reQall (c-eniconˈriːkɔːl) is a voice-enabled personal productivity software program that integrates phone, email, text messaging and IM into a mobile memory aid. The software is available as a web-based application or as a download for the Apple iPhone, Android_(operating_system) or the RIM BlackBerry smartphone. It is available in free and paid versions.

reQall is based on memory research done by Sunil Vemuri at the MIT Media Lab in the early 2000s. Vemuri’s research focused on how mobile technology could be used to help people capture their daily experiences and then efficiently catalog that information so that it could be retrieved and used at a later time. The first version of the reQall application became available in January, 2007, when it was launched at the DEMO 07 conference and won a DEMOgod award.

In March 2009, the company introduced a new version of reQall that includes a patent-pending “Memory Jogger” that analyzes various aspects of the user’s current situation (time, location and upcoming calendar events) to provide a dynamically updated display of relevant to-dos and notes. The Memory Jogger proactively provides contextually-relevant reminders rather than relying on the user to seek information by accessing a static to-do list or calendar.
