Overview of Mindjet’s new product launch for 22 September 2011

These maps are my notes plus a few personal comments  and questions. Come back again at the end of tomorrow and I will provide some links to relevant information.

My personal recommendation to you is, if you have MindManager 9 and  particularly if you have an older version is order the upgrade now. It’s £79 plus VAT, it will be £99 from the 22nd September. If you don’t have MindManager 9 Windows, buy it now for £199 plus VAT with a free upgrade to MindManger Professional 2012 because from the 22nd it will be £299 plus VAT.  Please contact me for more information on how to order. 🙂

    I just commented on Connect free version in the MindManager Yahoo group.
    The response is relevant here.

    “I have not seen the Connect product but from data received so far:

    You get:

    – one folder
    – 1 gb store
    – You get a client based MindManager editor for free.
    – You can access and edit your maps via any client: iPad, iPhone, Browser and
    MindManager 2012. Android and Mac (later).
    – You can invite other Connectors as guests to your folder or hopefully just
    specified files in your folder!
    – You can collaborate with these Connectors on a map simultaneously”

    You will be able to sign up to Connect at the Mindjet web site on the 22nd.

    Some of these features do differentiate it from DropBox, Sugar Sync, Evernote and other file sharing systems. They may not be that different from those already offered by many online mind mapping applications e.g. MindMeister, Mindomo, Mind42 etc.
