DURING THE MEETING
• Timer — The timer tracks the length of the meeting and alerts you via visual cues.
• Agenda — Your agenda is on the screen, so it’s easy to stick to it.
• Notes — You can create as many notes as you see fit in the note area. You can handwrite, type the text, create a mind map, record video, import pictures or record audio. You also have a handy calculator.
Action Items — Close with an action plan (actions to be taken, by whom and when). All items placed in the Action Items list will be displayed in the Action Pool.
• You can delegate action items to individuals and identify them by pressing the @ sign. You can set a due date for the item and send an email to notify the individual.
• You can share meeting notes as PDF files.
AFTER THE MEETING
All Actions list summarizes all action items developed during the meeting, giving you an overview of tasks to be done. When a task has been completed, you can mark the action item as done. With the Pro version, you can filter your action items by pulling down the filtering menu in the action pool. The All Actions list makes it easier for you to check progress and ensure that tasks are taking place as agreed.
The Meeting App is free to download and use.
The Meeting App Pro does not allow advertising and offers more great features, including the ability to send the agenda as a PDF file so members will be prepared and to check action progress and ensure that tasks are taking place as agreed. (The Meeting App Pro costs $2.99 a month or $29.99 a year through an in-app purchase.)

Ratings and Reviews
Simple and Useful
I got this app and use it to prepare for every meeting I attend. Besides the value of having an agenda, the action items allow me to take down a list of things as folks commit to doing them, which can then be reiterated and emailed after the meeting. When I am not leading the meeting, I add topical content to the agenda area to ensure that questions or concerns I have about the meeting topic are addressed. I do wish the note area wasn't so finicky when it comes to text notes. I have a keyboard for my Ipad, and find text notes easier and it gets to be a drag to have to create a 'text box' in the notes area instead of just dropping a cursor and typing away. I also took a minute to realize that action items disappear from the main screen only after every item from that meeting is complete. (a checkmark appears in the meeting listing to show that you've done all you need to do to follow up with the meeting) Like my action day planner, I find this will be a great tool to keep all the wonderful ideas and follow up that comes from meetings from going away or being forgotten. For a future release, it would be wonderful to have agenda templates for recurring meetings that have repetitive agendas. That would save some time, as many of my periodic meetings have this. Also, for those paper lovers, the ability to import a PDF file into the notes area would help keep my notes organized as well as limit my need to bring documents to the meeting in paper format. It's probably the simplest, most effective meeting planner I've used.
No longer works

Needs a Calendar & Task Summary Component
The Meeting App has potential, but needs some revisions. I could create notebooks for all my weekly meetings and keep track of each meeting. Set up of meetings & contacts was challenging with some gliches. App needs "hint" buttons to simplify the process. In the meeting screen I liked having 3 areas to write - 1 for notes, 1 for decisions and 1 for delegating. I was able to quickly write myself a big note to call a colleague. The instant email from the note screen to a colleague is probably the best feature. I could not connect this app to my iPad calendar, even with the help of my "techie" husband. He felt it was a problem with the app. Calendar & task sunmmary list is needed as well. In order to see follow-through of projects, I had to go back into each meeting to review. This was time consuming, especially since whole premise is to save time. App is expensive for what you get.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
