Is MindManager fading?

There is no metro UI and no support for multi-device use. This leaves much room for the competition. Why all the focus on project management?

I agree on your request for multi-device use... I also agree that some competition is closing the gap in functionality rather fast.

However, If Mindjet ever decides to take on that horrible Metro UI, they will loose a lot of dedicated and loyal customers and partners including me.

I use MindManager a lot for project management because it supports the whole process from idea to solution in one tool.
In fact I found that in my case there is no added value for more expensive products like MS-Project.

MindManager for Windows  has always been at the corporate end of the market, and has focused on project management since MindManager 2002. Project management is where a lot of tangible value can be demonstrated.
Multi-platform support can come at the price of a compromised feature set due to UI limitations. MindManager has more in common with MS Office applications than the quick and simple mind mapping tools.

This means users like me that value the possibility of making notes in a well managed and organized way have to look for other options if one ones to embrace mobility.

The touch support is excellent and been part of MM for years. It would not require much to simplify also the UI to thruly support handheld devices.

As the corporate workers are getting more mobile also Office is moving thowards simplfied UIs (look for project Gemini of Microsoft) I hope also Mindmanager will.
