    Next Generation of Personal Assistant Applications


    I have spent a lot of time thinking about how to get things organized, prioritized, and then ultimately completed. In fact, if I would have just done the tasks instead of discussing and thinking about them, they would probably be done already. We procrastinators will get around to uniting and solving these problems someday…. Anyway, I've been using this application called EasilyDo for a few weeks now and I have come to like it, or should I say, I have come to like the idea of it and I am wanting more.

    EasilyDo Website ( say's the following about its application:

    This application gets you the right information and gets things done. It tells you the traffic for your daily commute, notifies you when to leave, warns you of bad weather, files receipts, organizes contacts, tracks packages, and even helps you celebrate birthdays. Information automatically appears when you need it - no more digging through multiple apps!

    1. Never Miss Life's Important Moments
      1. Get birthday reminders
      2. Event Invites
      3. Important Updates shared by your friends, send your wishes, e-gifts, RSVPs, congratulations and support - be there for your friends
    2. Stay Organized with Zero Effort
      1. Merge duplicates in your address book
      2. add contact from recent emails
      3. File receipts into an email folder automatically - taking care of the things that you always mean to get to and don't.
    3. Easily Navigate Your Day
      1. Get 'time to leave' alerts and directions to your home, work or next appointment; auto-dial into calls; text to say you're on the way or running late - what you need when you need it.

    Overview: The application finds important tasks and things you care about at just the right time and offers to get things done on the spot. Social media is important to the growth of "context-aware computing" because of how connected we all are with our devices and online friends. Because of this interconnectedness, we have information and details about our daily lives that are trapped in different places, such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, etc. Context-aware computing is all about finding the right information at the right time, so with our heavy reliance on social networks and seeing/sharing things as they happen, these two concepts have a natural connection.

    My Thoughts:This has become one of those applications that I am checking on a regular basis now. It gives weather updates, reminds me about things on my calendar. It did a good job of tracking a couple of packages in the mail and indicating that they shipped, were out for delivery and that they were delivered. It provided, "Happy Birthday" reminders for a few people and it allowed scheduling these message a few days in advance. It then posted them on their Facebook timeline on their birthday, so that is nice. It prompts 3 minutes before a meeting to remind you to attend or dial in, and it has offered to clean up a couple of duplicate contacts that are in my address book, (ok, really it has been the same duplicate contacts a few times…) Overall, it is interacting with me via push notifications and through its own UI and that is good. Now they need to continue to add more useful interactions.
