A Purpose for Task.fm

 This program is to remind you and to list things that you have planned.

The Inner-Workings

 Task.fm uses a semantic technology in order to allow the user to actually verbally tell the program what event needs to be done and when it needs to be done. The only difficult issue is that the user must provide a specific time for the event (such as “7pm Tomorrow”).

 Use it to create sms, email or twitter reminders for yourself. Task.fm can understand your natural language so you don't need to enter dates and times manually. This is very convenient and is not as time consuming as some other ways of reminders might be such as datebooks, or other things.

The Compatability of Task.fm with Other Services

 Task.fm is compatible with various programs that many people use daily.  Reminders can be recieved via email, text message, twitter, voice call, Google Calendars, iCal, AIM, gTalk and MSN, with just the click of a button.  It is very convenient and the applications send you unlimited daily reminders about your schedule, what you have planned for the day, and what you need to do. The use of Task.fm with other programs makes life so much easier because it is already set up and you don't have to worry about missing any important events.



Unique Applications to Task.fm

 Having these 4 options of ways to recieve your reminders makes Task.fm convenient for anyone.  For the less tech savvy, they can receive voice calls.  Others spend most of their days at their computers, so the email option would work the best.  The variety in ways to receive your reminders makes Task.fm an option for everyone. 

 You can use phrases such as "next Tuesday at 6 p.m." or "tomorrow at 9 a.m." and Task.fm will know what you are referring to and schedule it into your calendar.

Another unique application on Task.fm would have to be the ability to send simple reminders to others. The ability may be useful in group situations to send messages to remind others of important information with just a click of a button. Being able to send to others also allows you to send things to others maybe even in a foreign country. With internet capability you can send them reminds through emails, ect.

Applying Task.fm to a Business Setting

Often times in a business training environment, the trainees are provided with a long and detailed training schedule that can be confusing, tedious, and difficult to remember. One way to help trainees remember all of the training events would be to add every task to a Task.fm schedule. The trainer could simply log into the Task.fm member site, add all of the trainees’ phone numbers and emails under their contact list, and then add all of the contacts to a group that has been previously specified. The trainer would then add an event, and under the “advanced” link below the text box the trainer would need to check the “send to group?” box and select their training group from the drop down box.   



 

Educational Potential of Task.fm

 Task.fm can be used easily for students in an educational advantage. It could be used as a task manager for a class, it could be applied as a syllabus and update students about upcoming homework exams and study sessions. It could also be a way to just manage your everyday schedule. Many students do not get homework done or do not study for exams because they forget and/or do not write it down. A teacher could make a group and update her students this way. This process would also be beneficial to students working on group projects for meetings and deadlines. Time management and task management would be beneficial to any student beacause it could help them stay on task and stay up to date with projects and deadlines.
