What's new in version 3.31
Version 3.3/3.31 bring many major improvements and solidifies Pocket Informant as the best calendar and task manager on iOS. Some of these items are for the Pro Upgrade.

3.31 Release notes:
- Improvements to the new Google Calendar sync engine
- Improved a potential issue on slower devices causing a freeze when saving an event or task
Better error handling for Weather
Improvements to recurring alarms

3.3 Release notes:
- Global Quick Event Entry
a) Use two fingers to swipe down in any screen to access a natural language event entry creation
b) Natural Language Entry is now disabled by default in the editors. We believe the new Global Quick Entry feature is a superior way to use NLE. Additionally, we received feedback from folks who didn't realize that this feature was on, and thus were confused when PI started parsing event titles like "Black Friday”.

- Natural Language now supports Calendars, Tags, Projects, and Contexts:
a) Meet Bob at the library tomorrow 5pm cal:home tag:book club, astronomy
b) Replace the air filters every month prj:home maintenance ctx:allergen
c) The Calendar, Tag, etc specifiers are expected to be at the end of the text, in no particular order. You can also use the full labels: calendar, tags, project, context. The search for the objects by title is case insensitive.

- Significant upgrade of Google Sync
a) Sync Errors are now shown in the Settings screen
b) Performance is improved 10x
c) More complete sync

- Voice Recording adds a Pause button
- Added "Change Folder/Notebook" option to the Swipe menu for tasks and notes so you can quickly file your tasks/notes
- Notes View now supports drag and drop between folders - and sync accounts
- iPhone/iPad Events/Reminders now support icons and the URL fields

We've spent several months since iOS 7 taking feedback and fine tuning the design and improving reliability greatly. Please note that this will be the last major release to run on iOS 6.
