Grid by Binary Thumb is a new grid-based productivity app for iOS. And I do mean “grid-based.”
You see, Grid lets you work with grids of presumably numberless tiles in order to create notes, lists, collages, and just about anything you can imagine. That is, anything you can imagine within the bounds of Grid’s Maestro.
As elegantly put by Binary Thumb, Maestro is “a special set of moves that gives you mastery over the space and contents of your Grid.”
When you tap a tile in Grid, a circle appears. Drag this circle up to access the Maestro menu, which lets you put things like notes, pictures, people, and places into your Grid.

Here are some tips from Binary Thumb on using Grid:
- Press and hold to move tiles around
- Double tap to preview or get more details on a tile
- Create lists, tables, collages and more!
- Keep track of recipes, quotes, grocery lists
- Keep notes, storyboard ideas, create presentations
Another thing you should try with Grid is collaboration, since Grid lets you connect with others’ Grids, so to speak, in order to come up with better ideas — or just crazier collages.
