I never knew this app was so easy and powerful, until I a came across a YouTube video tutorial. It’s a must for business analysts , project managers or anyone who wants to define process and workflow. I wish the developer add more features like collaboration and notification users to other users. Also if the developer uploads some guide of short YouTube videos tutorials to new users.

⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Update: I would love to see some example charts pre-loaded for fictional companies, projects, or research flows. Also Please have a link somewhere in the app that can take me to a webpage with curated examples from the company and community. I feel like if I had the right inspiration from the community, I could get way more out of this app. Also, please make a YouTube video where I can follow along with the tutorial as someone is explaining it step by step. Based on the reviews I read from others, this app is having serious on-boarding issues, with low post download use retention. I’m quite frustrated myself, but I do see the potential in this app once I get over the learning curve, and for that I give this app 5 stars. Please just help myself and others get over this curve faster and I’ll talk to Apple and see if they can add a sixth star 😉 [end of update] ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ This app is hands down amazing. It has a high learning curve, and that learning curve has unfairly earned this app some bad reviews. This is a professional tool for professionals. Approach the app appropriately. Commit the time needed to learn how to take full advantage of this powerful app, otherwise don’t waste your time. I’m sorry but if this app is too complex for someone to understand, it’s not the apps fault, it’s that person’s fault not taking the time to learn something a little complicated. And it’s not complicated in a poorly design manner, rather it’s more like learning a new language... complex in that you can’t just pick it up and go, but once you get going, you are the master of the universe. The problem this app solves is all the things you cannot do with pen and paper when trying to diagram out workflows. Anyone can draw boxes and arrows on paper to organize ideas, but does your piece of paper let you tap on a box to reveal more boxes and arrows? Can your piece of paper let you see your diagram in a Gantt chart view? The answers to those questions and many more just like it is no. - Get this app if you want to chart out your entire business down to the smallest detail. - Get this app if you want to map out a user experience flow for a service connected app you are designing. - Get this app for researching all the steps on how to update your Facebook page, and even including the food you need to eat in order to have the energy to move your hand, to click the mouse, to interact with the computer, to add inputs into the web app etc. - DO NOT get this app if you are looking for a simple app to chart out simple flow diagrams. Save your self $6.99 and grab a piece of paper and a pen... and whatever you do, don’t complain after using the app; that you couldn’t make use of the app, because you didn’t want to take the time to learn how to use it 😂

I cut my losses on the tutorials and I could tell that I wasn't getting anywhere with the software. It's too complex. The tutorial was very roundabout. I say that because it was 70 pages long. That's called beating around the bush. I needed basic knowledge like I don't know, how to delete. Waste of money. Considering it's an iOS app they need to dumb it down for Apple people.

It's probably about once a year I use an app that stands out to me so much I just have to write a review about it. This past year, it's definitely inShort. I've been an MBA student and a freelance consultant to small businesses of 1-10 people, I don't have a ton of real world application to a good chunk of features this app provides, but my research covers almost every app you can think of. I'm not sure if I would say the learning curve is steep, I always considered the learning curve of OmniFocus to be pretty steep mostly because I could never quite tailor my tasks around the GTD method. As an entrepreneur, I don't have a problem getting things done or prioritizing the various aspects of my life, my clients, and my businesses. What I've always had a problem with is finding a solution that can grow and adapt with myself, my clients, and my businesses. I've used MindNode for quite some time which is a great tool to easily breakdown and structure your thoughts when your mind moves a million miles a second, but the problem I was always left with is being able to export, convert, or transform those mind maps into a real usable workflow without custom creating my own application to process the exportable formats. This is where inShort comes in. It's either as simple as a task manager, or as complex as a project manager like Basecamp, Asana, Wrike, etc. I've love the concept of Trello, but it always fell short when in several areas, namely the early stages of actually creating and organizing a complex workflow. inShort also covers this area by acting as a database schema. Everything is connected giving you the power to create powerful relationships. The only downside so far is that I wish they had an evaluation version on the desktop for students. Although it's a huge bargain at $40, I don't have the money for it yet. I'll update my review after I purchase the desktop version and mess around with it. My advice to Jury Shortki, offer some sort of trial or evaluation version, maybe offer a limited number of objects for free, and then charge a monthly subscription based on the amount of usage someone is getting out of it. $40 is too cheap for someone that is actually using this app, but it's too expensive for someone that isn't using it or is skeptical of its capabilities. The online tool was a great move, at least now you'll be able to track and gain more insights to how and when people are using your app.
