Appigo Introduces Todo Exchange Tasks

Posted by Jennifer Allen on May 30th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

In the past, Appigo has always done a great job of providing useful tools for those in need of organizing their lives and becoming more productive. Its products such as Todo and Notebook have continued to evolve, keeping consistently relevant for its users.

Today marks the release of a new app from the firm -- one particularly aimed at business-focused users. Todo Exchange Tasks gives that same to-do list app quality that regular Todo provided but it also enables users to directly access their to-do list stored on a Microsoft Exchange server.

Connecting up via Microsoft Exchange 2007 and 2010 using ActiveSync, it sounds so simple and that's because it is. Users can quickly view their to-do lists via their iOS device as well as create new tasks and mark them as completed. Task organization is also possible and everything is automatically synced.

For those who regularly access a Microsoft Exchange Server for work, this will be an essential purchase.

Todo Exchange Tasks is out now priced at $9.99.

Springpad Updates With New Features

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 16th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Previously, Springpad felt quite a bit like a competitor to popular note-syncing service, Evernote. Now, with Springpad’s 3.0 release, the service has added social networking features that make the app feel similar to Pinterest.

Probably the biggest feature in the new Springpad is the ability to create collaborative notebooks with friends. In the video below, the actors demonstrate making a notebook like “Book Suggestions” where only the friends with opinions users really care about would be invited to the notebook and make suggestions.

Another feature that seems to have potential is the information automatically added to notebooks when a new entry is created. Price comparisons, maps, movie reviews, and more are added depending on what’s added to the notebook.

Users only need to follow the notebooks from their friends that they’re actually interested in, not the friend themselves. Apparently, Springpad understands that I’m not interested in seeing my friends’ rap suggestions but book and movie notebooks will work. And now, Springpad has created an Explore section with content tags that makes it easier to find notebooks from other people that are curating content that users may be interested in.

Springpad has a universal iOS app, so check it out on either the iPad or iPhone.

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!

Appigo's Notebook App Comes To iPad And Adds DropBox

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :: Read Review »

Originally designed for the iPhone, Appigo's Notebook app has gone through a major update and is now a universal app designed to play nicely with the iPad as well. The productivity app is well known for offering a simple user interface and solid feature set to create, share and edit notes. The new 2.0 version is now optimized for Dropbox syncing, which allows the user to share notes on all iOS devices as well as Mac and PC platforms. In addition to sharing between the user's devices, this new support makes sharing with friends, family or colleagues even easier.

The update plays off the company's thought that adding a powerful collaboration tool was necessary for its users. The new version adds a familiar notebook interface with full-screen editing capabilities and overall the update seems to be a cost effective productivity tool for users with multiple iOS devices. The notes are saved in standard text format and is compatible with PC and Mac text editing applications. Notebook is available on the iTunes App Store for $4.99.

Retro Writing With Molenotes

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

While futuristic technology is amazing, sometimes it's nice to retreat back to a simpler time. A time where writing in notebooks was the big trend for expressing creativity. A time when it was possible to run out of space on a page rather than a document simply carrying users onto the next one automatically. Fancy relieving that? Try Molenotes.

It's an attractive looking app that ensures the user feels as if they're writing on a real page in a real book. Users can choose to express themselves in handwriting, academic type-set or in a typewriter style manner. Five notebook looks are also available. Users can also add custom colored tabs and titles as well as manually stamping the current day's date. Users can even add a bookmark to their notebook to know exactly where they last looked.

Limitations are there of course. Once a page is full, users must enter more information on the next page. There's a 32 page limit too. That's all part of the old fashioned charm, however.

Molenotes is out now for all iOS devices and is priced at $0.99.
