This week MacSparky is sponsored by Tinderbox, the Tool for Notes. Tinderbox is a workbench for your ideas, projects, and plans. It can help you analyze and understand them today, and it will adapt to your changing needs and growing knowledge.
The thing I dig about Tinderbox is the way the canvas adapts to what you need. You can build text and graphical maps of your ideas and data that grow with your understanding.
Build relationships by arranging notes, organizing them with shape and color, and linking them. Whether you need maps, timelines, charts, or outlines Tinderbox has you covered. It lets you record ideas quickly and keep them where you’ll find them again when you need them.
Everyone’s excited about the infinite canvas app, but Tinderbox has been doing it for decades.
The Tinderbox team calls it information gardening and it’s brilliant.
And that is just the beginning. Tinderbox agents scan your notes continuously, searching for notes that meet your criteria. Tinderbox’s timeline view creates wonderful, interactive diagrams to reconstruct events and plan projects.
Best of all, with Tinderbox, your data is yours. Tinderbox files are XML, and Tinderbox can create HTML, XML, RSS, OPML, and more. Tinderbox shares notes with Simplenote, Notes, Evernote and DEVONthink.
People are doing amazing things with Tinderbox. Maybe you should too.
