Meetings - Notebooks for Work - Meeting Notes, Agendas, and Minutes
By Steven Romej
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Meetings helps you create structured meeting notes that are consistent, clear, and fully searchable. Note who was there, what was said, and what needs to happen next. Imagine holding a record of key decisions over the past year in your hand.
RECORD, RETAIN, AND RECALL
Give your meeting notes a title, adjust the date and time, add attendees, and create action items. You can pick the things you need for each document you create. Everything is searchable so you can later find meetings that mention 'deliverables' or 'hiring' or just those that 'Emma Avery' attended.
Capture whiteboard or presentation images within the app, or add your own from the photo picker.
HE SAID, SHE SAID
Add attendees from your address book. While typing notes you can access and insert attendee names directly into the document with a tap.
You can create a list of action items so you'll know what needs to happen before the next meeting. If you need to, add a due date or notes to each task. You can also assign an attendee (or someone else) to the action item so that you'll remember who's responsible.
NOTEBOOKS FOR WORK
Your notes are written in notebooks that you can rename and reorder. This makes creating a notebook for each project, client, department, or key issues easy.
SHARE WITH THE TEAM
Email or print a copy of your notes. There's a button to send-to-all-attendees if you need it. Draft an agenda, add attendees, and email it to them prior to the meeting. Afterward, you can send everyone a copy of the meeting minutes and action items.
You can also create a Calendar event for the meeting from within the app.
SIMPLE BY DEFAULT
A new meeting document starts with a title and your notes. Show or hide content sections as you need. If all you want is notes, hide the title. If you need to add attendees or a section with tasks you can.
MAKE A GOOD IMPRESSION
Maybe it's your job to take detailed notes, or maybe you're organized. Having a record to refer to and send out will help you get the recognition you deserve.
WASTE LESS TIME
Structured notes help you focus on key decisions and actionable next steps. If you find it difficult to distill a meeting into anything of substance you'll at least be able to make helping the team do better next time a goal.

Simple and Intuitive
This is a really simple and straightforward app, and it works perfectly for me. Honestly, I'm really selective when it comes to applications, because I build them for a living. I know how hard it is to keep feature sets from overwhelming basic User functionality. This is simple and intuitive, syncs with Dropbox for archival purposes, has just the right amount of customization. I love that there are only two options; tasks and notebooks. And that your tasks list out all the captured action items from your notebooks is really genius. Product and developments have really thought about usability and how to make note taking elegant. I've used Evernote, Asana, JIRA with Confluence, all sorts of complex fancy pants systems. What you need is a way to take notes in meetings, send the notes around to those you select and then actually do the things that were requested in the meeting. Sounds straightforward. But if you're in constant meetings, and never get a moment to think, it's not. Now, with "Meetings" ... it is. I use this on my iPad Pro, in conjunction with OmniFocus2 and a moleskine notebook. I still take notes by hand, often, but will type them up quickly with the help of the format, which has just the right number of options and layout. Perfect. Don't listen to all those who want to add extra bells and whistles, it's way harder to make something simple that works. "Meetings" works. Boom. Mic drop.
Good app but backup is a problem
There is no restore mode and it only backs up once a day. You can't ask it to back up. You have to send out individual PDFs from each day you make an entry. Too much trouble, it's a shame because it's a great idea and hopefully will improve.
I have had ongoing problems with my keyboard and I have replaced my iPad twice and keep doing restore. I just deleted this app and did a reset and it's gone. I'll come back and correct this if it comes back. Has anyone else had a problem with the keyboard going out of control since they have had this app? It types many of the same letter or skips letter. I can barely use the iPad to write. Very annoying & for the moment it's gone, since I deleted this App.
I'm not sure this is the problem but I'd like to know if anyone else has had this problem. It has been happening though 3 different iOS versions and sometimes I can make it go away by clicking the home button three times.
I downloaded this app and then forgot about it for a while. That was dumb.
This is a great and handy app. It formats notes quickly and the email options (in-line, PDFs or text) are just right.
I use it for notes from tel calls and meetings. I'd like to be able to add a check box for tel call versus meeting and a "client" line but perhaps too much customization would take away from its clean, simple look.
No complaints. Download it. It's great.
