Text it before you forget it with KWIRY


How many times have you said to yourself "I've got to check out that movie/music/site" and made yourself a mental post-it note? I've tried writing a memo on my iPhone, only to forget to check it when I get home.

An S.F. start-up called KWIRY aims to solve this pesky problem by allowing people to use their cell phones to text personal reminders with full search results to an online account. "Text it before you forget it" -- their snappy motto -- works by simply sending a text message to 59479 (K-W-I-RY.) KWIRY works with Jott, so you can use your voice to send texts when you're in your car, or have a non-QWERTY phone.

Not only does it help you remember, but one click turns kwirys into search results from sites like Yahoo, Google, Wikipedia, Amazon and more. Users can also mark their 'favorite' search results so their top sites stay linked to each kwiry.

Adding social networking has made it even more attractive. People can create their own community at kwiry.com with photos, profiles, and comments or integrate kwiry into their existing social networks, such as Facebook.

KWIRY could potentially sort of solve the issue of having no encrypted or sync-able notes on the iPhone. You can send texts which will stay on your KWIRY page, and can be marked private so only you can see it.

What are you looking up today?
