Informant 4.02 continues to refine the already exciting 4.0 release. Thanks for your feedback as we continue to build the best calendaring app available on the App Store offering you features you won't find anywhere else.

Here are the highlights of what's new in 4.02:

  • TravelAssist™ events in Day View/Column Week View now show in the all day area
  • Natural Language Entry via Quick Entry now works correctly with TravelAssist™
  • Birthday events from the iOS Birthday calendar now show the contact picture next to the birthday
  • On iPad, when you swipe in the mini-months from the left edge, they now remain docked on the view. Swipe to the left to undock.
  • Day View/Column Week View: several visual tweaks to improve Dynamic Text Size behavior, task priorities, and improved double tap new event creation
  • Day View/Column Week View now allows you to use a two finger swipe down on an event to change its duration
  • Added an option for Month View to display "Future Months" with a light border, dashed border, or shaded cell. This helps identify the current month more easily.

  • On iPhone we now show 5 weeks in Scroll by Month mode instead of 6
  • Calendar Store by SchedJoules now shows the price and what is included more clearly

  • Improved iOS 8 support
  • Today View now remembers the vertical timeline spacing you give it via the two-finger pinch gesture
  • Notes in the event/task detail are now word wrapped
  • Improved recurring event printing
  • Templates have been improved to fix some user interface and save issues
  • When using Mini-Text with background color, multi-day timed events now are colored instead of using the white background
  • Fixed batch editing of alarms for tasks
  • Fixed an issue where in some circumstances a filter would get reset, and a long delay could occur in Month View
  • Fixed Context Location Alerts
  • Fixed an issue with notebooks not being listed in the Notebooks page if all the notebooks are in a single stack and have no other root level notebooks
  • Fixed an issue in Month View not showing all day events when using "Time Bar" mode
  • Fixed an issue with reordering checklist items multiple times within an editor session
  • Continued improvements to multiple sync engines
  • We now alert you if there are too many non-fatal errors in sync

Pocket Informant and the iOS 8 Beta
Posted by Wesley Sandlin on 03 June 2014 12:41 PM

Apple released the first iOS 8 beta on June 2nd.  This is an exciting time as the new operating system brings with it a host of new features and changes.  However the new operating system is a beta and we do not provide support for Informant running on beta operating systems.  iOS 7 is still the currently supported operating system.  If you are an early adopter and have installed the iOS 8 beta and you are experiencing difficulties with Pocket Informant please use our forums to let us know of any troubles, but understand that many issues are directly due to betas and we cannot provide you with any response at this time.

Pocket Informant will be iOS 8 ready when iOS 8 is officially released. We look forward to what iOS 8 will be bringing to the table and the features it will allow us to bring to you!
