Pocket Informant 1.5 Released – Improved All Around

PI_Storm_1 Pocket Informant was released awhile ago by WebIS but Josh let me know that they have released a significant upgrade in the last few days. This new version 1.5 adds a few customizations and options that look promising. In case you do not know, Pocket Informant is a Contacts/Calendar/Tasks manager for your BlackBerry that syncs with your native applications.
