aNewDomain.net – I spend a good amount of time on my smartphone. While I use it for email and apps on the road, I also make a lot of phone calls. There are times when I have to look back, either for billing purposes or to recall a series of events, and know when a particular phone call happened. This used to mean digging through my phone logs, and then I found CallTrack from Asterdroid Mobile.
CallTrack is a free app for Android that automatically logs your phone calls onto a Google Calendar. This gives you an easy way to look back over your call history and find information. CallTrack does little more than read the data in your call log. However, the visualization of your phone calls on a calendar makes it far easier to sort, and it even gives you the ability to search and find call records by phone number. This feature alone has saved me quite a bit of time.

The program is simple to configure and has very few options: you can choose to log incoming, outgoing or missed calls. You can log the calls to any calendar available to your Google account. And you can toggle the logging on and off, in case there’s a call you’d rather not record. I like apps that do one thing and do it well, and CallTrack certainly falls into that category.
While CallTrack won’t dramatically change your life, it’s something you should consider having. If you use your phone for business and personal calls, this app could make it easier to track your expensable calls. If you’re a professional who bills for calls, you could share this calendar with your assistant or manager to expedite the process. The possibilities are endless, really.
Do you know of a better app that does the same sort of function? Maybe you know of an app that performs similarly for iOS or Blackberry. If you do, please leave that feedback, or any other feedback you might have, in the comments section below.
You can download CallTrack from Google play.
