Google Acquires Timeful


Stressed out? Not enough time in the day?

Well, time to relax. Google has welcomed the app Timeful into its stable of productivity apps.

Timeful launched last year, focusing on mixing time management, task scheduling, calendar sync and prioritization roles to help the user accomplish their daily tasks without becoming overloaded.

Timeful has a very simple and easy to use interface. Just enter what you need to accomplish and Timeful syncs with your existing calendar, reserving time through the day to allow you to check the items off your to-do list. The downside, depending on your setup settings, is that there are a lot of alarms, notifications and reminders going off on your phone throughout the day. This may overload some users, possibly leading to new personal records being set for the longest phone toss distance. However, others may enjoy those frequent reminders.

In the official announcement, Google writes, “we’re excited about all the ways Timeful’s technology can be applied across products like Inbox, Calendar and beyond, so we can do more of the work for you and let you focus on being creative, having fun and spending time with the people you care about.”
