Are you like me, and spent $5 on Thinking Space Pro (TSP), and now you see in the Android Market that it is no longer going to be supported or developed further because a company named Mindjet has bought out Thinking Space. If you are like me, then I bet you’r just as pissed off as I am about it too. We paid our 5 bucks to have all these features in Thinking Space Pro, only to find out that the company has been bought out, and their once paid app is now offered free under the name Mindjet for Android. If you want to hear the rest of my rant or leave a comment, read on past the break.
Yeah sure they are basically the same with some added extra features in Mindjet like, added icons and markers,performance improvements, and a changed format. (Honestly what does a changed format add for the casual user?) I know companies merge and get bought-out. What I, and plenty other people have a beef about, there was now warning or notice of said buy-out. If there was I’m sure plenty of people wouldn’t have bought TSP. They all would have just been content with the free version until Mindjet came online.
Granted they are basically the same app and offer the same service with different looks. I have Thinking Space Pro and I did a review on it not to long ago. I suggested everyone try it and I’m sure some of you did, based on my review. I now feel bad for suggesting it, not because the app is crap, but because it now appears that you wasted your money on an app the is no longer going to see future development or support. Now we have to hope that Mindjet is going honor the customers of TSP and any upgrades they make to their free app stays free and we don’t have to re-buy it.
would be bad business for Mindjet, and I hope they see it that way. Maybe a solution would be to rewrite the TSP app as the Mindjet app and keep it as free, and just delete the free version of Thinking Space from the Market. And then brace your customers that a new paid version will be coming out. If this is a route Mindjet takes, I give this as my advice to them. YOU BETTER MAKE IT DAMN GOOD! We, the consumers, have already paid for this app once. Regardless if you have re-released it under your own name for free. It is a slap on the face of those that paid for it in the first place. If you want us to pay for it again, it better have diamond laced borders and a plenty other bells and whistles, for us to believe in your business or your company.
It is a no brain-er, that people will spend money on an app, as long as it is worth it and they believe it will be supported. That also goes to say that the company that makes said app is trustworthy and reliable. As of right now Mindjet, you are in shady territory and need to be forthcoming with future plans. Your only other option is to wait a year or so when we all have forgotten this screwing you have given us here, and try again down the line. Don’t get me wrong I do like what you have done to your app over TSP. What I don’t like is the thought that I may have to pay for it again in the future. Maybe I’m jumping the gun here and you are the nicest app developer we have ever seen and this has all just been a big misunderstanding. Then again I do read the comments in the Market. The question is do you Mindjet? Are you listening to your customers? Only time will tell on this one folks. Believe me I will be bringing you every detail as I get it.
For what its worth, I’m including the links for both Thinking Space Pro and Mindjet. I encourage you all to read the reviews for both apps. Now even though I have been ranting about Mindjet, I do, with major reserve, recommend Mindjet while it is free. We’ll see if my recommendation holds up with future interactions.
