"Tip of the Week" - Get 'Jott' ing

I'm late to the game on this one as I've read previous posts on the wonders of Jott.  But better late than never.  I've become a convert.

Jott is a terrific free service in beta. You call Jott toll free and you make notes to yourself without having to 'jot' it on a piece of paper which you inevitably lose.  It then sends your message to you (or whoever else you have on your jott account) via e-mail with scheduled reminders if you want as well as to your cell phone.  You can even create blog posts!

For instance, I was in the car and remembered (as we all do) that I needed to wrap presents on Friday for a nephew's birthday party, make a phone call to my sister-in-law to see how her mother did in surgery the previous day and pick up parmesan cheese at the grocery store for pasta that night.  I left a message to myself which displayed the message in an e-mail as well as sent me a reminder that Friday morning.  I can have the initial message and reminder in both text and audio...and on my cell phone. It worked like a charm.  If it questioned a word spelling it put a question mark right next to it.  But there were no typos or mispellings.  It's great to send messages to colleagues, too.

Now I just have to get used to using Jott which should be very easy.  And it's eco-friendly...no more paper!  I am so tired of using paper.

So, check it out.

Jott is one of the greatest tools out there for the solo or any home office business owner. It is like having an assistant you can carry around in your pocket or your computer bag. I use it daily to send myself notes and to-dos when I am on the road or away from the office and/or computer. It works great.

I just tried JOTT over the weekend. What a wonderful tool for those of us that have our great ideas while driving, or otherwise away for the office. So far I love it. Thanks for the tip!!!
