Love this idea. Just added my phone number. @davidchouinard how do I retrieve these recordings later? Are you listening to my responses? πŸ˜›

@rrhoover thanks! Let me know how your first call goes. πŸ’ͺ On the website (what callfrank.org looks like after some use: http://imgur.com/N7gKkoz). Been working on a feature that periodically brings to light back old recordings, but really, nearly all the value comes from capturing. Nope. Ain't nobody got time for that.

@davidchouinard I disagree that all the value comes from capturing, would love access to the journals for reflection (preferably in text). Maybe an idea for a future up sell? I'd definitely pay to have a journal that was super easy to keep/re-read. Also, I ramble, I might like >60sec options. πŸ˜„ Great idea!

@tylerwillis Yes, possibly. Frank can periodically text you old recordings (transcribed) β€” that functionality is currently disabled, I didn't find myself using it much. How would you see yourself looking back on the journal?

@davidchouinard personally, I'd like to look back periodically (1x/week?) and get a feel for my week. I'd also love a type of archive (maybe a searchable history of transcripts?). The last part may be overkill - I'm a bit of a digital hoarder - but I'd use it.

@tylerwillis The archive is definitely in the works: it's currently just a list on callfrank.org, but eventually would have search tools, filters, etc. Would you like a weekly newsletter summarizing that week? I really enjoy listening to older recordings: maybe a "this week last year" email?

Be cool if this ultimately packaged the audio journals in book form if ordered.

Love the concept but Is there any way I can use this from a UK number?

I've been using Frank for a few months now, during its early beta, and can't speak more highly of it as an addition to my daily routine. Every night at 10 PM I get a call to recount the day's events. The quickest and easiest way of journaling I've encountered. Also, just as a note about David, he's a relentless maker and I'm excited to see how this product evolves.

this is brilliant. i fear we forget 90% of our lives. what an awesome tool for cataloging even the most basic days. agree with @paultomkinson here too. would be awesome to somehow be able to package this into a physical (or digital) product with the ability to add pictures/edit text perhaps? essentially it would take most of the hardwork out of journaling. great work.
