I wanted Jott before I knew about it!

I was going over some to-do list stuff in my head the other day while I was driving, and I kept forgetting the first thing I thought of by the time I got to the next thing! Then when I got into the office, it all went away when I had to jump into whatever was going on there…so much for remembering what I needed to do! Should I buy a pocket voice recorder? I can’t really type fast enough on my Treo 650 to make that useful while thinking fast (not while driving, anyway). But today on the Church IT Podcast someone mentioned Jott. It’s free (first plus!) and it does several things. The most useful is just to call their phone number, they recognize you based on Caller ID, and then you just say who you want to send a Jott to (“me” works) and then record up to a 30 minute message that is transcribed with voice recognition software and emailed to you (or whoever you sent it to).

It’s just what I was looking for, and I’m looking forward to using this a lot in the near future! Great timing, and I learn so much new stuff every Church IT Podcast I can’t recommend it highly enough if you’re in Church IT!
