Great potential


The reason I like Popplet is for the great potential to have a mapping app that is as visual as it is textual. As maps themselves are visual, it makes a lot of sense to make it as easy as possible to connect visual ideas. Pictures can speak a thousand words, so this app can save a lot time and effort to craft storyboards or anything else your visual imagination can pull together. I also like Popplet's interface. Not too complex but quickly and intuitively gives me necessary choices.

I use mind mapping for everything from planning speeches to writing articles and even sometimes for just planning out conversations or interviews. On my Mac, I use Novamind and even have one map that if printed out, would be over 160 pages. So the point is, I like mind mapping programs and know how to use them. They're everyday tools for me.

Right now, I think the iPad (and most of its apps) is more of a toy than a tool. Popplet is on my short list of apps that I'm really looking forward to an updated versions that can make this a serious tool for writers, artists and other creative types.

Page one app!

This is one of those applications that, for me, works the way I think it should and want it to. My primary use is for to do list because I can link related items in chains and assign colors to indicate priority. I also use it to take notes and make plans for projects using maps. It's great in project planning meetings. It's one of those apps that makes you really appreciate the benefits of the iPad interface. It takes no time to understand the principles and feel like a pro. I had a couple of questions for the developer and heard back from them hours later with not only answers but a great explanation of what is in development. I can't wait for the full version. It's evident Jared and his team really care about and create a great user experience. Like I said, even though it's a lite version, it has already made it to the top of my home page and along with Penultimate, is what I use to impress my Windows coworkers who think the iPad is like a tablet PC.

Beauty in simplicity


This is my first mind mapping app, as I've historically only used list-type apps. I love the visual experience that mind-mapping apps allow for, and this one has the extra-added benefit of being very aesthetically pleasing from a design perspective. The interface is extremely intuitive, and the ability to manipulate the orientation of the popplets with such ease shows that a considerable amount of thought went into maximizing the iPad user experience.

The one thing I think would really add to the interface functionality would be the ability to select multiple popplets and move them all at once, similar to other process-mapping type applications. Once that can be done, this app would be perfect! But even then, it's so well executed that I have given it five stars.
