Findings is your lab notebook, reinvented. With Findings, you can easily keep track of your experiments and your research: your lab notebook is always with you and always up to date, be it on the field, at the bench, or at a conference. Findings helps you browse your results, reproduce crucial experiments, and assemble and publish your discoveries. Findings for iOS is even more powerful when used in combination with Findings for Mac (separate app available on our web site), and with Apple Watch. EXPERIMENTS. With Findings, all your experiments are in one place, neatly arranged and easy to browse. See what you have planned for today and this week. You can follow your progress, add a picture or a quick note, edit your experiment conditions, and never forget a step. Once finished, your results are safely stored alongside your notes and the protocols you used. All in one place, always saved, always accessible to your future self. TIMERS & TIMESTAMPS. You can attach a countdown timer, a stopwatch or a timestamp to any task in any of your experiments. All your running timers are accessible from the list of experiments and can easily be viewed in context with just one more tap. Thanks to local notifications, Findings will remind you when the time has come, whatever app you're using, wherever you are, online or offline. And of course, Apple Watch works great with timers too! PROTOCOLS. Protocols have a special place in Findings, where you can browse, edit, and organize them. Protocols are the primary building blocks of your experiments. You can add one protocol or multiple protocols to an experiment. Once integrated, a copy of the protocol is made, so you can modify it just for that one use, and leave the original untouched. Protocols can be organized by field, with a number of sufields available for each: biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, engineering, mathematics, cookery. Findings is for all the branches of science. SYNC. All your data can be automatically synced and backed up to Dropbox. Once linked to a Dropbox account, your experiments and protocols are shared with Findings on other iOS devices or on your Mac (separate Findings app for Mac available on our web site). SHARING AND COLLABORATING. Your research should not be in a silo. Findings can easily export any subset or all of your experiments and protocols to PDF, with all the attachments neatly arranged in folders. With our smart export/import features, you can also collaborate directly with Findings, and choose what to share, how to share it and when to share it. YOUR DATA IS YOURS. Unlike most electronic lab notebooks (ELN), your data is not stored on a server and remains under your control. Experiments and protocols are stored in an open-source format (PARStore) and are always with you, even when offline. And you can still get the best of both worlds: with Dropbox sync, you can keep your data in sync on multiple devices, while having an extra backup.



  • Overall is a must have app

    By pangeng
    This is a must have app for lab researchers. Hope it can be even more good.
  • Great resource for the lab

    By Rali M.
    I love the functionality of findings; it makes management of experiments so much easier. There is no longer an excuse not to keep a lab book. Great customer support, too. One negative - the app does drain your battery, but hopefully future updates will improve on this.
  • Love it!

    By ZaN!
    I'm loving this app. The interface is very friendly and definitively helps me to plan and pit experiments together. Indeed it would be useful to have the option of resetting the timer since it is not possible now. Overall the app is great.
  • Great App

    By spdegabrielle
    This app lets you create protocols and use them for recording experiments in a 'Lab notebook'. It is well designed, easy to use and there is nothing like it on the App Store! Excellent (responsive) support! I love how I can change a note type while editing!
  • Plenty of improvements needed

    By Kingqueenace
    V1.2 - The app is great I love how protocols can be put together to create an experiment, this is how I work in lab. Something I would like though is to be able to reset the timer in case I accidentally set it off early or need to repeat the step without deleting the timer and adding it again, you can do it on the Apple Watch so why not on the phone? V1.3 - Now I can't add timers at all on protocols?
  • Nice app but not yet fully usable

    By DR_PK
    Nice layout for protocols and experiments. However if you sync the app with findings for Mac and have sub or superscripts, then all the formatting goes out the window and you end up with something looking like html code instead. Hope the developers will fix this soon.
