"I love’s like my own personal Pinterest!"
"The perfect app for adding notes to photos"
"Straightforward simplicity - it’s not just for lists"
"Deserves to live on your home screen!
"Magpie is a life-changer"


Think of Magpie as the beautiful lovechild of Apple Photos and Notes apps. Take your photos and combine them with notes, maps, prices and links. It’s a reminder and list app, but focussed entirely around the photos you take of things you want to remember. Once you start using it you’ll be saying out loud “Yes! Why has no one done this before?”

Whether you’ve found a brilliant recipe, some great architecture, an awesome gift for a friend, a beautiful accessory for your home, or anything else you can think of, you can now keep all your shiny things in one place, like any good magpie would do!

Download your 2-Week Free Trial of Magpie, and start organising your ideas and inspirations today.


Magpie comes with a 2-week free trial, giving you time to figure out how you want to use it in your day-to-day life. The Magpie free trial is honest and simple, and completely different to how others work.

Other apps automatically subscribe you after your trial period is over, unless you actively cancel during your trial. This unfairly catches a lot of people out, and that's why Magpie DOES NOT do this.

If you try Magpie and love it you can choose to purchase either a flexible monthly subscription or a lifetime purchase. If you choose not to purchase Magpie you'll still be able to view all your lists and items, but you won't be able to add any more. It’s entirely up to you. Simple.

Download and try out Magpie today, with such a fair and easy free trial, there’s no reason not to!

You can even invite your friends to collaborate on your lists together. Because Magpie uses iCloud to store all your data, you and your friends don’t need to sign up to anything - just download and start sharing your favourite lists with each other.


• Share items via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more
• Automatically backup and sync your ideas to other devices via iCloud.
• Drag and drop photos from other apps (Photos, Safari etc) right into Magpie.
• No sign-up or subscription required, Magpie works fully ‘straight out the box’.

What’s New

Version 1.5

Your favourite app just got even better:

• Better image importing
The number of images you can import at once is now limited to the resources available on your device. The result? No more crashing when trying to import more images than your phone can handle! I've also improved to experience with a realtime progress bar. Happy importing!

• General fixes and improvements
I've been doing some general housekeeping to fix some minor bugs and keep Magpie running smoothly for you.

Magpie is run by just one person. If you love Magpie and it's helping you in your day-to-day life, please consider supporting my ongoing work on the app by opening the Settings menu and either purchasing Magpie or leaving a tip in the Tip Jar.

It would also be great if you could leave a positive review in the App Store, or update an existing one. I'd really appreciate it. As an indie developer it makes a big difference. Thanks

Instant Visualization!

UPDATE: March 11, 2020
Dear One amazing Dev of this app,
Question - Feedback:

1) No way to setup folders in a text list view for iPad? (but does on iPhone) At the moment, I have to scroll down many folders to get the one I want to get to. I have lots of folders.

2) FEEDBACK: Recently viewed lists (make a top three recently viewed in ascending order) I go into several of lists.

3) FEEDBACK: Quickly rearrange/sort lists (ascend/descend) button.

4) MAYBE POSSIBLE: I Would PAY for this: Videos storage w/ simple annotation tools. Making these videos sort of like a database for quick, complex references we need.

Ability to store images and almost INSTANTLY type notes or ideas - is a no brainier.

Native photo iOS photo app makes you go through finger tapping Olympics just to set something like this up.

This is a fast, super convenient way to get to your into visualization.

I’m pretty sure in the future I’ll have suggestions for app improvements - but as it stands - this is perfect 👌

Cool idea

At first I was like, wait, would I use this? And then I thought about how, at the grocery store, I take pictures of PLU codes and then never find them again in my phone. I like to bring my own canvas bags so taking pics is the easiest way to capture the PLU. I have since found other reasons to use it, as well! It made it to my first app page on my iPhone!

Great App for Simple, Straightforward Organization of Photos and Notes

Although I use Evernote extensively, I love the straightforward simplicity and ability to do “quick and dirty” organization of photos and notes in Magpie. I use it for everything from wine notes and design ideas to shopping reminders. Thanks for a great new app!
