New: Consideo Modeler is a simulation package with a mind-mapping front end as one of its interfaces. It is costly, but simulation software never comes cheap.
New: Semantik is a mindmapper that is currently under development as a replacement for Kdissert. It can be downloaded now, and can already read Kdissert files.
New: Xebece uses the hyperbolic maps model to solve the problem of too much information on one page. This software was previously known as Celientra and Ontographics before that. Its author certainly has a way with names – I prefer Celientra, myself because I can think of about five ways that Xebece might be pronounced.
Well, that’s it – the new entries on mind-mapping.org for the weekend.
New: Curio – I mentioned this project management software with mind mapping built in recently in the blog and now it’s up on mind-mapping.org.
New: Free outliner Task Coach has been added.
New: BrainStreamer is a task manager that includes a mind mapper.
New: (Well, new to mind-mapping.org) ThinkTank a charming piece of downloadable, runnable outlining history from twenty years ago. That cover looks strangely familiar…
New: TVO (The Vim Outliner) a free Linux outliner.
Update: The entry for TheBrain has been updated and an image has been added.
Update: The entry for 3D Topicscape has been updated, with images of 3D mind maps from the newer version.
Update: The Leo entry also has new images and a new sourceforge URL.
I haven’t got it onto Mind-mapping.org yet, but I’ve just seen that Zengobi has mind mapping in its Mac-based project management software, Curio 4: http://www.zengobi.com/products/curio/
Almost tempts me to buy a Mac . . . (I should be so lucky).
I’ll add it to the database very soon.
There are some interesting additions today. One, Rationale, is for making argument maps, and another, Pocket FreeMind, that has potential. The author says he may later make it produce actual mind maps on pocket devices.
gjots2: a simple, free jotter and outline processor for Linux,
NeoMem: a free outliner that lets you define different classes of record.
Rationale: A graphical tool for expressing what the makers call “Argument maps”.
Pocket Freemind: A free outliner that uses the FreeMind file format and runs on Windows Mobile.
EDrawMax: A diagramming tool that can make mind and concept maps.
I’ve added an outliner for PDAs to the list: TreNotes. Neat use of the small screen.
tiffany b. brown (her lower-case) has a thorough comparison of four of the popular new on-line mind mapping services, MindMeister, Mind42, Comapping and Mindomo.
She provides a narrative discussion of each and a useful comparison table that covers the technologies, costs, features and compatibility with other software.
Well worth a visit.
