Pensioner’s Thoughts.


As an old person on several medications I find I walk from one room to another and forget what I was doing. Simple mind helps me keep order in what I am doing, in projects around the house, and in my shed. It is too easy to just say “I’m getting old" and sit back. Simple mind gets me back to what I was doing and at the end of the day I feel I have achieved some thing. The layout is easy to follow and it is easy to learn how to use SimpleMind. I can only imagine how much more help it will be for a project manager, writer, teacher or other professional who at the start of a new project needs to put their ideas together.

Terrific for University Studies


My students are often asked to develop theoretical and conceptual frameworks, and SimpleMind Lite is excellent for this.
The expandable text boxes and colouring options allows students to expand their thinking digitally, in a way teachers can understand clearly and appreciate.
Why spend hundreds and thousand of words explaining a topic or concept? Conceptual maps like Simplemind accomplish the same task quickly and effectively.



This is fantastic and has made life so much easier as a student. The only thing that has stopped me from purchasing the pro version, which I would love to use, is the lack of iCloud syncing. I have a iMac and a macbook pro, would love for things to sync seamlessly without having to share on dropbox and google etc, which is making me hesitate.
