Default Experience with e-Mobile Planner

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking for an alternative to the BB calendar. I've tried Agendus and Pocket Informant and been less than satisfied. Has anyone tried the e-Mobile Planner? I haven't been able to find any reviews on the product. It looks interesting, but so did Pocket Informant.

The same company also offers e-Mobile Today Pro, which seems to include Planner in it, but it's a bit unclear. Anyone know?

Bonus question: it seems like the add-on calendars all have a problem with synching with the BB calendar and Outlook. It's as if there's no direct path among the three -- or no way to by-pass the BB calendar. Is this a problem with the BB architecture? Or is it the way 3rd party developers choose to set it up? Just curious.
Thanks.

If you're less than satisfied with Pocket Informant, then you're going to be sorely dissatisfied with anything else on the market. Guaranteed. PI for BB isn't nearly as good as it is for Windows Mobile devices, but it's worlds better than the default calendar and any third party competition currently available.

I second this to the maxx---PI BB has its shortcomings, but their developer Alex Kac is very responsive with his products. All need to keep in mind that this is new territory for them at webis, but they will come thru. I for one struggle with a couple of qwerks, but still have PIBB installed, knowing that by v2, we will have something good going. v.1.0.1 is not that bad, and I heard 1.0.2 should be out soon (after first of year most likely), where a lot of fixes and additions will be made. But stay clear of eMobile Planner, I downloaded that for a second and uninstalled and initiated a refund. Good idea, just not as customizable.

Angry e-Mobile Planner not usable

It is really a shame e-Mobile Planner looks really good. The concept is great but it is not usable on my BlackBerry Bold 9000... Why ?

- repeating calendar entries (from my Lotus Notes) showed on the BB calendar but not on e-Mobile Planner.

- to scroll through the calendar is much too slow. Simply not usable. It would be OK to wait a while if the data would stay in cache and you could swop forward and backward to a page which already stored in cache. But you have to wait more or less for each page again.

- for a European person used to start the week on Monday, it is hard to accept that there is no option then to start Sunday (first Software ever w/o this option)

- day / time format only for the US no choice to switch to EU format

I'm with ya brother. Just not quite there yet. I have suggested some of the same items you list to them, and never heard from them since. So I guess the feeling will be mutual at this point!

According to this thread Agendus works well with the Storm, but I couldn't get it to do anything:

Agendus (and other Task/PIM apps) for Storm
