Tutorial: Popplet on The iPad and iPhone – Transferring Popplets to the Online Tab

We have all done it. Spent precious time creating a magnificent piece of Popplet wizardry on the iPad, or quickly saved a few important ideas on the Popplet iPhone app only to later discover, while sitting down to take a look at our popplets on the computer, that our hard work has gone! Breathe! We check our iOS devices, and there it is. Question is: Why can’t I see my Popplet online?

The Popplet app has three tabs:

  • iPad/iPhone/iPod
  • online
  • public

If you can’t find the Popplet you are looking for online,  but you are able to access it in the Popplet iOS app, then the Popplet was probably created in the device tab.

To create a Popplet on your iOS device and be able work on it in from your computer/laptop then choose the online tab.

Back to our problem: I don’t want to spend time redoing all my work, is there a way to transfer a popplet from the device tab to the online tab? Fortunately, there is.

Get Inspired: Popplet Examples To Get Your Brain Jucies Flowing!

Get inspired to create visual thinking maps and concept outlines that help you remember new information, make connections between ideas, and share your thoughts and unique perspective.

This year, we have some great new features planned, including tagging popplets to help you better store your popplet creations with key words and subject categories. We are also looking forward to offering you a new way to share your popplets with the world, with new popularity rankings of public popplets.

While we put the finishing touches on these features, you can get inspired to create new mind maps and concept outlines with our online, iPad, iPhone and iPod apps by viewing some Popplet examples on our new Pinterest account.

We admit, we have been a bit slow to jump on the Pinterest bus. It is a great tool for sharing images, but we love how a publicly shared Popplet is interactive and lets you move around it, zoom in and out, play videos and jump to links. We were worried that none of that interactivity is available through Pinterest.

But on the other hand, we know many of our users are on Pinterest, and sometimes, you want to get inspired by seeing other Popplet examples and learn from how they have been laid out, color coded, and organized. You might not be so fussed about the actual content, so you don’t need to move about so much or click on and watch a youtube video: what you want to get inspired by is the overall organization and mind map design. Well, if that’s the case, our set of Pinterest boards are ideal mind fodder for you! Continue reading
