I just found a site that offers a very unique and helpful service that I think many people could use. The site is BrainCast. It’s a free message and memo service that allows you to record reminders for yourself on the go, and automatically delivers them to your PC at home for later use. You can even store and organize your messages online if you want to keep track of them.
Not only can you leave your self a message from anywhere using any US based cell or land line telephone network, but you can call the Braincast toll free number and access your messages via the phone anywhere you are at absolutely no cost.
For example- you are at work and a meeting is going to start in a few minutes, and you suddenly remember that you need to buy more laundry detergent. Quickly use your cell or telephone and leave yourself a memo. Go to the grocery store on your way home from work and when you have that nagging feeling that you are forgetting something you can call the Braincast toll free number to collect your message and get that reminder that you need to pick up laundry detergent, which you would have forgotten about if you hadn’t been able to listen to your message.
Whenever you leave yourself a message you’ll get an email reminding you that you’ve left a message. Then you can listen to your messages on the Braincast website or by calling the toll free number from anywhere that you happen to be. You can label your messages too, and by doing that you’ll be able to organize your messages anyway you want.
It’s free and I think it’s worth a try. I did not try out this service myself because I’m in Canada and the site states that it works with US based cell and telephone systems so I figured it wouldn’t work for me. I might sign up and see if I’m right later. Either way, I think this might be a handy service for you to try.
If you do sign up to try Braincast’s message system would you let me know if you enjoyed the service and if my post was helpful? Thanks.
