Any.Do releases Cal 1.1 with new heads-up feature

Any.Do Cal

Any.Do have released a new version of their popular calendar application, known simply as Cal, which brings the new ‘HeadsUp’ feature to the masses, after testing in beta for the last couple of weeks.

HeadsUp will pop up a special settings screen before, during, and after a meeting. Here’s what you’ll get on each one of them:

Before a meeting:

  • Navigate your way with Google maps
  • Let participants know you’re running late
  • Get an Uber and arrive on time
  • Email a message to the invitees

During a meeting:

  • Mute your phone to avoid interruptions
  • Add tasks as they come up in conversation
  • Take photos of white board drawings, diagrams, documents to share with everyone
  • Record video or audio of what’s being discussed
  • Send a summary email to the group

After a meeting:

  • Add or send action items to your peers
  • Set Follow-up meetings with everyone involved
  • Send an email summary to get everyone on the same page

While the features are clearly aimed at improving productivity in meetings, you can of course make use of the HeadsUp function for other purposes, like managing a busy social calendar for starters. Let us know what you think of the new update.
