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!

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.

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.
