What a great way to map out your thoughts

I am new to this program, used the lite version for about six months and then upgraded to the full version just before year end 2017. The solution is fantastic for anyone who “thinks” for a living and needs a tool to help them more easily brainstorm, deconstruct, massage, and rationalize ideas or organize them ino a cohesive visually appealing structure. I use it to capture key concepts for writing projects, build out work flows and processes, and also create and synthesize semantic relationships between topics or domains of knowledge for AI corpus creation.

Simplemind - Great UX. It just works

SimpleMind works well. Simple, stable steady. Been using it since 2009. Thank you SimpleMind.
