Everyone knows - texting
while driving is dangerous. Same goes for reading e-mail, updating your Facebook or Twitter status, and so on. Do yourself--and
your partner drivers--a big big favor and keep both hands on the wheel and both eyes on the road.
Easier said than done, correct? Really, no: Yet......If you use Dial2do, all these activities
are easily said and done. This amazing service lets you send text messages, listen to e-mail, add appointments to
your calendar, and plenty more, all using just your voice.
Start by signing up for a free accnt so you can get a feel for how Dial2Do works.
How it works: Add the special Dial2Do number to your speed-dial, then call it when you want to do something.
some say Google will buy this new company soon......)
For example, if you want to send a text message to Tommy, you simply wait for the prompt
and say, "Send a text message to Tommy." Wait for the next prompt, then say what you want to say.
When you're done, Dial2Do will transcribe your words into text and send them on their SMS way.
You can do the same thing with e-mail, though in addition
to creating messages, Dial2Do lets you listen to those you've received. It also works with a variety of third-party services:
You can dictate Facebook/Twitter updates, add appointments to your Google Calendar, send a note to Evernote, listen to local
weather, and other stuff....
occurs entirely hands-free. Besides safety, there's another good thing: If your phone lacks a keyboard, you'll find that dictating
text messages is a lot easier than poking 'em them out on a numeric keypad.
If you haven't tried Dial2Do, you're missing out. The previously free account limits you
to creating personal reminders (which are delivered to you via e-mail), but it comes with a 40-day trial of a Pro Cloud account.
That's what you'll need for all the really cool Cloud computing stuff....and....since this unassuming "writer" in
the cloud has a grandmother named Agnes Fitzgerald (Irish!) and since dial2do is an Irish company...we love 'em....
