App Connects You With Personal Assistants


myassist app is a site that connects you with personal assistants that are available 24/7 for a subscription fee. If you’re a member of the site, they have a BlackBerry app so you can take the service mobile and contact your assistants directly from a native app. Some of the common MyAssist requests include:

  • Book a flight, hotel, rental car
  • Modify an existing travel itinerary
  • Request a restaurant recommendation
  • Arrange a taxi or limo service
  • Find an answer to a trivia question
  • Request directory lookup and directions
  • Purchase show or event tickets
  • Send flowers to your mother
  • Arrange golf course or spa reservations
  • Assist with language translations
  • Request medical assistance or referral

Virtual assistants are becoming increasingly popular and if you’re a fan of Tim Ferriss’ Four Hour Work Week, you’ll probably be a fan of this service.
