Updated review October 2016...
I have used PI since the days of Palm Pilot and Blackberry. I have also strayed away from PI over the years to use primarily Omni Focus but am now "back". While there is no doubt that OF is a very good and much buzzed about application, Pocket Informant - or now simply Informant - has been quietly improving while maintaining a level of user flexibility that in my opinion can not be found in other PIM applications to either the degree or quality level experienced with PI. The learning curve for PI takes a bit longer than some other apps but the time invested is worth the payoff.
The iPad and the iPhone versions provide a seamless and consistent user experience. The Mac version continues to lag as incremental improvements to get to a true v1.0 are taking a very long time to become available. Once the Mac milestone is achieved I expect the quality and thought behind it will live up to expectation. Unlike some other recent reviews I have not found pricing to be an issue. There is a monetary value to me as a user and there has to be monetary reward to a developer. I don't work for free and I don't expect someone else to.
Customizable - great task integration
If you use tasks (or apple reminders) like a list of items to-do on a given date (but without a time) then this is the app for you! It allows you to view them on your calendar and manage them easily - for example, uncompleted tasks carry over to the next day, can be quickly assigned to a different due date, and incorporated into projects.
App is also highly customizable - if you wish you can view weather, all day events, estimated time of arrival etc - so that you can make the app suit your workflow, rather than your having to change what you do to match the app.
I have been using this product for 10 years now - first on WinDoze mobile, then Crackberry, and now on my iPhone/iPad - and it is my most used, most important app.
But sadly the today widget is much less useful than previous versions, which showed start and end times aligned on the left so you could quickly scan your upcoming appointments (now that they are right justified you have to take an extra second or two to find the info).
Great app- unhappy at paying $4.99 Ransom
I've used this app for about 15 years. Ever since the Pocket PC days. Alex Kac the CEO and I have communicated on and off over the years online but not in the last few years. And I have tested out various functions in years gone by but life has made this difficult recently. But I have paid for upgrades as and when no problem. I love supporting the app and Alex's / his team's hard work. I am very annoyed at having functionality taken away- tasks, notes etc, that I already paid for. THEN being forced to pay $4.99.
Give me something more and charge- but do not hold my app to ransom and make it useless unless I pay. This is the last time Alex. And this comes from a 15 year user. You have screwed up. If you bill me again for any reason while I own this app or stop support in the next 2 years, then I will ask for a refund from Apple. And I will get it. They are very reasonable. I am offended after being such a loyal user. I will pay for effort and improved functionality. Heck, I will even pay for any update that just ensures compatibility with major iOS updates. I have in fact. But blackmailing me is offensive.
