Looks promising but being a Mac exclusive is a real pain.
An intriguing method for taking notes on a Mac, Agenda organizes your notes based on the dates and times that you specify in your calendar. The application is gorgeously designed, and it has a surprising number of features for a version 1.0. However, it does not have an iOS equivalent (which is currently being developed), and it does not have any features that facilitate collaboration, which will prevent it from appealing to some users. Even though there are some rough spots in the app, Agenda has a lot of potential and should be appealing to anyone who has a lot of things to keep track of on their calendars at once. Notes are arranged in an agenda according to projects, which are a part of categories. Notes pertaining to a specific project are displayed in the middle of Agenda's window, and on either side of those notes are panels that allow you to navigate through your notes. The 'jump menu' is located at the top of the window and is referred to as the 'jump menu' by Agenda. Although it offers a significant portion of the same functionality as the left-hand panel, the jump menu is useful for navigating notes when the left-hand panel is not visible. Your notes take up the majority of the space in the middle column of the window when navigational panels are placed on both sides. The layout offers symmetry and balance, with the focus being placed more squarely on the notes as opposed to the navigation, which is something that I really like about it. Both panels have the ability to be covered up, but I don't find either of them particularly distracting because they can be shrunk down to the size of strips that are not only functional but also very thin. You can create notes in Agenda by either clicking on the plus button that is located at the top of the window or by typing Cmd+N. By default, new notes are displayed at the top of the window in reverse chronological order; however, the order of the notes can be changed by clicking on the name of the project or note in the jump menu. This will bring up a menu that allows you to navigate between projects and notes. A selected note has a background that is light yellow, but other than that, the distinction between one note and the next is primarily determined by the titles of the notes. The following screenshot includes three different types of notes: Test Note, Topics, and Issue 112. The Test Note that is located at the bottom of the window is currently selected, as can be seen from the jump menu that is located at the top of the window. This menu indicates that the note is located in the Weekly project within the MacStories category. The pricing model of Agenda is something that should be mentioned as well because of how unusual it is. The fundamental features of Agenda do not cost anything. The ability to create calendar events, save searches, copy and export Markdown, and other premium features can be unlocked by making an in-app purchase within the app. The in-app purchase also includes access to any new features that are released in the app during the subsequent year after the initial purchase. If you do not pay for the app again at the end of the year, it will continue to function normally, you will continue to receive bug fixes, and any features that you have unlocked will continue to work; however, you will not receive any new features that are added.
MyMind also makes it easy to add manually typed notes. You can use markdown language to format your notes. I am not a big markdown user, but it is a good option to have. Once again, you can add your own tags, but MyMind will search all the text automatically.
A browser designed exclusively for using the internet is called Command. The browser offers connections with well-known note-taking apps, a web highlighter, and an online notebook. TLD HIGHLIGHTER To surf the web like a book, use Command's web highlighter. Markup increases page readability. WEBSITE MAGAZINES Write down the information you discover in your command journals. Save websites, memes, and other items for quick access. READING LIST You should save articles so you may later read and annotate them without using up all of your favorites. The app allows users to submit content from even outside sources! INTEGRATIONS To keep track of the information you read and contribute it to your knowledge base, Command integrates with well-known note-taking apps like Notion, Readwise, and OneNote. REMAIN CENTRIC To assist you with maintaining your concentration while reading, Command provides features like highlighting, ad blocking, and no notifications. STAY SAFE Your information is stored on your servers, not those of other people. But Command uses iCloud to sync, not other servers. We use biometric locks to secure your private tabs. There is no registration needed to use Command.
Now that Agenda is available on iOS, I'm using it full time for most of my notes. The design of it is simple and intuitive once you get the hang of things, and I truly enjoy being able to assign due dates to notes. It's useful for this line of work, and the iCloud sync is practically seamless and invisible. It's definitely a flexible note-taking app that can work with you if you experiment a little, since it combines three productivity apps in one. But it's completely free to download and use, with some useful bonus features if you decide to dive in completely.

It is an amazing (simple to use) application. I'm using free version macbook app for my product management such as notes, product requirement document, customer interviews, customer feedbacks, new ideas bucket. I love this tool. Made my life very easy.

This app is a great concept. I love the idea of being able to save all my clippings and ideas in one place without the need to sort or tag them, but then still be able to find them later. The issue for me is that, because I do so much work on my iPhone, I need a solid iPhone app. That’s where mymind falls (very) short and it’s what is keeping me from subscribing. Right now, the app feels like the web browser. There’s no dark mode (as basic must-have for paid apps) and some things just don’t save. For example, trying to save an Instagram post results in an error message. In addition, the AI is not as good as Apple Notes. I did a couple of side-by-side comparisons and I had more success finding things in Apple Notes than MyMind.
This is truly transformational in organizing all parts of my daily and long term ideas, inspirations, and utility focused resources. The organization of multiple content types alone would make this invaluable, but the ability to search beyond just tags and folders through AI removes my burden in saving things properly and assures that I never am stuck in a position where I’m unable to find what I’m looking for. This is better than my actual mind, it’s my brain supercharged and much more organized. I can’t wait to see how much better it gets as I continue to fill it with resources.
As a creative who does a lot of internet research, I’ve tried many tools over the years to organize everything I gather from the internet. Evernote, Instapaper, Pocket, Pinterest, you name it. But because I do a lot visual work, I felt that all of those tool were either lacking or over complicated. MyMind AI tagging system and super fast image loading is a game changer for me. Its a very simple, minimalistic and it just work. Love it. I just wish it wasn’t as pricey as it is, and I’m-fast image loading is a game-changer for me.
