WebIS has launched an updated version of Pocket Informant for the iPhone. As I’ve mentioned in the past, Pocket Informant provides iPhone users with a highly customizable calendar and contact app. The company also makes Windows Mobile and BlackBerry versions of the software.

There’s a huge list of new features and bug fixes in Pocket Informant 1.3. But here are a few of the big ones:

  • Add map locations for events
  • Email tasks and events
  • New landscape column week view
  • Add Task button in the Celandar and Today views

There are also improvements that should improve synchronization with Google Calendar. You can find a complete list of changes in the release notes. And you can find a more detailed look at the mapping feature at the WebIS blog.

Pocket Informant 1.3 for the iPhone is available from the iTunes App Store for $12.99. There’s also a free version available with limited features, but it hasn’t been updated since March — so it doesn’t including location mapping or the other new features.
