After wasting the best part of five years trying to work with other developers to create Scrivener for iOS, I'm now doing it myself. Once that's done, I need to finish our next version of Scrivener for Mac (while our Windows developer finishes the Windows version). And then there are some updates I need to make the Mac version of Scapple. So I think an iOS version of Scapple will depend on (1) how well the iOS version of Scrivener sells and (2) whether we can find a good second Cocoa developer to come on board.

Many thanks for your interest!

All the best,
Keith


Thank you Keith for your quick answer. It is not a good one regarding the deadline, but I can live with :)
In the meantime, and having looked a lot on internet, I've finally decided to work with Realtimeboard web site. Pretty straightforward, very simple, only a few tools, and free for a limited usage. Templates are not bad too. I love the zoom function (like in Google maps, with gestures), and the "infinite" board.
I wish you all the best for your work on Scrivener, Mac, PC or iPad!!

I'm really, really craving for Scapple on iOS! I hope this will be L&L's next big goal after the success of Scrivener for iOS. Scapple is like yin to Scrivener's yang! And it will be very much at home on a mobile platform, the perfect device for brainstorming.

In the mean time: does anyone have a good alternative for Scapple on iOS?

It's not quite the same, but MindNode is the obvious recommendation.

That said, if you have an iPad and a stylus, I've actually been pretty satisfied with Paper by 53. It's more of an illustration app, but it also has some wireframing tools that can be pretty effective, if you want to use it as more of a whiteboard.

Add me to the list of people who would love to buy a version of Scapple for my iPad. :D

I would settle for a way to view an existing Scapple file from within Scrivener for iOS, as most often when I want it on the iPad, I'm writing somewhere and just needed to double-check my outline or relationship map.

While you wait for that capability, or an iOS version of Scapple... print your scapple document to PDF and import that into your project.

Scrivner seems to be doing pretty well on the iOS platform. How about it, Scapple for iOS? I really like the simplicity and functionality of Scapple, consider it a compliment that I'm nudging you on this :) .

Hi there,

Having Scapple for iOS would be a huge plus, as any of third party solutions don't allow easy sync (such as Scrivener iOs and Mac OS).
As I know what you've been through regarding the iOS version (and the result is quite awesome BTW) and also mac updates, let's hope you'll get some time to kickstart it anytime soon.
It won't make a huge difference, but rest assured that as soon it's live, I'd buy it ;)

Agreed that Scapple for iOS would be awesome and is something I would buy.

As my assumption is this is a long way off, in the meantime i have been experimenting with MindMup 2.0.

MindMup is a *very* stripped down mind mapping tool - limited in features but I have found it great for brainstorming. It does support independent nodes, which is a requirement for me. Also has a storyboarding feature, which I have yet to use but which looks interesting.

The free version saves to Google Drive. It is an extension of Google Chrome, so you need to work from the browser. It works for me on Windows & iOS, so I assume it would also work well on Mac.

Downside is you need an internet connection to use.

YMMV.
Jim

IThoughts for iOS will read. scap files natively.

Why is Mindnode the obvious choice? IThoughts reads .scap files natively, which is as close to native Scapple support on iOS as you’re going to get.

To be perfectly honest... It's because I missed the post on the previous page saying so! iThoughts sounds great! Thanks for pointing that out!

(I do still really enjoy using Paper, but iThoughts looks like something I could convert to.)
