Creating a new meeting on The Meeting App is simple and intuitive. Users simply click on the plus button in the bottom left hand corner of the screen, and a new meeting tab will appear in the sidebar. Here, they can automatically make a calendar event by giving the meeting a title and adding the time and location, which is easy using the advanced location technology of the device. Users can also list invitees and add alerts or make the event repeat.
The meeting can then be added to one of four color-coded categories, or shared via Dropbox or email. A handy option allows the user to send an email to all attendees listed for the event. Planners can send out emails before a meeting to notify their invitees, send out assigned tasks to specified people afterwards, or make PDFs of their meeting notes for sharing.
Once created, the workspace available during a meeting features an intuitive layout for decision making and transforming decisions into action. The Decision and Action sections allow users to type in the purpose of their meeting and the who, what, and when of actions that will follow up the meeting as a result of these decisions. Beneath these two sections is a wide note space where users have a multitude of tools to create the most comprehensive record of a meeting possible.
The Notes section is adjustable, and users can therefore make it larger or smaller based on their specific use. A handwriting tool allows users to write notes freely in one of six vibrant colors, while the text option also allows users to type up their notes. The typed text offers extensive color as well as font size and style options. A calculator tool is available for instant and easy mathematical calculations, and the import picture feature lets users add visual components to their notes. Pictures can be taken using the camera on the iPad or chosen from the pre-existing camera roll.
The Notes area also offers a progressive recording option that allows users to add sound bites from meetings to the notes that can then be played with one easy tap on the screen. The mind map option is similarly convenient and simple, and users can create colorful connecting charts to help organize their ideas.
A handy automatic save feature saves the planning and notes that users create as they do it, preventing any possible information loss. The application's search capability allows users to find key information instantly, adding to its usefulness and appeal to the busy executive.
"No more pointless meetings," says founder and CEO of Action Day Thorsteinn Gardarsson. "The Meeting App is designed for productivity, making it easy for you to go from note taking to decision making, followed by action."
The Meeting App 1.1.5 is $9.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
