cadiguno ,

Good. Can be better.

Must tap on the node to start writing (better if we can type immediately when a node is selected, so only we fully use keyboard and hand doesn’t have to be lifted).

Also lacks multi-user / collaborative functions and integration to productivity apps (Teams / Slack).

Developer Response ,

Hi! To edit a nodes text only using the keyboard use cmd+enter. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and ideas with us. I've added your feature suggestion to our list of suggested features. I can't promise that this will make it into the product in the near future, but we review everything users send to us carefully. Regards,

Useless app

I like MindNode but i don’t like if the app is trial it’s adorable for mind mapping, I’m sorry for saying that before 🙏

Developer Response ,

MindNode 6 for iOS starts with a free 14 day trial of the full feature set. After that is switches to viewer mode until you unlock it via a one time In-App purchase. We are currently rethinking this behaviour. Regards,


Sorry to hear you feel unheard and/or misunderstood. Would you like to share why you feel MindNode is useless? Regards,

Thank you for sharing this with us and your lovely words on MindNode! As I said early, we are currently rethinking this. Regards,
