Daily iPhone App: Corkulous brings the beloved cork board to your iOS device
There's something charming about a cork board with its simple pushpins and scraps of paper. If you don't want to mark up your wall with an unsightly brown slab of cork, then you should check out this digital alternative from Appigo. Available for the iPhone and the iPad, Corkulous Pro is filled with features that'll let you create customizable cork boards and share them with family, friends and co-workers.
Corkulous Pro does a great job mimicking the simplicity of a cork board-based organization system. The app is powerful enough that you can use it to store different types of notes, but simple enough that you don't need a degree in engineering to understand how it works. Once you figure out the icons on the tray that you use to create a note (they are not labeled), then they rest of the UI is easy to navigate.
Corkulous Pro launches to a main screen that shows you all your cork boards and their collections of notes. The app lets you add a variety of notes including images, contacts, sticky notes, checklists and even mini-cork boards. Once you add a note and fill it in, you can drag and drop it anywhere on the board. For those who are spatially challenged, the app also has handy guides that'll line up your notes in rows or columns.
You can store cork boards locally on your device, or put them in a collection that you can share via Dropbox or iCloud. You can also store private cork boards locally on your iPhone. If you don't want to use an online service to share a cork board, you can export your board as a PDF or an image and then access the documents via iTunes. You can also send the exported document via email.
Its easy note creation and sharing options make Corkulous Pro an excellent alternative to the traditional cork board. Corkulous Pro is a universal app available in the iTunes App Store for US$4.99. There's also a free version if you want to try it before you buy it.
