What is Easilydo? 

Unlike traditional productivity and social apps, Easilydo is a smart, all-in-one assistant app that makes you more productive AND more connected. No to-do lists, no digging, no switching back and forth between apps. Easilydo finds important everyday tasks and communications from your calendar, email, Facebook, etc. — and offers to take care of them for you right on the spot with one tap of the ‘Do It’ button. It’s that simple, and it’s free!

**You are warmly invited to our "Dream it. Hack it. Do it! Hackathon" and contribute your ideas to our awesome repertoire of automated tasks called ‘Do Its.’ The hackathon entry should follow this paradigm:

**

When event happens, offer to do action.

**
Examples:
**

  • "When I am not at home, offer to show me map directions to go home."
  • "When I receive an event invitation on Facebook, offer to add it to my Google Calendar."

The sky's the limit. Get your creative juices flowing and hack the coolest Do It the world has ever seen!
