Input is the iOS application you’ll love if you like the terminal on OS X

Focus, el cronómetro omnipresente para los que buscan mejorar su productividad en iOS y OS X

Here’s one of those applications that are more of an experiment, but still interesting: Are you tired of switching between applications to do basic actions from the iPhone? Do you think there has to be a much easier way to do things? Then pay attention to Input, an application that does everything with text commands .

The idea is simple: Input integrates with a number of services and applications to be able to do “assignments” such as creating an event, generating tasks or even displaying content from files we have stored in the cloud. There is support for Dropbox, Asana, Todoist, Twitter, Wunderlist, Slack, Evernote, Omnifocus… their graphical interfaces are replaced to be able to execute written commands from a single application.

Input is capable of sending commands to other applications and services through a simple interface for writing plain text

And that’s why the Input interface looks like a simple text editor: because by writing ” calendar café with Pedro at 13h ” you already generate an event with all that information. Other commands that already teach us by themselves how the application works can be ” dropbox-show ” to show the text of a Dropbox file, or “asana” to be able to create tasks in that service.

Input is free for everyone to try by integrating up to two services, but asks us for 1.99 euros each time we want to add integration with three additional services . So, the more we use it, the more we pay for it. However, if we happen to get used to using our applications like this, it might be a good investment.
