The best of the freeware mindmapping apps IMO, covers the basics very well.

The author is responsive to emails and suggestions, and I look forward to seeing how this app develops.

There are a few $100+ full-featured mindmapping apps that are very feature-rich, but I just want something that does the basics very well at a freeware/shareware price.

This is an extremely promising app. The main feature of the app is its ability to automatically sort and group keywords for you, presenting them in a collapsible outline-type view that frees you from having to outline yourself. The flip side of course is that you must tag your entries appropriately. Performance with large number of entries does not seem to be a problem on my MacBook.

I have always envisioned having a notes/ideas program that was essentially unstructured, yet allowed you to process or view your data in different ways. The way this program works largely allows you to do this. This is a very sparse and simple app. In general this is a very good thing- this is a far cry from kitchen sink-type apps like Circus Ponies Notebook or AquaMinds NoteTaker, but runs nice and lean. A couple of extra small features here and there would help maximize the usefulness of the app IMO.

The main thing I would like to see is better tag management features, since tags are so important in SlipBox. Renaming or deleting tags (as you can with labels in GMail), and being able to batch process entries would greatly improve usability. The ability to assign tags to multiple marked/selected entries is important for people importing lots of information from other note/PIM apps. I have literally hundreds of entries in my old app, and not being able to apply even some general tags to batches of related entries is a problem.

I waver between giving this app 4 and 5 stars. With some extra polish it is definitely a 5 star app, but the promise alone warrants the rating IMO.

GREAT little freeware app that does more than many pay programs, and does it well.
You can create a simple list or arrange in an outline format (folders, indent/outdent), with text notes and color labels. Easy drag and drop and multiple-select, and great menu bar integration. Printing and multiple export options round out the features.

I would love to see the following features added to further increase usability-
1. Tab and shift-tab to indent/outdent items.
2. A hot key to bring down the task list.

I give the program a 4 in Features only compared to pricier, larger programs. I think the feature set is actually perfect for my needs.
