    For all of you waiting for this awesome PIM, PI is now available in the AppStore. Sync Google calendars and ToodleDo (with iCal / MobileMe / iPhone). Sorry can't post direct link as am on my iPhone at the moment.

    Another pricier app but this works beautifully so I'm happy to pay.

    Yay!

    Yes functionality is awesome, but uses different database to calendars on iPhone (mobileme/Exchange).

    I will wait until they integrate with these - no good to me otherwise

    Very functional, great interface, crashes sometimes when syncing with Google though, however, both Saisuke and SmartTime have also been having difficulty syncing smoothly with Google Beta.

    They've got some rough edges to smooth out, but it doesn't take away from it's overall functionality.

    I trust WIS will sort these out in an update, and it will become far more stable with even better features.

    I love having monthview, tasks, and online back-up all in one app, with it being easy to see all tasks and events for a day on one screen.

    This is probably one of the single most important App releases for the iPhone.

    While it is obviously a 1.0 release, it still provides functionality way above what Apple bothered to give us. It looks well thought out and the support and development feedback seems exceptional.

    I'd like to have a landscape month view with text, not blobs. But then, I knew this wouldn't be in 1.0 as the developer has communicated well right from the start.

    I'm sure 1.1 will introduce some speed up which is definitely needed.

    Lets hope iPhone OS 3.0 gives proper access to the calendar store - the presentation wasn't clear on this point.

    The Native iPhone Calendar will not be open to third party apps in the OS 3.0 update unfortunately. Offline alerts may be possible though I heard. That's really all I need anyways.

    Is it just me that doesn't really like how the app looks? Don't get me wrong, the functionality is amazing, but I really don't like how it looks: the colors of the calendars are dull (and they don't match the colors I use in iCal), the month view is too cluttered, everything looks too square... Even the icon, the colors are too bright so the icon doesn't fit with apple's icons.
