HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM OTHER TASK MANAGERS?
Proper task management is essential, but it’s only part of the picture.
Pocket Informant is a full featured PIM, so it lets you focus on everything you do in a day – not just your task list. We believe bringing your appointments and tasks together in one place is more efficient than working in isolated calendar and task management systems. Pocket Informant is designed to not force you into any one method of doing things – use our Task View as rigidly or freely as you want, using GTD principles, Franklin Covey, or your own system.
WHY DO I NEED THIS WHEN I HAVE A CALENDAR?
We love our iPhones, but we saw some untapped potential for a full-featured PIM. Pocket Informant fills that gap. To start with, we made navigation very natural – simply swipe between the months, or tap the month name to jump to a new date. For those of us who have several events in a day, we built a time bar so you can see how your day is blocked off at a glance. When looking at a day’s activities, we show you your appointments AND tasks together, and we give you nearly the entire screen to see them. We offer a convenient view to quickly see activities going on “today”, and we built a great week view as well.
For years, these and numerous other features have made Pocket Informant a must-have application for school teachers, soccer moms, salesmen and executives alike.
Localizations: English, German, and French. New Languages will be added in future releases.

What’s New In Version 1.53
This update includes several fixes and improves overall stability of Pocket Informant in a number of areas. Specific fixes include:
-Task Templates now properly apply project/context info
-Improved handling for repeating tasks. Specifically, setting up and completing tasks that repeat from completion date is more intuitive and works as expected.
-Location alarm handling is more efficient
-Resolved issue that could sometimes cause the Today view to not always refresh the task list properly
-Fixed issue where the multi-select edit bar may not always appear when tasks are selected
-The help screen now offers a more intuitive way to get back to the Tutorial video
-Many other general improvements.
As always, it’s recommended to back up your database before applying updates.
We have had many questions about specific features that we’ve promised for the next release. This release focuses on issue improvements while the next major release (version 1.60) focuses on new features such as a redesigned icon picker, calendar icons, tag icons, native iPhone calendar access and more. This next major release will be ready to submit to Apple by the end of the month.
