Visual Bubble is a new website that aims to be the MindManager resources portal. It contains over 100 enhancements for the popular business mapping software, including add-ins, maps, templates, map parts and wizards for MindManager X5 and MindManager 6. An annual subscription of US$17 gives you full access to all of the site’s resources.
My impression? Visual Bubble is a well-done website – very attractive and nicely arranged. There’s no question that it’s a good idea. But it needs more content. Some sections, such as "how tos," only have a handful of resources. But I’m sure that will change over time, as the site’s owners add more content to it. Also, as I tried to navigate from page to page, I kept getting Internet Explorer messages that told me that the page contains both secure and non-secure items, and asked me if I wanted to display the non-secure items. A bit annoying… [note: this has now been fixed – see the comment below]
I look forward to seeing how this site evolves over time, and how many original add-ins and components they plan to roll out. I plan to contact Visual Bubble’s owners to learn more about their plans. I’ll let you know what I find out!
