I love this app. Practical and attractive design options. You can start with your main map with the overview and then drill down creating new maps from individual grouping with the main map. It’s dynamic enough that you can add images, notes, and additional text boxes. Plus I can export as a PDF so I can print for handouts at meetings, but works well as a basic digital presentation for fleshing out ideas.

Superb Mind Map Software

After using various mind map software for many applications, this is by far the best. Many automatic layouts and strong functionality.

The use of drop box / cloud based storage increases the use across all platforms.

The only upgrade I would like to see is a web based version to use it when I am on the move.

Don’t buy the mobile version

Adding a new topic in between topics is impossible for iPhone version. I don’t understand why this very basic and fundamental feature of this app is omitted from the mobile app version although the feature is available in all other versions including iPad, PC and Mac.

CSR (Linda) told me that the feature is removed because menus are smaller (in iPhone) and there is less room for all options. But hey, you should provide, at least, an alternative way to add this feature rather than just completely remove the feature that exists in all other platforms.

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your feedback.
The feature" insert topic" is indeed not, and was not, available on iPhone. You can still manually add a new topic and drag/drop the existing topic on it to create the same effect.
