Jott Thought: Jott out of Beta!
Powered by Jott
Expanded Thought: Got my email today that Jott is out of BETA. They thanks us, and now ask us to choose a plan purchase. Jott Basic (Free / Ad Support / Limited Functionality), Jott ($3.95 a month – similar features as before), Jott Pro ($12.95 – all features including some connectors to smart phones.)
Let’s see how many people stick with Jott. I will be, it has improved my productivity greatly.

I think I might…my self-notes sort of migrated to my netvibes page and since I’m not driving 1.5 hours to get home anymore, I don’t use it as often. My wife thinks it’s a cool service that she may be willing to pay for since she is the texter in the family. $4 a month isn’t a killer. I’ll probably try it for a month and see what the usage is.

Great point BJ, it’s the texting that has me hooked. My sons text like there’s no tomorrow so I picked up the unlimited messenging option for my AT&T Family account. I can’t stand typing on the phone keypad. This makes Jott invaluable to me.
Also, the ability to create Jott groups and send one text to all from my voice is just a productivity multiplier I have come to depend on.

Seems like the one feature I tried–texting to phones from computer–is now a fee service. Unfortunately, I never got even beta to work with our cell services–Cricket, and a bargain basement provider.
Having said that, it’s still on my ‘list’ as I think it’s a bridge between those who don’t text, and those who do…sort of a generation gap-filler, if you will!

I used all the services before they came out of BETA. I haven’t brought myself to purchase a subscription yet, but am planning to. The Jott to Twitter was interesting. The Jott to WordPress was interesting. Jott to distribution list (some email addresses, some SMS) was truly awesome. That was my biggest time saver.
One time we were at a football game and spread out over the stadium, one Jott to the group (SMS) and we all knew it was time to leave and where to meet. What a time saver.
