Your mobile device is a wonderful tool. You can record moments around you, take notes, look up pertinent information, and engage with people across the globe. In many ways, the digital revolution is defined by our mobile devices, which often become extensions of ourselves.
With this passionate outlook, we present you with ClipUp, from Peter Fischer. ClipUp is a fantastic way to organize your ideas on the iPhone and iPad. You can use this app to save ideas and are able to pin all types of media to a central board. Then, navigate this board when you want to look back at, and further refine your ideas.
For example, if you’re out and you catch a note of a great track, you can record it and post it to ClipUp. Then, maybe you screenshot a Wikipedia article on the genre of the track, and pin it next to the recording.
Now, effortlessly, you’ve started to create a collection of your ideas. That’s what ClipUp is all about! Save your notes, files, ideas and more and navigate easily whenever you please.
What we like most about ClipUp is its biggest feature, the idea board. This serves as the crux of the app and allows you to save images, videos, websites, text, audio files, and miscellaneous files directly to the center of the app.
All of these files are displayed in little squares, which help to create a balanced and approachable feel to the app as a whole.
You can drag-and-drop files wherever you need them to go, set reminders if any ideas are time-sensitive, and share your ideas via email, Social Media, and more.
The app itself was also updated this week, and prides itself on continuously improving and enhancing features.
Concept and Functionality:
This biggest parallel here is most likely Evernote. Evernote also lets you navigate between ideas big and small, and attempts to be your one stop shop for content and idea aggregation. However, ClipUp is built for visual learners and those who get a kick out of powerful images.
If you don’t like taking notes, then ClipUp should be your productivity app of choice. Generally, it runs smoothly and has a clean feel. Visually, it finds itself somewhere between Flipboard and Notepad, but finds a way to synthesize and give you the best of both worlds.
Those who are more visual, or who may have tried Evernote and Notepad, but weren’t satisfied by the approach of these apps, should definitely give this app a try. For those on the visual side of the coin, ClipUp is going to be a wonderful addition to your brainstorming and note taking rotation!
ClipUp requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
