Skydeck is a new service that integrates with your cell phone to give you a number of features. It syncs with your textmessages, transcribes your voicemail and lets you call people from your computer using your cell phone as your caller id number. You can then do stuff like search through all of your voice and text messages just like you’d search through your email. Plans are $10 to $30 and you have to have a Blackberry or Android phone. If you place a lot of outgoing phone calls, the ability to make them from your computer may make the service pay for itself.
On of my favorite Skydeck features is the way it handles new phone numbers. When you dial a number on your phone, Skydeck will look the number up in several directories and if it finds a match it will add it to your address book. It works the same way when someone calls you from a number that isn’t in you address book.
