Make your work easier with concept maps

Notes

Unfortunately, the developer no longer seems to be supporting this software.

Pros
  • Nice design
  • Maps include colors and cool animation effects
  • You can save maps as images
Cons
  • It may feel a bit too simple

Cayra is a free desktop application that lets you represent tasks, ideas, concepts and other items in a graphic, well-structured way. Cayra is based on such visualization techniques, as Mind Mapping and Concept Mapping and allows you to conveniently work with big maps.

You can use Cayra for:

  • Studies
  • Brainstorming
  • Project and people management
  • Planning and organizing
  • Creativity
  • Decision making
  • Problem solving
  • Time management

"It would be good if it didn\'t crash all the time."

Using the latest .NET 3.5 fully up to date with all the Microsoft fixes on both a laptop running Windows XP 32 bit and on a desktop machine running Windows 7, 64 bit Cayra simply crashes when started. If I downgrade the .NET platform to 3.0 then it runs unreliably.

This could have been very good software, if only it was reliable.

During the two periods of about 5 minutes when I did get it running it showed itself to be potentially extremely good. It has some new and innovative concepts and would be very usefull if only it didn't crash.

Pros
  • No central node!
  • Map centres itself on the node you have selected.
  • Very colourful and expressive display.
Cons
  • Crashes all the time.
