While keyboards are pretty commonplace with a PC or Mac, when I’m out and about I use Siri (since I have an iPhone/iPad) to record reminders to myself about things ‘on the fly’.
- SIRI: Remind me to mow the lawn
- SIRI: Remind me to pick up milk
Dynalist (when I was a user) had a feature in which you could email it (with a Dynalist-provided address) text whose Body was then entered into your "default list’. So you could email ‘email@example.com’ a message, the the body of that message would appear in my default list "selected in dynalist’s preferences. I would voice email myself messages of things, then see….

- Mow the Lawn
- Pick up Milk
Later, I wrote an app that ran on my home server that ‘scraped’ my Siri Reminders in my Apple account every few minutes and then it emailed my Dynalist email address. This reduced my tedious email routine to:
Hey Siri, Remind me to mow the lawn in Dynalist
The server app would then see the new reminder, look for the keywords “in Dynalist” at the end of the text, then email the important part to my Dynalist account.
Obviously this was a pretty complicated method of doing what I’m suggesting:
I’d like to see an iOS application/extension/minicode (whatever iOS would call it) that could respond to a SIRI command directly and add an item to a default named list (in preferences) within Legend. The simplest example would be:
Hey Siri: Mow the lawn in Legend.
Then, based on your preferences in the iOS Legend, the item would go into the preselected Document at a defined location from your preferences based upon the desired path, i.e….
DocumentName/Item/ChildItem/ChildItem (Obviously you want the base of this to remain constant).
This would give the ability to superquickly add items to Legend on the fly, without having the fire up a keyboard, or launch it and go to the Add/QuickAdd button. Adding an items becomes as quick as the thought hits you.
