Cadie, your Organizational Savior
My Cadie is an Android or iOs artificial intelligence and organizer app which allows users to store and share documents or images with others. There is also a chat facility for use with buddies or other users as well as a scheduling option for events and reminders. The best thing is that all of this organizational power is in one place so users only need one app, not a chat app, a diary, and a cloud linkup. It is ideal for social users who have active lives but also like sharing things. Add friends and family to check availability for a meeting, project or meal, or ask advice generally from the chat users for a wider feedback. Or just use the app as a way to organize yourself on the go, when you need access to documents as you travel, at work and at home.
The app links with Dropbox to allow easy backup, storage and sharing of documents in the cloud and synching across devices. Everything is displayed in an easy to follow matrix style. Indexing is through tags, color coding or time saved and there is a choice of basic or advanced options which also permits notes to be linked to other parts of the app. Documents can be shared as pdfs or via email , making it quick and easy to send reminders with attached extra details. Talking of extra details, users can search the web for further material related to a note or document, then attach anything found to the original item so all the relevant information is accessible together when called up. There is even a voice search feature called ListenIn which picks up on what users are discussing then automatically searches the web for further data.
The chat area of the app allows users to share documents and chats privately with buddies or ask for help, advice or input from the wider userbase. There are recommendations and chat systems for buddies too, just to reinforce the social side of this versatile and useful app. The designers reckon that the contextual clues used to tag and organize any items saved to the cloud are more organic than standard ways humans generally use to recall information, but the app still offers clues just in case our brains really do let us down. Plus, the ability to tag items by color adds a new dimension to saved items. Documents or images could be tagged by color according to sender, hobby, job, subject, in the same way that some people use folders in inboxes.
The one page website for the app has basic information in a downward scroller fashion and there are many reviews and more details on the app pages on the Apple store and Google Play store. For someone who is struggling to stay in the loop and organized across work and family life, an app like this would be ideal. I can see my boss using this to stay in touch with her family while still being present in meetings where her contribution is required. I may also consider using it to balance work and life, as my husband has a habit of involving me in things that I forget to add to my paper diary when he tells me about them.
For the socially involved, MyCadie is the ideal app to keep on top of everything your work and life expect you to manage, without having to hire a PA to manage your diary for you.
