Iwantsandy is a new breed of organizational system to keep people organized on the go. It is marketed as more of a virtual secretary than a personal to-do list. Instead of adding items into your to-do list or tickler files manually, you can CC Sandy when you send an email with important information, and she will intelligently scan the email and try to pick out things you want her to remember. She’s pretty smart by herself, but you can further the accuracy by using her name or keywords such as “Remind me” or “Remember” to flag the surrounding area as being important information. Here are some of the examples they give for students:
I was lucky enough to have gotten a beta invitation a couple months ago, but I haven’t really used it. It’s not that iwantsandy is bad or anything, it just doesn’t fit my style of organization. I prefer spending the extra time to personally organize my tickler files and to-do list. However for the average busy student who doesn’t want to spend time with to-do lists, iwantsandy is an amazing tool.
