When brainstorming… it’s fun to capture the information in a creative way… having apps on my iPad always help with that… some of the {more} awesome one’s that I’ve discovered so far… I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!

iBrainstorm

Why I love it: This is the newest member to my app family… but I love how I’m using the concept of virtual sticky’s to capture and organise my thoughts… I can also draw around the image… and I’m intrigued to see how the collaboration aspect works!

The Challenges: I could do with more options – like being able to change font size, and the quality/size of the image I export {it gets a little blurry}, and it’s weird that I can’t duplicate sticky’s / brainstorm boards… but I’m hoping that these will all come with their next upgrade!

Penultimate

Why I love it: Firstly… it’s a evernote baby… so I love how it sync’s with all the evernote apps {including skitch}. If I’m wanting to capture my ideas in a written format, then this is my virtual notebook… draw, write, add images… the options are endless… and being able to export notebooks that are stored in evernote… all my ideas are kept in one safe space.

The Challenges: I can’t add typed notes… you know, for when I feel like being somewhat more organised / structured in my note taking…

iMindMap HD

Why I liked it: when I captured handwritten notes – I found that a mind map kept all my info on one page… concise, and more fun to look at… so when I went searching for apps – I was drawn to the pretty-ness of it – and liked that it wasn’t as boring as some of the other mindmap apps I downloaded…

The Challenges: I would have liked it to be exported as a pdf… but it does have an option to save it to their iMindMap Cloud or image – but because I was using their free option – I couldn’t save it at all ;(

MindGenius

 

Why I liked it: The clean and simple lines of the mindmap… nice logical look and feel.

The Challenges: Again… can’t export it – so I must be honest… I stopped working with it.
