4.0 out of 5 stars Redundant? Maybe. But still useful. June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Home Screen Widget June 22, 2011
By Chris
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars cool June 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice program June 25, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the lock screen widget is awesome June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Access to Useful Information June 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
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.

Great idea, but too buggy. Nothing abt this app works like it should, at least not on my phone. Constantly froze my phone just trying to setup everything.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not horrible June 22, 2011
By SuzInKS
Verified Purchase
I've tried this with the free (adware) version. It was too limited so I removed it. I thought the full version might be better but sadly, its not. For exchange integration, it tells me to use Touchdown. ?! That's a more stepped up version of THIS program!?!?! Why would I have both of these on my phone? (BTW-I HATED Touchdown! What a battery drain on my Evo!)

Like lots of people, I use my phone for both work and non-work. I have email acounts for work and multiple ones for personal accounts. So I need an app that integrates all of these. The out of the box email app pulls from all three of these but that's really all it does. I also want a to do (task) program that integrates with my exchange account- I just don't use my google or yahoo tasks-why duplicate the effort? I need a calendar program that integrates with exchange where I keep all my appointments. I don't need to have three seperate add ons to do only one of these and if I can't get tasks from exchange, with this program. I just don't need it. I'll wait until one of the to do/task programs have a full exchange integration and then use the out of the box features in my Andriod for everything else. TaskOS is promising this but so far - its not happening....

The inability to fully integrate with exchange without tons of add-ons makes this program unusable for me. Will be deleting.

I used this more when Google didn't offer drive. Now that's fully implemented, this just has no value as drive is much more simpler to use.
