Incubator 2.0 for Mac OS X
MindCad has released Incubator 2.0 for OS X, an innovative outlining and brainstorming tool for visual thinkers. Version 2.0 runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs, and offers better integration with Safari, the Address Book, and the Desktop. Incubator, the successor product to Pyramid, adds collapsible branches, more control over layout, a view of the underlying data, directly adjustable annotation width, a new inspector panel, and drag-import of linked URLs, desktop documents and vCards. Incubator allows text and images to be placed anywhere on multiple worksheets that grow dynamically in all four directions. Elements can then be arranged in visual hierarchies, and optionally linked to external documents and web pages. The full version is $50; a 30-day trial is available online.
