“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“

For those of us with Chromebooks that don't support Android apps yet, not letting us use the app and telling us to update it in the Play Store is impossible. I love this app on my phone, but I would like to use it on my Chromebook tooBrandon B
Monospace is a simple app for taking notes and writing that features a user interface that was created specifically for touch devices. It does away with the typical editing features that you would find in standard writing and notes apps and replaces them with a modern-looking formatting popup that only includes the fundamentals of formatting text. The formatting styles Bold, Italics, Strikethrough, Bullet, and Quote, along with a whole host of other styles related to size, are all supported by Monospace Writer. You can keep all of your devices updated with the most recent version of your notes by using Monospace's built-in internal sync, which is only available in the Pro package. This feature also enables you to edit your notes from any location. The traditional folder organization method has been replaced by the hashtags feature of Monospace Writer. You only need to add hashtags, which can be nested, to the very last line of a file, and Monospace will take care of the organization of your files and folders for you. It is possible to export content from Monospace Writer using Markdown, which means that the program supports copy and paste for a vast number of online services, including Wordpress and Tumblr.
Agenda is Mac-only for now, but the developer says that an iOS version will be launched in the first half of 2018. That won’t be a deal-breaker for everyone, but it does preclude me from making it my full-time note-taking app. After I began testing Agenda, I took some notes about last week’s issue of MacStories Weekly. Almost immediately, I found myself in Slack on my iPad with Federico and Ryan wanting to refer back to a note but couldn’t. Agenda doesn’t include collaboration features either. Although you can export a note and send it to someone, Apple’s Notes app and third-party options like Google Docs and Quip remain better solutions for collaboration.JOHN VOORHEES
The innovative way that Agenda arranges notes onto a timeline helps you move your projects along. The only note-taking software that tracks the past, present, and future all at once, Agenda is the only one that gives you the full picture while other apps concentrate solely on the past, present, or future. Make notes on the items on your current agenda as you get ready for another meeting. You can write them down or draw them on your iPad with the Apple Pencil, your choice. To help you remember why you did what you did, use earlier notes as a trail. Individual notes can have dates attached to them, and you can even link them to events in your calendar. The alternative is to put them "On the Agenda." Agenda-related notes are given a special status. You can find them faster because they appear in a special group in the sidebar and are easier to search for. With more languages being added, Agenda is presently available in English, Afrikaans, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese. Agenda's notes are elegantly styled and loaded with useful tools like tags, links, tables, and lists. A styled-text editor called Agenda combines the simplicity of entering plain text with the visually appealing outcomes of rich text. Headings, lists, indented blocks, and pre-formatted text are examples of styles. You pay attention to the content of your notes, leaving Agenda to take care of the presentation. It produces papers with outstanding visual appeal, consistency, and ease of conversion to markdown and HTML formats. Task tracking is also a breeze with agenda notes. There are other list formats, such as checklists, and incorporating additional in-depth content is a no-brainer rather than an afterthought. You can concentrate on your notes with Agenda's clear, basic design, which gives the impression that they are printed on paper.
I have only just started using it, but it is immediately stable, usable, and good looking. I'm hoping that there will be a full-screen mode as that's what I'm really after. Get this app. If I keep using it, I'm going to have to find a way to send this guy some money. It's worth it already.

Please allow it to go full screen and let us resize the window, otherwise its a great simple app for writing, just needs to be a lot bigger.

Works fine on phone, but in ChromeOS i get the Version Expired error

This app impressed me more out of the box than anything I have tried in a while. The changes from what loosely similar apps do seem at first incremental but are powerful in a way that opens up very plausible workflows. The key thing is turning a static collection of notes into something that can flow with your calendar - it took me a little while to grasp the intent, but when it clicked and I realized it is not just a notes app replacement I could imagine lots of immediate uses. It is well worth taking the time to find and learn all the features - there is quite a bit hiding under the slick surface (maybe I am slow, but it was the second day before I found the settings button on the right hand slide-in panel) and I already see several reviews complaining about the absence of things that are actually there in the program. You can’t insert images yet but I see from their blog it is likely in the pipeline along with other things, and I happily paid for premium. Thanks to the developers!
I’ve never been able to use traditional paper planners well. While I’ve always seen how they could, in theory, be useful, I’ve tried many times to incorporate them into how I do things, and they always end up abandoned. This app offers some adjustments in just the right areas for me - it has enough structure to help keep me organized, but enough flexibility to rearrange things more easily than trying to constantly rewrite a paper planner. The ability to toggle things “on” and “off” the main list, as well as the ability to link notes to the Apple calendar app are a huge pluses as well for me in keeping the most important things handy at any given time. I also like that other things can be kept a little more tucked away, but still accessible as needed. Long story short, I’m a HUGE fan of this app, and have used it pretty much daily now for about three years. It’s perfect for my needs.
This will be a “I have never written a review before until now” type of review, which is true as I have never taken the time to review an app I’ve purchase/downloaded in the past. After using Agenda for the past week, I decided to make an exception. Agenda is a solid performing useful piece of software. I use it for my work and personal life. For work, I created a work log so I can start my day out with knowing what I have done and what I need to do. I connect my notes to a calendar event so I can track what items came out of the meeting and tasks which need completing. At the end of the day I review what was completed and note what still needs to be done. Rinse and repeat. I do the same for my personal life. I can do this with other apps too. Agenda is different because of the ease of use and all the great features included. Excellent job guys. Keep it up.
