Theory.io Launches Projectbook Information Organizer for iPad

| Product News

Theory.io launched a new app for iPad called Projectbook this week. The app is a note-taker and to-do manager that also includes drawing tools and the ability to intelligently organize your information. The company plans to bring out Mac, iPhone, and Windows versions of the app that will include the ability to sync the data between all your devices.

In addition to note-taking abilities, Projectbook can also store Word documents, PDFs, sketches and photos, as well as Web clips. The company will release extensions for Safari, Firefox, and Chrome on the Mac this fall that will allow users to send Web clips directly to Projectbook. Users can also email information directly to the app.

In addition to its information storage abilities, Projectbook also includes natural language technology that will automatically find all notes and documents about a particular subject. Users can also create their own folders based on words or phrases that then automatically collect related information based on those criteria.

When working with text, Projectbook includes the ability to change fonts and font color, format the text, and apply outline organization to it. Text and images can be mixed together, as well.

Lastly, Projectbook includes to-do features based on the Getting Things Done system (GTD). Using the above-mentioned natural language technology in the app, users can create to-dos on the fly, or email them directly to the app from outside. Notes and documents can also be attached to any task.
