Recomendation for a sticky-note software with a "connection" function?

Asked by Mimishu1995 (20035points) October 20th, 2013

I have a bunch of ideas for my story and I need to write them down for brainstorming, since I can no longer hold them in my head (my memory is getting full, beside holding too many ideas in my head cannot help me brainstorm effectively). A Fluther member once brought forward the suggestion of writing ideas on sticky notes. I like the suggestion but I don’t want to use real sticky notes and write my ideas on them then stick them onto a wall, it’s kind of messy. I need a sticky-note software with a “connection” function (by saying “connection” I mean I can make sticky notes then connect related ideas together for easier analyzing). Do anybody here know any software like that?

Mac computers come with their own post-it-notes, called “Stickies.”

I use them all the time.

I like using Springpad. For the PC, just Google it. For iPhone and iPad, you can find it in the AppStore. It’s free. It’s great for filing away, storing for future reference, writing down ideas and to-do lists, etc. What I like about it is that the saved info is in the “cloud” (i.e., Springpad’s servers), so (1) you don’t have to remember to back it up [unless you want to], (2) you can share and invite others to cooperate on your project, (3) your data is available everywhere you go, all you need is an internet connection. But, as far as I know, it does not have the type of “connection” feature you are looking for. However, it does have additional features, such as if you save the name of a book that you are thinking of reading, it will inform you as soon as the book is on sale somewhere.

Top Notes is another app similar to Springpad.

And there’s also Evernote, Box.com, Google Docs, and Dropbox. These are all cloud-based apps with robust collaboration features. You and your colleague can be working on the same document at the same time.
