Boxes And Arrows (B'nA) provides the most simplistic usage to create graphs of boxes and arrows.

Ideal whenever you need to track or develop ideas or structure your thoughts. A tool that allows you to work in the flow because it provides the flexibility of graphs and a gesture-centric lightweight usage. With B'nA you can concentrate on your thoughts, not on the tool.

You may use it like a classical mind mapping app or go beyond:
- You can structure your graphs by using the background layer thus forming diagrams.
- You can keep a lot of information in a well-arranged way by using the subgraph feature.
- You can use the 'export graph to text'-, 'copy text into a map'- or 'snapshot'-features to incorporate it into your work.

Basic Gestures
- to add a box: tap
- to edit the text of a box: double tap
- to move a box: drag it.
- to add an arrow between two boxes: tap first box, than tap second box. (The tap of the first box is indicated by a thicker box-frame, it times out.)
- to delete an arrow, slash it out: one finger stroke from bottom left to top right crossing the arrow. (A red line will indicate your gesture.)
- to delete a box, slash it out: one finger stroke from bottom left to top right crossing the box. (A red line will indicate your gesture.)
- to select boxes: draw a line around them (A blue line will indicate your gesture)
- to jump inside a box: tap, wait, double tap.
- to drag one box inside another: drag it over another box and hold
