reQall Redux – A Real Life Example

On March 27, 2009

I’ve been on a bit of a reQall kick the last few days and with good reason. The new Pro version of the service adds some amazing functionality and the new iPhone app works exceptionally well.

At just $2.99 a month the service has the potential to be invaluable for the busy professional.

All this noted, though, it is one thing to read about how useful a product or service is from the developers and quite another to actually SEE how useful it is in day to day life.

So I share this experience with all of you…

At about 3 am this morning I woke up thinking about two calls that I HAD TO MAKE before noon today. When this has happened (often) in the past I have grabbed a pen and paper and made a note. When I did there was a 50% chance I would actually be able to READ what was there.

This morning I tried something different. I grabbed my iPhone and mumbled into it the tasks and the time they needed to be done. When I woke up I completely forgot about it. Thankfully, reQall hadn’t. At 10:30am this mothing an sms popped up on my iPhone and an email arrived reminding me that I needed to make the two calls. I made the calls and prevented myself from getting into hot water with two people.

In short… I’m sold!
