    Ya know the funny thing with Informant...back on Palm I did support for Agendus. Informant was our competitor and I really disliked it...for obvious reasons. Agendus on iOS is garbage - they were bought out by Splash, and Splash did them no favors. So even after going to WinMo, I still wasn't crazy about Informant, but it's pretty damn nice on iOS!

    OK - so I broke down and spent $5 on PI GO. So far, OK. No sure it is *everything* I was hoping for, but it is a start. I might actually upgrade to the Pro if I can get through a few issues I am having. At the risk of being seen as a thread hijacker, I'll ask here (since PI GO is, at least, part of the topic) but if I need to go fresh with a whole new post, just say so.

    I work for a Fire Dept., and work shifts; A Shift, B, Shift, and C Shift, each colored differently on our shift calendars. That's to know at a glance whose shift is one. A = Red, B = Blue, and C = Green. I have these shifts set as re-occurring all day appointments in the native calendar. With PI GO, I created separate calendars for each shift, appropriately colored. But when I changed the calendar for each A Shift (for example) from the default iCloud calendar to the A Shift calendar, the all day appointment disappeared on the iOS calendar altogether, as well as iCloud and Outlook, which are all sync'd together. Oops. Took about 30 minutes of undoing what I did, to get all right in the iOS calendar again, but now all my shifts in PI GO are mono color - the system default. So...

    I said to myself, not a big deal self. How about we just tag the event with the proper color. So I create tags with the right color for each event, A, B, and C Shift. Except now I can not figure out how to tag an event. Or a task (reminder) for that matter. Creating the tags I have done, find a way to use those tags I have not. Anyone? Please?

    Other than all this, I think it has lots of potential, and actually makes me wonder what I may be missing that is in the Big Boy "Pro" version.

    Thanks...

    Here's a few screenshots for tags...I use them so that at a glance, I can see on calendar and tasks list what is work etc When setting up new event or task, scroll down to 'tag' and then it will show in calendar as that color...

    Was that your question or did I totally miss it?!😳

    I'm liking it so far too...and Pro has some more task abilities (not quite sure what?!) and Contacts plus another view for calendar...

    Hope I helped a little! 😉

    Thanks! - I think I am missing something however. I do not have the same "Tag" field you have right above your calendar drop down. I have an option to select which calendar, but no tag. Hmm...

    I must have messed this up somehow - I just noticed I don't even have an icon option. I've gone through all of my settings a few times, but it's not there. But I know it has to be.

    AND, I am unclear on what you ask - Which Calendars to select from. I have an iCloud calendar and an exchange calendar. My exchange calendar is "unselected" for most of the time.

    Something else I just noticed looking through ADVANCED|DATABASE STATISTICS. I have 0 Calendar items, and 615 iOS Calendar items. What's the difference?

    Never mind... Just found this tidbit in the PI GO pdf manual available on the PI site; "• Any Pocket Informant GO!™ specific fields such as icon and tags are not supported for iOS calendar events."

    Of course. Looks like I am just plain out of luck...

    I actually use Outlook at home sync'd through iCloud to my iPhone. I also have a work Exchange account on the iPhone that I keep undelivered most of time but want the calendar available.

    It all works well, but I think I may be trying to make one app to many work within "my system".

    Thanks ...

    I hope you can get it to work or find something that can do the job for you! I did see a few Shift calendars in my perusal of productivity apps in the App Store...

    Thanks. I'll keep looking. I like to UI, for the most part. Love tasks and events on one page on Today. I guess you can't have it all, right?

    Yes...AND there is no discount for those going from Go to Pro; you pay the full cost for Pro...(at least their customer service is quick in responding!)

    I hear you. Maybe if the state of our economy wasn't in such a shamble, they'd be more willing to cooperate. Then again, if the company can take $5 off the asking price for a day then they should certainly be able to charge that same amount or less to go from the Go version to the Pro version, in my opinion.

    I agree and that's exactly what I stated to them in my reply email😉...will let you know if they offer anything!

    Okay, thanks. Ya know, when I worked at Walt Disney World as a teenager & in my mid 20's, they repeatedly stressed the importance of customer service. I also remember hearing one of my college professors say that not only are you paying for a product, but also the service. If the service sucks, the sale of the product will suffer despite how great it may be. You know what? He was spot-on and companies like Disney and Apple fully understand that bit of knowledge.

    Back from taking my afternoon nap (I've come down with that wicked cold that is going around!).

    I was going to email their support also, but since they already answered yours, AND they offer no discount or prorated rate to upgrade, then why waste my time. I work in Public Safety, and count a very high premium on "customer service". I can't stand it when a person, company, or Government, takes advantage of a person or group.

    My wife says I am grumpy when I first wake up.... ;-)

    You would think for such a hi-end app (both in price and in capabilities) there would be a 'try this and then upgrade for more great features...like most apps out there. At least they responded to me email, but they've lost a sale for their Pro version...😔

    Hope you feel better soon!!

    It's not an upgrade - it's a totally separate app, so if you want Pro, just buy it in the app store.
