WARNING: This edition is superseded by SimpleMind Pro. This app will continue to be updated, but we strongly advice new customers to purchase SimpleMind Pro.

This app is still available because our first customers have bought this app. If we delete it, those customers must buy SimpleMind again when they want to (re)install or update SimpleMind. We don't think that's fair. Although this may be confusing for new customers, we hope you can appreciate our loyalty.
