* Rhoada’s Review I love it!!! Helped me out a bunch for a presentation!
* Great App for Roleplaying I’ve moved from hand index cards to this application to store and keep track of the different plots lines that are running in my roleplaying games. [...] Great customer service.
* Teaching Aid. A very novel idea for those of us that just like to lay things out on the floor and then study the flow of how our plan will unfold.
* Exactly what I wanted This app is a must for every screenwriter and novelist... it looks complex but easy to learn and manipulate... what more can I say but kudos to the developers. [CardBoard Novels Add-On]

Take your Notes with CardBoard

CardBoard is a powerful app for creating index cards. You can arrange your cards on multiple layouts. It is even possible to use every card in more than one layout.

Possible uses for CardBoard:
- Taking notes
- Brainstorming
- Organizing ideas
- Learning

Top features
- Create cards and card types
- Arrange cards in flexible layouts
- Auto-layout (alphabetical, by card type)
- Auto-numbering

What else can you do with CardBoard?
- Plan your live
- Manage your todos
- Plan your project
- Plan your book (textbook or novel)
- Organize your screenwriting/scriptwriting
- Simply setup databases, e.g. for your collections

CardBoard uses minimum sytem rights, just storing on your device or SD card and vibration. Full standalone. No ads, no internet security issues. Just you and your Android device.

Best device for CardBoard is a tablet, but CardBoard works with multiple resolutions. The only limits are screen size, performance, and memory of your device. Card layout size can be 500x500 cards. It is recommended to use CardBoard on Android 2.2 and above. You can install and run it on Anroid 2.1 and below, but performance may be disappointing.

CardBoard - your application for index cards (similar to the good old fashioned 5x3 or 7x5 cards). Or use CardBoard as your flash card organizer.

Well over 100 downloads now

By the way: What is a good "conversion rate"? Currently, about 50% of downloads are active users.:confused:

I tried it on my Vizio tablet (Honeycomb 3.2.1) and I get a NullPointerException. Screenshot attached.

Thank you for trying and for the info (two both of you who tried CardBoard). Was it Version 2.0? Did you try to continue anyhow and did it work then?

I believe it was the most recent version, and I did continue after the error notification. It displayed file icons, and then stopped.

This was installed on my Viewsonic G tablet with HoneyComb ROM revision; although I don't think that made a difference.

Fixed that stupid bug

Morale of the story: One should always try installation on a new and clean system, not only on "used" (emulator) devices where the app had been run before...

Version 2.0.1 without that bug will appear in Google Play soon. Unfortunately the apk is too big to upload it here too, so please allow for the usual Google Play latency until it appears...

Tried your app again and now I get a screen with a bunch of buttons and a cardboard backdrop. Screen capture attached. On my tablet, a Visio VTAB, which is a bit slow, your APP was really slow. It took about 25 seconds to load the screen( the 2nd time). I probably was doing something wrong, but I couldn't get it to edit a note at all. I wouldn't worry a lot about the speed, as I said, my tablet is on the slow side!!

Do the buttons "Quick New Card" or "New Card(s)" work?

Regarding Start-Up-Speed, I'm aware this needs some improvement, but 25 seconds I did'nt even encounter on the Emulator, which is really slow. I think I need to do some profiling and tuning here.

Starting speed improved

Now, by introducing a lazy loading mechanism for layouts, the starting speed of CardBoard should have signficantly improved, especially for every start after the first one. Version 2.1 should be visible in the market, soon.

Besides, @dagnabitboy: I'd really like to help you with the issue that you can't edit cards, so I need to know if something is wrong with the buttons.

And, some good news: Erel put CardBoard into the B4A showcase, thank you for that. It is above 200 downloads now, and the conversion rate (percentage of active devices) is improving.

Sorry taking so long getting back to you! Cardboard now takes 19 seconds to load on my Visio tablet, so you're headed in the right direction! I was able to create and edit a card, so it seems to be working! that part works quickly like I'd expect.

Well, 19 seconds still does not sound very good... Is this only the first load, when creating the Default database or always?
Btw: How is moving around the screen, e.g. the Help layout? Acceptable performance?

Thank you to dagnabitboy

We had some pm's on CradBoard and recently Iread from him that performance improved after update of his tablet. Just wanted to say thank you here, too.

Besides, CardBoard is rated 4.7 now and the upcoming milestone is 400.

Version 2.3 with export of card layouts

Hi there,

just uploaded version which allows export of layouts as plain text files. Will be available after the usual Google Play delay.

Also I'm happy to announce my 600th download. Progress is slow but steady :)
