 John Cody's Vnotes


If you agree that it is tedious task to type in words using your Smartphone's keypad, then you will enjoy using Vnotes. Vnotes doesn't slow you down by requiring you to type in everything, you can enter and work with more information in less time...

For example, you could create a voice note and label it "Grocery List", and with one click record yourself saying "Buy a dozen eggs". Then, a few days later you notice you are low on paper towels. All you need to do is hi-light the existing "Grocery List" note, select Append Recording, and just speak "Get Paper Towels". You can repeat this simple process as often as needed. Then, when you are at the grocery store, you just simply press Play and hear all the items you need to purchase. Using Vnotes this way is especially helpful for stores that you don't visit every week, such as Home Depot, where you might forget you needed something a month ago. How much easier can it get then this? No more fumbling with keys to spell out words, and no squinting and scrolling of the display to read the entire list ;)

Another common use of Vnotes is to setup quick alerts to remind you of something, such as putting more money in a parking meter. In this example, all you need to do is create a new record and say "Put more money in Parking meter", then select Create Reminder, and Time From Now...and a time such as One Hour. Then, one hour later, your Smartphone will sound an alarm to remind you about the meter running out. You can even configure the reminder to play the actual voice note itself instead of the standard alert tone when the alert is triggered.

Vnotes can also be used as an advanced, yet easy to use portable Dictation device. No longer will you have to carry around two devices, when your Smartphone can do the job of both! One helpful feature of Vnotes is that it allows you to create separate folders to store related notes in. Thus, you could create a folder named "Dictations" and store all of your dictations in it. Then, at any time you can select a voice note and email it to your assistant or transcription service with just a few clicks of a button.

One feature that I personally use a lot is the Email Myself Voice Note. Often, when I am on the road and think of something I need to do back at the office, I will create a voice note and record the task. But then I would forget to play the voice notes on my phone when I get back to the office. However, using this feature, I can simply email an important voice note to myself, so it will be delivered to my desktop PC's Inbox as a reminder when I sync-up with my Smartphone. No Brainer.

As you can see, the uses for Vnotes are limited only by your imagination...

  • Random Thoughts - Save your thoughts right when you are thinking them - even while driving your car!
