What is it and what does it do

Main Functionality

  • Beintoo rewards

Cons

Discussion

CallFlakes is app that will serve as your personal assistant when your are done making calls. The way it works is after you’re done making a call, a pop-up window will appear with several options. This is because the app wants you to settle whatever business you have to take care of after a call immediately. While this pop-up can be great, it can become incredibly annoying if you don’t have anything to do right after your call.

Once the pop-up window comes up, you will have quite a few options to choose from on how you want to follow up with that person. These options include sending an email or text, calling the person back, and even posting something to their Facebook or Twitter. This is great because it allows you to send the person information if they need it.  Additionally, you can schedule events or search the web all directly after a call.

[2]CallFlakes links up directly with your Facebook account. This is because CallFlakes will give you caller ID based on the numbers your Facebook friends have on their profile. This is actually great because it will let you see who is calling even if couldn’t have them in your contacts. While the Facebook integration is nice, it would be much better if some of the features didn’t rely on social networking.

This app also allows you to collect Beintoo rewards. For those of you not familiar with the service, Beintoo will allow you to redeem virtual cash for free coupons and other goodies from companies like Gap, Zappos, and Groupon. You can accumulate virtual cash by utilizing the CallFlakes productivity board.

Conclusion and download link

Overall, CallFlakes is a great application that can really increase your productivity. It will prove especially helpful if you are constantly on the phone for work or other impotent matters.

This app is highly recommended for anybody who finds themselves on the phone throughout the day.
