Visual, Be Creative, and Manage the Information

The iMindQ app can be helpful on so many different levels as it allows and encourages you to visualize, be creative, be thoughtful, and then organize all this information into a user-friendly format. Think of this as your own virtual white board that you can you can fill up with your ideas and thoughts. Your "white board" is actually called a map in this app and you are given 30 different styles to choose from. Start by naming your map then you can start to fill it up with thoughts and ideas. The app allows you to copy/paste, undo/redo, create topics and then subtopics, and even save your map as an image. Not to worry this app offers auto-save so you don't risk losing any important information.

The app supports Dropbox integration, you can print them, and even clone them and make a template out of your existing one. The tools actually get pretty complex and allow you to do some rather advanced things such as inserting boundaries, create relationships between topics, group familiar maps, and so much more.
