Like the idea, but it fails on the Facebook dependency. Thanks, but no thanks.
Fair enough. The app is actually fairly platform-agnostic, so it shouldn’t be too hard to support other mediums. Which platforms would you be willing to try Jarvis on?
I would like to see it use xmpp, more open that way.
The kids all use Slack. IRC might be a better transport for this as well, for us people on open chat networks, as it’s a simpler protocol to implement and from my experience, in use more often, (I bemoan the lack of normal-people accessible XMPP, but it’s a combo of the protocol being a PITA, the UX being a PITA, and infrastructure being a PITA. Why wouldn’t they go to a walled garden if the alternative is that?)
Cool! Any way to clear or modify reminders once you’ve set them?
Thanks! Things are kind of on fire right now. I literally just added the ability to clear all reminders by typing ‘delete all reminders’.
Nice idea! I’ve started using Slack’s /remind feature in a similar way to help segment my work day into bite-sized, semi-pre-determined chunks. A Messenger chat bot is an interesting way to bring this functionality to everyone, inside an app that a lot of people use already. I personally don’t really need the interaction of a chat bot, but that’s just where my reminders live for now.
I’ve been thinking about making something that fills my niche a little more. Less a task list and more a way to add some light structure to the day to make sure that I’m carving out time for everything I need to. Maybe add in some random reminders throughout the day to keep me focused on the important and big picture things as well. I’ll write a blog post on my system when I have it more nailed down.
Exciting! I have been playing with the same idea lately and finally got to start implement it this morning. You beat me to it! ;-)
The reminders are 98% of my Google Now use, and in the past year that feature has sucked to the point of being useless.
Can’t believe I haven’t thought of this elegant solution :) nicely done! I will happily use this.
If your code is open source I’d enjoy porting it to a Telegram bot. I can also see a Slack bot being useful.
