Explore With Confidence
Tangent visualizes the path of your thoughts with elegant sliding panels and a branching map that builds itself as you write. You always know where you are and where you've been.
Follow the thread of your thoughts in any direction they take you. Never get lost.
Own Your Own Thoughts

Nothing is hidden from you. Everything is yours.
