I do not know about you, but I usually think of important things I need to remember to do when I am out taking a walk, or on the train, or basically anywhere that it is really inconvenient to make a note or leap into action.

That is why is a big hit with me. ReQall is the site that offers to be your constant companion and memory jogger, so you need never forget anything ever again.

Once you have registered, click the link to settings at the top to set up the various sections, including your notification preferences about how and when you want to receive reminders.

The idea is you input anything you want to be reminded about like birthdays, shopping lists, deadlines for work etc. The website's clever software recognises certain keywords, such as "buy" and automatically adds the reminder to the right section, like the shopping list.

You can share your ReQall database with other users, giving you the chance to gently remind your other half to pick up milk on the way home from work without seeming like you are nagging.

But it is for users in the UK, US and Canada that the site really comes into its own. Here you are offered toll free numbers to call so you can add notes while you are out and about, and they are converted to text and stored in your database as well as sent back to you by text.

You can add up to five telephone numbers linked to your account and there is even the option to put in a pin number if you need to use another number like a telephone box.
