Pocket Informant has been around for over a decade, on multiple platforms, and has proven to be a reliable and must-have tool for those wishing to consolidate the management of both schedule and to-do list. This new version with the “try before you buy” pricing structure, opens the door for even more customers to experience first hand the personal organization of Pocket Informant.
“I hearken it to old shareware scene that we started with in 2000 where you download an app, try it out, and if you liked it – payed for it,” says Alex Kac, Founder and CEO of WebIS. “We have already seen many users gain from this by being able to share PI with a friend or if they were prior PI users try it out for themselves. We’ve gained by hearing from many new customers about features they want to see or improve.”
Customers who previously purchased the paid version, Pocket Informant Pro, are not required to purchase again. “Before we started working on this new model, we wanted to make sure that everyone who bought Pocket Informant Pro automatically gets upgraded to the new Premium experience for free.” says Chris McSorley, COO and iOS Engineer for WebIS. “This update automatically detects your previous purchase and it will keep you running with the full version of PI – including all the new features we’ve added to Version 3.5.”
Featured in the iTunes App Store as a “Best New App”, and included in the “Get Stuff Done” collection, Pocket Informant continues to be a leading presence in personal organization.
“I probably tried a dozen productivity apps before settling on Pocket Informant.. Many of my colleagues ask me how I keep such a stable, organized balance between work and personal lives and I’m so happy to be able to point them to such comprehensive app. With this update, I’ll be able to point them to a free trial which is clearly more appealing (We work in fast-casual food service leadership, so our funds aren’t extremely fluid).. Nice move.” – ChrisSamsa
