App Description

Cell Storming is a unique mind mapping app that uses media for laying out thoughts and ideas.

With Cell Storming you create mind maps (cell maps) by connecting hexagonal cells together and then adding media elements to these cells. You can add images, videos, voice memos, text, and web links to each cell on the map, which can then be viewed when browsing your cell map later on.

The v1.50 update included functionality to connect cells to other cell maps which enables the creation of multi-level hierarchical cell maps! This new linking functionality even extends to the flow media exports where any linked cell maps are examined for content (images, videos, audio) for exporting with their parent cell map(s).

New to the v1.60 release is the ability to import documents from other apps and attach them to cells in your cell map. These documents can be viewed within Cell Storming as you browse media stored in the cells.


>> MANAGING CELL MAPS

Cell Maps are easily accessible from the home screen by browsing thumbnail images showing the latest state of each map.

Extensive export options enable you to share cell maps (including their media elements) with other Cell Storming users. Or you can generate images and PDFs of your cell maps for non-users. Dropbox support is built-in along with email and iTunes document sharing.

Cell Maps can also be printed via an AirPrint compatible printer.

* Please note that some export functionality requires an In-App Purchase to the full version before becoming available.


>> PRESENTING CELL MAPS

Cell Storming features Screen-casting functionality that allows you to present cell maps on your device to other local devices by sending what is displayed on your screen to the other devices (using local networking via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth).

Or use any of the many included export options to generate presentation videos, slides, documents, or movies.

* Note that screen-casting functionality requires an In-App Purchase to the full version.


>> CELL STORMING PRO

Upgrade to the Pro version of Cell Storming via an In-App Purchase and access additional Flow Export functions that can generate and export media files defined by how your cell map flows (using connection arrows from cell to cell). Flow exports include text, audio, movies, image slides, and presentation video generation.

You can watch an example Flow Presentation Video created from Cell Storming Pro on YouTube here:

Use Cell Storming to map new ideas, document existing processes and entities, or use the media capture features to record events as they happen.


>> CELL STORMING IN THE CLASSROOM

- Present themes and observations using media elements captured in cell maps.
- Set interactive tasks or games for students that require them to explain ideas through media or patterns.
- Use the screen-casting feature to observe how students are progressing with their tasks (* after upgrading to Standard version).
- Students can present their resulting cell maps using the flow presentation video export feature, or generate audio commentary files from voice memos recorded in cells (* after upgrading to Pro version).
