[prMac.com] WebIS Inc. is currently exhibiting at MacWorld Expo in San Francisco at booth 906 and is announcing a major upgrade coming in April 2011: Pocket Informant 2.0. Pocket Informant takes productivity to a new level by bringing great event and task management together in a single app. WebIS is showing version 2.0 at MacWorld which adds Notes, Contacts, and more to extend our lead on the competition. WebIS is giving away 3 iPads and free gifts at MacWorld Expo 2011.
Pocket Informant 2.0 is a major upgrade to our flagship application bringing an overhauled storage engine, integrated Notes and Contacts views, Task Smart Groups, and an improved user interface. Our engineers have been hard at work on this release for a while now and we expect to release in April 2011. WebIS is giving sneak-peaks at our website and a preview at our booth at the MacWorld Expo.
"Version 2.0 really excited me because we've been able to finally answer 'Yes!' to a lot of the requests we've had in the last year," says Alex Kac, CEO. "We've shown the preview to the press at MacWorld and received a lot of praise on the new features, so I'm really excited about getting this into the hands of users as soon as we can."
Along with the sneak-peak of version 2.0, WebIS is also providing presentations at booth 906 to help people use Pocket Informant to the fullest as well as the iPad raffle and gifts to anyone who can show Pocket Informant running on their device.
