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.

I find this app along with the desktop version very helpful to organize and keep track of data. Highly recommended!
Would love to sharing options for Google Classroom or within the app itself to use in a classroom setting to share lab instructions!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the nice review and rating. We think using Findings in the classroom is a good fit. The app is free without restrictions on iOS and it's easy to send a protocol using the archive format, which the student can then import. Once they have a protocol/template, they can start an experiment from it, add notes, pictures, etc. and get a PDF output with just a couple of taps. We'll look into integration with Google Classroom. Feel free to contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we'd be very interested to discuss things.
Great for lab and field work.
I used Findings consistently throughout my masters program to track experiments and keep my notes, photos and data organized. When I started working, I thought it would be another beloved app that would never get opened again - but Findings has been AWESOME for field work in the same ways it was for lab work. No need to write which photo numbers correspond to which sites - just keep it all in an "experiment" in Findings. The best part is writing my nightly field reports - I just export my notebook to pdf and email to my project manager.
