Bubble Browser is a Picturesque App That Creates a Kind of Mind Map for Evernote Notes


Bubble Browser is a cool app I ran across recently that graphically displays all of your Evernote notes beautifully…

I’ve been searching for a great mind mapping tool to use with Evernote. Something that would work well on ios devices. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that perhaps the best option is one that I’ve already explored and even written about here at vsatips.

I first encountered Bubble Browser in 2013.  I don’t remember where or how I first discovered this cool app…but I was so impressed with it that I wrote this short post.

Well, guess what…Bubble Browser is exactly what I’m searching for now, in 2016.  I need a graphical way of displaying my notes in a mind map.  Not only does Bubble Browser fit the bill…but it does this very elegantly!  So, I’ve rewritten my original post to include some new information.

Why Do I Need a Mind Mapping Tool?

A Mind Map of Tags Would Help Me To Manage Tags in a Batch-Like Mode on ios

I use Evernote almost exclusively…all day long…everyday…to gather my thoughts, capture ideas, store relevant content…virtually everything I do and everything I think ends up in Evernote.  My notebooks, notes and tags are voluminous.  I need a way to see large notebooks in relative space instead of in a linear display.  In addition to notes and tags Bubble Browser includes bubbles for dates, which is a great way for me to see subsets of my data by creation date.

My main purpose is to start adding more tags to notes as a method of cross referencing all my data. Because recently I encountered something I didn’t know about previously…there’s a maximum number of notebooks for individual user accounts.  That maximum is 250 notebooks.  I’ve almost reached that limit and I need a better method of classifying data that won’t encounter a maximum limit in the future.  Because the maximum number of tags allowed is 100,000…which essentially means to me that there’s no upper limit for tags.

Steps to get started using the Bubble Browser app

Bubble Browser Video Tutorials

The team that developed Bubble Browser is from Poland.  They’ve created 2 videos on Vimeo that are both visual tutorials for learning to use the app.


Bubble Browser was named one of the top 100 best designed apps of 2014 by the US Mobile & App Design Awards ranking service.  The app is intended to provide mind mapping features which in turn provides additional insight into the breadth of your notes, by categorizing them into colorful bubbles. The main types of bubbles are dates, tags and notebooks.  I’m not sure why this app never really was accompanied by a specially designed marketing campaign…because it truly is a brilliantly beautiful concept.

The Following is Taken Verbatim From App Design Awards Website:

About vsajewel

Hi...I'm the author of 2 main blogs on WordPress...vsatips...where I write tech tips for mobile devices...primarily ios...2nd is vsatrends...where I write less about tech things and more about everything else. I also host a YouTube channel which I use to better illustrate some of the 'how to's' in my posts. I love everything about technology. Currently, my main interests/platforms are ios, Windows and Amazon Echo. Recently I decided we were spending way too much money with our local cable provider. So I decided to cut the cord. There is a definite learning curve, especially the antennae part, but we successfully did that and are now saving a boatload of money, so I write some about that. I also am extremely conscientious about security because of an event my family endured , so I write a lot about that too. Two sub-categories of security I tend to focus on are the password manager Dashlane and Hardware Firewalls. Last, I take a lot of notes and have been a beta tester for Evernote for many years. I love Evernote! In recent years Apple has beefed up Apple Notes a lot...so it’s become a fairly serious note contender...as long as its OK if you lose or mess up all your Apple note data. I write about those 2 note platforms primarily.
