Want to leave a message on your computer while on the road?

As discussed in class there are many different social media tools, today I am going to discussed SMS /Voice social media tools. SMS, which stands for Short Message Service, is the most widely used data application in the world. Most commonly known as text-messages, most SMS are done from mobile to mobile. Examples of SMS are Jott and Kwiry.

For a fee of $9.95 a month, Jott is a service that will transcribe your voicemail messages. As a subscriber you can choose to receive your voicemail via text or email. This makes it easier for you to respond, forward and store your voicemail. Also, a simple phone call can capture notes, messages, appointments, etc. The third option Jott has is to allow salesperson to update their accounts from a phone call. In simple terms, Jott is a virtual outlook. This service is used by business professionals who do not always haves access to their computer. Facilitating on the road business, professionals do not have to worry about loosing an important message. If you are interested in learning more about Jott go to the following link http://jott.com/default2.aspx .

Kwiry was a SMS service that allows users to text their computers before they forgot it. However as of April 23, this service was discontinued
