Thursday, January 8th, 2009 - NovaMind Mind Mapping Software
NovaMind Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of iBlueSky integration. This allows creation of Mind Maps in iBlueSky on the iPhone or iPod Touch, which can be sent by email to anyone on the iPhone contact list, and opened directly in NovaMind for further editing and refinement.

Having iBlueSky Mind Mapping software available in your pocket on iPhone or iPod touch means that the user has at their fingertips (literally) the ability to:

  • create to-do lists whilst in the moment so as to avoid forgetting anything

  • take notes in meetings where there is no laptop available

  • jot down ideas as they arise, and organize them

  • be productive anywhere and everywhere, in those spare moments waiting in line etc.

  • solve problems and make decisions using Mind Mapping techniques, at any time

  • brainstorm in places where it would be impractical to take a laptop

  • summarize and memorize information no matter where you are

Gideon King, founder of NovaMind said: "We are very excited about the possibilities that this integration of NovaMind and iBlueSky brings. Late last year we surveyed our customers, and one of the most common requests for new capabilities was for integration between the Mac and Windows versions of NovaMind and an iPhone Mind Mapping solution. We feel very fortunate to have been able to develop a very close working relationship with Tenero Software, the developers of the top Mind Mapping application for the iPhone."

At the moment, the communication is one way, but Andrew Ebling, founder of Tenero Software says "by the end of January, we should have both directions working via our import/export web service".

There are many benefits of being able to transfer Mind Maps to NovaMind, because NovaMind allows the user to:

  • Use different branch shapes and styles, and add images and adornments to branches

  • Have full control over the color of the branches

  • Add notes and hyperlinks to the branches

  • Add task and resource information

  • Give presentations directly from Mind Maps

  • Export to other programs such as MS Word, Powerpoint, MS Project and Merlin

  • ...and have all the capabilities of NovaMind to create stunning looking and powerful Mind Maps

"We believe that the benefits for both the iBlueSky and NovaMind users are huge, and are just really glad to have the opportunity to be able to provide this amount of value to them" says Mr King.

About Mind Mapping

Mind Maps are diagrams that work the way people think — they organize the information in the same way our brains organize information. They make it easy to understand, remember, and communicate complex information.

Our brains like thinking in pictures. The smooth curves and colorful pictures used in Mind Mapping create powerful images for your brain to remember.

Mind Maps cater to both logical left brain thinking and pictorial right brain thinking at the same time, which makes them a very good way of storing and recalling information, presenting things to other people, and brainstorming new ideas.
