Best App for Tracking Conversations

Personal history: Contacts Journal lists your contact-specific activities on individual contact screens. The To-Do and Favors tabs let you note next steps or bank good deeds. You can also view interactions and tasks for all contacts at once for a big-picture view of all your people-specific to-dos and to-dones. The app syncs with the Contacts app, giving you one-tap options to call, text, or email anyone from their detail screen.

Log Rolling: The app’s log screen keeps things simple to encourage quick journal entries. Jot down every interaction to track clients’ personal info, client deliverables, the appetizer they chose at lunch, whatever—any info you might want to remember later. The somewhat misnamed Title field is really a field to enter the meeting type, offering a prefab list of interactions (lunch, phone, email, meeting, and so on).

The app also tracks contact-specific to-dos and even favors owed and given.
