Several years ago, a Swedish developer called Realize AB created a plug-in for the popular MindManager mind mapping software program that transformed it into a powerful brainstorming tool. TheRealizer enabled users to set up new challenges, define them, view random idea prompts and then evaluate their ideas.
Not surprisingly, Realize AB has decided, with the help of some investor funding, to adapt TheRealizer into a separate brainstorming tool. Effective Mind is a simple, effective ideation tool that is still in beta, but shows a lot of promise. To showcase its basic functionality, I created a brief silent video:
Considering the fact that there aren’t many brainstorming software programs available today, it’s refreshingto see Realize AB investing in Effective Mind. I can’t wait to see how this tool evolves.
