Apps to make your life easier
Dave Armstrong, filmmaker based on the Isle of Man and good friend of mine introduced me to this cool new app for the Mac. It’s called SimpleMind and it allows you to ‘map out’ and edit your ideas on screen. Which in part can eliminate the need for wasting tons of paper (and ink).
The concept is so very simple, but incredibly handy. I’ve been using it for a few days now and already I can see it having a huge impact on my creative process. It speeds things up, I have a much better visual perspective to see my story develop and I can also easily share with others for collaboration.
I’m using the free version which limits some of the saving and sharing options, I’m happy with that and it’s only £21 to buy the Pro version should I want to upgrade.
Check out the video blog above for a more detailed look at the workflow using SimpleMind – I’m sure you’ll find the App of some use!!
IF YOU KNOW OF ANY SIMILAR APPS OR SOFTWARE THAT WILL HELP WITH THE CREATIVE PROCESS, ADD TO THE COMMENTS BELOW.
