Soliant Consulting, Inc.
Brainstorm without boundaries! Bords™ brings the natural organization of whiteboards and sticky notes to your iPad. Great for jotting down quick ideas or managing an entire project, this app is flexible and can work the way you do. Create notes on a large workspace, use the pen tool, draw objects, slide elements around, save templates, and store multiple boards to keep all your thoughts right there at your fingertips.

You can add sticky notes of ideas, to do lists, project tasks, reminders, recipes, shopping lists, and more. While not a diagramming tool, you can quickly get ideas on your iPad and play with lots of ways to organize them.

Bords is full of potential... and best of all, you'll never lose a sticky note again.
