This software has great potential. As background, I currently use Novamind. I've tried Inspiration and concept draws solutions. Compared to both Inspiration and concept draw - Pyramid is a cleaner more eye-appealing layout. It is more "linear" layout than Novamind. A project can have multiple pages - nice. Wish Novamind had this feature. You can create multiple mindmaps/outlines on a single page.. You can click anywhere to start a word or idea.. then drag them around and snap them together. It is missing the ability to add notes to the branches and concepts. And it's branches off the main idea will be too linear for some.. The developers are onto something good here. I'm interested to know where they are going to take it... I'd encourage anyone to download and try it..

This program looks great. I've trialled it and it's neat, however to expensive for my tastes. I'd download for 25 bucks most definately. Not against paying for it, just don't have the cash! Do let me know if the price ever drops.

I tried the the demo version of Pyramid and it seems quite slick… a reasonably polished piece of work. However the distinction between it and the companies "flagship product", Incubator seems fairly minor. It does seem quite expensive for what is quite limited mind-mapping software and I can't see huge advantages over the freeware My Mind. Perhaps someone with more experience would care to draw some distinctions? I wouldn't really place OmniGraffle in the same category because it simple does much, much more than mind-mapping and is also much more manual than these packages make the process. Try the alternatives before you buy.

Hey, if you don't like the price, don't buy it. But I paid and I'm glad I did because it is more productive than any other similar software. I own OmniGraffle too, but they totally different animals. If you don't understand that, it's easy to see why you can't figure out why Pyramid is worth the $50 and then some.

Still too much expensive. Why? Does it contains any secrets? I wish to know, but not for 50 bucks.

Unbelievable price, especially compared with OmniGraffle. Don't waste your money on this go to the Omni website.

the app is not bad: few but honest features. But doesn't worth 49 bucks. I suspect is a print error: should be 4,99$

The program MyMind is available on this site and is free, and has garnered solid reviews in support. Suggest you also try that application.

Am I missing something? $49 for....what exactly? This thing sppears to be a one-trick pony: all it does is create pretty hierarchies (which it does well). OmniGraffle simply kicks this thing's arse in terms of actual functionality for only $10 more. Actually, I feel sort of embarassed comparing the two. Who convinced this developer that this tool is worth such a high price? This is more of a $15 utility that a $49 "Brainstorming Application".

I agree. $49 is too much for this product. It is very nice and works well, but until the price is lowered, I won't buy it.

This software is very good as a program, but (at least the version I looked at, several months ago) was registering, which means it must contact the developer site to get permission to run. There was no indication on the site before buying the software that this was the case; I can only assume this detail was omitted because the developer knows that many people, confronted with this fact, will simply not buy the software. I feel it is wrong on many levels to fail to make this decision very clear prior to the purchase and hence it is important to allow readers of this site to understand this before making a buying decision. Having said that, the software is excellent. It is not, however, greatly superior to competing non-registering products such as Inspiration or Novamind. This field has many good options. If the registering issue is not important to you, in my opinion you should test-drive Inspiration and Novamind as well as Pyramid, and then make a final decision regarding which best serves your needs.

Pyramid requires a single contact via the internet when activating. After that, it optionally contacts our server to check for updates. This check for update feature can be turned off via the preferences panel. Again, Pyramid does not (and NEVER has) required contacting our server for permission to run.

To avoid any misunderstanding regarding the proceeding comment, Pyramid does not require permission to run. When activating, Pyramid makes a one-time connection via the internet to our licensing server. After that, it runs without further contact. No personal information is ever sent to our server at any time during the activation process. There is an option which causes Pyramid to "check for updates" each time it is started, but this option can easily be defeated using the Preferences panel. Hopefully this will clear up any confusion.

I enjoy all apps along this nature as it is the means by which I think. I do like Pyramid, but I fell that a little know and almost forgotten app called MyMind is better. Unfortunately, MyMind has seen little development for what could be an excellent app. Comparing the two I will still choose MyMind, even with all its quirks. Too bad both Programmers could not get together and bring about an app that would really be stunning.

Anon, an app like this that you might find "really stunning" is Omnigroup's Omnigraffle. It is a little more pricey than most mind mapping apps, but it is also amazing versitile and feature-laden. Their website has a gallery of all the things it can do,
