[prMac.com] Cedar Park, Texas - Web Information Solutions today announces the next milestone of the ground-breaking Calendar/Task app for Mac OS X - Desktop Informant. This is a major update that includes support for El Capitan, a brand new Stacked Week View, as well as over a hundred improvements. Desktop Informant is the premier Calendar/Task planner for OS X, and with the companion products available on iOS and Android, it's the ONE app that gives professionals the power to stay truly organized no matter where they are.
Today's release of Informant is a testament to 15 years of experience creating software focused on personal productivity, calendaring and task management. By integrating full-featured task management within your calendar, you get a much more complete picture of your entire day. WebIS was the first to pioneer this approach on iOS and they continue to innovate with this latest milestone release for Mac OS X. Informant allows you to categorize events and tasks as precisely or broadly as you like using icons, tags, custom colors, and more. Combine that with a number of different ways to view and filter your data, including the new Stacked Week View and you'll see why Informant is truly unique.
While discussing some of the ways Informant stands out from the competition, Alex Kac, the Founder and CEO said "We are the only complete calendaring and task management solution that covers 3 major platforms: Android, iOS and OS X. And with the addition of gSyncIt by Fieldston Software, we also reach a 4th platform by allowing users to sync their Informant data to Outlook on Windows. In fact, Informant is the leader when it comes to different ways you can sync your data. Of course, Informant supports Apple Calendar and Reminders data, but it also syncs directly with Google Calendar, Google Task, Toodledo and our very own Informant Sync service. I actually think that's all a pretty big deal."
"With our customer-friendly pricing", Alex Kac continued "I also really like the fact that we've chosen to be a single Universal app on iOS. I've noticed that some of the other apps in our space still haven't chosen to be Universal - but I just think our approach is a better overall customer experience than having to buy and deal with separate iPad and iPhone versions."
Current features include:
* A stunning interface designed specifically for Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite and 10.11 El Capitan
* El Capitan support including Split Screen Full Screen mode
* Tabbed Interface to switch between different views or even the same views with different filters
* Quick Entry allows you to create a hot-key shortcut to quickly create tasks or events
* "Focus View" with integrated Day View
* Customizable Days, Week, Month, and Year Calendar Views
* A full featured GTD-focused Tasks View with Projects, Contexts, multi-level sub-tasks and controls to filter and group your tasks
* Templates to create common events and tasks quickly
* Sync with Apple Calendar, Reminders, Google Calendar and Tasks, Toodledo, and our own Informant Sync
* and more!
The bottom line is that Informant provides our customers with a value and power that are unmatched by any other solution on the market. Over the past 15 years, we have worked closely and directly with our customers to meet their planning needs. We are productivity fanatics and we're already hard at work on our next free update for OS X that will bring even more value to all our existing customers.
* Mac running OS X 10.10 or later
* 100MB free
Pricing and Availability:
Informant for OS X is $29.99 (USD) as an "Early Access" purchase. "Early Access" acknowledges that our customers expect a 1.0 Desktop app to have feature-parity with our award-winning Pocket Informant on iOS, but that it takes time to incorporate all expected features; so instead of selling a 1.0 that does not have feature parity and charging for each upgrade, we have broken 1.0 up into multiple Milestones, each being production-level, free for all Early Access customers and each taking one step closer to feature parity.
