I'm an old fan of Ember (formerly LittleSnapper) to capture quick design ideas, mainly because it was a neat software and it organised the screen captures in an easy way, but unfortunately there has been a few issues with their integration solution to selected cloud storages and the software has slowly killed itself. I was wondering if there was a similar software out there for this simple purpose?
- I found this app NoteLedge last year and for the last few months I've been using is for writing down ideas and importing various web-content in a form of videos and images - then I add notes (If necessary) as wells as sketches/drawings and the result I end up with is my idea that's been expanded with media content, sketches and occasional stickers. It's nice to see something that was an idea in your head written down, and with NoteLedge it's easy to make it look cool, and you're able to do brainstorming and mind-mapping as well - and these are great tools that help take your ideas further. All my notes stay organized and synced across my devices, so I can work on something no matter what device I have on hand and when I'm on the go.
- The other service I've used in the past, which sadly isn't cross platform, is Coggle - quick and easy to map out ideas as 'mind maps'. I find that the categorisation can be both a help and an impediment. The real thing it misses for me is to go from Capture > Detail > Doing something about it.
