Incubator for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Mar 7, 2013

For visual thinkers, office suite software typically lacks any tool for mapping or planning. Incubator for Mac performs this task well and has the expected features, albeit at a fairly high price for its limited functions.

Available as a free trial version, Incubator for Mac will not allow you to save and print without a watermark until a $49 payment for the full version is made. The program downloads and installs easily, but without a native installer. The well-guided setup goes quickly despite a lengthy user licensing agreement. The program prompts you initially as to whether you want to be taken to instructions outside of the interface, which is less desirable. The trial version's limits are also clearly explained in this dialog box, and the product appears to have support for updates. Upon launching, the program looks very basic and has unsophisticated graphics, giving it a Spartan look, which is disappointing in light of the full version's price. Adding text boxes is very easy, although the feature to link them together for mapping is not as intuitive and requires consulting the instructions. The program does function well, although for the price, we would have expected more features beyond simple mapping.

Suitable for visual planners, Incubator for Mac is functional but comes with limited features and a rather simple interface with unsophisticated graphics.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Incubator for Mac 3.2.

Developer's Description

An outlining and brainstorming tool for visual thinkers. Text and images can be placed anywhere on multiple worksheets that grow dynamically in all four directions. Elements can then be arranged in elaborate visual hierarchies and, optionally, linked to external documents and web pages.

The software is designed to help people focus on ideas and their underlying relationships, without wasting creative energy on the mechanics of formatting and presentation. Includes Spotlight plug-in. The demo includes an interactive tutorial.
