Mac OS X Desktop Informant

Posted by Alex Kac - CEO/Founder, 07 March 2014 - * * * * * · 3,372 views

For a long time we've had people ask us to write a desktop version of Pocket Informant. We've made some comments from time to time that we've been interested in that as well and even some comments that we're actually working on it. This isn't an announcement, just the facts. Recently however we've started getting some negative feedback that we've "promise...

Pocket Informant "Start Page" idea.

I get this request occasionally and I always shoot it down because ultimately I believe it cannot be done in a way that is intuitive to users. https://webis.uservo...e4ffa68a3d241b5

Apple buys TestFlight

Posted by Alex Kac - CEO/Founder, 21 February 2014 - - - - - - · 1,099 views

Its old news by now, but Apple has purchased TestFlight  and I wanted to write a bit about my thoughts on the matter. WebIS uses TestFlight currently for both our Android and iOS beta programs. TestFlight's Android testing has been shuttered while their iOS testing is closed off a bit more.  We love TestFlight so we're not anticipating to c...

A few answers on Free

Posted by Alex Kac - CEO/Founder, 30 January 2014 - * * * * * · 1,682 views

I've heard a few misconceptions recently about what the move to free means to them. Some people think that by being an in-app purchase they'll have to buy again when moving to a new device, or that if you bought PI when it was Pro that you can't restore purchases if you get a new device and so on. None of that is correct. 
In fact, this move g...

Free - why?

Raise your hands here who likes Freemium apps? Anyone? Anyone? <crickets> Neither do we. That's why we've made sure Pocket Informant 3.5 is not a freemium app. What is freemium? Freemium is the concept of a free app that in order to keep using it you have to buy coins or whatever to keep playing. That's not Pocket Informant 3.5.
In fa...

Pocket Informant is now FREE to download and try out! We know how wonderful Pocket Informant is, and you know - but there are millions of potential users out there that look at our price tag and just don't even bother. We don't feel our price is too high - but its a barrier for sure. We also sometimes hear a bit of confusion from people regarding Go! vs P...

Swipe to Edit, Quick Edit

Posted by Alex Kac - CEO/Founder, in iphone, ipad, ios7, informant, productivity 20 January 2014 - * * * * * · 11,851 views

Pocket Informant is all about how to make you more productive and our design is all about how to keep a clean, uncluttered view with powerful tools. We've introduced the two finger swipe down for Quick Entry (http://pi-videos.s3....Press_Clear.mp4 ) recently as an example. However one of our favorite features (and ripe for a bit...

Filters Part 2: The Sequel

tasks, iPhone, iPad, focus and 2 more...
Conventional wisdom says that the sequel is almost never as good as the original.  You have to figure out how to capture the magic of the first one, but offer something compelling and new at the same time.  A few months ago, I wrote a post titled “Filters Part 1” which was a riveting overview of our handy “Saved Filter” f...

iOS Alarms

Posted by Alex Kac - CEO/Founder, 14 December 2013 - - - - - - · 3,442 views

One of the many requests I see is for Pocket Informant to "take over" the alarms from iOS events and reminders. I can definitely see the desire for this and its something some other apps have done with great success. We've been experimenting with this for almost 2 years and haven't released it yet as a user option yet. Why not? Lets start with the reason...
