    How do Mind Mapping Tools Work?Start with a central node - oval, rectangle, etc

    Add child nodes onto that, rinse and repeatCan slide nodes aroundAdd color codesAdd LinksCollapse and expand

    Perfect for the iPadBecause these ideas come to you when you're on the moveBecause touch is a great way to add to Mind Maps

    Some apps even sync to the desktop so you can sharpen them up when you get back to the office
