iBeacon Task Alerts, TravelAssist in the New Informant Calendar for iOS

Cedar Park, Texas – WebIS has released an update to the productivity app, Pocket Informant, which is an application that brings together calendar events, tasks, notes and contacts into one location.This major free update adds a user interface refresh, advanced location support with iBeacons and geofencing, TravelAssist(TM), SmartTitle, a unique digital Month View, and more – building on the feedback and requests of an extensive customer base.

With the continued rise in popularity of smartphones, more and more people have moved to using these tools to manage busy lifestyles.

“The most useful feature of mobile devices is the ability to take them everywhere.” says James Kendrick of ZDNet. “A good tool is one that is at hand when it’s needed. That usefulness is only as good as the apps available, and Pocket Informant for iOS is as good as they get.”

Pocket Informant has been on the leading edge of the market since its introduction almost two decades ago. This latest update to the iOS app continues that trend with a clean, vibrant interface design, introduction of support for Apple’s new iBeacons, and much more.
