Idea Sketch


Idea Sketch lets you easily draw a diagram – mind map, concept map, or flow chart – and convert it to a text outline, and vice versa. You can use Idea Sketch for anything, such as brainstorming new ideas, illustrating concepts, making lists and outlines, planning presentations, creating organizational charts, and more!

Create Ideas Instantly

Copy text from another app, such as an email, document, or web page, and import it into Idea Sketch to automatically create an idea that can be viewed as both a diagram and outline.

Share Your Ideas

Diagrams and outlines can be easily shared via email or and copied directly into other apps. Diagrams can also be saved to the Photos app (to sync to your desktop) or uploaded to Facebook.


Idea Sketch is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. You'll be creating and editing diagrams and outlines right away. There's no drawing required, just enter your text and move the shapes around, Idea Sketch handles the rest.

Extra Features

The app is free and fully functional without any limitations or advertisements. Additional features are available through an optional in-app purchase to upgrade to Plus: folder organization, iCloud, AirPrint, 4 more shapes, 4 more color themes (each with 8 color choices), 5 more fonts, high-quality PDF diagrams (ideal for printing), and edit diagrams on a Mac or PC desktop using any software that supports the VDX file format such as OmniGraffle and Visio.

This is a great flow chart app. My 8th grade son has a dream of designing his own line of tennis shoes someday. He has all his ideas for this project in an elaborate flow chart on Idea Sketch. What a great tool!
