  1. I’ve seen the executive types into this mindmapping stuff. I always thought it was mumbo jumbo and you can accomplish the same thing with a notes and a decent outline.

  2. Mindmaps are great.

    I love using them because they really help me organize things, but there’s just no way this wouldn’t be too small on a bb screen.

  3. @Ed

    Actually, MM’s are similar to outlines, but you can create more obvious relationships across nodes and sub-points. I’ve been a longtime user of the most excellent Freemind (Sourceforge) & it’s just a much more robust tool than any outline. Nodes can be labels, have notes attached, be links to documents/directories/applications/websites/other mindmaps…it’s much easier to manipulate/reorder nodes…& the list goes on.

    Give it a shot…you might get hooked. I like using it for procedures that are intricate but that I don’t do often enough for them to be memorized. Perfect tool for that.


  4. So far, I like this app. I use MindManager on my desk and laptop, but having this app on my Berry for those times when I don’t want to fire either of those up or don’t have them with me is great. Wonder how much they’ll charge for it once it comes out of beta…
