5/1/2014 12:00:00 AM
Scrapple is an easy-to-use software tool that allows users to get ideas down quickly, then generate connections between those ideas quickly. It is one of the most easy-to-use and versatile mapping tools available, and it is currently available for both the Mac and Windows versions, as a trial version, and you can purchase the software for $14.99 for the regular version. Literature Latte, the company that also provides the writer software Scrivener, also has an education version available for $12.00. Some of the software's most interesting features include:
  • Ability to insert notes anywhere on the virtual page.
  • Connect notes by simply using the drag-and-drop method.
  • Create completely freeform notes.
  • Stack notes in columns for organizational purposes.
  • If you have the Scrivener software, you can drag your notes directly into that software.
  • Customize the appearance of your notes with fonts, colors and choice of border styles.
In a word, Scrapple is a writer's mind-mapping and thought-generation tool. Check out Scrapple on the Literature Latte Website. You can also download a trial version and give it a try.
