Are you ever driving along in the car when you suddenly remember something you forgot to do before you left the office? A creative service called Jott takes care of this very problem—free of charge. Call in, tell Jott who you want to remind, and state your message. It will transcribe it to text and send an email notification. Jott yourself or your friends and co-workers, and login to your account any time if you want to check up your reminder list.
A similar service is Pinger. This service, also free, sends a text message with a link to a voice message that you record. You can send to one person or a group simultaneously. It’s a great way to share a quick personal message, especially when tone of voice matters and there’s no need for an immediate response.
