Super Mindmapping

I checked out the free version of Simple Mind a couple of months ago, and quickly updated in app to the unlimited maps full version, as well as purchasing the full Mac computer programme.
I love how easy it is to enter and edit entries. The flexible lines are brilliant, as well as the linking and cross linking of individual entries. The many map colour options are handy for grouping similar maps.
I use this app daily for shopping lists, weekly budgeting, to-do lists, etc. Its easy to sync between ipad, ipod and computer with Dropbox, as well as sending to others via mail etc.
The flexibility makes it Especially Useful for working out complicated inter-cousin relationships in the family tree I'm putting together. I can edit, duplicate, link and re-link families without the hassle of retyping each time.
The extra plus is that its a small one-off payment. No monthly subs required to keep my multiple maps live. It fully deserves 10🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
So glad I found it. Thank you developers for such a useful app.

Excellent simple mind mapping

If you don't mind not syncing your mind maps to your PC, then this is a great app. Learn to use it in 30 seconds; very intuitive. Drag items around. For many, this will all you need.

At last, a simple and effective mind mapping app

Simple to pick up, simple to use. The kids plan homework and write mind map diaries. I'd be lost without the clarity mind mapping gives me at work. The app gives me a quick and easy way to do it all.
Slight niggle - I'd like a bit more formatting capability. More colours, fonts, background highlighting etc.
Overall, highly recommended.
