So far, so great

It has been a helpful servant so far for my book projects. Easy to use, visually appealing design. Now, if I can find how to connect branches coming from the starting node to one single end-node at the end of my project, I will be an extra happy camper.

EDIT: Another missing feature (or a bug) is that if you press the change theme by mistake, there is no undo, aaaand gone all the color separations I did, costing precious time. Star to 4. Will take it back to 5 if I find a solution or if an update comes.

Version 6 is too slow

After the update, the app keeps lagging and freezing, both on the iPhone and the iPad. I type in the nodes and the app lags behind, reacting really late to my taps

So sorry to hear about this! Could you please send us an email to describing when and where this happens?
