The App store description of Corkulos calls it an idea board that provides a way to collect, organize, and share your ideas in a way that feels completely natural , I agree completely.

It is a multi-purpose app containing cork boards where you can place notes, labels, photos, contacts, and tasks. Group your ideas visually on one board or spread ideas out across multiple boards (sub-boards also supported). Each cork board has plenty of real estate to capture your best ideas and plans.

OmniGraffle knows what makes a diagram different from a drawing, so it knows how to help you make superior documents quickly: it keeps lines connected to shapes even when they're moved, it provides stencils full of objects for you to drag and drop, and it can magically organize diagrams so your ideas come to life.

Using simple multitouch gestures, draw shapes, drag in objects, and style everything until it's just right. Smart guides help you organize your document in a flash, and automatic layout gives you a powerful shortcut to the perfect diagram layout. When you're done, share your creations via PDF export, or open them in OmniGraffle for Mac.

OmniGraffle for the iPad is the best thing I’ve found for creating flow charts and mind maps on my iPad, it combines the best of all three off the aforementioned programs and deliver them on the iPad. Touch screen- via what is possibly the best user interface of any iPad app read that again- I said any iPad app . I wish most of the other iPad apps I use regularly were as throughtfully  designed, powerful, and easy to use as OmniGraffle.

What I like best about OmniGraffle is the way it uses Stencils. Stencils are collections of Pre-made shapes, images, and connectors to use in your documents, as shown in the figure on the left below. On the right side of this images you see the set Of Stencil libraries that come with OmniGraffle ; they include connections , Shapes, software, three-Dimensional, and several others. I’ve since added a bunch of third-party stencil sets for  other uses-  such as web flowcharts. Home-theater connections, video lighting, camera staging , and more.

Using stencil objects is a pleasure. Drag an item from a Stencil Collections onto the canvas and the object behaves just as you expect an object to behave- just as objects behave in your favourite desktop graphics applications such as photoshop, design, and so on, tap an object to select it or tap and drag to select multiple objects at once. Selected items have ‘’handles’’ on the corners and sides, just as you’d expect.


- Use built-in stencils or draw customizable shapes
- Freehand sketch directly onto your canvas
- Touch and drag to connect shapes together
- Touch "lay out now" to automatically arrange your diagram
- Smart guides help you align, rotate, and size objects
- Create multiple page ("canvas") documents

- Share native OmniGraffle documents via email, or email as a scalable PDF
- Save documents as a graphic in your Photos library

Print n Share

 If you ever have to print documents on your Mac or PC –whether locally over your Wi-Fi network or remotely over 3G or EDGE- print to share is what you need. Plus, it’s so  chock-full of other useful features that I hardly know where to start.
Print n Share is   easy to set up. First install WePrint (freely available on their website) on your MAC or PC, and then download and install Print n Share on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Simply start up the app and let it know that you have WePrint installed and connect to the same network as the desktop running it. From then on, you can print any files directly on your iPhone that can be printed from the desktop running WePrint.  
A nice touch for the app is the ability to print contact information from your Contacts section of the iPhone. Print n Share will access the information directly and provide you with several options for printing, including the much-required DYMO LabelWriter feature. This will let you print directly to the label printer. After you choose the printing template, Print n Share will pull out the information from your Contacts and set the rest up for you.
With that taking care of the Print part of Print n Share, you might wonder what about sharing? Well, the app can be easily configured to work in combination with your networked desktops, online services such as or and even sync with your MobileMe account, so you can share your documents with any of these services and have them available on the go.
Let’s start with the basics. If you have a Wi-Fi – enabled printer , setting up printing couldn’t be easier , I launched print share on my iPad and it immediately discovered both Wi-Fi printers in my house, I could print to both  within  a few seconds of launching the app for the first time.WePrint and Print n Share make up a fully integrated system to take care of any print jobs on the go. With Print n Share on your iPhone and the WePrint Server as your desktop software, you're set to go, well, actually, print.

Instapaper's critically acclaimed, award-winning iPhone app is the most popular way to read Instapaper content. View your saved pages in the mobile-optimized Text view. Instapaper is popular among subway commuters and iPod Touch owners because it stores your articles for reading even if you're offline. Save web pages for later offline reading, optimized for readability on your iPhone or iPod touch's screen. Featured by Apple and critically acclaimed by top blogs, newspapers, and magazines!

Great for long articles and blog posts that you find during the day and would like to read, but don't have the time when you find them. Save with Instapaper, then read later when you're commuting, in a meeting, or waiting in line.

Have you ever happened upon a web page with a long , interesting story you wanted to read but don’t have time? Or have you wished you could somehow stick the story in your pocket and read it during the train ride home, on the airplane, or during some other downtime? If you’ve ever wished those things, you’re going to love instapaper-an iPad app that lets you save web pages from any browser and read. Them later on your iPad , with or without an internet connection.

Use Your Handwriting

Yes, use your Handwriting is yet another to-do list organizer/ reminder type app , but it has a unique twist: you can’t type notes or even speak them. Instead, as the app name implies , when you use Use your Handwriting , your write your notes by hand ( actually by finger)  I love the way the screen scrolls automatically to allow you to write entire sentences on one line.  
Have you ever wanted to write fast, beautiful notes without having to use the popup keyboard? How about just using your finger on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s gorgeous screen?

Use Your Handwriting® (UYH) is a powerful yet simple way to organize and express yourself. Instead of typing items in, Use Your Handwriting lets you write them by hand (well, by finger) - and with its unique graphic rendering engine, makes what you write look like your actual handwriting!


No matter what your 4th grade teacher told you, you have beautiful handwriting. What you couldn’t do with a pen, you can do with UYH. Choose between five different writing styles and your calligraphy will be amazing everyone in no time.


Have you ever tried using the popup keyboard while walking? We would advise against it. With UYH, you don't necessarily have to look at your device when jotting down a quick reminder or noting a phone number. Start the app, squiggle your note, and you're done. Use the faster "Hyper-write mode" for an even speedier experience.


Use Your Handwriting welcomes new users with a tutorial that teaches you its basic functions by actually using them. Unless you decide to skip the tutorial and brave it, you are guaranteed to get off to a swift start!
