Thought Store: Written iPhone App Review
Thought Store is an app by Smoky Cat Software that provides an easy way to organize your thoughts throughout the day. Thought Store allows users to keep track of their various thoughts, ideas, and plans through photographs, sketches, and notes. Additionally, all recorded thoughts can be searched based on whom one was with, where the thought was entered into an iOS device, or when the thought occurred.
Thought Store features a way for just about anyone to keep track of their busy plans and thoughts, from taking photographs to making sketches to writing quick reminder notes. Each entry made into Thought Store is annotated by a small picture representative of the thought “type” that was entered, and this makes it easier to scroll through and find specific thoughts. Additionally, a “search” feature is available on the app that enables users to search through their thoughts to find ones that were entered at certain times or locations. Busy consumers should easily be able to find a way to implement regular use of Thought Store into their everyday lives; this app provides quick ways to stay organized while also storing thoughts so that these ideas can be used for future references if needed. Personally, I was pleased at the ease of entering in different thought types to this app; the process was streamlined enough to make taking the time to record such ideas/thoughts to be well worth it.
Appearance and Layout:
Thought Store does an excellent job of providing a clean, organized layout for organizing relatively random thoughts. Inputting in any information into this app was entirely logical and could therefore be done intuitively, with absolutely no need for a tutorial. While this app’s graphics are certainly minimal (since individual input is the main focus), the graphics that the app does feature are pleasant and well thought out. For example, small icons on the bottom of the screen represent “notes,” “thoughts,” “sketches,” “webpages,” and “photographs.” While no text is featured for these icons, the icons themselves are self-explanatory enough to justify this lack of written information.
This app currently is sold for $0.99 from the iTunes store, and I feel that this is a very reasonable price for the features available through this app. While not everyone will find Thought Store to be an essential app for their chosen iOS device, this app will certainly be appealing to consumers who are constantly finding themselves with the need to jot down ideas. Overall, Thought Store is excellently designed to please both the scattered creative and the organized businessman alike.
