The iPhone (and iPod touch) versions of Peak Meetings have the same format as the iPad (HD) version, but their smaller size makes it’s even easier to have Peak Meetings with you at all times. That means you can instantly capture and organize your ideas and plans no matter where you are.
If you don’t have an iPad, get the full iPhone version today. Or try the free Lite version.
HOME + NEW MEETING SCREENS
The Home screen, on the left, gives you fast access to key tasks — starting a new meeting, working on an existing meeting, or using a Quick Guide to pull off a great meeting when you haven’t had time to prepare. The New Meeting screen, on the right, makes it easy to create a meeting, with 7 types to choose from. If a meeting is already listed in your calendar program, tap the “Import” button to bring in key details. And put in a Goal; that’s the best thing you can do to improve your meetings.
This shows you the top and bottom halves of the Profile pane. Every meeting, regardless of type, has this same set of options to profile your meeting. Some fields, like Agenda, go several layers deep, allowing you to capture and catalog a significant amount of information. Use the Notes function to record meeting minutes (Bluetooth keyboard, anyone?), or use it as a place to capture your thoughts, without worrying about where they should be filed.
SECTION LIST + DETAIL SCREEN
Every meeting type has a Profile and an Actions section. The middle three sections change from one meeting type to another. This example shows a list of items under the “Problem” section, and details for one of those items. On the detail screen, the navigation choices let you quickly move through the items, create a new item, or link this to an agenda item (coming soon!). And detail screens like this include prompts, such as “Why” above, to get you thinking more deeply about the topic.
MEETINGS LIST + EMAIL
If you tap the folder/list icon on the Home screen, you’ll get the Meetings list on the left. This shows all your meetings, organized by type — or one of the other choices at the bottom. The “Due” button lists action items, not meetings, if you’ve put in a due date. On the right is the top part of an email draft. Attendees’ email addresses are automatically inserted. If you’ve been taking the meeting minutes (lucky you), you can send those out before the others have even left the room.
Quick Guides help in two ways — deciding which meeting type to use, and as a fast reference when you have no time to prepare. Tap the compass icon on the Home screen to get a list of meeting types, plus a description of how the Quick Guides can help you. Tap one of the triangular buttons to see the details for a given Quick Guide. You’ll also be able to see a sample meeting for that type, or you can create a new meeting of that type, right from the Quick Guide.
PEAK MEETINGS LITE
The free Lite version gives you most of the capabilities of the full iPhone-version, with ads sprinkled in at the bottom. There are a few restrictions (of course): a limit of five meetings at any one time; it only works in Portrait mode; it won’t include the new Agenda link capabilities or the other additions in v3.0 and beyond. But, hey, it’s free; not a bad way to check this out. And when you’re ready for more, just tap the Upgrade note on the Home page.
