Jott is “bringing simple back”

As I mentioned in a previous post, social technologies and wireless are a pair of aces. Everyday I’m finding new ways to participate in this digital revolution. In fact, it is hard to keep up with all of the new technologies and I hope you’ll tip us to some stuff we haven’t seen.

In any case, I recently started utilizing Jott. I heard about Jott from Jonny Goldstein who has taught me a great deal about videoblogging and is a local leader in social media.

Jott has facilitated life for me in a few ways. First, it allows me to organize my thoughts and it centralizes them for me online. Gone are the days when I would leave myself voice-mails. With Jott, I can dictate a message using my blackberry and I can recall it online later. Jott transcribes the message for you.

On a related note, they have recently added additional functionality for the blackberry. You can download it here. Basically, if I get an email from you, I can hit "reply with Jott" and respond to your email via voice. Once again, Jott will transcribe the message and you will receive a reply email from me. A bonus feature by Jott is a "cc" to you on the email so that you can see if the message was transcribed accurately.

The next time you are out and about and you want to give the qwerty keyboard a break – give Jott a try. Jott is definitely "bringing simple back."
