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 harder.

New Features

  • 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 it’s very powerful whenever you have two distinct set of commitments that may need to be compared. Some examples are:

    • Compare the fixture list of several sports teams.
    • Look at your kids after school activities, and see if there are any clashes.
    • View your work commitments compared with your personal ones.
    • Compare your diary with your partner’s.
    • See your own tasks on a timeline, compared with tasks assigned to others. Include appointments in there too if you want to.
