Jott Yourself a Reminder
I love the online service called Jott
. Currently in public beta, Jott is free, and oh, so useful!
With Jott, I send email to friends and colleagues - without typing. Here's how Jott works:
I call a toll-free number. The automated Jott bot asks, "Who do you want to Jott?"
I mention a name in my email address book, which I've already uploaded to Jott. Then I leave a 30 second (or under) message.Now, get this --
Jott types up my message, and emails it to the person I mentioned -- and gives me a CC email. Hands-free is lovely!
Perfect for when I'm on the road. You can be sure that the Jott toll-free number is programmed into my computer. I use it oodles. So do quite a few of my friends...But we use it for more than friendly emails and IMs.
I use it for reminders and to-do lists. (Seems I get more ideas when I'm on the road than when I'm in front of the computer.) I also use Jott to Twitter
: and some folks use Jott to post blogs or Google calendar content. You can also choose to send yourself a reminder or a to-do list: a terrific feature for project managers.Sometimes, Jott bobbles a word or two
-- especially proper names. (I've found that it absolutely massacres Polish surnames -- and offers a hilarious interpretation of the Michigan town "Saugatuck".) So while Jott's not perfect, it's incredibly useful and utterly enjoyable.
You might want to try Jott while it's still in Beta.
