Mynd Calendar's sophisticated algorithms identify the places that users drive within the content of their calendar events and accurately predicts, in advance, how much buffer time should be scheduled between meetings, given the typical traffic at that time of day.  As appointments draw near, Mynd Calendar tells users when to leave for meetings, based on current traffic conditions and launches the user's preferred navigation app to get them from point A to B on time.  It also:

  • Notifies users when they're running late and enables them to quickly email, call or text the people who need to know from the calendar.
  • Automatically  identifies conference call numbers and codes and facilitates one-click dial-in.
  • Discovers the people listed in calendar events and displays their LinkedInprofile information.
  • Pulls in relevant  Evernote notes into the calendar, making meeting preparation a breeze.
  • Delivers weather forecasts for current and anticipated locations.
