Great Mind Mapping tool

It is a great tool for mind mapping as well as integrating research. It feels a little clunky at first. Once you get the hang of it, it actually comes in handy.

I can see how it works. It looks good.

The GUI organization is a bit awkward for me as I think in terms of hierarchical terms..., nesting and so forth. I need to keep up with the trend, so I'm going with it.

Lame

I downloaded the free trial and got the error message: something went wrong while opening KnowledgeBase Builder. I upgraded for .99 due to having windows 10 and still got the same message. There were no additional features either. This is a waste of time and money.

Hi Alexander, this is a fault of your Windows App Store installation. Please uninstall the KnowledgeBase Builder App, restart Windows and afterwards press the Windows key together with the R key (this opens the Windows excecute dialog). Then enter wsreset and press the OK button. This will reset the Windows Store cache and restart the Windows Store. Then download and install the KnowledgeBase Builder again.

Easy, intuitive, and useful!

Got a framework for a complex situation set up in seconds. The key concepts are ready to go. Great to be able to add links and images to collateral documents stored elsewhere.

I can not purchase it!

It says that something went wrong. Error on purchase! You suck! Same problem with few more apps that I wanted to buy today. Microsoft, you are pathetic! To all Microsoft people who made this software (windows 10 ) and apps you should start new business. Like cleaning public toilets. I want to come over there and start slapping your faces with a smelly nasty fish. •••

Dear Kristaq, this seams to be a problem with your Windows App Store. You can try the following: Restart your PC, then press the Windows key together with the R key (this opens the Windows excecute dialog). Enter wsreset and press the OK button. This will reset the Windows Store cache and restart the Windows Store. Then try to download the KnowledgeBase Builder again.

To Do List Design for the Mind Mapper

KnowledgeBase Builder is great. I hate all things linear. This app lets me mind map my to do list.

Comprehensive mindmapping app

Very easy to get started doing a basic map. Read the developers website for additional tools that may not be readily obvious.

Buggy and Frustrating but a good First Program

After installing KnowledgeBase Builder, I was initially excited and spent a number of hours working on a chapter for my finance class; however, the next morning when I tried to access that file from my SkyDrive, the data was gone. Apparently I had not pressed the save button. One would think there might be an autosave feature that would have bailed me out of that mess. No warning appeared telling me that I might lose my data. And, so, the program is a bit unforgiving. Also, I lost data while I was building my map: each time I would add a new item, it would transfer my notes from the last item along with it. But, when I deleted the notes, it removed them from the previous item, as well. Some trial-and-error allowed me to figure some of it out, but it was really frustrating. I like the idea of this program and, so I recommend it because of its price as a nice way to get an intro to the genre of mind-mapping software.

Great MindMap tool on Win8

Great design, Very decent user interface. Smooth navigation. What I like most is the visualization of tags, notes, and pop-up description on the nodes. This should be the standard of application if Microsoft wants more users to use modern app in Win8. Great work, developers.

Great experience

The visual appeal is nice! Just putting the map on a tilted plane with shadows works wonders for my orientation to the data. The drop shadows are nice. I would like to see the developer keep pushing the mapping approach and make this work like a touch friendly GIS mapping program. I think it would be great to zoom, pan and orbit the data to further strengthen the dimensional association with list items.

App details


Version notes

New: Mind maps can be created automatically from Wikipedia articles. To do so, the app first performs a Wikipedia search for relevant articles. Then it downloads the articles together with all images and arranges them in a mind map. The internet access right is only needed for downloading Wikipedia articles. Items can be expanded and collapsed in order to show the description text in the diagram. We're working hard on building the best mind and concept mapping program ever, but we need your help. If you have any suggestions for further updates, please let us know. We will do our best to include them in one of the next updates. In case of problems, please contact us directly by e-mail. Only then we will have the opportunity to respond to your questions and help you solving your problem. Thank you.
