Ratings and Reviews
Pleasantly surprised! Perfect for notes, ideas, tasks, to-do's
Update: one bug found: text overlaps on analyze screen for ideas with similar ratings. Makes unreadable. Also text extends beyond ipad's physical screen dimensions. Can't scroll over or tilt for landscape mode. Text cut off. Fix please. Chop! Chop!
Pros: amazing, simple, powerful, stable, unique, great for nonlinear thinkers. I am moving all my notes from Awesome Notes... Several hundred... And for the first time I have a clear picture of what I need to do, what I should act on, what to save for later, etc.
Cons: Google docs or MobileMe sync/backup needed. Landscape mode needed. Assign due date to item needed (and analyze by priority/due date needed.) Universal (iPhone & iPod Touch) version needed. There is currently an iPhone version, yes... But developers don't seem to realize that iPad app buyers prefer Universal versions. Missed opportunity. Need rating when entering ideas on same screen, not subsequent screen
In sum: Love it. No functional complaints. No crashes. The developers have just made me hungry for more.
Non-Linear Thinkers Dream
I hate lists ... they annoy me, and they force me into pre-conceived notions. This application is a great start in how to look at ideas differently. Using four scales, Innovation, Uniqueness, Simplicity and Potential, as well as Category, it allows you to map out ideas and see them presented visually. I've just started playing with it and would love to be able to import my entire product roadmap list to analyze with. One other element I'd love would be if it utilized the external monitor calls so I could put this up on a screen during meetings.
Cool idea, needs work
Sales blurb says the dimensions are configurable; if that's possible within the ipad app, it's hidden pretty well. Since that was a primary feature in getting me to buy, feeling a little cheated right now.
Percentile ranking is broken. At least one star is required in each dimension to get anything to show up on the graph. Since they are 5-level ratings, this automatically starts all plottable ideas off at 20%, not 0%.
Some type of export is needed, even if only mail-a-screenshot.
Would be nice to giver the option of 10-point scales, which would declutter the plot a bit.
App has a lot of promise but needs major work at this price, relative to others.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
