Not a bad start…some suggestions

I love this app on my phone. On the mac, any Mindly documents I create and save to iCloud do not show up on my phone (and vice versa). So that is disapointing considering the latest update supposedly fixed this. As far as features, I am the type of person that wants speed when mapping out my mind. So I need keyboard shortcuts for everything! I would like to be able to quickly go up and down the hyarchy using simple shortcuts like Arrow UP and DOWN, etc. And a shortcut for the search bar cursor so I don’t have to mouse up there for each search. Also, when you search, if you type a Capital letter for the first letter, NOTHING shows up in search (even if one of your Mindly circles starts with a capital letter). I also think it would be much easier to re-organize if you could drag and drop mindly circles in the Mindmap view, instead of having to drag to the copy / paste area and then drag it to a new desitnation (too many steps for power users). You guys have nailed the elegance, now if you could smooth out the experience you will be the top mindmapper app out there for those that want clean and simple like me. Hope you take this all as it was intended, which is to help IMPROVE your app. I love it, and I want to love it more!!!!

Bought it, but won't use it

If I would have read the reviews from 4 years ago I would not have bought it. After buying it, I won't use it because it lacks some must have features: 1) Need to be able to edit fonts 2) Needs automatic cycling of colors like every other mindmap software. Needing to manually change every color of every node is a pain. 3) Needs themes. 4) Needs keyboard shortcuts. For me mindmapping is about fast/easy getting ideas out of my head with little to no friction. This software has friction. Seems like beta software, but in looking at comments they haven't developed it further in the last 4 years. I'm sticking to Mindnode and Mindmeister for software that is more usable and continues to be developed/improved. If they kept building this to bring in the must have features I'd love to use it and give it a 5 star review.

Beautiful but lacking features

The maps are beautiful. Like so many other reviews say it lacks basics around colors and icons, the ability to move items around, change fonts, make some elements bigger or smaller. In a perfect world I would have this beauty and be able to click and get a view like the ones in iMap Builder Pro (which also lacks in many areas.) The developres of this have done a lovely job, and I hope they keep going to add these additional features.
