"Alan and I both have used Mind Mapping for some years now. And having tried any number of software applications available we felt none truly fit with the way we wanted to mind map," said Susanne Edwards, commercial director of Mode de Vie Limited. "We set about creating our own; one that addressed what we wanted from a mind mapping software application, offered an uncluttered user interface, yet with powerful features and at a price tag that we felt was more widely affordable. It has been a challenging two years, with much of our lives consumed with our venture. But it is a joy to be Mind Mapping with MyThoughts for Mac and we hope others get as much pleasure from using it as we do."

As a perfect complement to Apple's iLife suite, iPhoto is seamlessly integrated into MyThoughts' built-in Media Browser, giving direct drag and drop access to media assets. Additionally, the application ships with over 3000 images and icons to illustrate Mind Maps, offering users ample flexibility and creativity. The MyThoughts for Mac Print Manager makes printing Mind Maps hassle free, even when printing over multiple sheets.
