Introducing Agenda, an elegant new take on notes.

Agenda is a date-focused note taking app for planning and documenting your projects. With its unique timeline, Agenda gives you a complete picture of past, present and future, driving your projects forward.

The notes in Agenda are beautifully styled, and include powerful features like tags, lists, and links. You can even connect your notes to events in your calendar.

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 click back in the history to where you were.


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.


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. You can search for them more easily, and they get added to a special group in the sidebar so you can find them in a flash. Agenda keeps what is most relevant right in front of you.


Agenda is a styled-text editor. Styled text combines the best of plain text and rich text. It is as easy to edit as plain text, but allows meaning to be added, leading 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, are consistently styled, and can be readily converted to other styled text formats like markdown and HTML.


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.


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.

Best of all, your completed tasks don’t get sucked into the archive abyss when you are done with them, but are there for future reference and searching.


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.


Agenda is integrated with iCloud, so your notes are kept in sync across each of your Macs.


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 the upgrade, you permanently unlock all current features across all of your Macs.

Even better, any features we add in the 12 months following your purchase are included, and permanently unlocked as well. All yours to keep.

Maybe someday but probably not

Quark Gluon Plasma

It sounds like a a good idea: an app that assigns notes to projects and makes continuos narratives from them. It looks like Markdown under the hood, but the developer says it isn’t. The yellow-orange color is hard on my eyes, and the font size is too small, but they are not too bad. Figuring out how to work everything is not quite as good as it could be, but not bad either. It’s a decent implementation of a good idea. There are two major problems, though. There’s no ios version, and that’s a complete deal breaker. The developer say an ios version is in the works, though, If I were going to use this at all, it would be at the core of my workflow, and then it has to run on both macos and ios. Even if there were an ios version, there’s the question of how it would integrate into my workflow. I am never going to use this app to replace my next action lists (sorry, yes, GTD), so there has to be some path back and forth. I just don’t see anything that would make it fast and easy to get stuff in and out of a modern todo list app. More sharing options would be a good thing. Email alone looks like a headache. So maybe someday if there’s an ios app, but probably not because the benefit probably doesn’t justify the additional workflow burden.

Developer Response

iOS app is already in development and should not be too long. We wanted to get the Mac out when it was ready and not have to wait. But iOS is a high priority.

It's not actually Markdown under the hood. Agenda does import and export Markdown, but doesn't use it internally.

Text resizing is also a high priority for us. Stay tuned there!

As for where Agenda fits in: Note that it is not a todo list app, or a task manager, though it does have powerful lists. It's primarily a note taking app, and it does that much better than any GTD app I've worked with. I'm a big fan of OmniFocus, but I used to put a lot of stuff in there that didn't really belong, because I had nowhere else. Agenda has taken over a lot of the project oriented stuff.

Why are the best features so obvious in hindsight?

Bill Peach

This is an extremely novel app. With a bit more polish, I think it has the potential to be indispensable for a huge number of people. The developer(s) clearly put tons of energy into understanding the temporal nature of note taking, and they came up with some obvious, insanely useful functionality that major competitors have thus far failed to imagine. Agenda is not simply a place to store text — rather, it’s a tool that gently enforces practices to help you get much more value from your note-taking habits.

This version has some performance issues, bugs in the UI, and some shaky handling for calendar edge cases (lots of events captured in multiple calendars). Assuming the team gets past these issues, I can easily see Agenda replacing my current setup.

Five stars not for what it is right now, but for what I predict it will be when they’ve worked out the kinks. Please keep up the good work.

Developer Response

Thanks for your kind words, Bill. It is clear you get what we are trying to achieve. We have a new release coming very soon that will fix many of the stability and performance issues. And better calendar handling has a very high priority. Thanks for the feedback!

Good Addition to Work Flow


I am using this app to keep meeting notes and daily ‘do' lists. The most recent update addressed an issue I was having with pasteing but it seems very stable now so my only key frustration has been addressed. It's great to see that the developers are proactive in addressing issues. It is a clean interface, organized visually without being overly designed. I did upgrade to pro so I can tie it to my calendar.

It does see it in the app in context to my day but it would be great if it also added it - or had the option - to add it as an event. That would help me track time on projects or when I was working on a specific project. A small request - or maybe I have not discovered the setting yet - would be to view calendar time in the 12 hour format but that is just a personal preferance.

Great app and I am happy I discovered it. I look forward to the future developments and even now think it is a good addition to my workflow.

Developer Response

Great feedback. Thanks! We will see what we can do with it.
