Calendars are boring. They should just work. Well Mynd has decided that they should work for you! What they have created is actually very cool. I have been using it for a short while and have decided it is a keeper – and I think you will like it too! Details from Lifehacker:
Mynd Makes Sure You’re On-Time and Ready for Anything On Your Calendar
iOS: Most calendars just show you upcoming appointments, but Mynd gives you a complete picture of your day, alerts you when you should leave for an appointment, shows you who’ll be there and how to get in touch with them, and can even pull in Evernote notes for the meeting and dial into conference calls for you.
The video above does a good job of walking through Mynd’s biggest features. We’re seeing more apps go out of their way to get traffic and travel information for your meetings and appointments so you’re never late getting there, but Mynd takes it a step further. It’ll alert you so you’re never late, but it also puts transit time on your calendar so you don’t book over when you should be driving or on the train. Similarly, it shows you who’ll you be in that meeting with and pulls up their LinkedIn profile or contact card on your phone so you can call, email, or text them to let them know you’re on your way.
Mynd also learns your favorite locations, like home and work, and can also learn new locations by keyword. Enter “Gym” enough times and Mynd will figure out where the Gym is based on previous appointments and you’ll never need to enter the address again. The app can also dial into conference calls for you, enter conference codes right from your calendar, and show you any Evernote notes, clippings, or documents you need for any meeting you have on your calendar. Even when you’re not using it, Mynd’s “dashboard” shows you upcoming appointments, people to get in touch with, weather, upcoming events and locations, and more all in one nicely tiled view.
