Mindjet MindManager 6 Mac

Mindjet today released Mindjet MindManager 6 Mac for Mac OS X, which iit says allows individuals and teams to visually connect and synthesize ideas. The new application brings visual "mapping" to Mac users, including marketing professionals, media content providers, students, faculty and administrators. Built using Apple's Xcode development environment and Cocoa frameworks, MindManager 6 Mac is a Universal Binary application that runs natively on Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs. Users can jumpstart new projects or plans by first capturing the interaction of brainstorming sessions as well as develop their thinking by attaching or linking to a wide range of information types, including web sites, email addresses, documents and audio, video or image files. The software also offers Spotlight integration. Pricing starts at $230 for a single-user license.

"One of the biggest challenges companies face is finding better ways to stimulate and harness innovative thinking," said Mindjet CEO Robert Gordon. "The problem is that most technology is so relentlessly linear and text-driven that it actually hinders creative thinking. Mindjet, like Apple, offers users another way of working that supports the visual, nonlinear way people actually think. MindManager 6 Mac sparks new ideas--and helps quickly turn those ideas into blueprints for action."

The map interface enables users to create assignments and due dates to quickly implement those ideas. Offering cross-platform file format support, it enables users to share anything from plans and marketing campaigns to lecture notes and research reports with both Mac and Windows users.

"We're thrilled that Mindjet has brought its powerful mind mapping software to the Mac," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "MindManager 6 Mac takes advantage of Mac OS X 'Tiger' innovations such as Spotlight to organize new ideas quickly and harness the creativity of the Mac community."
