I got a nexus 7 & was looking forward to using mindjet on it. The only problem is that I need a mindjet account. I DONT WANT A MINDJET ACCOUNT. I DONT STORE THAT STUFF IN THE CLOUD ANYWAYS. I PURCHASED THINKING SPACE.

Their support isnt much help either. They could only tell me that I didn't have an account.

If you are an existing user, and already have Mindjet for Android installed, you are not required to sign for a Mindjet account. There is a 'Not Now' link at the bottom of the first promo screen which we inserted especially so that existing users would not be forced to sign up for an account. If you click that link, it will take you directly to the app, and you can use it as before.

If you are installing it on a new device, you do have to sign up for the account, but the app is in no way restricted to that account--in other words after you sign up, if you prefer not to use it, you are free to use it locally, or with Dropbox. Obviously,we hope that users opt to try it, but don't penalize them if they don't. We feel that the tradeoff between getting a feature-rich, well-regarded app for free and being asked to sign up for the other parts of the Mindjet offering is a fair one, but recognize not everyone agrees.
