Do you have FTP storage? You can then use this to store and load ideas via a single in app purchase.


You can export or share a .zip file that will include all your ideas (or a single idea) and picture and audio files.
As an alternative you can simply export a text file.


You can also import these ideas. This enables you to share a single idea with someone, or for instance move all your ideas to a new device.

Since you can create question sets the other device might not have, answers to those questions will become notes.

In this blog post I explain importing screen by screen:


At the moment there is no a real time sync feature or web based interface. The main reason is that I only want to enable this feature if I'm sure I can do it right. It has to be robust and safe. I have not yet had the time to fully learn these skills, so for now the next best thing is the export & import feature.


The app does not come with password protection. If you want to lock you app for others who have access to your device you can try out app locker apps:


Everything you write is stored only on your device and will always be yours.
This application uses Google Analytics to anonymously track usage.

Have fun and let your ideas grow!

An easy and straightforward way to get your ideas down with no strings attached, can easily recommend. The only thing that would take this to new heights for me is if you were allowed multiple pictures per note instead of just one for reference sake.

I should have submitted a testimonial a couple years ago. Ideagrowr, stands right up there with developing ones skill at Mindmapping. I can admit that mental models seem a bit beyond my reach, yet I do tremendously well at isolating and then expanding on almost any topic, whenever I choose to simply begin with a plan paper mindmap. I have been doing it for years, as I have designed hundreds of plain paper mindmaps! Yet, here's the thing! My other go to Brainstorming tool is ideagrowr!!!

Great app. Found a bug and would suggest something. I made a few ideas, but on one particular idea it wouldn't remove some of the questions even when i told it not to show them. On others it updated successfully. I did think it would be nice to show all sound files at the top by the Notes section... And all cropped images... So you can listen and view them all in one go (without entering View All)

Thanks for the feedback. A 'media only' feature seems doable. Are you composig a story? If so, you would presumably also want to control the order of these notes? I've thought about a story/presentation view before. Perhaps mail me to further explain. For now you could write a tag on each such note, and search (filter) on it.
