Pocket Informant HD

While the inbuilt Calendar app might be enough for most people for scheduling appointments and important dates, power users that are used to robust schedules on their desktop PCs will often find it a bit lacking in features.
Pocket Informant HD has been designed to take advantage of the iPad’s increased screen real estate to provide users with an experience that combines calendaring and task tracking into a single package.
Navigation within the app is smooth and effortless, with the user simply swiping between the months or tapping the calendar on the left page.
Icons can be assigned to individual events or tasks for easy tracking, and the app’s original TimeBar style can be used to see a visual outline of a day, week, or month.
When looking at a day’s activities, the entire screen is used to display the appointments and tasks together, removing the need to switch between the two.
While the daily view is conveniently designed to allow users to quickly see activities going on that day, the weekly view is also well designed and easy to track.
Pros: A professionally designed app that allows for a robust calendar and task tracking experience.
Cons: A little bit pricey compared to other apps in the same category.
Verdict: If you’ve been relying on the inbuilt Calendar app and want more functionality in your scheduling, then Pocket Informant HD could be the solution you’re looking for.
