PCMAG appscout.pcmag.com – MagicalPad Review – by Terrance Gaines @BrothaTech on October 28th, 2011
MagicalPad was designed with business execs in mind, but anybody with a lust for high-level note/idea organization will appreciate the app’s ability to organize information in any way that they choose.
The emphasis is the app’s ability to structure any notes you’ve taken quickly and anywhere on one workspace by dragging and dropping individual notes/sections sections into larger sections.

148apps.com – MagicalPad Review – by Greg Dawson on October 7th, 2011
I run my business out of my home and find myself searching for get things done, task management and organizational apps a lot.

While I’m a big fan of Orchestra for its ability to assign tasks as an individual or within a group, MagicalPad has given me a platform to create the necessary to-do lists as well as organize my thoughts, outlines and go beyond single tasks.

webhostmagazine.com – Editors’ Choice Award for October 2011
MagicalPad is both a note taking, project developing, collaboration, jumble of an app. While some may want an application strictly for note taking, MagicalPad treats note taking as a stepping stone towards actual document creation. MagicalPad aims to allow its user the ability to produce finished works with the addition of information mapping. MagicalPad can create brainstorm diagrams, hierarchal lists, data drill downs, and other styles. These can then be shared via email. If MagicalPad was to be summed up in a single word it would be structured. MagicalPad can take simple notes and musings and turn even those idle scratchings into an organized document

For those who want an application that does more than just take notes there is MagicalPad and for that MagicalPad receives an Editors’ Choice Award for October 2011… Read more
