(CNBC) – Google confirmed Monday that it had acquired start-up Timeful, an app that can schedule events into your calendar to work around what you already have planned.

“You will start to see the unique features you’ve come to expect from Timeful – and much more – available in Google Apps,” the start-up said on its website.

With Timeful you can, for example, tell it that you want to work out three times a week. It then syncs up with your calendar platform and slots in the best times for you to exercise around your current schedule.

Google did not disclose how much it paid for the app.

The move underlines a major push from the Mountain View, CA- tech giant to boost its productivity apps on mobile, particularly those that automatically learn the behaviour of its user.
