Sillicon Slopes, Utah – Fanatic Software, (SLC, UT) developers of the wildly popular Pocket Informant, is announcing an update for Informant 5 (Release 5.2), making it even easier to manage your busy personal and professional life. Informant is a cross-platform planner app that combines your Calendar, Projects, Notes and an advanced task manager in a single app. Although previous versions of Pocket Informant were historically 4 star rated apps, Informant 5.0 has been receiving an average of 2.5 stars.
Version 5.2 has received over 1100 reviews in its first 7 days and has average reviews worldwide of 4.6 and 4.7 in the US. Informant 5.2 has some significant changes such as a new Shortcut bar that enables one-tap access between most commonly used views, and many improvements to the Triggers feature (formerly Templates). This release also addresses a number of small fixes and crashes that some users were experiencing and greatly improves the watchOS app.
“We have been listening to customers and working very hard to get Informant back to a 4 star rating” said” Keith Norris, CEO “Based on over 1100 reviews in the first 5 days, this is the release that puts Informant solidly back in the 4-5 star average rating.”
Informant is one of the easiest calendar apps to setup because it accesses all your native Apple data and has numerous sync options. The 30-day calendar view uses tiny-type and is much more useful than the default Apple calendar. The project management feature in Informant surpasses the native reminders app with features such as sub-tasks, and start AND end dates.
Pocket Informant has won numerous awards such as “Best Calendar apps for iPhone and iPad” at MacWorld 2015, and “Best Business and Productivity app” from Mobile App Awards in 2016-2017. Release notes for version 5.2 are available on the company website.
Informant is a better value for many people because it offers a single purchase for iPhone and iPad. There is a macOS version that requires a separate purchase ($39.99, on sale now) and you can subscribe to the Informant Sync service ($25/yr) to keep all your data in sync across your devices. For a limited time, if you sign up for the Informant Sync service you can get a free access to the iPhone and iPad versions. Or, you can try a free 2-week trial of the full version of the app by configuring the optional Informant Sync service.
