Yeah, but I'll tell you what, if you're trying to plan a book or an article or a project plan, it works like a charm.

Here's an example from my book planning for the Everything Homebrewing Book

Funny how others constantly try to show up Apple, while Apple users just smile and nod.

Yup. I keep giving the others a shot (kindle fire, for instance. It sucked) but I keep coming back to Apple. And the high def on the iPad 3 is truly stunning. This thing is a work of art. Not perfect, there are a few maddening aspects. But definitely awesome.

How is it any different than a basic outline?

You poor kids and your ipads . Droid baby! Droid!

meh, got a win7 laptop, an ubuntu server, a macbook, an iphone and a kindle fire. I'm pretty well meh on the whole OS differences. (except I do have to give Apple one thing - their iron grip vertical integration mode allows them to enforce a generally less hassling user experience at the cost of price and flexibility)

what language are you people conversating (yes that is now a real word and i promised i would use it in conversation) in?

Pretty slick Doc!  You should chime in on the song title game thread.

(conversing has been decomissioned?)

Another vote for Evernote.  There may be better apps for note taking/keeping track of things as they come up but I haven't seen one.

I just downloaded the Evernote app. It seems to be easy to use and versatile. I needed something like this.  Thanks for the recommendation Drew.

i did chime in.  back in black by ac-dc. , i don't know about the loss of conversing but funny about conversating.  my wife always records judge judy who always corrected people who used the word conversating.  then one day she started laughing when someone used it.  her bayliff (sp?) looked at her funny and she said she had just been notified that it was now added to the dictionary.

we have i phones and got wife new ipad 3 for mother's day (score for daddy) but everything else is windows.  like them all

I kept the more odd stuff out of there like subnodes, links, icons and circular references. Some of those braches goes layers and layers deep.

But one of the things that makes it truly powerful is just the ability to quickly drop thoughts in a semi-organized way and then turn around, pick them up, move them and understand the flow.

I'm actually fairly pleased at how close the book turned out to the map and the pre-planning saved me a ton of work and let me write what I was feeling like without worrying that I was forgetting something.

This is what bar napkins are for.

Only problem is bar napkins have a bad tendency to dissolve!
