They gave us real notes and speed, but now it's a little twitchy.

I'm just replying here, because it seems that a few people think that all we got was a carriage return. When in a bubble, if you hit the edit button, you are able to write a real note for your branch point. This is also where you can change the color.
Although, this update has increased the responsiveness dramatically ( which is great ), I feel things have gotten a little too twitchy. I'm sure this will be fixed in further updates. In any case, I'm glad this program is evolving. The iphone is not an easy platform for mind maps, but this software does a pretty good job and it's extremely useful. Subway rides have never been this productive.

Is this App Supported Anymore??

I have been using iBlueSky since its early days on the iPhone. Works great on the newest iPad Pro as well. Went to seek support and the website won’t open and can’t find any option for next steps. Andrew are you still working on this project or open to getting it to a developer who would?

Not as elegant, but progress!

Latest Update: finally some enhancements arrive and credit is deserved by the developers. However, the simple elegance of the original version of iBlueSky is not replicated in the new features. Were the new features developed by a different person? For example, too many steps to get to a note. Also, on a crowded map it is difficult to tell which node the "T" (indicating text for the note) refers to. Other mind mapping programs handle the note function more effectively. I raised my overall grade to four stars, and hope the developers continue the improvements, and maintain the elegance of their original concept throughout all of iBlueSky's features!

Original review: I use mind mapping extensively and (until now) had not found a substitute for my Moleskine journal at times when laptop use was inconvenient. The world changed when I found iBlueSky! Easy to use and manipulate branches, my spare moments have become productive! I create mini-maps and then email them to myself for inclusion into my larger X-Mind maps on my laptop. iBlueSky is an impressive program I recommend highly. I have purchased iThoughts as well, but found it more difficult to use... too much time spent in the mechanics of the program as compared with input creativity.... Go with iBlueSky, it's worked very well for me.
