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.
