This app works in the paradigm of an Idea Space ... a black page where you develop your ideas. It includes a wide range of options to what you can insert on the Idea Space ... mind maps, images, Web links and page views, screen captures, lists, tables, drawings ... It also has meta-content management of such things as resources, tags, start/due dates, and completion status.

The desires of some folks to have more specific features (such as a wider set of mind maps or vector-drawing or spreadsheet calculations in tables or scripting or ...) aside, I believe you would be hard-pressed to find any other one single app by itself with the shear breadth of story-boarding, brainstorming, idea development, and project management features offered in Curio. All of this is packaged nicely in UI, making it easy to learn to use in an adept way.

This app is an invaluable part of my workflow. I use it to brainstorm, keep track of discussions from meetings, develop lecture content, and track the big-picture status of projects (linked via URLs to OmniFocus as well).

The developer ranks in the class of top-notch for his rapid responses to email and questions in the forums.

If this app seems in any way to fit what you think you need ... go for it! You will not regret it.

This is a good, desktop citation management tool for PDFs. As noted, it is somewhat non-Mac compliant in behavior, as might be expected of cross-platform apps. It has many features in its own right, especially the cloud-based storage of citations for collaborative or on-the-go workflow. It is rather easy to use, if somewhat encumbered by its lack of Mac-centric options for keyboard shortcuts and one-click operations.

Unfortunately, WRT on-the-go workflow, the current iPad version (1.3.4) sucks. It is basically just a glorified and buggy viewer for the PDF Mendeley files. This downfall makes on-the-go management of PDF citations via Mendeley practically worthless. If you definitely need this functionality as well, look elsewhere for the time being.
