Incubator (was Pyramid) lets you organize your ideas using a tool that complements the way you think. Drag in text and images from Safari, Word, the Desktop and most other OS X applications. Place them anywhere on multiple worksheets within a single document.

Use the content you've gathered to build elaborate visual hierarchies. Add annotation. Link to external Web pages and desktop documents. Easily mastered, surprisingly powerful.

I've found Incubator to be an elegantly clean and convenient application for brainstorming and outlining. When I needed support MindCad was outstanding. I would pay $49 for this as a first-time purchaser.

However, after looking at “What’s New” and playing around with version 3.0 I don't see anything remotely significant enough in it over version 2.6.4 that justifies repurchasing it for $49. I would consider a very modest upgrade price. Am I missing something?

Version 3.0

I have to agree. I've had Incubator since the Pyramid days and moved on from it to MindNode because Incubator never really advanced. And MindNode Pro costs half the price with more functionality!

Takes a long time for significant updates, but when they come, wow! Very nice new features for one of the world's most stable and useful Mac apps!

This is a solid application. Unfortunately it hasn't evolved for quite some time now, thought there is plenty of room for improvements. Hope they get this back on track.

This looks to be a solid application for what it claims to do [for the end user] and for not too bad a price.

FreeMind (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19325), though, offers much of the same functionality at the unbeatable price of free.
