Introducing “Dark Mode”

Every super hero has their alter ego. Now Informant 5 has one too. We call it Dark Mode. Switch to dark mode to change all of your screens to a dark background.  Dark Mode comes in super useful in low light situations like in a movie theater, or in the bedroom when you need to sneak a peak at your schedule or capture that midnight inspiration without disturbing your spouse by lighting up the room.

Advanced Task Management

Organize tasks into projects. Tasks can have sub-tasks or checklists. Seamlessly integrates with your existing Apple reminders, or use Informant Projects for more robust features.

A Month View You Can Really Use

The Informant 5 Month View is far more functional than the default calendar month view. The default iOS calendar only gives you a dot if you have an appointment on a particular day.  Our month view uses tiny-text to show the actual name and time of the event.

This unique digital format goes beyond the limitations of paper calendar visuals by allowing multi-day events to smoothly and visually cross months and give you a real sense of the week you’re in. It also gives you the ability to have the current week at the top of the screen so you see more of your future events. And the best part is unlike other calendars that try to bring together months – you won’t get lost in what month you’re looking at.

We’ve rewritten our Month View from scratch to be cleaner, faster, and unlike every other calendar app – we move beyond how paper calendars show your calendar. The Month View scrolls vertically and smoothly, showing each month with a dark line separating the months, and the month name as the first day.

Advanced Location Support

Informant 5 supports “geofences” with custom areas around your locations. Filter your calendar or task list by geofenced locations. Geofencing works great for outdoor locations! Get alerts for arriving, or leaving a geofenced area. Change your geofenced area from 100m to thousands of meters.

Informant’s advanced search makes finding entries in your application easy by allowing you to search +/- 75 years. 


Help manage the time zone mess! Just create trips for whenever you travel and Informant 5 will automatically setup your time zones for you – both inside and outside your trip dates! Dealing with time zones has never been easier!

  • Events created during a travel period automatically get set to that time zone.
  • During the travel period events created outside the travel period will use the home time zone.
  • Events created outside the travel period for a time period outside a travel period are not affected by TravelAssist™.
  • Events created on calendars with specific time zones ignore TravelAssist™.

Easy Setup

Unlike many other calendar apps,  Informant can access your native calendar data directly (with your permission). This means that setup is a breeze.Simply download the app, select your calendars to display, and all of your existing appointments are there. This makes it easy to use Informant to manage your existing calendars in case you don’t need yet another calendar. Wow! That is simple.
