AT&T tips Jawbone Up coming soon

Jawbone THOUGHTS puts PTT on iPhone

Jawbone THOUGHTS puts PTT on iPhone

Jawbone has outed a new iPhone app for use with its ICON Bluetooth headset, which allows for one-minute audio messages - complete with optional voice-to-text transcription - to be sent from the Apple smartphone. Jawbone THOUGHTS is a free download from the App Store, and in fact you don't need to have an ICON in order to use it; instead, you can record messages using the iPhone's own microphone.

If recipients have the app themselves, then the THOUGHTS message pops up in there; if not - say, if they're not using an iOS device - then they get a link to it via text or email. You can send messages to one or multiple recipients, a little like group PTT.
