Modern smartdevices let people do a lot of things. You can record speech, take down notes, and use touchscreen phones to make sketches using your finger. Over time your phone ends up storing a lot of information and everything being individually saved causes a lot of clutter. Resultantly it becomes inconvenient to find the things that you are looking for. What you need in your smartphone is a storage application that neatly organizes your projects; these projects could be anything ranging from simple notes to sketches. Then you could easily find and access that which you are looking for. Here to be that organized storage application is a tool called Boxes by Fishington Studios.
Boxes is a smartphone application for the iPad. The app is sized at nearly 90 MB and it runs on iPads that run iOS version 5.1 or later. The application gives you boxes to organize the content of your various projects. With this tool you can create pages or virtual boxes for text notes, drawings and sketches, to-do lists, audio recordings, and even maps. You can further organize these items into separate categories such as notes can be stored under “Physics Class” or “Guitar Lessons” as in the image above. Lists for tasks and reminders can be easily created and accessed.
A small box in the upper right corner of the application lets you quickly access other portions of the application. So by a simple tap on the screen you can exit your notes and access the sketches which you have organized in the Boxes application.
This iPad application is ideal for storing persona journals, various projects, class and meeting notes, and creating lists of any kind. You can get Boxes from iTunes for $2.99; there it has a current user rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.
