Thortspace is turning out to be a bit like Marmite

(And I don’t mean that it tastes disgusting.)

On the one hand:

“I’ll pass on thort, don’t go for subscriptions nor sending data to someone I don’t know. At least with Amazon, Google, Dropbox, Apple or big names there is some level of peace of mind. Don’t like the look either, neither videos/website nor the clunky product itself.”

(see http://www.outlinersoftware.com/topics/viewt/8061/7 )

Or take this review on playstore:

“Just too complicated - way too complicated to do basically nothing”

(see https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=thortspace.thortspace&reviewId=gp%3AAOqpTOG2kJ1Ti_1vPvmwYprCxPDEqYcF_hxzF88gTTeUOHB4mCuoplB6ffQnrNyaADdSEcLLX5xORUhwXp0xT1E )

(No, don’t hold back! Tell us how you really feel.)

On the other hand, here is an email I just received (names removed):

To the thortspace team:::
I want to personally congratulate your team on building what is nothing short of extraordinary in the space of mind mapping.
I have seen a lot of mind mapping tools but the thortspace tool transcends them all — and in a big way.
This tool epitomizes software at its best. Easy to use, easy to learn, and easy to express oneself in.
Thanks again for such a rich user experience.
Warm regards.

If you’d like to make up your own mind — and I mean that literally! :-) — you can download the free Thortspace app (which incidentally will work fine as a standalone app, without any connection to our cloud service — which cloud service, if you do decide you want to use it, as it happens stores all its encrypted data on “big name” Google’s cloud storage) from here:

Install the Free Thortspace App on Windows, Mac, Android, iPad and Linux… The world’s first collaborative 3D mind mapping software. Breakthrough thinking, whenever and wherever it is needed most.
