A couple of posts ago we introduced Jott. Jott is now owned by Nuance, which gave us Dragon Naturally Speaking, the speech recognition tool. Unfortunately, Jott has significantly increased its price so we’ve turned to Reqall which does much the same thing for less. Both Jott and Reqall are speech-to-text (or regular text-to-text) reminder systems. Reqall is available for the iPhone but I drink a different brand of kool-aide so I’ll describe how it works for the BlackBerry.
Too many gadgets, too little time. Nonetheless we spend a good deal of time checking out new productivity tools that have zero learning curve, zero (or next to zero) setup curve and that are actually useful. Jott gets the nomination on all three counts. Their slogan “Talk to Jott, get simple back” is for real. So what is Jott. Jott is something for your cell phone.
