reQall has released the first memory aid created specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch. reQall is based on research into memory protheses from MIT's Media Lab, and allows users to add reminders simply by speaking things. Voice reminders are then instantly converted into text and delivered back to users at the appropriate time. reQall can remind users in various ways, such as in a text message ,instant message, email or calendar alerts. reQall has been built to recognize certain keywords so that it knows what to do with different messages. If a user says "buy" reQall will take that message and add it to a shopping list, if a date is said, reQall adds the date right into the calendar. reQall also lets users take pictures and store them for remembering things that may be hard to describe.
