Put me down as another person who is getting ready to switch. I've been a mindjet user for over a decade. I was thrilled when I heard they were releasing a version for Mac, and upset I had to pay almost full price for it. Their updates have been expensive. Last year I got no update with their service plan and while I got 9 this year I'm stopping. Everything with this product is extra. Their blackberry version used to be free, now it is extra. They started to bring out all sort of accessory maps, then they stopped. The icon libraries used to be included now I don't think they even exist. Mindmanager for Mac has never been nearly as good as the windows version, much less offer mac features. And now I discovered it can't even import old .mmp mindmap and I have to try and load them on some old windows solution. I've had it with Mindjet.

I was using this program just 4 weeks in test period. Worked well and I like it. For my only private use it's too expensive.

I've tried using the mac version to replace ithoughtsX due to the extra features; booooooy, you've dealing with constant crashes and it just doesn't work on mac, period. It's complete crap. Not to mention it is extremely slow and unresponsive. If you're trying to do a serious and larger project, stay away from it.

It could be the best of its kind, but it's amazing how it didn't evolve much through all the versions! The good side is that mind maps are compatible from version 6 to 10, but still no default font size for notes, and the size of the notes panel is still not remembered between sessions… :-/ I had the occasion to recently test version 10, but if you don't use anything cloudy, I haven't seen any improvement.

Well, it's worse than what I thought: a problem already present in the last versions 9.x is still there! You can't change a font to bold in some notes (not all) from the menu Format or the Font panel! The last version without that bug is v9.0.194...

v11 got even worse! Still same issues/unimprovements but with larger icons in the toolbar (the "small icons" setting doesn't seem to work on the versions I've tried) and fonts looking blurred! :-o
There's an anti-aliasing checkbox in the prefs, but it's totally horrible when it's unchecked.
I'm still wondering how they can ask nearly 200 bucks and still neglect their app in such an obvious way...

Well, it's clearly overpriced for a home user, but I haven't found a better organization tool yet. It's absolutely not perfect, I haven't figured out how to set a default notes font! (I frankly think they have forgotten it, though you can set a default document, which is supposed to keep the other settings — by the way, it would really be of an easier use if one could chose in a list all the fonts and colors for a given type of items, then save that list as the default settings!) I also regret that you can only link a single document or folder to an item. But all in all, it's a real "mind manager", it would be nice to make a lite version for the average home user, though.

MindNode Lite is a really nice and free text-only alternative, but with no external links and no notes. (you have to find non-MAS versions googling ;-) The pro version has files and folders links trough drag and drop, selected text related weblink (a bit tricky in my opinion, but could be interresting) — and it costs only 10$!

Hey! I've just discovered Xmind, which is nearly equal to MindManager and FREE!!! It also imports MindManager maps. http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/24921/xmind

I tried - really tried to get this to work because I have to deal with people using Mind Manager on Windows from time to time, but was frustrated with the constant crashes on Lion, so went looking for something that would allow me to import and export Mind Manager files, and found NovaMind. Wow, what a brilliant product! Their layout options and design flexibility put Mind Manager to shame, and their support staff are very helpful. And now I'm finding that quite a few of the people I am doing business with are trying NovaMind for Windows and several have switched there too. I had used NovaMind 4 in the past, which was OK, but with v5 they have raced past Mind Manager. I understand that Mind Manager have patched the instabilities in their product, but for me it was too late - I had already switched to NovaMind, and am not intending to come back.

This updates my previous post. They've now fixed the crashes and it works well. While it's still not as powerful as their Windows version from years ago, it has certainly gotten better. It imports and exports to iThoughtsHD for the iPad through Dropbox. This is more a matter of iThoughtsHD be compatible with many desktop mind mappers than Mindjet having any export to iThoughtsHD. That said, any mind map I created or modified with iThoughtsHD used to crash, but now it doesn't so I'm happy. For the future, I'd like them to add the ability to open up multiple mind maps - side by side and tile them. This is something they had in their Windows version years ago. I'd like to see them add a Gantt chart for the future. They have this on their current Windows version. For now, I'm content. It works! Don

Mindjet acknowledges that they have problems with Lion, but this is the worst crap implementation of software I have seen in 30 years. Until they get it right, don't waste your time or money on this. BTW, I've been using Mindjet for about 8 or more years too so I don't say this lightly.

Does MindManager really require Java on 10.7 (Lion)?

I don't know, but I do know it's so buggy with Lion that now it crashes within seconds of opening and trash a file that I had put about a dozen hours into. I can't even open that file now with my Windows version of Mindjet. For now, stay away from it if you value your sanity.

Update - 8-17-11: Mindjet posted a fix. So far, it seems to indeed fix the constant crashing and the toolbar disappearing. So you might want to download the trial as of today. If this holds true, then I would probably bring my star rating to a 3 to maybe 4 stars, but I'll want to try it for at least a week.

Update 8-17-11: They have fixed the past crashes. It works well now. I can even import and export to iThoughtHD for my iPad (through DropBox). This was key for me. I'd give it 4 to 5 stars now. I hope they add Gantt charts in the future. That would round out this product nicely. Don
