With new views, updated interface, and more powerful operation WebIS introduced Pocket Informant 2005 on April 1st and it wasn't joke at all. Pocket Informant 2005 will without a doubt improve your enjoyment and use of your Pocket PC. Even casual users who just like to use Pocket Informant's category colors and icons to bring a little flair to their calendar and tasks will appreciate new features like the beautiful Contacts Picture List view or the new Time Line View.
With better support for all VGA and QVGA users through innovations such as user
controlled category icon and view icon scalings allow you to take QVGA icons and
view them on your VGA device at the correct size or to take VGA icons and use
them on a QVGA screen. Improved Settings navigation will make changing multiple
interface settings at once easier and more navigatible and the ability to
customize some contextual menus means you can make Pocket Informant as simple or
complex as you'd like. These are just a taste of what Pocket Informant 2005
brings with its interface and top down redesign to make you work smarter, not
- Timeline View (TLV): The new Time Line View has been developed to
allow several categories to be seen side by side, each on its own time line.
It is intended to be used out of the box by some, and with a little setup by
others, and is deliberately NOT limited to use for project management,
though as planned features are added it will become a very powerful tool for
that purpose. It has many many uses, which can loosely be split into
"comparing schedules", and "project management":
- Comparing Schedules: Time line view can be used to compare many
different kinds of schedule. Simply by assigning appropriate categories to
each schedule, or diary, they can be viewed alongside each other. Uses
depend only on your imagination, but itâ€™s very powerful whenever you have
two distinct set of commitments that may need to be compared. Some examples
- Compare the fixture list of several sports teams.
- Look at your kids after school activities, and see if there are any
- View your work commitments compared with your personal ones.
- Compare your diary with your partnerâ€™s.
- See your own tasks on a timeline, compared with tasks assigned to
others. Include appointments in there too if you want to.
