The Corkulous App created by Appigo allows you to collect, organize and share your ideas. This app requires your iPhone, iPod Touch and/or iPad to operate with the iOS version 5.0 or later. Corkulous is a multi-purpose app that contains a corkboards setting where you can place/take notes, labels, photos, contacts, and tasks. It allows you to place all of your invigorating ideas visually on one board. This app is great for creating vision boards, vacation planning, to-do lists, etc. Corkulous is very easy to use. You can select the type of item you’re adding by opening up the virtual set of drawers at the bottom of the screen. You can imbed corkboards within another corkboard. You can export PDFs of your whole corkboard. Or take screenshots and save them to your Photo Library. You can resize a post-it note so that it can hold a lot of text. Its super easy to select, move or edit items. It also allows you to search the content in your corkboards. There are two versions of this app, paid and free. With the free version you are limited to one board that you can modify. This version also allows you to connect with your drop box account and view boards created by other Corkulous users. The paid $4.99 version allows you the same features as the free addiction with a few added bonuses which include: nested boards (boards inside boards), iCloud Support, Drop Box Support, Board Templates, Passcode Lock, and Export/import Files. Overall, Corkulous is a great convenient app that allows you to stay organized and ahead of the game.
