Inspiration Software originally designed their self-named software for teachers. However, this easy-to-use flowchart application has found a home with everyone from Web designers to IT professionals.

Inspiration can organize information into topic outlines, flowcharts, and diagrams. It's an excellent prototyping tool for people working in Web design: you brainstorm using your computer, creating symbols that you can drop, drag, format, and rearrange until you've managed to organize your thoughts. You can turn a collection of random pages into a neatly ordered site tree, allowing anyone who's looked at the chart to intuit how the pages are grouped and how users will navigate from section to section.

Inspiration remains the best product for creating visual aids to thinking or planning. New users can readily create simple diagrams and outlines, and experienced users can create elaborate outlines, flow charts, and concept maps. I highly recommend Inspiration to educators. I used it as a teacher at a medical school to prepare lectures and problem-solving sessions, and I also use Inspiration to diagram complex topics for myself. Students can benefit from using Inspiration to help study and to help prepare outlines and written assignments. Inspiration is a great tool for anyone who conducts brainstorming sessions, especially if the diagram-in-progress can be displayed on a whiteboard connected to a computer.

This thing was installed on some of the computers at my elementary school. We never used it, but I remember seeing the icon on the Launcher and not knowing what it was for. Only recently, when I saw that icon again, did I remember seeing this thing.
