Anyone find a good calendar + note taking app ?

November 9, 2020 at 4:27pm
Hello All,
I've been using 'Agenda' app for a bit now and it fits in my workflow like a champ. But I'm kinda looking for other similar apps because of the design language they used and the pricing.
Please let me know if you come across any other similar good apps.
Thanks in advance.

I switch back and forth between Agenda and Google Tasks. Slack also has an entire ecosystem of productivity and calendar based task integrations.
(davidhackett) i'll check those out. Thanks

I used Agenda for a long time, but I'm hopping between that and Notion... Notion is awesome. But Agenda is great because it syncs using iCloud / Airdrop or whatever and doesn't even need to connect to the internet

Yes. I totally agree. My workflow with Agenda was.. Since it syncs with my calendar. I can make notes or list down the content/material I would need for that meeting and finally, I'd use that to send out MoM to all my teammates. I'll give it a shot again one more time see how it goes

If it still works for u, I'm using Notion for all my life cases from notes to task management and planning. It's really a powerful tool that allows me to do anything (or almost so). It allows me to share some stuff with my team as well. That's why my current pick is notion for almost everyting :)

Hey (rbarvapalli) 👋 NotePlan is pretty similar to Agenda, but with a more privacy-first approach since the markdown files are stored locally or get synced via CloudKit. NotePlan is Solo-developed by Eduard Metzger so you would support indie development. It looks great, gorgeous UI/UX, integrates with iCal and reminders, fully markdown supported, and more! Might give it a try!

I have been using Dropbox Paper and been fantastic, there is some UX issues that Dropbox need to work but there is a gigantic potencial on Paper

I heard monday was more for team organizing and tasks. I'm more looking for myself. Here's my use case - i generally have up to 5/6 meetings a day. I want to be prepared for them. The night before, I type up notes of the points i want to discuss during those meetings or tasks,deliverables i need to be ready for that meeting.
