These mind maps are great for a variety of purposes. Family trees, NPC's in a town, brainstorming, campaign conceptualization, and general novel writing. Great for you (us... me) visual types who like the GUI editing on the fly it delivers.

Lets you Mind Map a story, character, place -- then link from one to another. You really need to pay for it to be able to make enough Mindmaps for a campaign, but it has an App for phone/tablet which is why I put it first.

Super easy, free, sh** -- you don't even need to sign in if you just want to mess around and take a screen shot.

Free- ad based, and more typical of mind mapping. No app, but it does have collaboration, which is cool. I follow a blogger that uses it daily to get his crap together.

Also made a sister thread focusing on just Apps here.

I listed it because there is a GM mode (which i plan on delving into) to shake up missions on the fly and you can create custom scenarios and ships. My group plays a lot of sci-fi games and I've got plans to use Artemis for a "live" mode addition to the tabletop instead of abstracting out space combat.

That bridge simulator does look pretty sweet. Very Convention-special in some form of high-traffic area.

I'm currently enrolled in an online GM's class for faster combat. I HIGHLY recommend it to all the GM's out there. I've picked up some really good tips!
