The simplicity here is wonderful. If it works as well as the examples on the homepage then I think you're onto something. I know I often find myself struggling to remember things these days, and with Google having replaced a large percentage of our memory needs, I imagine others are the same. So for me, this product clearly has a good use case and seems like a super slick experience, but I'd still rather invest in my memory again, otherwise I fear what it'll be like by the time I'm 70! Great work with this @jsngr @shivkanthb 🙌

@fredrivett @jsngr @shivkanthb Just 'remembered 😏', nah, thought of a great use case for this! When going to catch the train, what do I need to remember? Ticket, Railcard, Keys, Wallet (etc) Command: Train Journey Response: Don't forget your ticket, railcard, keys and wallet Next level could link physical e.g. 'just tracked that you left your keys in the fridge again'.

@bentossell @jsngr @shivkanthb Yeah auto setup quick commands like that that know what you'll need to take with you would be cool. If you could then customise them like 'flights' returns medical details and any other custom bits. I could see the benefit here.

@fredrivett @jsngr @shivkanthb yeah and jabs I have no idea what I've had haha

This looks awesome! Any more info on how you built it from a technical point of view? Plans to expand to other platforms? (Telegram, Messenger, etc.) Sending an SMS from a +44 to a +1 number gets pretty expensive 😁 If it works as well as you claim, this could really take off. Nice one!
Jordan SingerMaker@jsngr · I build my ideas.
@sprusr Thanks! It's built on Ruby on Rails, uses Twilio for text messaging, Wit.ai for natural language processing, and a handful of other algorithms like Jaro-Winkler distance and overlap coefficient to determine string similarity to find the best key-value match. Plans are certainly to expand into other messaging platforms, just wanted to get the universal one out of the way :)

@jsngr great! 🌟

Second @sprusr would be great to see this on one of the messenger platforms, I vote Telegram
@jsngr @sprusr Does this mean that the quality of service you can provide is limited by the natural language processing capabilities of Wit.ai?

As Jordan mentioned, Wonder helps you recollect things. Its super simple to use. I use it everyday for things like my account passwords, gate codes, family addresses, birthdays and more. Coming soon on Messenger, Slack and Alexa :) Try it! Let us know what you think :)
Marina Tassi@marinaaat · Product Management Intern
I'm loving this, but after using it, I'm left wondering if there is a way to forget things that the bot either incorrectly remembered or is no longer true. Either way great idea that I'll definitely be using.
Jordan SingerMaker@jsngr · I build my ideas.
@marinaaat We'll be adding a web dashboard soon so you can edit your past key-values. Thanks!

This is a really nice idea! Agreed with everyone else that a messenger bot would be good 👍 I've only told Wonder what my favourite bot is, but every time I ask it any other question, it responds with my phone number? I feel like it should send a "sorry I don't know this information yet" message

@marsh931 Thank you for the feedback. We will work on the fix asap.
