reQall is a voice-enabled memory tool that integrates mobile phone, email and instant messaging into an organizer and reminder system. It lets you capture thoughts and ideas before you forget, wherever you are. It allows you to share reminders with family and co-workers, retrieve relevant information at the appropriate time, and remember important events.

I have been using reQall for a few years now and I find the tool indispensable. I primarily use it to store things that I need to remember while away from my computer. I use the time when driving alone as my think time. This is my time to come up with new ideas or solve issues. When I think of something important, I speed dial reQall through my Bluetooth enabled GPS, and send myself a voice note. This voice message gets transcribed into text, and both audio and text message is sent to my email. How many times did you think of something important while driving, only to forget as soon as you stop the car?

Another cool feature of reQall is the ability to send reminders to your friends and family by email. All this can be done by voice. Now you have an option of leaving reminders by email whenever you are. If you send reminders for yourself, you can use the reQall website to view your reminders. You also have the option to integrate this to your favorite calendar using iCal.

If you go reQall Pro, you have the option of a person proofreading your voice transcriptions. You also get a location-based reminder. For example, get notified you need to buy milk when your phone detects you are near the grocery store. You can read more user stories from the reQall website.
