Pocket Informant Update

Pocket Informant allows you to create and edit events, notes and tasks with a clean interface. The universal iOS app is your one stop place to create and review your tasks and appointments. The app was updated to version 4.52 to make it more reliable with iOS 8.

The ability to auto populate with contacts or templates is a powerful feature.

Also, you can use geofencing to filter your calendar or task based on where you are. You can get alerts as you arrive or depart locations.

A list of some of the newest features described by the developer appears below:

  • We now search all future iOS events and 15 years prior of iOS Events in addition to all Pocket Informant native events
