As you can see by our coverage on WebWorkerDaily, we are really into taking notes, and setting reminders, covering everything from managing to do’s, Online vs. Offline notes, looked at a few online note taking solutions, as well as hyped the paper to do list. It’s a great habit to get into in order to get the job done, and there are many solutions out there that all have the final outcome, remembering to get something done.
So, when I came across the public beta of Jott, I asked myself, have we gone too far?
Is there really actually any need for this “obscenely simple” solution? Would people actually use this service in order to remember what they have to do? There are some who simply swear by this service, and are now addicted to Jott. Maybe there is something here because it is backed by one of the VCs who took an early flier on Skype.
Jott is pinned as a voice powered, hands free messaging and to do list. What the user would do is call the special Jot 11 digit number, say a message or note, and Jott will magically transcribe and deliver the text to both mobile phones and emails.
You can also send Jottcasts, where a list of contacts would get the same message. The Jott beta is currently open to US mobile phone subscribers only. What are your thoughts? Has the to do list hit a brick wall with this one? Or is this something that could help in your daily lives.
