If you happen to have the attention span of a goldfish, keeping a track of your daily calls can be a mammoth task. For the forgetful bunch out there, Microsoft has created a contacts app to make sure that you never forget what you want to talk about. Microsoft Connections app is the ultimate call reminder that helps you remember the things you want to talk about.

The call-based reminder app allows you to always stay on top of things when someone calls you. You can set up Microsoft Connections app to automatically pop up every time a particular contact calls you. For instance, you can note down all the things you want to about to your boss, and when your boss calls, the reminders will pop up on the screen.
