Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win a copy of MindBerry!

A few weeks back we dropped word of MindBerry in our BlackBerry App Round-Up. In case you missed it then, MindBerry is mind-mapping software for your BlackBerry. For those who use mind-mapping software regularly, this app is a no brainer to have on your device. When you're on a plane, in a cab or anywhere your laptop/computer isn't available and you have that inspired idea that you need to map out immediately, you'll be glad to have MindBerry in hand. If you're not familiar with mind-mapping, you can learn more about it from this wikipedia page. Features of MindBerry include:

  • Fast, intuitive navigation, MindBerry using the BlackBerry trackball or the numeric keys to navigate from a node to another node.
  • Support Folding/Unfolding with Spacebar key.
  • Use shortcut to access all editing features.
  • Drag and Drop selected nodes
  • Cut'n'Paste selected nodes
  • Scrolling mindmap using Trackball
  • Decorate nodes with icons, colors, fonts, styles.
  • Attach note to mindmap.
  • Can edit long multiline nodes
  • Save and Load mindmaps to/from BlackBerry Media Card or Device Memory
  • Send mindmaps via email.
  • Import and export both Freemind and MindManager.  
Win a Free Copy of MindBerry: At $16.95, MindBerry isn't what you'd call a "cheap" app, but for those who appreciate mind-mapping it's a worthwhile investment. You can download a free trial, and the developer Glam Software has also given us 20 free copies to give away to lucky members of CrackBerry.com. Just leave a comment to this post for your chance to win (entry ends Sunday Midnight PST). And if you're looking for a mind-mapping challenge, I'd love to see your mind maps of how you would best organize our CrackBerry forums!

MindBerry: Mind-Mapping Software for your BlackBerry. Contest: 20 Free Copies to be Won!



I always use Mind Map at home and at work.
This will be a great tool!
Please give it to me!

I use MindManger regularly and would love to have this app to tinker with while away from my netbook.

I'm always having self deluded great ideas. I need this to further my delusions of intellectual grandoise. Please support my OCD!

Oh man, I'm starting school in about a month, this would be so amazing to have for my Design Theory and Creative Writing classes.

i used mindmaps to organized my school notes before. would be great to do it on the blackberry while commuting instead of having to do it on the laptop all the time!

Wish I had this about 2 weeks ago, could of really used it for a new mentoring program I am trying to design for the school I work for. Sounds like a pretty slick app.

...if you dare!

Thanks Crackberry for yet another wonderful contest. Oh, and pick me this time - geesh!

but I have no idea what this app does, what it's for or what I will do with it if I win. Still, I love the pretty colours!

I wouldn't mind a copy of this.

I use mindmapping software on my PC, and it's also how I take paper notes. Very effective.


i like this application. however, i've encounter some issues: sometimes the app does not recognize maps i've created and stored on the media card. a reset would resolve this issue. it's a bit annoying.

I wonder if that is an occasional problem in general with the Media card....I have the same issue with videos. BBfile scout can usually find it worst case scenario though.

I'm always looking for a good way to keep organized. And I prefer using my BB to my computer or pen/paper (I ALWAYS have my BB!). PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

I'd love to win this app so I could really put it through its paces in more detail than I have. It's definitely a great way to organize the myriad of projects that I constantly have going on.

I've tried mindmapping software a couple of times and it can be helpful. I find that it requires a different way of thinking about the associated topic to get the most out of it. I'm interested to see how they make this work on a mobile device.

These are great self-brainstorming apps. I've used versions at work on the desktop...but some people won't be happy where there mind takes them. : )

I have ConceptDraw MindMap on my PC, and have always wished for some thing similar in a more portable version.

Who wouldn't want this app... @ just under $17 this app is well worth your money.. But winning this app from crackberry for free is PRICELESS!!! My money's on me winnin' this app.. Just map out my mind and you'll see.. LOL (I know cheesy right?)

Well I have used Mindmap almost forever, hope to see it in action, and maybe win a free copy! ^_^

Thanks Crackberry!

wouldnt mind giving this one a try. ran into a couple of situations lately where this app would have been useful.

this is a really great program. I have it for my pc and its great for brainstorming. Would love one for my new blackberry!

I've always favored this sort of organizing layout! I can't believe there's a piece of software. Simply ingenious!
