Pocket Informant Pro, the popular all-in-one calendar and task management app, has just received its huge 3.0 update. And I do mean huge. First and foremost, Pocket Informant 3.0 introduces a new flat and easy-to-use interface. The redesigned interface comes with customizable event and task row settings, a slide-out side panel for context-specific options, and an improved time zone picker. Along with the app's new interface comes a huge set of new features. These include natural language input, a Today view, weather support, checklists, project improvements, a rich text editor, and Evernote sync. Currently available for English only, Pocket Informant Pro's natural language input support lets you create events and tasks simply by entering natural-sounding phrases. (For another calendar app that has recently gained support for this feature, see Horizon Calendar 2.0 Brings Natural Language Input And Other Major Improvements.) Pocket Informant Pro 3.0 also lets you toggle between Today and Tomorrow, with the ability to customize relevant parameters. It also offers weather display in the Today, List, Week, and Month views via a $0.99 in-app purchase. With the new version of the app, you can now also create checklists for your tasks and add due dates, templates, and other details to projects. Furthermore, Pocket Informant Pro 3.0 lets you edit notes in plain or rich text and sync your notebooks, tags, notes, and attachments via Evernote. Pocket Informant Pro 3.0 also brings the following improvements:
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.1 or later, Pocket Informant Pro 3.0 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $14.99 download.
