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$

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".

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.

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.

This is a cool application. It's clean and simple, the way things should be. If it could be ported to Palm this would be 5 stars

Pyramid 1.1 has now been fully integrated with the Panther text system. It uses the standard OS X Font and Color panels. We took some heat for version 1.0 because of its non-standard approach to handling text attributes. The other major issue that surfaced repeatedly with the 1.0 release has also been addressed - that being the excessive demo restrictions - most of which have now been removed. We hope that visual thinkers will download version 1.1 and decide for themselves whether Pyramid meets their expectations. Thanks, Mike MindCad Support

I really don't understand all the high ratings. This program is really not ready for prime time. Basic things like font handling and font color are handled very poorly. And connecting objects--the basic premise of this program--is very flaky. There are a lot of outline type programs out there, and this one doesn't do anything special to warrant the price.

Its simple and does a great job for what I need it to do. I'm looking forward to new features, but is still worth the $29. Some things I would like to see are being able to have tic marks on all branches, not just the two on the outside. Also, page tiling guidelines would be a great feature. Problems I seem to have are not being able to create a new document without quitting the application first and font attributes only work on the document as a whole, not individual items. These may be inexperience on my part since I've only been using it for a day.
