Pocket Informant coming for the iPhone!

3 Comments

AgendaviewPocket Informant by WebIS is easily one of the best programs on the Windows Mobile platform of all time.  It has long been a staple of my WM arsenal and using it for so many years lets me really appreciate the evolution of the program under developer Alex Kac’s able hands.  An interview with Alex (from iPhone site newbie What’s on iPhone.com) about PI points to an upcoming iPhone version of the great program, and that is great news.  According to Alex it’s not a port either, rather a version of PI totally written from the ground up to leverage the UI advantages the iPhone offers.  The thought of programs like Pocket Informant on the iPhone is the reason that I believe the App Store that Apple will unveil this week with the introduction of the iPhone 3G is VERY. BIG. NEWS.  More from Alex:

How long did it take you to design the current version of Pocket Informant for the iPhone?
Original version was 3-4 months in the making of 12-hour days, 7 days a week.  The blackberry version also took 3-4 months.

What?  A Blackberry version in the works too!  Woot!

What about those folks who have been PI Windows Mobile users for years but are planning to switch to the BlackBerry Bold?

Fair is fair, no?

Wow, that’s really great news! It’s one of the main softwares I use on my PDA… If Mobipocket follow WebIS steps, I would consider to buy a iPhone!

James,
I wonder if PI will offer a discount for those of us that have been PI users for years with Windows Mobile but are planning to make the switch to iPhone.
