Remind Adds Voice Messages

Update: Remind just introduced short codes, which means that EVERY teacher will only have one phone number, 81010.  So to sign up parents and students will text the class code to that number (for any teacher).  Consequently, all messages will come from that number too.  It's much easier than the current ten number system and they claim messages will be delivered faster too.

Remind is a great service (formerly called Remind101) that allows you to send one way text messages to a group (parents, students, colleagues) along with a document or photo too.  In today's cell phone, texting age it's the best way to keep a group informed.  One of the best features is the ability to schedule a text message in the future and have it delivered right when you want.

Today they introduced the ability on their iOS app to add voice messages.  You can recored a 15-second message to give a little personal flair to your communication.  I highly recommend this service.
