I am looking for an alternative to Scapple.
More precisely, I would love a cross-platform version of Scapple able to run on both Linux and Windows, but a Linux tool would be great.
- OS: Linux (possibly Windows)
- Free: not necessarily
- Price range: no idea, depends on the quality of the tool
Scapple is not a mind map tool.
Mind maps are usually hierarchical: the root has children, which have children, which...
With Scapple, you can define nodes and link them to one/many/no other node. See screencap.
What Scapple is great at
Basically, organize your thoughts in a pinch. Double click somewhere, start typing, then in another place, then elsewhere.
When you want to link several ideas, just drag one and drop it onto the other.
It's that simple. If you need to format, of course you'll have to rummage through some menus, but I've rarely seen easier when it comes to basically organize your ideas.
What Internet suggests
The famous search engine proposes some alternatives.
I have no personal experience with any of the tools below but am interested in a review and how they compare with Scapple if anybody has.
