iMindQ reviewed from the author of the Mind Mapping Software Blog

Posted by Magdalena Joveska | Posted in News | Posted on 31-07-2014 | Comments 0

Just after a few months of launching the new iMindQ, we were pleasantly surprised by a quite extensive description and overview of the main functionalities of our software and the new possibilities it offers to mind mappers.

Behind the review written with a substantial merit stands Mr. Chuck Frey, one of the most renowned experts in the category of mind mapping and mind mapping tools that has been focusing in the topic for years.

He started the review by presenting the main functionalities of iMindQ, depicting it with the following words – “iMindQ is a new visual thinking program from Seavus that combines organic mind maps, concept maps, whiteboard space, flowcharts and project planning in a single, easy-to-use program. It gives you more ways to visualize your ideas and information in a single, affordable package.”

After the user interface introduction, the author mentioned the types of diagrams that are supported by this mind mapping solution, quote: “One of the central aspects of iMindQ that Seavus has been promoting is the fact that it goes beyond mind mapping. You can use this program to create:

  •  Mind maps,
  •  Organic mind maps,
  •  White boards (which includes flow charts, concept maps and other types of diagrams),
  •  WBS charts (for project management),
  •  Organizational charts.”

Following the main characteristics of the new mind mapping solution, Mr. Chuck Frey described the easiest way to create and format mind maps within the program, focusing also on the flexibility offered with the vast choice of map parts, along with the customizable icon library.

“The program gives excellent visual feedback as you move topics around; a red line appears where it will “land” if you release the mouse button. Clicking on the blue section of the topic’s quick menu gives you fast access to its properties. There, you can adjust topic shape, fill, color and transparency, adjust line and border color and size, plus change the topic text, image and icon alignment. I tried this with an icon and was satisfies with how easy it was to move it to any one of four positions – no dragging and dropping, just a simple selection from the topic properties dialog box.”

After the characteristics and functionalities focused on creating a mind map, the review goes on with explanation of the creation of flow charts, concept maps, organization charts and other diagrams.

“I created a flow chart in iMindQ, and found the process to be fairly easy. To create your flowchart, you simply drag and drop shapes into the workspace. As you drag successive shapes to create your flowchart, lining them up isn’t a problem, because iMindQ temporarily displays dashed red vertical and horizontal lines to show when shapes are perfectly aligned to each other. That saves a lot of time compared to some diagramming programs, where you are forced to manually align shapes.”

imindq wbs iMindQ reviewed from the author of the Mind Mapping Software BlogA rather useful turn on the project management related features describes iMindQ with the following paragraphs:

“iMindQ enables you to create a project plan called a Work Breakdown Structure, or WBS. Essentially, you take your overall project and break it down into individual tasks. Task data is entered via the “Task Info” panel on the right side of the workspace. It enables you to define start and end dates for tasks, duration, estimated hours, resources, priority level and percentage complete, plus dependencies and constraints.

iMindQ’s Gantt view is well organized and attractive, with a slight 3D effect applied to the horizontal bars that depict start and end dates; embedded within these bands are smaller green lines that show actual progress, based upon the value you entered for percentage complete. Once again, very intuitive.”
