  • Once great app. Now bloated

    By 2112fromEC
    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.
  • I’m really loving Informant

    By Shorty2283
    This app includes everything with regard to staying organized with your schedule. I also appreciate having the ability to ‘customize’ it the way that I need and I appreciate the features that are offered. It’s visually attractive and very seamless to use.
  • Disappointed!

    By NAHuber
    I had to bite the bullet and subscribe as my old version would no longer sync with google calendar. This version freezes regularly and has a non intuitive and clunky user interface. I will say that Support has been very responsive so far. I don’t mind paying (and have paid for many versions since it came out), but it NEEDS to work! Continue to be even more disappointed and quite frankly ripped off. The previous (4)version WORKED. This one does not. Too hard to even launch my calendar and see what’s on it..
  • Charging a subscription?

    By Acohen007
    Charging a subscription for a calendar, ludicrous . You paying the developer a subscription for a calendar, stupid. And to the previous response from the developer regarding subscription based apps like this becoming the norm. It’s thanks to idiots paying subscriptions. You win Mr. Developer.
  • Enjoy this app

    I am really enjoying this app my only wish was to link in my email
  • Great app

    By Torreongolf
    Easy to use
  • Used to be great

    By RegS4
    I used this app all the time but now I have to pay way to much money to used what I used to get. And to try to schedule an appointment is much harder than before. Changes/improvements don’t lay out very well and seem harder to use. And now my old pocket informant app shuts down every time I try to use it. Too expensive.
  • Much Better

    By JZCal
    Until today's update, 5.20 (50330), I had been staying with v4 but the view picker improvement finally convinces me to migrate up. Nice work guys! It's pretty much all there for me, and I don't object to the pricing at all. Update 2/23/18: the latest version has the old bugs. I made a change to a setting and Informant lost all saved Filters. I reset the database, via Advanced settings, and now in addition it thinks I need to pay again. Oh well, back to 4.xx and time to delete 5.
  • I retired, so why use an organizer?

    By AllGone
    I retired from an office job after 28 years. Correction I retired to something, yes a life revolving around my own leisure time. Pocket Informant just got better around the same time I started planning my leisure activities, construction on my new home, time with my grand baby - well you got the picture. 5 five stars baby - I’m a spur-of-the- moment type of guy and this awesome app helps to keep me well organized.
