Pocket Informant for iPhone has been submitted to Apple!

 Task Root WeekView                               Just received some information form WebIS, “We are very excited about finally submitting Pocket Informant for iPhone to Apple yesterday. We’ve spent a lot of time making sure that version 1.0 of our application has the quality you expect from WebIS and the features you need to manage your day. Pocket Informant is an exciting application on the iPhone and even though we’re really proud of this first version, we have a lot more coming!”

With over eight years of mobile calendaring experience, we have delivered simply the best personal information manager available on the iPhone. As powerful as this release is, version 1.0 is just the beginning of a much larger vision we have for this product. Take a moment to look over what we have delivered this release…and we’re just getting started.

1.0 Features Include:

  • A calendar built the way an iPhone Calendar should be
  • Today, Month, Day, Week, Agenda, Todo, and Search views
  • Swipe between Months, Days, and Weeks
  • Easily jump to any date in Day and Month views
  • Timebars to show your free/busy time at a glance
  • Expanded detail view to see events and todos on any day
  • Todos integrated in the Calendar Views
  • Full Search of Contacts, Todos, and Calendar items
  • Send Appointment Meeting Requests
  • Getting-Things-Done (GTD) management of Todos
  • Franklin Covey ABC/1-99 Prioritization of Todos
  • Filters to quickly find active, due, overdue, and completed Todos
  • Today View to show your current appointments, Todos and meeting attendees
  • Over-the-air syncing with Google Calendar and Toodledo
  • Starring/Flagging Todos

How does Pocket Informant differ from other Todo apps?
Proper todo management is essential, but it’s only part of the picture. Pocket Informant is a full featured PIM, so it lets you focus on everything you do in a day – not just your todo list. Bringing your appointments and todos together outperforms isolated calendar and todo management systems. Pocket Informant is designed to not force you into any one method of doing things. For example you can use our Todo View as rigidly or freely as you want, using GTD or Franklin Covey, or your own system. Pocket Informant also lets you sync your information with popular online services so you can easily access your data with any desktop computer or share it with others.

So what’s next?
Apple reviews every application prior to making them available in the iTunes App Store. We have been working closely with Apple over the past year to make sure Pocket Informant adheres to the rules and guidelines Apple has put in place for iPhone applications. While this is no promise that it will go through smoothly, we are optimistic. Feel free to email Apple asking them for Pocket Informant to be approved quickly!
