Facilitates writing process
Once you become familiar with the navigation (it takes just a few minutes), it is much faster / easier to create and save powerful stories in this app -- rather than in a word processing program. The secret is the built-in narrative structure. The authors of "Connection" recognized there would be a need for this tool. It is a great supplement to the book, but works on its own, too. Critical thinkers, rejoice!
good tool for academics
Great tool — forces you to distill your ideas into a clear, concise format. Coming from academia, I know many scientists and other academics who would benefit from using this.
An easy to use app. for hard-to-remember messages,ideas, pitches---great for organizing stories of all kinds to be concise and meaningful to those you want to share with.
