Staying organized in this day and age is no easy feat. We all have so much going on at work and in our personal lives that it can get really hairy managing it all just to stay sane. You have meetings to attend, parties to host, and events to plan. You have people to pick up, things to buy, and tasks to complete. This list grows and grows. Unless you are super organized in your head, you need an organizer that helps you manage it all and allow you to focus on making more critical decisions, rather than worry about what your next task of the day will be.
The key to great time management is letting tools do the work for you. That’s what they are for. If you are spending too much time on a tool, then that tool is not doing its job.
Informant 5 is a tool that lives up to its name. It keeps you informed and organized; and, it does its job.
Free to download, and filled with numerous subscription options that offer an extended array of app features, Informant 5 is an organizer app that you have to try, even if you love the app you currently have.
I personally have been an avid user of Errands. But, after downloading Informant, I now know what I was missing.
The free version of Informant 5 gives you calendaring. You can enter events and such, along with reminders. What you really need is the upgraded version of Informant, because that is where the workhorse lives.
With a subscription purchase, you get access to your Informant app from both iPhones and iPads – this is essential because you want that accessibility to keep in sync and be able to plan and make changes from whatever device you have handy.
The app itself is like no other. Its coloring is quite simple, and some could say bland, but what you need with an organizer app is not the bells and whistles of graphics and such, but an easy to read display that renders your tasks, events and calendar items in such a way that makes it super easy for you to find what you are looking for and to quickly see what’s on tap for the day and prioritize if needed.
The calendar is white. The background is black. The items you place in the organizer will be on the black background in white letters, but what is most important is the color coding scheme the app offers so that can categorize tasks, notes and events in a way that works best for you. You can categorize by work, personal, entertainment. You could categorize by priority. It’s all up to you. But the point I wanted to make is that the color on black makes it so easy to get a quick status on how your day is stacking up so that you can reprioritize or pick your game.
What I would like to see in the app is the ability to outright purchase it instead of getting a subscription. I love it that much. Future updates should be included, with significant improvements to functionality then added as in-app purchases.
If you seek some stability in your day and need a tool to help get you there, download Informant 5 today. You will wonder how you functioned without it.
