Dial2Do: new commands, new layout, and roll-your-own voice services

Some new features and a new layout rolled out in Dial2Do late last week. It would be fair to say we’re pretty excited – and we hope you are too 🙂 Among the new bits and pieces are:

  • Some cool new commands – you can now post *and* listen to your email, your calendar, twitter, friendfeed, blogs, and more
  • Some fun, simple content to listen to: Huffington Post, TechCrunch, New York Times, Yahoo Finance, etc. And if you really must, Perez Hilton!
  • Roll-your-own commands: if you don’t like what we’ve provided – make your own! You can now make your own commands in Dial2Do and have something happen – post to a URL, send an email or read you some RSS content
  • An improved layout to assist your navigation around the site
As ever – we’re keen to hear your feedback. So let us know what you think. Here’s a peek at some of the new commands and layout.

The commands you can use have now been tabbed for your ease of navigation. We’ve put our fave stuff up front under a “Recommended” tab.

  1. The GCal integration rocks – great stuff!

  2. @NiallSmart Thanks! All feedback welcome!

  3. I agree with Niall Smart. The GCal integration is superfab.

    What would be even cooler is if events added via Dial2Do also took on the reminders for the default calendar. At the moment, the events go in okay but minus any reminders (even though events added via the GCal interface automatically have reminders associated with them – provided you have set them up.)

    Unless you later go into GCal and manually add reminders, the events will come and go and you’ll be none the wiser – all too often in my case!

    Look forward to the next iteration of Dial2Do. Best of luck.
