I found my new favorite helper application today. Jott.
You call a number, tell it your 30 second message, and it translates and emails the message to you or whomever you have designated in the contacts. Is this ever so much better than recording a note and having to transcribe it later?? Yes it is!
Take all the stuff from your leaky unreliable brain and put it in a reliable central storage vault like Gmail or whatever safe and searchable email inbox you have.
It’s Free! It’s Easy! It Works! It’s very cool! I tried it handsfree in my car today and it transcribed my message and sent it to Gmail. Perfectly.
