    Does anyone know of an app that's like a filofax, for example diary, contacts, to do list and notes all in one app.

    I have downloaded various but none seem to step up to the mark

    Thanks

    Don't ask me, I still have my old beaten leather Filofax from many moons ago. And yes, I use a fountain pen. My FB is worth two and a half iPads.

    As long as you want to fly in the face of a proud tradition and refuse to embrace a time when people actually wrote things with a fine quality writing instrument on 100% cotton bond paper, you might consider using Bento. It is a DB program that lets you create any kind of list or DB.

    Pocket Informant is absolutely great. Calendar (4 views), full featured projects, access to iPad contacts, and notebook. Also able to access external diary databases. Have used it since it first came out, and wouldn't be without it.

    it's a shame your not allowed a short free trial before you buy. I will probably end up with all three as well :)

    It can become quite addictive! Really though, for a few £/$ each it's not a massive outlay to get what you want, at least two of them have free "lite" versions, in the App Store click on the "Developer details" tab for each app and you will get a list of their other apps including any free versions.

    I ended up getting pocket informant but I am having trouble seeing the tasks on the "today" view.
    They are appearing on the left hand side of the screen and not on the right as shown in the user manual illustration 3.4

    Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

    Thanks

    In PI. Go to settings/today settings/due and overdue and make sure it is set to On. Personally I have all items on that settings page turned on.
