    Hi,

    I've been using Thought Manager (http://www.handshigh.com/html/thoughtmanager.html ) for a short while and like it. However, before I spend the $20 that they're asking, I'd like to try out the competition.

    It is sort of a brainstorming programming for those who haven't tried it.

    I'm wondering if anyone can recommend something similar so that I can be sure I'm getting my $ worth when I register.

    I am using the software for screenwriting. It allows me to creat scenes and then drag and drop their order and cut and paste dialogue between them. Looking for other programs that will allow this.

    Thank you,

    I've been using Progect for a while as a replacement for my to-do list. It is more of a project management application but it seems as if it contains much of the same functionality as Thought Manager.

    I agree with Homer. Progect will most likely meet your needs and you.....

    Support those that write Palm OS software for FREE!!

    My favorite is ListMaker. I find the interface more straightforward and intuitive than some of the other outlining/brainstorming programs I've tried: e.g. Progect, ThroughtMill, BrainForest and HiNote (haven't tried Thought Manager).

    I didn't care much for Progect, but I'm definitely in the minority. And unlike the competition, Progect is Free Software (gratis and open source).

    I haven't tried any of these, but while looking through stuff over at PalmGear I found a program called ShadowPlan that only costs $13 and all of the reviewers gave it 5 stars. I think I'm gonna try it out.

    i gotta put in my brainforest vote...

    it has a great mac desktop component, it integrates with the palm to do and memo lists, and i think that the interface is very intutitive...

    on the other hand, it's on the expensive side, if i remember correctly.

    Thanks folks! Progect is a great alternative. i wish i could drag and drop with it (especially between projects), but otherwise it well suits my needs.

    Ok, being the developer, I'm biased, but please don't forget to take a look at our product, Bonsai, which also includes Windows desktop synchronization. (no Mac at this time....BrainForest wins there).

    Hi,

    thanks for the recommendation. i've downloaded it. the win conduit is a plus, that's for sure.

    at present, progect is giving me a few probs (well, one major one actually: fatal error) which i am trying to fix. if i do end up having to go with a pay software then i will do a throrough comparison between TM and Bonsai.

    once again, thanks!
