MyMind1.3.2

26 September 2005

Outline ideas, tasks, and projects.

Overview

MyMind is an application that lets you outline your ideas, tasks, projects, and it also lets you easily create beautiful graphical representations of your documents. You can either choose one of the pre-defined layouts or you can customize the layout in many different ways.

MyMind was designed to be easy and fun to use at the same time.

From professional business graphs to an overview of the hierarchical structures of your company to mind maps that help you learn for upcoming exams, everything is possible. MyMind lets you save the created maps with a transparent background so that you can use them in other applications such as Apple's "Keynote".

What's new in MyMind

Version 1.3.2:
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to crashes when opening documents

Really excellent free mind map software that is nicely customisable. Can crash if you try to delete too many branches in mindmap view, much better to do moving around etc. in list view mode and then give it a few moments to redraw the mindmap. A preference to open new maps with your preferred set up would be nice, but it's hard to complain when it's otherwise so good, and free.

The possibility of edit the outline in both views (chart and list) is unique and very useful. It requires Rosetta, and I hope to see a Lion version.

I actually like this more than MindNode, since the mind map is much more customizable (both auto and by hand) once it is created. I do wish there were keyboard shortcuts to create new siblings/children rather than having to alternate typing with clicks, though. And while it is PPC, meaning it works absolutely fine on PowerPC and Intel macs alike via Rosetta, come OS X Lion this won't run.

Even though only PPC is specified, this does work on Intel Macs. However it is quite dated and the dev appears to only be active on his German blog. There are so many alternatives this likely is not worth the time it takes to download (and subsequently detele) it.

This app is a jewel : so simple, so smooth, so versatile. After having tested so many head-breaking and expensive "gaz-factory" competitors of MyMind, I can't believe that someone could invent and develop such a perfect app. MyMind demonstrates that what is often missing is a clear vision from the developers, not the computer or the OS capacities. I hope that the young developer of MyMind finally receives the money he deserves for this remarkable software. Btw : the Tiere example provided with MyMind is very useful, and the help menu is both short and clear. They should definitely be used the first time.

I like this software. It would be great if you could: - make it Universal. - allow editing in map view aswell. - open-source this to let it continue developing.

It is a shame such a wonderfully useful and elegant tiny applications seems to have been abandoned by the developer. Not that it misses a lot, and what it does it already does very well. But I would love this excellent work grow. It is probably the best in its genre.

Great, simple, elegant application. Create wonderful black and white mind maps. Do straightforward This is like MORE or Word 5.1 or MacDraw, a great Mac classic. Finally a step away from buggy, expensive, bloatware (the entire rest of the mind mapping category).

I write as a hobby, and I'm already finding this sleek little app very useful to keep tabs on plot elements, characters and progress, although I think it would probably be useful for many other things. Some suggestions for use: meal planning (make a matrix of your weekly shoppling list to know what you have to work with) to school work (memorize the cast of King Lear with familial connections, map out the animal kingdom, connect metaphors for a term paper) to business (plan a timeline for that big leap public) to collectors to hobbyists to -- well, a lot of things. Despite a learning curve, MyMind is definitely worth a try.

MyMind is fun, simple and fast. But a few more features may be helpful. A NAVIGATOR Much like the one in Novamind. Better yet, the one in Photoshop ZOOM Bar should be wider with the option to type in value and use arrow keys IMPORT & EXPORT Expand options to include PDF, Word, Mindmanager, XML. In a kinder gentler world all mind mapping software can open each other BRANCHES COPYING copying branch as is without it expanding to maximum upon paste-can be extremely frustratiing >:( SELECTING Novamind allows you to select a group of branches and move them. Being able to cut/copy and paste them would also be a great option FONT A choice of different colour for each branch BOXES More options: rounded, filled, etc. Basically, the more industry standard features + a little extra to screwover corporate pricks the better. If the features of Mind Manager & Novamind were combined and available cross platform, I'd be in digiheaven.

This piece is fantastic. Straight and to the point, it makes outlines and mapping a piece of cake. I've tried other programs that were similar, but this one certainly seems to be the best. Good job!

Very useful. I'll be sad to see this become a commercial product, but I can understand if it does. However, I would like to see the ability to use key commands to make siblings and sub-items instead of having to click the buttons. I like the option of hitting return to make siblings in the preferences, but could you also add a second option of hitting tab to make sub-items, much in the way OmniOutliner does? Just a thought. A very nice piece of software otherwise.

This is a GREAT little app! The learning curve is just excellent... I've used it one day, and think I have it down! Perfect for the Bible studies and sermon preparations I am called to do! The maps are neat, though I haven't found a use for them yet (again, its only been one day!) Now, if only there was a way to place a line break in the nodes! If I wasn't broke right now I'd give the author a big help (maybe some one out there can?) KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!!!

When I had OSX 10.2, I definately could not run MM1.2 - tho' it runs fine on 10.3. However, MM1.3 seems to be running (if Toad and The Wet Sprocket, are indeed your favorite band - Hey! They had some good songs) on my OSX 10.3 eMac. Should I shut as to not jinx this? Or are you just not 'supporting' MM1.3 on 10.3? (eMac 700, 384MB, 10.3.9)

Great, very intuitive and a pleasure to use. Although FreeMind ( http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19325 ) has more features and it's cross platform (OpenSource). But I like MyMind better. Because it works and feels like a Mac application. And for me, that an advantage. Keep the good work, and thanks for making it free guys. That's the spirit. (this should be OpenSource and cross Platform) cheers

This is really EASY to learn. It's free, and it's dedicated to a task. This would be an excellent program to "take with you" on a thumbdrive for use on another machine. It's small, and it has absolutely no licensing issues. Great inspector for chaning settings. If you don't like what you see at first. Try the inspector The undo is a bit buggy.

Surprisingly powerful. Although the outline is still rudimentary compared to OmniOutliner, NoteBook, etc. the integration with the mindmap is excellent. One can add connecting lines between nodes within the map AND within the outline. Maps can be exported as html. Similar to OO, outlines can have columns for websites. Etc. If you are interested in outlining AND diagramming it is certainly worth your while to try this.

Hey Steve, Please see my post below. I had some of the same issues with the beta. Version 1.0 (the "official" version) is available at the developer's site. It includes much of the functionality of the beta, but it's more stable (as you would expect). You might want to check out "Locator" while you're there.

Great app... love the maps. Notwithstanding, it crashes every time I expand or contract, with a total loss of all unsaved data. Help!

This app shows great promise, and I think it offers enough outlining/mapmaking functionality for many users. For myself, the additional features of the current beta were not worth the tradeoff in stability, so I've reverted to version 1.0 for now (I would characterize that as a compliment to Version 1.0 rather than a criticism of 1.1b2). I'm looking forward to a stable version that incorporates all the new features. One suggestion: I think the user should be able to choose whether double-clicking on a node (a) edits the node in map view - the 1.1 system; or (b) highlights the node name for editing in outline view - the 1.0 system. Since I'm rating the beta, I have to drop a couple of stars for stability...but I'm well aware that betas are unstable by definition.

It's the first time I use this kind of application and it's really nice. Beats paper or Stickies by a mile. I like that everything is simple and straight forward. The map function is cool. There is one bug that slows me down: when I select the last item in the list and try to outdent it, it just doesn't work. I hope this will be fixed in a patch. Also, I would like to be able to set fonts/colours for columns, lines or cells. Overall, a great, stable little app.

Great little app that lets you make maps via outlines rather than the drag/drop>connect>change title>etc. process in most mapping/graffling apps. This could become a real omnikiller in the future.
