Corkulous Now Allowing You to Organize Your Life for Free

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on February 16th, 2012

Appigo has just announced that the standard version of Corkulous, their premiere organization and planning app, is now totally free. This basic version will include access to one large cork board, which they can use to virtually pin up tasks, collaborative projects, brainstorming sessions, to-do lists and more. If you're the type of person who has a lot of ideas but can't seem to get them corralled and organized then this might be the ideal solution.

Users can also opt for an in-app upgrade to Corkulous Pro for $4.99. The expanded version includes multiple cork boards, the ability to next boards, exporting and sharing options, and iCloud support. It also bears noting that both versions of Corkulous support Dropbox.

Appigo is known for their productivity apps, but previous work such as Notebook and Todo were considerably drier and focused primarily on business users. Corkulous is still very business-friendly, but many will likely find it easier to use as a part of their day-to-day lives. The ability to quickly pin up pictures, notes and more makes the app ideal for practically any collaborative or brainstorming occasion.

The app also comes along at an ideal time, as the explosion of Pinterest has many folks jumping at the idea of pinning things up and then chatting about it with others. Not saying this will happen, but if Appigo finds some way to integrate this app with the social media service then we may be witnessing the birth of a bona-fide juggernaut.

At any rate, this is now a free app that you can use to get your life in order. What are you waiting for? Get corking!

Corkulous Learns To Share

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

I'm not sure what it is, but something about the iPad just screams "cork board." Maybe it's because the iPad is the perfect size for a little note/ picture collection center. Whatever the reason, cork board apps have been fairly popular on the iPad, and Corkulous seems to stand out from the crowd.

Not resting on their laurels though, the team at Appigo has updated Corkulous to add sharing and cork board templates, two additions that are definitely appreciated.

Board sharing in Corkulous can be done by either using the entire board, a specific view of the board, or just a collection of selected items. These items can be shared via email, placed in a website for download via mobile Safari, or sent via iTunes File Sharing.

The new template feature makes it possible for users to make Corkulous templates for common uses. Appigo uses a college student as an example, as they could make a note taking template for daily lectures.

“Corkulous works extremely well on the iPad and weʼve been getting great reviews from customers,” said Calvin Gaisford, Appigoʼs CEO. “Weʼre excited to see what kinds of new uses Corkulous board sharing brings to the iPad.”

Be sure to download the 1.6 update (out now), and if you don't have the app yet, pick it up and save a cork tree.

Corkulous for iPad First Look

Seems like one of the standard apps that developers came up with for the iPad has been that of a cork board. A simple place to put notes / reminders / etc. But most of the ones I've seen have been very barebones and simple. And quite honestly, rather uninspired. That is, until Corkulous from Appigo.

Corkulous shows what seasoned application developers can do with a simple idea. Taking the idea of a cork board and thinking about how people would use it and what extra features they would need.

You can attach not only post-it like notes to the board but also short text clips, images, even contacts. All great ways to attach bits and pieces that make up a board to keep track of things you need to get done or remember. New items can easily be added by grabbing the item you want to add from the drawer at the bottom of the screen. Items can easily be aligned by watching for the on screen guides that automatically pop up when you are lined up with other items -- a thoughtful touch.

Not only can you attach these information bits, but you can also embed other cork boards. So that on one cork board you can have a little icon that allows you to go to a whole new cork board. A great idea -- and infinitely expandable. Though be careful, you could easily get lost in a sea of cork boards!

You can also email screenshots of parts of your cork board to anyone from inside the app. And you can export PDFs of your whole cork board too.

There are a few things we'd love to see with this app. For one, I'd love to see an iPhone version too. And have the ability to keep all of my cork boards in sync. Would also love to see synchronized sharing done with other users on a single cork board. That would be fantastic.

Corkulous is a great app with great potential. Appigo aren't going to stop here, they have a great foundation, I can't wait to see where they go this this fantastic app. But even as it stands now, it's a great app and a great way to organize thoughts quickly.
