Mobile market leader, WebIS Inc. today is pleased to announce a major
update to its Calendaring/Task application for the iPhone, Pocket
Informant. This release adds event location mapping, a new column-style
week view, the ability to email tasks and events, several user interface
enhancements and sync improvements.
While other apps focus on either solely calendaring or tasks, Pocket
Informant stands out among the productivity apps on the iPhone by
merging full-featured task management with robust calendaring in one
app. Among the several new features added to version 1.3 is one called
"Event Location Mapping". This feature allows you to plot the location
of your events on a map view within the app. This can be done on a
per-event basis, or you can plot all events for Today all at once.
Additionally, from the map view, users can tap an icon that will take
them into the iPhone Google Maps app to plot directions to their event.
WebIS released the iPhone version of their popular application Pocket
Informant a little over a year ago. "We now have Pocket Informant on
three mobile platforms and we’re thrilled with the response we’ve had
from our iPhone customers over this past year" says Alex Kac, CEO. "And
between the iPad and iPhone OS 4, we’re very excited about our roadmap
ahead of us for the upcoming year."
