Since March, Docear offers a simple web-based mind map viewer, developed with some of our volunteering students, and supported by the Freeplane team. On next Friday, July 12th, at 10:30am the students will present their final work at the HTW in Berlin. You are sincerely invited to join the presentation and be first to see Docear’s new collaboration and synchronization feature. The work is not yet ready to be released to the public but we hope to completely finish the work in the next few months. However, even the preview is really amazing! Compared to the current online viewer the new “Docear Web” offers lots of features. First of all, you can edit your mind maps online and not only on your own but together with your colleagues. The collaboration works both with your local desktop Docear and with your web-based Docear. That means, you can just start Docear Desktop as you are used to and colleagues of you may work on the same mind maps you are editing either on the Web or with Docear Desktop as well. Collaboration is in real-time, similarly to Google Docs. In addition, there is a Dropbox-like utility that synchronizes all your data between different devices (and the Web). As said, not everything is already fully functional but the preview version has at least all the basic features and gives you a very good idea what to expect for the final version.
