INSPIRO is more than an idea generator, it’s an "imagination stimulator". Using dynamic word randomization and an easily customizable vocabulary, this engaging app is always ready with fresh concepts to inspire any creative activity, game or daydream.
This useful tool can be used by teachers, artists, and actors to initiate ideas, improvisations or starting points for creative work or fun activities. Students can benefit from its endless phrase output. Lyricists can find the words for their next song. This nifty app may be the final cure for writer’s block.
INSPIRO’s elegant and minimalist design allows the words and phrases to take center-stage, giving the user the space to be inspired and focused without the distraction of unnecessary graphics. INSPIRO is easy to use, utilizes simple navigation throughout its chapters and modes, and is designed to allow for endless experimentation, exploration and customization.
INSPIRO comes fully loaded with thousands of carefully selected and rated entries for all ages, but users can also create their own Custom Vocabularies. You can enter your own words and the names of friends, family, or your own characters, and they will be incorporated into the phrase engine.
Each phrase is randomly generated, so it never repeats itself. And you can easily share your inspirations with friends through email, Facebook and Twitter!
INSPIRO contains 3 chapters:
1. THE MUSE is a kaleidoscopic amalgam of basic word-forms such as Adjectives, Adverbs, Nouns, and Verbs strung together in interesting and unexpected ways. With the ability to add your favorite words to the vocabulary list and the push of a virtual button your mind will be flooded with thought provoking, bizarre, and often comedic phrases. Be prepared!
2. SCENARIOS focuses on characters and their situational interactions. This chapter is excellent for acting exercises, comedic improvisations, or playing a game of charades. Directors can find the perfect plot points for their next film. Painters and illustrators can find the subject of their next piece. No matter how you utilize this chapter you will never run out of original scenarios to incorporate into your projects.
3. THE DAYDREAM MACHINE is conceptual phrase randomization on autopilot -- meditation and intellectual stimulation all at once. Just sit back and enjoy the show. As it automatically meanders in thought and you ponder some of these concepts, you may feel the need to pause & discuss with other people. You may find yourself debating the questions put forth, or arguing against a controversial statement. In a group situation, The Daydream Machine is a great conversation starter. Use it to initiate discussions, friendly debates or collective projects.
INSPIRO can provide you with ideas for:
charades, icebreakers & team exercises graphic design
expanding your vocabulary mental imagery
In the spirit of Mad Libs, Ouija Board, Magic 8 Ball, and Magnetic Poetry and in the tradition of word randomization games and exercises INSPIRO promises to be an educational device, an entertainment tool, and above all, an excellent resource for inspiration.
What's New in Version 1.3
Hi everybody! This update brings to Inspiro one of the most useful & requested features yet: CUSTOM VOCABS!!! It's what everyone's been waiting for.
That's right! Now you can Create & Share multiple custom Vocabs, email them to friends, share them on your website for others to download, collaborate in new and exciting ways!
It's now much easier to focus on specific inspirations because you can disable Inspiro's Stock Vocab and shuffle solely your own words, phrases, and wildcards.
For example, writers can keep separate Vocabs with different Characters and Scenarios for shuffling various plot lines and story projects. Painters and poets can shuffle a Vocab with only the aesthetics they most desire and often use. Fashionistas and photographers can go wild with wardrobe and makeup possibilities.
Drink the sweet, psychedelic cocktail that results from letting Inspiro put your imaginative mind in a blender!
In the coming months, we will be releasing free Vocabs to our newsletter subscribers. Please go to InspiroApp.com to sign up!
To Our Existing Users:
Any additions, deletions, or customizations you've made to the Stock Vocab will be transferred over to your new "My Vocab" file. Enter your name and it will be displayed as the Vocab's author.
We've also reorganized the Vocab main page a bit (iPad only) and added a few more bits of subtle polish.
For those of you who enjoy saving/sharing actual screenshots of your inspiros, we've been aware for a while now that the picture orientation is stuck sideways. Unfortunately, this is an iOS glitch that is out of our hands at the moment. We'll keep everybody posted... =]
Please let us know if we're doing a good job and leave us some positive reviews!
Thanks for all your continued support! Aloha!
Save feature is a buggy creature
I have used this app since its beginning; through the updates it has gotten better. Although now the "Save" and "share" features are no longer working. Otherwise, this is still a very useful app, it just helps to be able to be able to save the inspirations
I love this app,the only problem is you have to manually add the 'a' and 'an' to the character archetypes which looks odd when you're looking at them on the list with everything else. Otherwise this app is perfect, I love that you can give each word a rating.
Needs update -- some features broken
Well, I really like the premise of this app and want to use it more, but from what I can tell the "Save" function does not work, so if I push the button my ideas are gone for good.
Fix this and it's worth five stars.
