Informant is The ONE Calendar, Task, Note app you will ever need. Over 1 Million people have trusted Informant on iOS for over a decade as their go-to-organizer and now you can enjoy that same power of productivity on your Mac as well.

Why do customers choose Informant?

-”Informant puts tasks & calendar together in ONE app, the way it should be.”
-”Better, more useful calendar views. Native calendar apps are designed to be “pretty”, Informant is designed to be “pretty AND smart”.
-”It’s more fun with features like color coding, and emoticons.”

In our debut release of Informant for macOS, we're so excited to bring you many of the features that helped make Informant for iOS so popular...and a couple features unique to macOS:

• Tasks are integrated into all calendar views - get a truly complete picture of what your day looks like
• Our unique "Focus View" that lets you focus on a single day at a time with customizable sections for which groups of tasks you want to see
• Show the "Focus" sidebar in any calendar view! Drag and drop between the focus sidebar and your calendar view.

• Powerful task manager - create projects, use subtasks, and manage tasks with Franklin Style priorities or by using the GTD® principles
• Informant lets you manage your Apple Reminders in addition to your other tasks & projects
• Use checklists for tasks that contain lists - like groceries, packing, etc.
• Show tasks in your calendar

• Triggers: create "templates" for appointments & tasks that you can trigger to automatically fill out fields
• Add triggers to the "New" menu, or trigger them while typing a keyword in the title for an event or task

• Use Quick Entry to create new events and tasks no matter which app you are in. Define a custom hot key to bring up the Quick Entry window even when the main Informant App isn't running!

• A super handy menu bar utility that you can fully customize. Pick which groups of tasks you'd like to see, create a calendar filter to limit which events you see and you can also use it for creating new events and tasks with natural langauge!

• TAGS: You can create an apply tags to events or tasks. You can assign a custom color & icon to that tag and every item that you assign the tag to will automatically inherit those properties
• TABS: Informant lets you create multiple tabs to customize your workspace. Perhaps you might like to keep the month view open on one tab, a week view in another tab, and your task list open on another tab, etc.
• CALENDAR ITEM COLORS & ICONS: You can assign custom event/task colors and icons directly to an event or task, or to a tag, or to a calendar.
• SMART FILTERS: Create custom rules for finding tasks and save those as a Smart Filter. These smart filters show up on your main task view, but can also be included on your Focus View.

• Informant supports syncing with Google Calendar, Google Task, Toodledo, Evernote and our very own Informant Sync.

INFORMANT SYNC (optional subscription)
• Keep ALL your devices in sync! Informant Sync was designed from the ground up to be the best way to keep all your Informant data in sync between your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and now your Mac. In addition to syncing your events, tasks and notes, Informant Sync syncs all data unique to Informant - including Smart Filters, Tags, Icons, Colors and more!

Update..Great App! Please fix the Evernote sync


This has been my go to for ipad and phone! So good to be able to review/edit everything in one interface. Finding the app for the OS x has just completed the “hole in the circle”. They are working out a few bugs but support is responsive and I know this desktop version is almost there but will soon be just as solid as the IOS version. Thanks folks!
UPDATE… This has been so good, and support as well. since the 1.0.2 I can no longer sync Evernote on OS Sierra…works with High Sierra. Support was notified and they did respond but not with a solution. I ws told I should upgrade my work mac to High Sierra but other software has not resolved issues with High Sierra to make this an option. This has been several week and we are still waiting for a resolution. thanks for any help!

I’m a fan


I have been using Informant for mac since it was in an early beta version. I am also a user of the Informant app on iOS. It has been my go-to place to keep personal notes that I want to keep track of, and I love that I can have access to my google calendar, even when I don’t have an internet connection. I have 3 different calendars that I need to keep track of (google, apple, Microsoft 365), this app lets me keep all of them and gives me a task list & project manager that is far superior than any of the others. I have been a long time fan of Pocket Informant, and just like every app.. there are a few thigns I’d like to see done, but overall it is a great app and a good value.

Informant is amazing

iPad Maniac

Informant and its siblings on iPhone and iPad are the best in class for a calandaring, task management, time management tool.

I have tried many, many other apps and nothing quite makes the level of Informant. It is just so relatively easy to use. The ease of looking at your information from multiple dimensions is helpful. I also have found it relatively easy in integrate with other software (e.g., Airmail) to keep track of things that need to be done.
