    When Jott left Beta and some genius over there decided BB users should have to pay 3x the amount iBlown users do, for a service that was clearly inferior, I dropped them like a bricked, overhyped MacBook.

    After googling a bit, I finally found this other service, reQall, who had more function and none of the useless clunky hipness of Jott. Anyway, the service was excellent and the developer seemed a down-to-earth guy (albeit something of a memory GTD guru, and I mean that in a good way). So I says to him on the Facebook fan group: "Ay! Guy! Do that programming mojo for my BlackBerry." And today, I gets a friendly email containing my daily "jotts" with a tiny, unintrusive announcement (take a hint, Jott), that my prayers were answered! Here's the blurb, copied and pasted fresh from my BB:

    reQall for BlackBerry
    Free, beta version now available!

    reQall for BlackBerry offers all the regular reQall features you love, such as voice-to-text and timely reminders, PLUS it integrates with native BlackBerry functions such as email, memo pad and calendar. That means you can automatically create To-Dos and Notes from within these BlackBerry functions using a simple "reQall this" menu option.

    If you use a BlackBerry, download reQall for BlackBerry at http://www.reqall.com/blackberry. Then let us know what you think!

    -Awesome, man, that's what I think! Thank you reQall!

    Well, he is being upfront. It won't be free forever. In any case, I don't mind paying for good apps, so I'll give it a try.

    *francscrackin:: I uninstalled BBM so no idea. But I keep finding reQall menu in different apps even today, so I wouldn't be surprised.

    Trelawrence:: I feel the same. I haven't yet bought an app in half a year of having a curve, but immediately when I installed this, I was hooked and decided if any app was worth my support, it's this one.

    That said, it does say that there will always be a free version of reQall, and I do feel if it does start to charge, it won't be a ripoff.

    It does not really work. The transcribing is terrible. You say something and about a half hour later it is still telling you "still typing what you said". I thought at first it was a great program, but now it seems like a waste of time and space. I have removed it from my Curve, and I don't see it going back on, until I get a decent explanation from its creators, as to that glitch. Just be forewarned, its not all its cracked up to be...

    You can get this off of the new app store as well: berrystore.com from your blackberry will install a new appstore.

    I am very impressed by this app. I had my doubts at first (never had much luck with speech recognition). It seems to work incredibly well. I click "add by voice" and talk into the phone. All of my test messages have been transcribed to text perfectly. One minor complaint. It does take a few minutes before reqall successfully transcribes your voice message into text. But it isn't like I really need to recall what I just said a minute ago anyways. Haven't tried the "add by calling" option yet, but don't think I would have much use for it anyways.
