[prMac.com] Cedar Park, Texas - Mobile PDA and Smartphone market leader, WebIS Inc., has announced that it will be releasing its incredibly popular PIM, Pocket Informant, for the iPhone and iPod Touch in Fall 2008. Pocket Informant is the next generation in Personal Daily Management for the iPhone, and Windows Mobile. This new release will leverage eight years of mobile experience to bring a fresh perspective to the iPhone user.
Pocket Informant was the first full PIM (personal information management) for Windows Mobile in 2000, and listed at number 6 of all sales for WinMobile apps. "We have a long history of creating powerful and easy to use solutions for the mobile professional". says Alex Kac, CEO/Founder of WebIS. "When we set out to design our iPhone version we sat down and designed an application that iPhone users could love. To be honest, we are Apple fans here. All of our desktops/laptops are Macs; our servers are XServes; some of us have even worked at Apple. So we know what Mac OS X users like, expect, and deserve." Pocket Informant for the iPhone is truly focused on making productivity fun and easy, yet focused.
Pocket Informant for the iPhone will ship with its own databases for Tasks and Appointments. To sync this data requires a network connection and to provide alarms Pocket Informant will send push notifications from a server. With all these considerations in mind WebIS has designed a solution that is flexible, easy to use, and secure.
