ThoughtEx – State of the Art Mind Mapping


Recently I had a discussion with Joseph Cooney, one of the creators of Thoughtex Mind Mapping application.

This application  has many unique user features such as:

  • Graphical Concept Maps
  • Rich editing within nodes 
  • Contextual Internet search
  • Simplified approach to file management

It’s also very interesting technically, as it utilises RIA technologies such as:

  • Windows Presentation Foundation
  • Click Once

This sort of thing shows how powerful Click Once can be.

Joseph told me the contextual search utilised the Yahoo mashup Apis for searching as they had quite a good licence.  If you want to do something similar check them out.
