[prMac.com] Cedar Park, Texas - WebIS today announces the release, and immediate availability, of a major update to their award-winning iOS application, PI Pro, which offers complete integration of Calendar, Tasks, Notes and Contacts. The main concept is simple: bring together everything about your day into one location, allow users to customize virtually every part of the app, and make it beautiful and simple to use. Version 3.1 brings even more functionality, with new features added and existing features made even better. Evernote integration was added with the prior update, but in this release it is expanded and improved upon to allow full use of popular Evernote features - directly from PI Pro.
WebIS is working to ensure that PI Pro is ready for iOS 7 soon after it's release with some iOS 7 exclusive features

"The new integration in PI Pro has not only made that app more valuable to me in my daily routine but has also made Evernote even more important to my work flow. That's exactly what new features should do when they bring two powerful apps together." - James Kendrick, ZDNet
"While at Apple's developer conference my team and I spent some time with our friends at Evernote and the feedback we received there drove much of our focus for version 3.1. We rewrote our rich text editor, integrated Evernote Reminders, added notes to the calendar, and continued our work on a clear, simple interface" says Alex Kac, Founder and CEO of WebIS. "With strengthening the existing features that 3.0 introduced like Natural Language Entry, Weather, and Checklists; I believe strongly that Pocket Informant is the best replacement Calendar, Task, and Notes application on iOS. Our customers can rely on the best customer service, the best engineering, and in the end, the best app. And if they have a mixture of Android and iOS devices they can extend that experience and sync between platforms seamlessly with Pocket Informant Online."
There are many more features and improvement that have been added throughout. WebIS has also been keeping an eye on the development of iOS 7, and is working to ensure that PI Pro is ready for the release of this upcoming operating system with some iOS 7 exclusive features.
You are encouraged you to take a look for yourself, and see how PI Pro can benefit you!
