Stumped for an idea? Let the Idea Generator™ be your muse!

From the masterminds at The Directors Bureau Special Projects comes an application that can cure any creative block. The Idea Generator randomly combines three words together, allowing chance to foster ingenuity.

Shake the phone or stroke the screen to produce concepts ready for your creative execution.

With the Idea Generator™, the possibilities are endless. The application is fully customizable, so you can adapt it to work specifically for your own creative tasks.

Only speak Esperanto? You can manually change the word lists to be your language of choice.
"The user interface of the Idea Generator is a marvel of elegance and simplicity, and it’s fun to use."

Here's an idea


Fix the crash bug. I'm a legacy owner, having purchased way back on my iPhone 3 when IG first released. It's never been stable on iPhone 4 and with the 4s is completely unusable.
It was a wonderful app when it worked. It got me through a lot of creative sticky spots.
Please fix it guys.

So Much Potential for Designers


I would use this app daily if it only had two things:
1. the ability to add entire lists of words and separate them into categories.
2. save the apps lists to iCloud in case something happens to the app and it has to be reinstalled.

But, as of now, I don't really use this app since it has had some crashing issues and I've had to reinstall it twice and lost my words.

It's a shame this hasn't been given the attention it deserves from the developers.

It has promise


An interesting concept. Very useful to come up with creative sketch ideas. If it had a few more features like saving in a list form, possibility limiting categories, or even themes it would be great.
