The red "double-high" bar shown at the top of your screen is actually shown by Apple for any application that is using the microphone in the background and it shows "App name (recording)" by default for any app that uses the microphone in the background. This also applies to Skype while there is a call in progress. (it's the iOS notification that creates the confusion) - in reality no calls are recorded.
I hope this explains it.

You need to be careful if you see that a Skype call is recording. When I used to Skype with my boyfriend, I noticed that when I minimized the Skype call screen and did an internet search while the call was still in progress, there was a red bar above the internet browser that said "Skype Call Recording". In the past when I Skyped, that bar had only said "Skype Call in Progress." I mentioned it to my boyfriend and he insisted it was nothing, even sent me a link to this thread with other people agreeing that it's nothing. Eight months later, I found out he'd purchased a software called Evaer to record our calls without my knowledge. If you see that alarming little "recording" notice, it's not kidding- the call is literally recording. So keep your clothes on.
