Is this still mindmapping?
The user has limited possibilities in placing topics where he or she wants. The are roughly four positions where topics can be placed (right, bottom, left, top). Strangely enough the topics on top and bottom are displayed rather as an organogram instead of a radial mindmap. Other mindmapping solutions don’t seem to have this (problem).

Since some days I’m not only the owner of an iPad but also of iMindMap Mobile HD (V1.0.0) – the new mind map application from ThinkBuzan. Within just a few minutes after receiving the app the first branches were made and WOW!, this is mind mapping as Tony Buzan preaches it!
