My thanks to Agenda for sponsoring this week at DF. Note-taking apps are near and dear to my heart. It’s hard thing to do well, and a really hard thing to do originally. Agenda does it both really well and in an original way. Agenda is date-focused, which is different than anything I’ve seen before. If you’ve never had a notes app click for you, Agenda might. By linking dates — and, if you want, calendar events — to notes, Agenda has a sense of past, present, and future.

They started with a great Mac app — so good that it was the only Mac app of any kind to win an Apple Design Award in 2018. They then added an iOS app, which syncs seemlessly with the Mac app using CloudKit. Markdown formatting, checklists, true native apps, great UI style, an active user community — yes to all the above.

And, now, Agenda has just added support for images and file attachments — their most-requested feature. Agenda is great for everything from meeting notes to travel journals. It’s free to download and use forever, on both Mac and iOS, with premium features available via a truly unique in-app purchase system, not a subscription.

Check it out. They even have an absolutely perfect icon. Agenda is truly a great app.
