After meticulously testing our new Mac product internally, we’re finally ready to share it with our users. Our Mac mind mapping software is now available for download at MindMaple.com, or by clicking the button below.
We’re always eager to hear feedback from our users, so please send any comments, questions or bug reports to mac -at- mindmaple.com.
It’s that time of year again. Summer is winding down, we’re getting our last few heatwaves before the leaves begin to turn and the temperature drops to a moderate degree. With Labor Day rapidly approaching, many of us will attend and host end-of-summer parties with friends and families.
I used MindMaple to build a menu and help narrow down my dish options. By inputting about 15 different appetizers, drinks, entrees and desserts, I was able to make my final selections easily.
Download the template below for some inspiration (or just to grab these amazing recipes). Photos are property of their respective owners, who have been linked in the template for your reference.
Ask and you shall receive. MindMaple for OS X will be out later this summer, but soon we’ll be opening up beta testing to eager early adopters. To be notified, please fill out the following form below, or head to our Facebook page and select the OS X Beta Test tab. As soon as we upload the beta version to our website, we’ll email everyone who signs up.
Students and instructors: you’ve made it. It’s finally summer. Congratulations on finishing another successful semester/quarter. You’ve got at least two months of freedom ahead of you, and staying productive with few obligations can be very difficult.
Using a handy mind mapping software like MindMaple for Windows or iPad, lay out your many options. We’ve created a template to get you started with a few ideas on staying productive in your downtime.
This summer, your options are endless, but it’s important to use your time wisely and continue to build upon your current skill set.
Finding a job is one of the standard options. Summer jobs can often be in short-supply, but many places hire short-term positions. Use any of the sites listed in the template, or apply at your local movie theatre or amusement park. Seasonal workers are always needed.
Get an internship. If you’re in college, or close to it, a internship is one of the best ways to gain new skills and hone in on your current set. The closer you are to completing your undergrad, the more important it is to consider this option, especially considering the high competition for entry-level jobs.
Volunteer. Giving back to your community is one of the best things you can do this summer. Not only is it incredibly helpful to many organizations with limited budgets, it’s beyond rewarding to know you’ve made a difference.
Take a course at your community college or local community center. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to cook, or maybe sculpture has always piqued your interest, there’s no better time to enroll in a class you may not be able to during the school year.
Last, but certainly not least, read that novel you’ve been putting off. Review the lists linked in the template for good places to start, or ask a friend for recommendations. Many students and instructors find it difficult to squeeze leisurely reading into their packed schedules; using summer vacation to turn a few hundred – or thousand – pages is a wise decision.
What are your plans for staying productive this summer? Did you procrastinate on spring cleaning?
If you missed our announcement earlier this month, the new collaborative version of MindMaple has officially been released. If you downloaded MindMaple v1.6 before May 24th, your software may contain a few bugs – and we are truly sorry for the inconvenience. We rolled out the patched version (1.61) on May 24th, and it is available for download here.
If you missed the news altogether, our newest version of MindMaple allows users to collaborate on mind maps in real-time. Using MindMaple v1.61 and Google Drive, you can work on projects, study guides, notes, quarterly plans and more with your peers and colleagues. Simply save your mind maps to your Google Drive account and you can access them from any computer with our mind mapping software.
Both MindMaple Free and Pro have the collaborative function, but you will need a Google account to utilize it. You can sign up for a Google account here, and download MindMaple here.
