I’ve had Agenda for a while now but only recently come up with a personal use-case for using it. So now that I’m starting to delve in, I’m finding that formatting text in the iOS app is… well, frankly pretty rough.
Example: I set up a long list in Agenda on my Mac yesterday, and each item had its own sub-categories like
Great! So then I’m on the train later and I think to add to that list. I’ll be damned if I could figure out a way to edit that list-formatted text in any way that didn’t turn into a wreck immediately. I ended up really screwing up some of the formatting and could only fix it later back on my Mac. There are also no controls for bold or italic, which is weird.
Ulysses’s tools for text formatting are very comprehensive and unobtrusive until you need them. Heck, even the stock iOS Notes app manages to provide some useful controls which are kept minimized until needed.
(And for the love of god, we really need a button to dismiss the keyboard when browsing through a note. Just getting out of “edit” mode is brutal right now.)
I’m loving Agenda for MacOS, but I just can’t see using the iOS version much beyond referring to what I’ve already typed in on the Mac. The text editor is still too rough in its current state.
