That is very different from my experiences with them over the past two years, and I recently had a direct experience with their tech support staff that was quite good.  They followed through on my support ticket and actually spent time with my problem.  I try not to judge apps just on their reviews alone, as there are many people who are all too quick to write off an app that they cannot understand.  I know there are pieces of software that have received bad reviews elsewhere that folks here really like.  I would suggest that you read through their support forum and blog to get a better idea about the folks at PI.  They have been supporting versions of PI on many platforms over the past few years, and while they may not be perfect, they do work hard, and they are very transparent with their customers.

Thanks Ken, that’s encouraging. I’ll check out their forum and blog then.

Some days I think that Google is its own worst enemy.  I was using Calendar last night to update some events.  I know that Google does not allow partial word searches in G-Mail or Calendar, so I typed the whole word.  Now, it returned some of my entries, but not all of them.  Flip into advanced search, and give it a limited date range, and up come the events.  The logic behind this astounds me.  For a copmany that is run by engineers, you would think that their products, while perhaps a bit lacking in elegance, would at least work as expected.  It is a bit puzzling that a Google product has problems with search features.  I cannot wait until there is a viable calendar alternative to Google’s that syncs up with mobile devices.

I have now more or less transitioned from Datebk6 on Palm to Pocket Informant and Toodledo on the iPad/iPod. One feature I miss though is the ability in Datebk to tick off appointments as “done.” Are there any iPad/iPod apps that can do that?
