Pocket Informant 1.5 for Android will look much better on tablets


Pocket Informant 1.5

A few days ago WebIS released a minor update to Pocket Informant which allowed the calendar and task manager application to run on tablets with Android 3.1 Honeycomb. But to be honest, all you get is the smartphone interface blown up to fit on a much larger display.

Now WebIS CEO Alex Kac says testing is underway for a major update which really will be designed with tablets in mind. The update is scheduled for a public launch around the end of July, but you can see a few screenshots in the Pocket Informant for Android forums.

There’s a new multi-pane view which you can use to look at multiple views at the same time. For instance, you can see a month or week view on the right and a multi-month view on the left. There are also tabs on the right for flipping between calendar and task views.

Pocket Informant 2.0 for iPhone is also in the works.
