Index Card app review: a virtual corkboard



Perhaps you've used a cork board in the past for quick notes and even if you haven't there's a high probability you're familiar with them. The Index Card app for your iPad acts as a virtual cork board that you can hang index cards on that you've written out. The app gives you a way to not just write down your thoughts and ideas but to compile and then organize them. The app is user-friendly, filled with features, and is surprisingly powerful. Of course you can also share all of your index cards, making it even more functional.
