Pocket Informant 2.0 for iOS

Pocket Informant from webIS is a personal information management app that lets you manage your calendar and contacts on mobile devices running iOS, Android, or BlackBerry OS.

Once upon a time the Windows Mobile app actually functioned as a complete¬†replacement for Microsoft’s PIM apps by offering a contact manager as well. Now it looks like contact management is coming soon to the iOS app.

WebIS founder Alex Kac has posted a preview video showing Pocket Informant 2.0 on an iPhone. The biggest change is the new contact manager which lets you view contacts by name, or by category. You can also scroll through contacts by viewing large photos of each person in your address book (assuming you have photos associated with those people.

The user interface has been redesigned, but the app still offers a number of ways to view calendars including week, month, and agenda views. The task manager also lets you sort tasks by folders, tags, or other criteria and manage your to do lists, task due dates, and other data.

Overall Pocket Informant 2.0 looks like a huge update and hopefully it will be available in the App Store soon. For now it’s still under development.
