Ratings and Reviews
Articulating a complex idea can be a challenge, but fortunately MindNode—which simplifies a technique known as mind-mapping—can make the process a whole lot easier. The app lets you create a diagram where an overarching idea branches off into related ones. You’ll be able to zero in on specifics and zoom out to see the entire concept in all its complexity.
Extremely useful for research
I've had a stable work experience from MindNode, it is for me a great way to organize research notes. Feature request: that the font of the notes be taken into account in Themes.

One missing feature...
There is one missing feature that would make me switch (from the top competitor) if added: The ability to present, i.e., a presentation mode. Otherwise well done!
