Master Calendar App

I became sold on handheld PDA's, as they were called back then, during the reign of Palm. The best aspect of the platform, from my opinion was the way contacts, calendars, and notes were all in one application. I could set an appointment with a colleague in a matter of moments. Then when I clicked on the appointment, my colleagues name was linked to the contact portion, so that I could click on their name and get all their contact info. I miss that. So far there are not comparable options on the iOS platform. There are a couple of apps that come very close, but none has hit the mark yet. The one that I use daily is Pocket Informant. I have it loaded on my iPhone and on my iPad, and they sync between one another through the cloud. It keeps track of my calendar, contacts, notes and todo's within the app. It has all the things you look for in a calendar app. Yearly, monthly, weekly, daily and list views. I can access my contacts but unfortunately can only add them to an appointment by inviting them to it. They then receive an e-mail reminder, which actually is a nice feature in itself.

There are a multitude of ways to organize tasks (todo's).... in folders, with tags, assigning contexts or starring them. Tasks are tracked based on the due date you set when entering it, so you are alerted if tasks are overdue or nearing that point.

All in all, this is a very comprehensive app and is extremely useful. Well worth the
