2015 - Google acquired mobile calendar app Timeful to fight Yahoo Calendar


Google has acquired the calendar app Timeful that is intended to reduce stress, increase productivity, and bring better life balance to all the people overwhelmed by everything that competes for their time. The app worked by initially learning the daily scheduling habits of its users, before using notifications to help prioritize certain tasks. If the user stated their intention to go to the gym three times a week for instance, the app would offer suggestions and reminders for scheduling those sessions in during a user’s free time. Google plans to apply Timeful’s technology “across products like Inbox, Calendar and beyond,” Product Management Director Alex Gawley said in a blog post.
