Agenda 11.0: 20 Sept 2020

Agenda has added new premium features and iPadOS 14 support for scribble and widgets.

The New Premium Features

Subtle Tag Appearance

If you didn’t like the tags in the app or you prefer something that won’t stand out too much, this update is for you. The new tags blend into your notes. They only have a different colour and are in a tiny text box. 

Dashes And Bullets For Unnumbered Lists

Now you can choose between dashes and bullets for your unnumbered lists in Agenda. We still don’t have varying bullet points for creating hierarchies in our lists though. It is easier to understand the organisational levels of your lists when the bullet points are different.

Strikeout & Grey Out For Interactive Checklist

We couldn’t be happier about this update. Striking out completed tasks makes it easier to differentiate them from incomplete ones. Greying them out is also a good option for those that don’t like striking out.

Sample Content

You can now preview how your notes will look as you change your preferences. This will save you a lot of time. Imagine making and saving new changes only to realise you don’t like how they look after you have closed the preferences tab.

iPadOS 14 Support


You can now use your Apple Pencil to scribble your notes in Agenda. Handwriting notes is an important part of our lives. If you’ve been missing that and wishing to handwrite your notes, now you can. 

Upcoming Agenda Widgets

Agenda has added new widgets for your upcoming events in iPadOS 14. You no longer need to open the app to see your schedule.
