I felt let down at first, but not anymore..
I use Scrivener, and I always thought this would be a nice complement to it. So I finally broke down and did buy it last night, and to be honest, I felt let down. I even figured I’d ask for a reimbursement in the morning. While waiting, I figured I decided to read through the help guide. This app is so simple, I thought I wouldn’t need to at first. I was wrong. The features I thought were missing WERE there..
Turns out, this is a wonderful little tool. As simple as it first appears, it does allow for a lot of flexibility in thowing ideas down and playing with their organization afterwards.
I gave it 4 stars because I think there is one thing missing. There should be a button to press to send directly as a new Scrivener document. You can still start Scrivener, drag your ideas into it and re-arrange them there, but to be able to click a button to launch a new Scrivver with my map as text bits would be awesomer. :)
I’ve been looking for exactly this brainstorming tool for ages! The simple, open structure and easily changed links means you can jot things down as fast as you can think them, then organize and re-organize as the linkages emerge or new ideas strike you. You can made different streams of thought different colors, sizes or border-types, and bring order to chaos. Life’s complexities are rarely hierarchical!
Making Family Trees
I’ve been using Scapple to build basic family trees for a novel. I found actual genealogy software too overwrought for the level of detail require and lacking some particular features needed. Scapple solves this by being freeform while easily connecting individuals together. It makes the entire process far more organic as opposed to fill-in-the-blank.
It would be nice to have slightly more fluid movement. For example, it would nice to be able to pinch to zoom and pan at the same time. It might also be helpful to have an canvas unlimited in every direction with a “back to content” button if one becomes lost. As it is, to extend outward, you must either move everything or inch a box out to expand the canvas.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
