- Unlike other brainstorming or mind-mapping software, nothing is automatically connected. I have tried similar software and that is my #1 complaint. I often don’t know what will be the center of my thoughts, and I don’t like having to organize and connect them around hierarchies–or at all, in the beginning. With Scapple, it’s all free-form until I decide I want to join them by stacking them or drawing lines or arrows between them.
- It is infinitely expandable.
- Moving notes around is incredibly easy, as is re-sizing, coloring and deleting, besides a bunch of other fancy things you can do with the notes, if you are inclined to play.
- When I’m done brainstorming, I can print up my notes or I can export them to Scrivener.
- I can also import things into Scapple, such as images and text. Most of what you see on the screenshot is text that I imported into Scapple from Word files.
- Scapple is simple to use. If you’re familiar with Microsoft Publisher, you already know how to use Scapple.
- It’s available for Mac users as well as PC users. I’ve found in the past that sometimes, the more artsy software (such as the latest version of Dramatica) is available only for Macs. I’m grateful to L&L for making this available to Microsoft users.
