  • The best calendar app… Ever!

    By RickW352
    This is the most flexible, easy to use and eye appealing calendar app I have ever used. It was highly recommended by iPhone Life Magazine, and I fully understand why. Great app!
  • Excellent organizer

    By DoEpic.PR
    I’ve used this calendar for years and years. Tried others and keep coming back to it!
  • No repeating alerts

    By Rod2526
    Still no repeating alerts, a feature found on similar apps for the last several years
  • Perfect!

    By isabelsauce
    It’s amazing !! Perfect .. not like any other calendar
  • I love this app but...

    By B_luv35
    I have used this app for years but a previous version. I purchased add-ons for the app & then they switched to a subscription. I can & still use the previous version but if if want to use anything but the calendar I have to pay the subscription. You can’t even sync the app without a subscription. I love the templates of the older versions & absolutely despise the triggers. Triggers don’t contain many of the options like categories, alarms.
  • Frustration...

    By Rikki Mikki
    I have used and lived PI for years, but am increasingly frustrated when the app automatically changes the time zone of events in my calendar. I'm tired of having to double check my events to make sure PI hasn't changed the time/zone since the event was entered. Super frustrated. Searching for alternatives...
  • Good Beginnings

    By hho26bw
    I like the calendar and tasks in one application with views showing both jointly. Needs some more polish to customize the side and title bars. Events need smart filters based on tags. The quick entry pop up for new tasks and events is currently based on natural language entry which is great for those that work well with it but I need the structure of fill-in-the-blank and dropdown lists entry boxes to prevent workflow interruptions. Overall I would highly recommend Informant MAC and iOS.
  • Everything deleted

    By Velicydee
    I’ve been using this app for my business appointments for a few months and I have loved it but this morning I woke up and all my appointments were gone. Not one has saved. Is there a way to back it up?
  • Going downhill?

    By Lutzbone
    I have used PI for many years, and have yet to find anything that touches it in terms of customization and flexibility, especially for the price. It works great most of the time. That said, things seem to be going downhill just a bit. Here are my thoughts: The good: 1) You can customize this app to work with almost any organization system you use (or dream up). You can even use different aspects of different systems. (e.g. Franklin Covey priorities, but with a GTD inbox, which is my setup) I’m unaware of anything that comes close to this level of flexibility. 2) Sync is generally reliable with only a few glitches that usually sort themselves out. I make it a habit to clear out my completed tasks; that alone has helped the sync reliability greatly. I’d love to keep an archive/diary of completed tasks on all my devices but I don’t really need it that often, and it’s all backed up on my computer if I need to refer back to something I did a few months ago. 3) $25 a year is a good price for the service they offer. I am happy to pay for a quality product and to support a developer who cares. 4) This seems to be a small company run by good, dedicated people. I’ve only had to contact support a handful of times and they’ve been spot on. The CEO himself has responded to my issues at least once. The bad: 1) Informant 5 for me is a downgrade from Informant 4. It was pretty much perfect, and then had to “improve” it (which unfortunately happens to every app - I’m looking at you, iCal -> Calendars/Reminders!) Pretty much the only improvement for me from v4 to v5 is dark mode. Even after using v5 since it came out, I still miss the v4 interface and still find myself going back to it. Specifically, I miss the in-app badges (not the badge on the iOS home screen, but the badges within PI). I also prefer the old customizable tab navigation in v4 compared to the “home screen” setup in v5. Swiping left or right to access shortcuts in v4 was way more elegant than the “wheel” they introduced in v5. I wish PI 4 had dark mode; then I would just use it all the time and ignore PI 5 altogether. Happily, both versions can coexist and I can go back and forth with no issues. (knock on wood! v4 is discontinued 😕) 2) The Mac version, although it continues to improve, still feels a little “beta-ish” compared to the iOS app. Changing priorities doesn’t always work, sometimes when you drag and drop things, they don’t go where you put them, there is no undo (!), Evernote sync crashes the app, etc. There are a lot of little details, none of them really annoying enough to warrant a support ticket on its own, but they all add up to make the Mac app feel half-baked compared to the generally rock-solid iOS app. 3) Informant event locations don’t play nicely with the native iOS/Mac calendar location services. When I add a location to an event in PI (Mac or iOS) and then look at it in the native iOS/Mac calendar, it doesn’t populate as a location (meaning “time to leave” and other native iOS location-based features don’t work). I think maybe it’s because PI adds longitude/latitude coordinates to the location, which confuses the iOS/Mac system - or maybe it’s something else to do with the formatting of the location field. Anyway, the solution is to edit the event in the native Mac/iOS app and enter/edit the location there. Then all features work as expected. A minor annoyance. 4) I get the feeling that their support is a little overwhelmed/understaffed/underpaid compared to the early days. It takes them a bit longer to respond and their responses are not as well thought-out as I remember in the past. They are starting to lose that small company feel. A lot of people have complained about them switching to a subscription model. I get that that’s annoying but also understand that they need to keep the lights on and at the end of the day, $25 a year really isn’t that much money for what you get. As I said, I have no problem supporting good people making useful stuff. My concern is that they’re starting to feel like a bigger company with a less personal touch, but their product, especially the Mac app, still has a “home-baked” science-fair-project feel. Check out the developer responses to a lot of the complaints on here, and you will probably notice that they don’t seem to be listening with the intent to understand and help, but rather they seem to be listening with the intent to reply and defend their choices. Unfortunately this approach further entrenches their mistakes, rather than allowing them to learn from them. Overall, I will stay with Informant for the foreseeable future, as they offer a fantastic product at an incredible value. But I am always on the lookout for something better. I wish Life Balance by Llamagraphics was still around or could be integrated with PI in some way. That would be amazing.
  • I like the layout

    By Jvojtek
    This is exactly what I needed. To be able to visualize the events of the day while still in full month view. But I really really wish they had an option to share calendar with others so that others could see my schedule. Maybe there is a way but I could not find it. If that became an option I would change my rating to 5 stars
