Description
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 you're a business manager noting decisions in a meeting, a teacher planning next week’s lessons, or a blogger brainstorming a post, Agenda is ideal for tracking the evolution of your notes. It's the only note taking app with a strong emphasis on the passage of time, making it the perfect fit for any project. Use it for personal projects like jotting down recipes you’d like to try, or take on major projects at work, planning your next meeting or checking off your daily tasks. The notes in Agenda are beautifully styled, and include powerful features like images, file attachments, tags, lists, and links. You can even connect your notes to events in your calendar, and add due reminders to your tasks. Locating your notes also couldn't be easier, with powerful search, a project jump bar, and related notes list. And when you find what you're looking for, simply go back in the history to where you were. TAKE NOTES. DATE NOTES. Agenda’s unique timeline approach to organizing notes gives your projects momentum. While other apps focus specifically on the past, present, or future, Agenda is the only notes app that keeps track of each in a single timeline. Add notes for what is currently on your agenda, while you prepare other notes for an upcoming meeting. Use older notes as breadcrumbs to remind yourself why you took the actions you did. WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA? You can attach dates to individual notes, and even link them to events in your calendar. But you can also put them “On the Agenda”. Notes that are On the Agenda are given special status. They get added to a special overview in the sidebar so you can find them in a flash. THE 'MEANING FULL' TEXT EDITOR Agenda is a styled-text editor. Styled text is as easy to edit as plain text, but leads to visually stunning documents without breaking a sweat. Styles include headings, lists, indented blocks, and preformatted text. You focus on the meaning of your notes, and leave Agenda to handle the appearance.  The resulting documents look fantastic, and can be converted to other formats like Markdown and HTML. NOTE-ALLY ORGANIZED Group your projects into categories to make them easier to find, and order the notes for each project however you choose. You can drag them around, apply dates, or use a mixed approach. You can also collapse notes to save space. TAKING IT TO TASK Do you sometimes find yourself using your task manager for more than it is intended? Agenda is a notes app that has excellent support for tasks. It supports different list styles, including checklists, and allows mixing tasks with more extensive notes. There is also direct integration with the Reminders app, so you can add reminders with a due date to any task. SHARE NOTES AND PROJECTS A notes app is not very useful if you can't share what you create. With Agenda, you can print and share notes, even whole projects, in standard formats like PDF, RTF and Markdown. You can also use the Agenda archive format to exchange exact duplicates of your notes with other Agenda users, including any attached files. MANY DEVICES, ONE AGENDA Nobody wants data silo-ed on one device, so Agenda has apps for Mac, iPad, and iPhone, and they sync up via your iCloud or Dropbox account. PURCHASING AGENDA Agenda is free, with no time limits. You can use it forever, at no cost. Agenda does offer extra premium features that require an In App Purchase. If you decide to purchase an upgrade, you permanently unlock all current features across all of your eligible devices. Even better, any features we add in the 12 months following your purchase are included, and permanently unlocked as well. All yours to keep.
I’m little bit confused about ...
by evfffff on 2019/12/08 11:18
no doubts it is an excellent app! I paid full version right away after trial run. The subscription was little bit confusing, as my understanding I paid 25$ for just 1year premium features? So after 1year I still can use the premium feature , but not the features comes out after that, right? On the other hand I really hope these 2 features: - insert excel sheet - changeable app icon and more themes keep it up , agenda folks.
Lacks Major Features
by michaellporter on 2019/12/03 13:07
The app lacks the ability to embed links. You can't duplicate notes and you can't sort notes into order. By default new notes jump to the top of the screen and have to be manually dragged into order.
Hard to fathom, but great
by Jdb9 on 2019/11/26 23:09
You’ll stumble and swear but stick with it. I only wish it had a “mail to Agenda” feature like Things has. Then you could live completely in Agenda’s warm embrace. I also miss Things’s “Upcoming” list of tasks.
Please support korean..too many bugs.
by HJBent on 2019/11/26 03:20
Hello I love this app It is very nice app so i purchased premium service. i am korean so usually write korean in this app but it has some bugs to write korean 1. The last words dissappear after I hit the enter. 2. The hashtag cannot be used normally. 3. list system (- / 1.2.3... / o) is not working properly. and so on. Please support Korean seriously. I want to keep using this app. Thank you very much. p.s ) Do you have any idea of changing the app icon? It seems too unprofessional & drawing application...I think...
No multi-window support
by NSoto2011 on 2019/11/15 02:38
If they added support for this new iOS 13 feature I’d pay for premium. IMO it’s a must-have for an app like this.

Excellent application
Overly Complicate
by IDK man just let me comment on 2019/11/08 19:29
I don’t often use an Agenda app, but when I do, I expect to understand something to the timeline. It’s the most confusing, « modern » scheduling app.
Excellent App
by ChicagoCAM on 2019/11/06 22:14
Agenda is an outstanding App that I use all the time to organize client activity in my law practice as well as personal and family matters. Works beautifully and seamlessly with all devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone). Flexible for use by anybody. Tremendous support from the developers and the user community. Do yourself a favor and give it a chance to organize your life.
The Best Organization Tool
by Nineset on 2019/11/05 01:07
Agenda really has gotten so many things right. Combine with my iPad I can keep up with my daily tasks for home and work, so easily. It’s great that I can move between calendars and assign tasks by accounts. Works better than OneNote for meeting minutes. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I hope to see some web interface some day but with the current iPad and iPhone setup I don’t feel that it is missing.
Constant crashing for blind users
by WebGuy9402 on 2019/11/04 04:18
I am blind and use VoiceOver to navigate apps. The developers of this app have not accounted for the needs of user with disabilities. The opening movie is completely useless (except for some nice music) for blind users, and most of the icons used throughout the app are unlabeled. Furthermore, the app relies on gestures, rather than UI controls, so VoiceOver users cannot even reach many of the features, which are located in side panels (gestures fir which conflict with VoiceOver). This app has such potential, and I would really like to use it. For that to happen, though, the developers need to make significant changes.
Still Not for me
by Quark Gluon Plasma on 2019/10/31 02:42
Updated: It appears that Agenda puts a link into the notes field in iOS 13 Reminders, and the link doesn’t work from there. You have to manually move the link to the URL. Drag & drop doesn’t work. Agenda is ok out, but in is a disaster. I don’t want to cut & paste through my inbox. Updated: I tried this again and found the interface very fussy and disorganized. Just not good enough for anything useful. The lack of share sheets to get information into the app is at this point just an embarrassment for the developers. Original: I started to explore the iOS version and thought I had found something I liked. However, Agenda lacks the modern conveniences for getting content in via share sheets. The developer says they are coming. I attempted to use the app to organize the logistics of a big trip. The attempt was not successful. The organization by date is not useful for me, and I ended up using a Markdown-based notes app instead. This was easier and more flexible for me. Worth trying, but I won’t pursue it further.
Almost a 5 star app
by $ymbi0t3 on 2019/10/29 17:08
This app is missing two things. A widget and a watch app. Other than this it’s perfect and it completely changed the way I organize my day to day. I’m a computer science student and I work so I stay super busy and this app actually keeps me ahead of everything.
Notes not linking to calendar events
by BennieMac on 2019/10/28 09:10
Notes are not linking to calendar events.. PLEASE FIX
Agenda crazy awesome
by joshhus on 2019/10/27 18:25
Easy to use and set up!! Love it. Worth it
Not worth it at all
by reeeeeenie_2018 on 2019/10/19 13:16
I paid the $9.99 thinking extra features would make this more useful than Apple calendars and notes. But it is not. I am now out $9.99 as they won’t issue me a refund even though I have deleted the app and have absolutely no use for it. Apple calendars is easier to manage and all it does is just sync over the calendar. It’s just absolutely not even worth a penny. Just use notes and Apple calendar and skip this app, even the free version isn’t worth all the fuss. I don’t mind spending money on apps if they’re useful. This, not so much.
Great, but loads SLOOOOOWLY in iOS13
by Wiryan on 2019/10/16 07:21
I love everything about this app. Maybe a more word-processor like function rather than the current html-like(?) text editor would be great? So that we can mix font weight in the same line etc? Edit: the app took A MINUTE for my iPad Pro 10.5 and iPhone XR to load after iOS 13. Fix pleaaase?
A most needed 5 star application
by loureedtunes on 2019/10/10 03:39
Notes are great but finding them before you forget about them is a disaster. Agenda fills the gap. There are so many features and benefits to Agenda you MUST install it to find out for the yourself. Seek and ye shall find. Great tool for my use. I purchased it immediately. Thanks J
Really great app but...
by Anezzy on 2019/09/28 04:37
The app is great and it really works well for what I need it for but it keeps crashing and it’s making it hard to use now so can you please fix it thanks
Excellent App
by daccsed on 2019/09/26 09:46
This app is excellent for note taking! The customer support team was superb at resolving my issue and did it very promptly! Great product and customer support.
Buggy after the new update
by bluiflip on 2019/09/25 01:30
Scrolling jitter is a thing in this new version, making it almost unusable on my iphone X.
sugesstion
by 和很多很多很方便 on 2019/09/23 16:53
i have a suggestion,TODAY in the Overview tab should show more days' plans , such as : a week's plan
Tried a bunch, this is the best yet
by ejward13 on 2019/09/20 01:37
I have tried a bunch of different note taking apps and had mixed success with most. Agenda finds the right balance of being really simple to use but still offering good features. Easy to keep organized if you like to plan it out or to move notes or projects around if you want after the fact. I don’t use linking to events at all but I like using the reminders for action items after meetings. On the Agenda is great for meeting preparation: make your notes ahead of time, assign it to the right date and it’s there when you need it. Excellent works folks, keep it up!
stop saying non-trivial
by Shotokanfire on 2019/08/31 02:48
Every time I look at the list of feedback that seems to build up very quickly, I see a ton of complaints from the developers of this app about how non-trivial it is to ask for....anything. A constant excuse based on how few employees they have, even though they charge you for a year of meh updates. seems to be snarky or passive aggressive suggestions to valid frustrations, and the troubleshooting is painful. They seem really tired of people (as is evident by the snarky response to my review) Ya’ll. Is 2019. I’m seriously tempted to build a fixed model and just use that. Plus then I could at least be trusted with my own color theme choices.
Love the app and tech support
by elliott08 on 2019/08/21 09:22
I truly enjoy this app really has help to get things done , I also love the transparency from the developers. Wish more developers were like this .

One of the most comprehensive productivity tools I’ve come across
by Woof12345 on 2019/08/12 17:35
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!
Agenda was built for business owners with TONS of notes
by monkeysoncrunk on 2019/08/01 15:59
I came from Bear app. I was a power user. Sorting notes by hashtags seemed great. Until I had collected over 1000 notes in 2 years. Until I needed a structured process for not just taking notes, but thinking forward. Have you ever had that one idea, which you quickly noted... but never followed through on? Here’s probably what happened - that note got buried. Never to be seen again. Agenda changes that. Create an idea, set a FUTURE date. It’ll show up on your date based “newsfeed”, aka Agenda. P.s. I LOVE the payment model. Pay once and you OWN the app + and get free updates for a year. A year later, YOU choose if you want another years worth of updates. This is a beautiful model compared to making users “rent” apps that rarely get any updates. Keep it up Agenda team, you 💯!
Perfect!
by SwayMi on 2019/07/17 18:10
hooks into iOS data, uses progressive iOS ui features, clean, concise, intuitive
Agenda is an excellent productivity tool
by FJH1960 on 2019/07/16 01:02
After using most of the high-end productivity apps, I have begun to use Agenda. The only additional capability I recommend for this excellent app is to add the ability to use the Apple Pencil. F.J.H 07/15/2019
Really Close to Perfect for Productivity
by VegasDei on 2019/07/12 14:31
Just need share sheet to be five stars. It is a huge log jam for my workflow. Keep up the great work guys.
DEVS! Improvement Suggestion
by GabiDu3etGud! on 2019/07/12 07:34
Hi, I just got this app and already love it. There is only one thing this app needs to outdo everyone. For some time, Dropbox released a mac and phone application called Mailbox, which was FANTASTIC!!!!!! The best feature about it was that it operated liked Agenda but also persuaded users to archive mail that was no longer needed. You can try to disguise other mail platforms this way to mimic David Allen’s, “GTD”, but they’re just not the same. Mailbox failed and they shut it down. If you guys could release a free feature email system that is safe and helps me stay organized with all of the features you already have, I and probably the rest of the world will be your customers for life. - Gabe
Favorite notes app and I’ve tried them all
by Kraudel on 2019/07/10 13:37
I rarely take the time to review apps but this one is well worth it. Great design/UI, love the calendar and reminders integrations, and linking notes to each other. I gladly paid for premium and they continue to add great features with a strong roadmap coming. One thing that would make it even better: integration to Asana.
Drawing please!!!!
by JinanGeGe on 2019/07/10 00:39
Add support for drawing with Apple Pencil please!!!! As a perfectionist, I cannot accept that such a good and beautiful app to be imperfect!
Great!
by Ghostsem on 2019/07/07 13:14
This app is awesome. It’s EXACTLY the kind of app I need— a notes app synced with my calendar and reminders, with capabilities to add images, links, and even tags within the note. That being said, it would be really nice if this were available for Chromebooks and Windows. I don’t have a Mac, and I’m probably not taking notes on my phone in class or a professional meeting. That extra feature— along with the ability to sync all those notes— would make this app pretty much perfect. I would be willing to pay to have universal device syncing. All in all, this app is an amazing versatile tool that anyone could use, and I highly recommend it.
No way to add photos on iPhone
by Okbutwhynotbetter on 2019/07/05 17:31
I’ve read and complied with all forum and dev instructions. “Press curser in note and use arrows to navigate black menu to add photo or camera”. It’s not there! Uninstalled reinstalled. Pressed as said but still no add photo period. Why go thru this? I’m about to delete and ask for refund. For $10 it should work correctly Many others have same problem. Mac might work right but they’re not getting any more money from me until this is corrected
Clear concept, useful from the start, and more to come
by Ricardo J. Salvador on 2019/07/05 12:14
Wow, wow, wow. This app is impressive because: (1) It addresses a universal need of all knowledge workers (planning, organizing, monitoring and documenting tasks and projects within a single environment); (2) It has clearly been well thought out; and (3) It is well-designed by a team that is being disciplined about its concept and execution. The developers describe this app as “date-focused note-taking,” and I’d expand that to say that it is the beginning of a “context-aware journaling app.” The key feature of the app is integration. The developers know that when you write notes about your work they exist in context of a timeline, mileposts, and a set of collaborators, and that you’ll commonly have other “assets” associated with any given task/project (e.g., media, documents, URLs.) Users would typically have to juggle between various apps to “manually” coordinate all these elements of managing work. With Agenda, you can remain within one environment and focus on creating nicely structured projects incorporating dates, reminders and links to other notes within the app as well as to external URLs. This is done through reliable system-level integration with your Calendar and Reminders databases, through a rich set of tags to mark people, dates, priorities and any user-defined attribute that comes to mind (very handy to later search and filter through all your notes), and through the ability to insert photos and attach documents. One of the developers has committed to develop this app for a decade, and one can see the immense possibilities of further extending this “context-aware” paradigm to further integrate what—to date—we’ve been forced to stiffly handle via separate, specialized applications (themselves mostly electronic versions of the antiquated paper/pen/filing cabinet/transom workflows.) The concept is simultaneously ground-breaking as well as “obvious” once you immerse in it (because it is so well suited to the way most of us actually do our work.) This is so shockingly innovative that it is difficult to describe the achievement of delivering something that makes so much sense. A good hour spent with the documentation and teaching examples will be time well spent. As is (without question) the $25 fee for the premium version that integrates across iOS and Mac OS platforms (a quite functional basic function is available at no cost.) To judge from the way the app has launched, this is money very well earned by a sharp team of reflective developers from whom I’m expecting much more (that’s not cheerleading or new user infatuation, it is based on examine their list of upcoming features, including Pencil integration—no doubt meaning ability to eventually insert drawings—as well as the ability to use the system Share sheet to accept input directed to specific projects and tasks.)
No share menu??
by Jenderle7 on 2019/07/05 04:13
Great design and decent features but no share menu is mind blowing to me. Still scratching my head....
Great App!

Best note taking app ever exists

Getting better all the time
by Pnoahw on 2019/07/02 03:19
I love them they added reminders connection.
Lots of potential
by NYBombers7 on 2019/06/28 18:18
Seems great, 1 wish is Apple Pencil support. I actually just assumed this would be here already. I’ll be waiting for that to really use it
Pretty great, but usability + readability dealbreakers
by insipidlight on 2019/06/06 22:53
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).
Lots of promise but keeps crashing in multitasking/side-by-side view
by rstrainde on 2019/05/22 18:18
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.
Good but needs work
by Merf merf merf on 2019/05/22 14:30
It’s a very powerful app but the formatting UX is really quirky and kind of frustrating to use. Bullet points delete when they shouldn’t, context menus close unexpectedly, the indicators for the slide out menus are hard to see. It feels like the devs don’t actually use their app sometimes. Also as a side note, your request for review popped up for me while I was in the middle of typing a note, closed the keyboard and made me lose my train of thought. Rating requests should happen when the user is at a natural stopping point, not in the middle of trying to use your app.
Maybe in a year it’ll be ready for iOS
by D9 on 2019/05/19 12:54
Just seeing some of the other posts, plus my own 1-year experience, Agenda is an app with wonderful potential but not currently for the iOS version...maybe in another year. My personal hang up with it (plus many of others’ issues with UI, images, and styling) is the poor-to-none state of iOS Share functionality. If I need to clip webpage content or grab excerpts from an email to add to a note or task, Agenda has no option within Share to accomplish. If I have a PDF reference file to include, no way to use Share. Again, it has good potential and many unique features. A bit of a different workflow paradigm but one that can be easily learned. Yet there is way too much difficulty/work needed for daily usage as a serious iOS note-taking tool. See ya next year, Agenda!
Estupenda ! Justo lo que buscaba
by Tuboka81 on 2019/05/17 22:06
Después de instalar y desinstalar casi todas las aplicaciones de productivos similares a esta , creo que es con la que más he acertado , quería una aplicación minimalista que me permitiese tener mis apuntes importantes sincronizados con mi MacBook, es bastante completa y mejor que muchas ! Puntos a recomendar : la opción de ponerla en español sería genial, y un apartado para Tareas (Tasks) ; quizás también y porque no, un módulo para notas rápidas ! Sería la “Agenda Ideal” ( al menos para mi) !!
Ironic icon as it the app doesn’t support Apple Pencil
by MDAL68130 on 2019/05/08 12:49
The potential for the app is there, but taunting us with Pencil support every time we launch the app is just cruel. I continue to use notability until pencil support is added.
Life changing app
by Isavma on 2019/05/05 01:34
It was difficult to have the app synced between devices. But after I was able to sync, it’s the perfect app. Just waiting for the reminders!
Elegant, frictionless, indispensable
by Liz I on 2019/05/03 17:49
Started a new project in Agenda today and was moved by my gratitude to write a review. Agenda helps me track, develop and manage my teaching, my taxes, my studio projects and everything else. It’s uncluttered, nimble and a joy to use. It’s now replaced other, more limited note-taking and to-do apps.
Version 5.4 Crashes on my XR
by fasmith on 2019/05/02 20:49
[[[ Updated Info: It looks like calendar integration is causing the crashes. I was able to get the app to start by turning off calendar integration. Error report sent. Re-Linking the calendar after opening Agenda causes the app to crash—again, just from foreground activity. I can still see the active app in the app switcher. ]]] I 💚Agenda, but the one of the recent updates has rendered it unusable on my iOS device—XR. The app loads to a black screen in landscape orientation, flashes and then backgrounds itself. I can see the actual app in the app switcher preview, but i can’t ever bring it forward to use it. (Note: I’ve tried all standard approaches to fixing the problem—including restarting the app, restarting the phone (with app closed), reinstalling the app. Agenda heros, help!
No spellcheck?
by Eirura on 2019/05/01 12:54
That kinda bothers me. Usually spellcheck is a basic feature in most notes type apps. There is no tag features. I think there might be but it is such a complicated way to do so. What I do like this app is that I can have a project and bombarded it with notes and add reminders to it. There is a category feature which is useful but since there is no tags, or subcategories, it isn’t as helpful. I might go back to Bear and set a reminder on my notes separately.
Works on all my devices
by Pykachu10 on 2019/04/29 15:51
The app itself is very clean and intuitive, I like the breakdown of categories -> projects -> notes. The 2 most amazing features are: 1) there doesn’t seem to be a device limit, I have 2 macs and an iPad and iPhone I use regularly and I installed Agenda on all devices and it works great. Other apps like Evernote have a 2 device limit, making them almost unusable for me. 2) NO REGISTRATION! I repeat, you open the app, write something, then download and open the app on another device and they are in sync. It must be using Apple’s iCloud or something but I don’t have to create an account, it just automatically knows who you are wherever you install the device. Pretty convenient! EDIT: deleted this app, it’s sporadic whether my changes will sync to my other devices which makes this unusable for me. Leaving 3 stars because it’s still a nice app if you only have 1 device.
Warming up to it, needs some improvements
by Matt Agnello on 2019/04/24 23:13
Agenda’s a weird one. I’ve used a bunch of different notes apps, eventually landed on Apple Notes as a simple place for my digital outboard brain, I use iThoughtsX for brainstorming, and I already use Day One as a journal, but Agenda’s aesthetic and novel date-focused design intrigued me. I found the Category/Project very intuitive to use, very similar to other notes apps. I love using Markdown, and Agenda does a good job of being a WYSIWYG Markdown text editor. I struggled to work the dates part into my workflow, though. I occasionally have meetings where I need to capture notes, but not often. I mostly work on creative projects where I’m capturing information about a topic. I kept *thinking* about Agenda, though, so I kept pulling it up and experimenting with it for a while, and I’ve started to understand how to use On the Agenda, dates, and attaching to events to help make sure I see the relevant information when I need to more easily than other notes apps. The thing that keeps killing it for me, despite enjoying it, is how difficult it is to get things *into* Agenda that don’t involve typing into it. I’m used to pulling up an Apple Note, hitting +, taking a picture of a whiteboard, and having it attached to that note forever. Or using the share sheet on a website to drop a URL into a note for that topic. Agenda doesn’t work quite like that. Attachments are buried in a cog menu attached to the note, which is not nearly seamless enough for me on mobile. Drag and drop works great on Mac, though. I think Agenda has potential, hoping one day it has the features that will enable it to work with my workflow better.
Nice but needs more REAL PREMIUM features
by Edward the Human on 2019/04/24 11:39
Liked the app and bought the premium features albeit too basic to be premium features like ability to change accent colors or enable line spacing. There are a few must have features that are missing but I’ll name just a couple on top of my head: 1. Better subcategory implementation 2. Collaborations with others. But all-in-all, it is a very nice looking app and serves its purpose for basic usage. The premium costs 12.99 and you’ll get all upcoming features for the next 12 months. I hope the developers will not hold off many features just to stretch them out through a 12-month period. I’m sure they won’t do that! Just keep ‘em new features coming!
Doesn’t link to any of Apple or iOSs data sources
by TheoTheSilly on 2019/04/23 13:41
The idea behind this app is brilliant but the developers have decided not to integrate with any of Apples own data sources like calendar, contacts, tasks, or notes. They have tried to build their own brand into the icons, experience, and design, but that forces you to use a tutorial. The tutorial then steps you through the developers extremely opinionated ideas on how the app is used. This sort of on-boarding is frustrating. My data from my own calendars, tasks, and notes is missing. My normal approach on UX, modeled and built on 12 years of using iOS, is ignored. Then the app asks me for $9.99, which I will gladly give: I own +$10,000 of Apple gear. I use it all to do my job and provide for my family. $9.99 a year is nothing. But I am not going to hand it over when I don’t see my data preloaded and the developer is so opinionated on the UX.
It’s ok.
by Eriptron on 2019/04/23 05:17
But really nothing to write home about. So it’s an integrated note taking, task manager app that ‘can’ link to your calendar (for $10). The notes writer is fairly basic. I prefer Notes Writer Pro. The multiple device iCloud syncing of multiple Agenda apps doesn’t work. All devices are logged in with the same Apple ID. Nothing. Zip. Nada.
No ability to share to or from the app
by carlvjack on 2019/04/22 21:38
the lack of the ability to send to or receive from Agenda makes it difficult to integrate into my workflow. If you have a Mac which I don’t you can import but if you are only on iPad or iPhone your notes are pretty isolated.
an amazing planner!
by Leila O. on 2019/04/20 13:19
i use this app as a student and it works wonderfully. i especially value the syncing feature between my ipad and iphone. the flow of the app works well and the design is very pleasing. the support team responded very quickly to the issue i had. thank you!
The app I've been looking for!
by PenguinFred on 2019/04/14 15:16
It combines note taking, bullet lists, todo lists, calendar events, and images, and organizes meeting notes by date. Wow! This has greatly streamlined my meeting notes workflow. Thank you for an awesome app ;-)
Fantastic UI, little buggy
by TheGreatKev on 2019/04/14 14:14
Agenda is incredible to look at, across all devices. It opens quickly, has good dark and light themes, and I love the way it organizes notes by project and date. It's quickly replaced my Reminder, Notes, and Calendar app. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the minor bugs. I started a new note once and it linked the first sentence to a completely unrelated URL that I had put in a previous note. More than a few times the UI has glitched between half dark/half light theme. And every time I take something "off the Agenda" before I've typed in the body of the note it clears the title and I have to rename it. Overall, still very happy with the product, especially for something free!
Great app.. but
by Badadu on 2019/04/13 14:46
I am an Apple person.. but I prefer working on a PC other than a Mac.. So.. I would give a 5 star if my notes could be synced on a pc as well soon. Wishful thinking ?? A

No way to recover deleted notes
by onecomplaint on 2019/04/02 23:34
This app is amazing EXCEPT there’s no way to recover recently deleted notes. Without the ability to recover files, anything deleted is literally gone for good, something I didn’t realize until after I purchased the premium pack. Without this simple thing, the app really loses its appeal and it’s reliability in storing information. It’s so sad considering how many amazing features it does include :/ But the inability to recover lost files is simply irredeemable
A must have for new managers
by Mufasa804 on 2019/03/30 12:48
I recently got promoted and needed a way to manage notes, staff, and meetings. Agenda was the answer, the app works great and syncs perfectly between macOS and iOS. I tried OneNote and got frustrated by its performance on macOS, Agenda feels ten times snappier. Thank you!
Great Product
by RoMuzik on 2019/03/22 01:07
Since we live in a multi platform world, there should be Apple Watch support and cross platform to android and possibly Windows. This has the potential to overtake Evernote.
Great app that’s always improving
by Shelunda1234 on 2019/03/21 20:56
Agenda was a very good app when it came out, but now it is a great one. Their particular subscription model and active community have supported continuous improvement. Is it perfect? No, but it’s closer than anything other app I’ve used. It’s my planner, journal, to do list, notebook, and calendar. Can I write a book or research paper with it? No. But who knows? Maybe someday! There are a few apps I subscribe to and they are all good, but Agenda is the only one I don’t think I’ll mind renewing. It’s really that good.
Not sure
by MrClean11 on 2019/03/19 02:13
I was charged twice for the few premium features and I’ve never had a problem like that before.
No access to menu
by wolfishmoon on 2019/03/18 21:57
I downloaded the app and paid for one year of premium access and, I can’t even create a task! I have to copy the sample project into mine and edit on top of that. Not sure where are these features hidden but i can’t format anything other than the font style...
Love this app, but
by SSmith-2019 on 2019/03/16 10:47
As noted, I love this app and very glad to pay the coin for the app. I would however wish it had a Apple Watch version to go along with it. I love the ability to seamlessly use my work flow across both my iPhone and my Apple Watch and adding the Agenda app would be one of, if not the best uses for that. Hope it makes this the fact in future updates. Thanks to the developer for the awesome work so far. Best $ spent IMO
Great idea but it keeps crashing
by Butters48 on 2019/03/09 05:53
I’ve used this in the past but the past few days I’ve used it to plan vacations. It seems the issue mainly occurs when importing photos. It keeps crashing or hanging. It’s a let down since the main reason I wanted to use this was for the ability to add photos. Hopefully the fix this problem. Also, I wish there was a toggle to keep the smaller images opposed to insert the full size photo when subscribing to the app.
HELP... RECEIVED!!
by Chgo129366 on 2019/03/04 00:15
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 idea, frustrating implementation
by scottaw66 on 2019/03/03 19:18
I really wanted to like this app, but I can’t. I’m replacing it with a new Drafts 5 Workspace. Why? Drafts is an automation powerhouse. Agenda is close, but no cigar. The x-callback-url and Shortcut action support falls just short of what I need. Integration with to-do apps is frustratingly insufficient. Finally, the UI is REALLY annoying with note selection and I hate how the projects are just a sidebar and you can’t just show a master project list screen. Tags are there, but good luck. There’s not tag autocomplete and the way you have to enter them is a pain. Best app icon, best concept, poor implementation except for people who don’t want or don’t go deep with automation and cross-app integration and data sharing.
Allows me to be creative and productive simultaneously
by lucianolang1 on 2019/03/01 01:08
However, there are still some bugs. Nothing that prevents the use of the app but are still arrrggh, such as: The light alerts blinding me when on dark mode The white view when I move a note to the top of the project
HELP! Can’t login after premium upgrade
by MtnShootr on 2019/02/26 01:25

Daily planner/Bullet Journal
by Blackreignbeauty on 2019/02/24 04:09
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!

How to backup notes?
by Maysam b on 2019/02/14 05:48
How do I backup my notes?
Didn’t like
by BobYourUncle on 2019/02/13 06:08
Tried it. I guess I'm too used to the way Apple Notes organizes my notes. First by Folder, then by a list of my notes in a list view. Once I imported everything into Agenda, it was just one hot mess of a long page. Couldn't deal with it, so I deleted everything.
Can’t use until pencil is supported
by jeffruth on 2019/02/12 17:45
I’ll just keep waiting I suppose. I want to use this app so bad, but a HUGE feature appears to be missing. Please add Pencil support!
Not ready for prime time
by PeterAnthony on 2019/02/12 15:16
I initially loved this app. The promise of categories AND tags, dark mode, tying into my calendar etc. made it seem like the second coming of notes apps, but it is not for those who already have hundreds of notes, many of which are long i.e. require some scrolling to get to the bottom. The search in Agenda is not comparable to Simplenote or even the Apple notes app. Simplenote gives results almost instantaneously, while Agenda takes seconds to bring up results which often for me did not seem right, as I knew the results existed, but often the search results did not come up. This sometimes had to do with what was selected before you began searching e.g. selecting “search all” but this was not a seamless or quick execution as it is on Simplenote which I am returning to. Also, and this I could not put up with any longer, the search results are not abridged so if you have many long notes you have to scroll through not only a score of results but the full-length of each result. The results are also not integrated into spotlight or iOS so that you can’t use your device to search but must go into the app. You also can’t share to the app. When sharing a clip or a webpage, every other app on your device is listed as an option but not Agenda. The developers say all of these concerns (and I have others) are on their drawing board, but I can’t wait. After a month of using, I realized that this app was killing my productivity. If you are starting from a blank slate then you won’t be bothered so much by my experience, but if you are an intensive notes user and are planning on importing your notes into Agenda (which works well btw), then I advise you to wait. I expect that they’ll iron out these difficulties in a year or two, but I can’t wait. I also realize that I don’t need this to schedule what’s on my agenda. I’m already using a great app called SkedPal for that and this function of Agenda I will never use. So beware. This app is not ready for prime time IF you have already hundreds of notes and need to be able to quickly find them as well as integrate into your workflow of other apps. Can’t be done as of today. Will happen but again I can’t wait. I wish these guys luck, as it is a beautiful app, but I can’t pay to be in beta with my money and my productivity.
An almost dream come true for certain teachers
by Jerm@ine on 2019/02/12 11:49
3.5 stars is what I really wanna give. The app is a teachers dream for lesson plans. There is one huge feature that is missing though, so huge I choose not to use the app exclusively, despite how good this app is...and that is handwriting with the Apple Pencil. I guess I’m a part of this weird group of teachers who use their Apple Pencil for writing lesson plans, but also desire to use their keyboard as well. If they add that this would be my number one go to app.
Not useful.
by jasijohn on 2019/02/08 04:24
I’ve tried to use on I-phone 6s. A waste of time. Cool layout, but a calendar is more efficient. It will let you write notes. They just lay there in the way, refusing to be filed away. You can attach things to things, as if that were of some use. Oh, and can I get back the $9.99 I spent for the “enhanced” version? It lets you earn badges by hanging out online with other users. It says you can create calendar items. Mayhaps you can. I couldn’t. I had to go to my calendar app to create item which then linked to Agenda. Why not just stick with the calendar app?
Love, love, love it!
by Ykanel on 2019/02/07 06:53
I’m very pleased with this app and how I am able to organize notes and due dates. I’m a student and keeping track with homework and exams has always been my issues and this app has showed me an easier way to keep my homework and class notes all together. I’m giving it a four-star rating because I’m unable to use my apple pen while taking notes.
Need the ability to sync WITHOUT using iCloud
by lanwarrior on 2019/02/05 02:51
This app is excellent for managing projects and taking notes at work. Unfortunately, the app can only sync data using your personal iCloud account. While it may work for personal usage, it doesn’t work well with those who use it at work because many companies block personal iCloud account and iCloud Drive on company’s laptop and iOS devices. Given what this app can do, I suspect many people will want to use this at work. Hopefully Agenda will have its own sync solution, similar to Things and MoneyWiz. I’d gladly pay for a subscription to offset the infrastructure cost use to host the syncing servers.
A very useful app
by commodore_k on 2019/02/04 10:27
I am current working on my thesis and use Agenda to log work I have done for the day and keep track of what I still have to do. I use it to record ideas, questions, concerns and processes that I have to be able to replicate and to think through findings. I also use the app to keep track of personal stuff — thoughts, quotes and memories. I love that I can keep these two kinds of notes separate. Tags make it very easy to find something. The developer is quick to fix bugs and the pricing mode is generous. Definitely give this app a try. See if it fits your needs.
still using it
by ds001. on 2019/01/31 23:14
I was looking for a digital #bujo app. I found it in Agenda. Is it the best? I’m not sure. There are a ton of apps in this space and I’m still using it. That to me is the mark of a good app, it delivers on what I need it for so I don’t need go elsewhere. They make regular improvements and their support is really good. For me its a 5/5.
Great app. User interface need to be improved or redesigned.
by SN-KD on 2019/01/30 06:20

Good functionality with terrible performance
by themanchicken on 2019/01/24 11:50
The functionality in this application is marvelous, if you’re willing to wait for it. The performance is so bad that sometimes an “undo” operation, or a new note, takes 30-60 seconds to complete. Throw network problems into the mix and editing individual notes is just impossible. I love the app, but the performance is so bad that I can’t use it. The performance issues have reached the point where the app is unusable, and they don’t seem to be getting addressed. When I try to create a note attached to a meeting, it loads my project list but is super choppy scrolling it, and then somehow loads other notes rather than creating new ones. This seems to affect both mobile and desktop versions. At this point I’m really not using the app anymore. (Last attempted to use, without much success, 2019-01-24)

One fatal flaw keeps it from perfection
by T. Michael Martin on 2019/01/23 14:48
Firstly, although I had a disappointing experience after paying for both the iOS and Mac versions, I love this app. It’s genuinely a life-changer at work. It’s brilliant, useful, and super intuitive. The problem? Currently there is only ONE way to back up your notes and sync across multiple devices: iCloud. And my employer only allows Google syncing. Which means that all my notes from work are effectively stuck on my work laptop, can’t be accessed anywhere else, and will be lost forever if something happens to the app or computer. ☹️ I understand why the developers only support iCloud: The vast majority of customers will be totally okay with using it as their backup avenue. But there are also a lot of business teams who would love to adopt this app, and can’t because they don’t want their employees’ business notes being backed up via their personal iCloud accounts, rather than the company’s Google accounts, or even a proprietary backup from Agenda (much like Things 3, another must-have app, does). I reached out to the devs about supporting Google sync, and they were polite but also fairly dismissive, basically stating “No matter what service we use for syncing/backup, some people won’t be happy. So we’re focusing on improving the app’s features, and maybe one day we’ll look at other sync options.” I soooo want to use this more; I paid $25 to have access to both versions. But until they make the data both safe and more accessible, I can’t completely recommend the purchase.
Beware: subscription. Better products out there you can buy outright.
by ASmart7429 on 2019/01/17 01:25
Similar (or, in my view, superior) products don’t require a ‘subscription’ after initial purchase. The subscribed features don’t warrant the additional cost and leave me feeling that this company doesn’t value its customers enough.
Powerful & Delightful
by jbalance on 2019/01/13 19:09
+ Love the date centered design, it makes this app replace a few of my project planning and note taking apps. + Best iCloud integration that I have experienced with a App. + The Tagging (Subjects & People) is beautifully designed and integrated into the whole system. - Needs a way to add Apple Pencil drawing to notes. - Needs a way to take advantage of iCloud collaboration on a Note. - Needs a way to add an audio recording into a Note. - Needs a way to share
Just one more thing...
by IAmLight2029 on 2019/01/09 20:52
This is a nice note taking app. It’s sort bare bones in terms of ways you can organize the text, but that’s fine it makes things simpler for me. But one feature (at least in the Mac version) I would like to have would be to be able to write text next to an image, not just underneath the image. Something similar to wrap text. So I’m able write notes about the image itself, separately from the rest of the notes. That’s the one thing I would add to this already solid app.
Works like my own mind!
by Ripley2007 on 2019/01/08 21:39
This was so easy to learn. I dumped everything swirling around in my mind into notes and it’s organized like a timeline! Very little effort. I am even make notes for a future date as a “to do”. Such a relief to have it out of my head and stored on my Mac, my iPhone and my iPad. The best anti-anxiety remedy! Instantaneous syncing so I’m good to go from one device to another on the fly. The text styling is wonderful. Make a text note or a checklist, bold or italicized. Love the Calendar sync. I can plan in real time with my other commitments. I bought the full program and don’t regret it at all. Looking forward to future developments.
Brilliant, simple, beautiful, fascinating
by MisterExploder on 2019/01/08 02:04
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.

Just starting out with it but already I’m seeing so many possibilities! What an efficient way to track projects; the sample really comes in handy to see what’s possible with Agenda. Will come back later to review after using awhile. Will no doubt upgrade to support developer. Highly recommend!
A remarkable beginning
by Gprof on 2018/05/31 15:41
This app impressed me more out of the box than anything I have tried in a while. The changes from what loosely similar apps do seem at first incremental but are powerful in a way that opens up very plausible workflows. The key thing is turning a static collection of notes into something that can flow with your calendar - it took me a little while to grasp the intent, but when it clicked and I realized it is not just a notes app replacement I could imagine lots of immediate uses. It is well worth taking the time to find and learn all the features - there is quite a bit hiding under the slick surface (maybe I am slow, but it was the second day before I found the settings button on the right hand slide-in panel) and I already see several reviews complaining about the absence of things that are actually there in the program. You can’t insert images yet but I see from their blog it is likely in the pipeline along with other things, and I happily paid for premium. Thanks to the developers!
Life changing at work
by 600 pieces on 2018/11/25 09:59
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.

Lots of promise but keeps crashing in multitasking/side-by-side view
by rstrainde on 2019/05/22 18:18
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.
Amazing
by joyhawk63 on 2018/06/05 14:04
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!
by mmakkaylla on 2018/06/06 14:43
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!!!
Worth a try

The interface is slick, using gestures intuitively. Slide right for settings and calendar, slide left for notebooks or projects. Get started with a home and work notebook and start adding notes/todo items in there, you’ll soon find yourself with an app worth checking. This is the closest an app has come to simulating the notebook experience on my phone. I’m a freelancer and todo list believer, also an avid note taker. When things don't have specific deadlines, but you need a checklist along side journal entries or notes, much like you would have if you journal, this gives you an Agenda view with things you can be working on, and a today view for things you really should tackle today. Long time productivity app user, first time I felt compelled to write a review and say YES!
One of the most comprehensive productivity tools I’ve come across
by Woof12345 on 2019/08/12 17:35
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!
Pretty great, but usability + readability dealbreakers
by insipidlight on 2019/06/06 22:53
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
by mitya_103 on 2018/05/30 16:17
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
by MisterExploder on 2019/01/08 02:04
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
by Blackreignbeauty on 2019/02/24 04:09
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.
by JXB-00 on 2018/08/20 04:50
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.
Fantastic UI, little buggy
by TheGreatKev on 2019/04/14 14:14
Agenda is incredible to look at, across all devices. It opens quickly, has good dark and light themes, and I love the way it organizes notes by project and date. It's quickly replaced my Reminder, Notes, and Calendar app. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the minor bugs. I started a new note once and it linked the first sentence to a completely unrelated URL that I had put in a previous note. More than a few times the UI has glitched between half dark/half light theme. And every time I take something "off the Agenda" before I've typed in the body of the note it clears the title and I have to rename it. Overall, still very happy with the product, especially for something free!
Great!
by Ghostsem on 2019/07/07 13:14
This app is awesome. It’s EXACTLY the kind of app I need— a notes app synced with my calendar and reminders, with capabilities to add images, links, and even tags within the note. That being said, it would be really nice if this were available for Chromebooks and Windows. I don’t have a Mac, and I’m probably not taking notes on my phone in class or a professional meeting. That extra feature— along with the ability to sync all those notes— would make this app pretty much perfect. I would be willing to pay to have universal device syncing. All in all, this app is an amazing versatile tool that anyone could use, and I highly recommend it.
Tried a bunch, this is the best yet
by ejward13 on 2019/09/20 01:37
I have tried a bunch of different note taking apps and had mixed success with most. Agenda finds the right balance of being really simple to use but still offering good features. Easy to keep organized if you like to plan it out or to move notes or projects around if you want after the fact. I don’t use linking to events at all but I like using the reminders for action items after meetings. On the Agenda is great for meeting preparation: make your notes ahead of time, assign it to the right date and it’s there when you need it. Excellent works folks, keep it up!
Maybe in a year it’ll be ready for iOS
by D9 on 2019/05/19 12:54
Just seeing some of the other posts, plus my own 1-year experience, Agenda is an app with wonderful potential but not currently for the iOS version...maybe in another year. My personal hang up with it (plus many of others’ issues with UI, images, and styling) is the poor-to-none state of iOS Share functionality. If I need to clip webpage content or grab excerpts from an email to add to a note or task, Agenda has no option within Share to accomplish. If I have a PDF reference file to include, no way to use Share. Again, it has good potential and many unique features. A bit of a different workflow paradigm but one that can be easily learned. Yet there is way too much difficulty/work needed for daily usage as a serious iOS note-taking tool. See ya next year, Agenda!
More and more impressed
by ToddHagler on 2018/08/27 01:41
I have to wonder if the people who are giving bad reviews took enough time to learn to use the app. At first I was not impressed and did not understand the brilliance of Agenda. I even deleted it thinking it had nothing special to offer. After a few days of wondering why it got an Apple award I figured I must have missed something. So I downloaded it again for a second look. I'm so glad I did. The app is really amazing. The features and syncing you get for free will be more than enough for most users. Paying for the upgrade, a one time purchase, will help support ongoing development. Agenda's approach is unique and you'll need to spend a little time with it to see its genius. After initially feeling it had nothing to offer I now have it installed on my mac, iPad, and iPhone. I'm using it for my notes, shopping lists, research notes, and journal. Oh, and yes, for my agenda. I'm looking forward to seeing how it continues to develop. I haven't been this intrigued or felt such promise for an app in a long time.
Perfect for my workflow
by Mr. Trout Snout on 2018/05/31 18:50
I have been using Agenda on my Mac for a few months now, and having an iOS companion app is wonderful. I use it now on my iPad and iPhone. And the ability to link info out of Agenda directly to a calendar appointment is sweeeet! I am not a power user of the app by any means, but I love creating projects with simple checklists that I can then move to calendar tasks with ease. It is exactly what I need to keep track of multiple projects and multiple checklists. I also use it like a simple text editor, often composing information first in Agenda, then transferring it to a document, email, or text. I love the simplicity of this app!
Already some shortcomings and bugs
by GtrInLA on 2018/06/06 07:29
First thing I tried to do was connect an event to my cal for a Reminder but it didn’t see it. So I changed it from a Reminder to some other custom field, then went back to see it found the changed event in my cal. So I figured hmmm, let me try changing it to a Reminder to see if it stays connected and it did. Now when I try connecting reminders it works... fixed the bug on my own but this was the FIRST task I did. Then I noticed you can only link to one event on one day? Well that doesn’t make sense because we can have many meetings on separate days of the year all related to one single event/task. Maybe I misunderstood what this app is? Is there a black mode? Sooo bright and disturbing for my wife. I’ll check back...
Works like my own mind!
by Ripley2007 on 2019/01/08 21:39
This was so easy to learn. I dumped everything swirling around in my mind into notes and it’s organized like a timeline! Very little effort. I am even make notes for a future date as a “to do”. Such a relief to have it out of my head and stored on my Mac, my iPhone and my iPad. The best anti-anxiety remedy! Instantaneous syncing so I’m good to go from one device to another on the fly. The text styling is wonderful. Make a text note or a checklist, bold or italicized. Love the Calendar sync. I can plan in real time with my other commitments. I bought the full program and don’t regret it at all. Looking forward to future developments.
A great app or project and program managers
by P10pablo on 2018/11/14 01:45
This app was a recommendation from a host on Macbreak Weekly. I use Agenda when I’m really trying to focus on some client issues and need to have a repository for referring to things. Agenda has often times shown me when I need to incorporate a company wide means of communicating and I do a lot of prototyping here. As an example I used to create weekly roundup for client and then the most immediate things would go into a master doc and ultimately that master doc went from being an email and is now a shared company document where my team works to deal with the most pressing issues. Agenda helps me to focus.
Exciting!
by Papabear19 on 2018/09/10 19:37
I really love this app. I’d been dreaming of something & I think this is it. iPhone was so basic upon first arrival & Apple has done a wonderful job sticking to simplicity. That said I felt it was time to ratch it up a notch when it comes to productivity as I felt so pulled apart when trying to move from calendar to notes back to calendar then over to reminders. I fell like this work, to bring this tools together while still having independent uses for each, while also trying into built in apps (like adding to calendar) is unprecedented in iOS. This app rocks! Kudos I hope apple buys your framework & just integrates it.
Quality App & Free? I bought it...
by turnWaters on 2018/05/31 01:10
Without thinking because this approach to sales is just so classy! I want to reward this behavior as much as possible! And the APP? It’s perfection and easily worth the upgrade to premium! It is exactly what I’ve been wanting from a notes/tasks/etc. standpoint! Wow! Devs... Congrats on your app release! Wishing you lots of luck and $ 🤣. ONE LAST THING...when you get around to making improvements or adjustments...can you please incorporate the black theme? Please? Now that I’ve experienced iPhoneX’s OLED screen...my eyes have been spoiled! Your app is beautiful but just imagine it in pure black on an iPhoneX? It would be a stunner!! Congrats again! Love it!!!
Unique but needs one feature
by music-major on 2018/08/22 08:32
Agenda is unique among App Store apps. I have been searching for a calendar based note taking application for a while and Agenda is the only one that I have found that comes close. There is a need out there for it and Agenda addresses that need. However one of the features that I and others have been wanting is support for Apple Pencil and handwritten notes. The ability to add handwritten notes would make it so much more useful to me. I like the app but I doubt I will invest any more in it until support for Apple Pencil has been added.
Similar to a things 3 but significantly cheaper
by ourielm on 2018/06/09 19:22
I always found Things 3 to be the best app for getting yourself organized, but could never convince myself to spend the money to have the app on the IPhone, Ipad and Mac (I have it on the phone only). Had they bundled it, I’d probably have fall for it. Enters Agenda, that offers a similar set of features for a fraction of the price, even for free for some more than basic features, and even offers a well thought price structure when purchasing the app for the phone, the iPad and the computer. Well done.
Productivity Enhancement
by TechAdict on 2018/06/14 21:04
I really really want to love Agenda. Coming from an Evernote user, Agenda takes an interesting approach to task, notes, calendar, and history for all these. I sincerely appreciate the workflow and layout. While it’s not entirely intuitive (i.e. formal GTD system), I had no issues picking it up and getting going. That’s probably one of its best features; the ability to work it the way you want. The ONLY reason I deleted the app, is the lack of image support. I imported some notes from the stock notes app, then realized that all the images would not come over. I understand that it’s a focused note/task/history app, and images may interfere with that method. An image is sometimes the quickest and most convenient way to get info down. I can completely see myself coming back and subbing to Agenda in the future if image support is implemented.
Simplenote to Agenda
by GreatVentures on 2018/07/29 16:30
I’ve been an avid Simplenote user for years and as the name implies, it’s power is in its simplicity. Throughout my use I time-stamped every entry because I needed to reference the information both future (I included future items I needed to do by certain dates) and back accordingly. After porting a project into Agenda, time stamping is more natural, so a big plus there. Where Simplenote still has its edge is in the ability to go back to prior versions of one’s notes. This has saved me on more than one occasion and it serves as an undo function. Maybe that exists in Agenda but I haven’t found it. I also don’t mind the lack of including pics as that in my opinion detracts from the simplicity and seems ripe for requirements creep that could bog down the app. In my experience Agenda is generally slower than Simplenote so I would focus on keeping the app efficient and reliable (I’ve experienced one crash during the first hour of use). All in all, Agenda is on a good track!
stop saying non-trivial
by Shotokanfire on 2019/08/31 02:48
Every time I look at the list of feedback that seems to build up very quickly, I see a ton of complaints from the developers of this app about how non-trivial it is to ask for....anything. A constant excuse based on how few employees they have, even though they charge you for a year of meh updates. seems to be snarky or passive aggressive suggestions to valid frustrations, and the troubleshooting is painful. They seem really tired of people (as is evident by the snarky response to my review) Ya’ll. Is 2019. I’m seriously tempted to build a fixed model and just use that. Plus then I could at least be trusted with my own color theme choices.
A quick note to the devs
by Hrjhdcmjexvfaf on 2018/08/01 15:27
I love what your team is trying to do and applaud your efforts. I do want to make a note that the app doesn’t give a great first impression. The intro splash screen is not necessary for a note-taking app. Past the intro screen, the animations when starting a new project and generally tapping any buttons are somewhat slow and feel unresponsive. I would like a snappier feel as note-taking, especially on a phone, usually needs to be done quickly. I do like the fact that you provide a tutorial and include the option to skip it. Best of luck guys!
Agenda was built for business owners with TONS of notes
by monkeysoncrunk on 2019/08/01 15:59
I came from Bear app. I was a power user. Sorting notes by hashtags seemed great. Until I had collected over 1000 notes in 2 years. Until I needed a structured process for not just taking notes, but thinking forward. Have you ever had that one idea, which you quickly noted... but never followed through on? Here’s probably what happened - that note got buried. Never to be seen again. Agenda changes that. Create an idea, set a FUTURE date. It’ll show up on your date based “newsfeed”, aka Agenda. P.s. I LOVE the payment model. Pay once and you OWN the app + and get free updates for a year. A year later, YOU choose if you want another years worth of updates. This is a beautiful model compared to making users “rent” apps that rarely get any updates. Keep it up Agenda team, you 💯!
The Best Organization Tool
by Nineset on 2019/11/05 01:07
Agenda really has gotten so many things right. Combine with my iPad I can keep up with my daily tasks for home and work, so easily. It’s great that I can move between calendars and assign tasks by accounts. Works better than OneNote for meeting minutes. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I hope to see some web interface some day but with the current iPad and iPhone setup I don’t feel that it is missing.
Good but needs work
by Merf merf merf on 2019/05/22 14:30
It’s a very powerful app but the formatting UX is really quirky and kind of frustrating to use. Bullet points delete when they shouldn’t, context menus close unexpectedly, the indicators for the slide out menus are hard to see. It feels like the devs don’t actually use their app sometimes. Also as a side note, your request for review popped up for me while I was in the middle of typing a note, closed the keyboard and made me lose my train of thought. Rating requests should happen when the user is at a natural stopping point, not in the middle of trying to use your app.
Need the ability to sync WITHOUT using iCloud
by lanwarrior on 2019/02/05 02:51
This app is excellent for managing projects and taking notes at work. Unfortunately, the app can only sync data using your personal iCloud account. While it may work for personal usage, it doesn’t work well with those who use it at work because many companies block personal iCloud account and iCloud Drive on company’s laptop and iOS devices. Given what this app can do, I suspect many people will want to use this at work. Hopefully Agenda will have its own sync solution, similar to Things and MoneyWiz. I’d gladly pay for a subscription to offset the infrastructure cost use to host the syncing servers.
Just one more thing...
by IAmLight2029 on 2019/01/09 20:52
This is a nice note taking app. It’s sort bare bones in terms of ways you can organize the text, but that’s fine it makes things simpler for me. But one feature (at least in the Mac version) I would like to have would be to be able to write text next to an image, not just underneath the image. Something similar to wrap text. So I’m able write notes about the image itself, separately from the rest of the notes. That’s the one thing I would add to this already solid app.
Still Not for me
by Quark Gluon Plasma on 2019/10/31 02:42
Updated: It appears that Agenda puts a link into the notes field in iOS 13 Reminders, and the link doesn’t work from there. You have to manually move the link to the URL. Drag & drop doesn’t work. Agenda is ok out, but in is a disaster. I don’t want to cut & paste through my inbox. Updated: I tried this again and found the interface very fussy and disorganized. Just not good enough for anything useful. The lack of share sheets to get information into the app is at this point just an embarrassment for the developers. Original: I started to explore the iOS version and thought I had found something I liked. However, Agenda lacks the modern conveniences for getting content in via share sheets. The developer says they are coming. I attempted to use the app to organize the logistics of a big trip. The attempt was not successful. The organization by date is not useful for me, and I ended up using a Markdown-based notes app instead. This was easier and more flexible for me. Worth trying, but I won’t pursue it further.
Needs photo/images and slightly faster workflow
by Anon grumps on 2018/06/05 21:51
The lack of image support makes it hard to quickly take a shot of a whiteboard during a meeting and connect it to an agenda event. It would be good to have both image import and camera access as well as some rudimentary note taking feature on an image. It would also be an improvement to make the notes not need a header. Mostly you just want to get typing, not have to fill out additional stuff, or decide where to type. The fewer decisions you make when taking notes the better.
Finally a Digital BuJo that Works!
by SDB52 on 2018/11/24 08:26
I was an enthusiast Pen & Paper Bullet Journal, but that was in one place only. I gave it a try to bring it online & synced with Agenda, and it is fantastic. It syncs on all my devices, it is always with me, I can enter a note, appointment, to do on the spot. I can easily find past events, expenses, todos/done. Everything is there neat and organized. I can’t wait for the possibility of inserting tables from numbers, PDFs, and images. I hope they will keep up the great work.
One little bug...
by OliveAce on 2018/08/28 23:20
Love this app! It really takes away the stress of organizing. Unfortunately, there is a little bug where the title overlaps with other titles. Not sure how else to explain it. It will say something like “Untitled” or “sample project” all on top of whatever I labeled the project myself. It does the same thing when I view the sample projects that were already on there (the Welcome project and such.). Honestly, there are so many words layered on top of one another I’m not 100% sure what it says. Other than that, works great!
UNDO
by Aerographer on 2018/07/08 01:18
Love the app, use it all the time. What this app really needs is an undo button. The other day I had a long list of stuff typed in, then I high-lighted it so I could change the font and accidentally fat thumbed the back space arrow deleting the whole thing. Needless to say I was pretty upset when I could not find a way to recover that lost info and nearly discontinued the use of the app. I am going to continue to use the app but if I lose important notes again that will probably seal the deal for me.
Works on all my devices
by Pykachu10 on 2019/04/29 15:51
The app itself is very clean and intuitive, I like the breakdown of categories -> projects -> notes. The 2 most amazing features are: 1) there doesn’t seem to be a device limit, I have 2 macs and an iPad and iPhone I use regularly and I installed Agenda on all devices and it works great. Other apps like Evernote have a 2 device limit, making them almost unusable for me. 2) NO REGISTRATION! I repeat, you open the app, write something, then download and open the app on another device and they are in sync. It must be using Apple’s iCloud or something but I don’t have to create an account, it just automatically knows who you are wherever you install the device. Pretty convenient! EDIT: deleted this app, it’s sporadic whether my changes will sync to my other devices which makes this unusable for me. Leaving 3 stars because it’s still a nice app if you only have 1 device.
A very good beginning...
by david.brown on 2018/11/30 04:14
I have several note taking apps but Agenda’s date focusing sets it apart. I also like the project and category grouping. The free syncing is great! Wish list: • I’ve had issues sending documents as PDF on my iPad Pro (it worked once but not again). • Support for the Apple Pencil. • I’d like to be able to reorganize thoughts by moving them with handles. • Bullets in outlines are missing. • Nested outlines have the same dash character and nested numeric outlines only use numbers — there should be some variation for different levels. • It would be nice if nested checkbox outlines would automatically check the parent when the children were all completed (checked). Conversely, if the parent is checked, the children should be checked. • In-line images and attachments. • Font selection. • Would it be possible to tie notes to locations?
Exactly what I was looking for
by darinz4 on 2018/06/08 10:46
For ages now I’ve been looking for an app that I could tie each note to a calendar appointment. So many of my appointments are with the same customers throughout my weekly and monthly schedules. Determining what we discussed in which appointment is no longer a struggle with Agenda. I seriously can’t say enough about this product and the way it’s changed my daily workflow. Can’t wait for inline image inserting ability!
Great, with some minor annoyance.
by peizuan on 2018/11/14 18:52
I love it so far, especially how it allows one to organize notes by dates and groupings simultaneously. One little annoyance I face is the difficulty to touch the checklist to check or uncheck items. Most of the time it goes into editing the item instead of checking the circle. I never has this problem the checklist in the iOS stock Note app. I think the UI team can fix this rather easily and I am eagerly waiting for an update that address this issue.
Fantastic but one thing missing...
by ForcedLightning on 2018/06/07 16:22
Hey Developers of Agenda! You guys hit the nail on the head with this note taking app, it’s completely perfect, like the best between Evernote and Calendar. The integration with calendar and the simplicity and power of it is just genius. But could you add a widget to be available in the Today view on iPhone to show the Agenda? Also add notifications for upcoming tasks. That would make everything perfect! Keep up the great work!
Love this app, but
by SSmith-2019 on 2019/03/16 10:47
As noted, I love this app and very glad to pay the coin for the app. I would however wish it had a Apple Watch version to go along with it. I love the ability to seamlessly use my work flow across both my iPhone and my Apple Watch and adding the Agenda app would be one of, if not the best uses for that. Hope it makes this the fact in future updates. Thanks to the developer for the awesome work so far. Best $ spent IMO
Premium is worth it
by Gerard McLean on 2018/09/18 18:02
I use agenda as a CRM Lite... the ability to attach items to my calendar keeps things organized and files as they happen. Once the initial upgrade snafu bug worked itself out, things flowed nicely. The Community thing is a bit overwhelming, though. I suppose it was useful when it was new, but there is so much there now that it is clutter. I would prefer an edited, curated library instead.
An almost dream come true for certain teachers
by Jerm@ine on 2019/02/12 11:49
3.5 stars is what I really wanna give. The app is a teachers dream for lesson plans. There is one huge feature that is missing though, so huge I choose not to use the app exclusively, despite how good this app is...and that is handwriting with the Apple Pencil. I guess I’m a part of this weird group of teachers who use their Apple Pencil for writing lesson plans, but also desire to use their keyboard as well. If they add that this would be my number one go to app.
Underwhelmed for the Price
by iMonkglen on 2018/11/26 06:16
No insertion of pictures? I know I must be mistaken but I have to say that after using this app for a couple weeks, I am underwhelmed to say the least. I hate saying negative things about apps, but this app is a grave disappointment to me, and in the light of so many positive reviews I post this not to show my ability to criticize, but my inadequacy in 1) I JUST CANNOT SEE HOW THIS HELPS ANYTHING, and 2) NO PICTURES? I must be wrong. I hope I’m wrong and I’ll amend this review if I’m proven wrong, and I hope I am. I would caution anyone who thinks this will be easy to use to reconsider that it is for some people, but not me.

Description
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 you're a business manager noting decisions in a meeting, a teacher planning next week’s lessons, or a blogger brainstorming a post, Agenda is ideal for tracking the evolution of your notes. It's the only note taking app with a strong emphasis on the passage of time, making it the perfect fit for any project. Use it for personal projects like jotting down recipes you’d like to try, or take on major projects at work, planning your next meeting or checking off your daily tasks. The notes in Agenda are beautifully styled, and include powerful features like images, file attachments, tags, lists, and links. You can even connect your notes to events in your calendar, and add due reminders to your tasks. Locating your notes also couldn't be easier, with powerful search, a project jump bar, and related notes list. And when you find what you're looking for, simply go back in the history to where you were. TAKE NOTES. DATE NOTES. Agenda’s unique timeline approach to organizing notes gives your projects momentum. While other apps focus specifically on the past, present, or future, Agenda is the only notes app that keeps track of each in a single timeline. Add notes for what is currently on your agenda, while you prepare other notes for an upcoming meeting. Use older notes as breadcrumbs to remind yourself why you took the actions you did. WHAT'S ON THE AGENDA? You can attach dates to individual notes, and even link them to events in your calendar. But you can also put them “On the Agenda”. Notes that are On the Agenda are given special status. They get added to a special overview in the sidebar so you can find them in a flash. THE 'MEANING FULL' TEXT EDITOR Agenda is a styled-text editor. Styled text is as easy to edit as plain text, but leads to visually stunning documents without breaking a sweat. Styles include headings, lists, indented blocks, and preformatted text. You focus on the meaning of your notes, and leave Agenda to handle the appearance.  The resulting documents look fantastic, and can be converted to other formats like Markdown and HTML. NOTE-ALLY ORGANIZED Group your projects into categories to make them easier to find, and order the notes for each project however you choose. You can drag them around, apply dates, or use a mixed approach. You can also collapse notes to save space. TAKING IT TO TASK Do you sometimes find yourself using your task manager for more than it is intended? Agenda is a notes app that has excellent support for tasks. It supports different list styles, including checklists, and allows mixing tasks with more extensive notes. There is also direct integration with the Reminders app, so you can add reminders with a due date to any task. SHARE NOTES AND PROJECTS A notes app is not very useful if you can't share what you create. With Agenda, you can print and share notes, even whole projects, in standard formats like PDF, RTF and Markdown. You can also use the Agenda archive format to exchange exact duplicates of your notes with other Agenda users, including any attached files. MANY DEVICES, ONE AGENDA Nobody wants data silo-ed on one device, so Agenda has apps for Mac, iPad, and iPhone, and they sync up via your iCloud or Dropbox account. PURCHASING AGENDA Agenda is free, with no time limits. You can use it forever, at no cost. Agenda does offer extra premium features that require an In App Purchase. If you decide to purchase an upgrade, you permanently unlock all current features across all of your eligible devices. Even better, any features we add in the 12 months following your purchase are included, and permanently unlocked as well. All yours to keep.
I’m little bit confused about ...
by evfffff on 2019/12/08 11:18
no doubts it is an excellent app! I paid full version right away after trial run. The subscription was little bit confusing, as my understanding I paid 25$ for just 1year premium features? So after 1year I still can use the premium feature , but not the features comes out after that, right? On the other hand I really hope these 2 features: - insert excel sheet - changeable app icon and more themes keep it up , agenda folks.
Lacks Major Features
by michaellporter on 2019/12/03 13:07
The app lacks the ability to embed links. You can't duplicate notes and you can't sort notes into order. By default new notes jump to the top of the screen and have to be manually dragged into order.
Hard to fathom, but great
by Jdb9 on 2019/11/26 23:09
You’ll stumble and swear but stick with it. I only wish it had a “mail to Agenda” feature like Things has. Then you could live completely in Agenda’s warm embrace. I also miss Things’s “Upcoming” list of tasks.
Please support korean..too many bugs.
by HJBent on 2019/11/26 03:20
Hello I love this app It is very nice app so i purchased premium service. i am korean so usually write korean in this app but it has some bugs to write korean 1. The last words dissappear after I hit the enter. 2. The hashtag cannot be used normally. 3. list system (- / 1.2.3... / o) is not working properly. and so on. Please support Korean seriously. I want to keep using this app. Thank you very much. p.s ) Do you have any idea of changing the app icon? It seems too unprofessional & drawing application...I think...
No multi-window support
by NSoto2011 on 2019/11/15 02:38
If they added support for this new iOS 13 feature I’d pay for premium. IMO it’s a must-have for an app like this.

Excellent application
Overly Complicate
by IDK man just let me comment on 2019/11/08 19:29
I don’t often use an Agenda app, but when I do, I expect to understand something to the timeline. It’s the most confusing, « modern » scheduling app.
Excellent App
by ChicagoCAM on 2019/11/06 22:14
Agenda is an outstanding App that I use all the time to organize client activity in my law practice as well as personal and family matters. Works beautifully and seamlessly with all devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone). Flexible for use by anybody. Tremendous support from the developers and the user community. Do yourself a favor and give it a chance to organize your life.
The Best Organization Tool
by Nineset on 2019/11/05 01:07
Agenda really has gotten so many things right. Combine with my iPad I can keep up with my daily tasks for home and work, so easily. It’s great that I can move between calendars and assign tasks by accounts. Works better than OneNote for meeting minutes. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I hope to see some web interface some day but with the current iPad and iPhone setup I don’t feel that it is missing.
Constant crashing for blind users
by WebGuy9402 on 2019/11/04 04:18
I am blind and use VoiceOver to navigate apps. The developers of this app have not accounted for the needs of user with disabilities. The opening movie is completely useless (except for some nice music) for blind users, and most of the icons used throughout the app are unlabeled. Furthermore, the app relies on gestures, rather than UI controls, so VoiceOver users cannot even reach many of the features, which are located in side panels (gestures fir which conflict with VoiceOver). This app has such potential, and I would really like to use it. For that to happen, though, the developers need to make significant changes.
Still Not for me
by Quark Gluon Plasma on 2019/10/31 02:42
Updated: It appears that Agenda puts a link into the notes field in iOS 13 Reminders, and the link doesn’t work from there. You have to manually move the link to the URL. Drag & drop doesn’t work. Agenda is ok out, but in is a disaster. I don’t want to cut & paste through my inbox. Updated: I tried this again and found the interface very fussy and disorganized. Just not good enough for anything useful. The lack of share sheets to get information into the app is at this point just an embarrassment for the developers. Original: I started to explore the iOS version and thought I had found something I liked. However, Agenda lacks the modern conveniences for getting content in via share sheets. The developer says they are coming. I attempted to use the app to organize the logistics of a big trip. The attempt was not successful. The organization by date is not useful for me, and I ended up using a Markdown-based notes app instead. This was easier and more flexible for me. Worth trying, but I won’t pursue it further.
Almost a 5 star app
by $ymbi0t3 on 2019/10/29 17:08
This app is missing two things. A widget and a watch app. Other than this it’s perfect and it completely changed the way I organize my day to day. I’m a computer science student and I work so I stay super busy and this app actually keeps me ahead of everything.
Notes not linking to calendar events
by BennieMac on 2019/10/28 09:10
Notes are not linking to calendar events.. PLEASE FIX
Agenda crazy awesome
by joshhus on 2019/10/27 18:25
Easy to use and set up!! Love it. Worth it
Not worth it at all
by reeeeeenie_2018 on 2019/10/19 13:16
I paid the $9.99 thinking extra features would make this more useful than Apple calendars and notes. But it is not. I am now out $9.99 as they won’t issue me a refund even though I have deleted the app and have absolutely no use for it. Apple calendars is easier to manage and all it does is just sync over the calendar. It’s just absolutely not even worth a penny. Just use notes and Apple calendar and skip this app, even the free version isn’t worth all the fuss. I don’t mind spending money on apps if they’re useful. This, not so much.
Great, but loads SLOOOOOWLY in iOS13
by Wiryan on 2019/10/16 07:21
I love everything about this app. Maybe a more word-processor like function rather than the current html-like(?) text editor would be great? So that we can mix font weight in the same line etc? Edit: the app took A MINUTE for my iPad Pro 10.5 and iPhone XR to load after iOS 13. Fix pleaaase?
A most needed 5 star application
by loureedtunes on 2019/10/10 03:39
Notes are great but finding them before you forget about them is a disaster. Agenda fills the gap. There are so many features and benefits to Agenda you MUST install it to find out for the yourself. Seek and ye shall find. Great tool for my use. I purchased it immediately. Thanks J
Really great app but...
by Anezzy on 2019/09/28 04:37
The app is great and it really works well for what I need it for but it keeps crashing and it’s making it hard to use now so can you please fix it thanks
Excellent App
by daccsed on 2019/09/26 09:46
This app is excellent for note taking! The customer support team was superb at resolving my issue and did it very promptly! Great product and customer support.
Buggy after the new update
by bluiflip on 2019/09/25 01:30
Scrolling jitter is a thing in this new version, making it almost unusable on my iphone X.
sugesstion
by 和很多很多很方便 on 2019/09/23 16:53
i have a suggestion,TODAY in the Overview tab should show more days' plans , such as : a week's plan
Tried a bunch, this is the best yet
by ejward13 on 2019/09/20 01:37
I have tried a bunch of different note taking apps and had mixed success with most. Agenda finds the right balance of being really simple to use but still offering good features. Easy to keep organized if you like to plan it out or to move notes or projects around if you want after the fact. I don’t use linking to events at all but I like using the reminders for action items after meetings. On the Agenda is great for meeting preparation: make your notes ahead of time, assign it to the right date and it’s there when you need it. Excellent works folks, keep it up!
stop saying non-trivial
by Shotokanfire on 2019/08/31 02:48
Every time I look at the list of feedback that seems to build up very quickly, I see a ton of complaints from the developers of this app about how non-trivial it is to ask for....anything. A constant excuse based on how few employees they have, even though they charge you for a year of meh updates. seems to be snarky or passive aggressive suggestions to valid frustrations, and the troubleshooting is painful. They seem really tired of people (as is evident by the snarky response to my review) Ya’ll. Is 2019. I’m seriously tempted to build a fixed model and just use that. Plus then I could at least be trusted with my own color theme choices.
Love the app and tech support
by elliott08 on 2019/08/21 09:22
I truly enjoy this app really has help to get things done , I also love the transparency from the developers. Wish more developers were like this .

One of the most comprehensive productivity tools I’ve come across
by Woof12345 on 2019/08/12 17:35
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!
Agenda was built for business owners with TONS of notes
by monkeysoncrunk on 2019/08/01 15:59
I came from Bear app. I was a power user. Sorting notes by hashtags seemed great. Until I had collected over 1000 notes in 2 years. Until I needed a structured process for not just taking notes, but thinking forward. Have you ever had that one idea, which you quickly noted... but never followed through on? Here’s probably what happened - that note got buried. Never to be seen again. Agenda changes that. Create an idea, set a FUTURE date. It’ll show up on your date based “newsfeed”, aka Agenda. P.s. I LOVE the payment model. Pay once and you OWN the app + and get free updates for a year. A year later, YOU choose if you want another years worth of updates. This is a beautiful model compared to making users “rent” apps that rarely get any updates. Keep it up Agenda team, you 💯!
Perfect!
by SwayMi on 2019/07/17 18:10
hooks into iOS data, uses progressive iOS ui features, clean, concise, intuitive
Agenda is an excellent productivity tool
by FJH1960 on 2019/07/16 01:02
After using most of the high-end productivity apps, I have begun to use Agenda. The only additional capability I recommend for this excellent app is to add the ability to use the Apple Pencil. F.J.H 07/15/2019
Really Close to Perfect for Productivity
by VegasDei on 2019/07/12 14:31
Just need share sheet to be five stars. It is a huge log jam for my workflow. Keep up the great work guys.
DEVS! Improvement Suggestion
by GabiDu3etGud! on 2019/07/12 07:34
Hi, I just got this app and already love it. There is only one thing this app needs to outdo everyone. For some time, Dropbox released a mac and phone application called Mailbox, which was FANTASTIC!!!!!! The best feature about it was that it operated liked Agenda but also persuaded users to archive mail that was no longer needed. You can try to disguise other mail platforms this way to mimic David Allen’s, “GTD”, but they’re just not the same. Mailbox failed and they shut it down. If you guys could release a free feature email system that is safe and helps me stay organized with all of the features you already have, I and probably the rest of the world will be your customers for life. - Gabe
Favorite notes app and I’ve tried them all
by Kraudel on 2019/07/10 13:37
I rarely take the time to review apps but this one is well worth it. Great design/UI, love the calendar and reminders integrations, and linking notes to each other. I gladly paid for premium and they continue to add great features with a strong roadmap coming. One thing that would make it even better: integration to Asana.
Drawing please!!!!
by JinanGeGe on 2019/07/10 00:39
Add support for drawing with Apple Pencil please!!!! As a perfectionist, I cannot accept that such a good and beautiful app to be imperfect!
Great!
by Ghostsem on 2019/07/07 13:14
This app is awesome. It’s EXACTLY the kind of app I need— a notes app synced with my calendar and reminders, with capabilities to add images, links, and even tags within the note. That being said, it would be really nice if this were available for Chromebooks and Windows. I don’t have a Mac, and I’m probably not taking notes on my phone in class or a professional meeting. That extra feature— along with the ability to sync all those notes— would make this app pretty much perfect. I would be willing to pay to have universal device syncing. All in all, this app is an amazing versatile tool that anyone could use, and I highly recommend it.
No way to add photos on iPhone
by Okbutwhynotbetter on 2019/07/05 17:31
I’ve read and complied with all forum and dev instructions. “Press curser in note and use arrows to navigate black menu to add photo or camera”. It’s not there! Uninstalled reinstalled. Pressed as said but still no add photo period. Why go thru this? I’m about to delete and ask for refund. For $10 it should work correctly Many others have same problem. Mac might work right but they’re not getting any more money from me until this is corrected
Clear concept, useful from the start, and more to come
by Ricardo J. Salvador on 2019/07/05 12:14
Wow, wow, wow. This app is impressive because: (1) It addresses a universal need of all knowledge workers (planning, organizing, monitoring and documenting tasks and projects within a single environment); (2) It has clearly been well thought out; and (3) It is well-designed by a team that is being disciplined about its concept and execution. The developers describe this app as “date-focused note-taking,” and I’d expand that to say that it is the beginning of a “context-aware journaling app.” The key feature of the app is integration. The developers know that when you write notes about your work they exist in context of a timeline, mileposts, and a set of collaborators, and that you’ll commonly have other “assets” associated with any given task/project (e.g., media, documents, URLs.) Users would typically have to juggle between various apps to “manually” coordinate all these elements of managing work. With Agenda, you can remain within one environment and focus on creating nicely structured projects incorporating dates, reminders and links to other notes within the app as well as to external URLs. This is done through reliable system-level integration with your Calendar and Reminders databases, through a rich set of tags to mark people, dates, priorities and any user-defined attribute that comes to mind (very handy to later search and filter through all your notes), and through the ability to insert photos and attach documents. One of the developers has committed to develop this app for a decade, and one can see the immense possibilities of further extending this “context-aware” paradigm to further integrate what—to date—we’ve been forced to stiffly handle via separate, specialized applications (themselves mostly electronic versions of the antiquated paper/pen/filing cabinet/transom workflows.) The concept is simultaneously ground-breaking as well as “obvious” once you immerse in it (because it is so well suited to the way most of us actually do our work.) This is so shockingly innovative that it is difficult to describe the achievement of delivering something that makes so much sense. A good hour spent with the documentation and teaching examples will be time well spent. As is (without question) the $25 fee for the premium version that integrates across iOS and Mac OS platforms (a quite functional basic function is available at no cost.) To judge from the way the app has launched, this is money very well earned by a sharp team of reflective developers from whom I’m expecting much more (that’s not cheerleading or new user infatuation, it is based on examine their list of upcoming features, including Pencil integration—no doubt meaning ability to eventually insert drawings—as well as the ability to use the system Share sheet to accept input directed to specific projects and tasks.)
No share menu??
by Jenderle7 on 2019/07/05 04:13
Great design and decent features but no share menu is mind blowing to me. Still scratching my head....
Great App!

Very satisfied!!
Best note taking app ever exists

This app organized my life. Thank you for making this
Getting better all the time
by Pnoahw on 2019/07/02 03:19
I love them they added reminders connection.
Lots of potential
by NYBombers7 on 2019/06/28 18:18
Seems great, 1 wish is Apple Pencil support. I actually just assumed this would be here already. I’ll be waiting for that to really use it
Pretty great, but usability + readability dealbreakers
by insipidlight on 2019/06/06 22:53
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).
Lots of promise but keeps crashing in multitasking/side-by-side view
by rstrainde on 2019/05/22 18:18
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.
Good but needs work
by Merf merf merf on 2019/05/22 14:30
It’s a very powerful app but the formatting UX is really quirky and kind of frustrating to use. Bullet points delete when they shouldn’t, context menus close unexpectedly, the indicators for the slide out menus are hard to see. It feels like the devs don’t actually use their app sometimes. Also as a side note, your request for review popped up for me while I was in the middle of typing a note, closed the keyboard and made me lose my train of thought. Rating requests should happen when the user is at a natural stopping point, not in the middle of trying to use your app.
Maybe in a year it’ll be ready for iOS
by D9 on 2019/05/19 12:54
Just seeing some of the other posts, plus my own 1-year experience, Agenda is an app with wonderful potential but not currently for the iOS version...maybe in another year. My personal hang up with it (plus many of others’ issues with UI, images, and styling) is the poor-to-none state of iOS Share functionality. If I need to clip webpage content or grab excerpts from an email to add to a note or task, Agenda has no option within Share to accomplish. If I have a PDF reference file to include, no way to use Share. Again, it has good potential and many unique features. A bit of a different workflow paradigm but one that can be easily learned. Yet there is way too much difficulty/work needed for daily usage as a serious iOS note-taking tool. See ya next year, Agenda!
Estupenda ! Justo lo que buscaba
by Tuboka81 on 2019/05/17 22:06
Después de instalar y desinstalar casi todas las aplicaciones de productivos similares a esta , creo que es con la que más he acertado , quería una aplicación minimalista que me permitiese tener mis apuntes importantes sincronizados con mi MacBook, es bastante completa y mejor que muchas ! Puntos a recomendar : la opción de ponerla en español sería genial, y un apartado para Tareas (Tasks) ; quizás también y porque no, un módulo para notas rápidas ! Sería la “Agenda Ideal” ( al menos para mi) !!
Ironic icon as it the app doesn’t support Apple Pencil
by MDAL68130 on 2019/05/08 12:49
The potential for the app is there, but taunting us with Pencil support every time we launch the app is just cruel. I continue to use notability until pencil support is added.
Life changing app
by Isavma on 2019/05/05 01:34
It was difficult to have the app synced between devices. But after I was able to sync, it’s the perfect app. Just waiting for the reminders!
Elegant, frictionless, indispensable
by Liz I on 2019/05/03 17:49
Started a new project in Agenda today and was moved by my gratitude to write a review. Agenda helps me track, develop and manage my teaching, my taxes, my studio projects and everything else. It’s uncluttered, nimble and a joy to use. It’s now replaced other, more limited note-taking and to-do apps.
Version 5.4 Crashes on my XR
by fasmith on 2019/05/02 20:49
[[[ Updated Info: It looks like calendar integration is causing the crashes. I was able to get the app to start by turning off calendar integration. Error report sent. Re-Linking the calendar after opening Agenda causes the app to crash—again, just from foreground activity. I can still see the active app in the app switcher. ]]] I 💚Agenda, but the one of the recent updates has rendered it unusable on my iOS device—XR. The app loads to a black screen in landscape orientation, flashes and then backgrounds itself. I can see the actual app in the app switcher preview, but i can’t ever bring it forward to use it. (Note: I’ve tried all standard approaches to fixing the problem—including restarting the app, restarting the phone (with app closed), reinstalling the app. Agenda heros, help!
No spellcheck?
by Eirura on 2019/05/01 12:54
That kinda bothers me. Usually spellcheck is a basic feature in most notes type apps. There is no tag features. I think there might be but it is such a complicated way to do so. What I do like this app is that I can have a project and bombarded it with notes and add reminders to it. There is a category feature which is useful but since there is no tags, or subcategories, it isn’t as helpful. I might go back to Bear and set a reminder on my notes separately.
Works on all my devices
by Pykachu10 on 2019/04/29 15:51
The app itself is very clean and intuitive, I like the breakdown of categories -> projects -> notes. The 2 most amazing features are: 1) there doesn’t seem to be a device limit, I have 2 macs and an iPad and iPhone I use regularly and I installed Agenda on all devices and it works great. Other apps like Evernote have a 2 device limit, making them almost unusable for me. 2) NO REGISTRATION! I repeat, you open the app, write something, then download and open the app on another device and they are in sync. It must be using Apple’s iCloud or something but I don’t have to create an account, it just automatically knows who you are wherever you install the device. Pretty convenient! EDIT: deleted this app, it’s sporadic whether my changes will sync to my other devices which makes this unusable for me. Leaving 3 stars because it’s still a nice app if you only have 1 device.
Warming up to it, needs some improvements
by Matt Agnello on 2019/04/24 23:13
Agenda’s a weird one. I’ve used a bunch of different notes apps, eventually landed on Apple Notes as a simple place for my digital outboard brain, I use iThoughtsX for brainstorming, and I already use Day One as a journal, but Agenda’s aesthetic and novel date-focused design intrigued me. I found the Category/Project very intuitive to use, very similar to other notes apps. I love using Markdown, and Agenda does a good job of being a WYSIWYG Markdown text editor. I struggled to work the dates part into my workflow, though. I occasionally have meetings where I need to capture notes, but not often. I mostly work on creative projects where I’m capturing information about a topic. I kept *thinking* about Agenda, though, so I kept pulling it up and experimenting with it for a while, and I’ve started to understand how to use On the Agenda, dates, and attaching to events to help make sure I see the relevant information when I need to more easily than other notes apps. The thing that keeps killing it for me, despite enjoying it, is how difficult it is to get things *into* Agenda that don’t involve typing into it. I’m used to pulling up an Apple Note, hitting +, taking a picture of a whiteboard, and having it attached to that note forever. Or using the share sheet on a website to drop a URL into a note for that topic. Agenda doesn’t work quite like that. Attachments are buried in a cog menu attached to the note, which is not nearly seamless enough for me on mobile. Drag and drop works great on Mac, though. I think Agenda has potential, hoping one day it has the features that will enable it to work with my workflow better.
Nice but needs more REAL PREMIUM features
by Edward the Human on 2019/04/24 11:39
Liked the app and bought the premium features albeit too basic to be premium features like ability to change accent colors or enable line spacing. There are a few must have features that are missing but I’ll name just a couple on top of my head: 1. Better subcategory implementation 2. Collaborations with others. But all-in-all, it is a very nice looking app and serves its purpose for basic usage. The premium costs 12.99 and you’ll get all upcoming features for the next 12 months. I hope the developers will not hold off many features just to stretch them out through a 12-month period. I’m sure they won’t do that! Just keep ‘em new features coming!
Doesn’t link to any of Apple or iOSs data sources
by TheoTheSilly on 2019/04/23 13:41
The idea behind this app is brilliant but the developers have decided not to integrate with any of Apples own data sources like calendar, contacts, tasks, or notes. They have tried to build their own brand into the icons, experience, and design, but that forces you to use a tutorial. The tutorial then steps you through the developers extremely opinionated ideas on how the app is used. This sort of on-boarding is frustrating. My data from my own calendars, tasks, and notes is missing. My normal approach on UX, modeled and built on 12 years of using iOS, is ignored. Then the app asks me for $9.99, which I will gladly give: I own +$10,000 of Apple gear. I use it all to do my job and provide for my family. $9.99 a year is nothing. But I am not going to hand it over when I don’t see my data preloaded and the developer is so opinionated on the UX.
It’s ok.
by Eriptron on 2019/04/23 05:17
But really nothing to write home about. So it’s an integrated note taking, task manager app that ‘can’ link to your calendar (for $10). The notes writer is fairly basic. I prefer Notes Writer Pro. The multiple device iCloud syncing of multiple Agenda apps doesn’t work. All devices are logged in with the same Apple ID. Nothing. Zip. Nada.
No ability to share to or from the app
by carlvjack on 2019/04/22 21:38
the lack of the ability to send to or receive from Agenda makes it difficult to integrate into my workflow. If you have a Mac which I don’t you can import but if you are only on iPad or iPhone your notes are pretty isolated.
an amazing planner!
by Leila O. on 2019/04/20 13:19
i use this app as a student and it works wonderfully. i especially value the syncing feature between my ipad and iphone. the flow of the app works well and the design is very pleasing. the support team responded very quickly to the issue i had. thank you!
The app I've been looking for!
by PenguinFred on 2019/04/14 15:16
It combines note taking, bullet lists, todo lists, calendar events, and images, and organizes meeting notes by date. Wow! This has greatly streamlined my meeting notes workflow. Thank you for an awesome app ;-)
Fantastic UI, little buggy
by TheGreatKev on 2019/04/14 14:14
Agenda is incredible to look at, across all devices. It opens quickly, has good dark and light themes, and I love the way it organizes notes by project and date. It's quickly replaced my Reminder, Notes, and Calendar app. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the minor bugs. I started a new note once and it linked the first sentence to a completely unrelated URL that I had put in a previous note. More than a few times the UI has glitched between half dark/half light theme. And every time I take something "off the Agenda" before I've typed in the body of the note it clears the title and I have to rename it. Overall, still very happy with the product, especially for something free!
Great app.. but
by Badadu on 2019/04/13 14:46
I am an Apple person.. but I prefer working on a PC other than a Mac.. So.. I would give a 5 star if my notes could be synced on a pc as well soon. Wishful thinking ?? A

No way to recover deleted notes
by onecomplaint on 2019/04/02 23:34
This app is amazing EXCEPT there’s no way to recover recently deleted notes. Without the ability to recover files, anything deleted is literally gone for good, something I didn’t realize until after I purchased the premium pack. Without this simple thing, the app really loses its appeal and it’s reliability in storing information. It’s so sad considering how many amazing features it does include :/ But the inability to recover lost files is simply irredeemable
A must have for new managers
by Mufasa804 on 2019/03/30 12:48
I recently got promoted and needed a way to manage notes, staff, and meetings. Agenda was the answer, the app works great and syncs perfectly between macOS and iOS. I tried OneNote and got frustrated by its performance on macOS, Agenda feels ten times snappier. Thank you!
Great Product
by RoMuzik on 2019/03/22 01:07
Since we live in a multi platform world, there should be Apple Watch support and cross platform to android and possibly Windows. This has the potential to overtake Evernote.
Great app that’s always improving
by Shelunda1234 on 2019/03/21 20:56
Agenda was a very good app when it came out, but now it is a great one. Their particular subscription model and active community have supported continuous improvement. Is it perfect? No, but it’s closer than anything other app I’ve used. It’s my planner, journal, to do list, notebook, and calendar. Can I write a book or research paper with it? No. But who knows? Maybe someday! There are a few apps I subscribe to and they are all good, but Agenda is the only one I don’t think I’ll mind renewing. It’s really that good.
Not sure
by MrClean11 on 2019/03/19 02:13
I was charged twice for the few premium features and I’ve never had a problem like that before.
No access to menu
by wolfishmoon on 2019/03/18 21:57
I downloaded the app and paid for one year of premium access and, I can’t even create a task! I have to copy the sample project into mine and edit on top of that. Not sure where are these features hidden but i can’t format anything other than the font style...
Love this app, but
by SSmith-2019 on 2019/03/16 10:47
As noted, I love this app and very glad to pay the coin for the app. I would however wish it had a Apple Watch version to go along with it. I love the ability to seamlessly use my work flow across both my iPhone and my Apple Watch and adding the Agenda app would be one of, if not the best uses for that. Hope it makes this the fact in future updates. Thanks to the developer for the awesome work so far. Best $ spent IMO
Great idea but it keeps crashing
by Butters48 on 2019/03/09 05:53
I’ve used this in the past but the past few days I’ve used it to plan vacations. It seems the issue mainly occurs when importing photos. It keeps crashing or hanging. It’s a let down since the main reason I wanted to use this was for the ability to add photos. Hopefully the fix this problem. Also, I wish there was a toggle to keep the smaller images opposed to insert the full size photo when subscribing to the app.
HELP... RECEIVED!!
by Chgo129366 on 2019/03/04 00:15
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 idea, frustrating implementation
by scottaw66 on 2019/03/03 19:18
I really wanted to like this app, but I can’t. I’m replacing it with a new Drafts 5 Workspace. Why? Drafts is an automation powerhouse. Agenda is close, but no cigar. The x-callback-url and Shortcut action support falls just short of what I need. Integration with to-do apps is frustratingly insufficient. Finally, the UI is REALLY annoying with note selection and I hate how the projects are just a sidebar and you can’t just show a master project list screen. Tags are there, but good luck. There’s not tag autocomplete and the way you have to enter them is a pain. Best app icon, best concept, poor implementation except for people who don’t want or don’t go deep with automation and cross-app integration and data sharing.
Allows me to be creative and productive simultaneously
by lucianolang1 on 2019/03/01 01:08
However, there are still some bugs. Nothing that prevents the use of the app but are still arrrggh, such as: The light alerts blinding me when on dark mode The white view when I move a note to the top of the project
HELP! Can’t login after premium upgrade
by MtnShootr on 2019/02/26 01:25

Daily planner/Bullet Journal
by Blackreignbeauty on 2019/02/24 04:09
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!

How to backup notes?
by Maysam b on 2019/02/14 05:48
How do I backup my notes?
Didn’t like
by BobYourUncle on 2019/02/13 06:08
Tried it. I guess I'm too used to the way Apple Notes organizes my notes. First by Folder, then by a list of my notes in a list view. Once I imported everything into Agenda, it was just one hot mess of a long page. Couldn't deal with it, so I deleted everything.
Can’t use until pencil is supported
by jeffruth on 2019/02/12 17:45
I’ll just keep waiting I suppose. I want to use this app so bad, but a HUGE feature appears to be missing. Please add Pencil support!
Not ready for prime time
by PeterAnthony on 2019/02/12 15:16
I initially loved this app. The promise of categories AND tags, dark mode, tying into my calendar etc. made it seem like the second coming of notes apps, but it is not for those who already have hundreds of notes, many of which are long i.e. require some scrolling to get to the bottom. The search in Agenda is not comparable to Simplenote or even the Apple notes app. Simplenote gives results almost instantaneously, while Agenda takes seconds to bring up results which often for me did not seem right, as I knew the results existed, but often the search results did not come up. This sometimes had to do with what was selected before you began searching e.g. selecting “search all” but this was not a seamless or quick execution as it is on Simplenote which I am returning to. Also, and this I could not put up with any longer, the search results are not abridged so if you have many long notes you have to scroll through not only a score of results but the full-length of each result. The results are also not integrated into spotlight or iOS so that you can’t use your device to search but must go into the app. You also can’t share to the app. When sharing a clip or a webpage, every other app on your device is listed as an option but not Agenda. The developers say all of these concerns (and I have others) are on their drawing board, but I can’t wait. After a month of using, I realized that this app was killing my productivity. If you are starting from a blank slate then you won’t be bothered so much by my experience, but if you are an intensive notes user and are planning on importing your notes into Agenda (which works well btw), then I advise you to wait. I expect that they’ll iron out these difficulties in a year or two, but I can’t wait. I also realize that I don’t need this to schedule what’s on my agenda. I’m already using a great app called SkedPal for that and this function of Agenda I will never use. So beware. This app is not ready for prime time IF you have already hundreds of notes and need to be able to quickly find them as well as integrate into your workflow of other apps. Can’t be done as of today. Will happen but again I can’t wait. I wish these guys luck, as it is a beautiful app, but I can’t pay to be in beta with my money and my productivity.
An almost dream come true for certain teachers
by Jerm@ine on 2019/02/12 11:49
3.5 stars is what I really wanna give. The app is a teachers dream for lesson plans. There is one huge feature that is missing though, so huge I choose not to use the app exclusively, despite how good this app is...and that is handwriting with the Apple Pencil. I guess I’m a part of this weird group of teachers who use their Apple Pencil for writing lesson plans, but also desire to use their keyboard as well. If they add that this would be my number one go to app.
Not useful.
by jasijohn on 2019/02/08 04:24
I’ve tried to use on I-phone 6s. A waste of time. Cool layout, but a calendar is more efficient. It will let you write notes. They just lay there in the way, refusing to be filed away. You can attach things to things, as if that were of some use. Oh, and can I get back the $9.99 I spent for the “enhanced” version? It lets you earn badges by hanging out online with other users. It says you can create calendar items. Mayhaps you can. I couldn’t. I had to go to my calendar app to create item which then linked to Agenda. Why not just stick with the calendar app?
Love, love, love it!
by Ykanel on 2019/02/07 06:53
I’m very pleased with this app and how I am able to organize notes and due dates. I’m a student and keeping track with homework and exams has always been my issues and this app has showed me an easier way to keep my homework and class notes all together. I’m giving it a four-star rating because I’m unable to use my apple pen while taking notes.
Need the ability to sync WITHOUT using iCloud
by lanwarrior on 2019/02/05 02:51
This app is excellent for managing projects and taking notes at work. Unfortunately, the app can only sync data using your personal iCloud account. While it may work for personal usage, it doesn’t work well with those who use it at work because many companies block personal iCloud account and iCloud Drive on company’s laptop and iOS devices. Given what this app can do, I suspect many people will want to use this at work. Hopefully Agenda will have its own sync solution, similar to Things and MoneyWiz. I’d gladly pay for a subscription to offset the infrastructure cost use to host the syncing servers.
A very useful app
by commodore_k on 2019/02/04 10:27
I am current working on my thesis and use Agenda to log work I have done for the day and keep track of what I still have to do. I use it to record ideas, questions, concerns and processes that I have to be able to replicate and to think through findings. I also use the app to keep track of personal stuff — thoughts, quotes and memories. I love that I can keep these two kinds of notes separate. Tags make it very easy to find something. The developer is quick to fix bugs and the pricing mode is generous. Definitely give this app a try. See if it fits your needs.
still using it
by ds001. on 2019/01/31 23:14
I was looking for a digital #bujo app. I found it in Agenda. Is it the best? I’m not sure. There are a ton of apps in this space and I’m still using it. That to me is the mark of a good app, it delivers on what I need it for so I don’t need go elsewhere. They make regular improvements and their support is really good. For me its a 5/5.
Great app. User interface need to be improved or redesigned.
by SN-KD on 2019/01/30 06:20

Good functionality with terrible performance
by themanchicken on 2019/01/24 11:50
The functionality in this application is marvelous, if you’re willing to wait for it. The performance is so bad that sometimes an “undo” operation, or a new note, takes 30-60 seconds to complete. Throw network problems into the mix and editing individual notes is just impossible. I love the app, but the performance is so bad that I can’t use it. The performance issues have reached the point where the app is unusable, and they don’t seem to be getting addressed. When I try to create a note attached to a meeting, it loads my project list but is super choppy scrolling it, and then somehow loads other notes rather than creating new ones. This seems to affect both mobile and desktop versions. At this point I’m really not using the app anymore. (Last attempted to use, without much success, 2019-01-24)

One fatal flaw keeps it from perfection
by T. Michael Martin on 2019/01/23 14:48
Firstly, although I had a disappointing experience after paying for both the iOS and Mac versions, I love this app. It’s genuinely a life-changer at work. It’s brilliant, useful, and super intuitive. The problem? Currently there is only ONE way to back up your notes and sync across multiple devices: iCloud. And my employer only allows Google syncing. Which means that all my notes from work are effectively stuck on my work laptop, can’t be accessed anywhere else, and will be lost forever if something happens to the app or computer. ☹️ I understand why the developers only support iCloud: The vast majority of customers will be totally okay with using it as their backup avenue. But there are also a lot of business teams who would love to adopt this app, and can’t because they don’t want their employees’ business notes being backed up via their personal iCloud accounts, rather than the company’s Google accounts, or even a proprietary backup from Agenda (much like Things 3, another must-have app, does). I reached out to the devs about supporting Google sync, and they were polite but also fairly dismissive, basically stating “No matter what service we use for syncing/backup, some people won’t be happy. So we’re focusing on improving the app’s features, and maybe one day we’ll look at other sync options.” I soooo want to use this more; I paid $25 to have access to both versions. But until they make the data both safe and more accessible, I can’t completely recommend the purchase.
Beware: subscription. Better products out there you can buy outright.
by ASmart7429 on 2019/01/17 01:25
Similar (or, in my view, superior) products don’t require a ‘subscription’ after initial purchase. The subscribed features don’t warrant the additional cost and leave me feeling that this company doesn’t value its customers enough.
Powerful & Delightful
by jbalance on 2019/01/13 19:09
+ Love the date centered design, it makes this app replace a few of my project planning and note taking apps. + Best iCloud integration that I have experienced with a App. + The Tagging (Subjects & People) is beautifully designed and integrated into the whole system. - Needs a way to add Apple Pencil drawing to notes. - Needs a way to take advantage of iCloud collaboration on a Note. - Needs a way to add an audio recording into a Note. - Needs a way to share
Just one more thing...
by IAmLight2029 on 2019/01/09 20:52
This is a nice note taking app. It’s sort bare bones in terms of ways you can organize the text, but that’s fine it makes things simpler for me. But one feature (at least in the Mac version) I would like to have would be to be able to write text next to an image, not just underneath the image. Something similar to wrap text. So I’m able write notes about the image itself, separately from the rest of the notes. That’s the one thing I would add to this already solid app.
Works like my own mind!
by Ripley2007 on 2019/01/08 21:39
This was so easy to learn. I dumped everything swirling around in my mind into notes and it’s organized like a timeline! Very little effort. I am even make notes for a future date as a “to do”. Such a relief to have it out of my head and stored on my Mac, my iPhone and my iPad. The best anti-anxiety remedy! Instantaneous syncing so I’m good to go from one device to another on the fly. The text styling is wonderful. Make a text note or a checklist, bold or italicized. Love the Calendar sync. I can plan in real time with my other commitments. I bought the full program and don’t regret it at all. Looking forward to future developments.
Brilliant, simple, beautiful, fascinating
by MisterExploder on 2019/01/08 02:04
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.

Just starting out with it but already I’m seeing so many possibilities! What an efficient way to track projects; the sample really comes in handy to see what’s possible with Agenda. Will come back later to review after using awhile. Will no doubt upgrade to support developer. Highly recommend!
A remarkable beginning
by Gprof on 2018/05/31 15:41
This app impressed me more out of the box than anything I have tried in a while. The changes from what loosely similar apps do seem at first incremental but are powerful in a way that opens up very plausible workflows. The key thing is turning a static collection of notes into something that can flow with your calendar - it took me a little while to grasp the intent, but when it clicked and I realized it is not just a notes app replacement I could imagine lots of immediate uses. It is well worth taking the time to find and learn all the features - there is quite a bit hiding under the slick surface (maybe I am slow, but it was the second day before I found the settings button on the right hand slide-in panel) and I already see several reviews complaining about the absence of things that are actually there in the program. You can’t insert images yet but I see from their blog it is likely in the pipeline along with other things, and I happily paid for premium. Thanks to the developers!
Life changing at work
by 600 pieces on 2018/11/25 09:59
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.

Lots of promise but keeps crashing in multitasking/side-by-side view
by rstrainde on 2019/05/22 18:18
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.
Amazing
by joyhawk63 on 2018/06/05 14:04
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!
by mmakkaylla on 2018/06/06 14:43
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!!!
Worth a try

The interface is slick, using gestures intuitively. Slide right for settings and calendar, slide left for notebooks or projects. Get started with a home and work notebook and start adding notes/todo items in there, you’ll soon find yourself with an app worth checking. This is the closest an app has come to simulating the notebook experience on my phone. I’m a freelancer and todo list believer, also an avid note taker. When things don't have specific deadlines, but you need a checklist along side journal entries or notes, much like you would have if you journal, this gives you an Agenda view with things you can be working on, and a today view for things you really should tackle today. Long time productivity app user, first time I felt compelled to write a review and say YES!
One of the most comprehensive productivity tools I’ve come across
by Woof12345 on 2019/08/12 17:35
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!
Pretty great, but usability + readability dealbreakers
by insipidlight on 2019/06/06 22:53
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
by mitya_103 on 2018/05/30 16:17
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
by MisterExploder on 2019/01/08 02:04
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
by Blackreignbeauty on 2019/02/24 04:09
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.
by JXB-00 on 2018/08/20 04:50
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.
Fantastic UI, little buggy
by TheGreatKev on 2019/04/14 14:14
Agenda is incredible to look at, across all devices. It opens quickly, has good dark and light themes, and I love the way it organizes notes by project and date. It's quickly replaced my Reminder, Notes, and Calendar app. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is the minor bugs. I started a new note once and it linked the first sentence to a completely unrelated URL that I had put in a previous note. More than a few times the UI has glitched between half dark/half light theme. And every time I take something "off the Agenda" before I've typed in the body of the note it clears the title and I have to rename it. Overall, still very happy with the product, especially for something free!
Great!
by Ghostsem on 2019/07/07 13:14
This app is awesome. It’s EXACTLY the kind of app I need— a notes app synced with my calendar and reminders, with capabilities to add images, links, and even tags within the note. That being said, it would be really nice if this were available for Chromebooks and Windows. I don’t have a Mac, and I’m probably not taking notes on my phone in class or a professional meeting. That extra feature— along with the ability to sync all those notes— would make this app pretty much perfect. I would be willing to pay to have universal device syncing. All in all, this app is an amazing versatile tool that anyone could use, and I highly recommend it.
Tried a bunch, this is the best yet
by ejward13 on 2019/09/20 01:37
I have tried a bunch of different note taking apps and had mixed success with most. Agenda finds the right balance of being really simple to use but still offering good features. Easy to keep organized if you like to plan it out or to move notes or projects around if you want after the fact. I don’t use linking to events at all but I like using the reminders for action items after meetings. On the Agenda is great for meeting preparation: make your notes ahead of time, assign it to the right date and it’s there when you need it. Excellent works folks, keep it up!
Maybe in a year it’ll be ready for iOS
by D9 on 2019/05/19 12:54
Just seeing some of the other posts, plus my own 1-year experience, Agenda is an app with wonderful potential but not currently for the iOS version...maybe in another year. My personal hang up with it (plus many of others’ issues with UI, images, and styling) is the poor-to-none state of iOS Share functionality. If I need to clip webpage content or grab excerpts from an email to add to a note or task, Agenda has no option within Share to accomplish. If I have a PDF reference file to include, no way to use Share. Again, it has good potential and many unique features. A bit of a different workflow paradigm but one that can be easily learned. Yet there is way too much difficulty/work needed for daily usage as a serious iOS note-taking tool. See ya next year, Agenda!
More and more impressed
by ToddHagler on 2018/08/27 01:41
I have to wonder if the people who are giving bad reviews took enough time to learn to use the app. At first I was not impressed and did not understand the brilliance of Agenda. I even deleted it thinking it had nothing special to offer. After a few days of wondering why it got an Apple award I figured I must have missed something. So I downloaded it again for a second look. I'm so glad I did. The app is really amazing. The features and syncing you get for free will be more than enough for most users. Paying for the upgrade, a one time purchase, will help support ongoing development. Agenda's approach is unique and you'll need to spend a little time with it to see its genius. After initially feeling it had nothing to offer I now have it installed on my mac, iPad, and iPhone. I'm using it for my notes, shopping lists, research notes, and journal. Oh, and yes, for my agenda. I'm looking forward to seeing how it continues to develop. I haven't been this intrigued or felt such promise for an app in a long time.
Perfect for my workflow
by Mr. Trout Snout on 2018/05/31 18:50
I have been using Agenda on my Mac for a few months now, and having an iOS companion app is wonderful. I use it now on my iPad and iPhone. And the ability to link info out of Agenda directly to a calendar appointment is sweeeet! I am not a power user of the app by any means, but I love creating projects with simple checklists that I can then move to calendar tasks with ease. It is exactly what I need to keep track of multiple projects and multiple checklists. I also use it like a simple text editor, often composing information first in Agenda, then transferring it to a document, email, or text. I love the simplicity of this app!
Already some shortcomings and bugs
by GtrInLA on 2018/06/06 07:29
First thing I tried to do was connect an event to my cal for a Reminder but it didn’t see it. So I changed it from a Reminder to some other custom field, then went back to see it found the changed event in my cal. So I figured hmmm, let me try changing it to a Reminder to see if it stays connected and it did. Now when I try connecting reminders it works... fixed the bug on my own but this was the FIRST task I did. Then I noticed you can only link to one event on one day? Well that doesn’t make sense because we can have many meetings on separate days of the year all related to one single event/task. Maybe I misunderstood what this app is? Is there a black mode? Sooo bright and disturbing for my wife. I’ll check back...
Works like my own mind!
by Ripley2007 on 2019/01/08 21:39
This was so easy to learn. I dumped everything swirling around in my mind into notes and it’s organized like a timeline! Very little effort. I am even make notes for a future date as a “to do”. Such a relief to have it out of my head and stored on my Mac, my iPhone and my iPad. The best anti-anxiety remedy! Instantaneous syncing so I’m good to go from one device to another on the fly. The text styling is wonderful. Make a text note or a checklist, bold or italicized. Love the Calendar sync. I can plan in real time with my other commitments. I bought the full program and don’t regret it at all. Looking forward to future developments.
A great app or project and program managers
by P10pablo on 2018/11/14 01:45
This app was a recommendation from a host on Macbreak Weekly. I use Agenda when I’m really trying to focus on some client issues and need to have a repository for referring to things. Agenda has often times shown me when I need to incorporate a company wide means of communicating and I do a lot of prototyping here. As an example I used to create weekly roundup for client and then the most immediate things would go into a master doc and ultimately that master doc went from being an email and is now a shared company document where my team works to deal with the most pressing issues. Agenda helps me to focus.
Exciting!
by Papabear19 on 2018/09/10 19:37
I really love this app. I’d been dreaming of something & I think this is it. iPhone was so basic upon first arrival & Apple has done a wonderful job sticking to simplicity. That said I felt it was time to ratch it up a notch when it comes to productivity as I felt so pulled apart when trying to move from calendar to notes back to calendar then over to reminders. I fell like this work, to bring this tools together while still having independent uses for each, while also trying into built in apps (like adding to calendar) is unprecedented in iOS. This app rocks! Kudos I hope apple buys your framework & just integrates it.
Quality App & Free? I bought it...
by turnWaters on 2018/05/31 01:10
Without thinking because this approach to sales is just so classy! I want to reward this behavior as much as possible! And the APP? It’s perfection and easily worth the upgrade to premium! It is exactly what I’ve been wanting from a notes/tasks/etc. standpoint! Wow! Devs... Congrats on your app release! Wishing you lots of luck and $ 🤣. ONE LAST THING...when you get around to making improvements or adjustments...can you please incorporate the black theme? Please? Now that I’ve experienced iPhoneX’s OLED screen...my eyes have been spoiled! Your app is beautiful but just imagine it in pure black on an iPhoneX? It would be a stunner!! Congrats again! Love it!!!
Unique but needs one feature
by music-major on 2018/08/22 08:32
Agenda is unique among App Store apps. I have been searching for a calendar based note taking application for a while and Agenda is the only one that I have found that comes close. There is a need out there for it and Agenda addresses that need. However one of the features that I and others have been wanting is support for Apple Pencil and handwritten notes. The ability to add handwritten notes would make it so much more useful to me. I like the app but I doubt I will invest any more in it until support for Apple Pencil has been added.
Similar to a things 3 but significantly cheaper
by ourielm on 2018/06/09 19:22
I always found Things 3 to be the best app for getting yourself organized, but could never convince myself to spend the money to have the app on the IPhone, Ipad and Mac (I have it on the phone only). Had they bundled it, I’d probably have fall for it. Enters Agenda, that offers a similar set of features for a fraction of the price, even for free for some more than basic features, and even offers a well thought price structure when purchasing the app for the phone, the iPad and the computer. Well done.
Productivity Enhancement
by TechAdict on 2018/06/14 21:04
I really really want to love Agenda. Coming from an Evernote user, Agenda takes an interesting approach to task, notes, calendar, and history for all these. I sincerely appreciate the workflow and layout. While it’s not entirely intuitive (i.e. formal GTD system), I had no issues picking it up and getting going. That’s probably one of its best features; the ability to work it the way you want. The ONLY reason I deleted the app, is the lack of image support. I imported some notes from the stock notes app, then realized that all the images would not come over. I understand that it’s a focused note/task/history app, and images may interfere with that method. An image is sometimes the quickest and most convenient way to get info down. I can completely see myself coming back and subbing to Agenda in the future if image support is implemented.
Simplenote to Agenda
by GreatVentures on 2018/07/29 16:30
I’ve been an avid Simplenote user for years and as the name implies, it’s power is in its simplicity. Throughout my use I time-stamped every entry because I needed to reference the information both future (I included future items I needed to do by certain dates) and back accordingly. After porting a project into Agenda, time stamping is more natural, so a big plus there. Where Simplenote still has its edge is in the ability to go back to prior versions of one’s notes. This has saved me on more than one occasion and it serves as an undo function. Maybe that exists in Agenda but I haven’t found it. I also don’t mind the lack of including pics as that in my opinion detracts from the simplicity and seems ripe for requirements creep that could bog down the app. In my experience Agenda is generally slower than Simplenote so I would focus on keeping the app efficient and reliable (I’ve experienced one crash during the first hour of use). All in all, Agenda is on a good track!
stop saying non-trivial
by Shotokanfire on 2019/08/31 02:48
Every time I look at the list of feedback that seems to build up very quickly, I see a ton of complaints from the developers of this app about how non-trivial it is to ask for....anything. A constant excuse based on how few employees they have, even though they charge you for a year of meh updates. seems to be snarky or passive aggressive suggestions to valid frustrations, and the troubleshooting is painful. They seem really tired of people (as is evident by the snarky response to my review) Ya’ll. Is 2019. I’m seriously tempted to build a fixed model and just use that. Plus then I could at least be trusted with my own color theme choices.
A quick note to the devs
by Hrjhdcmjexvfaf on 2018/08/01 15:27
I love what your team is trying to do and applaud your efforts. I do want to make a note that the app doesn’t give a great first impression. The intro splash screen is not necessary for a note-taking app. Past the intro screen, the animations when starting a new project and generally tapping any buttons are somewhat slow and feel unresponsive. I would like a snappier feel as note-taking, especially on a phone, usually needs to be done quickly. I do like the fact that you provide a tutorial and include the option to skip it. Best of luck guys!
Agenda was built for business owners with TONS of notes
by monkeysoncrunk on 2019/08/01 15:59
I came from Bear app. I was a power user. Sorting notes by hashtags seemed great. Until I had collected over 1000 notes in 2 years. Until I needed a structured process for not just taking notes, but thinking forward. Have you ever had that one idea, which you quickly noted... but never followed through on? Here’s probably what happened - that note got buried. Never to be seen again. Agenda changes that. Create an idea, set a FUTURE date. It’ll show up on your date based “newsfeed”, aka Agenda. P.s. I LOVE the payment model. Pay once and you OWN the app + and get free updates for a year. A year later, YOU choose if you want another years worth of updates. This is a beautiful model compared to making users “rent” apps that rarely get any updates. Keep it up Agenda team, you 💯!
The Best Organization Tool
by Nineset on 2019/11/05 01:07
Agenda really has gotten so many things right. Combine with my iPad I can keep up with my daily tasks for home and work, so easily. It’s great that I can move between calendars and assign tasks by accounts. Works better than OneNote for meeting minutes. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next. I hope to see some web interface some day but with the current iPad and iPhone setup I don’t feel that it is missing.
Good but needs work
by Merf merf merf on 2019/05/22 14:30
It’s a very powerful app but the formatting UX is really quirky and kind of frustrating to use. Bullet points delete when they shouldn’t, context menus close unexpectedly, the indicators for the slide out menus are hard to see. It feels like the devs don’t actually use their app sometimes. Also as a side note, your request for review popped up for me while I was in the middle of typing a note, closed the keyboard and made me lose my train of thought. Rating requests should happen when the user is at a natural stopping point, not in the middle of trying to use your app.
Need the ability to sync WITHOUT using iCloud
by lanwarrior on 2019/02/05 02:51
This app is excellent for managing projects and taking notes at work. Unfortunately, the app can only sync data using your personal iCloud account. While it may work for personal usage, it doesn’t work well with those who use it at work because many companies block personal iCloud account and iCloud Drive on company’s laptop and iOS devices. Given what this app can do, I suspect many people will want to use this at work. Hopefully Agenda will have its own sync solution, similar to Things and MoneyWiz. I’d gladly pay for a subscription to offset the infrastructure cost use to host the syncing servers.
Just one more thing...
by IAmLight2029 on 2019/01/09 20:52
This is a nice note taking app. It’s sort bare bones in terms of ways you can organize the text, but that’s fine it makes things simpler for me. But one feature (at least in the Mac version) I would like to have would be to be able to write text next to an image, not just underneath the image. Something similar to wrap text. So I’m able write notes about the image itself, separately from the rest of the notes. That’s the one thing I would add to this already solid app.
Still Not for me
by Quark Gluon Plasma on 2019/10/31 02:42
Updated: It appears that Agenda puts a link into the notes field in iOS 13 Reminders, and the link doesn’t work from there. You have to manually move the link to the URL. Drag & drop doesn’t work. Agenda is ok out, but in is a disaster. I don’t want to cut & paste through my inbox. Updated: I tried this again and found the interface very fussy and disorganized. Just not good enough for anything useful. The lack of share sheets to get information into the app is at this point just an embarrassment for the developers. Original: I started to explore the iOS version and thought I had found something I liked. However, Agenda lacks the modern conveniences for getting content in via share sheets. The developer says they are coming. I attempted to use the app to organize the logistics of a big trip. The attempt was not successful. The organization by date is not useful for me, and I ended up using a Markdown-based notes app instead. This was easier and more flexible for me. Worth trying, but I won’t pursue it further.
Needs photo/images and slightly faster workflow
by Anon grumps on 2018/06/05 21:51
The lack of image support makes it hard to quickly take a shot of a whiteboard during a meeting and connect it to an agenda event. It would be good to have both image import and camera access as well as some rudimentary note taking feature on an image. It would also be an improvement to make the notes not need a header. Mostly you just want to get typing, not have to fill out additional stuff, or decide where to type. The fewer decisions you make when taking notes the better.
Finally a Digital BuJo that Works!
by SDB52 on 2018/11/24 08:26
I was an enthusiast Pen & Paper Bullet Journal, but that was in one place only. I gave it a try to bring it online & synced with Agenda, and it is fantastic. It syncs on all my devices, it is always with me, I can enter a note, appointment, to do on the spot. I can easily find past events, expenses, todos/done. Everything is there neat and organized. I can’t wait for the possibility of inserting tables from numbers, PDFs, and images. I hope they will keep up the great work.
One little bug...
by OliveAce on 2018/08/28 23:20
Love this app! It really takes away the stress of organizing. Unfortunately, there is a little bug where the title overlaps with other titles. Not sure how else to explain it. It will say something like “Untitled” or “sample project” all on top of whatever I labeled the project myself. It does the same thing when I view the sample projects that were already on there (the Welcome project and such.). Honestly, there are so many words layered on top of one another I’m not 100% sure what it says. Other than that, works great!
UNDO
by Aerographer on 2018/07/08 01:18
Love the app, use it all the time. What this app really needs is an undo button. The other day I had a long list of stuff typed in, then I high-lighted it so I could change the font and accidentally fat thumbed the back space arrow deleting the whole thing. Needless to say I was pretty upset when I could not find a way to recover that lost info and nearly discontinued the use of the app. I am going to continue to use the app but if I lose important notes again that will probably seal the deal for me.
Works on all my devices
by Pykachu10 on 2019/04/29 15:51
The app itself is very clean and intuitive, I like the breakdown of categories -> projects -> notes. The 2 most amazing features are: 1) there doesn’t seem to be a device limit, I have 2 macs and an iPad and iPhone I use regularly and I installed Agenda on all devices and it works great. Other apps like Evernote have a 2 device limit, making them almost unusable for me. 2) NO REGISTRATION! I repeat, you open the app, write something, then download and open the app on another device and they are in sync. It must be using Apple’s iCloud or something but I don’t have to create an account, it just automatically knows who you are wherever you install the device. Pretty convenient! EDIT: deleted this app, it’s sporadic whether my changes will sync to my other devices which makes this unusable for me. Leaving 3 stars because it’s still a nice app if you only have 1 device.
A very good beginning...
by david.brown on 2018/11/30 04:14
I have several note taking apps but Agenda’s date focusing sets it apart. I also like the project and category grouping. The free syncing is great! Wish list: • I’ve had issues sending documents as PDF on my iPad Pro (it worked once but not again). • Support for the Apple Pencil. • I’d like to be able to reorganize thoughts by moving them with handles. • Bullets in outlines are missing. • Nested outlines have the same dash character and nested numeric outlines only use numbers — there should be some variation for different levels. • It would be nice if nested checkbox outlines would automatically check the parent when the children were all completed (checked). Conversely, if the parent is checked, the children should be checked. • In-line images and attachments. • Font selection. • Would it be possible to tie notes to locations?
Exactly what I was looking for
by darinz4 on 2018/06/08 10:46
For ages now I’ve been looking for an app that I could tie each note to a calendar appointment. So many of my appointments are with the same customers throughout my weekly and monthly schedules. Determining what we discussed in which appointment is no longer a struggle with Agenda. I seriously can’t say enough about this product and the way it’s changed my daily workflow. Can’t wait for inline image inserting ability!
Great, with some minor annoyance.
by peizuan on 2018/11/14 18:52
I love it so far, especially how it allows one to organize notes by dates and groupings simultaneously. One little annoyance I face is the difficulty to touch the checklist to check or uncheck items. Most of the time it goes into editing the item instead of checking the circle. I never has this problem the checklist in the iOS stock Note app. I think the UI team can fix this rather easily and I am eagerly waiting for an update that address this issue.
Fantastic but one thing missing...
by ForcedLightning on 2018/06/07 16:22
Hey Developers of Agenda! You guys hit the nail on the head with this note taking app, it’s completely perfect, like the best between Evernote and Calendar. The integration with calendar and the simplicity and power of it is just genius. But could you add a widget to be available in the Today view on iPhone to show the Agenda? Also add notifications for upcoming tasks. That would make everything perfect! Keep up the great work!
Love this app, but
by SSmith-2019 on 2019/03/16 10:47
As noted, I love this app and very glad to pay the coin for the app. I would however wish it had a Apple Watch version to go along with it. I love the ability to seamlessly use my work flow across both my iPhone and my Apple Watch and adding the Agenda app would be one of, if not the best uses for that. Hope it makes this the fact in future updates. Thanks to the developer for the awesome work so far. Best $ spent IMO
Premium is worth it
by Gerard McLean on 2018/09/18 18:02
I use agenda as a CRM Lite... the ability to attach items to my calendar keeps things organized and files as they happen. Once the initial upgrade snafu bug worked itself out, things flowed nicely. The Community thing is a bit overwhelming, though. I suppose it was useful when it was new, but there is so much there now that it is clutter. I would prefer an edited, curated library instead.
An almost dream come true for certain teachers
by Jerm@ine on 2019/02/12 11:49
3.5 stars is what I really wanna give. The app is a teachers dream for lesson plans. There is one huge feature that is missing though, so huge I choose not to use the app exclusively, despite how good this app is...and that is handwriting with the Apple Pencil. I guess I’m a part of this weird group of teachers who use their Apple Pencil for writing lesson plans, but also desire to use their keyboard as well. If they add that this would be my number one go to app.
Underwhelmed for the Price
by iMonkglen on 2018/11/26 06:16
No insertion of pictures? I know I must be mistaken but I have to say that after using this app for a couple weeks, I am underwhelmed to say the least. I hate saying negative things about apps, but this app is a grave disappointment to me, and in the light of so many positive reviews I post this not to show my ability to criticize, but my inadequacy in 1) I JUST CANNOT SEE HOW THIS HELPS ANYTHING, and 2) NO PICTURES? I must be wrong. I hope I’m wrong and I’ll amend this review if I’m proven wrong, and I hope I am. I would caution anyone who thinks this will be easy to use to reconsider that it is for some people, but not me.
