Kwiry – text reminders with a little extra smart sauce


Kwiry is a new SMS text reminder service which combines mobile phone smarts with the power of web search. The basic premise is for you to send yourself an SMS message as a reminder of something when you’re out and about. At which point the service will store the reminder and email you to jog your memory when you return to base. So far so hum-drum. The interesting bit is the connection to a set of tabbed information sources, to help you locate what you want or additional information at the click of a mouse button.


Once this information is collated you can choose to save or share it, which sounds as if it could be useful if you’re trying to say, organise a meal out with friends and you’re trying to find a decent local cafe.

The interface is nice and simple and the functionality is definitely interesting. I’m not sure just how much value the additional tabbed info offers over a simple reminder service like Jott, but hey, it’s free right? Big downside, no international support.

 kwiry is a free service that turns text messages into reminders you retrieve online. When you text a reminder (a product to buy, movie trailer to watch, bill to pay, etc.) to 59479 (kwiry) we store it on our website. The next time you’re online you can log in to to manage your reminders, see search results for each one, and easily share with friends. See it. Text it. Get it.

  • Hi Nigel,

    Thanks for writing about kwiry and reviewing it so thouroughly! We’re excited at all the fun things people are doing with kwiry. In fact we’ve been running a weekly promotion where we pick a random kwiry about a book, movie or music and buy that for the lucky kwiry user. Check out for more details.

    As for international support, while we don’t have international shortcodes just yet, we have many international users using our e-mail input (sending to [email protected]) or our Twitter or Jott integrations.

    Happy to answer any/all questions from you or your readers! (ronf AT kwiry DOT com)
