As close to hand drawn mind maps you'll find, Simple & Wonderful,

This is a simple mind mapping tool, but it is elegant in it's simplicity and it is the closest app I've found to hand drawn mind maps. The ability to create asymmetric lines and having the text follow the curve of the line you've drawn is a wonderful change from the standard software approach.

I rated 4 of 5 because it needs some features, like 1) ability to export/save as different image types (i.e. SVG would be nice); 2) export as PDF; 3) OpenIn other apps; 4) a few more Cloud options (dropbox, webDAV); 5) layers (3-5) and backgrounds (transparent, color, or photo) - since Connected Mind feels more hand drawn it would be nice to be able to draw on top of the mind map in a separate layer for shading, adding photos, more detail sketches; now that iCloud Drive / Files storage capability

If you love Mind Mapping and miss hand drawn maps try this app, I think it will become one of your favorites.

Ditto the Four and Five Star Remarks!

This is by far the best mind mapping application I’ve tried and I’ve tried many. The freedom and organic look of pen and paper mind mapping with the ability to edit, move, and correct electronically!

Fantastic app!

How is this not more well known!?! I'm definitely going to recommend this app to all my friends in school! The smart way it cleans up your drawn lines gives you the freedom to make any connections as if you're on paper with the corrective precision of the computer. I've been looking for this app for such a long time and am so glad that I finally found it!
