[prMac.com] Cedar Park, Texas - Fanatic Software announces the latest update for the award-winning application, Pocket Informant providing a major refresh of its user-interface along with a redesigned pricing structure. We've provided the customer with the power to choose only the features they need right now and optionally add more later as they grow with product. Users can now use the calendar for free, purchase individual "feature packs", or use all premium features for free when subscribing to Informant Sync.
In addition, Informant has received some major new functionality:
* Refreshed user interface. It's been cleaned up and streamlined for an elegant and professional look - It's not just pretty though. The added functionality makes Pocket Informant a vital part of personal organization
* A brand new Focus View with a 31-day ribbon date bar giving you the ability to plan into the future
* The ETA is now shown as a status bar that you can call upon for driving directions, but is not visually blocking any view of your Event details
* Settings are now searchable to quickly find exactly what you need to customize
* Spotlight support for iOS 9 : Global search of events, tasks, and notes makes sure you always can find your information anytime, anywhere
* Multi-level tasks let you visualize your task list with even more precision
* Full support for Apple Calendar and Reminder alarms mean that you get the power of Informant when opening the alarm
* Many more major refreshes to all aspects of our interface focusing on ease of use
"I know that there are hundreds of calendar and tasks apps out there, but what makes Informant unique and compelling for our users is that we are the only app that integrates a real GTD-based Task manager and a powerful professional level calendar into one app, along with Notes and Contacts." CEO Alex Kac said. "Our customers believe that juggling between apps for calendar, task, and note management is a detriment to productivity. Informant lets you see the entirety of your life at once. Manage it easily. Across platforms. You aren't tied down to one way of doing things. We designed Informant with over 15 years of productivity experience and that shows in the details."
Pocket Informant sets the standard for what people should expect out of a mobile calendaring and task management app. Informant led the way on iOS by being the first app to integrate your tasks onto your calendar and allowed everyone to have a comprehensive view of their entire day, week or month. Since then, it has ushered numerous other innovations like location-based alerts for tasks, Smart Filters for tasks, event & task templates, saved sets of Calendar Filters and much more. Most recently, Informant has made the leap to the Mac and has begun a new era of helping people stay productive across all their devices.
The standout feature of Informant is our vaunted "Focus View". The Focus View gives you a daily perspective on your schedule for the next 30 days using any combination of events, tasks, notes, attendees, and our powerful rule-filtering Smart Filters. Furthermore, the Focus View can show you the next event you need to drive to, when you should leave to get there on time, and how long a drive it will be. Its updated in real-time for traffic and daily conditions. Tap on the ETA to bring up a map of your whole day's events and locations!
