Regardless of your profession, you’ve probably had some experience with mind-mapping. Whether you’re aware of it or not, this visual process of brainstorming can be pretty damn effective. It’s also a little disorganized, which is why we bring you this:

Meet Scapple, a freeform mind-mapping software that lets you easily record and find connections between your ideas. It’s designed to help you put all your ideas in one place, then draw logical conclusions about them. Whether you’re working on a business venture, blog, recipe, or tech project, Scapple is the tool you need to take your work to the next level.

With Scapple you’ll be able to:

  • Quickly jot down ideas to make sense of them
  • Trace lines or arrows between related ideas
  • Double click anywhere on the canvas to type
  • Move notes around and never run out of space (unlike with paper)
  • Group notes together in different shapes
  • Easily share ideas with others

Best of all, the software is on sale through the Daily Dot Store for just $9.99 (regularly $14.99) compatible with either Mac or Windows.
