Optionally embed locations, show notes as locations on a map



I think it would be great if Agenda incorporated the places I’m going on a given day. Some usage examples:

  • A grocery list for a specific store
  • A workout routine for a specific gym on a specific date
  • A list of things I want to order from a cool restaurant

A note could have multiple locations attached to it, similar to tags. A note could have a location automatically assigned based on current location when it’s created, similar to the “Add to Today” feature.

A map that links the places I’ve been and the dates I was there to the notes I made sounds so cool to me. I’d love to at least have a discussion about it. What do you guys think?


I would use a task manager for stuff like this - They are already built to be able to do all of this.

As much as it would be lovely to have Agenda cover absolutely all basis, I can imagine it becoming bloated.

There is nothing worse than what should be a relatively simple application (a notes app), become cumbersome and slow with an ambundence of features.

I’d recommend things 3 for what you are wanting - This would fit the bill nicely!


Valid points! I agree with focused, simple, powerful apps. A todo manager might be the answer here.

I do use and love Things 3. So far, I haven’t found a way that it can capture my current geolocation when taking notes, or a way to show me geolocations on a map with the appropriate task or project attached.

I’ve struggled to find any notes or todo app that offers a way to show my notes on an actual map. Drafts and Evernote come close, allowing you to attach geolocation data to a note and offering to automatically capture bespoke location using the CoreLocation services. I’m open to suggestions!


Hm, interesting idea @eichtyler, regarding the location tag hybrid; I can see that being useful.

For me, I have created my frequent locations into a tag with no spaces; reason being, since the location is of frequent visitation, I can click the tag I made for that particular note when desired and it will link it to the other notes with the location tag.

I also create a new note, under a particular project, titled ‘ARRIVING’ or "DEPARTING’ so now the note creation time is telling me the arrival time or departing time. All I do after creating the Arriv. / Depart. note is add the location tag I made and notes if necessary!


We have some ideas in this direction but it’s not as high priority as the things mentioned in The features we are working on right now…
