Reach Out & Touch
I need an application to keep track of when the last time I contacted someone was, and list them by most recently contacted. I want to make more of an effort to keep in touch with those around me.

I could easily go days without thinking about reaching out to people. It's not that I dislike them or don't care, but that I often get wrapped up in things going on around me. I get home from work, find something to eat, and start playing a game, watching something online, or catching up on my feed reader, and that will very easily consume my entire evening until it's time to go to bed.

I've lost touch with quite a few people this way. They probably think I'm trying to ignore so they don't reach out. Most of the people I've stayed in touch with are those who I see at work or who have been persistent about contacting me regularly (a few times a month a few times a week).

Are you on Facebook?

Yeah. I let my public LJ posts get cross-posted there, and I'll comment on other posts, but that's it.

It doesn't track who I text message, call, or email (nor do I have any desire to let it!), and it doesn't show when I last contacted someone. I would prefer that functionality stay local to my phone or personal computer.

Yeah.... I'd rather a passive notification I check, rather than clippy in my face two minutes after I've contacted someone. :-P
