    The iPad, while a fun device, is not meant only to entertain. It can also make you more productive and help you keep your life organized. While there are several apps that cater to organization, it's tough to sift through them all and determine which ones work the best. One such app, however, is Pocket Informant HD. The app not only simplifies the daily juggling and remembering of tasks, but it does so with a clean, simple, user-friendly interface.

    Pocket Informant has some history behind it; its first release was not on the iPad. Rather, it was previously released for the iPhone. The app garnered plenty of success and critical praise, leading its developers to release it for the iPad to take advantage of not only the app's previous popularity, but the iPad's processing power and large display.

    You may be used to an actual calendar in your home or office, or you may use a calendar application on your smartphone or computer. While that may suffice, why not maximize your organizational potential?  With Pocket Informant HD, you can do just that. Not only will the app integrate all of your important appointments, tasks, and more into a streamlined design, but it's very easy to use. With the iPad's large 9.7-inch display, it's also a joy to view and interact with as well.

    As stated, using Pocket Informant HD is not complicated at all. You can select a certain date on the calendar to see what's planned, or you can view time periods by swiping through the calendar as if it were a book. Even if your calendar is loaded with tasks and appointments, it will not look cluttered, as a real calendar would. That's a definite plus, as everything stays neat and organized. 

    You can ever color code your events according to what category they fall into. Certain events can have their own icons, and you can star important tasks for extra emphasis. If you prefer a particular style, you can create a template for new tasks. Tasks can also be filtered, so you get a better idea of your upcoming schedule, and you can search for specific events, too. To keep everyone in the loop, there's also the ability to send meeting requests for appointments.

    If you already use other calendar services, you can sync with Pocket Informant HD for even better integration. The app will sync with Google Calendar and Toodledo for free. It will also sync with Microsoft Outlook, but you will need separate WebIS Desktop Sync software, which costs $5. Once you have the sync set up, your information will auto-sync every 45 minutes.

    Of course, Pocket Informant HD comes with many more features than the ones listed. If you think of almost every feature you would want in an organizational tool, it probably has it. Pocket Informant HD is not one of the cheapest apps available, as it costs $6.99. Still, that's not bad when you consider the time it could save you by keeping you on top of all of your important tasks and appointments.
