Great start - so much promise

Been a brain user for 7 years - and delighted it's on iOs.
Have to say that despite being relatively limited, the app syncs and works perfectly. No problems whatsoever.
I think what would really help this app take off would be an eventually cheaper monthly subscription option, more power in the iOs app and of course offline synchronising. It kicks all other mind maps into touch on the Mac and I'd love to see it do the same here - it is a great start, especially with the ability to add documents to thoughts. At the moment the yearly subscription is a tad expensive. Nevertheless this is a great product and over time has become less geeky and more Mac-like. Looking forward to seeing it further evolve, and it's once again my go-to mind map ..... But only when online !

V10 Excellent

The latest version of the app brings iPad and even iPhone usability much closer to the excellent desktop software. The “brain box” function now operates across platforms as well as the brains themselves so you can capture something on your phone and, if you don’t want to incorporate it in your brain there and then, it will be sitting there for you on either the iPad or desktop. Excellent software I now run my work and personal life with.

Absolutely brilliant for ie dependency mapping. I bought the original application for my Mac in order to successfully complete a complex project. I purchased the iPhone and iPad version in order to work on my project on the road. Although the iOS versions are not as expendable as the Mac version, having access to my data on the road is viable. This app allows me to keep working while I’m away from my computer.
