  • App

    By Cash billion
    This is an awesome app and literally seems to ha e all of the features you need for a calendar and task app with reminders. There is quite a lot of information and I wish there was a quick reference guide he’ll streamline the learning curve. It is literally all the calendar and task apps in one. Great job!!
  • Good app - my Name I’d Location Does Not Work

    By Joseph_Joseph
    12/8/18. The app has lots of very nice and elegant features. Niece to view and color code adjustable. Used it for about three weeks so far. There are a few features that are not intuitive and I discovered some by trial and error. (1). I wrote this review to inform the developers that when I use the “name of location” feature to provide a map location for god use, it never works. Upon saving a full address, and selecting the location it takes me to a world map of Africa and stays there. I tried other names, and commas separation, but it would not show me the map location. I would then expect a GO button to have the gps feature take me there. I will raise the starts to FOUR after this is fixed. (2). Please make it more intuitive as to the options within the app. I’ll raise the stars to FIVE after that time. (3). Also needed, is a visual indication on the map for “travel time”. Please add a “travel to destination”, and also a “travel from destination”. This will help allow for “leave” time and “return” time in planning. As this is, it really has lots of useful and thoughtful features that are standard and some that were not expected but yet are great to use. I am working to get to use this as my primary calendar, but it is taking time since it is full of features. Thank you for a great app.
  • No templates like I had in Android version?

    By Dar K.
    I used informant for years in Android because I use templates with multiple alarms for my work schedule. I just moved to iPhone XS and I have to move to a different app now because iPhone Informant doesn't have this. Too bad.
  • Icons

    By buddmatthew
    I wish the icons would transfer from one device to the next. I like using the icons but hate that I have to complete on both my tablet and my phone individually. Thank You, Matt
  • Unusable

    By Kevin_in_cs
    Menu options (cancel and set) disappear in landscape mode and stay that way even when changed to portrait mode. (The “save these filters” button does nothing.) If I have to close the app and reopen it to get the menu screen to go away, I wonder about investing my time in a calendar that may have other problems.
  • The Best

    By Dr. L.
    This is by far the most robust and flexible task and event manager in the App Store. I don't know why it hasn't received more attention from Apple. I can't wait to give it a fifth star if/when they allow you to rearrange tasks by drag and drop.
  • Somethings I like, Somethings I hate

    By Rod2526
    Still waiting for that functional watch app that people started paying for over a year ago. It will be another year before they have a functional watch app. They basically want you to support this app while it's still in development. Basically no watch app, agenda view jitters like crazy when you mark a task complete and it doesn't return to the correct place in the timeline, the week view is horrible as it's all jumbled and impossible to decipher appointments, instead of including tasks in chronological order with your events, they place them at the bottom which makes no sense. Avoid this app. If it wasn't a work in progress it might be worth the cost. Update 7/19: since yesterday's update the agenda view doesn't scroll to the current day when opening the app. Ends up between two different days. Also still can't get events to show on watch complication. It's a joke that I have to restar my watch to get events to show in the complication. Update Reinstalled to see if any improvement has been made. Had to restart my Apple Watch 3 several times to get the complication to show the next scheduled event. Week view is still way too cluttered and very difficult to see. Need the ability to change fonts Obviously there are some good things with this app, but the negatives prevent me from resubscribing. Here's what this app needs and I know it can be done because my app of choice, Calengoo has most of these features: 1. Nagging alarms for events and tasks (yes calengoo has this) 2. More detailed week agenda view (yes calengoo has a far superior week agenda view) 3. Tasks on Apple Watch complication (Fantastical has this) Add these things and I subscribe for year. Until then staying with Calengoo
  • Excellent App, but I can’t subscribe

    By The. Eat
    Calendar apps—I’ve used them all and this is the best. 5 Stars, easy. But to the developers, I’m happy to pay a 1-time fee for this app but there isn’t enough to justify a monthly sub. I’d pay $10 for this app, though. For now, I do not use it because I am red/green colorblind and you have locked alternative colors behind a subscription paywall that I cannot justify. Great product—keep up the good work.
  • Best Calendar/To Do App There Is!

    By Kwftx
    I have been using this app for my calendar, projects, and to do lists since 2009. Bought it for my iPhone 3GS and have been happy with it ever since. The interface is crisp and professional looking, not cartoonish and cheap like so many of the others I’ve seen. I appreciate all the customization options. I like to have my to do items also show up on the monthly calendar screen so I see when certain things are due in a month view. Little things like that are greatly appreciated. The app gets regular updates and I also subscribe to the annual subscription so I can sync everything and have it up to date on my iPad and iMac as well. 9 years and this app has not disappointed. The only thing I would like to see when it comes to options is more variety in the color scheme and themes.
  • Sadly clunky interface on otherwise powerful app

    By ismilez
    I've been a paying user for many many years. (Palm girl) The previous iteration of this app (PI4) was 100% 5-stars all the way. This "overhauled" version is not as good and in the critical area of overall interface and time entry. Yes, they have improved it since the switch, but it is still not as good as PI4 (I know this because I have gone back to PI4 after using this for a bit, and have now returned b/c PI4 may no longer sync properly w/google). I worked so hard to customize everything in both versions, and they're definitely still better than every serious calendar app I've tried so far (4-5), but the breaking of some important features and the slow speed at which they're adding them back in is upsetting for those of us who have invested much $ & time into the apps. To their tech support's credit, they do respond to questions thoroughly and in a timely manner. Pretty much every time I contact them, I get a satisfactory response. :) If you want ultimate customization and the most detailed month view out there, this is your app. And, until I find something better, it's mine, too. Here's hoping they bring the interface back to its "glory days" soon.
