    • Tips at startup

      Create a "Tips" interface that highlights new features and how to use them, one tip screen at a time, like some other apps do. Have it start automatically on each launch after an update until someone chooses"Don't Show Again". That would pop up a quick message telling them how to manually launch it in the future.

      • Mark events complete/missed

        Want to be able to mark events as complete or missed or at least be able to manually cross out individual past events to show that they were attended to and not just a past event wether attended or not. There is already the option to do so automatically for all past events but I want to be able to review the day or week and see which past events were missed or not attended so I can reschedule them if needs be. Thank you!

        • Shortcuts for views

          I often change between 'week' and 'agenda' views. I want one button for week and one button for agenda. Essentially - a one-click way of accessing 'week', 'agenda', or any other view the user might want.

          • Add INACTIVE/ACTIVE to Projects; Project View shows only ACTIVE Projects

            Develop a way for Informant show all projects and visually determine what projects are active and which ones are not. Status would be based on the status of the tasks

            • Reorder icons IPhone X

              Whether in minimized (one line of icons) or maximized (2 lines), it should be possible to alter the order of icons across screen bottom. This will help left handed and one handed users.

              • Make a list with marked free dates

                When I got asked for available dates i have to go to pocket informant and write down the free dates on a paper note or notepad-ish thing.
                It would be nice to make a kind of datelist from within pocket informant where you can assign a date (part of a day) to the clipboard so you can copy that in whatsapp or email.

                • Make More Accessible for the visually impaired

                  The application appears not to be 100% accessible with VoiceOver on iOS. Please make it fully compatible so that the visually impaired can benefit from all of the capabilities of the application.

                  • Scheduling of theme

                    Allow scheduling of themes. For example, an auto change like a Dark theme at sundown and and light theme at sunrise .
                    Or manual scheduling.

                    • Adding tags

                      Many to-do platforms allow the user to add tags in natural language. For example it may be a task to pick something up for a person. Maybe that person has a tag associated with their name. For example “John.” It would be nice to just type in the task field “pickup cake #john” and then have a task/event added that says pickup cake and the “John” tag is appended to it.

                      • user interface

                        This is directed at the Android development team.

                        Whatever upgrades are being planned, I'll only suggest that the developers respect the UI of the current version. One of Informant's features that, IMHO, sets it apart from other Android and iOS PIMs is its lack of subtlety. What I mean by this is that Informant doesn't suffer from the insufferable smugness of Jony Ive's vision of iOS and macOS. There is no unreadable light-grey text nor any "cuteness" to its design ethic. Informant is in your face, easily readable, and just works.

                        BTW, I've been a Mac user for over 30…
