Fast facts.
  • Arundo is a productivity app made for tablets. It consists of two components. It allows for handwritten input on the device and at the same time offers further "writing desk modules":
    • Browser
    • FlashCards
    • MindMaps
    • Notes
    • Calculator
    • Tasks
  • One of the traits unique about Arundo is the possibility to interlink text passages of the handwritten content with any of the modules mentioned above through the integrated ConnectionManager. This network of information makes learning and working with notes easier.
  • Combining all these modules in one app is another distinctive feature. Thereby we deliberately turn away from the commonly followed trend of producing monofunctional apps.
  • Arundo is available on the App Store for iPad since April 2014.
  • The idea for Arundo was born in 2011 when René Phan was thinking about how to improve his student learning and working. Shortly afterwards he started working on the project with his fellow students Florian Berninger and Jacob Focke.
  • The success at a German-wide economy simulation competition (EXIST-PriME-Cup) gave the motivation to start their own business and work on Arundo fulltime.
  • Starting in June 2013 the young founders are supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and the European Union through an "EXIST Business Start-up Grant".
  • More information about Arundo is available on website, facebook and twitter.
