I'm currently using Inspiration as my mind mapping tool and I understand that y'all don't think that much of that particular program, much prefering Mind Manager.
I'm a bi-platform kinda guy; Macs at home and PCs at the office.
I need a program in which I can make a mind map on one platform and have it transfer transparently to the other, both ways. All the Microsoft Office suite programs do this with no problem, as does Inspiration.
When I get on the MindJet forums, the comments about their support of MindManager on the Mac is NOT very encouraging, in fact the comments are not good at all.
Any suggestions from the group? No matter how good Mind Manager is on the PC platform, if I can't also use it on my Mac it's a no-go.
Will, the mind-mapping set up I use could be helpful to you. I use a mac at home and a PC at work. I use the program XMIND which is free and very useful (available for mac and PC). I keep my mind map files in a dropbox folder which syncs in the cloud. This way I have up to date maps where ever inspiration hits me.
