Twitterfone – Update Twitter by Voice

Twitterfone is a great free service that allows you to dial a national phone number, leave a message and within a few minutes this appears as an update on your twitter account with a weblink back to an MP3 of the voice recording you left.

Great fun and very impressive

Voice to Email – Spinvox

I have recently came across a great free service called Spinvox.

What Spinvox allows you to do, is dial a phone number and you are then prompted to leave a message. This voice message is then converted into text and can then be either emailed to you, update your blog, or can be sent as a text message and email to your friends.

After testing this I have found that as long as you speak at a normal sort of speed and speak clearly the service works very well.

This service is free to use. You just pay for the cost of dialling the access number. The main one I have used is the voice to email and this is a standard UK national number so included in the free minutes on my mobile call package.

You can find out details on Spinvox here


Spinvox also offer a pay service for voicemail.
When this is activated any voicemails you receive are converted into text and then emailed to you.

You can find out details on the voicemail options here


To find out in Spinvox is available in your country click here


If you use this service, drop me a line to let me know how you get on.

Sprite Backup £/€/$

If you are using a Windows Mobile device I would say this is an essential application that you need.

In the past I have to admit, I have been in a situation where I have let the battery on my windows mobile device run out, and then had to reinstall everything again. Through this I found a great little program called Sprite Backup.

It allows you to take a full backup of your windows mobile device, and store the backup as an executable file on your mobile device storage card. This means, that if for any reason your Windows Mobile device is wiped, you can get it back by running the backup you made using Sprite Backup.

Pricing is as follows
