Brainstorming and Mind Mapping with iPad

Now that you’ve got the basics covered and you’re no longer tethered to your desk, you’re going to want a way to capture all of the fabulous ideas that pop into your brain when you’re out and about, whether you’re hiking the Appalachian Trail or just lounging, iPad in hand, on your back deck. Fortunately, the iPad seems to be custom-made for brainstorming. As it’s been said before… There’s an app for that! In fact, there are several mind mapping and/or brainstorming apps that are worth checking out, even if you’re a linear-type. Here are a few apps that caught my eye:

iBrainstorm. (Free) Think of a huge corkboard with the ability to free-hand draw, stick on Post-It notes (in different colors, of course!), move, edit, and more… then you’ve got a good idea of what iBrainstorm enables. It’s perfect for visual thinkers who like the ability to group ideas together, freely move and edit, and send the results via email.

iBrainstorm Companion.This is the coolest collaboration brainstorming app I’ve seen. You can work with up to four folks with iPhones to brainstorm ideas via iBrainstorm and “flick” them to the iPad for compiling, saving, and sharing.

Popplet ($8.99, free “lite” version available.) This is my mindmapper of choice. I love the ability to create flow charts and linked visual representations, including photos, text, and more. The linear bubbles and automatically linked bubbles appeal to my Type-A personality. And it’s fun to change colors! Oh, of course you can email it to yourself.

Ideate. ($3.99) Ideate offers a ton of pre-designed templates, so whether you’re designing a t-shirt, writing music, or planning the big defense for your five-year-old’s basketball team, you’ve got a context to work within. You then free-hand sketch your ideas on the template, or on a blank screen, adding color, lines, text, and more. You can add clips saved from the Internet or sent via email to your iPad. And then you can share the results via email, the Ideate Flickr group, etc.

WhiteboardHD. ($4.99) Add free-form drawings or pre-made shapes and lines quickly and easily to this virtual whiteboard. Grid or lined backgrounds available, and colors and type styles add flexibility. A good basic brainstorming program.

Trout. ($1.99) If you’re an advanced visual mapper, you may quickly adore Trout. You can capture your ideas in tons of colors, add icons and images, and record audio notes to your evolving creation. Then you can export as an image or PDF.
