Free iPhone app - Tempo Smart Calendar

10 Feb 2014 07:38
Tempo Smart Calendar, a free iPhone app that works like a personal assistant, has launched in South Africa.
Free iPhone app - Tempo Smart Calendar
It looks like a calendar, but feels like an assistant. It applies artificial intelligence to data analysed from the calendar, email and contacts, in order to understand what's important and surfaces information and actions just like a personal assistant that knows what's coming next.

Common tasks include:
    • Read news about a company you're meeting with
    • Call, text or email anyone your calendar
    • Dial into conference calls without the passcode hassle
    • Get directions and estimated drive times
    • Review relevant emails and documents for each meeting
    • Show your contacts at a company
    • Send "running late" messages
    • Browse attendee LinkedIn profiles
This expansion to South Africa is accompanied by an all-new version of Tempo that includes People Insights, Twitter integration and Smart Alerts. Insights are rich contextual details around the people in your calendar - including recent emails, meeting history, mutual contacts, Facebook posts, tweets, LinkedIn information and more.

Other features include:
    • People insights - Get the lowdown before you meet and see mutual contacts, Facebook posts, Tweets, news, Crunchbase, AngelList and more.
    • Company backgrounders - Automatically prepared so you can see your personal network at the company and the latest news about the company.
    • Hassle-free conference calls - Get right into the call without dialing a passcode.
    • Quickly reach attendees - All the ways to contact attendees organized in every event and automatically kept up to date.
    • Location, directions and drive time - No need to look up an address, it's already in the event.
    • Pre-populated "Running Late" messages - Never leave them waiting and quickly send a text or email.
    • Related emails and documents - All of the emails and documents that pertain to a meeting are at your fingertips.
    • Keep on top of flights - Get your flight status, terminal, and gate in one tap.
These insights allow users to build rapport easily, whether it is in a first-time meeting, reconnecting after a long spell, or just hopping on the phone with a colleague. Smart Alerts allow users to take action right from an alert - like auto-dialling into a conference call, checking a flight status or navigating to a location - without even having to launch the app.

Users in South Africa can download free.
