Product Details



Product Features

  • Manage all your communication and tasks from one location
  • Take and make calls, check voicemail, review your e-mail, text others, and more
  • Use and monitor any Google apps (Calendar, Reader, etc.), POP/IMAP accounts, Facebook, Twitter, and even more
  • Use in any of 3 modes: Lock screen, Welcome screen, or widget
  • Choose from a wide array of differently sized full or partial widgets

Product Description

Executive Assistant (EA) provides an all-in-one interface for quickly reviewing your:

+ Email: any combination of GMail, Google Apps, or POP/IMAP accounts. Exchange too if you use a supported email client. See below for a list of supported clients.
+ Text messages: both native and Google Voice, including pop-up and reply options
+ Missed calls: return calls directly from the app
+ Calendar events (including Exchange & Facebook if supported by your phone)
+ Tasks: Astrid, DGT GTD (w/Pure Widget plugin), Google Tasks Organizer (lite & pro), Got To Do, GTasks by Dato, ToDo Task Manager (lite or pro), or TouchDown
+ Feedly RSS feeds
+ Twitter timeline
+ Facebook news

Use in any of 3 modes:
+ Lock Screen: Use as a lock screen replacement to preview all of your stuff without going thru the hassle of unlocking the phone. You choose which info is safe to show on the lock screen.

+ Welcome Screen: Instant-on immediately after unlocking the phone. Don't pattern lock your phone? Give this mode a try for instant access to all your stuff.

+ Home Screen Widget: 'always on' interface wherever you want it. Use a full-widget that includes a preview area, or a single-row, icons-only widget that simply shows the app icons with counts. Many sizes to choose from. Optionally use a Sense-like or Glass theme for the full-widget.

Full-widgets are scrollable for Android 3.0 & later, and for any launcher that supports version 2 of the scrollable widgets extension, such as: ADW, Launcher+, Go and Zeam (but not Launcher Pro since it uses version 1).

In every mode: launch apps, return missed calls, dial voicemail (or optionally choose to launch Google Voice, Visual Voicemail or any other voicemail app).

Reply to SMS messages directly from the Welcome Screen or Lock Screen, without unlocking (if you enable this option).

Host your favorite widgets & shortcuts on lock or welcome screen.

The background image will be the same as your home screen wallpaper (including live wallpapers). Customize the color and transparency of the text displays in all modes. Optionally select custom icons for the tabs.

Supported POP/IMAP clients: Enhanced Email, K9 and Kaiten Mail

You don’t need to use a supported client to access POP/IMAP accounts in EA, however, if you do, then EA can access your messages directly from the on-device database, without having to fetch them over your data connection. Also, tapping a message in EA will open it in the corresponding app.

If you don’t want to use one of the supported email clients, then you can use EA’s free POP/IMAP add-on to fetch your messages from your mail server (EA will install it for you if you decide to use it).

Supported Exchange clients: TouchDown by NitroDesk and Enhanced Email by Quantum Solutions

If you want to preview Exchange email in EA, your best options are to use either TouchDown or Enhanced Email. TouchDown is a dedicated Exchange app that gives you access to your corporate email, calendar and tasks. Enhanced Email is a general email client that supports Exchange accounts in addition to POP/IMAP accounts. Some people are also able to access their Exchange accounts using K9 or Kaiten. Some Exchange servers also allow access via IMAP.

Note that we would also love to support the stock EMail & GMail apps but unfortunately, Google does not currently allow 3rd party apps to access those databases.

GMAIL USERS:
Even without direct access to the GMail app’s data, you still have two good options for accessing your gmail & Google Apps accounts in EA:

1. enable IMAP for your account (from GMail on the web, see Settings/Mail settings/Forwarding & POP/IMAP), then access your account using one of the supported POP/IMAP clients, or the POP/IMAP add-on.

or,

2. select the "Get from Google" option when setting up your account in EA and EA will fetch your gmail preview from Google’s servers.

Everyone keeps saying how this app is redundant, and how it performs, functionally, the way that several other apps on Android do, and that may be true. But what I'm liking about it, is that it is a one stop shop for all my update needs. I like having widgets on my homescreen, as I often don't have time to launch apps to get updates. But having a separate widget for Twitter, Facebook, Google Reader, and my Calender takes up a lot of screen space, that frankly, I'd like to use for other things. This app let's me access/see the feeds for all of those apps in one spot. (As well as providing at-a-glance info on missed calls, emails, and SMS. Which is quite handy if, like me, you often just need to be able to glance at your phone to see what you have missed, and don't have time to flick between apps and/or widgets.) I didn't have to install any additional apps to get it to work right either, like some, which was a bonus.

That said, I never would have downloaded this app, if it wasn't being offered for free. As while all the features it offers are nice, they aren't exactly necessary. At most, I could imagine paying $2 for this app, not the current list price of $6.99.

For those complaining about it showing your private info on a lock screen, well, that's an option for a reason. No one says that you have to turn it on.

Coming from having a BlackBerry prior to my Samsung Mesmerize, I was used to having appointments and other information on my home screen. When looking for widgets to display the same type of information on my SGS, I came across Executive Assistant and have used the free version before getting the full version. I did add the Task addon so it would work with Dato gTasks.

As a home screen widget, it does a great job. It is very configurable. I only wanted appointments and tasks displayed, without additional tabs below, so that is how I have it set up. It would be just as easy to have it display the call log or emails. What I was looking for was a clean looking today screen widget that was customizable. Executive Assistant fit my needs.

I usually don't review apps on the Amazon market, even the ones I get for free like this one, but just want to say that this app works much better than the free (ad) version. I had tried that version several times before and it was slow and buggy. this one works much more quickly and is actually pretty useful. thanks Amazon for a good free productivity app.

It is nice to have everything in place. Basically, it tells me what I have missed since the last time I've turned on my phone (how many Tweets, how many missed calls, how many SMS message). It is easy to use and my biggest fear of it being just too much in my face to actually enjoy it did not come to fruition. It is pretty much in your face as much as you ask it to be.

I love how you can basically piecemeal the app together, utilizing only the things you want it to. It isn't an annoying "all or nothing" app but, like a personal assistant, asks, "What do you want help with?" and does what it is told.

Now if I can get an add-on that will pick up my dry cleaning, then I'll be REALLY impressed.

best things about this app:
* lock screen widget - lets you see calendar, sms, missed calls, email snips w/o unlocking
* repeat notification - i was able to uninstall a repeat notifier app b/c of this feature
* calendar - i was able to uninstall a calendar app b/c the calendar display is great

the price is a little steep, but this is a great app. i try to have the minimum # of apps installed, and i was able to remove several apps as this one worked as well or better. by far the best free app in a while, and definitely worth a few bucks.

Really impressed with this app. The lock screen is great. At a glance without unlocking my phone I can see most of the information I care about. Highly recommended. I only wish it included Google Voice integration.... and maybe a larger clock display.

All of the "shortcuts" available with this app are already just a tap away on my home screen. Why would I want to download another app or install a widget to view my email, or visit Facebook, or surf the web, or answer a phone call, or view call history, or today's agenda? Seems unnecessary to me, especially if you have to pay for it... not to mention the waste of precious battery power.

Installed and it worked well. I decided to have it set to show at home screen when it is turned on. It worked fine at first, but after the 20 minute time limit passed that requires me to input the security code, the security screen would only show 12, 45, 78 numbers, so my code which has uses missing numbers (3, 6, and 9) could not be input. That is a big problem.
