ArguMap will be free to download and can be used forever to open and view maps in read-only format. A free 30-day trial of the app's "Pro" features allows users to try out the powerful editing functionality of the app. A one-time in-app purchase of $8.99 unlocks those Pro editing features for use beyond the trial period.
The editing features of ArguMap are also available in ArguMap's paid-up-front version— ArguMap Pro— which will be available for the same price, $8.99. ArguMap Pro is ideal for institutional purchases and for families seeking to share the app via Family Sharing.
ArguMap and ArguMap Pro will be available in the App Store, for any iOS device running iOS 14 or greater, in all territories the App Store supports, on Wednesday, November 25, 2020. Until that time, you can try out the open public beta here.
My name is Chad Mohler, and I’m the creator, developer, and designer of ArguMap. I’ve had a love of technology and All Things Apple ever since I started programming simple educational games way back in fifth grade, on one of my school’s two(!) Apple ][ computers. I am now a Professor of Philosophy at Truman State University, Missouri’s premier public liberal arts institution, where I bring my passion for technology to the classroom. I do my best to use it effectively to guide my students to a better understanding of important philosophical concepts and theories. ArguMap was borne out of my interest in helping my students develop in their ability to offer insightful philosophical arguments of their own. Partly in recognition of my efforts, I was selected in 2019 as an Apple Distinguished Educator.
