Ratings and Reviews
Still needs a lot of work
I used Pocket informant in 2013 but became frustrated with the inability to prioritize tasks. Finally went back to paper planning due to lack of customizability. I decided to give digital planning another try, and being familiar with pocket informant tried it first. While the app is visually pleasing, and much easier to use, still unable to prioritize tasks. It would be super easy to drag and drop, especially since this is available in the project view. The tasks actually laid up and seem like they’re going to move, but then don’t stay re-ordered. Very frustrating. The notes section needs a lot of work. Unfortunately I’m going to have to continue to use Notability for this functionality. There’s no Apple Pencil support which is a big drawback. One nice thing is the ability to customize to GTD or Franklin Covey. However neither of these systems is conducive to putting in tasks quickly, which is why you need to be able to manually re-order tasks on the go. I’ve had to contact support twice, the first time I never got an answer, the second time their response was less than awesome since it was essentially sorry no but hey go re-posted on this website and give the engineers some ideas. If this were a free app that would be an acceptable response but I paid for a year subscription so I think maybe you could just forward my email on and save me the trip.
I use this all the time, for all my events & tasks—meetings, bills due, travel. Got it originally when switching from Palm to iPhone (yes, that long ago) because I couldn’t find anything else that supported recurring meetings each month on the 1st Tuesday, 2nd Wednesday, &c. I like the ability to modify “Just This” or “all future” in a series. Time zone support is essential for travel, and the current version is easy and transparent. Defaults to local time, just like airline schedules do, but can be set for time at original entry, to shift entries automatically when you’re traveling and the teleconference remains at the same time. Also like the ability to set multiple alarms—a day or two ahead to prepare, and then just when it’s time to go.
4 stars, not 5, because 1) the calendar can be slow to come up and populate itself. Significantly worse in the current version on iPhone 7 than earlier versions. 2) Also, Setting start and end times is a little fiddly. I often scroll the minutes when I am trying to scroll the hours, and I can’t see the hours when scrolling unless I use my left thumb. The sensitive areas don’t register properly with the text. Again, this is new misbehavior.
Almost a 5 Star!
I completely concur with the ‘WalrusTexas’ review:
I also chose Pocket Informant when I switched from Palm to iPhone because there wasn’t a calendar app out there that could manage all the repeating event/task iterations I need for my 8 life-areas with enough color choices to help visually distinguish them quickly. I’ve been recommending this app highly for years (yes, since Palm bit the dust) and assuring them that the relatively high cost was worth EVERY cent they’d pay for it!
However, I too find the roller dial to select appt times cumbersome because the right thumb (my preference in use) tends to hit the ‘most bites’ section when I’m trying to reach over it to pick the hour section. This feature still needs some work. I’ve submitted a suggestion that might solve 90-95% of this problem. Add a button or place to choose “__:00” or “__:30” for the minutes with one tap. 95% of the time appts or tasks are scheduled or rescheduled on the hour or half hour, so this would greatly expedite entries, as I often overshoot the :00 or :30 when I’m using the roller bar 10-20x per day!
Thank you in advance for your consideration. Keep up the great work! LOVE this app‼️
