If you’ve played one Kairosoft game, you’ve played them all.

One key feature is the reliance on blending mechanics, which is something will really appeal to sword and sorcery fans. Plus, you know, dragons. Dragons make everything better.

It’s really hard to justify spending more than $5 on an app, but Informant 3 is one of those rare apps that’s worth paying a premium for. Informant 3 is robust productivity suite that lets you view you calendar, notes, tasks, and contact list in one place. Newly re-designed to be more consistent with Informant for iOS, this app now makes it easier than ever for users on both platforms to keep track of their data.
