See Contacts Notes During Calls with Call Notes

Long gone are the days when we were limited by the phone books of our dumb phones to store numbers of only the closest of our contacts. Smartphones now allow practically limitless phone book entries, and we often end up saving numbers of people we have just met once or twice. In such cases, it’s sometimes useful to jot down a note about them in order to remember them when they call.

While our smartphones do allow us to save notes for our contacts, the stock dialer app and even most third-party dialer replacements don’t show them when they’d serve the most use: when receiving a call. XDA Forum Member nikanorov, who previously brought us Download Scheduler, has come up with a solution for this with his app Call Notes.

Call Notes does one thing, and it does this well. It lets you save notes for your contacts, and then it shows them on screen when they call you or you call them. If you don’t care for the note to be displayed throughout the entire call, you can specify a duration for it to be displayed. After the preset time, it is automatically dismissed. You can also choose the note’s size, color, background color and alignment.

More information and download links can be found in the forum thread.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
