I Forgot Mobile Helps You Never Miss a Call Again

There are times when no matter how attached you might be to your mobile device, you inadvertently leave it behind. After all, we are all busy people—many of us with families with needs and wants. And needless to say, their well being comes before our little (and in the case of the Galaxy Note family, not-so-little) devices. Because of this, we are bound to forget the tools that we carry constantly.

Now, this would certainly not be an issue for many, but for those who depend on cellular technology to make a living, forgetting your cell phone at home (or anywhere for that matter) can be a rather problematic start of a day. Missed calls and messages are unacceptable, and could lead to missing out on a multi-million dollar deal or learning of other relevant news.

XDA Forum Member Sanjay RamSwamy designed a tool that takes the weight out of your shoulders in case you do forget your device. No, it is not a “locate my device” tool. Rather, it keeps you informed regarding missed calls and SMS messages while on the go, even if you do not have your phone with you. IFM (or I Forgot Mobile) is an application that sends notifications directly to your Email inbox whenever you receive a call or a SMS and you happen to miss it. The only thing that you will need to make sure is that your device is powered on and has an active data connection. This is a simple tool that could potentially save you from missing that one call you have been waiting for all week.

Sanjay is currently looking for feedback regarding bugs and glitches. Also, if you have suggestions, please make sure that you drop by the thread and let the OP know. Remember, all feedback is good feedback, particularly for ideas such as this.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Galaxy Unpacked: What is Samsung Going to Unveil?

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
