"An essential piece of kit for complex research projects"
Highly-customisable, I use this for most writing, brainstorming and research tasks in my everyday work as a historian. Allows me to keep track of the processes that are going on in my head in a more structured way. Can be as complex I like.
Steep learning curve, but that's to be expected from a product with so much customisability. Images for map-view would be appreciated, but I think they're coming. Very few cons, I have to say.
Absolutely worth the investment. Excellent online support on the forums and extremely useful weekends with other tinderbox users which really help in making it all work for the tasks that matter to you. Serious researchers using Macs should strongly consider getting this. If you're not using macs, consider switching over in order to use Tinderbox.
