New ConceptDraw MINDMAP/Evernote applet falls short I was recently excited to learn that CS Odessa has released an app in its Solution Park called Note Exchange that enables users of ConceptDraw MINDMAP program to send part or all of their mind maps to Evernote – my favorite writing platform and personal information capture tool.

TPAssist Limited recently announced the launch of a new MindManager add-in called TPAssistCapture , which enables you to quickly capture ideas, tasks, notes and next actions and send them to the mind maps that you use to manage them. I recently evaluated this program, and was pleasantly surprised with its power and flexibility. When you first install TPAssistCapture, it asks you to create any “quick links map” in MindManager, which defines the categories and tags actually used to classify your tasks, notes and ideas, and where items tagged with each category should be sent.

Ignited Software recently released version 2.0 of ThinkDigits, a unique combination of calculator and mind mapping application for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The first version focused more on calculation than visual mapping, so I haven’t covered it in this blog before.
Last year, Mindsystems launched Amode, a new program that took visual mapping in an exciting new direction. More of a flexible information management tool than a mind mapping program, it enbled users to represent information in several different contexts, rather than force-fitting it into a single visual mapping model.
