* Some Features Require Subscription
NEW & IMPROVED:
• New Time Picker! By popular demand, the time wheels are gone and you now have a super-efficient numerical keypad to enter the time of your events.
• The Date Picker now loads significantly faster
• The I5 Date/Time picker is now used everywhere throughout the app (replacing several areas that still used the legacy PI4 Date Picker). Aside from looking great, this also resolves several issues including the date/time picker popover being too wide on iPhone SE and some year selection problems on the Buddhist calendar.
• New Pure Black theme! It takes our "dark" theme one step further. This theme was designed with the iPhone X's OLED screen in mind - it looks great and saves energy!
• The iPhone X view picker no longer uses a 2nd row of buttons for the different calendar options - simply force touch on the main calendar icon to see them (or if you are already on the calendar view, a simple tap on the calendar icon will work as well)
• Triggers are now alphabetically sorted
• Informant Home screen now always shows the very next event (whether it has a location or not)
• Restoring or deleting a backup file now confirms with you first
• You can now share Informant with a friend and give your friend a FREE month!
• Fixed issue where you couldn't dismiss the search field once you started filtering the task or notes view.
• When doing a search on iPhone X, the search results would remain active even when collapsing the drawer
• Fixed issue where Informant might describe certain Apple Calendar events as repeating on the "0th Saturday" of the month
• Fixed issue restoring a backup from iCloud Drive
• Fixed issue where tag filtering might not work properly in non-English languages
• "Inbox" wasn't being localized in the task editor
• Fixed issue where after restoring purchases, Informant Sync might repeatedly fail with an error of "Failed to send IAP receipt"
• Fixed issue where you sometimes might see two "Dismiss" buttons in the Settings view on a Plus-sized phone
• Fixed a few iPhone X specific layout issues
• Background App Refresh sometimes would get hung up and time out before it could finish
• Several internal & stability improvements
Ratings and Reviews
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‼️
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.
