 Jott Appointments, Reminders & Notes with Your Voice
I recent­ly decid­ed to give the voice to text appli­ca­tion, Jott a try, and so far, I real­ly like it. I am fast at typ­ing on my com­put­er and iPhone. How­ev­er, when I’m dri­ving my mind thinks about a lot of things: reminders, appoint­ments, fol­low ups, ideas, etc. I can­not always get out my phone and type every­thing down the moment I think about it. Now, with Jott I can voice what I want done and in sec­onds, my voice is record­ed, turned into text and record­ed in the prop­er place. For exam­ple, if I want to set an appoint­ment on my Google cal­en­dar with a client for 1:00PM on a Fri­day, I call the toll free Jott num­ber, Say Google Cal­en­dar” and after the beep I respond with Mar­ket­ing Meet­ing with Client Today at 1PM.” I then hang up…and in a few min­utes, my Google Cal­en­dar dis­plays Mar­ket­ing Meet­ing with Client” at 1PM.” Jott is a great way to send your­self reminders and voice mem­os via email or right on your cal­en­dar. So instead of tex­ting while dri­ving, use Jott on your mobile phone. Oh, and you don’t need an iPhone. It works with just about any device. The cost is around $3.95 a month. If it saves you time, it is def­i­nite­ly worth it. Jott also has a more expen­sive sub­scrip­tion for Sales­force CRM users. This price is $25 a month. To me, it is very steep, and I don’t know who would use it as Sales­force alone is already pricey at $65 per mobile user.
