Don’t add to contacts, Qcktag it!

Featured on: "The idea behind this app is pretty brilliant because it keeps your phone’s contact list tidy" "Qcktag is the solution to a problem you probably didn’t realise you had. Once used it becomes a bit addictive and can be damn handy as well."

*** Now with Qcktag Caller ID - known tags are shown when receiving/making calls! ***

How often have you needed to save a phone number that you needed only for a short while?

You would add it to your contact list and clutter your contact list and it keeps growing uncontrollably. It would be difficult to find a contact from all the unwanted numbers that you just needed temporarily.

Or you would not add it to the contact list and struggle through the call history to find that number when you want to give a call back.

A dilemma isn’t it? Qcktag to the rescue!

Every time you complete a call from/to an unknown number, Qcktag will ask you for a quick tag you can attach to the phone number. Tagged numbers are not sent to the contact list, but are accessible through the main Qcktag application.

Free version is limited to 6 tags. Upgrade to Pro for unlimited tags.

• Works for both incoming and outgoing calls
• Works for incoming SMS too!
• Option for either a notification or a popup asking for the tag
• ‘Tag Later’ - option to save all numbers as untagged and you can tag them later
• Qcktag Caller ID - For tagged numbers, if you receive/make calls to them, the tag will be displayed when call is initiated or received.
• Option to tag all numbers or only unknown numbers
• Add tags manually, from existing contact or from call history!
• If adding from existing contact, option is available to remove from contact list.
• Quickly search for tags
• Quickly call or message a tagged number. You can also share tags and add tags as calendar events
• Option to add to contacts if you eventually find out it is a number worth keeping
• Android Wear support! Now tag your phone calls with voice from your Android Wear watch
• Backup and restore tags and preferences

Free version is limited to 6 tags. Upgrade to Pro for unlimited tags.

A note about permissions:
READ PHONE STATUS – This is needed to detect when you complete a call so that Qcktag can ask for a tag
NEW OUTGOING CALL – To detect when you initiate a new going call. READ_PHONE STATUS does not give me this information.
READ CONTACTS – Qcktag will tag unknown numbers. To check if a dialed number is known or unknown, need to check the contacts list.
WRITE CONTACTS - If tagging existing contact, optionally remove the contact from contact list.
READ CALL LOG - Tag from call history
SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW (draw over other apps) - this will be used only if use the caller ID feature.
RECEIVE_SMS - to handle incoming SMS

Qcktag does not provide your personal information to anyone.

If you find any bugs or mistakes in the application, please send me an email with your feedback and I promise I will work on it promptly. Let’s squish those bugs together.

Whats new

    New features:
    1. Backup/Restore with Google Drive
    2. Option to disable notification/popup completely
    1. Better handing of phone area codes. So, if you tag 555 666 7777 and you get a call from +1 555 666 7777, the app recognizes the tag correctly.
    2. Granular permissions for Android M and above.

Been looking for something like this since a long time Very useful for saving temporary numbers like that of drivers, etc. Great job, dev!

Cody B

Excellent Add option for the notification to disappear automatically after a set time so I can use tags for every call but don't have to dismiss every notification. Automation would perfectly complete this app. Great work dev! EDIT: option added= THE PERFECT APP FOR CONTACTS!

Josh Zeno

Nice Features This is a nice little gem to have installed on my phone. It works as it's designed and has a very clean and functional interface (even better with material design elements). Went pro for $2 after a couple of weeks on the free version... Still use it daily.

Devin Feagin

Great App! I own a moving company and handle a lot of calls. So I was looking for a quick way to save temporary numbers, so they don't clog up my main directory. This app does exactly that and more. It makes retrieving old numbers a breeze. Thanks for the awesome app!

shrinidhi naik

Good app but Sometimes it won't show the caller name which is tagged during an incoming call. But it will show the tagged name for an outgoing call.

Ken Ingram

Great app Great app, just needs an option to select time format. Not fond of military, 24 hour, format.

David Filstead

Excellent Application A must have!

Arjun Paliath

Amazing!!!! A wonderfully designed app which does what it's supposed to. And it just keeps getting better and better. Amazing job by the Dev.

Yudha Yan Kusuma

Great Idea & Excellent Support 5 stars if we could: 1) add numbers manually, 2) add numbers from contact, 3) sync across devices [Edited] No sync yet, but quick response from developer worth 5 stars alone.

Animesh sanyal

Nice app A very good app. Can u add option where I can disable notification option evertime I received an unknown call.

John Arnold

Snazzy If you are in business or you use your phone a lot this is a snazzy little app. I don't know how many times people call for my business that I don't want to make a personal contact BUT while cunducting business; sometimes for days on end, I like to have their temp number in a handy data base ready to dial. At any time. This program intergrates with the call log and memory window you can pull down on android, quickly adding or assigning their name, business name or whatever. No more looking thru phone logs.

Rahul Satheesh

Radha Sreedharan

Great idea and execution :) Initially, took me a while to get the hang of it but now that I did, it's great!! especially I used to keep forgetting old numbers as I wouldn't add it to contact.. tagging it is faster n easier.. I love the fact that it can be done right from the notifications page. very handy. this is now a home screen app for me ..

This should be a default android feature Very useful, especially when you are travelling. Helps keep critical numbers handy without cluttering contacts

Alex Alex

Limited to 6 tag - not useful at all. And I cannot find how to mark my old calls.

Nikita Balol

Definitely very useful.. suggestion:it would be helpful if the tagged unknown number would appear with the tagged name on the next call..i could easily avoid answering an unwanted call :-)

mithula shenoy

Awesome app!!! I soo love this app.. so useful. Usually when I need to save some number while on call its difficult but now its just that I need to type in the no and its saved.. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.

A very good app. Can u add option where I can disable notification option evertime I received an unknown call. Update: Not able to transfer the contact i saved in my old phone to new one. Need a process for that.

Edward Dalley

Good for trading exactly the right feature set for keeping the contact details of online auctioneers. Could maybe do with an email save aswell

Jatin Luthra

Such a Useful App It's a really useful app and would have been great of the tag would keep showing for an incoming call till the time call is picked up. Currently it goes of after blinking for 4-5 sec.

Excellent way to temporarily store #s until you have time to decide whether you want to add them to contacts.
