Nextcall: Simple app for scheduling call reminders for your phone contacts

June 28, 2012

It’s quite hard to juggle between your work, personal and social life, especially if you need to interact with a lot of people. Staying connected with them can be a tough challenge if you have hundreds of contacts stored on your smartphone’s address book. Keeping an organized address book is what many users want to achieve and if you have been constantly communicating with your friends and colleagues from work, then you certainly know how important it is to always stay connected.

There is always a time when you just forget whom to call and what to say during those conversations. If you have been experiencing this kind of dilemma, then it’s time for you to get organized with a helpful application known as Nextcall.

Fresh from the Google Play Store, Nextcall is a free application that brings a whole lot of features to the table with a simple effective purpose of keeping you informed of your contacts and, more importantly, reminding you of whom you should contact next. To help you with your reminders, Nextcall maintains a separate log for all your calls that you have made, whether for business or socializing.

Remembering the last call you made to your inner circle — like your dad or your boss — is easy, but you might have a few problems in remembering the last time you got in touch with other folks like your friend Tom. With Nextcall, say goodbye to these problems as the app is everything you need to straighten things up.

The app is simple and easy to use and you don’t need any advanced configurations to get you started. You don’t need to subscribe to services and don’t even need to log in. Upon launching the app, you’ll meet a Holo-themed interfaced that is split into three main columns: All, Business, and Personal.

Each tab is designed to be populated with relevant contacts for that list.  The next thing you need to do is to instruct the application about the contacts found on your phonebook so contacts can be sorted into personal or business groups. Adding a contact to its corresponding group is a piece of cake, as you only need to tap the icon displayed alongside the contact name to add. Tapping once will add the contact to the Business group, while tapping it twice puts that contact to Personal.

Once the necessary settings are in place, just hit the settings button found in the bottom right to load the default settings of the group. Sit back and relax as Nextcall will automatically remember everything.

If you need to edit a schedule for a specific contact, just hold down the dotted button below and swipe away to edit that contact. Editing mode features basic components such as editing names, specifying a schedule, and even swapping the contact’s group. Whenever the scheduled time has arrived, Nextcall will automatically alert you with suggestions of the people that you need to call.

Stay in control of your next calls.  Download the Nextcall application absolutely free from the Google Play Store.
