Download.com Staff Aug 6, 2009

SMART Ideas Concept-Mapping Software offers a surprisingly simple way to create elaborate visual aids. With simple commands and quick results, anyone from teachers to business people will find this useful.

The program's interface may require a trip to the Help file for rookies, but it won't be long before they are working on their own. With simple command icons, an intuitive layout, and fantastic design templates, users will soon feel very comfortable here. The best place to start designing is within a template. The program provides dozens of choices from business-, science-, and productivity-themed pages to create diagrams. With these, users just fill in the details and can make small adjustments to the picture's flow. This is a great way to get started or create work in a hurry. However, users needing to create their own diagram have a great set of tools available by clicking and dragging colorful shapes, various connecting rods, and even inserting pictures or sound. Thanks to its versatility and ease, the program appeals to experienced and rookie diagram creators. The program's finest feature is without a doubt the QuickCreate feature. By clicking on a button and choosing a general shape for your diagram, users fill in information on the fly and the diagram generates itself. This is a great tool for meetings where diagrams must be made in real time.

With great options for all user skill levels, it will not take the full 30-day trial to learn that this is a great download for public speaking.
