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.
