Pocket Informant free for the first time but...

It's a crippled demo. Don't bother. From the small part I can use it's not very good. Like everything from this vendor it's over complicated and hard to use.

It's a great product for the power user, but yes, as of this update they've gone Freemium.

Wow, freemium bait and switching is going to non game apps too? That is sad.

Yeah, I generally stop supporting developers once they do this. Too bad my list has gotten a little song. Sad, you would think developers would know better than to screw over their previous fans and buyers...morally it's just ****ed up.

And it seems like it is happening so much nowadays. I think it is just causing people unfortunately to stop buying.

I might give this one a try just to test it out. Although I don't think any calendar apps could sway me to replace my Fantastical 2.

i liked this tool ever since i used it on my old pocket PC, roughly a decade ago. I bought it for my iPhone a long time ago, and I use it on a daily basis.

Whatever you think of the new marketing technique, I think too.
I do, however, believe that it is a great calendar app with a lots of great capabilities and rapid updates and upgrade.

P.S. I won't need to pay again, would I?
