Today we’re delighted to announce the rolling out of two new features in Everything Home that get everything even closer to your fingertips! Let me walk you through them:
You know those small, useful snippets of apps that are called widgets? The ones that save you time and give you info? We know lots of people love them so we’ve just brought them even closer to your fingertips, because from now on you can stick them inside Everything’s Smart Folders.
I find that widgets work best for me when I use them sparingly and in the right places. Let me give you a couple of examples… Under my ‘Buzz’ Smart Folder, I added the ‘BuzzFeed’ widget. This means I can get my dosage of otters who look like Benedict Cumberbatch in record time now!
When I need my music fix, I need it quick. That’s why I stuck the Spotify widget in my ‘Music’ Smart folder. Now I have Dizzee Rascal playing on repeat both at work, and as soon as I step out on the street. That’s right, at Everything We Don’t Play Around.
Our second brand-spanking new feature is all about getting everything you need even closer to your fingertips…
You know how your bestie knows you like your huge no-sugar-no-milk black coffee in the morning? And that your workmates know you always have Jasmin tea right after lunch? Well, that’s pretty much what we just built into Everything Home.
Your most used apps – at any given moment in your day – now automagically appear in Everything Home. Here are how my own looked like today:
In the morning, Everything is used to me checking-in, so it had Foursquare ready. Yammer was waiting for my finger-tap for the morning dose of work-related communication. Skype was there for my morning sync with my overseas team-mate, and the calendar was upfront so I can catch up with today’s schedule.
In the evening Waze was waiting to get me home quickly, Instagram because I usually snap some selfies or street art on the way home. Spotify to push some block rockin’ beats into my ears, and ESPN ready to get my sports on!
I hope you find our new features useful for your life as much as I do – let me know how Everything does everything for you!
