Ratings and Reviews
Excellent Combination of Functionality and Flexibility
Having used OmniFocus & Todoist and tried a number of other task/event management apps, I am back to PI as the most robust, comprehensive and customizable app of its kind. There are some anomalies between the iOS and Mac versions however, the overall level of functionality and flexibility within the PI application in general is top notch. The iOS version feels somewhat more thought out.
I appreciate that PI is one of the only apps to my knowledge that still offers a Franklin Covey task view option while the built in Actions, combined with Tags and Contexts also allows wide flexibility for those who prefer GTD or a variation. The level of overall customisation makes PI one of the most personalised apps available. That level of customization requires time to learn to best apply a setup and workflow that works for you. Worth the effort. Have only contacted support on one occasion but response was quick and courteous. Thanks
Still needs a lot of work
I used Pocket informant in 2013 but became frustrated with the inability to prioritize tasks. Finally went back to paper planning due to lack of customizability. I decided to give digital planning another try, and being familiar with pocket informant tried it first. While the app is visually pleasing, and much easier to use, still unable to prioritize tasks. It would be super easy to drag and drop, especially since this is available in the project view. The tasks actually laid up and seem like they’re going to move, but then don’t stay re-ordered. Very frustrating. The notes section needs a lot of work. Unfortunately I’m going to have to continue to use Notability for this functionality. There’s no Apple Pencil support which is a big drawback. One nice thing is the ability to customize to GTD or Franklin Covey. However neither of these systems is conducive to putting in tasks quickly, which is why you need to be able to manually re-order tasks on the go. I’ve had to contact support twice, the first time I never got an answer, the second time their response was less than awesome since it was essentially sorry no but hey go re-posted on this website and give the engineers some ideas. If this were a free app that would be an acceptable response but I paid for a year subscription so I think maybe you could just forward my email on and save me the trip.
Love and hate
I’ve been using informant for years and I love the layout and most other features, however I’m getting frustrated enough there I am sadly looking for a different calendar app. My frustration mostly comes from constant sync issues. I payed the subscription price for informant sync and it absolutely does not sync between my devices no matter what I do. It also does not automatically update my subscription calendars and doesn’t update them manually either on the new app. On the old app I would unsubscribe and subscribe again whenever issues arose (not ideal, but I really wanted to keep using the app), but on the new app attempt to subscribe give me a statement that apple requires secure server use starting with HTTPS (which it does!!!!!!!!!) And the app completely just doesn’t recognize it. I also (on the new app) was not able to sign into my informant sync account that I payed for (it just tells me user not found - and I know my account info was correct), so I can’t use any of the ‘payed’ features (which by now are all the features). I am extremely disappointed. I used to love this app and it has become unusable for me. I am constantly worried that it’s not going to sync correctly and I’ll miss something important and I feel cheated after I payed for informant sync and can’t use that either. I can’t use a calendar app I can’t trust regardless of how much I love the layout.
Developer Response ,
Please contact support as you have many issues and misunderstandings happening and we can help you with them. If you try to login to an account from our website you are logging into the purchasing system so "account not found" is likely going to occur. It is stated that Informant Sync does not provide a web login. The "https" issue on a subscribed calendar is a known bug that we apologize for and will be fixing. The auto renewal via iTunes won't work automatically if you are still using the Informant 4 Informant Sync subscription. We can fix that for you in Support and explain how to update to the new and correct part number in iTunes to resolve this issue for you. Sync issues can be frustrating but they are usually very simple to address if you contact support. Most of the time a no sync issues is caused by the data not being assigned to the sync service. With the exception of the "https" issue I don't see anything here that support cannot resolve with one contact. Please let us have the opportunity to earn a 5 star review.
