    Jott + I Want Sandy

    So, I discovered Jott yesterday and then saw a link to iwantsandy.com

    www.jott.com
    www.iwantsandy.com

    which sounds like a nasty site dedicated to Olivia Newton-John's character from Grease, but is not.

    anyway, it is basically a calendar/reminder that you email to put things on your calendar, lookup lists, etc. (I think this is the point of Speero's Sapie?)

    If you link Jott and Sandy, you can basically call from your phone and put appointments on your calendar. It claims to integrate somehow with Outlook.

    anyone else try this?

    Yeah, it seems pretty simple after you figure out that you don't have to do all the stuff.

    Set up Jott (which I know you already have Scott! :) ) and assign it a Speed Dial.

    Jott asks Who you wanna Jott? You say Sandy, Jott beeps and you say "Remind me to turn the oven on at 2pm" and at some specified time prior to 2pm, you get a Text or Email from Sandy reminding you.

    hmz.... you might be on to something, but as Scott said that would take some getting used to + you need to memorize the "settings" you want.

    No, you would just set those up on the Web Page settings. Like, I want my reminders to hit me 15 or 10 or 20 minutes before appointments. Also, Sandy will email you every morning with a list of the stuff for you to do that day.

    I guess I've just got so many little things to remember that aren't "big" enough to make it to my real To-Do list that this would help me not have to bother AND I can just say it into my phone without trying to text when I think of it. Of course, you can still email your instructions to her.

    Face it, RB, your life just isn't *complicated* enough for Sandy!! :) LOL

    Ya know I was teasing RB!

    Sandy is all they got and, of course there was a power outage or something where Sandy's servers are (technical mumbo jumbo here) but she's back on-line now...

    Sorry--i went to lunch.

    anyway, you link Jott and Sandy at www.jott.com

    RB, I suppose you could name Sandy something else like "Fred" but she would still call herself Sandy...
