Let me start off by stating that I do not text. My wife has recently become accustomed to text messaging and my days of not texting are most likely numbered. My eventual entrance into the text messaging world will most likely involve Jott.
Jott is a hands free mobile e-mail service that allows users to send a text/e-mail to a contact by simply calling the Jott service and dictating a message. Jott then sends an e-mail and a text to the contact that you requested. No need to fiddle around with learning how to type on those annoying little keypads. There is a simple How-to page available on Jott’s website. You can also send reminders to yourself and hit your Twitter account with updates if that is your cup of tea.
There are also quite a few third party web services that can be used via Jott. Among those is I Want Sandy. This service allows you to call in reminders, appointments, to-dos, contacts, notes – even look things up – right from your phone using just your voice.
Hand held devices are becoming more common, and services like Jott are bringing us one-step closer to a paper-less world. If Jott isn’t the exact service for you, check out their competitors before discounting the concept completely.
