I like Agenda and I am a fully paid customer because I want to see this project move forward. I have put my money where my mouth is so I will now speak on some things. This is meant to be constructive criticism and not in any way personal.
I like how Agenda is really at it’s core, the underpinnings of a project management model, without the “literal timeline”. I like the concept very much and how it’s the “same app” in both the iOS and Desktop versions.
Where I feel the application is really struggling is in my experience of text imputing and ToDo structures.
First, there is a bug (which I have submitted in the support topic) with multiple configured keyboards on the iOS version that until addressed, makes Agenda non functional for me on my iPad. I am confident this will get the appropriate attention and resolved quickly once the issue is identified and a solution is created. - No worries there!
On the desktop version, input of the different types of entries ie Title, List types etc. are cumbersome to invoke. The “little circle” on the left of a line is not always present and is “fickle” in its invocation. The right button fly-out menu is cumbersome to use in a normal typist’s flow. We really need keyboard shortcuts! I know this has been mentioned and hopefully the appropriate priority will come into the development cycle. A more MD markup approach to entering lines and assigning them attributes for those who prefer that (like me) would be really nice. (Noteplan has this approach and it’s nice.) Yeah, mentioned in the roadmap and that’s great!
Also discussed on the forums and on the “ToDo” list of future development roadmap are other suggestions about “ToDo” lists. Ironic isn’t it? Project oriented models associated with dates is logically associated with the tasks needed to be completed as we drive to completion.
One such ToDo structure I use in my planning is a Topic of an item (as a note?) associated with the greater project scope. It feels like Agenda is “missing a layer” of organizational structure?
It would for example be more helpful to have a checkable ToDo item that had children of other ToDo items that much be checked off or neutralized before the parent ToDo could be cleared. A parent ToDo contingent upon the status of its children. Associating all these with dates and reminders of course.
This is what is kinda’ missing in the big picture that Agenda so wonderfully seeks to address.
Thank you for all your hard work and listening ear.
Edit: The multiple keyboards issue seems to be a problem with the iOS code across many applications - not just Agenda
