MindJet MindManager iPhone Application

At long last, my prayers are answered and MindJet have today launched their Mind Mapping application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

I am a devout MindManager user and have been for years. Over the past few months I have been using MindMeister more and more, mainly because of the rather cool ability to syn between their awesome web app and the iPhone Application.

I have just purchased and downloaded the MindJet Mind Manager application.

My initial thoughts are mixed. The layout and look of the application is great. I must admit that I am not so sure on the way you enter topics. You jump from the main window to a separate entry window where the details are entered for each topic. Do I prefer the much simpler on screen method as used by MindMeister and iBlueSky?

There are a lot more bells and whistles in this app over the competition. But, I normally use the iPhone as a capturing device where my Mind Maps are very basic, just capturing the key concepts. I normally refine the Mind Map at a later date on my Mac.

The transfer/sync ability is definitely not up to the same standard as MindMeister. It would be great to see the ability to sync my Mind Maps with the desktop version of Mind Manager but I am sure this will be out in a later release.

Here is a little video published by MindJet.

I know this is the first release of the software and I hope it will improve because I really do want to be able to use this and get the most out of this application.

I will be putting this through its paces over the next few days and I will return back with a more in depth review.

Looking forward to hearing any comments that you may have.

    MindMeister is great!!! I discovered the Web Based mindmeister two months ago. Since that im rarely using mindjet. I love the mindmeister abilities to Share Maps with collegues. Now with iPhone Version mindmeister is definitely the Best mindmapping Tool.

    The iPhone app is pretty nifty, but I’ve never found a practical use for mind-mapping software. I’m probably old fashioned, but I still prefer to draw things on a notepad.

    If you do alittle search, you would find this app called iThoughts on the app store. cost 7.99, same as mindjet

    does xmmap as well, same as mindjet
    does todo listing as well, same as mindjet

    essentially mindjet copy their idea!
