I like what I’ve seen of Agenda. But two omissions from its feature set would discourage me from using it as a writer’s log: an iOS app (I increasingly write on my iPad), and tables with simple arithmetic (writer’s logs may not be all about word counts, but word counts are still the best metric of productivity and progress for many projects).

Hugh,

The developers have introduced an iOS app and it is very elegantly conceived (may still have a few bugs).

Thanks, Steve. My error.

Developers Charles Parnot (Findings) and Drew McCormack (Agenda) have discussed their collaboration in their respective forums.  I understand there is some shared code in the two apps.

As Steve mentioned, the iOS app is there.  From reading the drift in Agenda’s forum, I doubt dynamic variables will show up any time soon—but I believe markdown tables are on the horizon.  (Agenda’s “On the Horizon” list is sort of like seeing Russia from Wassila—one never knows what’s really going on over there).  You can link to an external Numbers or Excel or Numi or other file in the context of note in Agenda.
