I presume most of you know him, I refer to Philippe Boukobza and his fantastic blog Co-Nectar. Philippe is a rerefence in the mind mapping world and he is also a friend of mine. That's one reason for being lucky!

In his latest post he talks a little bit about different applications to draw. Fifty-three's Paper (we have already talked about this fantastic application in the blog) and Tayasui Sketches, another awesome application for drawing in the tablet world. But thr most important topic he talks is about using these software tools to create your icon's library for your software-made maps. That turns out to be really important to me because it's an open door to transform your software-made mindmaps a little bit more hand-crafted ones.

Using your personal icons (made/drawn by you) customize pretty much your maps and really helps you be much more focused on the topic.

For obvious reasons icons are extremely important parts in a map, because they are really what keep us our right hempisphere really focus in the topic and what sparks our creativity.

Hello, may I share a little words about mind mapping software's? I have a software that you might be able to try for your blog. It's called the OKMindmap. If you go into okmindmap.com you'll be able to see it. It's an HTML5 based browser software which means you don't need any installations like plug-in's. It can use a lot of technologies like iframe, importing image, videos and also embedding.

Hi Roy,

I just discovered your resourceful website and would like to point on BigHairyGoal for MacOS X. It's an alternative approach to classic mind mapping and you may be interested in how it works.

From my website: "BigHaryGoal is a mindmapping, brainstorming and progress tracking tool for creatives and software developers. It's build to be simple and effective to use, so you can just let go your flow of creativity."

I would highly appreciate if you could take a look at it or even write a review.

Feel free to ask any questions.

kind regards,

- berbie.

It is an ALL IN ONE
- Mind Mapping app, Outliner app, Visual Notes app and Visual Task Manager app. It allows users to Visually manage notes,
ideas, mind maps, outlines, checklist and tasks for school, personal and business needs.
We want to promote the mac app first, the iPad second (70% mac 30% iPad) just because of the price
we charge, we get higher ROI on mac. But depending on the forum and keyword we link to the iPad app.
