Recall for iPhone App Review
You know how it is, some recommends a movie or a book to you and you make a mental note to look out for it. Then when the time comes and you log onto Amazon so you can indulge yourself in all these things people have insisted you just can’t live without… your mind goes blank and you completely forget what you were looking for. If you’re anything like me, you’ll also forget literally everything in the world you like, and so leave empty handed. One option would be to write all this down, but better still you could download Recall for the iPhone.
Recall is a handy little app that collects all these recommendations together for you so you can keep track of all the things you intend to see, read or listen to. It currently has an introductory price of $0.99 fin the App Store and is compatible with the iPhone 3GS and third generation iPod Touch onwards, with a minimum requirement of iOS 5.1.
Recall is laid out in a simple way that avoids clutter and is very easy to use. You can probably figure it all out for yourself but help is included in the form of a tutorial if you need it. All added items are collected neatly in different categories, such as Music and Movies, as well as an Other option for anything else that doesn’t fit. Some may not like the limited categories but it is a minor complaint and an edit button helps to remedy this.
Adding a new entry is a simple procedure that you can kick off with a tap of the “+” button. This will open a search feature that will allow you to type in what you intend to experience in the near future. Findings are accompanied with various details, such as release dates, descriptions and ratings. For example, a film will include a synopsis and rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Tap Add and it will join your list.
Sometimes you don’t remember the name of what you are looking for but a handy browse function makes it easier to find as New Releases will show you what is currently out or soon to be out, while Top Charts Lists will show you the most popular items in your chosen field. A nice touch is the ability to add reminders, which is especially useful when you receive notification that an upcoming release has become available.
Recall is a simple app that may not be entirely necessary since you already have the ways and means to set individual reminders but it does make things a lot simpler by grouping everything in one place in an easy to browse format. Notifications are an added bonus as you can enter an upcoming release and then forget about it until it is actually out. If you find you do need to keep track of recommendations like this then this is as good as such an app can be and is highly recommended. Make a note to download it.
