I have come across apps claiming to be exactly what I need. Very few few ever live up to that promise. Thinking Space doesn’t claim that and I couldn’t tell you if it does or not. Why, you ask? Mainly because I only had it loaded for five minutes before I knew Thinking Space Pro was my better option. Don’t get me wrong here, the free version is awesome. However the paid version does do exactly what I need. Did I confuse you a little there? I’m sorry, we will try to avoid that kind of play on words in the future. (Maybe.)
I am in college and I have a lot of .pdf files for school on my Tab 10.1, (It is my soul in school, without it I would be doomed.) and most of them are converted power points. So when I study, I need to have all of them as well as my notes in one place. Instead I have to search for them with Astro File Manager or load them in through Office Suite Pro 5. Neither option is hard at all, but it is time consuming searching through multiple files just to find the one I need. Thinking Space Pro allows you to inbed them all into one “mind map,” now they are all right at your finger tips, for easy studying. Read on past the break for the screen shoots and links to download.
There are so many options to choose from. I know your thinking that’s just one more spot you now have to look. Not true my friends, once I have everything connected for that one class within that specific map. That’s it, no more trying to find the file because it’s already been found once, now it is grouped with all the things I need. No more cross app searching for my notes while I am trying to get the info from the .pdf file, now they are both right in front of me on the same page. It still uses the appropriate app to open each file but when I exit from one it goes back to my main map.
The UI is not terrible to work with, they could change some things. (Not sure on what though.) It gets confusing sometimes trying to remember what each option does. Do I double tap that or is it a double tap her instead. Little learning things that I’m sure I will master the more I use it. Overall it does work really well and has no problems. (That I found.) What I can’t get over is how nice everything looks and feels.
The bubble conversation really works for me as sometimes in class will be on one subject and then get carried away on another. It helps to have an app that takes notes in this way. The app also encourages you to download Dropbox with it. You don’t have to, but I also recommend it. It gives you the versatility of loading it into the cloud and then pulling it up on your PC at the office or home. Dropbox is free as well as Thinking Space. Pro will run you $4.88 on the Android Market. I promise it is worth that 5 bucks right down to every penny. It totally delivers on what I need it to do. I know if you give it a shot, and can actually think of a use for it, it will be a perfect addition to your purchased app collection.
