Overview

+ What is 24me?

24me is a smart and automatic calendar and a to-do list app that acts as a personal assistant at your fingertips. Making life more organized and coordinated, 24me automatically reminds you about your important events and errands in one place in order to ensure your days are less stressful and your important tasks are never forgotten.

+ What is 24me used for?

24me's main usage is to make life easier by automating daily tasks, events and meetings, putting them in one place, and sending automatic reminders for them. By connecting Social networks, service providers, financial institutions and other parts of daily life, 24me gives you an all-inclusive mobile platform where all of your important information can be stored, organized, and integrated into daily life.

Important things to know

+ Main elements of 24me
  1. Top Bar - used for navigating between the main screens of 24me. These are the buttons on the Top Bar:
    > Add (+) - opens the add new task/event screen
    > Calendar - opens the calendar screen
    > Tasks - opens the tasks screen
    > Notifications - opens the notification center
    > More - opens another bar of buttons where you can open the My Links and the Settings screens
  2. Calendar screen - displays your tasks, events and meetings on a calendar view. This view has three main sections:
    > Dates bar - can be scrolled left/right and also pulled down to reveal the dates organized by months.
    > All-Day section - where events and tasks without a specific time during the day are listed.
    > Time grid section where events and tasks with specific time during the day are listed.
  3. Task View - the task view lists all your tasks under 4 groups based on their scheduled time. Adding a priority level, label, and notes can also enhance these tasks.
  4. My Links - This screen is accessible by tapping on the More button on the top bar. It allows to link Social Networks, Financials accounts, Service Providers, TaskRabbit (in the US only) and local apps such as Calendar, Contacts and Reminders to 24me.
  5. Settings - Also accessible by tapping on the More button on the top bar, this screen provides an array of options for the user to choose from, including logging out of 24me, and turning off the welcome animation.
  6. Notification center - This is where reminders are displayed, along with tasks that are shared with you from other people and meeting invitations.
+ Adding tasks

To add a task or a meeting tap on the '+' button on the top of the screen. You can then tap on one of the shortcut buttons, use the speech-to-text or add task via camera, or simply start typing yourself. During the add new task process, you can use the attribute buttons below the text box to mark it as priority, set location time, share it, label it, or provide notes.

The shortcut bar gives you the ability to add a meeting with a contact name or a task with an action button [call, text, email, errand (if TaskRabbit is linked) and gift (in the U.S.)]. This task automatically links to the contact and allows to use just one tap to complete it.

Tasks are backed up on the 24me server so all account information is accessible from any device you log in with.

+ Linking your life

24me can link to parts of your real life to automatically help you manage your to-dos and errands and populate your task list.

Link your Social networks, financials, providers and local apps on your device to allow 24me to automatically alert you about bill alerts, friends' special events, and all other tasks associated with your links.

Errands (US only) allows you to outsource your tasks to somebody else through TaskRabbit.

+ Marking a Task as Completed and Removing Tasks and Events

Swipe across a completed task to mark it as completed. Swipe again to un-complete it. Once a task is completed, click on the trashcan to the right to delete it from the main screen. Another way to complete or delete a task is to tap on the task and click the complete or delete buttons above it.

To remove an event, swipe on it and then tap on the trashcan button on its right side. Tapping on an event also reveals a delete button.

In the Settings menu, there is an option to view all of the previously removed tasks. Once on this screen, there is the option to remove all of them from the app completely. Also, swiping a task from this list brings them back to the to do list.

+ Task/Event Time

When adding an event or a task, you can set a date and time for when they are due. You will automatically be reminded at that time. Once a reminder pops, it is available in the notification center where you can snooze the reminder to a later time. The date and time of the task/event is always changeable by tapping on them and going to the Time screen.
