Pocket Informant tablet

WebIS has released an update for Pocket Informant for Android which adds support for tablets running Google Android 3.1 Honeycomb. Unlike the default Google Calendar app that comes with Android, Pocket Informant bundles a To Do list with your calendar, allowing you to sync your appointments with Google Calendar and your tasks with ToodleDo.

Pocket Informant also allows allows you to see your month-at-a-glance calendar in a split-screen view, with appointment details in the bottom and a full month calendar filling out the top of the screen.

Honestly, on a phone, Pocket Informant does a much better job of organizing my information than Google Calendar. But the tablet interface looks like a blown up version of the smartphone version while the tablet version of Google Calendar has actually been redesigned to show you more information at a glance on the larger display.

While I’m a big fan of Pocket Informant on my phone, I’m not sure I’d spend the $9.99 on the app for a tablet. Fortunately if you pay once you can install Pocket Informant on multiple devices, so if you have a phone and a tablet and you’re already a Pocket Informant user, there’s no reason not try the latest version on your Motorola XOOM or Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
