Jott it down on your mobile

Logo130x55.pngEver find that using a mobile to send a very quick short email is a needlessly long and drawn out affair? Checking emails on the go is a joy with most up to date handsets, but unless you own a Blackberry sending them is not quite so hassle free owing to the lack of a querty keyboard. But that is all about to change because a new free service called Jott has set its sights on revolutionizing dictation and memos for busy professionals.

It works like this; you call Jott and after the beep leave a voice message of up to 30 seconds in length. The Jott service then transcribes your message and emails it to you or to whomever you need to send it to. Very handy for those who need to send quick messages on the move with their mobile.

The idea is disarmingly simple and although the 30 second limit may seem a bit tight, there is talk of a future premium addition that will add other features for a small fee. Jott’s creator former Microsoft executive has stated however, that there will always be a free ad funded basic service available. Jott is currently only available in the US and Canada, here’s hoping the beta makes its way over to Europe before long. Look out legal secretaries, your transcription days may be numbered.
