Ever made plans or laid out action steps in your head while on a business call, and later wished you had taken notes?

Maybe you were on your Bluetooth headset while driving, or you couldn't find a pen. Or maybe you just plain hate scrawling anything on paper at all.

Enter Tote Notes, a brilliantly conceived app that pops up after voice calls so you can dictate notes before you forget any important details.

Here's how it works. Whenever you get off a call, a Tote Notes dialog box pops up asking whether you want to record a note. Say yes, and your note will automatically be recorded and e-mailed to you as an MP3 file, along with the contact info of the caller (if it's saved in your phone's address book), and a transcript of your recorded note in the body of the e-mail. In all of our trials, the app worked like a charm, and the transcriptions (powered by Google Voice) were more or less spot-on.

If you're a busy professional who often arranges meetings, makes deals, or discusses other important details over the phone, Tote Notes might be just the app for you.

Tote Notes (download) is available now for free in the Android Market. There's also a Pro version available for $3.99. Whichever you choose, be sure to check out our full review before downloading.
