One of the main aspects I love about Agenda is its incorporation with the Apple Pencil! I try not to spread myself too thin by using other apps and perhaps categorizing.
For most of my life, my notes were always in handwriting. With that came countless doodles. In Agenda, I can doodle to my hearts content, in an array of colours, which facilitates thinking– it always has! But now I can bring in lovely photos which can even make Agenda into an Art Journal. (Actually, I just now thought of that! I like the idea a lot!) A digital Art Journal is just one potential project within an app designed to best organize yourself and your projects.
There have been many studies that have shown that the act of physically writing, as opposed to typing, is more readily conducive to learning as you have more of your body involved; it’s more open-ended. As an educator, who has studied the acquisition and development of cognition in depth, I’d certainly concur.
In OS14, Apple is really emphasizing the incorporation of the Pencil in a new app which I believe is called Scribbles.
I use Agenda for a myriad of purposes. I use it to journal.
I use it for research. It certainly helps me get organized.
I use it to help organize my writing. It helps to brainstorm.
I use it to think!
I had to do a clean install recently on one of my iPads. Unfortunately, I’m not sure how I’m going to get my work in Scrivener out. (There are some “files” in Files but they don’t readily open). The ideas and work I generated in Agenda is right there! (And I bought a thumb drive! LOL!)
I use it to organize digital art designs and their notes which I store in Files.
I hardly use Notes any more.
Look. You already have the knockdown gorgeous UI which is conducive to the artistically inclined. Go for it! You really don’t have that far to go! The artistic among us need an app just like Agenda! We’re just like everyone else.
If Agenda could convert handwriting to typing that would be terrific!
I got through five years of college without ever having to type a paper. “Sure. You’ll be able to read my paper. I have beautiful handwriting!” Essentially? I begged!
