Brilliant, but with a glaring oversight

Brilliant mind-map software. In fact, it’s the best one I’ve found with all the features I wanted. There’s a small learning curve, but once you figure things out, it’s very easy to use.
My one gripe is the save features. Why is there no ability to save to iCloud? All iOS apps have this ability now, and surely it wouldn’t be too hard to add it.
Well, okay, I have a Dropbox, so it’s not a deal breaker. I save to there instead. But then, why is there no autosave feature?
This is a very common feature these days, and I think every other app I use now has it. If you don’t manually remember to save and synchronise your work, you lose it all. So, if you forget, or if the app force closes, or there’s a problem with your tablet or phone, you will lose your work. I’m not particularly lazy, and I don’t mind having to manually press the save the button every five minutes—no matter how annoying I find it—but this lack of provision for possible problems and unforeseen events is why I have given this app 3 stars, even though I love it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback.
SimpleMind synchronises mind maps automatically on built-in clouds like Dropbox. If you close SimpleMind, all changes will be synced. It is true that is your complete tablet stops working this may mean some changes have not been synced yet.
Please know that 1.23 you are now able to use Files. And because of that iCloud Drive. See!/ipadiphone/use-any-cloud-via-files/. If you have any questions, please contact our support.

Great App Ruined By No Save Feature

This is one of the best mind mapping apps I have used. Unfortunately it ruined by the fact, that even if you have the paid version there is no support for iCloud. It also appears that you are unable to back up your work in the free version. Although it saves on the iPad there is no way to back the hours of work you could have put in to a map, in the event of a problem with your tablet. I love Apple products and I have an iCloud account why would I then want Dropbox or google drive. I believe the concept of backing your work should be in the most basic of apps otherwise why would you use them. This app deserves 5*’s but because of the lack of the features listed above I can only give it 3. I will be removing the app and going back to Coggle I am a law student and do not have the inclination or time to keep repeating my work.
