Another Mind Mapper

Here’s another addition to the directory of mind mapping software I’ve been building: Mind Pad, launched today by AKS Labs. I haven’t played very much with it, but while it starts out as a straightforward mind-mapping program, it offers more:

Creating and linking text blocks is easy with Mind Pad. But it can do more. Mind Pad allows you to organize in mind map objects with any properties set. With Mind Pad scripting you can create your own rules for data management and representation.

Mind Pad suggests a new approach to mind mapping. Now, mind map is not just a lot of linked text blocks. Mind Pad allows to create your own frame objects with unique properties that are most suitable for your business. You can organize those objects into some hierarchy or map.

For instance, with Mind Pad Model Editor you can easily create an object called “Contact Person” and assign to it some really useful properties, such as Person name, Company name, Next time to contact date. Then you can create a mind map using “Contact Person” frame object and link new objects with each other showing the relation between your contacts.

Check it out. There’s a trial version, a full copy costs $60.

  1. The mind map is a good method but I prefer to use is the mind graph method that has got visio stencils to create projects

  2. The following link for MindMapper found on your web site http://www.mindmapper.com should be listed as http://www.mindmapperusa.com

    Thank you for updating this change,

  3. I would love to see more of mindmaping, especially ontological hierarchy mindmaps. There was one weird aussy site that did it however I can remember the name of it right now.
