For the longest time, I've used Mind Mapping as a way to brainstorm, plan small scale projects, map out the flow of papers, reports and books. Although I've tried a number of different Mind Mapping products over time, I come back to MindJet
's MindManager. MindJet. The company has just released Version 9 for Mac and iPhone/iPad users.
The product is well integrated into the environment making it possible for people to collect, analyze and present ideas by starting with a mind map and then moving those ideas into a presentation or document.
I can't wait to try the new version on my system.
