Get All Features

Agenda comes out of the box with a great set of features, completely free. There are no time or trial limits. You can use it forever, at no cost.

Agenda does offer extra premium features that require an In App Purchase, and that make the app even more powerful. If you decide to purchase the upgrade, you permanently unlock all current premium features across all of your devices. Each of them is described in detail below.

Additionally, any new premium features we add in the 12 months following your purchase are also permanently unlocked.

The Premium Features Overview before (left) and after (right) purchasing the premium features through an In-App Purchase. This window shows information about all the premium features and can be found under the Help menu.

If you buy from your iPhone or iPad you can choose between buying the premium features either for iOS + iPadOS only, or for iOS + iPadOS + macOS. If you buy from your Mac the premium features will always include all three platforms. Once bought, simply log in to the same Agenda account in the Agenda preference on each of your devices to unlock the premium features.

As indie developers we fully rely on your support in order to be able to continue to develop Agenda and make a living*. Vice versa, we would like to reward you by giving you the new features we are able to develop thanks to the trust you put in us.

Thank you for your support!
Alex & Drew

Premium Features Overview

Save Notes as Templates - NEW

Save an existing notes as a template and use it to create new notes from this template by click-and-hold (macOS) or a long press (iOS+iPadOS) on the plus button. Great for those notes that have a standard format, like meeting minutes and forms.

You can manage your templates by choosing Window > Template Manager from the main menu on macOS, or long-pressing the plus button on iOS+iPadOS and selecting Manage Templates. The template manager also allows you to create a template from scratch.

On iOS and iPadOS tap the three orange dots next to a selected project and choose Archive Project from the popover menu that will show. You can also Long-tap and release a project to trigger the same menu.

The easiest way to create a subcategory is to simply drag an existing category on top of another category.

Long-tap the image in your note and select Annotate in the popover menu. Afterwards you can further change or add annotations by choosing Edit from the same menu. Note that this does only work with images, not yet with PDFs, something we hope to make possible in a future update as well.

I upgraded, but there’s still a get Agenda footer link in my PDF’s - can I get rid of that somehow?

I’ll happily promote Agenda to everyone, but would like an anonymous PDF export if I can please.

Yes, this is possible, if you show the details in the print panel you can check the button to hide the agenda link in the footer. And of course, thank you so much for supporting us!

So, to clarify, “permanently” definitely means that after the 12 month period features I got by paying the premium — like “Copy and Export Markdown” — will still be mine to use regardless of whether I pay the premium in the future?

Exactly! The objective with our model was that it was more like a magazine subscription, in the sense that when you stop paying, you keep what you already paid for.

Fantastic app, I immediately purchased the premium version. Btw. I also really like your approach on premium. Looking forward to the iOS app and some of the features you already mentioned like images, attachments, maybe integration with apps like OmniFocus etc.

But I already love it, now I always look forward for new meeting where I can use Agenda :slight_smile:

I’m about to purchase premium, but I have a question first: I understand that I will get all premium features that are going to be released in the next 12 months. But after that, if new features are included, I will have to pay for each extra feature or do I get premium features for 12 months again?

After 12 months the situation will repeat itself, i.e. you purchase the new premium features once you think they are attractive enough, and doing so will unlock those plus all new premium features in the following 12 months.

I really appreciate your business model which I think is RESPECTFUL! on so many levels!

More over the license inclusive to iOS.

For those reasons I’m going premium now even though I don’t think I’ll be needing the premium features, I just appreciate the respect and I think you deserve the support!

I’m looking at Agenda and really like what I see. This is such a powerful program and seems to answer several needs that I have. Your reply to diegonavarro leaves me confused about the premium features. This response seems to say that after 12 months, it will be necessary to repurchase the premium features. In your response to konetidy, you used a magazine simile to describe buying premium features. I know what you are doing makes sense. What am I missing?

Any features you buy are yours to keep forever, no need to repurchase after 12 months. Any new features we ship after your year ends you will have to buy if you’d like to have them.

It’s indeed like a magazine subscription. Stop your subscription and the pile of National Geographic magazines at your home are yours to keep, they don’t ask to send them back. However they won’t send and new ones to your home anymore either.

Hello, i need help purchaing the premium package…every time i click the purchase option the “purchasing” box has a spinning wheel and i just spins without making any progress… do you know of any way to fix this?

It seems the Mac App Store is quite slow the last few days. Sometimes you just have to wait. You could check that there is no login dialog appearing under a window or something like that. You need to sign in to the Mac App Store and it shows the dialog to sign in sometimes.

If it really doesn’t want to work, you can download directly from agenda.com, and purchase in the app using Paddle instead of the Mac App Store.

I like it! :slight_smile:
