recording app for BB10, has been updated with several new features. The free version has a new icon, theme, and visual style, as well as some under-the-hood optimizations to make it ride faster. The $2.99 (£2.00) Pro version now has call recording, password protection (built on the BB OS Cryptographic kernel) for your library of recordings, track importing, and an optional media key dedicated to starting and ending recordings.

After the update, Parrot can also recognize when a phone call begins and ends, and automatically start and stop recording accordingly. The app can also prompt the user on the call screen to manually start recording the current call. It asks the user for permissions to do both things, so if you don't want Parrot poking around with its beak, simply don't permit it to.

Does anyone really care? It's for Blackberry and nobody uses them anymore

Our office manager and the US president still care! :)

I still use a BlackBerry, as do millions of others.

I know one person that still uses blackberry and trying to get him to leave that. Our president (who is the worst of all time) would be a great addition to Blackberry as maybe he can make them bankrupt even more just like he did to our country. They both need to get lost
