Wridea – Explore Your Ideas

Inspiration can strike at any time, which is why it’s important to get those great ideas down on paper as quickly as possible once they enter your mind. Wridea is a web-app that can help with that process, by providing a simple solution to a common problem. People who use Wridea can quickly jot down all their best ideas – and even some not-so-good ones – organize those ideas by category, and then discuss the potential consequences of any of those ideas with friends, colleagues, and total strangers online.

If you’ve got ideas, then you’ve got a reason to sign up for Wridea. Create an account for free. In less than 30 seconds, you’ll be typing in your first idea on one of Wridea’s custom idea boards. Click “Add new idea” and type in a sentence or two about whatever your idea was. To add a more detailed description, click “Details.” You can also share the idea with friends by clicking the “Sharing” button and selecting whether you’d like to make the idea private, public, or visible only to select friends online. Once you’ve got a handful of ideas under your belt, you’ll need to start creating new pages to keep everything organized. Pages are generally centered around categories or themes, and you can share each different page with a select group of friends depending on what the content of the page pertains to. Share a page of work ideas with your colleagues from the office, for example, while keeping a page of home improvement ideas visible only to you and your spouse.

To get additional help brainstorming and fleshing out your new ideas, keep an idea public and share it with the entire Wridea community. Community members and online friends can comment on your public ideas and offer advice on how to expand on those ideas to make them even better. For people who need help keeping their thoughts organized, Wridea is an interesting solution.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep track of the ideas that come to mind during the night
  • Share your ideas about home improvement projects with your spouse
  • Let colleagues know all the great new ideas you thought of during the day
  • Get feedback and insight from the Wridea community about your latest business idea

Insider Tips:

  • Select the privacy settings for individual ideas or pages
  • Create your own tools or products using the Wridea API
  • Click “Idea Rain” to see your ideas drop onto the screen in random order
  • See how many ideas you’ve posted to each page by viewing the “Idea Count”

What we liked:

  • Wridea makes it easy to store and organize ideas
  • People who use Wridea can share their best ideas with coworkers and friends
  • Browsing through previous ideas can help generate new moments of genius
  • Ideas can be as private or as public as a user wishes

What we didn’t like:

  • Wridea might not be as useful to people whose best ideas come in the middle of the night, since they’re probably better off with a simple pen and notepad
  • Business ideas that are made public on Wridea are liable to be stolen by other users
