“Agenda” is an organizer for the TI-92+ with password protection, “Outlook” synchronization, ROM Backup, and more. In my opinion, this is one of the most useful and important programs available for the TI-92+. I use it for almost everything, address lists, todo lists, password lists, homework, financial management, glossary and so on.

Its main components are:

1) The Agenda
The agenda is a date book where every day has it's own text area that can hold as much text as you want. Additionally, birthdays and holidays are automatically added; in the overview, birthdays are displayed as an "!" and holidays as an "X".

2) The Address Book
The address book is divided in groups. Every contact has the fields surname, first name, street, city, email, phone number, mobile phone number, birthday and miscellaneous. As said, the birthdays are automatically added to the agenda.

3) The Notepad
Like the address book, the notepad is divided in groups. Simply every kind of information can be stored here in file-like entries.

4) Web Links
Basically the same as the notepad, but intended for links.

“Agenda” is very simple to use and every action has its own key combination. [MODE] shows the general options menu, [APPS] shows a context menu. All key combinations are of course displayed in the appropriate menus.

Next to so much convenience and features, there are unfortunately some bugs, too. The worst problem is that the agenda component likes to crash, so whenever you want to show the agenda, press [F7] to backup your data (and make sure that all important files are archived!).

Missing features / problems are, for example:
a) Automatically jump to the present day in agenda
b) Group sorting
c) Entry selection by typing the first character (so that one can press for example "T" to jump to the first item that begins with "T")
d) A search method
e) Some kind of popup evaluator where one can do, for example, a calculation with TI's AMS and see/copy the result, because for now, you have to quit the “Agenda” to do anything else.
f) text scrolling is very slow (test it, you will see what I mean)
g) There's no scroll bar display

“Agenda” is a nifty, easy-to-use program. I recommend downloading it. I would give the program a 9/10, because of its convenient interface and MS Outlook synchronization.

The only thing I would change about it is there is no built-in calendar. All in all, “Agenda” is useful and is worth downloading.
