This must be addressed
The voice memo app was a great idea but it is lacking probably the most important feature. It does not work during calls. We need to be able to record memos during phone calls (when they are active) right now when you attempt to use it the app prompts you to end your call. This is a no brainer. This is a feature we need. While not the most important it defeats the purpose of creating the app in the first place. I have another app that I use to record memos during calls and that is one of things I hate the most is having two apps that basically do the same thing.

As for making a voice memo while on call, as others said the mic is already in use. You can probably remember a thought for ~30 seconds to end the call and then make a memo.

No it's not illegal. The laws differ depending on state etc.. From what I understand a lot of areas allow recording as long as just one party is aware. Check out your local laws.
As for the subject of this thread, as lloft pointed out, this is nit about recording conversations. Personally I have no need at all for voice memo. A pad and pencil next to the phone have always worked for me. But it sounds like a good idea for those who can use it.

It depends on the state, each state has different rules. All states you need a warrant to record as a 3rd party, but some states allow we example:
If person A & person B are talking, some states allow either person A or B to record a conversation if they want without mentioning that they are recording.
Most states only allow recording only if one of the parties states they are recording the transmission or a third party has a warrant...
Its a state by state thing, mainly the law is designed so a 3rd party can not breach the privacy on your conversation.

Apple will not allow this because they're not going to open themselves to be a party to a lawsuit. I bet the law is strict in California.
It would be very easy to add as well. They just have to split the data stream so it records and goes to the phone at the same time and/or let you run the notes and mute the call at the same time.
