Support, Development and Maintenance
I had an idea.. Dunno if this is in development already or not. or if it was pitched already.

I figure I will risk flames and just post this..

I would like to see a way to send journal entries from cell phone text messaging.

Obviously, this will require 2 major things.

1: security setup
2: gateway to post to.

Security could be done by simply sending a random auth code to the cell phone and then entering that code once recieved.

As for a gateway, a special email address could be created that will post the message, using default journal settings.

On the security side of that, I would suggest a random code generator create a 8 to 10 digit alpha-numeric email addy unique to the user.

Obviously, this type of service would be for paying customers. Just a thought, cuz I know when I am out there are certain things I would post.. "IF I ONLY HAD A WAY!!" :)

Hi, I'm on Vodafone in UK, and I don't see this network on the list of options available for the text messaging feature. Is it under another name, or has it not been added yet? If it hasn't, the character limit is 160 :)

:D Glad to help out in your developments if I can!
