Text messaging isn't just kid's stuff anymore. Use these amazing online tools to turn any SMS-capable phone into a productivity powerhouse.
3. Compose text messages with your voice
Most people who hate text messaging do so for the simple reason that it's such a hassle to compose messages using a mobile-phone keypad. You could always upgrade to a keyboard-equipped phone such as the RIM BlackBerry Curve, but even those models are 'all thumbs' when it comes to text input.
Plus, it seems excessive to spend hundreds of pounds on a new phone just for the sake of easier text messaging.
Instead, let your voice do the legwork (or fingerwork). A free service called Jott will transcribe your spoken message into text and deliver it via SMS to anyone in your contact list (which you have to set up in advance on the Jott site).
Just speed-dial Jott from your mobile phone, say the name of the person you want to contact, and then start talking. (Remember to keep it short: text messages can't be longer than a few sentences.
Sadly for us, Jott is currently available only in the US and Canada. So hands up whose going to start a UK-version then?
