Best mind mapping software ever!
on 14 October 2012
I was given this software for my college course, and I must admit, I am bemused as to how i have managed without it for so long!
I've used other products before at school, but I find this to be much more powerful and effective than any other product.
One of my favourite features is the RapidFire capability, where I can select a branch or topic, start typing and press ENTER and it 'fires off' a new branch in seconds with the text I just typed which is much quicker than other software where I had to click 'add branch', type, click away then do the same again for every branch I wanted to add.
For those who don't like the sound of the 'RapidFire' feature, there is a manual alternative, where you can click a branch and then click the 'Create' button to add a new branch, you can use whichever you prefer.
One excellent use I have found for the software is for creating organisational charts. I can set the arrangement of the diagram to 'Tree', switch on 'Auto Arrange' and 'RapidFire', which allow me to produce an organisational chart within minutes.
For those who have previously used the 'SmartArt' feature in Microsoft Word for this purpose as I used to do, you are missing out, as you will know that it is inconvenient to have to keep clicking buttons to arrange everything, whereas Inspiration allows me to simply type everything in using RapidFire and it arranges everything neatly.
It is impossible not to recommend this software, and in my opinion every (disabled and nondisabled) school pupil, college and uni student should have a copy!
