Those of us who reside in the former category love to think visually; we dream in color and stereo surround sound, and we love Apple’s gadgets because they’re so, well visual, intuitive, and creative. Just like us. If you’re in the latter group, here’s how to think different, iPhone and iPad style.
Digital Ink That Flows
Critics decry the iPad and iPhone as content consumption devices. They’re not good for doing actual work, you know. For that you need a spreadsheet and a Windows PC and complexity and headache medicine.
Bah humbug. Add InkFlow to your iPhone or iPad and you’ll be on the path to thinking different. How so? Inkflow helps you to think.
Think of Inkflow as a small, digital, always mobile, always available miniature white board, complete with markers and colors and eraser.
Write, sketch, setup up work flows, flow charts, create drawings, capture inspiration, and build the next great idea for a company, sans the napkin.
Inkflow is a digital white board on your iPhone or iPad.
There’s not much to learn to master Inkflow. Your finger is the pen or marker. Draw, write, link, drop in photos.
All this is free. Almost.
Think of what you can do with a portable, always ready, nearly infinite-sized white board?
Drop in boxes and photos, choose from different paper backgrounds, change fonts, zoom and pan, draw with or without a stylus (your finger is a natural stylus).
Boxes and photos can be resized onscreen. Inkflow exports your creation to PDF, high-resolution JPG, and, of course, anything can be shared via Twitter, Mail, or other iOS apps.
Inkwell is free. Almost. The almost part is that it’s limited to 20 pages in each book, and you get only five fonts.
More pages, and more fonts, as wells as different brush tools, image manipulation options, more backgrounds and a few dozen more fonts in is Inkflow Plus, and that costs a few bucks.
But, hey. What’s the price of creative genius, you know? It’s a digital whiteboard in your hand. That’s worth something.
