Ratings and Reviews

Needs an Update


Inspiration is out of date (and development may be abandoned). Purchased version 9.2.2 (which is years old) and am running it on OS 10.13.6. Get message that the app isn’t optimized for my OS (e.g. It’s missing features like split screen). Asked Inspiration Support if an update is in the works. They didn’t reply. WAIT FOR AN UPDATE before purchasing.

The best of the mind mappers I have found on the App store so far. Downside is that it does not import standard mind mapper/outliner formats. Also, there is a bug that makes is hard to create new files.

Good software but freezes

Really easy to create diagrams.
But save frequently because it freezes often during your work.
