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.

Very Flexible and Functional

Informant 5 helps me do the tasks I need to do during the day, keep my appointments, and keep some of the essential information I need close at hand. I have Attention Deficit Disorder, and I find that this is a good tool to help me manage my day.

But Informant 5 helps me do some jobs better than others. When I am simply entering appointments and tasks on a daily basis, it shows a 5 star level of ease of use. But when I start classifying my information by all of the many categories this app provides, and then filtering and cross-referencing to display the specific appointment and task lists I want, the results are not as good as I would like. Someone who understands better than I do how Informant 5's underlying data bases relate to each other might get better results.

But I rely on this app daily and I find that if I use Informant 5 simply, I also use it effectively; unfortunately, as I try to use some of its potentially stronger features the learning curve is steeper and I am less effective.

I am offering a four star rating, because I find Informant 5 a little complicated to use at times. But those four stars still come with a strong recommendation. It's advantages outweigh the disadvantages, and it is a life saver for someone who, like me, has faith that a portion of life can be organized, but may only brush their teeth if that is on a check-list, if they remembered where they put the check-list before they went to bed.

Once great app. Now bloated

I have used Pocket Informant (now Informant) since 2010. The newest inception is a major step backwards. First of all, the time picker for an Event is horrible. It is a scroll wheel that is fiddly and difficult to use, not to mention it is in one minute increments which makes it even more fiddly. You have to double check the time entered because it has a tendency to “drift.” Why they got away from a simple entering of the time by keypad, I do not know.
Also, entering an event can take up to 20 seconds. Push to bring up menu. Wait several seconds for the screen to appear, them use the time wheel (on both start and end time if it goes past your default end time).
Furthermore, the new interface makes no sense and actually adds an extra step to get to the calendars/tasks, etc.
The app just seems bloated; tags, calendars, keywords, triggers.I guess these are needed for GTD or Covey followers but if you need a simple calendar with tasks, I would not recommend. And until they fix the time picker, I would not recommend at all.

Developer Response

Please see our Facebook page and the blog on our website. We have several mock ups for the new time picker being shown and you can express your opinion. It looks like the most popular choice over there is a direct entry keypad. It that continues to be the trend then that is most likely what the new time picker will be.

Normal performance is far less than 20 seconds to create a new item. There are several factors that can affect app performance for this concern we suggest that you contact our support team, they will be glad to assist you with this.

The new interface was designed to address a common user request for more screen real estate for the display of data and less for the controls. Again we have heard the feedback and some revisions to the current view selector are being sketched out. In the 15 months that the current interface has been in use we have received a lot of feedback both positive and constructive and we've heard and will be updating accordingly.

Informant is much more than a calendar app with tasks, viewing it that way is selling the application short. It does do calendar and task work but the strength of Informant is that it can be as complex or as simple as you want it to be. It is designed to be a complete personal information management solution, in addition to the calendar and tasks, there are notes, contacts, email integration an much more to help you streamline the activities of your life.
