    "An essential piece of kit for complex research projects"

    September 9, 2010  |   By strickvl

    Version: Tinderbox 5.5.4

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Summary

    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.

    "I've used Tinderbox over a year and love it."

    September 8, 2010  |   By smgct

    Version: Tinderbox 5.5.4

    Pros

    Though it does have a steep learning curve, you need not learn everything at once. I found it can be used for simple things, and learning goes along with the ideas to take things further. I wrote stories in it, exported to html for website use.

    Cons

    I would say that the inability to include images is for me its biggest drawback right now. The other thing I'd like to see is guard-field linkability. And yes, it takes a while to explore and discover all its potential, but that doesn't preclude use.

    Summary

    I've found the Eastgate folk to be extremely helpful and courteous, and quick-acting when contacted. There is also a forum for help with the designers themselves checking in, and there are some great resources at the Eastgate site. They are constantly tweaking and bettering the program, which may be annoying, but it means that bugs are fixed, upgrades are made, and new versions are free for a year, very reasonable after that.

    Overall, I think Tinderbox can be just about as simple or as complex as a project demands.

    "Used to be a fan, no longer use it."

    August 19, 2010  |   By plindsay.0

    Version: Tinderbox 5.5.4

    Pros

    Links. Quirky charm, nice mindmap-style view and other views of notes, programmable links, friendly web-forum and email support. External files can be linked to notes within tinderbox file. Mac only.

    Cons

    Support is needed. Expensive. No longer any embedded images. No embedded anything. Few ready-made templates/examples to allow beginners to get started doing something useful. Frustratingly steep learning curve. Did I mention expensive ?

    Summary

    Potentially very powerful. But then so is C++. OK for enthusiasts but I'm not one. Buy it if you want a new hobby.
