A novel calendar and phonebook assistance system is proposed to search for words and sentences in phone conversations that are relevant to calendars and phonebooks and automatically enter or modify meeting appointments and phonebook entries in the calendar and phonebook applications to incorporate new information that is gathered from the phone conversation. This calendar and phonebook assistance system highly leverages the information gathered from the phone conversation to make the applications more intelligent and convenient. Using a voice recognition system that can parse continuous speech or a dictation system that automatically converts continuous speech to text, calendar and phonebook relevant information is gathered from the phone conversation. With the user confirmation, calendar and phonebook entries are automatically created or modified to incorporate relevant information from the phone conversation.
