Hey, everyone! As said Ben Eidelson: “The comfort of messaging has had real consequences in making it the most engaging and popular activity on our most personal devices”. This has formed changes in the paradigm of user experience. The messenger is “browser”, and bots are “web application”. They allow you to receive any necessary information instantly. Today I want to share with you the most useful ones and show how you can pump your Telegram.

@GitHubBot

The bot connects to your repository and notifies about various events in it. Moreover it allows you to reply to comments without leaving the Telegram. I also want to mention @gittrendsbot, which broadcasts the trend list of GitHub.

@GetStatsbot

Statsbot is a powerful Analytical Companion. You can add Statsbot to query data from Google Analytics in natural language right into your Telegram. Also it automates the process of sharing these data sets and graphs with your team. So if you want to see sign ups this week just type: “@statsbot: signups this week”. Do you need to check sources of mobile users? — It’s easy: “users last month by source for mobile”. Statsbot supports all metrics, dimensions and custom goals from GA.

@Temp_mail_bot

Very useful bot allows you to use temporary email addresses with 10-minute self-destruction.

@Pomodoro_timer_bot

Pomodoro is one of the most popular GTD techniques. The point is simple: the work is divided into periods of time of 30 minutes, which are called “tomatoes”, where you work for 25 minutes without distractions and 5 minutes of rest. Pomodoro Bot automatiseret control this technique. It measures the “tomatoes”, sends notifications and shows statistics for the day.
