Need an app to manage meetings? Try the “for Meetings” iPad app

1. for Meetings Editor - Structured Content

One of the more recent iPad apps that has caught our attention is for Meetings, an app by independent Melbourne-based software house Imperative Software. It’s one of those apps that makes it much easier to schedule, manage and organise meetings, as well as publish your meeting notes afterwards.

It seems that people are not averse to exploring Outlook alternatives with intuitive and dedicated apps, especially on tablets.

Judging by the screenshots, the company’s product video, and a bit of limited use over the weekend, for Meetings certainly looks like a genuinely useful meetings app.

Imperative Software launched the free app last month, purpose-built for the recording of notes, agenda items, actions, remarks and more. It takes a fresh approach to representing and editing meeting notes – select content simply by swiping down the side of the page to move, copy, delete or indent using simple gestures. Attendees can also be visualised around a virtual table – a nice touch (and the table expands when more people are added).

Connecting attendees to content is as simple as dragging them; likewise, you can easily mark people as absent or assign an apology status.
