Tempo Smart Calendar App Review – Your Free Personal Assistant

tempo app smart calendar iphone

Tempo is a revolutionary smart calendar app that manages your busy day-to-day schedule, prepares you for your upcoming meetings and networking events, and has a warm dinner waiting for you on the table when you get home each night.

Okay, it won’t actually make you dinner, but this productivity app (while not perfect) can be extremely helpful to today’s business owner, especially if you are just starting your business. Tempo is an iOS app that aggregates anything you may need for meetings or events by connecting your calendar to your email, location, documents and social profiles.

Created by experts in search and artificial intelligence, this app utilizes technology similar to the iPhone’s Siri although, unlike Siri, Tempo actually works like a personal assistant.

  • Be Prepared for Every Meeting

    • This is one of Tempo’s greatest and worst features.
      • With enough preparation, Tempo will also attach documents and emails associated with the meeting to the meeting event page
    • However, unless you use a very specific naming syntax with your documents and email subject lines, most users find that Tempo struggles with this functionality. Tempo has provided some recommendations below:

Tempo App User Reviews

According to Tempo, the most used feature is the ability to review documents that are related to a particular event in your calendar. While this sounds like a helpful feature, it is still “very buggy” and often loads documents and emails not associated with the event. With enough planning and a determined naming syntax, issues with this can be avoided, but right now there is not a way to remove the extraneous files that Tempo has associated with the event.

However, a quick look at Tempo’s Twitter Feed shows that Tempo is working hard to stay on top of the customer reviews and fix these issues
