Meet Kairn, a brand-new start-up coming out of stealth today with a sneak peek of what the business has been dealing with. As Wunderlist shuts down, Kairn wants to prove that there’s still room for an innovative task management service.
“We’re constructing a task manager that is wise and concentrated on capturing tasks,” co-founder and CEO Patricia Bernasconi told me. The start-up is backed by eFounders, a start-up studio that has actually been building popular software-as-a-service startups over the previous few years.
And it starts with 3 integrations with third-party services– Slack, WhatsApp and Gmail. It’ll instantly create a task in Kairn if you star an email conversation in Gmail. Likewise, if you star a message in Slack, it’ll end up in your todo list. With WhatsApp, you can forward a message to a bot to record it in Kairn.
“You do not have to switch apps continuously and you create jobs on the fly,” Bernasconi stated.
When you’re utilizing another app, and you can constantly trigger the Kairn fast include window on your computer system to add a job. The concept is that it must be as easy as possible to go into tasks in your task repository– Kairn in this case.
After that, you can open the primary Kairn desktop app and dig through your task inbox to see what you need to do. You can filter jobs by origin application and you can click on a job to look at the context of an email thread or a Slack message for instance. Kairn then lets you move jobs to the primary list, ‘My Day’. It works basically like Wunderlist or Microsoft To Do– as soon as per day, you can curate a list of tasks and then go through the list during your day.
The item is quite new as the business began development in April– beta screening will begin in the coming weeks. The concept is to repeat rapidly and launch new features as soon as they’re ready.
For instance, the mobile app is still in the works. There will be more methods to include tasks in the future. You might imagine highlighting text in your browser to develop a job based on that text choice.
With time, Kairn wants to become a full-fledged task management service. You’ll be able to appoint jobs and use it for complex job management situations. We’ll watch on the start-up to see where they’re heading.
