Ever have to write an important message to yourself on the back of a receipt, scrap paper, or even a napkin?  Jott.com is set up to resolve this issue for you.  Once you sign up, you will be able to send messages from your cell phone to your email.  So if you are on the run and someone tells you an address or important message that you need to remember, just call the Jott number with your cell phone and speak out the information once it starts recording.  The result?  You can check your email when you get to a computer and find your “spoken” message sent to you as an email from Jott.  I was a bit skeptical about it thinking “how can it understand what I’m saying?”  The first time I tested it, Jott could not understand my message.  Some of my colleagues concluded it was because of the signal of my cell phone.  I tried it again and it worked perfectly.  Most importantly, it annotated my voice message perfectly well.  I think this is great for those of us who don’t have the luxury of a blackberry, iPhone, or other pda device that allows you to access internet or document applications.  I have a basic cell phone and have started to use this for those important messages that I don’t want written on my hand!  Best of all…it is FREE!
