SERVICE: Send yourself SMS reminders with kwiry

Some days ago, a new start-up informed me about a new service which opened the doors today: kwiry (yup, like query), which allows you to send yourself SMS text messages to remember things online. kwiry, a San Francisco-based startup, opened the door of its mobile/web service this morning which lets you use your cell phone to text personal reminders to your online account and E-Mail. People often watch TV, read a magazine, talk to friends or see a billboard and think, 'I should check that out' or 'I should E-Mail that to a friend.' kwiry gives you a way to remember those things easily, with the thing you always have with you - your mobile phone.

Anyone (in the U.S.) can use the service simply by sending a text message to 59479 (K-W-I-RY). Additionally, registered users have their kwirys (text messages) stored for them at The service quickly integrates with other sites like Facebook, iGoogle and myYahoo.

"We built kwiry to help people remember things," says Ron Feldman, CEO of kwiry, "but it does more than just store lists. People can easily view search results for their kwirys from many different websites and share their favorite results with friends."

Once people are online, one click turns kwirys into search results from sites like Yahoo, Google, Wikipedia, Amazon and more. kwiry also lets users mark their 'favorite' search results so the best sites stay linked to each kwiry. People can create their own community at with photos, profiles, and comments or integrate kwiry into their existing social networks.

'Text it before you forget it' by simply sending a text message to 59479 (K-W-I-RY) with something you want to remember. There's no need to install new software, learn new technologies, or pay any additional fees.

With billions of text messages being sent every month text messaging is obviously a feature people are comfortable using but very few companies have harnessed it. kwiry partners with advertisers and media companies to provide a unique viral platform to drive offline audiences online.

The only drawback is, that kwiry works with U.S. carriers only - international users are (yet) out of luck.

Cheers ~ Arne
