Submission + - What *Should* You Be Doing? - new mobile service (

frankmanowar writes: "Kind of an inversion on the Twitter phenom, PingMe is a social app that asks "what should you be doing?" It let's you create reminders (called Pings) to be sent to your e-mail account or mobile device, and it allows you to create or update your pings from your mobile device via text messages. The idea is to help you keep up on what you ought to be doing, a la Getting Things Done. By setting up contacts, you can use pings to coordinate tasks and events with your friends, family, or colleagues."
