En av få

Många appar kommer och går. Men MindNode är en av de få appar som jag, Mac/iOS-användare sedan 10 år tillbaka, faktiskt använt under en lång tid. Mycket vacker design, smarta kortkommandon och en enkelhet som gör att appen inte hamnar i vägen för det man vill göra - skapa och producera!

Another subscription scam

I bought it once. Now they have changed to a subscription service and I can no longer acces my purchase, forcing me into the subscrption. A lousy and cheap strategy.

Bra program, men...

Hatar att bli avbruten i jobbet för att utvecklaren tigger recensioner för ett program jag betalat för.

Thank you for sharing this with us. Did you get the notification regarding a review more than once? This shouldn't happen. Sorry if it did. Regards,
