There's just something about a new calendar that makes us want to better ourselves. Every January 1, we set a series of seemingly attainable goals that we have every intention of keeping — but by the time spring rolls around, we've either forgotten, procrastinated, or just plain given up. But with the help of a few strategic apps, this year you can resolve to break that trend. Here are 10 such options that’ll help you stay on track in 2014.
Billed as a “modern creativity tool,” Curator is a virtual, iPad-only notebook for organizing websites, images, or text into beautiful, visually rich checkerboards. Up to 25 tiles can be opened full-screen or relocated anywhere on the screen (using just a finger) into a single board. The free app can be used to create up to five such projects, each with a unique name, and move between them with a swipe. Create a sixth board, however, and you’ll be prompted to pony up $6.99 via in-app purchase, which enables you to create an unlimited number of boards.
Both the iPad and iPhone are fantastic devices for displaying images. Whether you're flipping through the pages of digital magazines or simply browsing photo-heavy websites, no devices are better for putting a little visual pop in the palm of your hands. These 10 apps take great advantage of the beautiful screens of iOS devices to bring a potentially much-needed pinch of inspiration to all you visual artists out there. From interior design and painting to web design and photography, there's something for every artist in these apps.
