We’ve never had a good reason to need to record a phone call, but we know that some people have. It’s the kind of thing that you may only need once, and not being able to do so can lead to all kinds of untold misery. If you ever think that recording a call on an iPhone is something that could be of benefit to you, then you might want to check out this new iPhone case.

Available for $29 as part of an Indiegogo campaign that’s hoping to raise $30,000 in order to get started, the “Just In Case” call recording iPhone case is actually a self-contained device that doesn’t connect to your iPhone at all, and that’s what makes it so useful.

While obviously providing somewhere to keep your iPhone, the Just In Case iPhone case has a well-placed microphone that is capable of capturing both your voice and that of the other caller and then saving the call as an MP3 to the included 2GB SD card. Buyers can, of course, put their own, larger card in there should they see fit, but given the fact this is audio we’re recording, we expect 2GB to be plenty for most.

The case not only records audio but also timestamps it for later retrieval, and the JIC only has two buttons, making it super easy to use. One button is the start/stop recording button, while the other is to initiate playback through a speaker on the back of the case. There’s a rechargeable battery included that is said to be good for 8 hours of use, too.

That $29 is early-bird pricing, so if you think this is something that you may want in the future, now would be a good time to get your order in before the price goes up. We’re not sure we’d use this thing as a case day in, day out, but if recording calls is your game, this has to be worth checking out.

JIC-colors

JIC is available in red, black, blue, white, yellow, and green case colors, is designed for iPhone 5 and above, and will start start shipping in May 2016.
