Tonight I received an email from Alex Kac saying that he has just released
the latest version of Pocket Informant,
his brilliant PIM application that no Windows Mobile 5 device should be
Here’s the 411:
"I am quite happy to announce the final release of Pocket Informant 2007!
We’ve worked pretty hard with this release and have some amazing things to talk
about. First is that Pocket Informant 2007 now works directly with Franklin
Covey Plan Plus for Outlook 4.0. Pocket Informant 2007 adds several new Franklin
Covey Plan Plus for Outlook 4.0 (PPO) features such as the Daily Tasks, Master
Tasks, Projects, Task Status, Percentage Completion, and Daily Notes. These
features work perfectly within Pocket Informant without PPO. However for these
features to sync up to the desktop you need to have PPO version 4.0. PPO 4.0
ships with the sync conduit which syncs this data to the desktop.
Second is just how well integrated the new features within PI 2007 are –
here are some highlights:
NEW! Daily Notes
NEW! Franklin Covey Daily, Master, and Project views and synching with
Plan Plus for Outlook 4.0.
NEW! Task Status – Normal/Complete/In Process (w/% complete)/Delegate
NEW! Create appointments for specific timezones
NEW! Complete One handed Soft Key support
NEW! Revamped Contacts Summary with Call Logs (Phone Edition devices
NEW! One handed date picker
NEW! Multiple Alarms, Travel Appointments
NEW! Live Preview windows
NEW! Exchange GAL support on WM5 AKU2
NEW! Revamped Journal with Rich Text and new fields
We are giving a free upgrade to all Pocket Informant 2005 customers who
purchased from April 1st 2006 on up. Otherwise upgrades are $12.45.? The upgrade
page is available here:
We currently are only releasing the American English version of the
software as we polish up the localizations. To download Pocket Informant 2007,

Pocket Informant 2007 is for Windows Mobile 2003/2003SE and Windows Mobile
5 Pocket PCs."
I have been using PI for years, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
If you want more functionality from your WM5 device than just the basic
out-of-the-box PIM functions, then you must try Pocket Informant 7! :0)
