*** PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE MEDITATION APP *** (There is another app called "Headspace: Guided Meditation and Mindfulness" and this is NOT that app!)
THIS, the original Headspace, is iOS's coolest mind-mapping app! Do your mind-mapping in 3D space.
"Five stars on iPhone, completely off the scale on iPad"
"This is the app I've most wanted to run on the iPad since the day it was announced, and the app that anyone looking over your shoulder will immediately want to buy an iPad just to run.
"Love the program. Favorite app. Useful and looks great. "
"The implementation is beautiful! In my opinion, Headspace is becoming one of the best apps in the store."
"I bought Headspace last night on a whim - been fooling around with mindmapping apps lately. This is a little piece of brilliance, you know that, right? "
"This app could not just be a mindmapping program,
It has the capability to become a new kind of U.I. That in my opinion that improved over apples U.I."
Headspace allows you to create items and groups of items on a floating plane in three-dimensional space. The hierarchy of items and their various sub-items make for a beautiful display of information as they recede into the distance. Simple and familiar finger gestures allow you to move around the space. Use the menu button to travel between various groups. Easily create links and travel between them.
The beautiful animated interface is like something from a sci-fi movie, but it isn't just eye-candy. You can go from an "eagle-eye" view of your entire map to focusing on a single item with a simple pinch of your fingers. There's just something about being able to manipulate the scale and space that goes perfectly with the idea of outlining.
Here's a rundown on all its cool features:
● build hierarchical outlines in 3D space
● use familiar finger gestures to navigate and zoom
● connect related items with link lines - even between files!
● change item color and opacity
● change text color
● 'Flick' up or down to travel to top or bottom of lists

Does It Work With iPadOS? YES!
Update: I held my breath after the flurry of iOS/iPadOS updates in recent weeks, concerned that I might lose access to favorite apps. And Headspace remains the most visually spectacular and functional (if not well-known) mindmappers ever created. Happily, it continues to deliver as a wonderful diagramming outliner/notetaker/brain storming tool!
This app developer publishes frequent updates, both bug fixes and new features. Headspace remains my favorite mindmapper and, for that matter, it functions as a great visual outliner with its generous-sized popup note panels and easy-to-slide elements. Altogether, it's a pleasure to use so I use it often!
PREVIOUS REVIEW: The most beautiful iPhone app is finally available for the iPad and as a universal app no less! iThoughtsHD is a fine mindmapper but Headspace is simply the most intuitive, easiest to use brainstorming application ever created for any platform. Don't believe it can be that great? Try it! You'll immediately discover that a three dimensional environment is the optimum way to display, stack and connect ideas. This developer has truly invented a "better mousetrap"! And now Headspace is a full resolution iPad for a fraction of the cost of most other mindmappers!
Amazed and in Awe...Useful Beyond Words
At first glance, I'm not sure what amazes me more -- the app itself or the fact that there are not already a vast ocean of glowing reviews.
I am current long-time user of TheBrain, an advanced mindmapping tool, which I believe is the best in in world. I used TheBrain to plan and strategize a successful business, so I know it works. Headspace is the first app in the IOS world which I've seen take an innovative approach which has the potential to inspire new ways of connecting the dots in whatever field of endeavor you're in such as business, the arts, or even sports. The idea of building hierarchies with what are conventionally called nodes is a Head Space concept that I'll playing with a lot with. Best of luck to the developer.
I use mind maps but I also use this.
I find it easier to layout certain ideas in Headspace then using a standard mind map.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
