Osito: Helping you stay one step ahead
Featured in All Things D, CNET, Forbes, MIT Tech Review, Pandodaily, TechCrunch and more, Osito is a predictive intelligence application that proactively brings you the information you need so that you can stay one step ahead every day.
Unlike other applications, services or even personal assistants, Osito learns what you need to know based on the information you provide it -- including your location, updates from your calendar, email and your daily routine. This means that Osito can provide you useful, personalized insights like a heads up there's a traffic jam 20 minutes before your usual departure time or a weather alert before you leave for a lunch meeting.
How Osito Works
The magic of Osito is that you can forget we're even there until we have an update for you. Osito sends you personalized push notifications only when you need them to help you make faster, smarter choices throughout your day.
- Hate traffic? Once Osito learns your daily commute, it'll alert you to any delays or accidents on your commute -- suggesting you leave earlier or even try an alternate route.
- Travel details covered: Osito will alert you to your flight 24-hours before departure and as your pulling up to the airport, deliver your travel itinerary and boarding pass. When you land, Osito will deliver your hotel information or suggest the number of a local taxi -- saving you from searching through emails to get where you need to go.
- Forgot an umbrella? Osito saves you the step of checking the weather -- whether it's for your upcoming local work week or if you're traveling on vacation in a few days.
- Running late? Osito will let you know when you need to leave for your next meeting to make it on time.

Could be something special
An app that keeps you on track...keeps you ahead of the curve...not hardly. It could be. It has potential. However, I find the situation completely backwards due to having to check the app and make sure that it is still on. It gives you cards with special information, and when this works, it is nice. When you are done with the card, swipe it to the right to archive it. Here comes the worst part: the app keeps logging off, forcing you for some reason to have to re-archive every last card...EVERY ONE! Imagine! This app becomes completely useless. I have to check it due to it not notifying me of important things (I can do that through the weather, email and calendar apps), and then I have to log in again and start over from the beginning...needless to say, I am archiving this app.
Beautifully designed, but doesn't really work for me
Oh, how I wanted this to work. I love the design and the promise this app holds, but it just doesn't seem to work for me. I enabled calendar access in the hopes that it would prompt me for meetings, etc. But nothing happened. I waited a week, thinking that maybe it just needed time to work. Still nothing. My iPhone calendar appointments still don't show up in Osito. Today, as I write this, I have 7 appointments today. The app shows no upcoming events except for someone's birthday in two days. :-(
neat idea, but bombed with useless push notifications
I wanted this to be a great app. Instead, I received incessant push notifications about "traffic in your area" and "estimated time to work."
I take the train to work, yet I was reminded of my city's awful traffic every single day, usually 2-3 times. I waited almost 2 months, hoping for it to get better. The only thing it did correctly was predict rain. Everything else was way off target and completely useless to me.
Let me opt out of traffic notifications and estimated commute times.
