Executive Assistant (EA) provides an all-in-one interface for quickly reviewing your:

+ Email: any combination of GMail, Google Apps, or POP/IMAP accounts. Exchange too if you use a supported email client. See below for a list of supported clients.
+ Text messages: both native and Google Voice, including pop-up and reply options
+ Missed calls: return calls directly from the app
+ Calendar events (including Exchange & Facebook if supported by your phone)
+ Tasks: Astrid, DGT GTD (w/Pure Widget plugin), Google Tasks Organizer, Got To Do, GTasks by Dato, ToDo Task Manager, or TouchDown
+ Feedly RSS feeds
+ Twitter timeline
+ Facebook news

Use in any of 4 modes:
+ Lock Screen: Use as a lock screen replacement to preview all of your stuff without going thru the hassle of unlocking the phone. You choose which info is safe to show on the lock screen.

+ Welcome Screen: Instant-on immediately after unlocking the phone.

+ Home Screen Widget: 'always on' interface wherever you want it. Use a full-widget that includes a preview area, or a single-row, icons-only widget that simply shows the app icons with counts. Many sizes to choose from. Optionally use a Sense-like or Glass theme for the full-widget.

+ Lock Screen Widget: for Android 4.2 & up you can also put the EA widget on the system lock screen.

Full-widgets are scrollable for Android 3.0 & later, and for any launcher that supports version 2 of the scrollable widgets extension, such as: ADW, Launcher+, Go and Zeam.

In every mode: launch apps, return missed calls, dial voicemail (or optionally choose to launch Google Voice, Visual Voicemail or any other voicemail app).

Reply to SMS messages directly from the Welcome Screen or Lock Screen, without unlocking (if you enable this option).

Host your favorite widgets & shortcuts on lock or welcome screen.

The background image will be the same as your home screen wallpaper (including live wallpapers). Customize the color and transparency of the text displays in all modes. Optionally select custom icons for the tabs.

Integrates with MetaWatch (MWM-CE & MWM-NE)

Supported POP/IMAP clients: AquaMail, Enhanced Email, K9 and Kaiten Mail

You don’t need to use a supported client to access POP/IMAP accounts in EA, however, if you do, then EA can access your messages directly from the on-device database, without having to fetch them over your data connection. Also, tapping a message in EA will open it in the corresponding app.

If you don’t want to use one of the supported email clients, then you can use EA’s free POP/IMAP add-on to fetch your messages from your mail server (EA will install it for you if you decide to use it).

Supported Exchange clients: TouchDown by NitroDesk and Enhanced Email by Quantum Solutions

If you want to preview Exchange email in EA, your best options are to use either TouchDown or Enhanced Email. TouchDown is a dedicated Exchange app that gives you access to your corporate email, calendar and tasks. Enhanced Email is a general email client that supports Exchange accounts in addition to POP/IMAP accounts. Some people are also able to access their Exchange accounts using K9 or Kaiten. Some Exchange servers also allow access via IMAP.

Note that we would also love to support the stock EMail & GMail apps but unfortunately, Google does not currently allow 3rd party apps to access those databases.

GMAIL USERS:
Even without direct access to the GMail app’s data, you still have two good options for accessing your gmail & Google Apps accounts in EA:

1. enable IMAP for your account (from GMail on the web, see Settings/Mail settings/Forwarding & POP/IMAP), then access your account using one of the supported POP/IMAP clients, or the POP/IMAP add-on.

or,

2. select the "Get from Google" option when setting up your account in EA and EA will fetch your gmail preview from Google’s servers.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions or problems.

User reviews of Executive Assistant +
I like this app, but a word of warning. I was throttled by T-Mobile for excess data usage. After investigating, I found that frequent updates of the tabs was probably causing it. Check your settings.

REALLY love this app. Suggestions. . . Add features now available in "MB Notifications for Facebook." Or find a way to allow THAT feed into the EA list. That is far more useful that the number of recent updates. I would much prefer to know of messages and comments made to my posts. FB messaging (and even just the comments) is now a more likely way for my friends and I to communicate than email. This suggestion though is the ONLY shortcoming of this app, if I can even call it that. This is one slick interface, loaded with options. I highly recommend it -- it is work every penny. I also should add, the only thing I miss about my Blackberry is the "dashboard" feature it had when you opened the screen -- a list of all missed/waiting communications. This fits the bill. I searched for one here for many months and finally just stumbled on this.

Bom,mas as vezes da uns pequenos erros.

App does not auto refresh all the time so it does not always work.

Extremely useful and productive widget for my everyday use. Well-worth the money spent as it integrates multiple apps together. Lockscreen feature is my most favourite mode. TYVM :D Update: Loving v1.7.8 with customised icon support. TY4the awesome update. $6.99 is nothing much for its feature, IMHO. A full-screen experience makes this app so fantastic.
