Siri on the iPhone or iPad is pretty good at handling basic tasks, but you can’t give our favorite intelligent assistant too much work. That puts her into a loop and there’s no telling what she might do to your credit card on iTunes.
Siri is great at creating an event or a reminder or launching an app. But ask the poor creature where you’ve got some free time in a busy day, and she’s likely to just give you the time. Is there a better way?
Free-Time Gives You Free Time
Here’s the scenario. You have a busy Calendar, stuffed with event after event. In fact, your Calendar is so clogged and the iPhone’s screen is so small you can’t find an open slot at a glance.
What you need is free time and the way to get it is with the 99-cent app Free-Time.
All Free-Time does is find free time on your Calendar schedule.
It’s actually smart enough to know what’s already free today, tomorrow, or any day in the near future.
Free-Time displays the day, which displays the total number of hours free on that day. Tap the day and you’ll see the events for the day, and the open free time, too.
Wait. It gets better.
Free-Time is sharable.
All you need to do is tap a button and Free-Time is ready to share some free time– your time– with others.
Share the free time in your schedule with an auto-formatted email (good for meetings), or a text message (quick and easy way to roundup co-workers).
There’s another way to share free time from your Calendar. Simply bump your iPhone to another iPhone running Free-Time.
Is that a great way to share, or what? Take that, Samsung Galaxy User With An Attitude!
At some point in the future Apple will further integrate Siri into third party apps, so I look forward to the day when I can ask Siri, “List the free time on my Calendar, Siri,” and she responds with something other than, “I’m not aware of any appointments about ‘free time, Alex.‘
