My.Agenda: Written & Video iPhone App Review
Over the years, we’ve used more than our fair share of agenda, todo, and calendar applications. And out of all that experience, there’s only one thing we can tell you for sure: It’s pretty much a crapshoot. That being said, occasionally we come across an app that’s incredibly solid and works like the campion that it is. Today’s offering fits nicely into that box, and it’s called My.Agenda, from LightArrow, Inc.
It’s a brilliant utility that keeps all of your agendas, todos, calendars, and everything else in one spot. This makes it tremendously useful, and if you’re looking for a solid replacement for your current number, this might just be the one to do it. For our full review, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
Now, it’s worth mentioning right out of the gate that My.Agenda is not just an organizer application. Or rather, it is but it comes with so much more. In essence, the app is the “lite” version of the larger LifeTopix application. This app allows you to do everything that My.Agenda does, only with life topics added: These are custom-built organizers that provide predetermined goals and agendas, as well as basic assistance. You can use these within My.Agenda, however, you’ll need to purchase them.
So what do you get with just My.Agenda right out of the box? Well, basically you’ll get everything you could want out of an organizer to begin with. You’ll get an integrated iCalendar interface, as well as a todo list organizer and an agenda. All of this can be seen in a single glance, too. You’ll also get autobackup using DropBox or email, as well as geotagged services that allow you to see your reminders around you. Oh, and you’ll get timed reminders. Did we mention that the app comes fully loaded?
Graphics and Design
Then again, you’re probably thinking the same thing we were at this point: Why should I use My.Agenda instead of [insert current app]? Well, the honest answer is this—the design of it. The app is gorgeously laid out, and keeps all of your information in one place. The sidebar navigation is truly top-notch—we don’t say that often—while the corner nav items are incredibly useful. If you spend more than a little time with the app setting up your reminders, you’ll quickly get into the habit of using it. And the end result of this is one speedy experience that’s truly incredible.
At the end of the day, My.Agenda is perhaps the best dollar you can spend on a management application. And that’s just for the raw power of the simple app. If you want to expand to have My.Agenda take care of almost every aspect of your life, then you can easily do so with only a little bit more money. All in all, this makes the app a real bargain, and a highlight of any productivity nerd’s app drawer.
My.Agenda requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
