With Inspiration Maps, you can...
BUILD DIAGRAMS & OTHER GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS WITH EASE
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.
STRENGTHEN UNDERSTANDING & BUILD RETENTION
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.

This app is really cool and was easy to use for a science prject but after working on this app for 3 hours i clicked around some buttons to try and find a save button or something and it clicked out of my project, when I clicked back into it only speech bubbles were left. Nice but a waste if time.
Last decade application - don't buy
I was using inspiration desktop app for more then 5 years. It was simple use.
Recently I bought an iPad pro. Downloaded the trail version, it was very limited. I needed to be able use my desktop version of maps in iPad and vice versa.
The description says you should be able to sync with desktop version.
To take the advantage of cloud sync i just purchased the full version.
As soon as bought the full version, i realize it was a lie. There is no way to open or sync with desktop version.
Only thing it allow is to import and export a desktop version, then you will have to save it in your platform version. The process is very cumbersome and distorts the fonts and structures. (This is how the cloud sync used to work in last decade, not in 2016).
This is the worst utilization of my money to buy an iOS app. I wish i can get my money back.
Please don't wast you money to buy this app, if you need to work on the same file using desktop and iPad.
There are better alternative available out there.
BEST mind map software on IOS
Buy the premium version for $10. Plenty of clipart to help you organize your thoughts. You can import photos too. The app automatically converts your mind map into a Roman numeral outline.
