If you’re the type of person who wants to keep track of all the calls and messages that you make, sometimes your smartphone’s built-in tracker just is not enough. Callistics - Call Statistics just might be the solution for you as it promises to be the ultimate tool for giving you an efficient way of keeping tabs on how many calls and messages you’ve made and to make sure that you don’t overspend on your mobile carrier plans.
Unlike the native call and message log of your phone, Callistics offers more than just letting you know how many minutes you’ve logged in or how many messages you’ve sent. It can show you your message and calls statistics for a specific period of actual time, to give you a basic idea of what are your usage patterns. Aside from your personal need to know, you can also use this for company purposes, if you want to monitor your or your employees’ business line usage.
The app can also give you metrics per contact, showing you which among the people in your phonebook you call or message constantly. This can be handy if you have too many people in your phone book, and you’d like to favourite those whom you keep in touch with the most. If you’d like to receive notifications if you’re nearing your set number of hours for calls or your allocated free messages, you can also set the app to notify you if you’ve already reached the threshold. You can set the billing period as well as the details of your mobile carrier plan.
While all of this seems pretty neat (if you’re into that sort of thing), you might think this will be another app that can affect your phone’s battery life. But it won’t really run in the background the entire time so it will not be a drain on your battery. The app supports most major mobile providers around the world including Vodafone, Orange and US carriers T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon, among others.
