Geeeeennnnnnaaaaaa ,

Has potential, needs improvement.

Would not buy again...
You can't delete any of the ideas you create. They give you the option to categorize but ideas show up in colors of different categories, making it very unorganized. This is also created very specifically for business ideas but I feel like the app could easily be made more flexible so that the user could also add in ideas useful for personal life. I hope the app created takes these as suggestions and also considers adding an optional function that connects to ones calendar to remind the user of ideas at the time the user chooses. The previously stated idea would be very helpful at many times for example, 30 minutes before a business meeting with your partners.

Must Have

This app really understands the knock between design purpose and user experience . Great app , after being disappointed by elevatr this is a life saver . Doesn't matter if you a student or an entrepreneur , this is handy for the whole scale .
Great app must give it a shot . The only thing I would want is the dots to be more intuitive and in a better design rest , not much needed . Thank you to the developers .

Good "Blank Slate", But...

This app has good visual design and is a nice "blank slate" for adding your business ideas. However, it is very similar to other idea list apps, not any differentiation, and would be nice if this one stood out more in some useful way. Perhaps have it walk a user through the different things to add, or give suggestions and advice, or offer a way to share/message ideas with others in-app so you can get feedback.
