Popplet is a web app for visual thinking. It can be used to mind-map, brainstorm, connect ideas, collaborate, illustrate, you name it. There’s really only one catch, it’s a Flash application. Luckily, they have an iPad app for that. Each popplet can be an image, video or text blurb. Each blurb can be connected to demonstrate a relationship between ideas, points, sub points and interesting floating mental nuggets.

We’ve used it extensively for 3 years:

  • Mapping out the state of Heroik/ schematic for Heroik Media’s current efforts and challenges
  • Exploring ideas on an interactive mind-map
  • Interactive vision boards for personal development exercises
  • Create Marketing Plans

I recently gave a talk on Popplet at the Office Optional conference in San Francisco.
