Truro, United Kingdom – Literature & Latte Ltd are pleased to announce the release of Scapple, a new project planning and organisation tool for Mac OS X. Scapple is Literature & Latte’s new, easy-to-use tool for getting ideas down as quickly as possible and making connections between them. It isn’t exactly mind-mapping software–it’s more like a freeform text editor that allows you to make notes anywhere on the page and to connect them using straight dotted lines or arrows. If you’ve ever scribbled down ideas all over a piece of paper and drawn lines between related thoughts, then you already know what Scapple does.
Creating notes is as easy as double-clicking anywhere on the canvas and then typing; making connections between ideas is as painless as dragging and dropping one note onto another.
Scapple doesn’t force you to make connections, and it doesn’t expect you to start out with one central idea off of which everything else is branched. There’s no built-in hierarchy at all, in fact – in Scapple, every note is equal, so you can connect them however you like. The idea behind Scapple is simple: when you are roughing out ideas, you need complete freedom to experiment with how those ideas best fit together.
Notes can also be dragged from Scapple into Scrivener, Literature & Latte’s award winning content-generation program.
Scapple requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or greater, running on an Intel based Mac. The program is currently moving though Apple’s review process and will be available from the App Store shortly.
Pricing and Availability:
Scapple is now available for purchase from our website for $14.99 (USD). A fully-featured, 30-day trial is also available. For full details, see Scapple’s product page.
Literature & Latte was founded by self-taught programmer Keith Blount in 2006 with the sole purpose of creating software that aids in the creative process of writing long texts. We didn’t set out to become a software company; we just just happened to develop a piece of software that other people were interested in. Literature & Latte’s headquarters are in Truro in Cornwall, England. Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Literature & Latte. All Rights Reserved.
