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!

BRAINSTORM IDEAS
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!

GET ORGANIZED
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.

Just what I needed

@gilly1965

I have been using inspiration for 24 years. As you might guess it's my favorite tool for concept mapping and for mind mapping. I've been waiting for an iPhone version and I'm very happy with your new offering. I need about 15 minutes to figure out the software on the phone.

The more I use the app the better I like it.

Blended Visual Learning with InspMaps Ver#2.1

EarthSea-Keeper

Beta testing Inspiration Software mind mapping products since 1992 due to interoperability between Mac & PC microcomputers:

This iPad2 iOS 9 version still meets my high expectations for integrity, reliability & usability. It interfaces well with desktop products plus WebspirationPRO cloud computing.

New personal templates empower higher education teaching & learning by enhancing blended visual learning anticipatory thinking.

During my ongoing Adult Lifelong Learning (ALLWinWin) experiences, prior versions of this versatile mind-mapping toolkit have been in my Eco-Futurist (UI) software portfolio.

Can’t export to edit to Google Docs

Eatmorecandy

The whole incentive to upgrade was to export the outline so it could be finished in an editor. The iPad editor I use is Docs. There is no way to open and edit a .txt file from this app in Docs. Really infuriating. Docs is hardly an obscure app. Had high hopes for my son using for school too but their whole setup is also Google-based...
