Index Card – A Great Tool for Writers and Students

Index Card is a simple non-linear writing tool designed for use on the Apple iPad. You can organize your thoughts through the use of virtual index cards. You can also utilize different colored cards to identify and segregate different areas of your project. The program allows you to use the touch screen to reorder your cards. The beauty of this simple isytem and interface is it permits you to capture your ideas and store notes as they come to you.

You can organize the flow of your project by using a simulated corkboard interface. By pressing down on a virtual index card, you can electronically grab it on the touchscreen and drag it to a new location. This is the perfect app for screenwriters, novelists, or students. The program allows you to compile your work into a single draft document that can be read by most word processors and specialized formatting programs. The cost of $5.00 seems quite reasonable given all this program does.
