I’m a big iPad user. One of the reasons I purchased my iPad was so that I could use it as a digital sketchbook/notebook. This allows me to be more creative without having to lug around a sketchbook a ton of art supplies in order to get my ideas down on paper. Because of this, I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting art based apps and sketchbook apps.
Today, while browsing the I Started Something blog, I came across an article for an app called Clibe. What caught my eye about this particular app is that it was being compared to Microsoft’s now dead project, Courier. I had always been fascinated with the idea of Courier because of the whole digital notebook/sketchbook approach to it. With the death of Courier, the iPad became my creative, digital companion.
With Clibe, it takes one of the ideas of Courier, and runs with it. Clibe is basically a digital journal. You can create as many journals as you’d like and each can be filled with text, drawings, and images. What makes Clibe different from other notebook apps is that each of these journals are instantly sharable and able to be collaborated on. It’s a very neat concept and the execution of it is just beautiful.
I recommend checking out the Clibe website here for more detailed information and then immediately download the app from the App Store here. The app is free in the App store, but only for a limited time.
