[prMac.com] Minneapolis, Minnesota - Theory.io, a productivity software company working in stealth mode for the past year, announces its first app, ProjectbookTM. A notebook and to-do manager for the iPad(R), Projectbook keeps you organized even if you don't have time to organize. Projectbook holds notes, to-do lists, Word docs, PDFs, web clips, sketches, photos, manages task, projects, reminders, and automatically links related information so anything can be found without creating tags, folders, keywords, or an Internet connection. Normally priced at $6.99 (USD), Projectbook is available in the App Store from today through August 15, 2012 at a special introductory price of $1.99.
Projectbook uses natural language technology to "understand" content of collected notes, web clips, Word docs, PDF's, and tasks transforming static notebook pages into "active" links automatically, making finding content easy as tapping a link.
* Projectbook links key words in notes, like links on web pages, letting users navigate between related notes, documents and to-dos
* "Similar Notes" button finds everything in Projectbook by subject, without having to create tags or folders
* "Related Notes" folder collects all Projectbook files related to those already in any folder or tag
* "Active Folders" files notes and documents automatically based on words and phrases
Users can also organize files manually by folders, tags, or dates, and find notes and documents through Projectbook's live search, which updates results instantly with each character entered.
In Projectbook, its easy to combine files and information together on a page, and format text in multiple fonts, outlines, bullets, checkboxes, sketches, images, audio recordings, handwriting, and to-do lists. Generate meeting notes, action lists, reports, and other documents in an instant and email PDF and HTML files of any of these pages with just a tap without leaving the app.
Unlike most note-taking apps, Projectbook integrates an intuitive to-do manager with GTD(R) features that manages priorities with the information needed to get them done. In the to-do manager, create multi-level projects, set repeating to-dos, assign others tasks, organize to-dos in any order, and categorize tasks by tags or people. To-dos can be created while taking notes with just a by tap the "Make To-do" button, and tasks are emailed directly to Projectbook's to-do list. Notes and documents can be attached to any task so users can move between to-dos, notes, and documents without switching apps.
Projectbook, a native iPad application, with Internet enabled features previously available only in apps that store data in the cloud. Many cloud apps are rendered useless without Internet connections, endure server downtime, forcing users to give up control over their information to subscription services, Projectbook stores information in the app and on the iPad, where its always available, relying on the cloud only for backup and synchronization. Projectbook users can email notes and to-dos into notebook, clip web pages from Safari(R), Chrome(R), and Firefox(R) on computers, import web pages from Instapaper(R) and Pocket(R) on any device, import documents from Dropbox(R), and synchronize entire notebooks across devices automatically.
"Projectbook was born from frustration with cloud-reliant apps crippling my productivity too many times," said Peter Tamte, president, Theory.io. "Mobile Internet access can be, unreliable, and expensive. Cloud servers go down, and I don't want to worry about paying big subscription fees someday to get my notes back. With Projectbook, I can always find exactly the right notes, documents, web clips, sketches and to-do lists wherever I go, even when I forget to tag, file or lose an Internet connection."
