Are you prone to brainslaps? If you are, then the newly updated Dunno is just what you need.
What’s that? You have no idea what brainslaps are? Let Dunno developer spacestation6 enlighten you: Brainslaps are instances “when something in your brain clicks and you become aware of something you want to know or learn more about.”
I get hit by brainslaps often. For example, while talking and walking with a friend, I might get struck by the idea of delving deeper into the latest iPad mini rumor later on. Or while waiting for a feature film to come on in a theater, I might get interested by one or two of the trailers.
Dunno lets me take note of such brainslaps. On top of that, it does the job of searching the Web for them on its own while I attend to my friend, my film, or some other engagement.
Released last April, Dunno has just received a new update that makes using the app more conducive to keeping you in the know.

Dubbed “Mercury 7,” the update adds the ability to mark search results, from which a “Dunno” can be created. A Dunno includes only the items that you deem relevant to your brainslap topic.
Don’t worry about marking results cautiously, since you can edit Dunnos to include other results or exclude the ones you’ve already marked.
Likewise, don’t worry about creating and editing Dunnos on one of your iDevices and having to do everything again on the others. Since the app is universal and is tied to your Dunno account, your notes are synced across your iPhones and iPads. There’s also a Mac version of the app, so Dunno has got you covered on the desktop or laptop front as well.
Also featuring new results and image browser interfaces, Dunno for iPhone and iPad is available in the App Store for free.
