Store Performance Index shows overall performance of your app on app stores. It is based on combined ASO & reviews metrics.
User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
My first (one star) review was during a period of becoming reacquainted with this multifaceted application after my absence from it for a considerable time. My frustration levels mounted as I attempted to relearn how to accomplish what I wanted while experiencing the delays involved with getting answers to my questions (I usually received detailed replies the next day, but I have always been the type of person who wants to accomplish things immediately). Eventually I became more familiar with its attributes and its limitations. The attributes of this app far outweigh its limitations. I have found that it’s syncing limitations are not its own, but lie with the limited scope of the calendars and reminders I wanted to sync with. Informant’s functions are far beyond the abilities of other applications. With that in mind I have learned to just refer to the native Apple calendar for shared information and to use the power and versatility of Informant to accomplish my planning and documentation needs. It’s Notes section crashes, but I am advised that has been identified and will be corrected with the next release. In the meantime I have found a workaround.
I used Pocket informant in 2013 but became frustrated with the inability to prioritize tasks. Finally went back to paper planning due to lack of customizability. I decided to give digital planning another try, and being familiar with pocket informant tried it first. While the app is visually pleasing, and much easier to use, still unable to prioritize tasks. It would be super easy to drag and drop, especially since this is available in the project view. The tasks actually laid up and seem like they’re going to move, but then don’t stay re-ordered. Very frustrating. The notes section needs a lot of work. Unfortunately I’m going to have to continue to use Notability for this functionality. There’s no Apple Pencil support which is a big drawback. One nice thing is the ability to customize to GTD or Franklin Covey. However neither of these systems is conducive to putting in tasks quickly, which is why you need to be able to manually re-order tasks on the go. I’ve had to contact support twice, the first time I never got an answer, the second time their response was less than awesome since it was essentially sorry no but hey go re-posted on this website and give the engineers some ideas. If this were a free app that would be an acceptable response but I paid for a year subscription so I think maybe you could just forward my email on and save me the trip.
I’ve been using informant for years and I love the layout and most other features, however I’m getting frustrated enough there I am sadly looking for a different calendar app. My frustration mostly comes from constant sync issues. I payed the subscription price for informant sync and it absolutely does not sync between my devices no matter what I do. It also does not automatically update my subscription calendars and doesn’t update them manually either on the new app. On the old app I would unsubscribe and subscribe again whenever issues arose (not ideal, but I really wanted to keep using the app), but on the new app attempt to subscribe give me a statement that apple requires secure server use starting with HTTPS (which it does!!!!!!!!!) And the app completely just doesn’t recognize it. I also (on the new app) was not able to sign into my informant sync account that I payed for (it just tells me user not found - and I know my account info was correct), so I can’t use any of the ‘payed’ features (which by now are all the features). I am extremely disappointed. I used to love this app and it has become unusable for me. I am constantly worried that it’s not going to sync correctly and I’ll miss something important and I feel cheated after I payed for informant sync and can’t use that either. I can’t use a calendar app I can’t trust regardless of how much I love the layout.
I completely concur with the ‘WalrusTexas’ review: I also chose Pocket Informant when I switched from Palm to iPhone because there wasn’t a calendar app out there that could manage all the repeating event/task iterations I need for my 8 life-areas with enough color choices to help visually distinguish them quickly. I’ve been recommending this app highly for years (yes, since Palm bit the dust) and assuring them that the relatively high cost was worth EVERY cent they’d pay for it! However, I too find the roller dial to select appt times cumbersome because the right thumb (my preference in use) tends to hit the ‘most bites’ section when I’m trying to reach over it to pick the hour section. This feature still needs some work. I’ve submitted a suggestion that might solve 90-95% of this problem. Add a button or place to choose “__:00” or “__:30” for the minutes with one tap. 95% of the time appts or tasks are scheduled or rescheduled on the hour or half hour, so this would greatly expedite entries, as I often overshoot the :00 or :30 when I’m using the roller bar 10-20x per day! Thank you in advance for your consideration. Keep up the great work! LOVE this app‼️
I see no advantage to Siri’s functioning as a habit tracker to remind me to make a note every day at 3 pm if I’m not going to remember a week from now that I made it. I’ve been using this app since my first Pocket PC. The notes feature does not, and never has, integrated well with the rest of the app. It’s always seemed like an afterthought. I want to be able to see all my appointments, all my tasks and all my notes related to a given project on one screen. The closest I’ve been able to get is by creating a Smart Filter for the project and then setting Focus View to show the Smart Filter, Notes, plus some additional filtering of the calendar and tasks. But the notes feature is flaky. My notes either show up only on the date I create them or the date I pin them to. And I can’t filter the notes to be project specific in Focus View. One more feature that would be nice . . . convert a completed task to a note. I have no problem with the subscription based model. I would pay just as much for a new paper planner every year. But it seems like the revenues collected go toward just trying to keep up with Apple’s bells and whistles and never delivering on features that should have been added years ago.
