Stop shouting! Start remembering

Many is the time that people are involved in arguments where one party claims that they said or did not say something that the other argument starter clearly remembers that they did. Without proof, there was nothing that could be done.

Step forward the iPhone applelet, iRecall.

"This is a major step forward in app technology," said App World! editor, Mac Buck. "This app is using the Apple iCloud to it's full potential."

Originally developed to be a life blogger, iRecall has found a dual use. The phone constantly records every conversation, using voice recognition technology to apply meaningful meta-tags to the conversation, along with the date and time to allow it to be retrieved easily, and searched.

"This latest version can even identify the person you are talking to," said Buck. "If the camera can see them, and they are in your friends list on Facebook. Oh, and if they are using a profile picture of their own face."

With full recall of every conversation the app owner has ever had has led to iRecall's major use as an argument winner, especially when proving to waiters what you actually ordered is not what came.

"I've been using iRecall in arguments," said Buck. "It's very effective. I remember having a conversation with App World!'s photographer about him mocking up pictures of a hybrid Nexus iPhone that we got in trouble about. He seemingly couldn't remember the conversation. A couple of seconds in iRecall and there was the conversation. As it happened in this particular case, he was right, and I'd told him it was okay, but the argument was settled."

Apple Core, who created the applelet claim no responsibility for the user's faulty memory. Apple Core also strongly suggest that it is not used by men in arguments with women as an iPhone is expensive to replace.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
