When the hours are long and ideas fall short

Using a pen and paper can be a drag, especially when we’re so used to tabs, mobiles and laptops. Keeping this in mind, ithoughts has come out with a mind mapping application that kills the need to depend on good ole pen and paper. Even when one would think it highly unlikely without their help to draw a special diagram.

Only iPhones you say?

Fret not, Android and iPad users. Don’t they say “the more the merrier?” Seems pretty much the case here for there isn’t just one mind mapping app available for Android. Mindjet was the first one to be developed for Android and is available for free. Watch this video on task management to know more about the specialty of this app: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNQVKv8wMcU]

SimpleMind came out soon after promising to turn your android device into a brainstorming and idea collection machine. Of course there were several after that, including Mindomo and Mindmeister.
