4.0 out of 5 stars It may inspire, but will it deliver for you?, 3 Aug 2011
This review is from: Inspiration (CD-ROM)
What impresses me about this is the ability first to download a full trial version for 30 days - try before you buy - which is often not available for software of this type. When you have done so, you will soon find whether this is for you.

It clearly works for me as I have purchased the full version. What gives some comfort about this software is that it has a pedigree and an online community of users - although these seem to be mainly educationally based.

The program probably helps teachers to provide children with experience of constructing their thoughts in a rational way and then ordering them in a logical fashion. The diagram and mapping views provide visual displays and links between main and sub-topics. The colourful nature of this probably makes learning more interestingand fun.

Information may also be input and displayed in a more traditional outline view which is not dissimilar from Word's own Outline/auto-numbering/styles etc. features, but Inspiration's version is easier to use. The diagram view or map view can be converted instantly to an Outline View and vice-versa (and back again) as the click of a button.

The program is, for me an expensive luxury - it enables me to create headings and record relevant points quickly immediately (before I forget them or my mind wanders off to other thoughts) and in a way which can be shown graphically.

What it does NOT seem to have been designed for (although no doubt someone many correct me on this) is a lengthy dissertation or novel - i.e. it is not a word processor, but an ideas vault.

That is why I am pleased that you can download the trialware version to see if it does for you what you want it to. It certainly is worth a try.
