Tinderbox 4.5 released
Eastgate has announced an update to its Mac OS X application for storing and organizing notes, plans, and ideas. Tinderbox allows users to make a visual map of notes, meaning ideas can be related to each other visually. This mind mapping method of note making allows a user to quickly place ideas down on a board, then take those ideas and organize them into a manner that is understandable to them. Version 4.5 updates the interface with new visuals and functions. Drop shadows can now be added for style (and also can be customized to be tied directly to information in the notes), dividers let users draw lines right in a note, allowing them to link different ideas together. Eastgate has also improved the address-book and vCard integration, with automatic linking.
A single Tinderbox license can be purchased for $229, or a family pack is available for $285.
