Using applescript, I have set up a process of dictating text on the iPhone in Jott, Jott transcribes that text, emails it to me, and an applescript in Mail sends it to the program "Things" and adds it to the top of my Today list.

Unfortunately Jott adds the words "[Jott to Today]" at the beginning of each post, which can make the item difficult to read on my iPhone.

Is there a way to strip the works "[Jott to Today]" from the beginning of each post before it passes it on? I understand how to alter an applescript, I just don't know how to remove text that will be passed on in an applescript.

Any help would be appreciated.
