Two of the most important apps I use on the iPad get tight integration in an upcoming version of one of the apps.

One of the most heavily apps on my iPad is getting an update that makes it work seamlessly with another important app I use. Pocket Informant 3.1 (PI) for iOS is about to be released and the new tight integration with Evernote brings note reminders from the latter into the former's calendars.

I've been using an early version of Pocket Informant 3.1 on both of my iPads and developer webIS has done a marvelous job making its app play nicely with Evernote. The new integration in Pocket Informant has not only made that app more valuable to me in my daily routine but has also made Evernote even more important to my work flow. That's exactly what new features should do when they bring two powerful apps together.

Pocket Informant has long been one of the best calendar/task/note apps on both Android and iOS and I have used it for years. It is the ultimate calendar app that makes it a breeze to get a handle on a busy work day.

Evernote has also been around for a long time and is a superb note app. I use it heavily, even as a writing app due to the ability to access my notes on any device/platform.

That access includes Pocket Informant, as all my notes are synced to PI and are accessible in that app. I can create new Evernote apps right inside PI and they instantly show up in my Evernote cloud storage. More importantly, notes created in Evernote with reminders, which effectively makes them to-do items, now appear in my PI calendar where they are most useful.

To-do items created in Evernote not only appear in PI, they can be marked as done in the latter app. This new collaboration between the two apps makes both apps more functional and thus better for my work.

Pocket Informant 3.1 has a lot of new features, too numerous to mention in this article. It should be available in the iTunes app store soon.
