Update - Jan 30 update breaks app

After the Jan 30, 2014 update the program crashes immediately upon opening. Great when it worked - waste of money now. Program is not useful when a map cannot be saved and recalled. Looked all over their website. Looks like you can only export and import - and the import never works. Their tech support is unresponsive and their website's support section has no references to the Windows 8 version.

Coming from iThoughts

I have been looking for a comparable mapping tool to iThonghtsHD ever since I have switched to my Surface Pro. NovaMind is the best tool I have come across for Metro or Windows. At first glance, the interface seems intuitive and for the most part works as expected. There are some limitations that I am hoping that will be addressed in upcoming versions. Use of personal images as nodes is cumbersome, the images have to be first imported into the image library first. Exporting to other formats and Importing from other formats is limited. iThoughtsHD has a wide range of export/import options. Support or other WebDAV or cloud storage services besides Skydrive would be nice. Finally the implementation of Pen support is the most disappointing. It is very difficult to even select and drag nodes using a stylus. And, there is not support for the secondary button. Really hoping NovaMind gets better, I don't think iThoughts is coming to Metro anytime soon.

Needs urgent file attachment (not only url)

nice apps with cool features, but lacks insertion of images and file links/attachments. Any project definition, mind mapping includes gathering of files (text, powerpoint, excel, images, videos, etc, etc)

Finally, efficient and intuitive

I've used mind mapping tools for years and this app for only $14.99 is outstanding. I can focus on my thoughts without interruption by clumsy keystrokes or other functions to add branches etc.. The copy paste to MS Office programs is clean and easy and the sync to SkyDrive is a breeze. Highly recommend this tool

This is a great application. Easy to use, great interface, packed with tools, and very clean looking. This application is well worth the money. It would be perfect for a brainstorming meeting on a projector.

Great software but...

The basic software is great. The only problem that I see is that there is not way to manage maps in folders. just one big "gallery". I have a lot of maps from another program (iThoughts) and can't use them all because of that. Besides that - the interface is a bit problematic when every touch creates a shape. all in all - the best mind map software for windows 8.

Mixed Results

Nova Mind is one of the best mind-mapping tools I have used. However, I am experiencing a problem getting the program to open in from the Windows 8 tile/icon and cannot connect with customer support to get the problem fixed. A full-featured program with all the bells and whistles is basically useless when you cannot open the program! Very poor tech/customer support!

A nice mindmapper

Really a very nice, stable app. Does what it says it can do very well. Backup to skydrive works well. Only noticeable need is the ability to add notes to individual bubbles / ideas. Otherwise, its rock solid. Give me notes and this is a five star app.

Productive stable app

Good mind mapping tool. Has its share of bugs but not annoying. Need read only mode for presentations. Need ability to add notes or post it kind of notes or callouts
