Introduction

Ideas are for keeping, if you let them slip your mind, they are gone forever. But they can also be suffocating; having all of them together makes it hard to focus. IdeaBoard allows you to sort and categorise all your ideas into manageable chunks and access them from anywhere. In IdeaBoard, there is no need to worry about saving - everything you do in IdeaBoard is automatically saved automatically. Watch our video to see how IdeaBoard works.
