Just like most of you, we really enjoy this time of the year. Family reunions, presents, laughter and new plans. At least, this is how we did it in the Mindomo family. We also took the time to reflect upon our last year’s experience and make resolutions for the year to come:
Keeping up with technology
When we started Mindomo we picked the best technology at the time – Flash. It did its job very well until HTML5 came into the picture. We waited until this new player grew up to be the powerful replacement we needed. One of 2013’s resolutions was to shift from Flash to HTML5, and this is exactly what we have been working this year.
Step by step, we replaced parts of Mindomo with HTML5 implementation, starting with the dashboard, My Account pages, and on to the viewer. After the HTML5 viewer release, we green-lighted the replacement of the Mindomo editor. When this HTML5 editor will be ready, working with Mindomo will be easier and quicker, no third party plug-ins and native applications needed. It will take us some time, so completing the HTML5 migration is on our 2014 resolutions list.
Giving small businesses a helping hand
Starting from our own company’s needs, we decided to create a new product to help small creative teams organize their ideas, tasks and do the follow up. Mindomo Projects was released this year, displaying a whole range of useful features. We are happy that, since its release, most of you have become more and more aware of this new extension, and are using it on a regular basis. In the year to come, we plan to beat the drum a little bit more for this product so that more users can underpin their work with it.
Exciting new features
We can’t give you too many details now because we are still working at the concept. As a little hint, we aim to make mind mapping more practical and easier to apply in various fields. This is our 2014 ultimate resolution, for which we are determined to work very hard.
A few more hours to go until a fresh start. Reflection? Done. Resolutions? Done. We’ve got one more thing left to do, and that is thanking you for all your support!
We thank all the students who chose Mindomo to help them study, and took the time to tell us how well they did.
We thank all the teachers who shared with us the satisfaction of teaching more efficiently than before.
We thank all the people who searched for productivity tools and didn’t stop until they found us.
Most of all, we thank you all for knowing what constructive criticism is – this is how we come up with better solutions.
We hope we’ll have a great New Year 2014 together!
The Mindomo Team
