There are always new movies, music, books, TV shows, and apps coming out and friends giving recommendations about the old and new. It can be hard to keep track of what blockbuster hits you wanted to see, which Indie band your friend was telling you about, and that classic book you've been meaning to pick up for ages. With Recall for iPhone, you'll never forget again! Recall lets you quickly add music, movies, tv shows, apps and books to your list and provides you with all the info you need, allowing you to get in and out of the app within seconds.
