Last April I was forced with a dilemma. I was a user of a web based service called Jott, but they had been acquired by another company who had swallowed their technology to incorporate it into another project. Jott, as I know it and loved it, ceased to exist.
Without going into great detail, Jott was a web based service that let you create multiple todo lists. You could enter them either by text or by typing and then set alarms. When the time came, Jott would send you an email and a text message reminder. It was great for those times in the car when you suddenly had a great thought or remembered something but you couldn't write it down. You'd just call Jott, dictate it and easily within 30 minutes, it was transcribed and available to you in whatever list you specified.
When Jott had the plug pulled, I was despondent. I had been using it and even recommended it to patients. There were people all over the country that had heard me talk about it in lectures that were using it. I was bummed!
I made a blog post about the demise of my beloved Jott and , like most instances in my life, technology came through! My blog post brought comments from 2 readers. The first was from Trader Jones and the second was from my buddy Marty Jablow. Both of them were former Jott users who had moved to Reqall.
Reqall was a Jott competitor who had survived the shakedown of the buyout that Jott had gone through. So... I deleted by Jott account & then moved some of my lists over to Reqall. I started with things that weren't "mission critical" if I lost them. You know, things like music that I was thinking of downloading, and items I was considering picking up at Home Depot, Micro Center, and Radio Shack.
Once those items were transferred and not lost, I began to really use Reqall. It became my "go to" place for organizing my life. Reqall now holds all of my "todo's", "follow ups", etc. After using a free account for only about 2 weeks I jumped in with both feet and became a Pro Account Holder.
I'm here to tell you that if you are looking for a way to better organize your life, you definitely need to take a look at Reqall. The site and it's apps for both iOS and Android, keep me better organized and I don't forget things nearly as often. My life can be really crazy (more often than not these days) and it truly pays to have an electronic system looking over my shoulder to help me think about things I should be thinking about. Reqall is just the thing for people like me. For all the details, check out the company website.
