    Nice popplet!

    tallislab:

    Popplet looks like a very simple and accessible tool for mindmapping.

     
  3. So, after a long wait for iTunes approval, Popplet full is now up on iTunes (click on link above). A couple of quick notes about this version:

    1. Multiple Popplet Boards: This is was far and away the most requested feature by our users after they tried out the Lite version. 

    2. Emailing: This version includes an share via email button, which takes a screengrab, which you can email to anyone.

    3. 100 Popple Boxes: In this version you can now have up to 100 image popple boxes, where the Lite version had a limit of 20.

    4. Porting from Lite: Due to security concerns, sadly iPad apps cannot pull data from other apps (even from our own!). We’ve been trying to figure out a workaround, but decided it would be better to get multiple Popplet boards in the hands of everyone, rather than wait on figuring out how to save the one Lite board. We’re still hoping for a fix though and will keep everyone updated on this!

    Lastly, a brief note about the iPad version and the web version. As of now, these two clients are not synced up, but we hope to be able to turn this feature on in an update cycle or two. We want to make sure it’s a smooth experience for everyone. We also know that for those of you that have web beta invites you cannot access popplet.com, due to Flash restrictions. This is why we are working hard to create a native iPad client AND a web client. We’re really excited about the ability to touch and move thoughts, images, information and inspiration around gesturally and are invested in making this fun and useful on both platforms (not to mention some others).

    Thanks!
