Really impressive story. Non-coder learns to code to build this app, few months later has 100k downloads on the app store. Long way to go obviously, but a nice start. The founder likes to call it a mix between Evernote and Pinterest - for creatives.

The app looks slick. Have a look at the video I just added to the related links.
Beautiful app. Brought my iPad back to life just to try it

@davehariri Every now and then an app does this for me. Unfortunately, my iPad spends a lot of time in the drawers these days...

Thanks for posting! Caught us a bit off guard, we were right in the making of a teaser video for the website. It's not quite done but we posted the rough cut now. Direct link at the top of this page. Happy to answer any questions!

@danielnordh Hey Daniel, can you explain us how you got the idea?
Daniel Nordh@danielnordh · Founder, Curator & Co Ltd
@gregoiregilbert Sure, I'm writing a post about this at the moment but here's the short version. 1. I was working as an architect for the Mayor of London when I first got an iPad, not thinking I needed one. It was an epiphany, so clearly the 'modern notebook'. Bonus; it's acceptable to use an iPad during meetings, even in City Hall, not so with a laptop or mobile phone. 2. Being a visual thinker I simply wanted to see websites, images and text relating to a particular project all together. I was surprised such a basic thing was not achievable in any existing app. Content on a mobile device is so fragmented; in different apps, not to mention the cloud. I also wanted to be able to move things around, where things are in relation to other content can change it's meaning. Perhaps this came from being an architect. 3. Switching tools is especially painful on mobile. The process of collecting, organising and presenting and idea is a daily necessity for many of us and I wanted to be able to go from idea to presentation without using several apps. So that's what led to a simple grid with minimal UI where you can add content from the device or cloud sources. It was what I needed.

@danielnordh i love the concept. 1) how are you thinking about user acquisition and monetization? 2) will this help me remember the great ideas I have in the shower? :P

@eriktorenberg 1) At the moment it's been organic through the app store (we've been lucky to have been featured). There are in app purchases to unlock extra features at the moment. We are working hard on a very long to-do list of exciting features and will eventually get to a point where it could be tested for use by teams, sharing, publishing and collaboration. To be explored. 2) Feel free to bring your iPad into the shower! (your responsibility)
