A comprehensive personal content management assistant designed to help you organize notes, ideas and plans, establish correlations between items, and more.
Organizing notes in a visual manner can help you keep track of ideas, find correlations between different entries, develop coherent plans, and so on.
Tinderbox is a macOS app that can help you store notes in map form, generate timelines, and share them as HTML files when you are done.
Quick to install personal assistant that enables you to organize notes in a visual manner
In the Tinderbox main window, you can have multiple tabs opened at the same time. By default, the window contains two tabs featuring different visualization modes for the same project: in the Map tab you get to organize new entries any way you like, while in the Outline area you get to preview the notes in a hierarchical manner and rearrange them.
However, via the Tinderbox View menu, you can easily choose to enable any of the supported viewing modes: map, outline, chart, timeline, roadmap, attribute browser, text window, or links browser.
The Tinderbox application also allows you to switch back and forth through a single click, so you can quickly toggle between views.
Versatile but challenging note management solution
Finding your way around Tinderbox is not precisely intuitive, so you might want to explore the user interface and learn how to use different functions properly: the included Help document does not provide much information, but the developers offer to download the Tinderbox manual.
Content management application designed to work with personal notes
The developer also provides a book called “The Tinderbox Way”, that can help you find new ways to use the application, and various tutorials (these are available as commercial products).
To conclude, Tinderbox is designed to help you create notes and organize information, generate project plans, develop new ideas, and so on.
Unfortunately, Tinderbox’s workflow is not very intuitive and this makes it have quite a steep learning curve seeing that you might have a hard time learning how to use it properly.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Tinderbox for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
