You mentioned mindmapping software for the iPhone - well I’d recommend you check out iBlueSky which we launched a couple of months ago.

iBlueSky is the one to get, per the reviews on the App Store and elsewhere

I purchased iBluesky for mindmapping on the iPhone. My initial impressions are good. I’m looking forward to version 1.1 and the promised ability to import mindmaps from the desktop.

I’m another long time Brainforest user STUCK using my Palm!

I’m just trying to figure out a way to EXPORT all my Brainforest files, so I can move to a modern iPhone/Mac equivalent. Having a Mac desktop version is essential, one of the main selling points for the essentially defunct Brainforest!

Any Export suggestions?

Besides OmniFocus, which I’ve tried to like, but don’t really… I found Things and Life Balance which seem to do about the same things as OmniFocus, but with less fuss.

I’ve been looking at Outliner on the AppStore for a long time now. It does now import OPML via their outliner online service. They don’t have a desktop app, only their web service. I imagine that one could continue to use the Brainforest desktop app, and manually import/export, but that’s more pain then I want in a process that is geared towards enhancing productivity ;)

iBlueSky mindmapping software exports OPML and has promised import capability in their next release. It’s been months though.

iThoughts mindmapping has import/export capability via web browser on your LAN, but I haven’t tried it yet.

It might be possible to play around with the OPML export files from Brainforest and try to get Evernote to import them, but Evernote doesn’t have many of the features of a good outliner. You can export the Brainforest tree as a text file, and the data shows, but not as checkable ToDo items

Thank you for your comment. I should point out that iBlueSky is one of the earliest mindmapping apps for the iPhone, not one of the latest. Since I wrote the original post in 2008 November, many more mindmapping apps have been added to the App Store, including:

  • Simple Mind
  • MindMeister (the official app of the SaaS MindMeister)
  • ThinkingMap
  • iThoughts
  • MindNode
  • MindJet (the makers of MindManager on the Mac and Windows)
  • Buzan iMindMap (coming soon per their web site, and maker of iMindMap for Mac, Windows and Linux)
