Zengobi Announces Curio 2.1
Curio Invites You to Think Outside the Box!
RALEIGH, NC – January 12, 2005 – Zengobi today announced Curio 2.1, the
latest version of their award-winning environment for brainstorming and
idea management. Curio 2.1 features new support for flowcharting and mind
mapping shapes for more flexible creative explorations. In addition to the
rectangle and rounded rectangle shapes offered previously, Curio’s group,
text, and asset figures can now be framed with octagons, hexagons,
trapezoids, brackets, vertical brackets, triangles, diamonds, semicircles,
ovals, and clouds. Curio 2.1 also allows figure adornments to be embedded
within the shape border; features better Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” support; and
offers additional keyboard shortcuts and printing options.
Unlike notebook-style applications, Curio’s idea spaces let users place
anything anywhere on the page, creating freeform collages of text,
outlines, checklists, images, documents, and movies. Users can easily drag
over web links, images, and content from web browsers or from Curio’s
integrated Sleuth research assistant. Support for graphic tablets and
pressure-sensitive pens allows users to sketch out their ideas when the
keyboard won’t do. Curio also includes an integrated dossier feature with
creative brief support that will help users more accurately define their
project goals. Advanced searching, archiving, and a built-in asset manager
further round out the Curio experience.
