2017 - SimpleMind adds progress checkboxes to challenge MindNode

The new version of mind-mapping app SimpleMind for all our supported platforms is out. In this release the developers primarily focused on enhancing checkboxes and how they can be used in topics. It now supports progress checkboxes (0-100%) and Roll-up progress checkboxes that automatically calculate the progress by averaging progress of the child topics. Additionally a date can now be set on a topic and there is an additional way to insert a sibling topic where the sibling is inserted before the current topic in the parent. The conclusion is that SimpleMind becomes more progress-focused if compared vs MindNode
