Introducing Agenda, the award-winning elegant new take on notes.
Agenda is a
date-focused note taking app for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, which helps you plan
and document your projects. Agenda gives you a complete picture of past, present
and future, driving your projects forward. Whether...
Life changing at work
Overall, I’m thrilled to have this app!!!!!! Nothing else is like it exists (linking note taking to calendar events) and it’s an indispensable for keeping my work organized. I am more than happy to pay for this application and I love not being forced into subscription pricing!! That said, I hope the iOS version eventually gets to the same level of polish as the Mac version.... The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because text entry on iOS is frustratingly inferior to the Mac version of Agenda. For example, I am constantly recorrecting style assignments that render incorrectly or seem to change on their own, and simple things like setting my text insertion point at the end of a line (using touch) is crazy hard. I fear these iOS shortcoming are so fundamental that they threaten Agenda’s long-term survival. If I hadn’t tried the Mac version first and experienced what the developers were capable of, I would have given up on the iOS version by now over text manipulation and rendering problems. Because I mainly live on an iPad, I hope I don’t have to suffer this silliness much longer.
The Solution to My Day Planner Problem
I’ve never been able to use traditional paper planners well. While I’ve always seen how they could, in theory, be useful, I’ve tried many times to incorporate them into how I do things, and they always end up abandoned. This app offers some adjustments in just the right areas for me - it has enough structure to help keep me organized, but enough flexibility to rearrange things more easily than trying to constantly rewrite a paper planner. The ability to toggle things “on” and “off” the main list, as well as the ability to link notes to the Apple calendar app are a huge pluses as well for me in keeping the most important things handy at any given time. I also like that other things can be kept a little more tucked away, but still accessible as needed. Long story short, I’m a HUGE fan of this app, and have used it pretty much daily now for about three years. It’s perfect for my needs.
Lots of promise but keeps crashing in multitasking/side-by-side view
I’ve downloaded and used a ton of note-taking apps, I just heard about Agenda last night. I love the premise of this app - linking notes to calendar events and then being able to quickly see associated notes, a timeline of information and even upcoming agenda items that need to be discussed. There’s huge potential with this app. I like that it’s free to try and that instead of a subscription option, there’s a one-time fee to upgrade premium features. After using it in one meeting I was ready to purchase the premium version but then I opened my e-mail in split view on my 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd gen) and the Agenda app started crashing. It doesn’t seem to matter what is open next to it, when in split-screen view Agenda keeps closing. I’ve gotten unexpected crash warnings and I have submitted crash logs to the developer. I work predominantly in a split screen view - it’s the reason I bought the larger iPad. Until this bug is resolved there’s no way I’m purchasing anything. Sadly I may have to go back to a more stable alternative - even though I love the premise of this app.
Revised... upgraded to 5* simply because of their superb customer support. Additionally, after emerging myself in their product description screens and checking out the feature set, this should quickly become my go-to tool for all the massive note taking that I do. Great concepts and I’m hoping to soon report how much it improves the existing tools I use today. Evernote and Dropbox users pay through subscriptions to get basic vanilla ice cream without the toppings. I personally have been a less-than-satisfied paid user for both Evernote and Dropbox apps for about a decade. Time will tell, but I can imagine using Agenda with ICloud storage to replace both Wherevernote and Dropbox because of Agenda’s generalized organizational, time-stamping and tagging capabilities. And to those looking for organizational ideas like I always am, if you haven’t checked out the online following on their support page, you’re in for a real treat! Thanks again, Alex, appreciate the help! ___ Cannot login to post my issue on the blog. It says it cannot verify my login Paid for app premium features, but app features will not load. Keeps asking me to login. After logging in, asks me to pay for premium features (which I’ve already done), so I click restore purchase. Then it asks me to login. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat.
Great App, but be Careful - UPDATE
UPDATE This company is very impressive and I’m very satisfied with the measures they’ve taken for my concerns. They added extra measures to ensure you don’t lose the notes you’ve written when you are working across two devices. Very exceptional customer service. I’m hoping this will help myself and others whenever using this awesome app. —— I’ve been really enjoying this app for a couple months already. This has an amazing interface and great features. Dark mode looks clean and you’re able to organize your notes differently and much better than what comes with your phone. Unfortunately, their syncing is terrible. Think about it, you poor your heart and soul into the thoughts and ideas you’re typing. You finish it up and look at a pretty solid idea. Close the app, you go about your day then you come back to right before you started to flow. BS. No way to retrieve your previous thoughts. Might as well speak it. I was super excited to even pay the premium because they’re kind enough to let you own it than subscribe when I first downloaded this, but another round of lost ideas just killed it for me. I’m hoping they can fix how these notes can be backed up. Perhaps an offline mode and then it syncs back when you’re online. Idk, something so you don’t lose these great ideas. I personally wouldn’t want to use Dropbox Paper, but they’re syncing is immaculate. I want to love this app. Please fix this.
This will be a “I have never written a review before until now” type of review, which is true as I have never taken the time to review an app I’ve purchase/downloaded in the past. After using Agenda for the past week, I decided to make an exception. Agenda is a solid performing useful piece of software. I use it for my work and personal life. For work, I created a work log so I can start my day out with knowing what I have done and what I need to do. I connect my notes to a calendar event so I can track what items came out of the meeting and tasks which need completing. At the end of the day I review what was completed and note what still needs to be done. Rinse and repeat. I do the same for my personal life. I can do this with other apps too. Agenda is different because of the ease of use and all the great features included. Excellent job guys. Keep it up.
Simple, but so many options!
This app really has great features, I love being able to organize notes and projects this way. The text formatting is so great, and organizing notes, adding due dates, and being able to put specific notes and to do lists from multiple projects on the agenda is so convenient. I get scheduling, note taking, and to do listing all in one place. I would love to see just a couple more features: support for handwriting notes (eg with apple pencil or other stylus) and linking relevant documents/attachments to a project. If I could do those two things I would probably never use another note taking/to do list/scheduling app again. Adding new themes/color schemes would be nice too, maybe different color themes or a dark mode. I’d love to see what new features come out as development continues :) Great app! Keep it up!!!
No Other App Like This One
There are still rough edges here and there. I like the tagging system but auto completion of tags would have been nice. There are some typing errors with tags sometimes where you have to go back and rewrite the tag as mouse moves unexpectedly. URL links are little too sensitive sometimes so that it makes it difficult to edit the notes. Apart from all these negatives, there is no other app like this one in the App Store. Agenda is a note app that can completely replace your note and todo app. It has become my go to organization tool. Agenda is where all my information goes by default including todos. It integrates with Apple reminders and calendar app nicely. It’s still a 5 star app for me and totally worth the premium it charges. Any updates and bug fixes would be icing on cake as it’s already pretty good app..
One of the most comprehensive productivity tools I’ve come across
Like most folks, I've spent more time than I should trying to find an app (or bundle of apps) that allow me to easily manage my time. Reminder lists, to do lists, note taking apps, calendars, etc etc. I’ve been using Agenda for nearly a year now, and can verify that not only has it met my somewhat lofty productivity and time management needs, but it continues to grow and develop new ways to integrate with more tools and into more of my regular tasks- making it a one stop shop app for nearly everything productivity related. Plus, it’s lightweight enough to work on any device efficiently and effectively, from a MacBook to an iPhone. Great tool and a great app. Thank you!
I was seduced by the graphics.
Agenda is a nice app. Beautiful graphics, lovely interface, well organized company, terrific marketing. I bought it for a year. Using Agenda, for me, has been a trial. I want to do simple things. Agenda can do them, but it’s not simple. Best I can tell, I cannot ignore the calendar altogether. It’s always there, asking to be turned on. I bought it expressly because I like the idea of notes inherently organized by date, like my notebooks. In the end, Agenda, while seductively attractive, is too complicated and trying to do too many things for me that’s find difficult to control. If I have to ask how to accomplish something fundamental, it’s not simple. Maybe in a couple of years I’ll check back. If the app looks like it suits you, give it a good long try, attempting everything you want before you commit. I found Agenda to be in the way of my agenda.
Pretty great, but usability + readability dealbreakers
I’ve really wanted to like this 100%. The calendar integration is really cool, the formatting is quick and easy, and iCloud sync is great. I use it for short university papers, so I’ve even considered buying premium. However, it seems that my subconscious has rejected the design of this app–I keep switching back to Simplenote (which is actually a bit too minimalist). There’s something off about the font. I think it’s the kerning and spacing. Words such as “picture”, “systemic”, “privileged”... just don’t look right. Skimming paragraphs is very difficult because of the weird visual font spacing. This is also unfortunately true on Mac. The UI feels a little bit *too spacious* in my opinion. Elements have lots of padding, and the general text size is too large. It might be the heavy UI font weight, which is a bit much (compared to Bear and Simplenote).
Good, but needs improvements
This is an interesting take on a note-taking app, and it’s definitely one I’ll be keeping my eye on. But it’s still early in development, and it needs a bit more maturing before I’ll be able to use it as my main note app. Besides the bugs (and I ran across several just in the first few minutes of trying this out), there definitely need to be theme options. I find the orange a bit ugly, which makes me not want to stare at this app all day. You can’t do circle bullets, only dashes or numbers. You can’t insert an image or drawing into a note. There’s no way to view/search for incomplete checklist items. I love the overall concept of date and calendar-based notes, as well as the separation of people vs. other tags. Hopefully these issues will be addressed as the developers work on the app and I’ll be able to use it in the future.
Brilliant, simple, beautiful, fascinating
This changed the way I think about projects and access information. It makes notes smart with a cleverly simple twist. It’s more powerful than attaching a date to a note; it teaches me to think more about how notes relate to each other as I create them, assign them to past and future days and link them to each other. The Agenda view is excellent and the app is superbly designed (the dark theme is gorgeous). It’s a top-class app in terms of performance and polish. Yet, I think its best feature is that it quietly nudges my note-taking habits away from one-off thoughts and toward connected, progressive ideas. It makes all the difference.
Daily planner/Bullet Journal
I love this app. I use it as my daily planner/ bullet journal. It’s helped me be so much more prepared for the day and very productive. I’ve come up with a layout that’s perfect for my needs. Of course there are quirks and bugs but the support team is pretty quick in fixing them so far. I’ve been using the app since the beginning of the year. One thing I would like would be a he ability to create sub folders inside of projects. For instance, with me using Agenda as a daily planner I create a plan for every day. I would like to when I finish whatever month I’ve completed to put that month into a folder labeled after that month. I hope that makes sense (lol)I think that would extremely helpful. Other than that great app!
Promising, but still needs lots of work.
This is a very promising app. It allows you to create and organize notes and sync them with your calendar. This last feature, which is a premium feature, is really useful. However, at this time the functionality is limited and some really basic features are missing. There is currently no way to include images or files, although the developers have promised this as an upcoming feature. The last thing is that it seems the developers are only focused on the Apple ecosystem. It would be nice to have an OS independent Web interface, but I do not know if one is being planned. Despite these shortcoming, I plan to keep using it and hope the app will mature to fulfill its potential.
