The concept is elegant and simple: (1) Call Jott from your phone. (2) Speak a message to “me” (yourself) or to a person on your contact list. (3) Jott converts your spoken message as a text message, and sends it to the recipient’s phone and/or e-mail account.
I really like this idea because I like text messaging, but hate composing a text message (I know, it’s an artform that takes time and paitence, and any 12 year-old punk out there could be the Texting Master to me, the Carpal Tunnel Padawan….). Using Jott.com, I can speak my message, it gets sent in the format I was after, and I don’t blow 10 minutes of my life.
One issue I did note is that test messages I created to 24 – 28 minutes to get transcribed by the system, and sent out. Maybe I’m just used to everthing being at “Web speed” – as in, any wait is too long.
I plan on trying Jott out when I’m walking or hiking, since I haven’t figure out how to secure a notepad or laptop to myself when out – but that’s when I do my best thinking.
