reQall 2.0 improves memory for today's connected, but forgetful
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif., March 6 /CNW/ -- reQall (http://www.reqall.com)
today launched reQall 2.0, a groundbreaking, free memory aid to help people
better manage their busy lives. Based on pioneering research from MIT's Media
Lab, reQall 2.0 is an easy-to-use personal memory assistant that works across
all aspects of your life. It's an always-with-you digital "memory pad" and
memory jogger for your to-dos, ideas, shopping lists, visual reminders, or
anything else you worry you will forget. From home to work, on your cellphone,
on the Web, and with your friends and family, reQall is designed to help you
remember better in whatever way suits you.
Although built on complex technology, reQall is fundamentally easy to
use: There is no software to install, and no technology to think about -- a
voice and a phone is all that is needed. Simply tell reQall and it does the
rest: if you mention a grocery item, it will automatically be added to your
shopping list; if you mention a friend's name and say 'ask', a reminder will
automatically be sent to that friend.
A key feature of reQall 2.0 is the ability to allow users to be reminded
in multiple ways: cell phone, text messaging, instant messaging, email, or
Web. These 'triggers' are ideally suited to best jog the memory of today's
connected but forgetful individuals.
Additionally, reQall 2.0 helps others to remember with its shared
reminder functionality. Users simply add their friends, family, or business
contacts to their reQall profile and the reQall system takes responsibility
for setting and sending reminders to them in the format that they choose.
When it comes to jogging your memory, reQall 2.0 makes it easy.
Here's an example of how you can use reQall:
-- Simply dial reQall's toll-free number and say "buy Easter gifts before
-- The message will immediately be converted into text and delivered in
whatever way you specify.
-- The reminders can be sent as an email, added to your calendar, as a
text message, via instant messaging, automatically added to your to-do
list or sent to a friend or family member.
"Everyone today is busier, more distracted and overwhelmed than at any
other time in history, so who doesn't need help remembering?" says Sunil
Vemuri, reQall's co-founder and chief product officer. "With reQall 2.0, we're
harnessing the power of your voice to help you remember and provide you with
automatic reminders, in whatever way works for you. It's simple but powerful
and has been specifically designed for today's hectic lifestyles."
Although reQall works on any phone, it shines on Apple's iPhone, where it
acts as a personal and sharable Task Manager. This is no accident: founding
reQall members and advisors hail from Apple Computer.
