I have had the same experience as a number of other users. Like this one here
“As user of Pocket Informant over 15 years , older version then Informant 5, I have also issues to sync with Google calendar as it’s explained on this page.
So I’m a bit frustrated that on emails with Informant , the only solution proposed was to move to a payable version to solve the sync issues, which will probably not correct it.
It’s not very fair from Informant and as I read, solution will probably come soon to be able to sync again with Google calendar.
And if not, I will let down Informant and use Google calendar as many other frustrated users of PI.”
I don’t want to have to upgrade and now pay 35$ a year for ever just to sync with google calendar.
Disappointed. Not paying.
