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.

Need a task manager, not a taskmaster.

I see no advantage to Siri’s functioning as a habit tracker to remind me to make a note every day at 3 pm if I’m not going to remember a week from now that I made it. I’ve been using this app since my first Pocket PC. The notes feature does not, and never has, integrated well with the rest of the app. It’s always seemed like an afterthought.

I want to be able to see all my appointments, all my tasks and all my notes related to a given project on one screen. The closest I’ve been able to get is by creating a Smart Filter for the project and then setting Focus View to show the Smart Filter, Notes, plus some additional filtering of the calendar and tasks. But the notes feature is flaky. My notes either show up only on the date I create them or the date I pin them to. And I can’t filter the notes to be project specific in Focus View. One more feature that would be nice . . . convert a completed task to a note.

I have no problem with the subscription based model. I would pay just as much for a new paper planner every year. But it seems like the revenues collected go toward just trying to keep up with Apple’s bells and whistles and never delivering on features that should have been added years ago.
