I did some (re)search and came up with the following tools below (sorted by Alexa rating). I will pick five or so and do a little test project with them to see which one works best for my situation.
As with so many things internet, it's all a matter of getting the right search terms. I used “unlimited canvas app iphone,” but then changed it to “infinite canvas app iphone.” The results are many and your decision will be based on how well you like the interface.
I played with one that appeared to be capable, easily understood for things like dragging ...

I like Trillian. It is very interoperable, integrates many different IM networks as well as having their own, and lets you connect or disconnect from each network independently.
The only thing I'm not certain of is whether it can be configured to prompt for a password when you connect. I generally protect the device and allow Trillian to keep my ...

Example: My wife will add something to the to-do list and I'll no idea what she means. I'll ...
