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.
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. 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.
THE 'MEANING FULL' TEXT EDITOR
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.
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.
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.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Combine writing, scheduling, and task-managing in a timeline that syncs via iCloud.
Maybe someday but probably not
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.
Please note that the text size is adjustable now, just like in a web browser.
The iOS app is very close to release. We will be starting beta testing soon. You can find out more at http://agenda.community.
In terms of integrating with other apps, including GTD apps, we now support sharing extensions, so there is a good chance you can add content and links from in Agenda. Agenda supports links that you can copy of share to other apps, and when clicked, open Agenda and take you straight to the note. The same is true going the other way: you can take a link to an item from another app — or drag in an item — and Agenda will open that app when the link is clicked.
App Pricing Done Right
I have to give the developer major credit for their pricing model. I don’t want have to pay a yearly subscription for a piece of software. I want to pay once, get the features I paid for, get bug fixes, and IF down the line they add enough new and interesting features, I’m happy to pay for access to those. What’s more, if I stop paying, I shouldn’t lose any functionality. There are other notes apps in the store that I’ve wanted to try but I won’t because they do the lazy yearly subscription fee, promise nothing, and if you stop paying you lose functionality. No thanks. The developers at Agenda _respect_ their users. That says a lot.
As for the app itself it works great. It’s a clean UI. Easy to figure out. Integration with calendar is a great feature. Related notes is super useful. Basically, everything they advertise they do well. The only criticism, and it’s a small one, is I would like more control of the layout. The spacing in particular is throwing me off and my notes are taking up too much vertical space. There is font size control which helps but, as a designer, I really want control of my leading.
Never the less, a great app.
Thanks for the support!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
