What they say[edit]

“Mind mapping tool is a piece of software that allows the user hierarchical diagrams centered around a single word or concept. They can be used for taking notes on a lecture, outlining project ideas or just organizing one’s thoughts. I propose a simple HTML5-based editor with a minimal interface, focused on speed of creation of useful mind maps. It would more likely be used for a quick brainstorming session than to prepare visuals for company’s next big keynote.

Goals:

To design a simple tool for taking notes using the mind map approach;

Find a balance between UI simplicity and UI usage speed;

Make use of HTML5 goodies out there: most notably local storage, app cache.

Optimize UX for Chromium OS (make it an installable web app, design UI with the chrome browser window around in mind).”

Observations[edit]

This is a simple proof-of-concept mind mapper that only works with Google Chrome. Log in with a Google account and you can supposedly save maps to the cloud but it failed for me. You can also save maps locally. It is allows only a strictly tree-based hierarchy but has a novel option to suggest images to attach to nodes, based on the words in the node.
