Email directly into tasks -great feature


Edit: I'm a former avid fan (see below) now urging people to stay away from this app. All the other comments about ransomware are correct. Very disappointed and looking for an alternative. Wunderlist is much better for tasks and integrates to some extent with the stock Calendar app.

I've used this great app for a few years now, but felt I should write a review as I've only just discovered the new feature which enables email to be turned directly into tasks (and then with one further step, into events). This does need the optional $15pa online sync to work, but is a killer feature and totally worth the money. I love being able to click on a task/event and have the entire supporting email right there in the app. The Evernote integration is also fantastic. Well done.

Developer Response

I am very sorry to hear that we have left you frustrated. There is a bug in v4.94 that caused a link to "try the new version" to freeze the screen. This was ABSOLUTELY not intentional, and we have provided a fix for this in our FAQ. You can contact our support team to resolve it. Since we are no longer providing updates for v4.94 we do encourage you to move to the new version 5 app. We do hope that we can regain your confidence with this new app v5.

Responsive, highly customisable, excellent customer support

Doctor Marple

Completely love this electronic diary. I've tried most of the calendars in the App Store and this is by far the best. I sync with google calendar and tasks so I have my diary at work and at home synced. Quickly add a task or event. Loads of useful features. Plus, the Pocket Informant team has excellent customer service if you need to access support.

Pocket Informant better and better


Shame shame Shame......this is new updated review September 2017..... Now no longer supported.. All the upgrade I paid for out the window... Now they want me to upgrade to version 5.. Pay all over again.... No thank you.... You guys have become too greedy..
I've been using this for years. It's is one of the best tools I have found and now have it on my IPad, IPhone and work and work PC's.
The best part is the fact the program is constantly being upgraded and improved ..
I am very happy to recommend Pocket Informant.
