Editors' review

Mindjet MindManager is a unique program aimed at business people keeping track of complicated projects with objectives that change on the fly. While this program offers users a chance to streamline their world, it is not something people can leap directly into and operate.

This program's main objective is project management. The goal is to provide a free-flowing chart, making even the most complex goals visible. This is accomplished through a flexible set of tools to map agendas, priorities, people working on the project, deadlines, and more, all with the ability to update and change.

MindManager is a complicated program that will take many hours of practice to perfect. While it is organized like Microsoft Office programs and may be semi-intuitive, there are so many options, that a new user may be lost. Fortunately, the program comes with a helpful tutorial that walks you through the many options available.

MindManager has the ability to really help users get organized, but even with the tutorial, the sheer number of commands and buttons can be overwhelming. We would have liked to see a slightly longer trial period than the standard 30 days, just so users could get their bearings using the tool. In addition, the flow chart the program creates may be unlike anything co-workers have used and will take time on their side to understand what each box, line, and symbol mean. However, if you are looking for a dynamic way to organize projects and are willing to put in the work, MindManager could be the answer.

    Version: Mindjet MindManager 10.0.445

    Pros

    App looks interesting, especially with Evernote I'm a MindNode user and this looks like a good next step in evolution.

    Cons

    Was about to try it online with Evernote, but in reading T&Cs, you authorize irrevocable rights to anything you upload. Am I wrong here? No way I will take that on.
