Welcome to Inspiration Maps™, the intuitive and powerful visual learning app on the Mac. Build beautiful diagrams, graphic organizers, and outlines with ease! Getting organized has never been this simple.

With Inspiration Maps, you can...

Create concept maps, cause and effect diagrams, process flows, family trees and more! Getting started couldn’t be easier: Simply double tap a blank space on your canvas to create a new idea symbol. Start from scratch or from one of the many built-in templates in language arts, history, science or thinking & planning!

Harness your own creativity - there’s nothing like using Inspiration Maps’ quick-brainstorming tool RapidFire(R) to capture your ideas as fast as they come to you. Never lose track of a great idea again!

Simply drag and drop to organize and categorize concepts and ideas. Establish connections with links and connecting phrases. Structure is automatically generated for you when you use Arrange or when you view your diagram as an outline.

Use proven visual thinking and learning techniques to brainstorm ideas, explore and explain relationships, and integrate new knowledge with what you already know. Inspiration Maps encourages deeper, more critical thinking and that improves creativity, comprehension and retention.

Use visual diagrams or written outlines to take notes and add details. Inspiration Maps turns static outlines into dynamic, rich writing structures. Expand on your work in Diagram View or Outline View, then export to a writing app to complete your projects.

Your diagrams and outlines are entirely customizable - change background colors, line colors, link styles, fonts, add more! Add graphics from the built-in symbol library, the internet, or your own camera roll.

Dlighted Inspiration is back

The best mind mapping / visual thinking tool by far - and not just for educational use!

I used Inspiration for over 10 years until it was discontinued on Mac. Since then I've tried many mind mapping tools and none are as good - the others are too structured, they want you to mind-map the way they think you should.
Inspiration doesn't it lets you draw what you think.

I'm far far older than most users and even my University days are a long time ago but there has been a whole in my life. Now Inspiration is back I'm delighted.

Great mind mapping

So pleased with this App on the Macbook. I have used it on iPad for years and now I can easily open the iPad mind maps on Mac.

Very easy to use with probably too many designs for individual boxes. Just drag a line from a box to where you want and enter details in the new box which is automatically created. I would like a few more options for line design, for example a dashed line.

Excellent tool for aligning multiple boxes either horizontally or vertically. Extremely useful.

Highly recommended.
