Ask Me Every is a free reminder and data collection service, which collects data by SMS. We have at least one specific piece of information that we need to keep track of on a daily basis. Many of us, for one reason or another, forget. Ask Me Every is the answer to this problem.
It’s a WebApp, No Download
Ask Me Every is a web based application. So there is nothing to download. Simply go to the website, register your question and cell phone number, and forget it. It’s that easy. It looks like you only get one question per cell phone number, per day, so you need to be sure the question you register is the one you really need to remember to keep track of. The website will text you with your password. You can then login to your account on the website and make any required changes, like a password you can remember.
So What’s the Big Deal?
Maybe you need to track daily expenses, mileage, or you want to see how one of these changes day to day or weekly. Every time the site texts you the question and you reply, it enters a data point in graphing software running on the website’s server. This way you can track changes in your answers on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
The Drawbacks of this reminder app
Most people that need or want to track a data point on a daily basis need to be able to print the graph for those data points on a certain basis, weekly or monthly. Unfortunately, that’s not possible from the web front end. This drawback is somewhat made up for by the fact that you can export the data points in a CSV file, which can be imported to an Excel spreadsheet or other software. You’re using Ask Me Every so that you don’t have to remember to track the information, so having to export that data to a spreadsheet somewhat defeats the purpose of the web app.
Overall Ask Me Every is a handy app, in case you need to a track of something on a daily basis and need a reminder.
