To keep Reflect’s UI simple and easy to use, we try hard not to add too many features in. By integrating Reflect with other apps, we gain a lot of functionality without cluttering the user experience.
Here are some of the tools that Reflect can integrate with, what they can do, and how to setup the integration.
📆 Calendar and Contacts
We integrate with Google Contacts, Google Calendar, iCal and Office 365 to pull in relevant contacts and meetings. For more info, see Calendar and contacts

Readwise is a classic in the tools for thought space. They’ve built out integrations with all sorts of sources so you can take your data with you wherever you go.
With this integration, any of these highlights, bookmarks, and clippings you make in Readwise will automatically flow into Reflect.
