If you're unfamiliar with mind-mapping, it's a graphing technique used to visualize the connections between different ideas or information. It works to lend structure to otherwise disconnected memories and notions, mostly because the brain works in a contextual way: your brain attaches visuals, sounds, and touch to the way you remember events. Scapple is an app that uses the concept of mind mapping to help you draw logical conclusions from your thoughts.
It's perfect for people working on business ventures, blogs or tech projects: use the app to create on-the-fly notes or delete them. But you don't have to just type out the content — you can import text files, PDF files, and pictures. You can then link those notes, pictures and more with either dashed lines, single-headed arrows or double-headed arrow lines.
From there you can organize your notes, re-shuffle them around, see all the notes at once and even zoom in and out on a section of notes. That way, you can easily see your concepts and ideas from a macro or detailed perspective, or even just create a brain dump of information before connecting the dots by interacting with your content.
Simplify your complex ideas and projects: usually, Scapple is $14.99, but you can get it now for $9.99.
