We believe that a product is only as good as the support behind it, and we strive to bring you the best! Our support team is always ready to answer any questions you may have, quickly and efficiently.
Single Purchase for iPhone/iPad
Don’t pay twice for the same app! We made Informant be Universal for iPhone and iPad and with a single in-app purchase, you enable the Premium feature set on all your Apple iOS-based devices.
With fourteen years of mobile experience and 20 years working with Apple products, Pocket Informant is designed with the mobile professional in mind. Measure twice, cut once isn’t just a good idea: it forms the basis for how we approach our feature-set.
Colors and Icons
Colors and Icons make your calendar items stand out. Quickly see how your events and tasks fill your day by looking at the icons and colors. Set icons on your sync accounts, calendars.
Natural Language Entry
Type (or speak*) naturally! Enter phrases like “Take out garbage every Friday at 8am” or “Coffee with Mom Tuesday at 8am”. Use our Quick Entry to enter new events or tasks in any view.
*Speech recognition requires iPhone 4S or later, 5th gen iPod Touch or 3rd gen iPad or later
Fresh New Interface Design
We’ve made it easier to create and edit events and tasks with a purely clean designed interface designed for simple power. Tap on an event to bring up its details – including the weather at its time and place. Tap on the “New” menu and bring up a list of templates to create events from quickly and easily. New Month and Day views with a cleaner, more vibrant look. Task and event data shown with a greater focus on your data – not the user interface chrome. Show your note/alarm/recurrence icons without looking cluttered.
Advanced Location Support
Version 4.0 now supports geofences with custom areas around your locations – and now Pocket Informant can alert you to nearby loved one’s iPhones or iPads via Apple’s iBeacon technology. Filter your calendar or task list by geofenced location or the nearest Informant iBeacon. Geofencing works great for outdoor locations – iBeacons handle the indoor locations!
Get alerts for arriving, or leaving a geofenced area. Change your geofenced area from 100m to thousands of meters.
Unique Digital Month View
4.0 clears your calendar like no secretary can! We’ve rewritten our Month View from scratch to be cleaner, faster and unlike every other calendar app – we move beyond how paper calendars show your calendar. The Month View scrolls vertically and smoothly, showing each month with a dark line separating the months, and the month name as the first day.
This unique digital format goes beyond the limitations of paper calendar visuals by allowing multi-day events to smoothly and visually cross months and give you a real sense of the week you are in. It also gives you the ability to have the current week at the top of the screen so you see more of your future events. And the best part is unlike other calendars that try to bring together months – you won’t get lost in what month you’re looking at.
Help manage the timezone mess! Just create trips for whenever you travel and Pocket Informant will automatically setup your timezones for you – both inside and outside your trip dates! Dealing with timezones has never been easier!
- Events created during a travel period automatically get set to that timezone.
- During the travel period events created outside the travel period will use the home timezone.
- Events created outside the travel period for a time period outside a travel period are not affected by TravelAssist™.
- Events created on calendars with specific timezones ignore TravelAssist™.
Just starting typing and let Pocket Informant bring up your contacts or templates. Tap on a contact and create meetings or phone calls. Automatically bring in phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, locations with just a couple taps!
Building upon our powerful template function you can also now show often-used templates in our New menu – creating new events or tasks off a template with one tap!
