    Smart Personal Assistant Applications – Tempo

    Helping You Get Your Act Together

    I’m on a quest to find the best personal assistant applications to help me stay organized. My last article in this series was on EasilyDo and talked about the design elements that help you get things done. This article is going to talk about designing an application that helps you with meetings. My first impression with these types of applications is that they are in their infancy and they are just scratching the surface of usability. Also, why is it that all these apps want to help you let others know you are running late?

    The application we are reviewing is called Tempo; you can find it on the iTunes App store and it is free so that’s good. I’m evaluating v1.0.7 of the application in this article. It is called a Smart Calendar and is developed by SRI, the same company that created Siri –the smart assistant integrated into iOS, so there is a bit of smarts behind this thing.

    As I was getting things set up, I ran into some quick limitations – like only connecting to three email accounts (as I look through the release notes, I see that the application was just recently updated to allow three accounts.) I also did not see any Twitter connectivity. (I’m sure that Twitter could be used to let the world know that I’m running late as well…)

    It did, however, have some very nice helper overlays that display on the first run and point out key features and functionality within the application. The first overlay can be found on the main screen and then later on an actual event detail. These are such a nice touch to be able to illustrate the different things that the application can do. It would be nice to have a way to pull them back up later after I have been using the normal process flow and I want to experiment with some additional features. But, I’m a pusher of buttons just to see what happens, so I usually find things anyway.
