    • create notes like a paper diary

      I have an android tablet and i miss an app to do the same things that i do with my paper diary. Your app is fantastic and it would be awesome to have an event in the calendary in witch you can write (including handwrite, paint, etc.) similar to a paper diary. I always look with admiration when my colleage starts "organizer hd" in his ipad.

      • S-Pen enabled Pocket Informant

        I love technolgy but I also miss the "interface" and the inherent organizational qualities of a paper day planner. I think an S-Pen enabled version of PI for the Galaxy Note would be the perfect solution. The option to handwrite events, contact entries and notes and let the handwriting recognition software convert it all to text would be great!

        • A web interface for Informant

          For Informant to move forward and prosper I feel it is important it have a presence on all popular platforms including an internet based interface accessible through a web browser to tie all the others together.

          • Possibility to choose OneNote instead of evernote

            I'm working with OneNote - NOT with Evernote. Therefore a connection for synchronising PI with OneNote would boost my workflow!!

            • Allow users to manually sort tasks

              After using Importance and Star to put today's high priorities at the top of the task list, I need to manually sort them so I have my list for the day. If I only have a pile of 20 tasks, I have to make a list for the day on paper. Sorting today's list by categories doesn't work because there are many, many factors determining what order I want to do things on a given day.

              • Google Keep Notes Sync

                Since Google has its own Notes application called Google Keep Notes, the Pocket Informant's notes could be synced with the Google Keep Notes.

                  • Nag me:Trigger alarms everyday on overdue tasks, at the original alarm time, until completed

                    If the original alarm was dismissed, and the task is overdue, have an option for each task to continue to remind the user by triggering the alarm (at the original alarm time) after the original alarm date has passed. The option would be a "nag me" check box field in each task.

                        • Make PI truly Task & Event Centric. Tap task to show option to e-mail, link to contact, other tasks & events, telephone Calls. retain links

                          Creating an event or task invariably involves other people and Many other tasks, phone calls, emails, links to websites to be able to complete the task. PI should enable you to do this without leaving the original task on event screen. You should be able to review the 'project ' and update it. How about a Wizard to tailor to meet your needs to refine your project. It would be good to have a link from an email to create the task which initiates the project. This would make PI creative (Brainstorming) and more funtional

                                I've been using PI since the Pocket PC days. Unfortunately your Android version has always seemed to be a 2nd thought after IOS & never quite finished. I still keep Informant & use it regularly because it is so flexible. Lots of different views & customizations. For me it all starts with the widget. I want a widget to look good & provide me with my appointments & tasks (Agenda View) for the day without my having to open the app. The primary reason I switched to Outlook is because the widget looks more modern. The font is nicer &…

                                  Have multi level task hierarchies for the android application. This has already been implemented for the iOS application, would be nice to have it on android as well.

                                  • Display the total amount of time needed for all tasks on a day

                                    A very handy feature I've seen in other task management systems is a total amount of time needed to complete tasks during a day displayed based on the task lengths. Useful for quickly Visually checking if you're overreaching on what you're trying to do that day.

                                    • Make Android Informant System 5 compliant

                                      I wrote this elsewhere but why do the Android people ALWAYS suffer when we have 83% of the market. Make Informant system 5 compliant for Android and you've got a winning series. I paid $32 for Informant Sync. If this isn't rectified you will never see a dime from me again and I will not likely use the product. Planner Plus is almost as good, fully cross platform and $6.95. Where would you put you money?

                                      • Create More Powerful Search Options

                                        Right now SEARCH is very simple. You can get lots of "hits" and scrolling through them to find the one that you want is a drag. Why not allow the Category filter or the Grouping filter (three stacked horizontal bars to left of Category filter) be applied to the SEARCH results to filter them down? The SEARCH function currently ignores any Category filter and doesn't display SEARCH results grouped by any group filter even if one or both of these filters are set before initiating a SEARCH.
